Sandbagging America's Most Reliable Ally

Reader comment on item: Obama's Failed Middle East Speech

Submitted by Adina Kutnicki, Israel (Israel), May 21, 2011 at 05:51

Let us dare not mince words. Obama, in both words and actions,has thrown Israel under the bus, purposefully empowering his 'Brothers' and worldwide jihad.

Under the cover of allowing US SEALS to take out Bin Laden, Obama presents himself as anti-jihad.He is not.By abandoning the US's ONLY reliable ally in the Middle East he has in effect abandoned US interests to Islamic jihad too.A twofer of sorts....

This is precisely why he stayed silent in 2009 as opponents to the Iranian Hitler attempted to break free of their murderous regime.Indeed, he repeated his silent posture as the Butcher in Damascus slaughtered opponents too, understanding full well that these two actors are (Allah) bent on destroying Israel AND the US.

It is entirely possible that with the elimination of Osama, and his empowerment of the Brothers in Egypt, Netanyahu's visit was the moment that Obama was waiting for. Hoping to fall back on his tough guy pose on the backs of the SEALS, having aided in the revolutionary forces in the region, what better time than now to throw Israel to the jihadists? This would partly explain why he sandbagged Netanyahu's meeting by addressing the nation ONE day before he arrived, hoping to cow him into further submission.Paying a sop to the 'special' friendship between the two nations, Obama has laid down the gauntlet expecting Netanyahu to be shell shocked, thus rolling over playing dead.

Make NO mistake. Netanyahu knows the score.The open question is - will he dump Ehud Barak, a bought and paid for Washington lackey, allergic to defending Israeli interests?
