McDonald’s Israel ad featuring President Obama*.
“During the working meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama this coming Wednesday, the Prime Minister will give the American President a symbolic gift: a nanochip with gold coating, in which the independence scrolls of both Israel and the U.S. are embedded side by side.
“The nanochip will be placed on a Jerusalem stone from the Second Temple period which is normally used for sealing pottery in which liquids and perfumes had been stored.”
“Palestinians have vandalized a banner bearing President Barack Obama’s image just days before his visit.
The Palestinians tore down the banner, hurled shoes at it and spray painted it with swastikas. Associated Press TV video showed a taxi driving over the banner before it was set on fire in the West Bank town of Bethlehem on Monday.”
“In an interview to air tonight on CBS’s 60 Minutes, President Barack Obama will refer to Israel’s concern over Iran’s march toward a nuclear program as ‘noise.’”
Surely any reasonable person can now readily admit that President Obama is not pro-Israel — not even in the most loose sense of the word.
“The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American interests in the Persian Gulf, Yedioth Ahronoth reported Monday. According to the report, Washington used covert back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel in a strike that may spark a regional conflict.”
Truly, you cannot be a supporter of Obama and call yourself pro-Israel.
“When President Obama announced last month that he was barring a Baghdad bank from any dealings with the American banking system, it was a rare acknowledgment of a delicate problem facing the administration in a country that American troops just left: for months, Iraq has been helping Iran skirt economic sanctions imposed on Tehran because of its nuclear program.”
“Nearly 70 percent of Israelis have a positive attitude toward the U.S., and believe the U.S. is a loyal ally of Israel. More than 90 percent believe that in an existential crisis or “moment of truth,” the U.S. would come to Israel’s aid. Israelis view President Obama with increasing suspicion, however, the poll finds. Since 2009, the percentage of Israelis who said they view him ‘positively’ has dropped sharply from 54 to 32 percent, while the percentage of Israelis who view him ‘very unfavorably’ has risen from 14 to 23 percent.”
“The United States blocked Israel’s participation in the Global Counterterrorism Forum’s (GCTF) first meeting in Istanbul on Friday, despite Israel’s having one of the most extensive counterterrorism experiences in the world. Israel was excluded from the meeting due to fierce objections by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a Washington-based source told Globes news.”
President Obama kowtows to Israel’s enemies yet again.
Bibi oft compares the Iranian threat of 2012 to 1948 and the Shoah. Is an analogy to 1967 more appropriate? Recent political maneuvers seems to say yes.
“The Obama administration should walk away from the U.N. Human Rights Council, House Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) said Thursday after the body adopted a fresh batch of resolutions critical of Israel.”
Obama says that he has a firm policy not of containment but preventing Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. He then boasts that his administration has placed the strongest sanctions ever on Iran, yet exempts many nations from them. We’re not idiots Obama!!
“The State Department announced on Tuesday that it would exempt 10 European countries and Japan from penalties for doing business with Iran’s central bank, because those countries are making significant progress toward weaning themselves off of Iranian oil.”
