Tidbits From Israel
By Ron Jager
This past week we saw the worst side of Obama’s character and ability to intimidate those who oppose his agenda, whether it is domestic or international. For many of us, when under stress, the worst of us comes out. Obama is under a lot of stress these days, so it’s not surprising that White House staff threaten iconic journalists like Bob Woodward, the guy who exposed Watergate leading to President Nixon’s downfall and resignation. What was the big crime that Woodward committed? He proved that it was not the Republicans who were responsible for the sequestration being mandated by law, but that Obama himself and his administration cooked up this scheme before his reelection.
On the international front, even the major Jewish organizations simply sat out the past few weeks, avoiding any confrontation with Obama as he shoved Chuck Hagel, an unrepentant anti-Semite and pro-Islamic Secretary of Defense, down Congress’ throat. There is something menacing in Obama’s manner. He sends clerks to do his dirty work and make sure that any serious challenge to Obama is quickly extinguished before it gains any steam.
As we approach March 20, the expected date of Obama’ s visit to the State of Israel, we already have reports emanating from undisclosed sources that Obama expects Israel to present a timetable for withdrawal from Judea and Samaria. This typical Pavlovian reflex by Obama to always demand of Israel to commit national suicide while not demanding of the Palestinian Arabs to make even the most modest concession towards Israel proves that Obama is nothing more than a racist.
When Obama patronizes the Palestinian Arabs by holding them to a lower standard of behavior, as Obama does with all Arabs, he does it because he is a racist. When Obama chooses to ignore that the Palestinian Arabs purposely target women and children while hiding behind their own women and children as they fire missiles or throw grenades, which incidentally is a war crime against humanity, Obama does so because he is a racist. When Obama never demands that the Palestinian Arabs of Gaza be brought to court in the Hague and be tried for crimes against humanity, and instead gives them a free pass for barbarism, he does so because he is a racist.
Obama doesn’t believe that the Palestinian Arabs are capable of civilized behavior because he is a racist. The Palestinian Arabs can blow up Israelis all day long and Obama’s double standard will never hold them accountable, only because Obama is a racist. Obama chooses to ignore that the Arabs in Israel and the Palestinian Arabs in Judea and Samaria have more political rights than in any Arab country in the world. Obama does this so as not to shatter the myth of the apartheid state, the label that has been so quickly affixed on Israel, and Obama does this because he is a racist.
Since Obama is a racist, he chooses to ignore that every time the Palestinian Arabs feel that they have his back, they choose to attack Israel and commit religious and political genocide of the Jews in Israel. The true agenda, the true narrative, is not territory or justice, as Obama so dishonestly likes to pretend and convince his racist mind. The true agenda is a religious fulfillment of Islamic scriptures that demands the wiping out of all the Jews. Islamic Jew-hatred as mandated by the Koran has been around long before the establishment of the State of Israel. None of this seems to bother Obama, because he is a racist.
Nothing will change in the Middle East until Obama holds the Palestinian Arabs to the same standard of civilized and responsible behavior as is demanded of all those that belong to the civilized world. Only when Obama demands of the Palestinian Arabs to stop with their primitive blood vengeance can they move into the 21st century. Obama won’t demand this kind of change from the Palestinian Arabs; he would prefer to continue with his pathetic racist understanding of their cultural limitations.
Obama’s inclination to intimidate those that challenge him and his policies as he has done recently with Bob Woodward, or with the major Jewish organizations, is a byproduct of a racist mentality. Obama would never challenge or publicly humiliate an Arab leader or an Arab people but he has no qualms in doing exactly that with average Americans who just happen to be exercising their constitutional rights, something that is alien to all Arab and Islamic nations anywhere in the world.
As Obama boards Air Force One and prepares for his visit to Israel, I would suggest that he stop intimidating those who disagree with his worldview and leave his own racist mentality behind at the White House. Only then can he stop making excuses and ignore the regressive and dishonest negotiating tactics of the Palestinian Arabs. v
