Obama in Favor of Further Palestinian Negotiations with Israel
President Barack Obama will be meeting with the United Nations Security Council shortly, and reports indicates that he is poised to abandon Israel.
Israel is America’s greatest ally in the Middle East, and it has been argued that Obama’s scheme would make Israel vulnerable to enemy attacks.
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) feels the president’s thoughts of abadoning Israel as an “unthinkable” act of betrayal, and would appreciate him changing course and behaving like a true leader.
ACLJ’s Skip Ash commented, “In times of crisis, real leaders lead — they can read the mood of the people and the needs of the time, and they rise to the occasion. Winston Churchill was just such a leader. He rallied the British people in the darkest days of WWII with his ‘We shall fight on the beaches … We shall never surrender’ speech. President George W. Bush did the same for the American people in the dark days following 9/11. The Nation needed rallying, and W rallied us all as he stood with first responders at Ground Zero and announced that an aroused Nation was coming after those who had attacked U.S. soil!”
Ash feels that Obama’s track record reflects a type of “shirking his duty” and avoiding the issue when determining foreign policy matters. He feels it is unacceptable behavior for a commander-in-chief.
“President Obama seems utterly incapable of discerning what’s really important and how his actions come across to others,” the legal expert expressed. “Remember how he hurried off to play golf right after announcing that an American citizen had been beheaded? And, as ISIS is decimating parts of the Middle East and extending its tentacles to Europe and beyond, remember how the President lectured us about climate change?”
Also noted was Obama’s handling of the Belgium terrorist attack, stressing his avoidance of hitting the issue of jihad while focusing on relations with Latin America. His behavior was seen as unconcerned and disconnected.
“Just the other day, as Brussels was reeling from multiple bomb blasts committed by persons whose religious persuasion could not be uttered for fear of offending all others of that particular persuasion, our President was seen smiling broadly and doing the wave with that lovable old communist Raoul Castro at a baseball game in Cuba. Even as the toll of the dead and injured mounted in Brussels, our smiling President headed to Buenos Aires to dance the tango as Belgian authorities feverishly searched for additional jihadists and victims’ families buried their dead. One wonders if our President is even capable of understanding what his actions look like to normal people. Is he really that out of touch?”
Obama is expected to continue his anti-Israel foreign polic by attempting to force an outcome that will work to Palestine’s advantage in its conflict with Israel.
“Now, we may see how out of touch he really is,” Ash continued. “It’s being reported that our own government may propose that the U.N. Security Council adopt a resolution to force Israelis and Palestinians back to the table to resolve their differences. This resolution has been reported to include a hammer to impose a result if the negotiations don’t succeed after a set period of time. How misguided can our Government be?”
ACLJ views Obama’s anticipated decision as feeding into another pro-Palestinian poistion that is in alignment with anti-Semitic policies enforced against Israel globally.
The ACLJ sees this anticipated move by the Obama administration as feeding into another one of its pro-Palestinian positions that is in alignment with much of the anti-Semitic policies enforced against Israel around the globe.
“Who would be helped by such a resolution? Only the Palestinians,” the Christian legal group insists. “In the interim, try as they might, the Israelis cannot get the Palestinians to negotiate in good faith. They still demand the entire loaf or nothing. They keep opting for nothing and then blame the Israelis for their own poor choices. Imagine the dilemma for the Israelis. It’s hard to resolve problems via negotiations when one’s negotiation partner simply won’t negotiate.”
Ash also mentions that by the U.S. withdrawing support of Israel, it is positioning the only democracy in the Middle East in a volitile situation.
“In a world with lots of Islamic countries (many of which are rich in oil) and with many poor countries which cannot afford to offend Muslim-majority oil producing countries, the world’s sole Jewish state is at a marked disadvantage,” Ash explains. “But for the principled defense of Israel exercised by the United States in the past, Israel would be totally isolated in the world.”
Former presidents have always supported Israel in their fight. However, Obama is seeking to join other anti-Semitic nations in their interpretations of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict by coercing Israel to make unconscionable concessions.
Experts fear that Israel can no longer count on U.S. support to protect its statehood in one of the most globally hostile regions.
Ash noted that when Obama intervenes on the U.S.’s behalf in the Middle East, historically disaster has occured.
“This would be another example of misguided foreign policy from the Obama Administration.” he added. “Just as President Obama backed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (a mistake of epic proportions that destabilized Egypt and split us from our traditional Arab allies in the region), made a deal with the Iranian ayatollahs which even they refused to sign (ditto on epic mistake that encouraged our enemies and shocked our friends in the region), and failed to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement (SOFA) in Iraq that would have left sufficient U.S. forces in Iraq to stop the rise of ISIS, the most dangerous jihadist movement existing today (ditto again on epic mistake for which the region and other areas of the world are paying a heavy price), proposing a resolution to compel negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians will achieve nothing and destabilize the region still further.”
Currently, the ACLJ is taking action by sending letters and legal memoranda to U.N. officials, Permanent Representatives of the U.N. member states who serve on the Security Council, and to U.S. government officials in the Executive and Legislative brances calling them to halt any proposals made to coerse Israel into further negotiations with Palestinian officials.
Ash feels further negotiations with Palestine are futile until they desire to negotiate in good faith.
Americans are encouraged to stand with Israel by signing the ACLJ’s “Defend Israel: No Talks with Terrorists” petition.
