How close is the Obama Administration to Hamas? If the administration’s hostile and vicious rhetoric toward Israel is any indication, they’re one and the same. Obama has never hid his personal disgust for Israel, or his active promotion of all things and interests that would directly harm Israel.
But on Tuesday, the administration’s rhetoric went beyond its normal disdain threshold, and into full unadulterated hatred. The Obama Administration went nuclear on Israel. The proof is in the words of Obama’s Middle East coordinator Philip Gordon, as reported by The Times of Israel.
In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement. Jerusalem “should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate” such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said.
Delivering the keynote address at the Haaretz newspaper’s Israel Conference on Peace, Gordon reiterated Obama’s position that a final-status agreement should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps.
Gordon’s statements take outrage to new levels. The mere suggestion that it is Israel’s responsibility and place to “negotiate” with Hamas, whose sole purpose is to wipe Israel off the map, is egregious. Worse, this comes after a barrage of rockets, aimed at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, have continued to bombard Israel, with no end in sight. As of Monday, some 200 such rockets have landed in Israel. But who does the world blame for the aggression? Israel alone.
“The United States will always have Israel’s back. That’s why we fight for it every day at the United Nations,” Gordon said. But as Israel’s greatest friend and strongest defender, Washington should be allowed to ask some fundamental questions, he added.
Specifically, Gordon went on: “How will Israel remain democratic and Jewish if it attempts to govern the millions of Palestinian Arabs who live in the West Bank? How will it have peace if it’s unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation and allow for Palestinian sovereignty, security and dignity? How will we prevent other states from supporting Palestinian efforts in international bodies, if Israel is not seen as committed to peace?”
What liars and traitors. Israel should run from Obama, as he and his minions from Hell intend to destroy the Jewish state. Openly working to destroy the only bastion of hope in the Middle East, and America’s strongest ally in the region, they show their jihadist colors. The mere mention of Israel’s responsibility for the ruthless and reckless pawn of anti-Semites worldwide, the “Palestinians,” is disgusting and preposterous. To insinuate that Israel must ensure their “sovereignty and security” is a butcher knife in the back. Is this Iran speaking to Israel? ISIL? Yes it is. There is little difference in the rhetoric.
In his speech at the David Intercontinental Hotel in Tel Aviv, Gordon also referred to the hail of rockets that rained down on Israel throughout the day from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip. “The US strongly condemns these attacks. No country should have to live under the constant threat of indiscriminate violence against innocent civilians,” said Gordon, whose administration was heavily criticized by the Israeli government for quickly agreeing to work with the new Hamas-backed Palestinian unity government when it was established last month.
The administration supported Israel’s right to defend itself against these attacks, he added. “At the same time, we appreciate Prime Minister Netanyahu’s calls for acting responsibly and we in turn call on all sides to do all they can to restore calm and to protect civilians.”
The United States has ceased to be Israel’s ally. No country should ever have to surrender to rockets raining down on their people. But in the same breath, Gordon dares to remind Netanyahu to exercise restraint, when he is charged with defending his country, because no one else in the world will help Israel. The only responsibility Israel has is to decimate her enemies. Israel must filet Hamas alone. The United States will not provide aid, but only ammunition to the enemy. For this treachery, America will pay an enormous price.
