Obama Stabbing Israel in the Back Behind the Scenes
Frontpagemag.com ^ | November 17, 2012 | Daniel Greenfield

Posted on 11/17/2012 9:53:12 PM PST by Qbert

The trajectory of conflicts like these are fairly clear. Israel bombs some terrorist targets and then launches a ground incursion into Gaza to suppress terrorist activities. But the Obama Administration is already working against a ground offensive behind the scenes, as a New York Times report mentions.

Obama supposedly called Netanyahu to discuss options for “de-escalating” the situation, but all those options are going to involve signing on to another meaningless cease fire while Hamas continues carrying out attacks, on and off. Netanyahu has made calling off a ground operation contingent on an end to rocket attacks. Which Obama isn’t likely to be able to deliver. And worse still, Obama has proposed that Egypt broker a ceasefire.

That might have made some kind of sense in the Mubarak era, but today Egypt is run by the Muslim Brotherhood, which also runs Gaza, it’s like asking the Soviet Union to broker a peace between China and India. Worse still, there is good reason to believe that Egypt pushed this conflict to distract from its domestic problems. And the Muslim Brotherhood leader of Egypt, Morsi has been quite blatant about calling for war with Israel.

Obama called Morsi to thank him for his efforts in calming the conflict despite the fact that Morsi made multiple threats against Israel and sent his Prime Minister to Gaza in a show of support to Hamas. That’s a rather strange notion of calming the situation.

Here’s a sample of some of Morsi’s calming efforts

Egypt will continue to support Gaza against continued attacks from Israeli armed forces, President Mohamed Morsi reiterated on Friday.

“The price will be high if the aggression continues,” Morsi said after he performed Friday prayers in Fatma Al-Sharbatly Mosque in Cairo’s Fifth Settlement.

“Egypt is different from yesterday,” he added. “We assure them [Israel] that the price will be high for continued aggression, and [we tell them] you have to bear the responsibility.”

During Morsi’s speech, worshipers chanted: “Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, the army of Mohamed will return,”

Morsi said earlier that “Gaza will not remain alone as it was,” adding that the aggressors “know they will pay a heavy price is they continue their aggression.” He also said that “the Egyptians throughout their history were not an aggressive people, but they are capable of stopping any attack.”

What exactly is Obama thanking Morsi for?

But operating out of some alternate reality, the New York Times article has crazy quotes like these

“If Morsi wanted to use this for populist reasons, he’d be adopting a different posture,” said Martin S. Indyk, the former American ambassador to Israel and the author of “Bending History: Barack Obama’s Foreign Policy.”

“If he wanted to take apart the peace treaty, this is his opportunity,” Mr. Indyk said. “The fact that he’s not and is instead apparently working with President Obama to calm the situation is important.”

Obama then called Turkish Islamist leader Erdogan, who is basically Morsi on steroids, to discuss the situation with him. Turkey took the lead in backing Hamas and its aggressive statements regarding Israel have become so commonplace that they are hardly worth mentioning.

Meanwhile the New York Times keeps pushing three lies

1. Morsi is being pressured into his position by popular outrage

2. Hamas is not responsible for rocket attacks from Gaza

3. Israeli attacks on Hamas are worsening its relationship with Egypt

All three are completely untrue, but they are the building blocks of the appeasement bloc’s arguments. These are the arguments being assembled to back Obama’s betrayal of Israel.

Israel needs to dispense with all the secrecy regarding its nuke arsenals , and clearly state : such and such of your cities are on our target lists and if you make any moves to attack us in support of Hamas , or Hezbollah , you will die by the millions without further warning or notice . Further state that Mecca and Medina and Tehran are also on the targeting list . Just lay it out there , and mean it .

It is going to be tougher for Barack Hussein Mohammet Bin Ghazi Obama to get arms to his AlQuaeda and MB to be used against Israel now that his Benghazi/Syrian conduit been shut down.

SOP over and over. I could not direct Israel's restraint route. One day SOP could turn into DOA for Gaza with my attitude. I must have a terrible attitude according to the world. Will give Thanks, am not pulling for the terrorist side, like most of the world and what appears to be a majority in D.C.

Bibi’s response should be:

“We really appreciate all that America has done for us, up to this point.
We understand Americans have many challenges in front of them, as does Israel.
So, while Israel does what is necessary to assure it’s security and it’s future, we wish you all the best in resolving your challenges.
We’ll get back to you, once we’ve resolved our own.”

It’s been exposed, but what makes you think that it’s shut down any more than Hussein and Hole-Duh aren’t still shipping weapons to the Mexican Cartels?

As usual the Ham-asses have their rocket launchers next to mosques and schools. Typical cowardly ba$tards.

That is why obama’s disciples voted for him. I knew America has a lot of parasites and traitors, but until November 6, 2012 I did not know that there was that many.

If Israel ultimately goes after iran, I hope they crash our defense system with a massive virus. Otherwise they’ll find obama trying to confound the attack at every turn.

Obama's Arab Spring has armed Nazi muslims in their lifelong fight against the jews.

Don't be surprisedd when it is reported American rockets from Egypt are falling on Isreal.

True - I'm of a mind that this is happening now to try to divert Israel from Iran. I pray that Israel uses this as its own feint and springboards to Iran as part of it. Israel needs a modern-day Moshe Dayan and I'd wager Bibi has someone to fill the bill.

There are so many Quislings in this administration that there is no one we can trust. Other countries cannot trust us, either.

During Morsi’s speech, worshipers chanted: “Khaybar, Khaybar, Oh Jews, the army of Mohamed will return,”

LOL - what fools.

The last time radical Muslims won a battle against the Jews was in the year 629 at the Battle of Khaybar ... and the idiots are bragging about it? Think how pathetic it would be if Native American Indians were still bragging about Custer's Last Stand and the Battle of little Bighorn... a thousand years from now.

Radical Muslims: get a life.

Hamas is an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. So, what would you expect from Morsi?

Not a nuke weapons expert, but can Israel bomb in Gaza or southern Lebanon without effecting it’s own country, radiation etc.

"Radical Muslims: get a life."

That's the whole problem in your one sentence. As someone once said (to paraphrase), "When Islamists learn to cherish life more than they relish death, then there is a chance for peace".

Until Islamist savages stop thinking that there are 72 virgins waiting in heaven for them to subjugate (as they do on Earth), they will never amount to anything other than being a pain in the rear of civilized peoples. I have more respect for the backward cultures of the Amazon.

Wow! Talk about facial expression and body language. That photo says everything any Israeli needs to know about Obambi. Yes, people can argue it’s just a moment’s shot and we don’t know what the context was regarding the conversation. But sheesh, look at the disgust on Obama’s face. Even a child could interpret what that look means.
