Obama's big mistake is not seeing that the Jews, an ancient and experienced people, know how to draw on great strength when necessary and stand up to anyone who threatens their freedom and independence.
U.S. President Barack Obama is furious at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and some say that his anger stems from hatred. William Shakespeare wrote that "two stars keep not their motion in one sphere." Especially not when we are talking about two leaders, one of whom is unwilling to budge an inch from his responsibility to his people, and the other of whom is a lame duck, trying to shore up his damaged legacy.
You don't need to be Sigmund Freud to understand Obama's motives and gambits, especially after the results of the Israeli election were announced. The prime minister of Israel, a little country somewhere in the Middle East, with fewer residents than New York City, is facing the president of the biggest and strongest superpower in history and not letting him lead the West into a dangerous deal with Iran, the tycoon of global terrorism. A deal that any honest person knows Iran won't honor and will just laugh at as it continues to develop nuclear weapons with the aid of other global powers. To build their new caliphate, the Iranians will like [lie?], deceive, distract, and spread falsehoods. They will exploit to the end the naiveté of the West, as the West sinks into itself from weariness and neglects any stable, respectable ideology in the name of multiculturalism and post-modernism.
In 2009, shortly after the U.S. presidential election, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The prize was given to him for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." This was the first time in the history of the prize that it was given out based on expectations, rather than for acts that contributed to world peace. Anyone who reads the reason for awarding the prize to Obama smiles sadly. U.S. weakness has led to bloodshed and anarchy in many places. Obama hasn't strengthened diplomacy and cooperation -- violence has only increased on his watch.
Obama is under heavy pressure and some believe that he should return the prize in defeat. To justify keeping it, he is prepared to cut a deal with the ayatollahs in Iran, abandoning America's friends in the Middle East.
Obama erroneously believes that Israel is a weak, submissive link. He thinks that hurting Israel won't make any waves in a cynical, alienated world. Not many righteous Gentiles are left. Obama's big mistake is not seeing that the Jews, an ancient and experienced people, know how to draw on great strength when necessary and stand up to anyone who threatens their freedom and independence.
Obama should really ask his Jewish advisors, all of whom are left-wing liberals, to explain the meaning of the Passover holiday, the Jewish holiday of freedom. In one night, after 400 years of slavery, the Jews were free. Since that night, every generation -- in the dark days of the Diaspora and in the light of the homeland -- recall the Exodus. The feeling of freedom is in our souls, and neither Obama nor any other leader can snuff out our people's spirit of freedom and liberty.
