Letter to Nowhere: State Department Struggles to Cover Obama’s Waffle on Israel (Video)

Here in Israel everyone, including our government is pretty surprised that ‘Natural Growth’ has been chosen as such a conflict subject for the Obama administration. It is hard to understand why there is such obstinacy and these harsh demands, this natural growth policy has been in effect for decades in our major settlement blocks?

We intend to keep those blocks no matter what, Jerusalem is our capital no matter what. All irrespective of administrations, new peace initiatives, or even new fangled ‘appeasement efforts’. We have elected, now and previously governments with the implicit expectation that this reality persist as this is our national policy. Even the pliant Olmert / Livni peace process love fest was on record as fully opposed to such a freeze. Even the more dovish Labor leader Defense Minister Ehud Barak is in full agreement – THE MAN from TABA! The guy who Clinton got to nearly sell the whole farm while down in Washington, what more can Obama possibly want from us? Israeli policy has not changed, American policy has. Or seemingly, a desire to create an artificial conflict where non should exist has been put forth publicly by the Obama administration.

Letter from Bush

Before the Gaza withdrawals, we sought direct assurances regarding our major settlement blocks, Ariel Sharon got those assurances from President Bush in the form of letters. Further, earlier in the 2002 Bush White House speech 1st calling for a Palestinian State the President acknowledged realities and changes / facts on the ground. He acknowledged these settlement blocks and these realities yet Obama cannot? So far, Israel’s concerns in the matter seem to be ignored, and the Obama administration has made its pressure on Israel very public indeed. At the same time, few seem willing to comment directly on the US commitments to Israel regarding natural growth.

Does the White House support commitments made by Presidents on behalf of the United States of America or not?

 

James Rosen (in the audio) from Fox News follows up strongly – Twice!.. He seems to want an answer as well.

Obama’s Latest Genius: Israel Should Join NPT says State Department (Updated)

I appease, therefore I am:
The Obama Assault on Allies continues..

(JPOST ) Israel should join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), a pact intended to limit the spread of nuclear weapons, a top US official said Tuesday.

“Universal adherence to the NPT itself, including by India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea…remains a fundamental objective of the United States,” Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller was quoted by Reuters as saying at a meeting of NPT signatories. Gottemoeller would not say whether the US intended to press Israel to join the treaty.

Former prime minister Ariel Sharon’s chief strategist, Dov Weisglass, said Gottemoeller’s comments were very alarming. “If these statements indicate a change in American policy on this issue, I believe this may be the most worrisome development for Israel’s security in many years,” he told Army Radio.

Just how intent is the new administration in totally weakening and destroying the State of Israel is a question we should start asking?

  • With Samantha Power on the national security council (who advocated US forces invade Israel to protect the Palestinians from genocide) whispering sweet nothings in his ear.
  • A twenty year stint in the Church of ‘we hate Israel, America & Jews’ under his belt.
  • A Chief of Staff who is an Israeli American ‘Ballerina’
  • A Sec. of State who threatens to quid pro quo us to death in ‘return’ for helping stem our common mortal enemy Iran.
  • A National Security Advisor who sends telegrams to Europe boasting of how ‘forceful America intends to be against its ally Israel’ including language involving not ‘rolling us under a bus’ just yet
  • A VP who when he isn’t shoving a full boot in his mouth counts us as best friends, yet threatened to terminate our Military Aid..

I can’t say I’m all too surprised.

Israel’s nuclear ambiguity and deterrent has safeguarded the State for over 40 years, and has been a corner stone of our security & defense policy, and incidentally Israel has been a corner stone of America’s security and defense policy for decades now under that very same ambiguity.

The apparent lengths this administration in America intends to go to in order to wring out pain from Israel as a policy of appeasing the biggest dregs on the planet appears astounding nonetheless.

Bert & Ernie have taken over America

Even more frightening, Obama and his new administration really do believe that America, Israel and everyone else can just dismantle all the nuclear weapons, live safely & peacefully ever after.. and all the bad guys everywhere will all just go along too! Nuclear terrorism, no a problem, rogue regimes? Who needs ‘em, why worry? It boggles the mind. Its as if the United States of America is being run by the producers of Sesame Street.

Update: From Haaretz

[...] A senior Foreign Ministry official voiced amazement Wednesday at the U.S. call for Israel to join the treaty.

“The Non-Proliferation Treaty has failed to prevent any country that wanted to from obtaining nuclear weapons,” the source said.

“The examples of Libya, Iraq, the current example of Iran, which signed the treaty, only demonstrates this; therefore, it is hard to understand the insistence that Israel should sign the treaty as a miracle cure for the world’s ills.” [...]

Yup, we’re amazed all right.. Our #1 ally on the planet is being run by a bunch of amateurs who frankly don’t have a clue what they are doing, either that or this is simply the most hostile & sinister American administration to the State of Israel EVER in the over 6 decade long relationship – Currently enjoying 80% American Jewry support rates, go figure?
