Obama won't back him up and he won't bail him out. Obama doesn't like Israel. He simply doesn't.
I think it's deeper than not like Israel; I think it's a general dislike for all things Jewish.
And I think this attitude is not just Obama's, but the common inheritance of many members of Europes and America's upper classes.
Take for example WWII - you can find this information in David Wyman's 'america and the holocaust'. It is simply astounding learning that America
had multiple opportunities to save the Jews of Europe, and same with Britain, but both decided on not acting. They did everything it seems to delay,
resorting to dilatory tactics like holding 'conferences' to deliberate how they could go about helping the Jews; the first was in 1939 - nothing
came of it. The second, the 'bermuda conference' in 1943, was only set because of Jewish prodding, and even than nothing definite emerged from it.
Than they set up the war refugee board at the end of 1945.
What's most amazing is the state department and war departments refusal to bomb the railroad lines leading to Auschwitz, and even more
flabbergasting, their refusal to bomb Auschwitz when they were running missions in the area.
Why didn't America divert at least one bomber to save hundreds of thousands of lives? How come at all times, Britain made it a bigger priority to
keep the Jewish refugees of Europe out of Palestine than to grant them asylum - even a conditional asylum, like a visa - to take them out of harms
No. Everyone played their part. The Nazis the bad guy murderers, all the nations of Europe they just dallied into, sat idly by and did what the big
bad Nazis told them, all gave up their Jews, all contributed to the horrors committed against them, and the so-called 'good guys' Britain and
America, both showed a complete indifference, or even a general preference, to see Hitler accomplish his sordid task: to eliminate more Jews.
All the information seems to present this as the only plausible reasoning; Christian antisemitism is as old as Christianity. The churches of Europe
were notoriously uncaring in the plight of the Jews of Europe. Even the pope himself seemed to have had a role in his pre-war days as papal nuncio to
berlin; he helped organize the destruction of the catholic center party, which in turn assisted the Nazis to come to power in 1933. Why? You could
claim as the Vatican does, that the pope was defending Catholic interests, but something deeper and far more nefarious seemed to be at work. It should
also bear mentioning - as stated in "Hitlers Pope" that the pope didn't say a word about the Holocaust during its 6 years; he came to power in 1939
as pope - the year the holocaust began, and by 1945, he had said nothing definitive, made no explicit condemnation of Nazi policy towards the
, and all the while claimed he couldn't say anything because he feared Nazi reprisals (ignoring the fact that the greater reich was at
least HALF Catholic, and that the Nazis would never have been so stupid as to start persecuting such a huge segment of the civilian population.
The only rational, plausible answer is: they are scheming against the Jews.
