This is as ugly as it gets. The Obama Cairo speech strikes again.
On the first day of this month we made the case as to why the “Arabs’ lawyer” Barack Obama was ultimately responsible for the latest deaths in the Middle East. We recalled Obama’s speech in Cairo:
“With his Cairo speech, a speech in which for the first time an American president went to the Middle East without a stopover to consult with our Israeli allies, Obama signaled to many in the Arab world that he is on the Arab side. Obama snubbed Israel and the whole world saw that snub and were encouraged in their aggressions.”
But we were much too gentle. We were much too kind. We were much too forgetful and forgiving. We did not mention the most dangerous portion of the Cairo speech.
On the day of Obama performed his horrific speech in Cairo we described the malignant verbiage which oozed from Obama:
“Listeners of the Obama publicity stunt today can be forgiven for not knowing if the problem is Islam, unmentioned terrorists, Arabs, Persians, Arab Muslims, the Middle East, Jews, Chinese or Russian Muslims, male Muslims, Indonesians, African Muslims, Americans, American Muslims or perhaps Portuguese water dogs.”
Obama pandered to his listeners instead of telling them what they needed to hear. What they needed to hear was that it is the hatred of Jews which is the fundamental problem in the Mideast. We quoted from the Clinton Presidential Center:
“President Clinton presided over the historic 1993 Israeli-Palestinian Declaration of Principles, the peace treaty between Jordan and Israel in 1994; the Interim Agreement on Palestinian self-rule in 1995, the Wye River Accords in 1998; and in 2000, from Camp David to Taba, brought the parties together for the first high-level discussions of all permanent status issues, and offered a proposal for a comprehensive peace, accepted by the Government of Israel but rejected by Yassar Arafat. After two years of renewed conflict, Arafat said he would accept the Clinton Plan.”
Israel accepted a peace plan that would create a state for the Palestinians but the Palestinians said “No!“. After new elections and after it was too late, the Palestinians said “Yes” to the plan.
Until there is acceptance by the Palestinians and the Arabs and the Muslims of the state of Israel there will be no peace. Israel will not disappear or go away.
A few days after the Obama Cairo speech we described the most noxious portion of the Obama speech in an article titled “Obama, Jew-baiter, And The Sudetenland“. We wrote:
“The context for Obama’s speech and this week’s events is that there is, among many Americans and citizens of many nations, the notion that Israel is screwing the world and dreams of peace for their own narrow (self-preservation) interests. This notion, shared by many non-Jews and even many Jews (mostly those safely ensconced in the West Side of Manhattan and other precincts in New York City) is that if only Israel would cooperate and stop its silly self-preservation notions the celestial choirs would sing out and there would be peace in the Middle East region. Folly.
This magic wand philosophy is more properly termed a “Sudentenland” mentality – this time the calls are aimed at the existence of the Jewish state of Israel.”
We noted at the time that Obama’s anti-Israel, anti-Jewish notions came from his pastor and mentor of 20 years, “them Jews” Jeremiah Wright.
We were not the only ones who took note of the toxic quality of Obama’s Cairo speech:
“From an Israeli perspective, Pres. Barack Obama’s speech today in Cairo was deeply disturbing. Both rhetorically and programmatically, Obama’s speech was a renunciation of America’s strategic alliance with Israel.
Rhetorically, Obama’s sugar coated the pathologies of the Islamic world — from the tyranny that characterizes its regimes, to the misogyny, xenophobia, Jew hatred, and general intolerance that characterizes its societies. In so doing he made clear that his idea of pressing the restart button with the Islamic world involves erasing the moral distinctions between the Islamic world and the free world.
In contrast, Obama’s perverse characterization of Israel — of the sources of its legitimacy and of its behavior — made clear that he shares the Arab world’s view that there is something basically illegitimate about the Jewish state.
In 1922 the League of Nations mandated Great Britain to facilitate the reconstitution of the Jewish commonwealth in the Land of Israel on both sides of the Jordan River. The international community’s decision to work towards the reestablishment of Jewish sovereignty in Israel owed to its recognition of the Jewish people’s legal, historic, and moral rights to our homeland.
Arab propaganda finds this basic and fundamental truth inconvenient. So for the past 60 years, the Arabs have been advancing the fiction that Israel’s existence owes solely to European guilt over the Holocaust. As far as the Arabs are concerned, the Jews have no legal, historic, or moral right to what the Arabs see as Islamic land.”
Obama’s “perverse characterization of Israel” did indeed inform his Arab and Muslim listeners that Obama does indeed question the legitimacy of the Jewish state.
Yesterday, a revered liberal columnist and long ago, long time reporter for the Associated Press echoed Obama and his nod and a wink attacks on the legitimacy of the state of Israel. Helen Thomas spewed venom yesterday:
“White House press corps dean Helen Thomas — on the day that the White House hosted a Jewish Heritage Celebration, no less — said that Jews who live in Israel should “get the hell out of Palestine” and go “home.”
When asked where home was for Israeli Jews, Thomas offered “Poland, Germany… and America and everywhere else” that the founding generation of the State of Israel originally hailed.”
Helen Thomas put into blunt and stark words what Barack Obama implied in Cairo. Helen Thomas however is a mere piker in the hate Jews and hate Israel sweepstakes.
With repeated snubs of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, snubs which are sure to increase now that the Israelis have boarded the latest provocation ship, even Obama has been topped in the hate Jews/hate Israel sweepstakes he authorized with his Cairo speech.
“Iran’s hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that if Germany and Austria feel responsible for massacring Jews during World War II, a state of Israel should be established on their soil…
“You oppressed them, so give a part of Europe to the Zionist regime so they can establish any government they want. We would support it,” he said, according to a transcript of his original Farsi-language comments given to AFP.
“So, Germany and Austria, come and give one, two or any number of your provinces to the Zionist regime so they can create a country there which all of Europe will support and the problem will be solved at its root,” he said.
“Why do they insist on imposing themselves on other powers and creating a tumour so there is always tension and conflict?”
The clear winner in the latest sweepstakes of Jew-baiting and Israel-hating started by Barack Obama is the Turkish Ambassador Namik Tan:
As the crisis over a deadly Israeli commando raid on a vessel carrying Turkish activists continued to command the attention of top officials in Washington, Jerusalem, and Istanbul, Namik Tan, the Turkish ambassador to the United States, called Friday for engaging Hamas in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
But in an unfortunate turn of phrase, Tan twice said Friday that the militant Palestinian group, which the United States and Europe have designated a terrorist organization, is a necessary and important part of the “final solution” to the conflict.
“For a final solution, you cannot ignore Hamas. That’s what we are saying,” said Ambassador Namik Tan. “This is not the first time that we are trying to bring this into the discussion. We have told this to the Israelis, to our American friends, to our international interlocutors, everyone. How could you imagine a final solution without Hamas?”
Helen Thomas can apologize and Ambassador Tan can apologize and Barack Obama can tut tut all he wants. The Muslim behind the Ground Zero Triumph Mosque can deny his ‘Islam in triumph at World Trade Center Ground Zero’ intent all he wants and make all the excuses for his activities he wants:
“The imam behind a proposed mosque near Ground Zero is a prominent member of a group that helped sponsor the pro-Palestinian activists who clashed violently with Israeli commandos at sea this week.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf is a key figure in Malaysian-based Perdana Global Peace Organization, according to its Website.
Perdana is the single biggest donor ($366,000) so far to the Free Gaza Movement, a key organizer of the six-ship flotilla that tried to break Israel’s blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip Monday.”
We do not believe any of them.
Barack Obama started this latest wave of out in the open hate. Barack Obama is responsible for this latest outbreak of Jew-baiting and Israel hate.
Barack Obama is to blame.
