Obama’s [“unwavering”] flawed Mideast policy!

5 Nov

Barak Hussein Obama, the failing President of the United States, is indeed unwavering in his policies and actions. In many ways being unwavering, and loyal, are positive traits, in many other ways they may be serious flaws.
It is known that trying and failing to perform a given task is not a positive in one’s life, trying the same failing-action a second time, and failing again, suggests that the one who does so is not very smart, perhaps even foolish. Coming back a third time, is a demonstration of total ineptness. In the case of President Obama, he offered to try diplomacy with Iran, on more than three times, and he did so after Iran’s President, Ahmadinejad, rejected any negotiation with the United States, as long as the US continue to befriend Israel. These returns to trying diplomacy with Iran, clearly demonstrates that Barak Obama is totally incompetent in the art of diplomacy.
In the Israeli/Palestinian situation, President Obama demonstrated on several occasions that neither he, nor his Secretary of State, Clinton, have any understanding of the “situation on the ground.”
There is little, or no doubt, that President Obama, a practicing Christian, has Islamic traits, instincts, and sensitivities, and that they show through in his dealing in the Middle East.
Obama’s unwavering desire to make the peace process in Israel become a positive part of his legacy, is commendable. The desire for Middle East peace is a very positive part of the President’s agenda, but it is not realistic unless he the President willing to realize that nothing in human relations remain in a steady-state, it is dynamic, ever evolving, and require adaptability.
For Obama and his Administration to cause an effective Israeli/Palestinian peace effort, the United States President must be willing to acquire a better understanding of the principles, their cultures, and the boundaries in which they can maneuver. Some of the items that must be clarified up-front, must be dealt with early in the discussions and not expect them to go away by putting them on the back burner.
Obama will have to start adjusting his approach to the Middle East, show less reverence to Muslim leader with their oil riches, sacrifice some his those Islamic instincts that he acquired during his formative years, and become less afraid of Islamic rejection.
This is not to suggest that Obama becomes more pro-Israel, but it does suggest that he must treat the Jewish-state in a fair manner, regardless of how much damage it may create for him with the Islamic world. At minimum, before moving forward, the Palestinians must accept Israel’s right to exist in the geographic area it now occupies, and be so as a Jewish-state. Israel on its end must agree that it is willing to accept a Palestinian state as its neighbor.
