Polls in the United States show that not only does the American public overwhelmingly support Israel, but that their opinions are more aligned with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stand on Iran and radical Islam than with those of US President Barack Obama.
The Islamic State has released a 22-minutes video showing the burning alive of a Jordanian pilot who was trapped in a cage while being filmed. The horrific video was choreographed, used special effects, and showed cheering crowds.
It seems that the left-wing Israeli media and opposition parties have decided that the only way they can defeat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the upcoming elections is through personal attacks to humiliate and ridicule him, as well as by fear mongering the Israeli public by arguing that his so-called offensive and embarrassing behavior will have harsh consequences for Israel.
American voters should be warned that the continuance of a Democratic-controlled Senate led by Harry Reid will guarantee that Iran will end up being the first Islamist jihadist state with a nuclear weapon. Only a Republican-controlled Senate and House of Representatives will be able to stop President Barack Obama from capitulating to the Iranians and signing a bad deal which will allow the country to become a nuclear threshold state.
The New York Times reports that the Obama administration has retreated from its longstanding demand that Iran dismantles its nuclear centrifuges, and instead seems to be willing to agree that Iran will simply disconnect some centrifuges.
US President Barack Obama must be careful not to “degrade and destroy” ISIS in Iraq and Syria to the point of helping Iran and its axis of evil step into the vacuum that would be created and establish its own Islamic Shiite caliphate spreading from Lebanon through Syria and Iraq to Iran itself.
US President Barack Obama’s West Point foreign policy speech has given Israel both good and bad news.
The good news for Israel is that the president has given up on the idea of achieving a so-called “peace” deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians during his presidency, but the bad news is that Obama has no intention of ever attacking the Iranian nuclear program militarily even as a last resort, and will never support an Israeli attack.
When a known white supremacist targeted the Jewish Community Center and a Jewish retirement home in Kansas on the eve of Passover, yelling “Heil Hitler” after shooting three people, American Jews felt violated and shocked.
This Jew hater has a long history of virulent anti-Semitism and no one can say for sure what triggered these specific murderous attacks, but clearly such an incident is hardly surprising given the current atmosphere in which the world’s only Jewish state is repeatedly, unjustifiably and irrationally singled out for boycotts, sanctions, condemnations and de-legitimization campaigns by the BDS Movement and its vocal and hypocritical supporters in the media, academia, Europe, as well as the American Left.
In order to understand the irrational obsession of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry with the so-called and delusional Israeli-Palestinian “peace” negotiations, one must realize that they embody the same beliefs as other radical leftists in Europe and throughout American college campuses, who have recently been involved in campaigns to boycott, divest and delegitimize the Middle East’s only liberal democracy.
Gays and Lesbians, as well as religious minorities, are being persecuted by the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank just as they are being persecuted in other Arab and Muslim countries. Absurdly, it is Israel that is consistently being singled out for condemnations and boycotts by human rights groups, academic associations, the Europeans, and the liberal media.
