Obama politicizes Jewish high holy days

By Pamela Geller

The Times of Israel reported Sunday that “President Barack Obama is set to make a pre-Rosh Hashana conference call to some 1,000 U.S. rabbis in which he will discuss key issues of the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the hopes that the spiritual leaders will raise enthusiasm for those talks among their congregants in their High Holiday speeches.”

This is so reprehensible – where to begin? Why doesn’t Obama use the elaborate gala iftar dinners he hosts at the White House to encourage the Muslim world to expunge from the Quran the Islamic Jew-hatred that fuels the war on the Jews in Israel and the world? Why doesn’t Obama address the genocidal rhetoric that is broadcast daily in Muslim media against the Jews? Why doesn’t Obama use his “Muslim Outreach” to warn the Muslim world that the U.S. will withhold aid if the schools continue to teach Jew-hatred and incitement to violence?

This is really disgusting. And it is nothing new. Obama’s bullying of Israel and the Jewish people is constant throughout his administration. Last April, White House Dossier reported that “because of the sequester … a planned reception for American Jews is getting the short end of the stick. Many other events are proceeding as planned, but according to the Jewish news service JTA, the annual White House celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month is canceled. ‘Jewish invitees usually include luminaries in the arts, sports and sciences, lawmakers, armed services personnel and the Israeli ambassador, as well as organizational leaders and political supporters of the president.'”

And when he pressured Israel to make new concessions, including freeing bloody jihadis from prison, in order to restart “peace talks” with the “Palestinians,” rockets hit the tiny Jewish state. You can talk peace all you want with those who want it, but it is irrelevant when the enemy is bent on your defeat. The Israelis have never initiated hostilities but have merely defended themselves from an enemy vowed to destroy them. The genocidal Islamic jihadists in Gaza made the point quite plainly last March as Obama visited Israel, by firing rockets into Israel. Hamas and the PA do not desire peace. Their religious mandate is the destruction of the state of Israel. That is the reality. Obama’s fanciful rhetoric is fantasy.

Why did Obama even go to Israel? The Muslim Brotherhood advocate in the White House refused to speak to the Knesset. So what was he doing there? He went on the offensive against Israel, and he did it from the Jewish homeland, while the notoriously leftist Israeli press applauded Obama’s land-confiscation policy.

He even erased established and undisputed (aside from the jihadists) Israeli territory. The Washington Free Beacon reported that “the map of the Middle East displayed in an Obama administration video released days before President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel shows the Jewish state dispossessed of substantial parts of its current territory, including its capital. The map of Israel, displayed repeatedly during the video, shows the Golan Heights, Jerusalem, northern Israel and areas surrounding what is currently the West Bank as non-Israeli territory. The Golan Heights is shown as part of Syria; Jerusalem is shown as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon.”

Obama’s war on America’s No. 1 ally in the Middle East just keeps getting hotter. This is exactly what I warned of in my book “The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America.”

His closest confidantes and mentors are/were vicious Jew-haters. This is not without disastrous consequences. Obama’s catastrophic anti-freedom foreign policy was instrumental in the rise of jihadist and Islamic supremacist regimes across the Middle East and North Africa.

And now this. Obama keeps heaping one failure after another on top of his epic anti-freedom foreign policy disaster. Nevertheless, there are certainly enough Jewicidal schmucks posing as rabbis who will sell out the Jewish people on this.

Is it too much to ask that the Jewish people be free of Obama’s harassment and bullying on their highest holy days?
