    Obama Inaugural Address: “Peace in our time”

    by Bill Levinson

    (Thanks to Jan Poller for the information)

    The Exalted One said,

      We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice. Not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes.

    10 Comments to Obama Inaugural Address: “Peace in our time”

    1. Dean says:

      Good – now we can hold Obama to his word to condemn Islamists when they introduce hate, prejudice, anti-Semitism, misogyny, de-capitations (, crucifixions, cannibalism as preached in Egyptian schools, war, sharia, jihad, etc. Islamists will definitely get a free pass from Obama. I think that what he has in mind is to stop Jews from building on Jewish land and to allow Islamists their conquest of Israel and the entire world as was preached to him by his friends and at school as they grounded him in the evil of Judaism (as espoused by the Koran and accompanying texts).

    2. Canadian Otter says:


      How has this country (mostly) escaped US GOVT sttempts to do “what’s best” for the Israeli population so far?

      Israel Quietly Lauded as ‘Only Free State’ in Middle East – The State of Israel “remains the region’s only Free country,” according to the latest annual report by Freedom House, a democracy watchdog organization based in the United States.

      The wrecking ball is not done yet. Here come more US-sponsored PARTITION TALKS. And if they fail, there’s always Disengagement.

      Anything that will turn a moderately functioning country into a complete disaster.

    3. Reuben Ingber says:

      Is he so unaware that the person who coined that phrase is one of the most vilified politicians ever. Or maybe he’s considering delivering the present day Czech’s (Israel) to the present day Nazi’ (islam). Bibi take notes.

      @ Dean:
      Obama owes our brethren who put him in the Senate and in the White House. Breaking these bonds will not be easy. Yes, Obama is a liar through and through, but he has taken and now he must give. I do not see him with much flexibility in his obligations. Look not at surface irregularities, look beneath the surface. He has made a deal with us, no, I don’t think he can just unilaterally back out.

    5. For the sake of historical accuracy the correct phrase by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain in his speech concerning the Munich Agreement and the Anglo-German Declaration was “peace for our time” was spoken on September 30, 1938. Such careless errors help perpetuate inaccuracies, he;p turn propaganda lies into “fact” — e.g “militants” instead of terrorists, “the West Bank” instead of Judea and Samaria, thus deceiving the uninformed public.

    6. Max says:

      The American power elite admires the Chicoms control of their people- to the American Power elite Stalinism is Peace – peace is when the people are thoroughly suppressed.

      Remember Obama is a servant and the voice of the American Power Elite – the small group of power players that finance both the Republican and Democratic Parties in America. Having the Republicnas in power would make no difference – the American people would still be under the jackboot of economic fascism and on their way to a complete totalitarian state as they are now.

    7. M A Steiner says:

      Concur with Dr. Carol’s appeal for accuracy in reporting historic facts. Judea and Samaria are part of Israel, period. So is Gaza. American Jews at large need to understand some facts before aligning with a political party led by a man who is anti-Israel. When the Middle Eastern dust settles, Israel will prevail – like it or not.

    8. Michael Devolin says:

      Max, please, move to Cuba and leave us alone. Nobody is reading your fish-head soup.

    9. Honey Bee says:

      @ Michael Devolin:

      I “some what” agree with Max until he starts his “facist ramblings”.

      Will this be the Muslim Brotherhood way, the Islamic way, the Judeo-Christian way or the secular way.
