Yes We Can. Stop Laughing, I Really Think We Can

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

President Obama’s thought processes are interesting. They appear to go something like this, and he directs his personal appeal straight at the hearts and minds of American Jews

“I have a dream: I wish to smash the nation of Israel for daring to democratically and freely elect a Prime Minister whom I personally dislike.

I intensely dislike the elected Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, because he constantly insists on speaking up on behalf of HIS vision for the state of Israel, when my own vision for the state of Israel is very different.

I fully support Jerusalem as the sole and eternal undivided capital of the sovereign state of Israel. I am a man of principle so I firmly held this view throughout my election campaign.

I was elected 6 years ago and re-elected 2 years ago. I now no longer support my own view. Instead, I demand that Benjamin Netanyahu give up half of Jerusalem to create the capital city of something called Palestine.

And no, Palestine does not have to reciprocate either by recognising Israel or by toning down its jihadi rhetoric against the Jewish state. In fact, Palestine does not even need to pay its electric bill to Israel, a massive debt currently totalling about 1 billion US dollars. Even though we, via our US Treasury, the EU and the UN, have already given Palestine the money to settle this bill. That money is unaccounted for at this present time but there is no point in getting bogged down on irrelevant details.

I know, just KNOW, that if only the Jews give up half of Jerusalem, all the Middle East’s problems will evaporate overnight. IS will stop raping and then beheading Yazidis, al Shabbab will no longer kidnap and sell teenage Christian girls in Nigeria, Boko Haram will not butcher Christians in Kenya, the Taliban will not kill schoolgirls in Afghanistan for daring to acquire an education, Iran will stop waging proxy wars in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen, and al Qaeda will congratulate me for killing Osama bin Laden, who as we know was very un-Islamic and did not represent Islam in any way, shape or form. In fact, none of the above represent Islam. Trust me on this, I know what I am talking about. I am not a Muslim, but believe me when I say that I am a better judge of what the Muslim faith is all about than these Muslims are. They don’t know their religion, I do. Just because they quote chapter and verse from the Quran, just because they can identify passages in the hadiths and the suras to support their views, doesn’t mean that they are correct. I am correct, they are not.

Jews need to stop worrying about giving up half of Jerusalem and converting the Jewish provinces of Judea and Samaria into the state of Palestine, because take it from me when I say that territorial compromise is what is needed to forge peace. It worked when Israel withdrew from Lebanon, it worked when Israel withdrew from Gaza.

OK, so it didn’t work either time. And Fatah, Islamic Jihad, Hamas, the PLO and the Palestinian Authority repeatedly – and openly – affirm that any foothold they get in Judea and Samaria will merely be a springboard for taking over the rest of the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. That is to say all of Israel, kicking into the sea any Jews who survive the Palestinian onslaught. But hey, that’s just rhetoric, they don’t really mean it. I didn’t mean it when I said Jerusalem must remain the sole and eternal undivided capital of the state of Israel, and look where I am now…

Trust me on this one.

In my bid to clip Netanyahu’s wings I have now empowered the mullahs of Iran, a state that has carried out massive terrorist campaigns against Israelis, Americans, Britons, Argentinians, Lebanese, Bulgarians, and Jews everwhere.

I empowered Iran by rescuing its theocratic, actively anti-democratic regime from the brink of collapse. I engineered an economic, political, strategic and diplomatic rescue. STOP obsessing about their nuclear ambitions. So they repeatedly claim they want to annihilate Israel. And the USA. Do I look worried? They’re just saying that, they don’t really mean it. Trust me on this.

My name is Barack Obama and in my spare time I do President impressions.

In exchange for aiding Iran – while thwarting reactionary, conservative US allies such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel – I want your full assistance and unquestioning support, as US Jews. The name of the game today is progress – we cannot any longer be shackled to tired old alliances. And stop obsessing about the word ‘loyalty‘ – it’s not about loyalty, it’s about legacy. My legacy. I need one.

At these existential crossroads I need your assistance. The assistance I want from you is your blind support for me in everything I do.

I know my foreign-policy record appears to show abysmal failure on every single count in the more than 6 years I have been in power – the security and/or political catastrophes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Egypt, Russia, China, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Yemen all speak their clear language – but things aren’t what they seem. Only recently I went on record as showcasing my foreign-policy successes in Yemen – and see, with our new allies in Teheran we are gradually creating stability there, with Yemen in the control of Iranian-backed Houthis. Stability will ensue, I promise you. Not with old alliances but with new ones – alliances that I assure you we can all trust.

In the same vein and backed by my success in Yemen I want you to trust me when I say I really, truly, know what I am doing with regard to the future, the very existence, of the one and only Jewish state in the entire world, Israel.

No, seriously, trust me on this one, I know what I am doing. If only Netanyahu hadn’t survived the political coup I engineered against him in the runup to the Israeli elections, which the Israeli electorate foolishly decided to ignore, we wouldn’t even be having this conversation now, so really it’s all his fault. Blame Bibi. I do.

I am not allowed to run for the US Presidency for a third term, so I would like you all to back me for my remaining two years, and I urge you all to unquestioningly back my favoured candidate to take over after me: Hillary Clinton. She says some very nice things about Israel. Trust her on that. I know I do.

Thank you for your unquestioning support and for assisting me in my social experiment. And before you can ask, my answer is still “Yes We Can.” Stop asking what we can, you’re getting REALLY irritating.

Regards, Barack Obama.”

“PS: I do President impressions in my spare time.”

Does Barack Obama Even Remember What He Says?

Friday, March 20th, 2015

What’s that saying about ‘the pot calling the kettle black’?
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest characterized Netanyahu’s suggestion that Arabs were voting ‘in droves’ against him as a “cynical Election Day tactic” and questions Netanyahu’s commitment to peace.

In other words, Barack Obama doesn’t approve of cynical election day tactics.

Really?

Let me see now; I wonder who said the following:

“Let me be clear. Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable … any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”

Read that last bit again:

“Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”

Today Obama, furious that he lost the Israeli elections, is reportedly planning on punishing Netanyahu – and all of Israel – by supporting the Palestinian terrorists’ position on statehood. A unilateral move that entirely ignores every single one of the above commitments.

Remember that the above are the words of Barack Obama. In his defence, he spoke them while he was candidating for election to the Presidency.

He spoke them before he became President Obama. Once elected, he no longer needed to keep to his word.

And today he professes indignation over an Israeli statesman whom he accuses of “cynical election day tactics”…

Candidate Obama, who through outright dishonesty and blatant lying managed to fool sufficient numbers of Americans into voting for him, turning him into President Obama, now accuses Benjamin Netanyahu of using “cynical election day tactics” to retain the premiership.

After receiving a massive barracking (no pun intended) in the press for being just about the only leader of a democratic nation not to congratulate Netanyahu on his electoral win, Obama waited a few days and then, shamed into action, chose to call the Israeli premier at two-thirty in the morning.

The sheer immaturity, the back-biting, spiteful puerility and spoilt-girl antics of the current incumbent of the White House are unsurpassed in the annals of diplomacy.

Obama needs to acknowledge that he lost his election campaign in Israel. It may be galling to Obama, especially bearing in mind the significant sums of US taxpayer dollars spent on the Israeli election campaign, but he needs to reconcile himself to the fact that, scarcely surprisingly, the Israeli electorate chose – well – they chose an ISRAELI to lead the nation, rather than the proxy favoured by a massively discredited American who already leads his own nation. Well, kind of…

Barack: get over it, you lost the Israeli election. Now get on with your life. And leave Israel to do what it needs to do to live its own life in its troubled neck of the woods.

The Emperor’s New Clothes Are Embarrassingly Transparent

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Apparently Barack Obama is the President, Prime Minister and National Saviour of the Jewish state of Israel.

He is also the Global Conscience of the entire world.

In his own mind, at least.

Yesterday, March 18th 2015, it became clear that:

The administration of President Barack Obama will not accept Netanyahu’s policy reversal since his historic speech at Bar-Ilan University in 2009 and have handled his statements as driven by electioneering.”

(Reported by Ynetnews March 18, 2015)

As the above curt report makes clear, President/Prime Minister/National Saviour and Global Conscience Barack Obama does not approve of policy reversals.

Interestingly, here is what this very same Barack Obama had to say in 2008 on the subject of Iran’s nuclear weapons strategy and Israel’s capital city Jerusalem. Remember, however, that back then, in 2008, Obama was just Senator Obama, candidate for the Presidency. Today that same Obama is President.

So of course this is not policy reversal. Not at all, and here’s the explanation.

The salient point is that he had one policy as Candidate Obama, and a totally different one as President Obama. Now THAT’s consistency! So don’t go confusing that steadfast, pre-planned tactic with policy reversal, don’t go accusing him of folding in the face of dangerous demands by the sworn enemies of America’s staunch ally Israel, enemies such as the terrorists who rule in Tehran and Ramallah.

We knew, in 2002, that Iran supported terrorism. We knew Iran had an illicit nuclear program. We knew Iran posed a grave threat to Israel … We will also use all elements of American power to pressure Iran. I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon“.

(Transcript of Senator Obama’s speech to AIPAC, June 4, 2008)

And:

Let me be clear. Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable … (any) agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”

(Haaretz, June 4, 2008)

Like I said, the above statements, which totally and irreversibly contradict his current positions on both Iran and Jerusalem, can in no way be misconstrued as flip-flopping or policy reversal – those are mistakes made by mere mortals, and Obama is elevated way beyond that meagre level. They are NOT policy reversals because he has consistently maintained two policies, one as Candidate Obama and a totally different, entirely incompatible, one as President Obama.

So please stop picking on the POTUS and join him in focusing your venom on elected Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu, leader of Israel’s Likud party. That man Netanyahu, whose sole claim to fame is that he is an Israeli politician representing what he sees as Israeli interests, needs to be taken down a peg or two. Preferably in public, so that US Democratic voters can see just how powerful President Obama is. That power is not so much in evidence, it has to be admitted, when Obama is dealing with Iran. Or Russia. Or North Korea. Or China. Or Cuba. Or Libya. Or Iraq. Or Syria. Or Yemen. Or Pakistan. But at least when it comes to those pesky varmints in Jerusalem, in particular their elected leader Netanyahu. Incidentally, the only elected leader in the only democratic state in the entire Middle East.

And yes, there is an ever so slight element of irony in what I have written above.

Obama now needs to accept with good grace that he lost his electoral battle to head the Jewish state of Israel, and take a leaf out of Buji Herzog’s book: Herzog immediately did the honourable – and graceful and civilised and polite – thing and called Netanyahu to concede defeat and congratulate the winner.

No such phone call from Obama.

Who has been upstaged by India’s PM Modi, who immediately congratulated Netanyahu on his electoral win – in Hebrew!

Barack Obama has SUCH a lot to learn, and there’s nobody in his administration willing or brave enough to teach him. Everyone in his administration is too busy frantically ignoring an increasingly unpalatable truth:

The emperor is indeed naked and there isn’t a tailor in town courageous enough to offer him a mirror.

Read my blog, Barack Obama, and you might learn something about how the rest of the world sees you. Which is a refreshing departure from how you see yourself.

The problem, you see, with surrounding yourself with yes-men is that you only hear the same voices in your head the whole time.

Take it from me, Barack: there’s a whole lot of voices out there that also need to be listened to.

And most of them are saying it’s high time you stopped throwing your little-girl hissy-fits and started behaving like a statesman.

Such as Buji Herzog or Benjamin Netanyahu. Both of whom could teach you a thing or two about how to behave magnanimously, politely, honestly.

Basically, either of them, from two totally opposing political standpoints within Israeli politics, could still work together to hold up a mirror to you.

Believe me, you need to take a good, long, hard look in that mirror.
