President Barack Obama has been heavy-handed with one country since taking office. Not communist nations like China or Cuba, certainly not Putin’s Russia or Iran, but the State of Israel, the sole liberal democracy in the Middle East has repeatedly felt American heat. Countless “peace” missions, finger-waving and more.
Obama who has repeatedly said that “Israel Doesn’t Know What Its Own Best Interests Are,” didn’t let Crimea stand in the way of discussing Israel’s perceived demographic challenges, while claiming that if peace talks fail it would be difficult for the U.S. “to manage the international fallout.” (Which more than one commentator remarked sounded like a veiled threat.) Public statements attributed to Obama quote him as saying “The timeframe that we have set up for completing these negotiations is coming near.”
While “Israel’s time is running out,” Dan Raviv, CBS’ national correspondent reported that the Obama Administration pressured Israel to stop assassinating Iran nuclear scientists. Obama’s America protects Iranians building nuclear bombs, and pressure Jews who are building houses. Let us not forget a few months ago, Foreign Policy Magazine published classified Israeli refueling and defense plan, which Ambassador John Bolton claimed could have only come from someone within the Obama administration.
While Obama pressures Israel, and his Administration leaks information, they protect Iranians building the bomb. With countries including Syria, Egypt and of course Russia on considerably less secure ground for American interests during these times, why doesn’t Obama just leave Israel alone?
