Prime Minister Netanyah Confronts Obama's Hostility Towards Israel

"Why has US President Barak Obama decided to foment a crisis in US relations with Israel?"

For everyone including Jews who voted for Obama this article by Caroline Glick should convince you that Mr. Obama is anti-freedom and for everything that smells of statism. Obama's staged rage against Israel is nothing short of astonishing. Every president and the American People have been pro-Israel - In comes Obama and he now shows all the faces of a man bent on destroying this tiny prosperous country. Why? Because he wants to cow-tow to the likes of Ahmadinejad of Iran and Syria and Turkey and....all the bad guys. It's a sad day for freedom ever since we elected this man out of left field. Read the following article by Caroline Glick who analyzes the Middle East.

Why has US President Barak Obama decided to foment a crisis in US relations with Israel?

Some commentators have claimed that it is Israel's fault. As they tell it, the news that Israel has not banned Jewish construction in Jerusalem — after repeatedly refusing to ban such construction — drove Obama into a fit of uncontrolled rage from which he has yet to recover.

While popular, this claim makes no sense. Obama didn't come to be called "No drama Obama" for nothing. It is not credible to argue that Jerusalem's local planning board's decision to approve the construction of 1,600 housing units in Ramat Shlomo drove cool Obama into a fit of wild rage at Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Obama himself claims that he has launched a political war against Israel in the interest of promoting peace. But this claim too, does not stand up to scrutiny.
On Friday Obama ordered Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to present Netanyahu with a four-part ultimatum.

First, Israel must cancel the approval of the housing units in Ramat Shlomo.
Second, Israel must prohibit all construction for Jews in Jerusalem neighborhoods built since 1967.

Third, Israel must make a gesture to the Palestinians to show them we want peace. The US suggests releasing hundreds of Palestinian terrorists from Israeli prisons.

Fourth, Israel must agree to negotiate all substantive issues, including the partition of Jerusalem, (including the Jewish neighborhoods constructed since 1967 that are now home to more than a half million Israelis), and the immigration of millions of hostile foreign Arabs to Israel under the rubric of the so-called "right of return," in the course of indirect, Obama administration-mediated negotiations with the Palestinians. To date, Israel has maintained that substantive discussions can only be conducted in direct negotiations between Israeli and Palestinian officials...
