First he comes for the banks and health care, uses the IRS to go after critics, politicizes the Justice Department, spies on journalists, tries to curb religious freedom, slashes the military, throws open the borders, doubles the debt and nationalizes the Internet. He lies to the public, ignores the Constitution, inflames race relations and urges Latinos to punish Republican “enemies.” He abandons our allies, appeases tyrants, coddles adversaries and uses the Crusades as an excuse for inaction as Islamist terrorists slaughter their way across the Mideast. Now he’s coming for Israel.Barack Obama’s promise to transform America was too modest. He is transforming the whole world before our eyes. Do you see it yet? Against the backdrop of the tsunami of trouble he has unleashed, Obama’s pledge to “reassess” America’s relationship with Israel cannot be taken lightly. Already paving the way for an Iranian nuke, he is hinting he’ll also let the other anti-Semites at Turtle Bay have their way. That could mean American support for punitive Security Council resolutions or for Palestinian statehood initiatives. It could mean both, or something worse. Whatever form the punishment takes, it will aim to teach Bibi Netanyahu never again to upstage him. And to teach Israeli voters never again to elect somebody Obama doesn’t like. Apologists and wishful thinkers, including some Jews, insist Obama realizes that the special relationship between Israel and the United States must prevail and that allowing too much daylight between friends will encourage enemies. Those people are slow learners, or, more dangerously, deny-ists. If Obama’s six years in office teach us anything, it is that he is impervious to appeals to good sense. Quite the contrary. Even respectful suggestions from supporters that he behave in the traditions of American presidents fill him with angry determination to do it his way. For Israel, the consequences will be intended. Those who make excuses for Obama’s policy failures — naive, bad advice, bad luck — have not come to grips with his dark impulses and deep-seated rage. His visceral dislike for Netanyahu is genuine, but also serves as a convenient fig leaf for his visceral dislike of Israel. The fact that it’s personal with Netanyahu doesn’t explain six years of trying to bully Israelis into signing a suicide pact with Muslims bent on destroying them. Netanyahu’s only sin is that he puts his nation’s security first and refuses to knuckle under to Obama’s endless demands for unilateral concessions. That refusal is now the excuse to act against Israel. Consider that, for all the upheaval around the world, the president rarely has a cross word for, let alone an open dispute with, any other foreign leader. He calls Great Britain’s David Cameron “bro” and praised Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, who had called Zionists “the descendants of apes and pigs.” Most troubling is Obama’s bended-knee deference to Iran’s Supreme Leader, which has been repaid with “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” demonstrations in Tehran and expanded Iranian military action in other countries. The courtship reached the height of absurdity last week, when Obama wished Iranians a happy Persian new year by equating Republican critics of his nuclear deal with the resistance of theocratic hard-liners, saying both “oppose a diplomatic solution.” That is a damnable slur given that a top American military official estimates that Iranian weapons, proxies and trainers killed 1,500 US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Who in their right mind would trust such an evil regime with a nuke? Yet Netanyahu, the leader of our only reliable ally in the region, is repeatedly singled out for abuse. He alone is the target of an orchestrated attempt to defeat him at the polls, with Obama political operatives, funded in part by American taxpayers, working to elect his opponent. They failed and Netanyahu prevailed because Israelis see him as their best bet to protect them. Their choice was wise, but they’d better buckle up because it’s Israel’s turn to face the wrath of Obama. As we've seen before, he is friend to those nations we previously called enemies. In fact, Iran still calls America it's enemy. And yet President Obama is still interested in giving Iran a nuclear weapon. Therefore, in my judgment President Obama is placing not only America at national security risk, but Israel's national existence at risk.
Obama does not, has not, and never will love America. Because of his Marxist, pro-Muslim upbringing, the Judeo-Christian worldview is and always has been anathema to him. In keeping with his worldview, Israel, the "Judeo" of the Judeo-Christian worldview, must be wiped out. And guess what - Iran has pledged this in every word it utters. Like Cato of the Roman Republic who declared at the end of every speech that Carthage must be destroyed, so Iran bellows an endless chant of Death to America and Death to Israel. And as Obama has clipped American power to protect Israel's existential presence in the region, he now turns his attention to aid those who intend to destroy her outright or to remove from power (Bibi) those who intend to protect and preserve the Jewish state.
This is beyond nefarious. This makes Obama a master deceiver. Moreover, he is a master deceiver of Hitlerian cunning occupying the seat of the world's most powerful (for now) office. And if I didn't have my notions about the antichrist elsewhere, I'd say Barack Obama is the closest to being the antichrist as I have seen in my lifetime.
I'm a Christian and a believer. I trust in God's providential protection of Israel. So we shall see. My prayer is that God gives us (America & Israel) the strength to endure such lunatic foreign policy making and gives the American people - particularly the Republican Party in current control of the Congress - the backbone to withstand his every move and intention.
