The actions of President Obama with regard to unrest in the Middle East is troubling, to say the least. His stance with regard to Arab relations with Israel often leaves the Jewish state scratching their heads, wondering if the United States with Barack Obama as the Head of State and Commander-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces can be relied upon as a trusted ally. He favored a return of Israel to its pre-1967 borders, which literally would have made Israeli jet liners easy targets to be shot out of the sky as they attempted to land. President Obama's constant reference of the Islamic uprisings in which Christians and Jews are being murdered as the "Arab Spring" is equally troubling. Imagine if Franklin Delano Roosevelt had referred to the murder of Jews in Germany and other parts of Europe before and during the Second World War as the "German Spring". Gil Ronen at Arutz Sheva (IsraelNationalNews.com) wrote in his Jun 24 article: "Netanyahu: Israel Expects Cooperation with Mursi"
"The friendliness of U.S. President Barack Obama toward the Muslim Brotherhood, a movement formerly considered illegitimate by the West, is now seen as one of the reasons for Mubarak's downfall and the Brotherhood's rise to power. Israelis are now concerned that Egypt may cease to honor its treaty with Israel, and that terror from Sinai and Gaza will increase. An even more worrisome scenario would involve the remilitarization of the Sinai, which serves as a buffer zone between Israel and Egypt."
President Obama's religious background associated with Hamas friendly Jeremiah Wright (July 22, 2007 Trinity Church of Christ bulletin reprinted Mousa Abu Mazook's "Hamas' Stand) for 20 years, coupled with such a strong endorsement of him by the Israeli media, one has to wonder why anyone of Jewish descent would vote for him, unless of course they have a death wish.
Of course, the fact that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has very close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood doesn't help to make one feel better about the policy of the Obama administration. Saleha Mahmood Abedin, mother of Clinton's Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, served as a delegate for the Muslim World League, an Islamic fundamentalist group that Osama Bin Laden reportedly told an associate was one of his most important charity fronts.
According to this article,
, in the 1980s, the League's Pakistan office was run by Mohammed Jamal Khalifa, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood and brother-in-law of Osama bin Laden. He helped to finance Operation Bojinka, a foiled 1995 plot that would have simultaneously detonated bombs aboard eleven U.S.-bound airliners, blowing them up in mid-flight over the Pacific Ocean and the South China Sea. Also, two members of an al Qaeda sleeper cell based in Boston worked at MWL's Pakistan office. One worker, Nabil al-Marabh, number 27 on the FBI's list of wanted terrorists, was arrested by federal agents in Detroit shortly after 9/11; it was reported that he "intended to martyr himself in an attack against the United States." The other operative, Raed Hijazi, was apprehended and tried in Jordan on charges that he planned to blow up a hotel filled with Americans and Israelis on New Year's Eve in 2000. The Muslim World League at one time oversaw Rabita Trust, a now-defunct charity whose professed purpose was to give aid to Afghani refugees in Pakistan. According to the Washington Post (Hilzenrath and Mintz, October 19, 2001), the Rabita Trust was among 39 organizations and persons whom had their assets frozen by the United States Treasury Department. MWL is an observer member of the Organization of Islamic Conferences, an inter-governmental coalition dedicated to "liberating Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa from Zionist occupation."
Attorney General Eric Holder doesn't exactly give reassurance that he is up to the task of defending the United States against Islamic terrorism either. In an appearance before the House Judiciary Committee, Holder refused to say the words "radical Islam".
This shouldn't be surprising that Mr. Holder would be reluctant to say this. The law firm Covington & Burling, at which he was a senior partner, represented 17 Yemeni terrorists that were housed at Guantanomo Bay in Cuba. One of the 17 whom was released, blew himself up in a truck bombing in Mosul, Iraq in 2008. The explosion killed 13 soldiers from the 2nd Iraqi Army division and wounded 42 others.
Yes, Barack Obama was Commander-in-Chief when Osama Bin Laden received the justice that he deserved. However, so many signs exist that our Commander-in-Chief is a foe of Israel rather than a friend, that one has to wonder where his true allegiance will fall if and when all out war erupts between Israel and the Arab nations.
