The National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC) released a short video Wednesday featuring testimonies from ordinary Israelis thanking President Barack Obama forsupporting the Jewish state throughout his time in office and for increasing military aid for the Iron Dome missile defense system, in particular. “Sderot is important to him,” said Sara Sasson, a resident of Sderot. “The Jewish people are important to him. The State of Israel is important to him. … Obama is sympathetic to our problems and he supports the protection of the citizens of Israel.” “I trust President Obama. There is no doubt in my mind (that) he knows what he is doing,” said David Segev, another resident of the community. “Before the Iron Dome I was afraid to fall asleep because every time the siren went off, I knew I had to run to safety. Now, with the Iron Dome existing, I am a lot less fearful,” added resident Chaim Yosef. Daniel Halper writes in The Weekly Standard, however, that while the “video leaves the impression that Israelis view President Obama as a combination of King David, Cyrus, and David Ben-Gurion… there is a rather more scientific way of evaluating Israeli public opinion: polling.” According to a poll released in July by Tel Aviv University, which asks: “Between the two candidates for the American presidency, President Barack Obama, of the Democratic Party, and Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who in your opinion assigns more importance to defending Israel’s national interests?,” 18.6 percent responded saying that Obama assigns more importance to defending Israel’snational interests, while 39.9 percent -- more than double -- responded that it is, in fact, Romney who assigns more importance to the national interests of the Jewish state. In April, the Emergency Committee for Israel released a video entitled, “Daylight: The Story of Obama and Israel,” which gives an altogether different account of Obama’s term in office. The video notes that while Obama maintained a “pro-Israel” platform in the 2008 presidential elections, three years later, supporters of Israel not only question his commitment, but many have also alleged that he has “done more to de-legitimize and undermine Israel’s position in the world than any other president." While President Obama has asserted that “Israel’s security is sacrosanct,” conservative journalist Lee Smith is shown saying that Obama “didn't quite have a full grasp of what the full region looks like...” “This is not how you treat an ally," he said.
The Obama administration thought by wiping out the identification of America's enemies, it would cause Americans to forget exactly what organization is in a dead heat to remove our civilization and replace it with a 6th century ideology. He now feels free to entertain Islam's worst terrorists inside the White House - and yes, I do consider the Muslim Brotherhood's ambitions to be just as insane as that of the Iranian leaders - both wishing to remove Israel and murder all Jews, while conquering the West. We now have MB associates in "high" places - such as Hillary's assistant, and those employed in Homeland Security, and its representatives speaking within the halls of Congress.
The few voices in Congress supporting Israel and asking the administration to cease and desist aiding our enemies have been over-ruled and shut down.
It is not a coincidence that the enemies of Israel are the enemies of the West. During the past 4 years, Americans have watched a silent Congress allow the White House administration to exchange America's allies for those Islamist countries who are not friends of the United States. Who will stop this insanity? Who will stop Mr. Flexibility from completely destroying everything America stands for and we stand for the US Constitution and America's allies - all of them!
It is not a coincidence that Obama and Biden are using the "race" card in their campaign ads. What they are accusing the Republicans of doing (all lies!) is exactly the same tactics used by Obama in his accusations against Israel (more lies), while promoting the Palestinian Muslims.
Can a leopard change its spots? Can Obama "change" his immoral, anti-American-anti-Israel ideology?
If you are a supporter of Israel, please share the video, "Daylight". Thank you.
