Israel Smacks Back At Biden and Obama

Obama’s nice guy persona has created all-time amazing results, to be sure.

It has cause Israeli-American relations to hit an all-time low.

Vice President Jospeh Biden became the most senior official to travel to Israel since Barack Obama took office last year.  He proclaimed that the U.S.-Israeli relationship was closer than ever.  He promised to protect Israel at all costs.

And the Israelis shoved it right back in his face.  Israel on Tuesday revealed plans to build a further 1,600 housing units in a Jewish settlement in East Jerusalem, a move Washington was quick to condemn for its impact on US-backed peace talks.

Surprised?

“The substance and timing of the announcement … is precisely the kind of step that undermines the trust we need right now,” Mr Biden said in condemning Israel’s move. “We must build an atmosphere to support negotiations, not complicate them.”

Actually, the substance and timing is simply retribution.  Last year, Obama refused to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayahu at the White House, and avoided him at the United Nations.  At the same time Obama was happily meeting other world dictators, what did you think the Israeli’s would do?

The Israeli public now has a 4% approval rating of Obama. Obama, time and again, has either insulted or ignored Israel, one of America’s staunches allies.  What did they expect?

Israel’s Interior Minister on Wednesday apologized for the timing of the announcement; but not the announcement itself.

This does not mean that the Administration cannot support Palestinian nationalism.   Bush supported it, as did Clinton.  But Obama has fallen into the liberal trap.  Making friends with your enemies, without maintain your current friendships, gains you nothing.  Yes, America needs to be a fair arbiter in the Middle East.  But right now, neither the Israelis nor Palestinians trust Obama.  And with the failing progress on Iranian sanctions, Israel has little hope that anyone will come to their aid in defending the Jewish state.  Ultimately, at this point in time, they are on their own.

Hope and Change, baby.

    I don’t think it is appropriate to refer to ‘occupied’ Jerusalem. It is simply Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.

    What, in the name of decency, is a “Jewish settlement in East Jerusalem”? Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Israelis build in their capital city as Americans build in DC or anywhere else in America. Are Americans building “American settlements” anywhere in America?
