“The Obama Administration reaches out to some of the world’s worst regimes in the name of their engagement policy. America and our allies watch as sanctions are eased on Cuba. Letters are written to Iran’s mullahs only to see that regime start killing protestors in the streets of Tehran. Envoys are sent to North Korea as they continue to defy the world’s demand to give up their nuclear weapons. The Burmese military junta’s representative is allowed to travel to our nation’s capital. The President’s envoy for Sudan talks about giving that genocidal regime “gold stars,” while the President shakes hands with Venezuela’s tyrannical leader. In the midst of all this embracing of enemies, where does the Obama Administration choose to escalate a minor incident into a major diplomatic confrontation? With Iran, Cuba, Sudan, North Korea or Burma? No. With our treasured ally, Israel.

“Last October, Secretary of State Clinton recognized Israel’s desire for peace in the Middle East and praised Israel’s “unprecedented” concessions for agreeing to halt settlement construction in the West Bank, a concession that did NOT include halting construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem. Even last week after planned construction was announced, Vice President Biden still expressed “appreciation” for the “significant” steps taken by the Israeli government to address this minor issue. Now, however, we see the Obama Administration has decided to escalate, make unilateral demands of Israel, and threaten the very foundation of the US-Israel relationship. This is quickly leading to the worst crisis in US-Israel relations in decades, and yet this did not have to happen. More importantly, it needs to stop before it spirals out of control. Vice President Biden should rein in the overheated Obama Administration rhetoric and chill the political spin masters’ fire as they visit the Sunday media shows to criticize Israel.

“Once again, the Obama Administration is missing the boat on a very, very important issue. They need to go back to the basics and acknowledge Palestinian leaders have not progressed any peace process since President Obama was elected. As Israel makes concessions (and is still criticized by the Obama Administration), Arab leaders are just sitting back waiting for the White House to further pressure Israel. The Obama Administration needs to open its eyes and recognize that it is only Iran and her terrorist allies that benefit from this manufactured Israeli controversy. Vice President Biden was actually right when he said last week, before the construction announcement, that “one necessary precondition for progress is that the rest of the world knows…there is absolutely no space between the United States and Israel when it comes to security.” Right now, thanks to the Obama Administration, there is a chasm. It’s time for President Obama to push the reset button on our relations with our ally Israel.”

    obama has a muslim name, that alone does not make him a muslim. Obama`s father was a muslim, that does not make Obama a muslim. Obama attended a muslim school, that does not make Obama a muslim. Obama reachs out to muslim countries and gives the shaft to Israel, that does not make Obama a muslim. So Sarah Palin speaks out for Israel and condems Obama for his stand against Israel and she is attacked in the american press. so can anyone tell me how did everything get so twisted around in this country?

    Israel is the biggest benefit the USA has in the world.
    She is the point in world Islamic Terrorism.
    She is the point to humint intel for the USA in the Arabic world.
    She is the point in technological breakthrough for IT and associated technologies.
    She is the pivotal tester of most US high tech weaponary.
    She upgrades that waeponary a given and makes it better.
    She saves the US more than it costs her to supply the weaponary.
    She leads the Middle East in peace making.

    What does America do?
    She elects a party and a president who dislikes, even hates Israel and her rationale for being.
    Go Figure!

    I am a 60 year old conservative Jew, a vietnam vet and retired civil eng. my children are grown and very liberal. I had warned them about Obama but youth knows better. my daughter and her husband have just returned from Israel and she informed me how upset the people of Israel are with Obama. I have been around to long not to be able to spot a phony, and I realized early on that Obama was going to be trouble. I admit that at first I did not think much of Palin, but she seems to have really matured as a leader and has a great inner sense into the hearts of people and this nation. Thank you for this site, Jews must speak out, because war is coming, Obama in his weakness is going to cause much blood to flow. Israel will live on but it is going to pay a heavy price. Obama will go down in history as one of the most dispised american presidents. Jews will rule the day they helped to elect this man. I have always believed that one of the great dangers to Israel has always been liberal American Jews.
