Op-Ed: Team Obama Considers Israel a 'Hostile Power'

There is no point in looking to Obama for salvation, unless you are part of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The silence of American Jewry and the conspiracy of the liberal media in the church of the Democratic Party is deafening and shocking for sheer hypocrisy, lack of conscience and absence of intellectual integrity.  

In the midst of all the media hype and disinformation campaign against Israel - many  American Jews, for reasons that are difficult to explain, are either livid or indifferent, if not downright anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic.

And although most Americans overwhelmingly support the only Jewish state in the world, the most contemptuous and hate-filled Apologist-in-Chief's  rhetoric about his "unshakable" and undying commitment to defend Israel is all talk and no action.

Simply put, President Barack Obama has pandered to Islamic terrorists for far too long. That is why Obama's outreach to reassure Saudi Arabia, subvert Israel and rub elbows with the Pope are the usual political posturing - creating a semblance of doing something, but really doing something for no reason other than to burnish sinking poll numbers and try to win Jewish and Catholic votes in an election year.

Obama's promise to fundamentally transform America with a vengeance and his doing so by empowering its enemies has become Israel's own worst nightmare.

Team Obama represents the center of gravity in the Democratic Party, yet with compelling evidence of an agenda meant to destroy America from within, it is not clear whether this anti-biblical messiah can save his minions from catastrophic electoral defeat. 

Abraham Lincoln succinctly said it: "You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." 

In order to gain a clearer perspective of the driving force behind Obama's policies, we need to take a closer look at Obama's past and the dubious people at the helm of American power.

"Could America’s security have been put at risk by people working inside the State Department? " Retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Tom McInerney made the explosive claim that there were “at least 10 or 15″ Muslim Brotherhood sympathizers working for the State Department.

An Egyptian magazine claims that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy.  

The Muslim Brotherhood’s  sudden ascendancy in the Middle East didn't happen without tacit support from Obama, sympathetic to its interests over those of Israel and his own country.  Behind the scenes, Obama and Hillary Clinton took step-by-step actions to effectively sell out Israel and US interests in the Middle East to Islamic fundamentalists.

Amidst the infamous shadow of the Arab Spring, Obama's doctrine of  self-defeatism  and "watching" from behind was actually a gambit to destabilize the entire region in favor of Islamist Muslim Brotherhood agenda.

Mainly due to the administration's naiveté and inexperience in foreign policy, Obama's failure to fully grasp the intra-Arab mindset of hostility that defies stability in the Greater Middle East along with an inability to deal with anti -Zionism, terrorism and anti-Semitism has created a dangerous strategic vacuum detrimental to the security of Israel and the world at large.

The notable shift in emphasis of American foreign policy is quite revealing: whereas the Bush administration framed the fight against anti-Semitism as integral to the broader struggle for political liberty, under Obama it was repositioned as one of several components of a tolerance agenda.

And Obama's ignominious domestic scandals and embarrassing foreign policy blunders from Syria, Iran to Ukraine have already irreparably damaged American credibility for many years to come.

The truth is that Obama has, throughout his presidency, confused America's enemies with its friends, and vice versa. A case in point has been his strategically ominous transposing of the character and actual status two of the Eastern Mediterranean’s most strategically important states: Turkey and Israel.

At worst, Obama seems to consider the Jewish State as a hostile power. He has repeatedly demeaned its leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and contributed to its international isolation and subverted its vital interests (notably, by declaring that Israel must withdraw to the indefensible pre-1967 borders). Particularly reprehensible has been the Obama administration’s indifference to Turkey’s serial acts of aggression against Israel.

The biggest problem lies in the over-abundance of Holocaust commemoration while forgetting the real dangers to Jews (and Christians) targeted by the hard-wired anti-Semitism of groups like the Muslim Brotherhood and Iran-Syria-Gaza-Hezbollah axis.  

Obama’s policies are hostile to Christian civilization. Unfortunately, as a result of his efforts to exude an impression of 'even-handedness' many consider Obama not hostile to Israel.

Obama's pattern of appeasement continues unabated but the 'sneering' contempt for Israel and American allies is deeply rooted in a flaw in Obama's character, not a result of incompetence  Obama's Chicago-style pettiness, unmitigated lies and arrogance are historical, intentional and pathological.  

To top it all, Obama's extreme narcissism and haughty contempt for everything American is an unfortunate consequence of his Muslim upbringing and of the Marxist influence from communist radicals whose main goal was to "destroy America" and  to "achieve a classless world: communism."

On the Syrian debacle, Obama's shocking denial that he had ever drawn a 'red line' was an outrageous lie. In fact, the U.S. retreat in Syria was a calculated tactical mistake and a monumental strategic disaster that opens opportunities for Tehran.

Bottom line. Obama's doctrine undermines our allies, emboldens our enemies and endangers American lives in the entire Middle East and beyond.

In reality, Obama is doing nothing to protect America and Israel against the Iranian threats. Iran exploits America's failed nuclear diplomacy and uses Islamic deception tactics to buy time for its final sprint to obtain nuclear weapons

Israel, the tiny nation that defied history in coming back to life after 2,000 years of exile, is among the top 10 most powerful nations in the world  according to a recent research study. But, Israel does not have the luxury of ignoring Iranian threats; the time is getting short for Israel Defense Forces to act alone- and they are the only military in the world that can successfully thwart Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said, "We don't thrive on military acts. We do them because we have to, and thank God we are efficient".
