To date, the only real democracy that exists in the Middle East is Israel. The United States has supported Israel’s right to exist since it re-established itself as a country in 1949. But that seems to be changing.
President Obama has gone out of his way to create tension and animosity between the United States and Israel. Earlier this year, he publicly stated that Israel should return to its pre-1967 borders and give up large areas of land to the Palestinian Authority. When making that statement, Obama knew full well that this was not a negotiable item with Israel.
Furthermore, Israel has no desire to carry out peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, since they do not recognize Israel’s right to exist and have vowed to destroy them. Yet, Obama continues to pressure Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to come to the peace table with them.
Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group controls the Gaza region and has become the winner of the latest Palestinian elections. Hamas has repeatedly stated their intentions of destroying the nation of Israel. Yet, Obama wants Israel to come to the peace table to talk with them.
The Palestinian Authority has filed a formal request with the United Nations asking that independent Palestine be officially granted UN membership. Some political observers believe that Obama is using a form of political extortion to force Netanyahu to the peace table by offering to veto Palestine’s UN membership. However Obama has not made any statements or indications of how he will vote on the matter, which has some Israeli supporters nervous.
Many political analysts believe that Obama is determined to ‘cut Israel down to size’ and coerce them to bend and bow to his demands. Just how far Israel will go to meet Obama’s whims are yet to be determined, but one must keep in mind that Israel is a proud nation that has stood against everyone else around them, and may do so again.
One has to wonder why President Obama seems hell bent on destroying Israel, one of the US’s only allies in the Middle East, if it isn’t for his obvious Muslim affinity and his attempts to turn all of our faces toward Mecca.
