March 15, 2010. The
Obama administration's calculated decision to escalate its open attacks
against Israel over a routine decision by the Jerusalem Planning and
Building Board to approve 1,600 housing units in Ramat Shlomo neighborhood
presents Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu with an unenviable task. He has
to either relinquish Israel's sovereignty over its capital by capitulating
in the face of the unprecedented American assault, or he can tell Obama and
Clinton and their cohorts to go to hell. It is depressing, and let's face
it, a bit scary that the US, which has refused to raise a finger against
Iran's nuclear program or any other rogue action by any other US enemy has
decided to go after Israel in this fashion. It is depressing, but not
Anyone who paid the
slightest attention to who Barack Obama is, before he was elected, knew full
well that this man is an enemy of Israel. He was a member of an ardently
anti-Semitic church for more than two decades. His friends ranged from
virulently anti-Israel and anti-Jewish like Edward Said, Rashid Khalidi,
William Ayres, Jeremiah Wright, Samantha Power and Susan Rice -- among
others -- to radically post-Zionist like Arnie Wolf, Rahm Emmanuel and David
Axelrod not to mention Joe Biden.
Given his pedigree, no
one should have been surprised that Obama has chosen to stir up a crisis in
his relations with Israel.
Bibi can tell Obama to
stick it where the sun don't shine and rally the Israeli public and Israel's
many friends in America to his side and so make it impossible for Obama to
carry on doing this with immunity. Or he can lick Obama's boots and set the
clock ticking faster towards the destruction of this country.
What's it going to be
Bibi? What's it going to be? You knew being Prime Minister would demand
something of you. Do you have that something? I think you do, somewhere
inside. What is it going to be? Ante up!
March 15, 2010.
At the Knesset this afternoon,
Bibi told Obama to leave us alone. In a speech welcoming Brazil's
president, (by the way what is he doing here? He's buddy, buddy with
Ahmadinejad), Bibi said that Israel will continue to build in all of
Jerusalem's neighborhoods. He also said that we would resume building in
Judea and Samaria in six months. So we'll see. At a minimum, he didn't give
in. Let's hope he keeps this up.
Keep it coming Bibi.
Please keep it coming.
A COMMENT FROM ISRAEL
administration has managed to create a unique situation out of housing in
the Jerusalem municipality. If Bibi backs down, his political position
...and our security situation will be seriously damaged.
If Obama backs down, his
international standing ...and America's diplomatic reputation will be
seriously damaged. What we have now is a "lose-lose" situation.
