On Thursday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad posted on his website his most recent anti-Semitic tirade, saying global forces should join together to annihilate Israel. Meanwhile, in Orlando, Fla., President Obama had a take-out plate of pulled pork and rice.
The Jerusalem Post reported Ahmadinejad said, “Anyone who loves freedom and justice must strive for the annihilation of the Zionist regime in order to pave the way for world justice and freedom.”
Those words came from the same international leader who called the Holocaust a myth and entreated that Israel should be “wiped off the page of time” in a 2005 speech.
One might think Ahmadinejad’s caustic influence would play out with only extremists until one realizes that his words preceded Iran’s annual “Qods Day” (Aug. 17), a nationwide event and national holiday (since 1979) during which massive crowds condemn Israel and the U.S. with chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.”
To add insult to injury, in the past week, Iranian officials chided increased Western sanctions as “warfare.” The Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds the last word on all Iranian state matters, retorted that his Islamic republic can overcome the latest round of sanctions restricting their oil and monies. And a top Iranian official said his government will share “experience and capabilities” with the regime of President Bashar al-Assad in Syria.
Tensions with Iran have ramped up lately way beyond Obama’s foreign diplomatic abilities and sanction-only quasi-restrictions. To put it simply, the former senator from Chicago is way over his head. He’s playing chess with madmen who pick off chess players like pawns.
Obama’s foreign-relations political waffling is not only a dismal failure but also a detriment to peace, stability and safety in the Middle East. One day he coddles Israelis, assuring them that America will stand by them. The next day he is the pro-Palestinian-in-chief, dissing Israel’s president to the French president. (Remember when Obama belittled Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu during a hot-mic moment after French president Nicolas Sarkozy said about Netanyahu, “I cannot stand him. He is a liar”? Obama replied, “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”)
In 2010, the Jerusalem Post reported that only 10 percent of Jewish Israelis really believe Obama was “more pro-Israeli” than pro-Palestinian.
With Egypt granting the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power, Syria percolating with chemical warfare – some saying possibly smuggled from Saddam Hussein’s alleged surplus of weapons of mass destruction, Hezbollah perched in Lebanon, Hamas working internal affairs, Israel remains in the cross-hairs of the Middle East thugs.
Imagine the volatility that will reign in the Middle East over the next four years! And 43 percent of Americans really want to re-elect a U.S. president who, rather than coming to an active aid of our greatest ally in the Middle East, disses Israeli leaders on French soil?
Mark my words: America could very well aid and abet World War III with a second-term leader like President Obama. He has already initiated that political momentum and end with his actions and inactions, but will we stand by and watch him carry it to fruition in a second term?
Foreign dictators and other extremists are praying U.S. citizens re-elect President Barack Obama. Rush Limbaugh was absolutely right last week on his radio show:
What happens if there is an al-Qaida terrorist attack? What happens if Iran is attacked successfully by Israel? Does that help Obama or not? None of this is known. There are all kinds of things. There are foreign dictators who, without question, would much prefer Obama in office, they’re saying so, and when they talk about this country, it doesn’t differ much from the way Democrats talk.
If some foreign head honcho decides he wants to try to do something to help Obama’s election in September or October, who knows? Any number of things can happen out there. And Ahmadinejad, don’t forget, that’s the guy Obama said we needed to negotiate with without any preconditions. We have the Muslim Brotherhood rising up in this Arab Spring taking over the Middle East, militant Islam, Shariah. And if any of these people decide they want to play a role in this election. So it really is dangerous to start speculating on only what’s known, under the assumption that pretty much nothing else is gonna happen between now and then, ’cause we know that’s not true.
The truth is the world stage and stability are buckling under the lethal combination of a militant Ahmadinejad and a passive Obama – one pushing for Israeli annihilation and the other sitting back and waiting for it to happen – one creating the bomb and the other sitting back and watching while the fuse is lit.
Add to all that the Obama administration’s second-term plans to radically reduce the U.S. military!
WND’s Jerusalem bureau chief, Aaron Klein, has just published (scheduled for release on Aug. 7) a groundbreaking exposé and borderline prophetic look into exactly what will happen in a second term with Barack Obama. For example, in “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed,” Klein details Obama’s second-term: “Large-scale reductions to the U.S. military. Some examples: Scaling back the size of all U.S. ground forces by 20 percent; reducing the Navy’s surface fleet by 20 percent; reducing the Air Force by two combat air wings; reducing the U.S. nuclear arsenal to no more than 292 deployed nuclear weapons and the complete elimination of the Trident II nuclear missile; the complete halt of all further missile defense development; the total cancellation of the second SSN-744 Virginia Class submarine.”
Fellow Americans, America and the world need a U.S. president who will restore our economy and steady international chaos in the world, not usher in Armageddon with his anti-Semitic, non-committal, conciliatory, laissez-faire leadership. The very personage of the U.S. president should emanate deterrence, not indifference.
We need a president who will honor the timeless traditional relationship between America and Israel and reciprocate a blessing back to the U.S. by simultaneously observing the eternal promises: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem; they shall prosper that love thee!” and “Blessed is everyone who blesses you, O Israel, and cursed is everyone who curses you.”
