Whose Side Is Obama On?

Once again the Obama administration has slapped Israel in the face. In the last few days the Obama administration has announced its intention to establish ties with the newly sworn-in Fatah-Hamas unity government. Basically the U.S. is giving its approval to terrorism. Israel, the United States, Canada, the European Union, Jordan, Egypt and Japan classify Hamas as a terrorist organization yet the Obama administration wants to recognize them as a legitimate government and work with them. Remember - this is an administration who does not negotiate with terrorists... unless they're holding a U.S.military deserter and we can release five of the world's top terrorist leaders to get him back.

Frankly I'm surprised that Benjamin Netanyahu still communicates with Obama since it seems Obama sells Israel down the river at every opportunity. Despite Israel being our closest ally, Obama has been doing everything he can to support the Palestinians and to get Israel to give up part of their own country to Islam.

Israel is now saying that the U.S. is sanctioning terrorism.

“If the US administration wants to advance peace, it should be calling on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to end his pact with Hamas and return to peace talks with Israel. Instead it is enabling Abbas to believe that it is acceptable to form a government with a terrorist organization,” Israeli officials said recently to the media.

Since he was elected in 2008, President Obama has been working to appease Islam even while we were fighting two wars against radical Muslim terrorists. For whatever reason, many Americans still want to believe that Islam, a combination of religion and politics, is a "religion of peace." It is far from that. And while not all Muslims are terrorists, the radical faction is growing stronger and more violent. The recent assault on Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), about which we are doing nothing, demonstrates that very well. Iraq will soon be a caliphate in which they can train new terrorists and launch attacks worldwide. And we're not only allowing them to attain it - we're helping them Many of their weapons are U.S. made.

I can't figure out whether the administration's (and many liberals in general) attitude toward Islam is naivete or deliberate ignorance. Islam is not our friend just as it is not a religion of peace. Muslims all over the Middle East are killing Christians simply because they are Christian and not Muslim. Christians worldwide are appalled and outraged by these barbaric acts. Yet President Obama, who professes to be a Christian himself, has very little to say about it. 

President Obama does seem intent on helping Islam in any way he can. His release of the five Taliban commanders, comparable to five Generals in the US, for one suspected deserter did nothing more than aid the enemy. And even though John Kerry assures us that these guys won't return to the battlefield - my money is on the one of them who already said that's what he's going to do. I guess we should believe Kerry over the lying terrorist but hey - call me stubborn.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said recently that the White House is in panic mode because of the backlash they received over the trade for Bowe Bergdahl.

"I think they are in a state of utter panic," Giuliani said. "They are saying all these men (Bergdahl's fellow platoon members) are liars. These are men who did serve honorably. Who did put their lives at risk. Some of them are decorated. And, there's a lot of them who are saying the same thing."

He said Bergdahl should have been recovered but "at what price?"

"The price that we paid for Bergdahl might have been too high a price to pay, even if you were trying to save a Medal of Honor winner. We gave up five of the worst people in Guantanamo," he said.

"To take a guy who left under questionable circumstances, where there are allegations of desertion, and to put his family in the White House, and to make it look like this great hero is coming back, it made it much more difficult. They're the ones who made the situation for Bergdahl much worse," he said.

I must agree. The trade of five murderous terrorists for one questionable soldier, who quite possibly was in the hands of the terrorists of his own volition, will most likely go down in history as Obama's greatest screw-up. If and when America is facing even one of those five on the battlefield (or suffers an attack orchestrated by one or more of them) then their release will become a complete failure for the Obama administration.

Obama better hope Kerry is right. But with his track record - Kerry isn't the most reliable person to bet on...
