Obama Tells Jews Where They Can Live
humanevents.com ^ | 06/03/2009 | Joseph Farah

Posted on 06/03/2009 7:09:53 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe

Barack Obama is taking what he and his administration refer to as "a more balanced approach to Middle East policy." Let me explain what that means in real terms. It indicates the U.S. government is now using its clout with Israel to insist Jews -- not Israelis, mind you -- be disallowed from living in East Jerusalem and the historically Jewish lands of Judea and Samaria, often referred to as the West Bank.

I want you to try to imagine the outrage, the horror, the outcry, the clamoring, the gnashing of teeth that would ensue if Arabs or Muslims were told they could no longer live in certain parts of Israel -- let alone their own country.

Of course, that would never happen with "a more balanced approach to the Middle East." It's the 1930s all over again. This time, it's the enlightened liberal voices of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama who are telling Jews where they can live, how they can live and how far they must bend if they want to live at all.

I know you haven't heard it put like this before. I don't really understand why. There is simply no other accurate way to explain the machinations behind the latest demands on Israel from the West and the rest of the world.

Israel is being reduced to "Auschwitz borders." Jews have already been told they can no longer live in the Gaza Strip. Now, they are being told they can no longer choose to live in any of the areas being set aside by international elites for a future Palestinian state.

Again, I ask, "Why would internationalists seek to create, by definition, a racist, anti-Jewish state that doesn't even tolerate the mere presence of Jews?" Can anyone answer that question for me?

I suppose next on his “I Run the World” agenda is telling eastern Europe they have to give back their land to re-establish the Caliphate.

Looks like the Israelis will have to fight-and probably be annihilated in the process if they wait much longer. The majority of American Jews abandoned them.

“”I want you to try to imagine the outrage, the horror, the outcry, the clamoring, the gnashing of teeth that would ensue if Arabs or Muslims were told they could no longer live in certain parts of Israel — let alone their own country. “”

You mean like telling Americans what transportation they can no longer use or what private businesses can or cannot exist? You mean showing support for thugs who intimidate voters with militant berets and billyclubs? You mean like changing a place where Americans live to the extent that it no longer feels like their own country?

Yeah, I’m starting to be able to picture it...

Well, not exactly "all of Eastern Europe" since large chunks of it were retained by Christians (although at the time I'm not sure the Orthodox actually thought Roman Catholics were really Christians).

What's important to know is that there is a belief fairly common in Islamic circles that IF a piece of ground or water had ever been under Islamic control for even a day then it is irredeemably part of the Islamic world (or "Dar al-Islam").

Obama is expressing an Islamic belief in this proposal.

Obama can’t get his enemies to do didly, so he makes nice to them while beating up on his friends (aka, Israel). All the while, they laugh behind his back (or even to his face). And the rest of the world cheers at the awesome display of American “leadership”.

Western Europe may give up without a fight, but I guarantee Poland, Czech Republic etc., will not.

Why not? The State Dept. position is that Jews having children on the West Bank (some 9000 last year) is a grave threat to peace and that no expansion of housing there must be allowed to accommodate them.

(I guess on that basis the State Dept. would have insisted Joseph and Mary go somewhere else to have their child.)

I think Israel and Palestine should both observe the boundaries as determined by the 1948 partition — can someone explain to me what’s wrong with that?

The Obama final solution is as palpable as Der Fueher’s. What is really interesting is Obama’s Himmler is a Jew.

All the while, Israel continues to hold out its naive hand of friendship to the Arabs and the Muslims

Well you know what they say: "Give them an inch, they'll take your arm."

Maybe it's time to quit being naive, if that's what it is. How they can be naive after the Holocaust, I don't know.
