    The vice president tried to clear the air in an address to Jewish Federations of North America Monday. November 10, 2014 Vice President Joe Biden sought to smooth over U.S.-Israeli relations Monday in an address to the the Jewish Federations of North America. Nearly two weeks after a senior Obama administration official called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "a chickenshit" in an interview with The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, Biden attempted to play down the scuffles that have characterized the leaders' relationship in recent months. He described the two countries' rapport clearly in his signature, colloquial style. "Like all close friends,...

    In a dramatic development, Israeli cabinet members are warning that US President Barack Obama threatened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the US may opt not to oppose future hostile UN Security Council votes, unless Israel accedes to American policy demands, Israel’s NRG News reported on Sunday. “The prime minister told colleagues in recent days … that his office’s understanding of the issue and the government’s take on it is that the Americans will not cast a veto against a resolution that reaches the Security Council,” Ariel Kahana, diplomatic correspondent for the Makor Rishon and NRG dailies, told The Algemeiner on...

    Obama helped overthrow Khadaffy in Libya. And there were several other countries where the Muslime Brotherhood took over with Obama's help during "The Arab Spring" Egypt overthrew Hosni Mrubarek. The MB took over there, but the Egyptian people tossed them out as soon as they realized what was up. Remember that Odumbass wanted to help "the rebels" overthrow Assad in Syria last year? Imagine the position ISIS would be in if Syria and Egypt were still owned by the MB? The 'caliphate' would have been created complete before 6 years of Oshitheads 'presidency', and would probably be attacking the rest...

    The post-Gaza war period has seen some disturbing statements and actions by the United States political leadership that call into serious question its reliability as the leader of the free world and as a trusted ally of Israel. […] Closer to home, the latest evidence that Uncle Sam can no longer be counted on is its reaction to the first meeting of the Palestinian Authority (PA) unity government in Gaza. The Hamas-Fatah leadership meeting was praised by U.S. State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki as “a positive step”. So that we won’t doubt that its words will also be followed by...

    Through his State Department ventriloquist dummy, Barack Obama is denying that there is any truth to a Wall Street Journal article that Obama put a halt to ammunition shipments to Israel. The problem for Obama is that his credibility has long been shot so nothing he or any of his underlings asserts can be believed.At some point, credibility matters and the lack of it can reach a point so low that the default position of those you’re trying to convince is justifiably that you’re lying.Advantage, Netanyahu.

    Since January of last year the European Union has been threatening to boycott any company or entity that does business with the West Bank of Israel. The sanctions, perversely designed by Secretary of State John Kerry, were meant to punish Israel for its settlements in the West Bank and encourage the Jewish nation to adopt Kerry’s peace process framework. The economic boycott threat was entirely one-sided against Israel. Because there were no consequences for the Palestinian Authority should they abandon the peace process, it gave the PA every reason to harden their position and wait for the EU to act...

We've been told that the United States has been systematically denying visas to Shin Bet (General Security Service) and Mossad agents, to representatives of the IDF and to executives of companies in Israel's defense industry, and it was implied that was out of a fear of competition in the defense industry. And we've been told that...

Israel and the US have both used a variety of unconventional methods to attack Iran's nuclear program.

The material specifies, for instance, that the launch site must be completed by the end of next year, by which time, it says, Israel expects to have the Arrow 3 — a missile defense system crucial to Israel’s plans for countering an Iranian nuclear threat — operational.

    New York City councilman Charles Barron, who has called Israel a “terrorist state,” was clobbered in his bid for a Congressional seat but blamed the media and demanded a recount. Barron lost out to state Assemblyman Hakeen Jeffries in the race to succeed retiring 24-year incumbent Congressman Edolphus Towns. The redrawn district is highly Democratic and Jeffries can expect to coast to a victory in the November elections against the Republican party nominee. Jeffries won the primaries Tuesday night by a whopping 72-28 percent margin. Democratic party leaders went all out to prevent an upset victory by Barron, which would...

    The Obama administration warned Egypt's military leaders on Monday to speedily hand over power or risk losing billions of dollars in U.S. military and economic aid to the country. It wasn't enough that Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood to his submission speech in Cairo in June 2009, despite the fact that the group was banned at that time for obvious reasons: they wanted to install a Sharia government, and the draconian, barbaric code of Sharia in Egypt. It wasn't enough that after he invited the Brotherhood to his speech, he had officials in his administration meeting with this Islamic supremacist...
  • Ron Paul to Obama and Romney: “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Get over it.”

    Ron Paul to Obama and Romney: “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Get over it.” News is now leaking out about a private meeting between evangelical leaders and presidential candidate Ron Paul which took place last Wednesday night. The leaders asked Dr. Paul about an Executive Order moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “The real issue here is not what America wants but what Israel wants. We have no right to chose their capital,” Dr. Paul said, “If they say it is Jerusalem, then it is Jerusalem.” The Barack Obama administration has consistently rejected this idea and...

According to Perry, four unnamed senior diplomats and military intelligence officers leaked information indicating that Israel has purchased air force bases in Azerbaijan for use in preparation for an attack on Iran.The...

    The boss has put together an extraordinary rundown of Obama administration leaks showing a trend that is sabotaging Israel’s ability to strike at Iran’s nuclear facilities. The trend is quite revealing because, as Richard Helms, former director of central intelligence, once explained to Michael Ledeen: “Leaks will stop the minute the top people want them to stop…I was ordered several times by a president to find the source of a leak. We found it every time. And most of the time it was his secretary of state or secretary of defense, or chief of staff, or some other very important...
  • Report: U.S. Blaming Israel for Rising Fuel Prices

    04/02/2012 5:45:29 PM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 26 replies
    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....

    Reports from American Intelligence are being leaked to the public to put pressure on Israel to keep them from attacking Iran. Israel and Azerbaijan have struck a 1.6 billion dollar drone and defense deal, supposedly giving Israel access to their bases if they attack Iran. This means the Israelis would not have to refuel if they do attack and that is a game changer. Last Thursday, Ambassador John Bolton, being the straight shooter he is, laid it out succinctly on Fox News. He accused this administration of leaking information deliberately to deter Israel from defending herself. He was responding to...

    I went to the US Consulate this week to take care of certain family business. It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. I think it is ironic that two days after my extremely unpleasant experience at the consulate, State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland refused to say what the capital of Israel is. It was ironic because anyone who visits the consulate knows that the US's position on Jerusalem is in perfect alignment with that of Israel's worst enemies. Last time I went to the consulate was in 2007. At that time the building was located in the middle of an Arab...

    A worldwide pro-Israel Christian ministry is concerned about today's "Global March to Jerusalem." The Times of Israel reports that Arab and international protestors from 80 countries are taking part in today's Global March to Jerusalem to show their solidary for the Palestinian cause. According to Bill Sutter, executive director of The Friends of Israel (FOI), some bad actors are involved. "There are some horrible connections with Hamas, with Hezbollah [and] with Iran," he lists. And one of the leaders in the march is none other than President Barack Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright.
