As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Obama “Enraged” at Israel

The Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens reports that President Obama is “enraged” at the Israeli government:

Barack Obama “has become ‘enraged’ at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry. ”

So reports the Jerusalem Post, based on the testimony of Martin Indyk, until recently a special Middle East envoy for the president. The war in Gaza, Mr. Indyk adds, has had “a very negative impact” on Jerusalem’s relations with Washington.

Think about this. Enraged. Not “alarmed” or “concerned” or “irritated” or even “angered.” Anger is a feeling. Rage is a frenzy. Anger passes. Rage feeds on itself. Anger is specific. Rage is obsessional, neurotic.

And Mr. Obama—No Drama Obama, the president who prides himself on his cool, a man whose emotional detachment is said to explain his intellectual strength—is enraged.

With Israel. Which has just been hit by several thousand unguided rockets and 30-odd terror tunnels, a 50-day war, the forced closure of its one major airport, accusations of “genocide” by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, anti-Semitic protests throughout Europe, general condemnation across the world. This is the country that is the object of the president’s rage.

Well, so much for patching up relations.

I’m wondering if, given that Hamas was dropping bombs on his peoples’ heads, whether Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu had much time for golf and lobster this August.

Our president did, even though the same types of people will soon be dropping bombs on our heads too.

69 Responses to Obama “Enraged” at Israel

  1. The list of people with whom Obama is NOT enraged with, is longer than than the opposite. Israel is in good company with us who follow WHD. Obama should remember, that to get respect requires giving respect. Except Obama would spell it “r s p e c t”.

    • “No Drama Obama” must be off his meds. Enraged in Milwaukee, enraged at Netanyahu, and probably most enraged of all at Cameron for stealing the spotlight. Watching how he behaves at the NATO summit very closely.

      • Probably enraged that he can’t golf for a few days too.

        Of course Milwaukee to make a speech, Detroit is too dangerous. Plans on coming back to stump for Dem May Burke before the state elections, and party members are trying to steer her clear of BO. This is going to be one crazy election here in WI. And already tired of it.. 6 yrs of non stop election ads (because of the Walker recall).

      • When are you people going to stop with the race baiting, it has gotten old and most people know it is only meant to stop debate or end criticism of your so called leader. I hated Jimmy Carter and thought he was the biggest mistake America had made until Obama. He was a dumb ass and I am sure you agree with that one, because he was White. You are the racist here, you and Obama and Holder seethe with hatred for White people, it is obvious, and it is in his book. Nobody cares anymore if you call them racist, it is not working time to get a new shtick.

        • I am a proud “racist” every since “socialism” became a “race”.

          90% plus of the “blacks” are also “socialists” made so by their votes for the Politburo-Democrat Party.

          The “axis” coalition that the “0” and his Politburo-Democrat Party support are ALL the enemies of FREEDOM and Our Constitutional Republic, alien invaders, musselmen jihadidist pirates, communist-socialist 3rd world dictators……….

          …… the coup d’etate by Usurpation of the Constitutional Executive Office, Congressional seats and Federal Agencies by the Politburo-Democrat Party is is exercising it true intents, the destruction of OUR Constitutional Republic.

    • What you see are the tantrums of a small child that never had to grow up mentally, nor emotionally, while his body matured. Not only is he totally unfit for any public office, he has always known it. He can’t follow complex concepts like;
      1) open box.
      2) pour cereal in bowl.
      3) close box
      4) Lean very far out the window.

  2. Most Americans, at least those whom I know, would trade Obama today for Netanyahu to be our leader. That must enrage him greatly.
    Also, we have been wondering all weekend about his feelings toward David Cameron’s comparison to Winston Churchill whom Obama (and his Kenyan father) have always despised.
    Relations in Wales among the leaders could be tense…hope Bam takes enough nicotine gum.

  3. Only Obama could destroy American relations with our only (and strongest) Mid-east ally.

    And, in true Obama style, he is always praising Israel, etc, etc, etc.

    Sort of the way he always praises our military, whom he also despises.

  4. As a staunch supporter of Israel and Netanyahu, I take Obama’s rage personally….and wear it as a badge of honor! Good news from the UK – anti-semitism is beginning to abate. The tide is turning….and not in Obama’s direction.

    • Ditto and Amen. I’ve duly noted that his “rage” has only been directed at Israel. He remains barely miffed at the long list of other global events.

    • Ditto, here. Methinks he’s also “enraged” at MrTrumka who isn’t on board or as supportive as he must be.
      Of course, MrO knows he’s being battered everywhere and has few supporters to cover for his lack of interest in anything outside the party room or golf course.
      Public polls might show him @40%, but the real, inside polls have to be in the @30%.

      • Lower than 30%. The older Blacks are waking up to his lies. The younger ones are truly too inexperienced and immature to know any better. The college kids that back him are the losers that will be whining about minimum wage!

  5. I doubt that MrO gives a fat rat’s patootie about Israel or anything outside his scope of interest : racial politics, immigration/amnesty, and of course wealth redistribution.
    He might be peeved, or irritated that israel isn’t doing what HE wants, but then no nation anywhere, including the USA, is doing what HE wants.
    He’s mad at us, disappointed, too. Pfft.
    Who cares anymore.

  6. Israel could help its self a great deal by using Phalanx close in anti missile weapon system. The land based version, as used in the green zone of Iraq is proven effective against targets as small as a mortar round. It shoots bullets instead of expensive missiles as the Iron Dome uses. Cheap and readily available they could deploy as many as required to defend against the unguided incoming Hamas missiles.
    We sold Israel a few for their patrol boats back in the 80’s. Continued upgrades makes this system a cheap and effective deterrent.
    WHY NOT ?

      • Your wrong. Phalanx CIWS in service since 1984 with the US Navy. Also used in the green zone Iraq.

        Doppler radar matches target and bullet after the 3rd round leaves the barrel of the same gun that is on the A 10 warthog tank killer air craft.
        Phalanx can shoot down a missile going 2000 mph or more.
        Use YouTube to discover your ignorance.

  7. Yes, Obama is enraged at the loss of life in Gaza, which fired 4,000 rockets at Israel, and refused to stop even with the Israeli response.

    Meanwhile, Obama has killed 1,000 civilians with drones in Pakistan. While I’m not crazy about Pakistan, to the best of my knowledge they haven’t fired a single rocket at US civilians.

    I voted for Obama twice, but I have really had enough of him. What a hypocrite.

    • YOU are part of the problem. How could you not see after the first four years that he was an empty, hypocritical, egotistical, narcissist????? Were you blind??? I am glad that you are finally waking up though. What are your thoughts about the evil Tea Party now???

    • Why did it take you two terms, if you had been paying attention in the beginning you wouldn’t have voted for him one time? We ignored a decent man who knows the economy and elected the spawn of Satan. For you race baiters out there, I also thought Jimmy Carter and maybe the Clinton’s were the spawns of Satan also.

  8. So, Mr. Pitiful is “enraged” at the Israelis?
    Tell him to go back to the three things he does best – scream “SANCTION”, hit an 8 iron, and confess to the American public that he doesn’t have a clue……………….

  9. Obama was not “enraged” as he watched the brutal murder of an american citizen, James Foley being beheaded – Obama played golf .

    Obama was not “enraged” about the failure of the Obamacare System. He fired no-one.

    Obama was not “enraged” when our soldier was arrested in Mexico having made a simple wrong turn. Still Obama has made not demands for his release.

    Obama was not “enraged” when four Americans were murdered in Benghazi – Instead, Obama chose to lie about the attack

    But Obama is “enraged” on how John Kerry is being treated by Israel.

    Nor was he “enraged” when another american killed as a result of the Fast & Furious debacle.

      • Georgia; Remember who he bowed to in the middle east? Remember his “quality” upbringing? Remember his father(?) and his friend (?) His “Pastor (?)?
        It is a no brainer with the hoo humm beheadings, none of them looked like his sons. Notice how quick the was to jump on the bandwagon when the Florida kid was killed and now the one in Ferguson? What if just one of them (his sons) would have been at Bengazi? Same with fast and Furious. Same with the Marine in Mexico.
        Get it?
        We have elected a morphed American whose heart and soul is scattered around the globe and not concentrated in or on the homeland.

        Good luck in the future…..we are all going to need that.

        • btw
          With the four blood moons happening within one year and the knowledge that ancient prophecies are already coming to bear fruit, I have no fear for the people of Israel but for those who attack and they surely WILL attack en mass, I have noting but pity for they shall all die or at least the vast majority of them.
          Israel is the apple of God’s eye and the timetable for His plan is coming to a close.
          I watch with much anticipation.

    • Your right Georgia, but he also was enraged when Trayvon Martin the thug was killed. He said he could be my son. He didn’t say that about the two reporters who were just beheaded did he? He is only half Black but as he said in his book he has a coil of rage against people of his mother’s race. Wouldn’t it be interesting if some time during a news conference he was asked if he still felt that why, and if not why not?

  10. There had to come a point when Obama just couldn’t hide his true self. He hates Israel as he hates America. Both are the only countries in the world who haven’t been persuaded to societal suicide by operating under dictatorship, despots, or totalitarian aristocrats (although America is on its way). They must be destroyed. He supports and defends Islam and all other enemies of liberty. He is simply frustrated that he can’t concentrate on his golf games while having to deal with remembering all the lies and propaganda and changed stories he is required to keep up with while at the same time, trying to pretend he is a unifier, peacemaker, and can walk on water.

    • So Israel and America are the ONLY “countries in the world who haven’t been persuaded to societal suicide by operating under dictatorship, despots, or totalitarian aristocrats…”

      I live in Canada and I resent your assumption. I imagine the British and Australians would too, as would anyone living in a democratic nation.

  11. How dare Obama be enraged at the Israelies? Of course I am not
    surprised. He is such a weak person, and should resign, even though
    Biden would end up president. He couldn’t possibly hate America
    as much as Obama does.

  12. …’Engaged’ with Israel…would that be the word you meant to say, Mr.
    Engaged!…bind by a promise , not at leisure, personally involved committed to or actively supporting a political or social cause…Engaged!
    God Bless our Military
    God Bless America

  13. I read this and am most concerned about the writer’s motivations for his word choice than I am with any “facts” expostulated. Then I read the comments and see that the writer gets his response and is done with it!

  14. When Hasn’t obama been enraged with Israel? He came into office denying he was a muslim…with a long record of attending an anti-Semitic black church and denying that…and immediately picked a fight with Israel!
    As a lifelong Democrat and an obama supported…I’m enraged with him!!!

    So sorry I didn’t vote republican…maybe next time…I just don’t want a repeat!!!
