Embracing the Viper

| March 22, 2013

President Obama is on his Middle East tour and has thus far offered an arm of support to Israel that those who are ultimately responsible for the very survival of that nation and their people must surely be examining at arm’s length. In spite of Obama’s declaration that Israel’s future is “bound to ours,” he notably did not say that Israel’s survival is bound to ours. That’s a significant distinction if you happen to be a home-based Israeli living under perpetual threat of annihilation.

Of further significant concern was Obama’s apparent willingness to appear on a speaking platform in the Ramallah with a huge depiction of that despicable terrorist, Yasser Arafat, hovering overhead. Good grief! Is Obama’s advance team so inept as to allow the President of the United States of America to stand and expound under the image of one of the founding fathers of Islamic terrorism with its bombings, shootings and multitudinous other forms of assassination and death? Arafat was a sleazy embezzler and a sexual deviate who raped not only little Arab boys but the very cause he professed to represent. Yet there stood our entirely clueless president under Arafat’s blown-up photo lending immeasurable American presidential support to the memory of this despicable man and the fools who still worship and follow this false idol.

One can only wonder as to whether this was a colossal screw-up by Obama’s advance team or a calculated move to show the solidarity of America’s suspected Muslim-sympathizing president with the militant, anti-Jewish factions all over the Middle East. Either way, Barack has alienated a huge segment of society, either West or Middle East.

Perhaps Obama ultimately hopes to emulate the widow of Arafat who lives ever so comfortably in France, her comfort insured by the hundreds of millions she and her corrupt husband looted. Our affirmative action president does so much appear to enjoy the trappings of wealth, and who could possibly know if he will not be comfortably retired in similar manner by those who hold immense wealth in the Middle East?

    “Either way, Barack has alienated a huge segment of society…” Well, it seems to me he is being consistent. He’s just doing internationally what he has done nationally–making a mess of everything.

    One would hope the president was smarter than hipster doofuses in the East Village wearing che shirts….and apparently one would be disappointed to discover that was not the case.

    To the ignorant masses, symbolism holds meaning. Lending legitimacy to arafat by appearing before his image does little to project the image of the United States as a beacon of hope for the downtrodden of the world.

    Sadly, under this photo op we just appear to be another full of sh1t group of rich turds.

    I’m sorry, on most things concerning the President, I would agree, but with Israeli relatives and our own skin in the game with the Jewish state, I think you’re parsing words a little too much to draw a distinction between “future” and “survival.” There are certain realities that most Israelis even agree that they have to face, and the President touched on them this go ’round. In the end, though, we all know that he’ll go back to the same routine as all of his predecessors, which is, have the press secretary express this or that sentiment when something happens. I don’t care, as long as Iron Dome technology from the U.S. is keeping friends in Sderot safe.

    A friend of mine works at one of the tech companies Mr. Obama visited over there. The President went over his time and kept asking questions – there was a sense on the part of many Israelis that this guy gave more than a photo-op’s crap than previous visitors. Perhaps that’s only because turmoil in Israel threatens to disrupt the flow of smartphones to the U.S., who’s to say? As critical as I am of the guy, this trip didn’t really give me, a large contributor to both AIPAC and ZOA, much to complain about, without similarly parsing a phrase here and there. And believe me, we’ve constantly been asking the question, “does he or doesn’t he” care about Israel for 4-5 years now.

    As for him appearing under the visage of Arafat, I wholly agree. At a time when the Palestinians want to dig the guy up and play make-believe with polonium assassination, the last thing we need is the Leader of the Free World lending any more credibility to Arafat than we have already.

    Obama is fine with appearing under a banner of Arafat at a press conference, but he wasn’t so open with another venue last year:

    Um, nope! Not a bit of difference between now and back in 2009 when he stood on the border between El Paso & Mexihole. Overshadowed by the flag of Mexico….

    At least his helicopters were cool to watch.
