The Last, Desperate Defense of Obama on Israel Just Evaporated

Hillary Clinton criticizes Obama’s foreign policy ‘failure’; strongly defends Israel
 

By Natan Nestel

Israel left Gaza in 2005 and now finds itself under relentless attack by the terrorists who took over. It deserves international support; instead, it’s being abandoned

Obama nixed resupplying Israel with arms during Israel’s war withHamas in Gaza.

US-Israeli tensions are at a record high, with US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said to hold a “particularly combative phone call on Wednesday.”

US administration

? pressured Israel to accept Turkey and Qatar,Hamas terrorists’ biggest supporters, as mediators with Hamas.

UK takes the ques from Obama and promise to limit arms sales to Israel if Hamas restarts its attacks on Israel’s civilians (see here).

    Marcha a deguello”. While I am not Mexican, or fought in El Alamo,

    One of TX’s Great-great-grandfather was a professional Calvary Officer in Santana’s Army at the Alamo. He was from a ” noble family” in Germany. He late joined the USA army and fought the Mexicans in1845 with R.E. Lee. He received a large land grant that is now SW San Antonio, TX.. The family lost the land after the” War of Northern Aggression”.
    Early Texas had a large German immigration. The communities were bound by language, tradition, religion and liberal politics. They were anti-slavery and faced persecution during and after the Civil War. The members were largely R.C., and Lutheran, but many were Jewish ie Niemen- Marcus Dept. store.

  2. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:

    And no, revolution is not about to happen.

    Ok I get.
    We’ll keep doing the same thing over and over….
    We’ll spin the EXPECTED SAME results as being something fabulous… and different…..
    everyone is expected to nod in agreement and offer yet another ‘eyin brerah…zeh ma yesh…’
    ETC
    🙁

  3. @ the phoenix:
    Basically, the surrender light agreement is being massaged as we speak. Netanyahu would never do otherwise in any event just as Iran is home free as well.
    Yesterday I believe, the previous Chief of the General Staff or CoS, Ashkenazi and quite a few other unformed subgeneralitos were identified by the police as suspects on high crimes.
    More or less they represent faithfully the real worth and quality of most of the rest of the Staff Officers.
    Another CoS, Halutz was playing the stock market using war preparations inside information before Lebanon II, a war he managed to turn into a debacle.

    Under those conditions the outcome with Hamas could not have been different.

    And no, revolution is not about to happen.

  4. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:

    Only if the internal GALUT is shed and true Jewish national identity comes forth.

    Shmuel, I think we are dancing around the subject now.
    My (genuine) lack of understanding is HOW did it come to be,that many sabras that should not have ANY “internal galut”, are indeed displaying such a great concern for the other side’s narrative….
    I keep asking, what happened to the warriors of the Six Day War? (Shesh’tchick… 🙂 )
    When the late rabbi kahane was alive and speaking to adoring crowds… Even THEN, he did not have a majority of the people behind him. Today, the one that is SAYING all these beautiful things re “Jewish national identity” , well… Is feiglin.
    But for all intents and purposes… It seems that these are ‘beautiful speeches’ and that’s about it!!
    So from a logical pov, there is not going to be any

    “ma’hapecha”

    Israel does not seem to be heading towards building its own arms industry but rather investing in increased productivity to manufacture MORE rubber bullets, paintball etc…
    The restaurants on the tayelet will overflow, and … life would be back to normal…..
    (ehm, gingi! Another cappuccino please…. 🙁 )

  5. @ the phoenix:
    In the old country the process was called revolution. Here phonetically is called “ma’apecha”. But that is usually applied to menial subjects such as sport, insurance changes, shopping, etc, not real dramatic changes. Will real revolution ever happen? Only if the internal GALUT is shed and true Jewish national identity comes forth.

  6. @ SHmuel HaLevi 2:

    The unJews “rubber bullet”, paint ball rifles and “cease fire” doctrine must be utterly taken down and real soldiering re established.

    Lets stop day dreaming

    I have commented many times in the past, that I and many many others share your beliefs. I shall re quote from a comment that hb addressed to yamit:

    I agree, but how will this be accomplished in a democratic Nation. Unless you have a group of like minded co-horts willing to stage a coup.

    I hope you could comment on that.

  7. Lets stop day dreaming.
    Reports now released say that HAMAS and Jihad are fine with the permanent… cease fire agreement about to be signed by the Netanyahu ensemble.
    If the enemy is happy we have every reason to be very concerned.

  8. Israel should nuke both Tehran and Mecca. That should take that shine off the faces of the Israel Killers.
    ….
    If Israel does that – the full game will be forced – America and the West will have no choice but to defend themselves from the Islamofascist response..

    One day Americans will look back from the ashes of their country and realize that their country ended when Obama took office.

    Islam will win a slow war – democracy will win a quick one.

  9. @ yamit82:
    Added to my comment including the MARCHA A DEGUELLO” subject I remembered my college Rugby years.
    My favorite teams are of course the ALL BLACKS, the Argentinian Team and the South African Team. All of which I had the pleasure to see in action.
    THE HAKA performed by the ALL BLACK’S Team at pregame is a MAORI, the legend says, war “dance” ending also with a gesture of slaughter.
    Israel’s military include fine children soldiers and good field commanders, but it lacks total war training.
    Our general staff is more inclined to sabotage each other for promotions than on setting up vicious fighting force that would terrify the enemy.
    Besides a pathetic Staff Command, we allow internal enemies to handcuff the soldiers and even penalize them for fighting as it must be.
    The unJews “rubber bullet”, paint ball rifles and “cease fire” doctrine must be utterly taken down and real soldiering re established.

  10. @ honeybee:
    “Marcha a deguello”. While I am not Mexican, or fought in El Alamo, we did march elsewhere in South America with that March music as background. La Marcha A Deguello is a military march played to both the troops and the enemy indicating that the impending battle’s ultimate objective is the slaughter of all enemy combatants, no prisoners taken or burials of enemies after the battle.
    War is an ultimate action reserved for, usually, men trained to be soldiers.
    They do not go into battle as laflafim seeking a “cease fire” or to “teach lessons” or to “send messages”.
    They march in a rigidly disciplined fashion to slaughter every enemy combatant. Total war that has nothing and everything to do with freedom.
    Only degenerate regimes would send the young to perform self immolation to gain “cease fires”.

  11. @ honeybee:

    Well God bless you hb..
    I’ve been asking the same question since forever…

    I think Israel has to right to act with maximum brutality and total disregard towards her enemies well being,
    at least once in a thousand years.

  14. Now that that problem is settled Israel can get on to rectifying Obama’s biggest international fiasco.
    His love affair with Iran.

  15. Israel to claim independence must finally make independent decisions no matter what or who, or when…
    As a vassal state we have no real reason to exist.
    To be independent in that fashion the people must not just say that we left the Galut behind but we must actually leave it. No need to soap box it, true leadership must raise to guide the people and create all conditions needed to be so.
    Under Peresitic control, that will never happen.
