Whose Side Is He On?

In what can only be considered an attempt to pressure Israel into an untenable situation, the Obama Administration is using the upcoming UN question as the means by which to pressure Israel to capitulate on territorial issues in negotiations with the Palestineans.  For all intents and purposes, the State Department is using the stick of an upcoming UN vote on Palestinean statehood to try to crowd Israel into further concessions.  We have already learned that there can be no peace to be gained from trading away territory, and Israel has paid a terrible price for past concessions in that vein, but now we’re looking at a direct threat to Israel’s existence.

The US State Department attempting to box Israel into accepting conditions it cannot survive in exchange for the US veto at the UN.  Make no mistake about it: This is a dangerous game of chicken, but if Israel yields, they’re as good as dead.  On the other hand, if they don’t yield, we’re looking at a potentially explosive situation, and the Obama administration is gambling that Israel will surrender the point to its own detriment.  I believe we Americans who understand the truth of this situation need to stand with Israel, in the name of all that is good and decent and let the Israeli government know that we understand a rogue element is now running a US foreign policy we, the American people, do not support.

Israel has a hard enough time under the best of conditions, but in this stage-managed “Arab Spring” fomented and supported by the Obama State Department, it’s clear that leftists and Islamists have joined forces to change the world in a way favorable to both.  The leftists want all of the West, and the Islamists want all of the Middle East.  The deal struck between them requires Israel’s destruction, with the world to be divided between four great empires: The West, Islam, Russia, and China.  Everybody else is to be squeezed out or absorbed.  Israel is the pawn to be yielded by the left.  It’s Israel that the left will hand over in a show of feigned surprise and shock when the Islamic world attacks.

Even now, the Obama administration is rushing to shore up its support among Jews in the United States, but I believe the bloom is off that particular rose, and there’s nothing to be recovered at this point.  Even otherwise liberal American Jews are beginning to realize that this administration is no friend of Israel, and certainly no friend of the Jewish people.  The whole situation is beginning to take on vaguely apocalyptic overtones, as Israel is being left with no choice but to consider the most strenuous forms of defense.  In short, Israel is being backed into a corner from which they will have no choice but to defend itself, and there will be a new narrative about Israel being the aggressor, as the Palestineans have tried to convey through propaganda for more than three decades.  It must be considered the most grave action of this administration should it proceed on this course, but there’s no sign they intend to be deterred from the actions already in progress.

This would be considered a dramatic foreign policy failure in any previous administration, but the truth in this instance is that these are the ends the Obama administration has been pursuing for the length of its entire existence.  Worse, the Palestineans are being incited to a level of fervor in expectation of some move to statehood that is outrageous, but their pronouncements on the subject make clear that this isn’t about some nebulous notion of “peace.”  It is a doctrine of one-sided segregation, whereby Israel will be compelled to continue accepting Palestineans, and the Palestineans will purge all Jews from the land they hope to control.

In short, what the Palestineans are promising is “ethnic cleansing,” a principle with which they’ve always agreed.  Those who seek to downplay this issue, or the importance of what’s being done by the Obama administration simply aren’t examining the facts.  For all our solemn oaths asserting “Never again,” what we’re really seeing now is the attempt to do it again, and this time, the final solution is to be final if the radical left and the Islamists are permitted to have their way.  It’s time for the American people to stand and oppose this rogue administration before it brings about World War III.  For all their talk about peace, the way in which they’re striving toward a war suggests Americans had better wake up soon.
