"Channels theme of 'Rules for Radicals' book dedicated to Lucifer"
JERUSALEM In his address in Jerusalem today, President Obama channeled Saul Alinsky, citing the radical community organizers defining mantra as he urged young Israelis to create change to nudge their leadership to act.
Obama told a crowd of college students at Jerusalems main convention center that Israel has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.
One of Alinskys major themes was working with the world as it is to turn it into the world as it should be.
In his defining work, Rules for Radicals, which he dedicated to the first rebel, Lucifer, Alinsky used those words to lay out his main agenda. He asserted radical change must be brought about by working within a system instead of attacking it from the outside.
It is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. That means working in the system, wrote Alinsky.
Obama related his Alinsky quote to a suggestion that peace begins with the people and not just the leadership a statement some may relate to community organizing.
He further suggested Israelis do an end-run around the countrys leadership and create the change that you want to see.
The president said: That is where peace begins not just in the plans of leaders, but in the hearts of people; not just in a carefully designed process, but in the daily connections that take place among those who live together in this land, and in this sacred city of Jerusalem.
He continued: Speaking as a politician, I can promise you this: Political leaders will not take risks if ............

He is going over to Israel advocating that the Israelis overthrow their own government.
The article does not say how the young Israelis responded. My guess is that they do not have the luxury of believing the Obama nonsense.
I’m with you. I think most Israeli young people see the danger all around them. Obama’s used to talking to young people here, Jews and non-Jews alike who have always lived cushy lifestyles and don’t know what it’s like to be threatened on a daily basis. They are clueless, his constituency.
Did his speech to the “Palestinians” include any such language?
Did his speech to the Palestinians include any such language?
Of course not.
All that Alinsky trash talk is geared to sweet talking the empty heads in the mainstream to suspend their sense of reality and go along with his insanely destructive agenda.
This page is taken from the standard operating procedure on how communists
snake charm the masses into giving them power.
Then comes the camps, the reign of terror and the mass murders.
Yet here it was lauded as an amazing speech bla, bla bla...
Let us hope these young Israelis were not hoodwinked like so many college kids here were/are with his community organzier Saul Alinsky Bu!!$-hit.
It is almost funny he held no job other than rabble rousing, and trying to change things and now he wants to try it in Israel.
I'd love to see who ( Progessive Organizations ) is working behind the scenes, and who's money ( Soro's ) is pouring in to Israel to nudge them into Obama's future.
Wouldn't suprise me if Van Jones ends up their soon...
That picture should be titled; “Hey Joe, Over and Under Shotgun my @$$, no kick-back!”
Or, as Fat Teddy put it, eulogizing and quoting his brother in 1968,
"Some men see things as they are and say why.
I dream things that never were and say why not."
I say, WTF?
We need no Alinskys, no Kennedys, no stinkin' Obamas!
obama’s not any smarter than the idiots who vote for him. He’s a puppet that does what he’s told. He can quote all kinds of things. But he hasn’t written one original sentence in his life. Thus the teleprompter.
Late Libertarian/Gay talk show host from Boston David Brudnoi noted after reading Atlas Shrugged and becoming a Libertarian and hearing JFK's "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country" it hit him as Fascistic and hated that line...
You know the more you think about it, it may be prudent to look @ anything the Kennedy's, Clinton's etc say that is quotable and find out what is the quotes real roots and where are they going with it....
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
After all, look at how well “arab spring” is working out, especially in Egypt and Libya
What next, kangaroo court and a trial for Netanyahu?
Have the Jordanians and Saudis yet invited JugEars to come speak and incite their university students to populist uprising against the governments?
“Obama told a crowd of college students”
Carefully chosen college students I’l bet. Even in Israel they have their share of FAR LEFT college students. I heard on talk radio that students from the more conservative colleges weren’t invited. In other words, he was playing to a well planned audience.
Think about it. Does Zero address Liberty University here in the US? No he goes to Columbia or another leftie college/university. Don’t think for a minute that his audience was regular average Israeli students!!!! Everything he does is stage and orchestrated!
Israel has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.
I read this as, "the world around you is deadly, militant, radical and Islamic, but it could be a beautiful, smooth, peaceful sea of glass. It's up to you."
unfortunately for them, they are surrounded by Arabs who dream of the world as it should be, and to them, its a world without Israel. but hey, its a feel good warm and fuzzy moment for Obammie., who doesnt have to live with the consequences.
Not satisfied to screw up our country he goes to Israel to screw up theirs.
