Obama: Israel “One of Our Closest Allies in the Region”

by Keith Koffler on September 24, 2012, 8:49 am

In a CBS “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night, President Obama inadvertently suggested an approach to the Middle East that places Israel on a par with its Arab neighbors, calling Israel “one of our closest allies in the region.”

Actually, Israel is by far our closest ally in the region, the one nation in the Middle East that can provide significant and reliable military support in the event of war.

But Obama during his presidency has pursued a more “even-handed” approach with respect to the Arabs than his predecessors, maintaining a rocky relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and moving the starting point for negotiations with the Palestinians back to the pre-1967 borders.

In the interview, Obama also suggested his contempt for Netanyahu, referring to the Israeli prime minster’s pleas for a tougher line against Iran and its nuclear program as part of the “noise” he has to ignore when making national security decisions for the United States.

Below is an excerpt from the 60 Minutes interview in which Obama talks about the Middle East.

UPDATE: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney today implied – though he did not acknowledge – that Obama misspoke, saying the president has repeated referred to Israel as American’s closest ally in the region.

Maybe Dear Leader should have a briefing by his Joint Chiefs of Staff on Mideast allies before he says such things. Oh wait, he would not attend such a briefing he’d “receive” it. Sorry

PB September 24, 2012 at 10:01 am

I’m thinking that such a briefing would be good before he opens his mouth at all. If he were a Republican president, he would be skewered continually by the press. Maybe flashcards would help, with smiley faces by country names that are allies, and frowny faces by non-allies.

BTW, who wants to guess which headline concerning our all-important micro ally is most likely to make the front page in the next five, ten and fifteen years?

1) New Israeli automobile hits the American highway
2) Israel computer manufacturer gives Apple a run for its money
3) Israel spacecraft touches down safely on Moon
4) Israel threatens to go to war with (insert neighbor), demands US assistance.

None of the above. Israel has never asked for Americans to fight for her.
Now, if for once in your life, you looked at a map of the area, you might understand that a nation the size of New Jersey, surrounded by hostile states, with its back to the sea, is in a precarious position.
They don’t want our assistance (especially yours). They just don’t want anyone to interfere as Obama is doing.
In fact, in 1956, if Eisenhower had not interfered in the Suez crisis, none of the problems we have in the Middle East today would exist.
But realizing that requires a knowledge of history. Sorry to burden you with such an impossible demand.

Interfere? There is nothing to stop Israel from launhing any war it wants in the region. It’s not like Iran is being GUARDED by America. Let ‘em start dropping their nukes!

Oh? No one told you? Israel is armed to the teeth with atomic hellfire. Kind of makes their “existential fear” a little hard to swallow, doesn’t it? I mean, yes, Iran could build a bomb, but there is nothing they could do with it… not without committing suicide. And if suicide is what they are after, why not just launch a war with Israel now?

You say Israel is surrounded by grumpy neighbors (with it’s “back to the sea”…what does that mean? Are you suggesting the Israeli landmass could pick up and move but for the ocean?). Well, let’s reflect on Iran’s recent history. For the past eleven years they have had:

-Thousands of US troops on their Western border
-Thousands of US troops on their eastern border
-US allies to the north, south and west of them
-An increasingly unstable (and nuclearized) Pakistan to the east.

In other words, Imagine that Canada and Mexico were occupied by China, China bought all its oil from Venezuela, China had a mutual defense pact with Haiti, and a nuclear-armed Cuba was China’s closest ally.

I’m not saying Iran should get a nuke. I’m saying that if I was Iran, I’d want one.

Using your logic, that if someone or something is a problem, then we should just abandon them, answer me a question.

You have a younger brother. He has been a pain in the ass for years, always needing money, constantly getting into fights, he’s pissed off the neighbors simply by moving in. But along the way he has done a lot of great things for you. He’s helped you build things that you never could have. He has the skills to figure out how to design things that make your life easier and better. He keeps a watch on the neighborhood and lets you know when something bad is happening.

No he’s not perfect, but you have a deep, life long relationship with him. One day you are walking along, and see your brother get jumped by a dozen thugs who are beating him to death. What do you do? Do you turn and walk away from someone who has known you all their life? Do you ignore his pleas for help? Do you throw away the common family roots that you both share (in Israel, many of the early leaders were former Americans).

What do you do?

If rolls were reversed do you think for one second that the way Israel shares its utilities, supplies, even employment opportunties with the Palestiians,would be reciprocated? Especially given that the Palestinians are a society that refuses to use foreign aid monies to actually invest in growing their community instead of on rockets and violence.

Jews are the most manipulative biggest whining ETHNOCENTRIC cry babies on the face of the earth. If an American President disagrees with an Israeli Prime Minister or what Israel wants the U.S. do for them AGAIN, he’s automatically labeled a “Jew Hater” or “antisemite”. This labeling is an attempt to unjustly make someone feel guilty (a manipulation tactic) for ever criticizing Israel’s policies or disagreeing with Jews. This was done to Jimmy Carter. The relationship the U.S. has with Israel is a one way street. It seems it does not matter to some Jews what’s good for the U.S. it only matters what’s good for Jews and Israel only. In this, I refer to the relationship with Israel as ethnocentric.
Israel our “closest ally” has been caught spying on the U.S. a number of times. The case of Jonathan Pollard is a good example. Another one is the Israeli spy ring caught prior to and after 9-11. These spies were Israeli’s using the cover of “art students” Thanks to dual Israeli citizen and Talmudic Jew Michael Chertoff the investigation into this spy ring was stymied and the caught Israelis were let go to go back to Israel. I do question the loyalties of Israeli dual citizens, especially those in influential positions in government and the press.Dual citizenship should be outlawed! If you don’t like it, TOO BAD. I am sick and tired of the Israel lobby dictating American foreign policy and seeing American’s dragged into wars for Israel!

TXnBud September 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

“This labeling is an attempt to unjustly make someone feel guilty (a manipulation tactic)”
Pay attention, snappyjack, this is EXACTLY what Obama is trying to do with the American people…Successful people, small business owners and people trying to live the American dream are HIS enemies. He pits the lazy, unmotivated, non-business owners against the small business owners, the self-employed, hard working Americans against each other.
Furthermore, it would be hypocritical of anyone to call out Israel, or any country for that matter, for spying. This has been practiced by MANY countries for years and years; not just Israel.
I’m sick of everyone kissing Obama’s a$$ just because he is black. And as far as your stance on “dual citizenship”, what about a President who is Kenyan and lies about it? A President whose SSN can’t even pass e-Verify? A President who has sealed his College transcripts and his financial aid records? A President whose birth certificate was put together by Adobe Illustrator, or some other layering software?
You have to be a complete idiot if you’re going to believe everything you hear and not pay attention to what’s actually going on.

If it were not for Hitler and the Transfer Agreement, Israel wouldn’t exist to begin with. They are an illegitimate country, founded by the 3rd Reich, and have fooled so many people for so long, that the TRUTH has been lost almost completely forever. That is EXACTLY what Israel wants. They are NOT Jews. They are Zionists. It’s just too bad so many ill-informed fools don’t comprehend the difference, or are just too lazy to look it up!
Arabs have every right in the world to be angry at Israel. The thing is, Right wing Republicans don’t understand the facts. Left wing Democrats don’t either! Both sides have opinions, but neither side understands “actual” history……
Israel cannot be a country and claim to be Jewish at the same time. They are in exile according to the God of their own Torah. Therefor, as heretics…they can not accuse anyone of anti-semitism either. Yes people, it’s that simple. They are Zionists, not Jews.
Personally, I think Islam is one messed up belief system too, so they don’t get my support either. But all this “give Israel everything they want because they are Jewish” stuff is going to lead to our doom. Blind faith is stupidity revered.

Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. “The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him.” (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

Obama never says anything demeaning about Israel inadvertently. To him, Israel is “noise” and inconvenient noise at that. Obama has abandoned Israel in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood and any deal he can make with the dictators, despots and unhinged in the Middle East. Obama’s thank you note to Morsi for protecting our Embassy in Egypt is disgusting. Morsi is calling the shots.

Aid to Pakistan and Egypt should be suspended. Hillary Clinton should have resigned on 9/12/2012. This is a woman without honor.

The Barack/Hillary apology to Pakistan resulted in a Pakistani minister’s call for the murder of the video maker.

Barack will be in his glory this week — with his peeps from the UN in town and some adulation from the harpies on The View — this man is happy, happy, happy, this week.

And some selective CBS editing of the 60 Minutes piece about the inaccuracies in the Obama ads probably lifted his spirits as well. Good to know that those media tools are towing the line.

Just an addition — it is reported that Obama sent a handwritten thank you note to Morsi for securing our embassy in Egypt and once again, ad nauseam,making the point that the video does not represent the position of the US government. Morsi has been calling the shots. But just this morning I read that the meeting with Morsi (which Jay the Man Carney said was on) has now been “quietly cancelled”. Looks like the bob and weave isn’t working too well. But undoubtedly the shrills at the View made it “all better”.

Dear Leader Obama I have never seen as much hate for Jews as I have since your election.. you are the best thing for Jew haters since Hitler. Please name your top 5 middle east allies.. would it be Egypt, Iran, Yeman, Syria, and House Saud?

Barry strikes again. Just listen to his words – he tells you who he is (anti Semetic), what he believes in (anyone-but-America first, wealth redistribution/social justice) and what he’s trying to do (fundamentally transform America).

Barry’s supporters don’t listen; they just see…color. He gets up in front of his African-American and La Raza crowds and just starts wailing away at the hard-working, the well-to-do, the small business owners…creating this class warfare so that those people he has given housing, food stamps, and government support to will despise those who work hard for their money just so they can get part of that wealth that Obama says he’ll spread around. Obama’s actions speak SO much louder than his hollow words.
Seriously, if you vote for this anti-semite in November you are just as unAmerican as he is.

I would like to agree with you as he truly simpathizes with them as if he was one. The truth is that as a bastard son of American communist propagandist Frank Marshal Davis (google “the dreams from my real father”) he was briefly indoctrinated in the Indonesian madrassas as a young boy. The fact is, Barak is not a naturally born Muslim. He is the illegitimate son of a communist and porn model. The Kenyan guy was used to cover up this fact as Frank was already married to another white communist Chicago woman with two kids. Seriously, he doesn´t look anything like Barak. Don´t believe me, just google it. This president is the demon.

This is a great example of “Watch what I do, don’t listen to what I say”. Choosing an interview with the Pimp with a Limp ( self-identified, not my moniker for him) over meeting with Israel’s Netanyahu, in a long line of snubs, should tell anyone with a brain what our Choomer-in-Chief really thinks.

These past 3 and a half years have seen the price of gasoline more than double, the Middle East in flames, Israel our only real friend in that area thrown under the bus, our debt increase by 6 trillion dollars, the average middle-class family lose $4,000 in income, and –not to mention– Obamacare.

I would look at that record and see a disaster. Somehow half the country looks at these facts and sees progress. I wonder if the half that sees this as a good thing are pulling the wagon or are riding in it?

I have to believe that a rational-thinking person would look at that record and worry that if we have four more years of the same the country will implode. If O’Bama was running a business (one that he did not build ) he would have been fired by now.

I believe a good definition of insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting a different result.

I have seen nothing from our president that shows me he even understands the big picture much less what he will do to fix it. It is my opinion that you have to work very hard to keep the American people so depressed that we haven’t bounced back from the last recession.

We have never had a period of time where we have seen this type of destruction to the American Dream. I pray to God (the one that was written out of the Democratic platform) that we have a change in November. The country is desperately hurting right now. You can help fix it by voting Romney-Ryan.

And of course the question comes to mind…What other country in that region of the world would stand for America besides Israel? In fact, what countries in that region would not fight against America in the case of a conflict other than Israel. The president claims he is a friend of Israel, but what kind of friend creates and fosters regiems that would destroy the Jewish State and then refuses to act to protect said State against existential threats.

“one of our closest allies in the region”………huh? How about our ONLY ally in the region. I would love to here him name the other allies in the region. Jordan, nope, syria, nope, egypt, nope, sudan, nope, libya, nope, lebannon, nope, algeria, nope, saudi, nope, iraq, nope, kuwait, they don’t even factor, pakistan, nope, afghanistan, nope…the list goes on and on.

Any nation governed by islam, is a fake ally at best, once this POS, sorry POTUS figures that out, he will be very well served. Or, is his complacency with the leaders of the middle east/northern africa, premeditated, because of his personal alliances with the world of islam? That is probably the most credible scenario.

Go see “Obama’s America – 2016″.
It’s well done and a real eye opener, as it brings some degree of rational logic to the agenda and actions of Obama and the radical left.
I vehemently oppose their agenda, but at least I am beginning to understand what they are attempting to do – discredit and break America down into just another second rate member of the global community (UN). Otherwise, it appears to be pure madness and chaos!
Israel had better not count on any support or aid from Obama, especially if the going gets tough. This fellow is a talker, not a fighter…..especially when Muslim senstivities are involved.

Obviously he has contempt for Israel. His pro Muslim attitude is well known and demonstrated by his actions. Right now he is catering to the American Jewish vote so he has to go through the motions of supporting Israel. His actions demonstrate contempt. I would suspect that he will get the American Jewish vote regardless of what he does relative to Israel. However, American Jews should be well aware that after the election he will throw the Israeli state ‘under the bus’ to accomodate muslims.

Obama and Ahmedinejad have coorinated their story, Both of them refer to Israel’s concerns as “NOISE”:

David Ignatius (WaPo) interview with Ahmedinejad Sept. 23 in NYC:

IGNATIUS: “I want to ask as my first question the one every citizen of the world would like to ask today: What is the chance of a war in Iran that would result from an Israeli attack on your nuclear facilities?”

AHMADINEJAD: “I have spoken about this topic at length, previously. We generally speaking do not take very seriously the issue of the Zionists and the possible dangers emanating from them. Of course they would love to find a way for their own salvation by making a lot of noise and to raise stakes in order to save themselves. But I do not believe they will succeed. Iran is also a very well recognized country and her defensive powers are very clear.”

Obama’s foreign policy like his energy policy like his economic policy all have one thing in common,they are non existent. Therefore anything he says about them is moot. Remember when he accused Bush for alienating our European allies, well under Obama we do not have them anymore. Nobody trusts this country with Obama at the helm, Israel certainly does not trust this administration and we should not either.

The Jews in Israel and the US loved Obama in 2008 and fell over themselves to get him elected in spite of the fact he is an Islamic sympathizer and a fraud. Now we are supposed to feel bad for the Jews and spend our money and give our lives to save these ungrateful, self-serving people. If the Jews abandon Obama and flocked behind Romney and conservative values they may be worth saving.
Until then, America should cut all aid and stop all commerce to the Middle East and let it burn. The entire region is a toilet. I guess you reap what you sew.

You’re right there, GS. Obama has so much hatred for Israel that he visibly struggles to maintain the taqiyaa that he is a reasonable world leader whenever the subject comes up. From disrepecting the Prime Minister to publicly bidding the country back to its indefensible 1967 borders to suggesting they give up their capital and completely ignore their history and religion, Obama has made it perfectly clear he just wants Israel gone.
