    What has distinguished Obama’s foreign and domestic actions as President from those he would have taken had he been an enemy of both the US and Israel?

  2. L. Oberstein says:

    For year’s we have used these talking points with little success. It may very well be true that many Arabs left on their own at their leaders’ orders, that the Arab refugee problem was caused by refusal of the Arab states to grant them citizenship , there was an exchange of populations and as many Jews left Arab lands as Arabs fled Israel. It is also true that once secular, socialist Arab dictators like Nasser have been replaced by more Islamic leaders, that there is more and more of a religious aspect to the struggle. This may all be true but the world has moved on and doesn’t sympathise with the Jews any longer. The short window of opportunity to found a Jewish State after the Holocaust closed with the Six Day War. Obama has been inept and failed on more than one front but he pressed for a solution because the sees that time is not on Israel’s side or on the US’s side for that matter.

    If American power and influence continues to decline, don’t expect India and China to come to Israel’s aid. I don’t know what Israel can do to win more battles on the public relations field. It is possible that Israel will find itself more isolated as American power declines, we are not at the end, but only at the beginning of a new century.

    When we learn Jewish History, we are struck by how helpless we were , how we could be robbed, tortured, expelled and killed without lifting a hand to defend ourselves and still remain in existence. For the first time in millenia, we have a Jewish Army in a Jewish State and its economy is strong and on the cutting edge of science and technology. At the same time, the percentage of Jews who for religious reasons refuse to get a secular education with skills needed for the modern world and who are poor and alienated from general society , that percentage is increasing. How can we fight our enemies if Israel unless the ever growing numbers of very religious Jews join the work force, the army and the leadership of society. As secular Israel declines, unless religious Israel steps up to the challenge of running a modern state, we will not only face enemies from outside but civil dissolution within.

    Ori: China has some serious problems of its own, such as inflation and an aging work force. They are a closed society, so their problems stay hidden for longer. I don’t know enough about the situation in India, but they’re more likely to be pro-Israeli than pro-Arab. Their main enemies are also Muslim.

    L. Oberstein: ” … he [Obama] pressed for a solution because the sees that time is not on Israel’s side or on the US’s side for that matter.”

    Balloney. For one, his solution is not a solution. Second, he presses because time is not on his [Obama’s] side. Elections are around the corner. After two yrs. in the office he has nothing to show. So he resorts to arm twisting Israel.

    “Obama has been inept …” Does L. Oberstein have something to comment about the intellectual or/and moral IQ of the 87% of the American Jews (87%!!!) who voted for him? Were they inept, or ‘just’ betrayed Israel for an elusive pot of gold (‘Obama is good for the stock market’)? To his credit, Obama didn’t conceal his indifference, or even outright hostility to Israel from the electorate. We knew where he stood on Israel.
