Obama's relentless crusade against Israel
The President of the Christian Coalition of America, Roberta Combs, in her January 13, 2009 column entitled: "Bipartisan leaders support Israel as it should be," published a week before Barack Obama became president, wrote that she was pleased to see the cooperation in their support for Israel between the Democratic House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, and the Republican Minority Whip, Eric Cantor.
It seems that the president is departing from this bipartisan support of Israel and is relentlessly attacking Israel. Indeed, Israel's ambassador to the United States, Dr. Michael Oren, recently stated: "We are facing the worst crisis in U.S.-Israeli relations since 1975."
Right from the beginning, the Obama administration has been attacking Israel over Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem and in the West Bank. Most recently, both Obama and his Secretary of State have condemned Israel over its rightful policy of building new apartments in Israeli territory in north Jerusalem. During a recent visit to Israel, Vice President Joe Biden blasted Israel's building of 1,600 new housing units in territory which is rightfully Israel's land.
The only question is why is anyone surprised over the president's relentless crusade against Israel. Obama's background of association with Israel-haters (and indeed, America-haters) should have provided a clue. Obama was born a Muslim to a Muslim father who gave him the name Hussein and was partly brought up by a Muslim stepfather. He bows and scrapes to Muslim leaders all over the world. No wonder so many Jews have such a contempt for him.
As he has in the healthcare debate, Obama has acted against the overwhelming will of the American people. By margins of 8 to 1, Americans support Israel. There are countless Jewish-Christian organizations in America supporting Israel based on the fact that most Christians believe that God promised the land to the Jewish people in which they now live; a covenant promise.
The Obama administration allows nations from Iran to China to Russia to push it around and hardly registers a protest. However, since Obama became president, he and his administration have made countless demands and attacks on our only true friend in the Mideast, the only real democracy, the tiny nation of Israel. It is time for the Obama administration to cease its attacks on Israel and tend to the far more important business of protecting America from Islamic terrorists.
