A VOTE FOR OBAMA, IS NOT A VOTE IN FAVOR OF ISRAEL! A VOTE FOR OBAMA IS NOT A VOTE IN SUPPORT OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE, OR OF JEWISH TRADITIONS!
In spite of betraying Israel, and some of the most important interests of the Jewish people, Barak Obama will be received by Israel’s “powers-to-be” with dignity and respect. Obama will not be welcomed because of who he is, but rather beacause he may become President of the United States, and Israel will continue to need the United States!
A blatent betrayal of Jerusalem’s status, and of the State of Israel, by Barak Hussein Obama, is a dual edge sword: Obama’s reversal of his stance on a united Jerusalem under Israel, to a Jerusalem with a pre1967 borders, is a clear betrayal of Israel, and of the Jewish people!
Obama’s reversal of his position on Jerusalem within days, supports his motto of a change we can belive in; only it should modified to say: A change we can count on!
Jews for some 5000 years stated with their prayers that: Should I Forget You Jerusalm, May My Right [Arm] Be Forgotten! Through the ages Jerusalem has been the HUB of Judaism. In 1948 David Ben-Gurion sacrificed a large and heavily disproportionate part of his military resources to ensure that Jerusalem not be lost to the fledgeling State of Israel.
Obama, either insensitive, or not caring about Jews, Jewish interets, and Israel, in one quick statement on CNN said that were he President he would not support a Jerusalem consistent with the needs and traditions of the Jewish people. Obama’s CNN interview was paramount to those bumper stickers during the first oil embargo which stated: More oil, less Jews!
Barak Obama is not a friend of the Jewish people, but whose friend is he, one may ask? To date, based on his action, Barak Hussein Obama is a friend of those who can get him votes, whoever they may be.
Senator Obama is a change-agent, but not necessarily for a change to the good, but rather for a change to gain a political edge, a change for political expediency!
When Obama spoke and committed to a Jewish group that he supports a united Jerusalem under Israel, Obama was courting the Jewish vote. But, when the dust settled and Obama realized that Jews only constitute about 3% of the United States electorate, he immediately shifted to a more universally accepted position.
Obama’s betrayal of Israel is consistent with his reversing himself on support of other friends and of other commitments. Obama is not a man you can trust unless one is willing to anticipate and deal with betrayal.
