(Let us call Barack HUSSEIN Obama by his appropriate name: “Allah’s Muslim Terrorist”!)
TO assert that America’s fate is intertwined with Israel’s is hardly an overstatement, nor is it hyperbole. Both are the twin pillars for western civilization. Therefore, it stands to reason that arming and training PA/Hamas aligned “guards” to serve the US Consulate General in Jerusalem is tantamount to stabbing Israel in the back. Literally. Not only that, doing so VIOLATES signed agreements from 2011, as indicated below!
SO let us first explore the armed betrayal, and then we will segue to the electoral putsch. Never ending.
FIRST and foremost, the PA/Hamas terror junta (as of Sept. 25, 2014 they formed an actual governing alliance, therefore, the charade of “good cop/bad cop” no longer applies) pact is not a secret. No sentient actor can rightfully claim otherwise, neither from the American or Israeli side. That is that.
IN this regard, the majority Israeli public, both secular and religious Zionists, are starting to raise their voices (many are “up in arms” about the actual arming of PA/Hamas soldiers within the Consulate), but it has yet to be determined what Israeli officialdom will do – or not – about this blatant violation of a signed agreement in 2011 re said explosive issue!
Three Israeli security guards who worked at the US consulate resigned in the wake of a plan to hire 35 Palestinians from East Jerusalem as armed security guards who are currently undergoing training in Yericho (Jericho). One of them has gone so far as to accuse the consulate of creating “an armed Palestinian militia.”
According to the report in Yediot Aharonot, the plan is to employ the Palestinians mainly to escort convoys of American diplomats in Judea-Samaria.
This is a breach of an agreement between the Consulate and the Israeli government, signed in 2011, whereby only guards who served in combat units in the IDF who are employed by the consulate will be allowed to carry arms.
The report said that the change in the consulate began months ago, with the appointment of consulate security officer Dan Cronin. Employees say that since they started working there seven Israeli security guards were fired, compared with one Palestinian guard.
The three Israeli guards who recently resigned in protest at his behavior, say he is training the Palestinian security guards at the American facility in Jericho, where Palestinian security forces are training. Some of the guards were even flown to the US for training.
Employees who were employed at the consulate blame Cronin for blatantly opposing Israeli and expressing pro-Palestinian statements.
“The law in Israel is only a recommendation for him,” one employee fired. “Cronin does whatever he wants.”
According to them, some of the Palestinian security guards employed at the consulate were arrested in the past for throwing rocks or have relatives who were convicted of hostile terrorist activities.
“The Consulate head’s behavior tends toward the Palestinians, and Cronin actually established a Palestinian armed militia for the Consulate,” an employee said. “He is training them with weapons, combat and tactical exercises. There is a lack of responsibility here – who ensures that such weapons, once given over to Palestinian guards, won’t make their way to terror groups?”
Armory with machine guns, rifles and shotguns
The report further stated that the consulate has an armory with machine guns, rifles and shotguns, without permission from the Israeli authorities, although Israel is aware of the issue. (blogger’s note: Israel’s political leadership, what say you??)
The anti-Israeli character of the consulate today is clear, according to the report: the most senior adviser is a Palestinian Arab, Ibrahim Delalsh, who sat in Israeli prison for belonging to Fatah-linked terror groups. Another advisor is a relative of one of the leaders of Hamas in Jerusalem, Muhammad Hassan Abu Tir, who has been in and out of Israeli prisons many times.
While diplomats at the Consulate live in Jewish areas of western Jerusalem, they consider themselves “American Ambassadors in Palestine,” according to the report. Its armored vehicles often move to and from Judea and Samaria, its people have contacts with the Palestinian Authority and it takes part in surveillance over construction of Jewish communities in the region.
The Consulate said in response: “The US Consulate General in Jerusalem has full confidence in the professionalism of its staff. We do not discuss the security of our diplomatic mission but note that there are many inaccuracies here. In addition, we coordinate our work with local authorities to the fullest.”
However, the report follows a serious breach of that coordination several weeks ago, when Consulate officials entered the Samaria community of Adei Ad with guards armed with M-16s without permission – and nearly caused an international incident.
REGARDLESS, those of us who follow these matters are hardly surprised by Obama Inc.’s latest arming of Israel’s enemy. Far from it. Yes, back in 2011, it was reported: armed (and trained by Washington) PA “police” in Israeli regions!
HUSSEIN OBAMA, you are a treacherous bastard.
ALAS, now that we covered (some of) the armed betrayal, as promised, let’s head to his admins attempt to hijack/steal Israel’s election!
IN the main, as noted in a recent commentary, the Renegade-in-Chief’s blatant interference /manipulation in Israel’s election is a distinct violation of international law. No getting around this.
The Likud party intends to hold a press conference in Tel Aviv Sunday in which it will expose details about “V15 – Victory in 2015,” a campaign it says is using foreign money, and lots of it, to boost Labor and Meretz in the elections.
Likud has filed a motion to the Elections Committee, according to which V15 is carrying out an illegal indirect campaign with a connection to Labor and Meretz. V15 is “making criminal use of foreign sources of funding,” adding that the sums involved were “very high” and their sources unknown.
Likud’s press conference will include MK Miri Regev and Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis.
Haaretz announced that the foreign funded organization “One Voice” is bankrolling the V-2015 campaign. Jeremy Bird, the Obama campaign’s national field director, flew in to Israel with a team of consultants and is running a grassroots, Obama-style campaign from an office in Tel Aviv which takes up the entire ground floor of the building. V-2015 is not supporting a specific party. They are for anyone, “just not Bibi.” Therefore, they believe that the foreign funding pouring into the campaign will not be subjected to Israel’s campaign finance laws. (blogger’s note: oh really now, since when is a foreign gov’t ALLOWED to pour mega funds into a sovereign nation’s elections, regardless of the “non-specificity” of a candidate?…not even the pretense of splitting hair’s will change its illegality)
When asked whether their goal was “Anyone but Bibi,” the response was, “We say ‘replace the government,’ it’s not directed at specific individuals. There have been many years of right-wing governments during which little happened, it’s time to change course and give people hope.”
OneVoice is expected to merge with V15 before the March 17 election, the newspaper revealed, noting the groups have a common goal: To recruit tens of thousands of volunteers for house-to-house canvassing, knocking on anywhere between 150,000 and 1 million doors — a method that was effective in Obama’s first presidential campaign, in particular.
Likud said Saturday evening that Labor and Meretz are “trying to buy governmental power with money.” It said that the New Israel Fund (blogger’s note: New Israel Fund is a radical foreign funded anti-Zionist entity) was among the bodies involved in the campaign, and that millions were also flowing in from Europe – in “a serious breach of campaign laws that define foreign donations to political parties in Israel as a criminal offense.”
‘Likud in panic’
The V15 campaign reacted to the motion by saying that “Netanyahu is in a state of panic. After Likud’s campaign staff accepted the fact that it has lost the ground and the streets, the party’s lawyers are trying to stop the energies and buzz around Victory 2015. We bring with us innovative work plans that were learned in successful campaigns worldwide. Obama’s ‘enlistment’ to the campaign exists only in the fevered minds of the right wingers and Likudniks.” (blogger’s note: Tzipi Livni et al…okey dokey…if you say so!)
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY-1, have sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry asking for information regarding V15, in which they stated that “given the overtly partisan nature of this particular case, we are deeply concerned by the relationship that also exists between OneVoice and the U.S. Department of State. OneVoice lists the State Department as a partner on its website. In its 2013 annual report, the CEO of OneVoice touted the organization’s work ‘together in partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem…made possible by two parallel U.S. Government grants.’ According to a U.S. government website, OneVoice twice received grants from the State Department in 2014.”
“Given the public statements by a number of Obama administration officials, including the President, that it would be “inappropriate”[ for the government of the United States to exercise any influence over elections in a foreign country including Israel, we believe this issue demands your urgent attention. There appears to be a danger that U.S. taxpayer funds are being used to directly shape the outcome of the upcoming Israeli election--and specifically to campaign against Prime Minister Netanyahu–something all would agree would be highly inappropriate.”
Cruz and Zeldin demanded to know how much funding the US government has provided to OneVoice, and who approved providing such funds. They also asked if there was any knowledge from the State Department or other US government officials of the partnership with V15 prior to providing funds to OneVoice.
Following the revelations regarding V15, the Zionist Organization of America stated that “Obama’s campaign team is giving advice in Israel on how to defeat Netanyahu, while Obama refuses to meet Netanyahu and hypocritically says that it is because such a meeting could be seen as interfering in the election.”
YET, it gets worse….in so far as what will actually happen, if, heaven forfend, Tzipi Livni and crew take over the helm, even though PM Netanyahu leaves a lot to be desired. Indeed, Barack HUSSEIN Obama is working like the devil to upend the majority public’s electoral will.
STILL, for the best analysis on such a horrific outcome, look no further than to Dr. Martin Sherman’s recent Jerusalem Post column, “The Demise of Israeli Patriotism?” As always, he lays it on the (strategic) line.
MOST significantly, the above signifies the hyper disdain Obama Inc. has for Israel, and not just for its so-called right wing (often feckless) leadership. In fact, no rational observer, nor individual who possesses a modicum of personal integrity, can argue that the (criminal) regime within Washington isn’t treating Israel akin to a vassal state. An enemy. No exaggeration.
ON a very basic level the most URGENT questions become: what exactly are Israel’s security agencies doing – or not – about Obama Inc.’s illegal arming/training of the enemy at the US Consulate General in Jerusalem? and, will they raid the ILLEGAL offices of “One Voice”, Obama’s “boots on the ground”, his electoral soldiers in Israel, in the same manner in which they (often) raid the homes of those who are true Zionists and national patriots?
DO pigs fly?
