Obama tries to reassure Jews at AIPAC

Obama tries to reassure Jews at AIPAC (many suck it up)

** His speech is live on C-SPAN.

Today Obama repeated his plan to push Israel back to the 1967 border. Obama said it was “nothing new.” That was another Obama lie.

After his disastrous speech Thursday, Obama went to AIPAC to try to reassure Jews and all supporters of Israel. However, Pamela Geller was not reassured:

Obama’s declaration that the U.S./Israel relationship was ironclad does not reassure me. I am dubious about Obama’s promise. Obama’s idea of ironclad is sketchy at best. After all, in 2008 Obama vowed at the AIPAC conference that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of the state of Israel if he was elected. He walked back on that promise the next day. In 2009 at Cairo University (with the Muslim Brotherhood in attendance at his invitation), he called on Israel to stop all the settlement activity, and created a crisis in US/Israel relations when Israel approved 1600 houses in Jerusalem. And of course last week, Obama caused fright and worry amongst freedom-loving peoples when he endorsed the Auschwitz borders. I am glad that he said that the UN won’t create “Palestine,” and while this is elemental, with Obama, you gotta be happy with any crumb. When he said that Israel’s isolation in the international arena won’t be sanctioned or tolerated, he did not expand upon that. So while his propaganda ministers will spin this for the Jewish campaign dollar, when you really look at it, it’s a lot of empty rhetoric. He used AIPAC today to reassure the Jews ……. and many bought the ruse.

Read it all.

Like Clockwork:

Obama’s Propaganda minister in chief, the ‘post American’ Muslim agit-prop Fareed Zakaria from CNN, calls it all “fair & balanced”. No surprises here. Readers are reminded that earlier this month, it was revealed Zakaria has met with Obama to advise him on foreign policy matters.    Read more: (Newsbusters)


Oops!… Obama Forgets to Apologize to AIPAC For Lying About Jerusalem

But that was when he needed the Jewish vote.

Last week Obama told Israel to turn over the Holy Land to the Hamas-Farah alliance and divide Jerusalem.

Today Obama once again spoke to AIPAC. He did not mention Jerusalem.
And, he forgot to apologize for lying to the leading Jewish American conference for breaking his promise to Israel. (GWP)

Israeli Arabs prefer to live in Israel but Oppose Existence of Jewish State


Funny how Israel is the one getting blamed for being an “obstacle to peace” who needs to make more concessions. Peace? What peace?

(INN) Two thirds of Israeli Arabs say they are opposed to Israel’s continued existence as a Jewish and Zionist state, a special poll commissioned by Haifa University released this week said. The poll also shows, among other things, that nearly 30% would like to see Israel disappear altogether, and that 38% do not believe that there was a Holocaust.

The poll was directed by Haifa University professor Sami Smooha on behalf of Haifa University’s Jewish-Arab Center, part of an annual project by the Center to determine relations between Jews and Arabs in Israel. Smooha will officially present the poll and his analysis of the results at a special conference next Sunday at the Center. Those polled included a scientific sampling of 700 Israeli Arabs 18 years of age and older, including representative samples of the Druze and Bedouin population. The Jewish portion of the poll queried 700 Israeli Jews 18 and over, including new immigrants, Hareidim and residents of Judea and Samaria.

The poll highlighted a clear radicalization of Israeli Arabs. Over 62% said that Israelis “are foreigners who do not fit in in this region, and they will eventually leave the country.” Another 71% said that “the Jews are primarily responsible for the ‘nakba,’ the term applied to the fleeing of the newly declared state of Israel by tens of thousands of Arabs in 1948.

Perhaps as a reaction to the hostile feelings displayed by Israeli Arabs revealed by the poll, Israeli Jews told pollsters that they felt “distant” from Israeli Arabs. Over 68% of Jews said they felt this distance, and 67.9% said that they avoided driving through Arab towns and villages. Over half, however, said they would have no problem with their boss being Arab, and nearly 60% agreed that the establishment of the State of Israel was a major “tragedy” for Arabs.

In presenting the initial findings of the poll Tuesday, Smooha said that despite the differences, the poll showed that the majority of Jews and Arabs were committed to coexistence.

  1. Obama’s Israel Policy

    (Weekly Standard) — Glenn Kessler of the Washington Post goes over the history of America’s Israel policy and the significance of President Obama’s declaration yesterday that “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” Historically, Kessler finds, “until Obama on Thursday, U.S. presidents generally have steered clear of saying the negotiations should start on the 1967 lines.”

    Indeed, Obama’s formulation is more radical than all presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Ronald Reagan to Bill Clinton to George W. Bush:

    “It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders.”

    — President Lyndon Johnson, September 1968

    “In the pre-1967 borders, Israel was barely ten miles wide at its narrowest point. The bulk of Israel’s population lived within artillery range of hostile armies. I am not about to ask Israel to live that way again.”

    — President Ronald Reagan, September 1, 1982

    “Israel will never negotiate from or return to the 1967 borders.”

    — Secretary of State George Shultz, September 1988

    “I think there can be no genuine resolution to the conflict without a sovereign, viable, Palestinian state that accommodates Israeli’s security requirements and the demographic realities. That suggests Palestinian sovereignty over Gaza, the vast majority of the West Bank, the incorporation into Israel of settlement blocks … To make the agreement durable, I think there will have to be some territorial swaps and other arrangements.”

    — President Bill Clinton, January 7, 2001

    “Ultimately, Israelis and Palestinians must address the core issues that divide them if there is to be a real peace, resolving all claims and ending the conflict between them. This means that the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 will be ended through a settlement negotiated between the parties, based on UN resolutions 242 and 338, with Israeli withdrawal to secure and recognize borders.”

    — President George W. Bush, June 24, 2002

    Oh, it doesn’t help when the leading opposition party in Israel shoves the same knife Obama is wielding even further into the back of Israel. Dippy Livni slobbers over the speech, says it’s … pro-Israel. Hopefully that woman never reaches the top spot, or Israel is through. (KGS/TT)


  2. Americans keep calling in public and in the press, Obama “The Great Satan of America” and make it stick so that’s what he is remembered for in history and not that he was the first black president.

  3. Support David Horowitz!

    The Obama administration’s final betrayal of Israel has begun.

    In case you missed, last Thursday’s presidential address may well go down in history as the beginning of the end of the State of Israel. Never before has an American President so brazenly embraced the “Palestinian” cause; never before has an American President so contemptuously pushed Israel into a corner. To proclaim that the borders of a Palestinian state must be drawn according to the 1967 lines, ignoring all the issues that should be negotiated on the way to two secure states and ignoring that Israel will someday have to defend these borders from Palestinian hatred, tells two lies at once: that the Palestinians have been sincerely searching for peace, and that Israel is the problem.

    The Freedom Center has devoted its twenty years of existence to telling the truth about the crisis in the Middle East–the fact that the Palestinians want to destroy the state of Israel far more than they want to create a state for themselves; that they are planning a new holocaust even as they are denying the Holocaust that actually happened. We have identified those who want a new genocide, here and abroad, and also identified the Big Lies that the international left has created to transform Israel from a state threatened with extinction into the Goliath oppressing the Palestinians.

    Throughout the years I have called on you to help the Freedom Center fund different initiatives to defend our shared beliefs. But never before has the need been so severe as today. We cannot allow Barack Obama to single-handedly destroy Israel. That’s why I’m urgently asking you to make a generous, tax-deductible contribution to the Freedom Center today. Whether you can give $25 or $2,500–your support is invaluable.

    The Freedom Center is a plain speaking organization. We have defended Israel and its right to exist with passion and have called out the advocates of a new genocide for whom and what they are. We have published over 500,000 copies of pamphlets exposing the lies that have just culminated in the President’s shameful and unnecessary speech. We have defended Jewish students at university campuses across the country from the unholy alliance between the pro-jihadists and the radical left that controls campus political life today. I have spoken on hundreds of campuses, produced DVDs, written books, taken out ads in campus papers, Jewish papers and the New York Times about the existential threat facing Israel.

    That the President should have delivered such a blow against Israel in the face of the Palestinian Authority’s new alliance with Hamas, the terror group that tried to exterminate it, wants to exterminate all Jews, and has vowed never to acknowledge a Jewish State is incomprehensible. That he should have implicitly linked the Palestinians’ rejectionism to the revolutionary democratic spirit coursing through the rest of the Middle East in this Arab Spring calls his judgment, as well as his political vision, into question.

    Will you show President Obama that he is in the wrong by standing with the Freedom Center and Israel today and making a tax-deductible donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more right away?

    I have said for years that Israel is the canary in the mine, and as she goes, so goes America and the West. This tiny nation, besieged on all sides since its birth and now subjected to slanders by the international left in league with resurgent anti-Semitism throughout the world, stands at the frontlines of the War on Terror. That war will become all the more dangerous now that the President has put Israel further on the defensive and implicitly supported the aspirations of an organization, Hamas, that past U.S. presidents have condemned as terrorist and refused to countenance.

    The Freedom Center will redouble its efforts to defend Israel and show all Americans, particularly college students, the true nature of Hamas and its apologists on our campuses in the coming months. Between now and the UN meetings set for this Fall, we are going to publish and mail 250,000 more copies of our pamphlets on Israel. Our “Palestinian Wall of Lies” ad that ran in the New York Times will be submitted to another 100 papers in America and Israel. Our DVD and internet campaigns will be expanded and we will organize teach-ins on more campuses, particularly around the time of the upcoming UN meetings, which will become, as we all know, pep rallies for Palestinians and hatefests directed against the Israelis. Never Again is more than a slogan: it is a commitment and a pledge.

    The Freedom Center is willing to go into battle on behalf of Israel and against Obama’s careless intention to throw it under the bus of history. But we need you to provide the ammunition for this crucially important war of words. You have supported me and my efforts to call out Israel’s enemies for many years. Now that Israel faces its most significant threat since the intifada, when Palestinians suicide bombers were killing its citizens in the streets, I am calling on you to help again. Please join our “Save Israel” Campaign today by making as generous of a donation as possible. There is much to do; the time is short.

    Thank you again for all your support.


    David Horowitz
    President Founder

    P.S. Last Thursday President Obama proclaimed that a Palestinian state should be drawn in accordance with 1967 borders. Never before has an American President so blatantly endorsed Palestine’s plan to destroy Israel. So we must fight back. Over the years I know I’ve asked a lot of you, but never has the situation been so dire. Will you please make a generous contribution right away to help the Freedom Center defend Israel? Thank you in advance for your support.
