President Obama and Israel ?

The Obama Administration : anti-Israel

This page and associated pages are undergoing a drastic overhaul.

Wildolive is not qualified to judge the President of the United States, the most powerful man on earth.

Malcolm Hedding explained, in Biblical Christian Zionism, that it is not for us to tell Israel’s leaders what they should be doing; so it is even less our business (those of us who are not Americans) to lecture the president of the USA.

A fellow Christian Zionist who runs a prayer for Israel group was reprimanded by God for praying against President Obama, because God put Barak Obama in power. We should be praying for him; especially in light of our concern about his policies towards Israel.

So we need to put President Obama’s agenda in perspective in order to understand what is happening to Israel, what to expect and what to pray about.

 

Can we understand how President Obama's leadership will frame Foreign Policy, as it applies to Israel?

There is much concern about President Obama's enthusiasm for Islam. Does his background hold any clues? Barak Obama's childhood

 

How justified are the fears that President Obama will throw Israel to the wolves?

President Obama will throw Israel to the wolves?

President Obama has made statements at the UN which place him firmly on side with the Palestinians and their narrative of the situation. President Obama at the United Nations

The president's negotiation of a nuclear deal with Iran appears reckless; to say the least.

President Obama - Iran deal - Iran Deal

Iran - enemy of Israel - Iran going Nuclear

 

Obama has made several serious errors / promises

His overtures to the Muslims has encouraged their leaders to believe they are more important and influential than they really are. His strategy included throwing a carrot to the Palestinians during his Cairo speech by demanding serious concessions from Israel and nothing from the Palestinians. "The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements." This has been accepted as concrete promise number 1 by the Palestinians so that a settlement freeze became a precondition to negotiations.

At Obama's annual UN speech of 2010 he spoke of coming back next year, "with a new member of the United Nations - an independent and sovereign state of Palestine. - Promise number 2.

May 2010 - Obama said Israel must come to the negitiating table with the precondition of a return to the "1967 borders" with some land swaps. - Promise number 3 . This fails to take account of the fact that the "1967 borders" (actually the 1967 armisitice line - see Land) are indefensible and that "defensible borders" were specified in the UN recommendation.

Obama and the leaders of the democratic nations have failed to demand that the Palestinians cease their devastating torrent of hate propaganda against Israel. Promise 1a ? It does not matter if the Palestinians fail to take peace seriously, the creation of their state remains the priority.

 

Muslim Brotherhood operatives

An Egyptian magazine has claimed that six American Islamist activists who work with the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood operatives who enjoy strong influence over U.S. policy. The December 22 2012 story was published in Egypt's Rose El-Youssef magazine and was translated into English for the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT). The story suggests the six turned the White House "from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood." - www.israelnationalnews.com

 

Obama's 'intelligence' agencies urge preparing for a 'post-Israel Middle East'

President Obama's 'intelligence agencies' have prepared a report on a 'post-Israel Middle East' , an 82-page analysis that concludes that the American national interest in fundamentally at odds with that of Zionist Israel. The authors conclude that Israel is currently the greatest threat to US national interests because its nature and actions prevent normal US relations with Arab and Muslim countries and, to a growing degree, the wider international community.

Jerusalem Denial

October 2011 - In a legal brief filed with the US Supreme Court, Hillary Clinton urged the justices not to call Jerusalem part of Israel. At issue is the birthplace designation on passports given to US citizens born in Israel. The Administration’s policy is to require those born in the Jewish capital to have their place of birth listed as Jerusalem rather than Israel. This rule applies to no other capital city on earth; its only purpose is to refuse to acknowledge that Jerusalem is the capital of the Jewish state. (from a report by Mike Evans)

 


Obama and the Settlements

Obama continues to press Netanyahu to move against settlements. It is not clear how Obama defines a settlement; just the illegal outpost or new towns like Har Homa.

Jackson Diehl notes, based on an interview with Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority, that by publicly and repeatedly stressing the need for a without-exception freeze of Israeli building on the West Bank, Obama has revived a long-dormant Palestinian fantasy: that the United States will simply force Israel to make critical concessions, whether or not its democratic government agrees, while Arabs passively watch and applaud.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu flatly refused the American demand that Israel stop building apartments in east Jerusalem or stop Jews from buying apartments there, noting that Arabs are free to buy apartments in west Jerusalem.

US Leaves No Choice But to Okay Palestine

HaAretz - Officials in Jerusalem told Israel Radio that there is no alternative but to ultimately agree to the establishment of a Palestinian state.
Israel will be forced to acknowledge the necessity of a future Palestinian state because there are no signs that the Obama administration will yield on this issue, a diplomatic source told Israel Radio.
Government sources in Jerusalem also told Israel Radio that the quicker Israel adopts the road map for peace as the preferred diplomatic initiative, the more likely it will ward off American pressure to concede to a Palestinian state within the framework of an alternative plan that is less agreeable to Israel.

Concerns are growing in Israel's government over the possibility of a unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence within the 1967 borders with US recognition, after Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad allegedly reached a secret understanding with the Obama administration. The reports were revealed in a scoop by Haaretz.

The move could potentially be recognized by the United Nations Security Council. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently asked the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to veto any such proposal, after reports reached Jerusalem of support for such a declaration from major European Union countries, and apparently also certain U.S. officials.

Such recognition would likely transform any Israeli presence across the Green Line, even in Jerusalem, into an illegal incursion to which the Palestinians would be entitled to engage in measures of self-defense.  

 

 

Why do American Jews support Obama, given his antipathy towards Israel?

See President Obama's friends.
