Op-Ed: Obama is Sacrificing Israel on an Iranian Deal Altar
Giulio MeottiThe writer, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, writes a twice-weekly column for Arutz Sheva. He is the author of the book "A New Shoah", that researched the personal stories of Israel's terror victims, published by Encounter. His writing has appeared in publications, such as the Wall Street Journal, Frontpage and Commentary. He has just prblished a book about the Vatican and Israel titled "J'Accuse: the Vatican Against Israel" published by Mantua Books.
Barack Obama is sacrificing Israel on the altar of the deal he wishes to broker with Iran.
The Jewish State should unilaterally act against the Iranian nuclear program, as Prime MInister Netanyahu warned in his speech at the United Nations on Tuesday, October 1, but it is currently more probable that Ayatollah Khamenei will arm himself with nuclear bombs.
Because Obama's damage to Israel's deterrence has already been immense.
Under the possible deal with Washington, Teheran will preserve the 20 per cent level of uranium enrichment that will turn Iran into a "nuclear threshold state".
Obama will accept that. Obama's record against Israeli Jews is long and abundant. He is the most anti-Semitic US president ever.
The Obama Administrations fomented a war on Jerusalem and treated Israel like a banana republic. Israeli-American relations are the worst they have been in memory.
Obama not only backs the Muslims; he identifies with them and asks the Jews to commit suicide.
Obama said in front of an Israeli parterre in Jerusalem: “See the world through the eyes of Palestinians”. And "peace must not be made through occupation". Obama not only backs the Muslims; he identifies with them and asks the Jews to commit suicide.
Obama sees the Israeli Jews as “disturbers of the peace.” He wants to see them so disheartened that in the end they will choose not to fight, but to surrender.
Obama has become very dangerous for the Judeo-Christian civilizations and values. He backed Egypt's Islamist president Mohammed Morsi, who called Jews "apes" and "pigs", and appeased Iran's leaders, who want to incinerate the Jewish State and its people.
Like the cowardly British diplomats who flew to Munich to sign the Sudetenland over to Hitler, Obama has forsaken the Jewish State. And as Arthur Chamberlain sold out the brave Czech democracy to “Herr Hitler,”- as Winston Churchill called him - Obama bowed to Iran’s Supreme Guide, Ayatollah Khamenei.
Under the Obama Administrations, a malignant growth has raised its head: anti-Jewish legislation in Judea and Samaria, “the occupied territories”. By imposing a freeze on “settlement”, Obama's Trojan horse against the Jews, the White House sent Islamists the message that this is a right which the Israelis are willing to waive under threat (his) and force.
To demand that Jews pull out from anywhere in Judea and Samaria is a bid to make the first “Jew-free zone” since Nazi Third Reich. This will be Obama's legacy in the Middle East. Obama also threatened Israel many times with "total isolation".
Obama called for the implementation of UN Resolution 181 – Israel's withdrawal to the 1947 borders (evacuation from Nahariya, Nazareth, Jaffa, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Kiryat Gat and Be'er Sheva!).
He would also let political Islam to destroy everything Jewish in Jerusalem's "holy basin", which Obama already has said he would give to the Arabs.
By seeking to force Israel to cease building in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem, Obama legitimized the Islamist zeal for the eviction of 300,000 Jews who live in parts of Jerusalem that were illegally occupied by Jordan between 1948 and 1967. Obama’s de-legitimization of post-1967 Jerusalem is nothing less than a renewed “Judenrein” policy.
First Obama served the Jews to their Arab enemies on a silver platter through his terrible Cairo speech. Then he strangled the Jewish "settlers". Now he is wants to force Israel to offer her throat to Iran's knife.
Obama casts a sinister and malevolent glance at the history of the Jewish people.
