WATCH THIS: Barack Obama Bluntly Says “I Don’t Worry About Israel’s Survival” [VIDEO]
August 12, 2014
If there’s one thing Barack Obama has made clear over the last few weeks, it’s that he’s not a big fan of Israel.
The president seemed to go out of his way to oppose Israel’s efforts to shut down Hamas and their relentless rocket attacks against the Jewish nation.
For the first time in history, he turned his back on Israel, supporting the U.N. call for an immediate ceasefire, a move which would’ve given Hamas terrorists all of their demands and left Israel vulnerable.
Much of his stance on Israel stems from liberal ideology that views the Jewish country as “bullies” oppressing the Palestinians, which of course, isn’t the case at all.
Now, according to Real Clear Politics, Obama has come out in an interview with the New York Times and said that he doesn’t worry about Israel’s survival. Naturally, he wrapped this jarring statement in flowery liberal rhetoric to make it seem as if he were pro-Israel, but actions speak louder than words.
“Well, it is amazing to see what Israel has become over the last several decades. I mean, you think about the dream of the early Zionists to have scratched out of rock this incredibly vibrant, incredibly successful and wealthy and powerful country is a testament to the ingenuity and the energy and vision of the Jewish people. And because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival. Others can cause Israel pain, it’s a really bad neighborhood and they can inflict causalities and destruction in parts of Israel but Israel is going to survive, that’s not the issue.”
Obama is once again playing the media and the American people, saying one thing, but doing another.
If the President were as pro-Israel as he tries to act, he would’ve thrown the full support of America behind Israel, aiding them in whatever way possible to neutralize this threat to their country and the rest of the world.
One can clearly see through the political speak and see that Obama is being rather candid here, admitting that deep down, he doesn’t really care all that much for the nation of Israel, something we already knew based on his actions. This is nothing more than an attempt to smooth over questions about why he neglected to support Israel in this fight.
Hopefully, the next occupant of the White House will be able to rebuild the damaged relationship America has with Israel, and the two can once again work together to combat radical terrorism.
