There are only two nations the President of the United States finds fault with, on a consistent basis, and those two unlucky nations are: the United States of America and the Jewish State of Israel. It’s bad enough to be an American who realizes that we’ve elected a man who is fundamentally anti American as our president: but I fear Obama’s faithlessness and arrogance is now a formidable danger to our ally Israel. In the world view of the former Harvard Constitutional Law Professor, Barak Obama feels no need to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States because he knows better. Obama has set about replacing the constitution, which he views as deeply flawed and obsolete, with a “living and evolving” constitution by which he can justify anything. He want to appoint “feeling” judges who will judge the social outcomes, and not confine themselves to mere law, or racist concepts of right and wrong. Obama is not defending the constitution he’s at best trying to redefine it or at worst trying to get rid of it. The same holds true of our traditional values and alliances which Obama has been taught to see as the superstructure of white male oppression that perpetuates our exploitation of others and keeps the oppressors ultimately in control. Obama has absorbed this through twenty years at the Church of Jeremiah Wright, immersion in institutional “Multiculturalism” in higher education and by his literary heroes like Malcolm X and Saul Alinski. As the American left has adopted European Socialism, by any other name, they’ve also absorbed much of the latent anti Semitism that abounds in Europe. While the people watch the Economic Crisis and the Swine Flu Crisis the Obama administration has been making deals with Iran and sticking it to Israel at every opportunity.
· Obama has perused the ability to ship troops and equipment to Afghanistan via Iran and a back door deal with Ahmadinejad. One wonders what we must have traded to Iran for this miracle of diplomacy, or abject stupidity, as the case may be. How valuable is a military logistics route if you can’t count on it when there’s real trouble? Remember when our ally Turkey refused to give our troops passage during the Iraq war and we had to change our battle plan at the last minute?
· Obama has given tacit approval to Turkey recently when the Turks held their first ever joint military exercises with Syria. (Iran by any other name) The Israeli’s were deeply shocked that an increasingly Islamic NATO member would hold exercises with a rouge state like Syria and even more shocked that Washington seemed to approve. Washington is letting it be known that they don’t care about Israel and they want better relations with Iran and Syria and for that matter Turkey even if they have to throw Israel under the bus to do it.
· Obama has approved of a large Turkish Arms Sale to Lebanon who has let it be known that they would join a Middle East war on the side of Iran and Syria against Israel. If you’re sitting in Tel Aviv you must be wondering that if you have friends like Barak Obama who needs enemies? Turkish arms will certainly be used from Lebanon against Israel when Israel is forced to attack Iran and neutralize their nuclear program. The United States could have stopped this arms sale but very pointedly did not.
· Obama is now allowing Iran to sell its natural gas to Europe via a pipeline that goes from the Caspian Sea via Turkey to Europe. Wasn’t the idea to make tougher sanctions on Iran as an incentive to make them give up their nuclear program? I thought I read that somewhere! How does helping Iran sell gas give them an incentive to give up their nuclear program and their stated ambition to wipe Israel off the map? At best it seems inexplicably inconsistent and at worse it seems like the heights of treachery to our friend Israel.
As we in America have learned in the last few months: Don’t listen to Obama’s words, they mean nothing, but judge him by what he does. Obama was a big mystery coming into office and some thought he was a pragmatic centrist while others though him a committed leftist. Those who argued that he’s a socialist pointed to his voting record in the senate where he was rated the most liberal member of an organization that included Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer. Since taking office Obama has been the most socialist, anti Christian, anti capitalist, anti American, anti Israel president we’ve ever had. A man of Obama’s moral fiber has alliances that are momentary and fleeting and Israel would be foolish to count on this man. Obama is clearly after, and rigorously pursuing, the end of capitalism and free speech and the creation of socialized medicine and a carbon tax that is thinly disguised economic suicide in an already over stressed economic milieu.
It sticks in my craw to say it but Israel must be made to understand that the American People still support them and admire them but the American President would sell them out in a heartbeat. Obama is no great friend of Israel nor of the United States. Obama’s words are nothing as compared to his actions, which are flagrantly Anti Israeli, if not Anti Semitic. At this critical time Obama is abandoning Israel as his actions clearly illustrate and giving aid and assistance to those who would destroy another six million Jews given half the chance. Israel needs to make plans for a world that includes a neglectful if not passively hostile American administration and must see to her own security. If Israel doesn’t look after her interests no one will because the Obama Administration is now and will continue to stab her in the back.
Consider the following clips from the Debka File:
DEBKAfile – We start where the media stop
Talks on Iranian corridor for US troops, supplies to Afghanistan on fast track
From DEBKA-Net-Weekly updated by DEBKAfile
April 28, 2009, 8:40 PM (GMT+02:00)
On March 27, DEBKA-Net-Weekly 390 revealed exclusively Barack Obama’s plans “to transform the Khomeinist Islamic Republic’s clenched fist against America into a helping hand by formally asking Tehran to permit the passage to Afghanistan of fresh US troops, weapons and supplies across Iranian territory.”
In its follow-up of April 3, our military sources reported that US defense secretary Robert Gates, Chief of Staff Adm. Mike Mullen and transport command chief Gen. Duncan J. McNabb, have laid before the president a detailed plan, which had been cleared in back-door meetings between US and Iranian officers.
DEBKAfile‘s sources ask how much leverage against Iran’s drive for a nuclear bomb will be left to Washington when the US becomes dependent on Tehran for its war supplies to Afghanistan.
Tuesday, April 28, US envoy Dennis Ross set out on an extensive tour for pouring oil on troubled waters in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Bahrain and Qatar. He is accompanied by the deputy commander of U.S. Central Command, Lt. Gen. John R. Allen, and National Security Council official Puneet Talwar.
Like secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who promised in Beirut this week that the US was not selling Lebanon out by dealing with Syria, Ross will try and reassure America’s Arab friends that Washington’s new ties of friendship and strategic cooperation with Tehran will not be at their expense.
Egypt is signally its willingness to team up with Israel to counter those ties, with Saudi Arabia quietly following suit.

Turkish-Syrian exercise prompts Israeli review of sophisticated arms sales to Ankara
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report
April 27, 2009, 11:21 AM (GMT+02:00)
Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak commented Monday, April 27, that Turkey’s decision to hold three days of military maneuvers with Syria is “disturbing.”
And that is not all. The exercise will be accompanied Monday or Tuesday by the signing of a letter of intent between Turkish defense minister Vecdi Gonul and his Syrian counterpart Hassan Turkmani for cooperation in the defense industry.
Israel is now in a hurry to slash its military exchanges with Turkey to prevent the leakage of military secrets to an avowed Arab enemy.
Ankara is furthermore defaulting on payments for military purchases and other contracts. It has piled up a debt of several million dollars to Israel’s military and air industries, in payment for a $5 billion deal to build a Mark 3 Chariot plant in Turkey. Production of 1,000 Israeli tanks, to have been Turkey’s main theater tank, should have begun in early 2009.
Construction is now halted.
The Turkish armed forces is no long the body it once was. The generals of today are in harmony with Recip Tayyep Erdogan’s decision to turn Turkey’s back on Israel.
DEBKAfile – We start where the media stop
Israel shocked by Obama’s approval of large Turkish arms sale to Lebanon
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report
April 22, 2009, 10:49 PM (GMT+02:00)
DEBKAfile quotes senior Israeli military circles as staggered by the discovery that US president Barack Obama had approved a large Turkish arms sale to the Lebanese army, including the services of Turkish military instructors. This was taken as further proof that the US president is deaf to Israel’s immediate security concerns. Lebanese president Gen. Michel Suleiman has more than once threatened neighboring Israel. When he signed the arms deal in Ankara Tuesday, April 21, he once again pledged publicly to place the Lebanese army at the disposal of the Shiite terrorist Hizballah in any confrontation with Israel.
If that happened, said one Israeli source, Israel could find itself under attack not just by Hizballah as in the past, but by a Lebanese army, well trained and armed by Turkey. He noted that more than 50 percent of Lebanon’s fighting manpower are Shiites loyal to Hizballah.
The conviction is growing in Jerusalem that the US president endorsed the transaction as a means of breaking up the long-standing military pact between Israel and Turkey, because it interferes with his Middle East objectives. Our sources note that neither Washington nor Ankara bothered to inform Israel of the transaction or its scope.
After meeting Turkish president Abdullah Gul, Suleiman at the head of a large Lebanese military delegation signed the contracts for the sale and declared with deep satisfaction: “We reviewed the new [US] policies towards the region in the light of President Obama’s recent visit to Turkey.”

Washington to cut Iran in on Nabucco pipeline
April 28, 2009, 11:26 AM (GMT+02:00)
Iran is about to become a major fuel supplier to the West, DEBKA-Net-Weekly reports.
For the sake of dialogue and cooperation, Washington is ceding Tehran the chance to feed its natural gas into the 3,000 kilometer-long Nabucco pipeline project (from the Caspian to the EU via Turkey).
The strategic-economic consequences of the Obama administration’s major perk for Iran is analyzed in the coming DEBKA-Net-Weekly‘s issue out Friday.
