Report: U.S. Blaming Israel for Rising Fuel Prices
Arutz Sheva/IsraelNationalNews.com ^ | 3/4/12 | Elad Benari

The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.

The report cited a leading U.S. analyst, Robert Satloff, who returned from talks with Israeli officials.

Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said, according to The World Tribune, that the Israeli leadership saw Washington as attributing the higher gas prices to “Israel’s posturing” on Iran.

“They think the Iranians should be held responsible for the higher gasoline prices,” Satloff was quoted as having said.

He added that the officials told him the Obama administration was staging a campaign to undermine Israel.

“I cannot underscore how deep and visceral the [Israeli] comments of the leaking that came out of Washington were,” Satloff said, noting Israel is alarmed by what officials determined were leaks by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama of purported Israeli preparations to attack Iran.

The Israeli concerns come in the wake of a report in Foreign Policy magazine last week, according to which Israel has purchased an airfield in Azerbaijan on Iran's northern border, prompting the United States to watch very closely.

Journalist Mark Perry wrote that the Obama administration is monitoring Israel's relations with Azerbaijan, particularly its military ties.

Yup.

Read the end of the Bible. The Jews will stand alone. We’re almost there.

Darn those Jews; if they would just hurry up and let themselves be wiped out gas would be cheaper.

Can’t be the impact of QE and resulting devaluing of dollar.
Can’t be playing with the strategic reserve (OPEC simply reduces output in advance to compensate)
Can’t be businesses using futures to hedge against price spikes.

Good, maybe they can get Obama’s butt kicked out of office.

We need gas at $6 per gal in October, get on it Israel.

If the “journalist” referred to as Mark Perry is the one who wrote for leftwing newspapers and journals, some in the DC area, then watch out for his credibility, which I view as very suspect.

If Satloff/Israelis are right about Obama/State Dept. undermining Israel’s defense, then “Houston we have a problem”, and Obama will have a big Jewish one in November, even bigger than the one they have now.

Obama is beginning to sound like Helen Thomas, who always blamed the world’s ills on the “Joosz”. I wonder if she is going to get a job in Obie’s next administration if he wins.

I’m Jew-rubbing my hands in glee at the thought. Think I’ll drop into Tehran and leave a flaming poop bag in front of Ahmadenijad’s door and ring the bell. That oughta be good for a 10 cent spike.
