One would think that the “science” – surrounding Barack HUSSEIN Obama – has already been settled, at least by this critical juncture in time. In plain talk, IF the preponderance/wealth of evidence accumulated so far – demonstrating the Radical-in-Chief’s anti-American bonafides, plus his anti-Zionist ethos – isn’t overwhelming enough, then what exactly will suffice?
Shiver us all timbers.
Now, this blogger – not known for having patience with stupidity…and never claiming to be perfect – is attempting to keep her head from spinning, and quite possibly from exploding. And that would be a good thing, simply because there is ( unfortunately ) so much more work to be done, even if Romney is elected.
Nevertheless, one feels duty bound ( perhaps never knowing when to give up…beating a dead horse comes to mind…just ask my nearest and dearest! ) to keep soldiering on, despite successful odds to the contrary.
So, for the umpteenth time – fellow American Jews – here is the essence pertaining to the Islamist-in-Chief’s anti-American stripes. It is what it is, even if ones Democratic sensibilities/sensitivities are having a terrible time coming to grips, with the disquieting facts at hand.
Embedded within the following commentaries are mountains/volumes/avalanches of evidence, and should be more than enough to convince rational voters; why a vote for Barack HUSSEIN Obama is a vote against American interests. And, there is so much more!
Clear as a bell. Or, so it would seem.
Marching onto….a laundry list of reasons why the Islamist-in-Chief is also a clear and present danger to Israel.

‘Obama rope a dope for a Jewish audience’ –
by HERBERT LONDON September 5, 2012
“The Jewish community of Boynton Beach Florida has sponsored an event on who the Jews might support in the upcoming presidential election. Boynton Beach is not alone. Jewish communities all over Florida are in the process of deciding how to cast their vote. Although I am not a Florida resident, let me explain the conditions an American Jew should consider in entering that November election booth.”
“Although President Obama has indicated he is a staunch ally of Israel and speaks passionately of the bonds that cannot be severed, his actions reveal a different sentiment.”
“When candidate Obama attended an AIPAC meeting, he said unequivocally that Jerusalem should remain the undivided capital of Israel. Recently his aides were asked to name the capital of Israel. They were unable (unwilling?) to do so.”
“While Obama insists he is Israel’s loyal friend, he attended the Reverend Wright’s church for more than two decades as anti Zionist rhetoric flowed from the pulpit.”
“Prior to his presidency, Mr. Obama hailed the work of his pro-Palestinian and vigorously anti-Zionist ally, Rashid Khalidi, albeit a tape of this statement is being held in secret by the LA Times.”
“When the president gave his famous Cairo speech, he juxtaposed the plight of the Palestinians with slavery in the United States, implying that the Palestinian territory’s woes can be attributed to Israel.”
“The president never visited Israel, despite having gone to several Middle East nations. Recently he said he would do so only if reelected.”
“Despite bowing to various leaders, the president invited the Israeli Prime Minister Netayahu through the backdoor of the White House and kept him waiting while he had dinner with his family.”
“While the president carefully couches his remarks about foreign leaders, he spoke disparagingly about Bibi Netanyahu to former President of France Sarkozy.”
“The president’s mishandling of the Iranian nuclear program and his sitting on the sidelines as Assad butchers his own people, has complicated and put in jeopardy Israel’s existence.”
“Although he contends it was merely an extension of U.S. policy, President Obama’s call for a peace agreement based on the 1967 borders was unprecedented.”
“Needless to say, these facts may still not affect Jewish opinion, albeit Obama’s support among Jews has been in steady decline. The president did receive 78 percent of the Jewish vote in 2008 and, whatever surprise may occur between now and November, the magnitude of that vote will not be duplicated.”
“You may fool many of the Jews all the time or all of the Jews some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the Jews all of the time. At least, I hope that is the case.”
Further adding to ( normal) Jewish angst are the changes made to the 2012 Democratic Party’s platform, eviscerating Jerusalem – how dare they ! – as Israel’s historical capital. Compounding insult to grievous injury is the insertion of the “rights of refugees” to “return” to Israel, to be decided during “negotiation”.
What’s there to decide?
Are they insane? Apparently.
In the first place, let this point be inordinately clear – no platform, Democrat or otherwise, has a mandate to declare that Jerusalem is not Israel’s capital. Jewish history and the Jewish Bible are enough of a road map! Besides, if thousands year old Jewish ties/settlements are not qualified renderings of a nation/people’s entitlement, surely less than 300 years hardly binds the U.S. capital to its people.
Nevertheless, political mischief-making, regarding Jerusalem, causes incredible concern, and herein lies its calculus.
Liars…liars…may their pants/skirts catch fire.
As to the misnamed “refugees” – the onus is on the heads of their Arab leaders, having sparked a genocidal war against Israel, and they are still at it! Moreover, in the history of armed conflict the loser has never been gifted the spoils of war. Why is the Jewish homeland treated to a double/hypocritical standard? And to make matters more egregious, millions of people have been (forcibly, if necessary) transferred, resettled elsewhere in order to end said conflicts.
Thus on every level – historical, legal and moral – the Democratic platform is a proverbial ‘Mark of Cain’, never to be erased. Attempting an about face won’t mitigate the grave damage inflicted.
IF fellow tribes people require additional frontal assaults, look no further.
‘U.S. Abandons Israel As Iran Crosses Into ‘Zone of Immunity’ –
“Before our eyes, Iran is slipping into what Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has termed “the zone of immunity” – the position where the critical elements of its nuclear weapons program are so far advanced and so well-protected in underground bunkers that they cannot be destroyed by conventional means.”
“The latest report from the U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) notes that the number of centrifuges installed just since May 2012 at the deeply-buried Fordow enrichment site has doubled (to 2,140 from 1,064 in May, even though all of them are not yet up and running). Enrichment at the Natanz enrichment facility continues as do conversion activities at Isafahan and construction at the Arak heavy water research reactor.”
“Significantly, Iran also seems to be focusing on increasing its output of uranium enriched close to the 20% level, from which it is not difficult to go all the way to the 90% or above needed for weapons grade uranium. All of these activities are in violation of IAEA Board of Governors and UN Security Council resolutions.”
“Additionally, the new IAEA report describes extensive clean-up activities visible in satellite imagery at the Parchin military site, where Iran built a large containment vessel in which to conduct hydrodynamic experiments (explosives experiments for nuclear warhead triggers). At least five buildings at Parchin have been demolished; power lines, fences and all paved roads have been removed; and “significant ground scraping and landscaping have been undertaken over an extensive area.” Despite repeated requests, Iran has not permitted the IAEA to visit and inspect Parchin.”
“In contrast to the IAEA’s permissive stance towards Iran under former Secretary General Mohamed ElBaradei, recent reporting from the IAEA candidly addresses the “possible military dimensions” of the Iranian program and once again in the August 2012 report also cites “activities related to the development of a nuclear payload for a missile” and “activities that are relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device.”
“There are other alarming developments as well. Towards the end of the late August 2012 , at the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting in Tehran (attended by Egypt’s new Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi and featuring a turnover of the group’s leadership from Egypt to Iran), North Korea and Iran signed a new technology agreement.”
“While the two long have cooperated in both nuclear weapons and ballistic missile delivery systems development, a July 2012 report from veteran national defense reporter Bill Gertz focused attention on a Chinese military journal article about a North Korean program to develop a “super-EMP,” a small-scale nuclear warhead that produces massive emissions of high-powered gamma rays that could disrupt or destroy all electronics in its range.”
“Meanwhile, the Iranian nuclear scientist considered by Western observers to be Tehran’s top “nuclear guru,” according to the Wall Street Journal, is back in action after having worked out of the public eye for a number of years. Mohsen Fakhrizadeh is a senior officer of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the elite Iranian military organization charged by the Ayatollah Khomeini in the mid-1980’s to “get the bomb.” In 2000, he began working at Parchin; now, Fakhrizadeh has opened a new research facility in Tehran’s northern suburbs which is focused on nuclear weapons work.”
“Evidence that Iran is closing in on the capability to produce and deliver nuclear weapons, possibly including the devastating “super-EMP,” is mounting. Further, evidence that Iran increasingly is protecting this capability in deep, underground sites that soon may be invulnerable to a conventional air strike is unavoidable. The Jewish State of Israel has never been more vulnerable to existential threat-and yet, now too, the distance between Jerusalem and Washington, D.C. has never been greater.”
“Despite protestations by President Obama that “we’ve got your back,” White House actions speak louder than words. The U.S. has drastically scaled back its troop and equipment commitment to the annual joint U.S.-Israel military exercise, called “Austere Challenge 12.” First postponed from early 2012 to October, the exercise now looks likely to go forward just before the November U.S. presidential election; but the U.S. has slashed the number of its troops that will be participating by more than two-thirds, Patriot anti-missile systems are to be sent without crews to operate them and even the two Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense warships promised as a replacement are not a definite.”
“On the diplomatic front as well, the Obama administration is sending signals that align its policy more closely with that of Tehran than Jerusalem. When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon ignored an Obama request not to lend legitimacy to the mullahs’ regime by visiting Iran and attended the NAM meeting, a former U.S. Assistant Secretary of State went along, too. Jeffrey Feltman (who now works for Ban Ki-Moon at the UN), was photographed at an August 30 meeting (looking distinctly uncomfortable), seated on a couch between Ahmadinejad’s senior Vice-President Mohammad Reza Rahimi and Moon during an audience with Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.”
“As journalist-in-residence at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) Claudia Rosett wrote at PJMedia on August 29, “This is a diplomatic coup for Iran’s regime, which tops the U.S. list of terrorist-sponsoring states, thumbs its nose at UN and U.S. sanctions, and continues to pursue nuclear weapons, coupled with threats to America and America’s allies – including the genocidal threat to annihilate Israel.” It’s also a slap at U.S. ally Israel, which will not have missed the message from its erstwhile friend and protector.”
“Finally, lest it be thought things couldn’t possibly get any worse, there’s the craven comment from the Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, who told reporters in London during a late August visit that he thought Israel could damage but not destroy Iran’s nuclear capabilities-and then added, “I don’t want to be complicit if they choose to do it.”
“Bottom line: Israel can be in no doubt that it is being abandoned in its hour of supreme need by its sometime champion, the former defender of the free world-a United States of America now willingly implementing policies that embolden and empower the forces of Islamic jihad and shariah, whether Sunni or Shi’a, which are dedicated to the destruction of us all.”

But like everything else, it often takes a smack…or two…or ten upside the head for some people to wake up from their (self imposed) stupors. Hopefully, this will be the case with American Jews, if they finally recognize what is good/healthy for them!
