Obama's Middle East Policy Falls Apart

A great piece by Sammy Benoit (Yid with Lid) in American Thinker. Here's some excerpts:

President Obama's Middle East policy is in ruins. While the U.S. continues to press Israel for a settlement freeze (and a freeze on Jerusalem), Obama's strategy is falling apart piece by piece. He has turned the Israeli populace against him and strengthened the hand of Prime Minister Netanyahu. At the same time, he has eroded his own support among American Jews and other U.S. friends of Israel.During the first ten months of his term, Mr. Obama has shown sympathy for the people who would destroy Israel while snubbing the Israelis. Even worse is Obama's desire to cast Israel as the hold-up to peace at every opportunity, whether through his statements, the statements of his subordinates, or his anti-Israel appointments:
  • During his first week in office, Obama sat down with Al-Arabiya Arab TV, ignored the issue of terrorism in Palestinie, and indicated that the Israeli government had no desire for peace.
  • He named Samantha Power to a key NSA position. Ms. Power has suggested that America invade Israel to enforce a peace plan.
  • Obama conferred large sums of money to Gaza, allegedly for reconstruction, that will undoubtedly fall into the hands of Hamas.
  • Ignoring previous agreements with Israel, the Obama administration called for the end of the natural growth of settlements.
  • And of course, there is the continuing appeasement of Iran.
....I hate admit it, but that prediction was very wrong. Barack Obama has turned out to be much worse than I could have imagined....
Obviously, the JIDF agrees.  Great job, Sammy! Everyone needs to read the full piece, here.
