Let's take a quick look at what President Obama has done since he's been in office.
The promotion of Islam and Muslim nations in the world has been Obama's top priority. Soon after his initial inauguration he went to the Middle East and told them America had been mistreating Muslim nations (and others) for far too long. Here at home he destroyed the space program by shelving future shuttle missions (We now depend on Russia to get us into space) and charged the administrator of the agency with promoting Islam and making Muslims feel better about themselves.
"When I became the NASA administrator -- or before I became the NASA administrator -- he charged me with three things. One was he wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and math, he wanted me to expand our international relationships, and third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering," then administrator Charles Bolden said in the interview.
What kind of U.S. President charges our nation's space agency with making Muslims feel better about themselves - unless he has a specific agenda?
President Obama has alienated many of our best friends in the world and all but destroyed our alliance with our best friend in the Middle East, Israel, all while making nice with some of our enemies. He is currently in talks with Iran, an enemy of the United States for a long time, over their nuclear programs and, according to many sources, is in the process of allowing them to attain a nuclear weapon, even at the peril of our long time ally, Israel.
For years Iran has lived by the mantra "Death to Israel. Death to America," yet Obama is attempting to negotiate with them in a completely misguided (or subversive) mission to make peace and basically allow them to do what they want regardless of world opinion. What part of "Death to America" does he not understand? Does he truly believe that Iran will live up to any agreement they sign with us? Or is he quietly and deliberately helping Iran for the cause of Islam?
Obama hates Bibi Netanyahu and Israel. It's obvious in the way Obama treats Israel, in the way he attempted to overthrow Netanyahu in the recent election, and in his recent statement that the US will have to "reassess our relationship with Israel" after Netanyahu said that there can be no two-state solution with the Palestinians at this time. Radio talk show host Mark Levin has been so bold as to call Obama an anti-Semite. Is he wrong? I don't think so.
For whatever reason, Obama believes he has the authority to tell Israel what to do. He has demanded that Israel change its borders and give territory back to the Palestinians to the pre-1967 borders, completely disregarding the territory Israel justifiably conquered in the six-day war when they defeated Palestinian groups based in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan following repeated attacks on Israel. He now has threatened to end our big brother relationship with Israel if Bibi doesn't do what Obama wants with the two state solution.
President Obama also demands that Israel not defend itself against attacks today that come from Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Southern Lebanon. He criticizes Israel for launching offensive strikes even as they are under rocket attack from those groups.
The Palestinian government in Gaza has affiliated itself with Hamas. Hamas attacks Israel on a regular basis. Yet President Obama wants Bibi to make nice with the Palestinians and give them back the territory they lost in the 1967 conflict. Bibi says no. Go figure.
No one in their right mind, or at least no one without sinister intent, would expect Israel to give up land to a government that refuses to even acknowledge their existence. The Palestinian Authority, in partnership with Hamas, and many other Islamic nations and terrorist organizations, refuses to acknowledge the right of Israel to exist. Iran wants to "remove Israel from the face of the Earth." And who does our President support? Islam and the Palestinians.
If President Obama ends a friendship/alliance of nearly 60 years because Israel refuses to yield to his (in my opinion) unreasonable demands he will be going against the will of the majority of Americans. But hey - that's nothing new for Obama. Can you say Obamacare?
Personally, I think Prime Minister Netanyahu should tell Obama to take a hike, whether or not Obama severs the relationship. A conservative President in 2017 would immediately restore the friendship and if Obama continues to give Iran the freedom to attain a nuclear weapon, Netanyahu is going to have to act unilaterally to eliminate the threat anyway.
It has been rumored (and denied by the White House) that Obama threatened to shoot down any Israeli planes that might attack Iran's nuclear facilities. Such a threat wouldn't surprise me given the fact that Obama has instructed our own Congress not to attempt to levy sanctions against Iran while he (Obama) is negotiating with the enemy. For all intents and purposes Obama believes he is the only authority in the U.S. government.
One of the definitions of tyranny is "the arbitrary use of power or control." President Obama's actions since his re-election border on tyrannical. Executive amnesty is a perfect example. His repeated statements that he will act unilaterally if Congress fails to do his bidding can only lead to one conclusion - Obama would be king if he could get away with it. And so far, with a gutless Republican Congress, he seems to be doing just that.
Benjamin Netanyahu and both houses of the U.S. Congress should form a partnership that excludes Obama. The House and Senate need to pass legislation that supports Netanyahu's right to defend Israel against Iran and any Islamic extremism at all costs. They should also assert sanctions against Iran that severely cripple their economy until they stop processing uranium and dismantle their centrifuges. And if Obama refuses to sign the bills it will finally be obvious to all that he favors Islam over the United States and Israel. Let's force him to show his true allegiance. Let every American see first hand that Obama does not have the best interest of the United States at heart.
But what am I saying? Today's Congress won't even prevent executive amnesty.
