US President Obama is a disgrace and the sooner his Administration is over, the better – the better for Israel, the better for the security of ‘the Free World’ and the better for the reputation of the United States. The likes of Hamas, which is focusing on Israel now but undoubtedly has big and dreadful plans well beyond Israel, is having a field day at the moment. The US is not a deterrent. The President of the United States is a laughing stock amongst our enemies (and Israel’s enemies are the US’ enemies and Obama just does not appreciate that fact). Obama thinks he can ingratiate himself with these terrorist organisations but they still see him as the leader of the Great Satan and would delight is being his nemesis. Obama, Commander-in Chief, has been sending his troops to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of miles from the US, but he tells Bibi to ratchet down Israel’s defensive action against an organisation which shares a border with Israel, an organisation raining rockets down over us, constantly driving us into bomb shelters, something neither Iraq, Afghanistan nor the Taliban have done to the US.

WHAT THE HECK WOULD THAT MAN DO IF MEXICO WAS FIRING ROCKETS INTO CALIFORNIA AND MEXICO??!! HE WOULD UNLEASH THE FULL FORCE OF THE US’ MILITARY MIGHT UPON MEXICO AND WITH REGARD TO INNOCENTS IN MEXICO, HE WOULD NOT TAKE THE TIME NOR THE EFFORT WHICH ISRAEL EMPLOYS TO MINIMISE CASUALTIES AMONGST INNOCENTS IN GAZA!!

Any respectable US President would support its ally, Israel. His performance, his lack of visibility and his relative silence at this time all go to reflect a US President who is no friend of Israel….WORSE, A PRESIDENT WHO IS ANTI-ISRAEL.

Israel must, G-d Willing, continue to strengthen herself as we can now see that we cannot always rely on the US’ support. The work of Keren Hayesod and other like-minded organisations is as important as ever. Financial and physical support from world Jewry and other friends must continue. The work of the Jewish Agency and Nefesh B’Nefesh etc is so important…we need to maintain the push to encourage Aliyah, we need to keep fuelling the spirit within Am Yisrael.

WE ALL NEED TO DO OUR BIT!!

B”H AM YISRAEL CHAI !!!
