Was today's speech by Obama at the UN General Assembly his most naive ever?
It’s always a bad sign when a US president gets several rounds of heavy applause at the UN General Assembly, as Barack Obama did this morning in New York. Needless to say, the loudest cheers from the gathering of world leaders came when he condemned the actions of a close US ally, Israel, in continuing to build settlements in the West Bank. You can always rely on attacks on the Israelis to generate the biggest roars of approval at any meeting of the United Nations, and Obama dutifully obliged.http://tinyurl.com/ne24d7
The Assembly also mightily cheered Obama’s boast that the United States no longer condones “torture” (as if it ever did), a blatantly political swipe at the interrogation techniques of the previous government, which most Americans happen to back. The president’s decision to rejoin the UN Human Rights Council, a basket case of an organization that includes some of the world’s worst tyrannies, was also greeted warmly.
We all know that Obama is an Islamic sympathizer dating back to when he attended an Islamic school in Indonesia. He continued in that vein at the UN today by calling for an end to the Israeli "occupation" of the West Bank.
Here is a notice to Obama. Israel is not "occupying" the West Bank. The West Bank is an integral part of greater Israel which was given to the Jewish people by God Himself. Neither Obama nor anyone else has a moral right to call upon Israel to leave the West Bank. Israel won that land fair and square during the Six Day War in 1967 and asking Israel to give that land back would be tantamount to the United States giving back the American Southwest that it won in the Mexican War in 1846 to Mexico.
Obama's bias against Israel is palpable. Of course he always spouts the obligatory "the USA is a strong supporter of Israel" line, but then he turns right around and betrays that sentiment with anti Israeli rhetoric such as that given at the UN today. It's no wonder that he had tin pot dictators from around the Third World applauding him. Obama is betraying almost everything that the United States has stood for over the past sixty years when there was strong bipartisan support for Israel.
It is becoming increasingly obvious that Obama has an anti American agenda which will surrender America's best interests to dictators and tyrants such as Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He caved in the Russians with his plans to withdraw defensive missiles from Europe. He comes down on the side of leftist Latin American dictators with his support for overturning the democracy in Honduras. And he stabs Israel in the back.
This is a man who never should have been elected President of the United States. He is a disaster for this country. The damage that he is doing now will take years to undo once we get a legitimate president in office after the 2012 elections.
