Would the US sacrifice Israel in the name of stability
President Obama has shown a dedication to improving relations with muslim nations in the middle-east. Israel, one of the United States closest allies,
is in constant conflict with these muslim nations (Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Iran) as well as other "terrorist" groups who operate within the borders of
these countries (Hezbollah, Hamas, Al-Quieda). The United States is actively leading the war on terror operating largely in Iraq and Afghanistan. This
would seem to even strenghten our relationship with Israel due to common enemies. However, there seems to be clues lending creedence to the thought
that the US might end up sacrificing Israel in an effort of stability.
We all know about the debate over Obama's islamic ties and his father's muslim heritage. However, Obama has plainly stated that he is in fact a
Christian. For arguments sake let's leave out the debate about different Obama conspiracies. Let's instead debate about implied policies of his
In this speech given in Egypt Obama essentially pooh-poohs the 9/11 attacks attributing them only to a small portion of the muslim world.
Violent extremists have exploited these tensions in a small but potent minority of Muslims
His administration frowning upon Israel last month.
"I condemn the decision by the government of Israel to advance planning for new housing units in East Jerusalem," Biden said in a statement issued
just hours after he met with Israeli leaders in the region.
It is clear that Obama is pooh-poohing the past between the United States and the muslim middle-east. He is willing to forgive and forget so to speak.
Ultimately, where do his true priorities lie. Is it possible that at some point, in the near future, that the US will view Israel as the source of
instability in the region. Furthermore, due to our allegiance with Israel, might we begin to take actions distancing ourselves from them.
'U.S. distancing itself from Israel on Iran issue'
Under the Bush Administration, America was willing to go into battle without the backing of the United Nations. The Nobel Peace prize winning Obama
would certainly not do something like that. If Israel attacked Iran or one of their neighbors either unprovoked, or provoked without backing from the
UN, would we remain loyal? Would we break our ties with them?
At best, Barack Obama committed the latest big mistake in his conduct of foreign policy last week. At worst, the president carried out a deliberate
operation intended to weaken the U.S.-Israel relationship and turn the public against the Jewish State.
Is there a concerted effort to abandon Israel? Would we remain loyal in the event of a world conflict, or sacrifice them in the name of stability?
Israelis have good reason to worry. President Obama has shown disdain for U.S. allies and a special disdain for America’s special relationships with
Britain and Israel. He seems more comfortable bowing to authoritarian rulers and hugging Hugo Chavez than dining with Israel’s Benjamin
