20 Ways Obama Used His Presidency to Set Israel Up for Destruction
The recent sell out by Obama in which, for the first time ever, the U.S. refused to veto an anti-Israel U.N. resolution concerning Israeli settlements was just the tip of an iceberg. Indeed, while Obama pretended to be pro-Israel, he and his team of anti-Semitic middle eastern advisors did everything they could over the last 8 years to undermine Israel, clearly in an attempt to weaken them so that they would eventually be destroyed by their Islamic neighbors.
The propaganda campaign initiated by Obama to convince wealthy American Jews that he was pro-Israel was a masterpiece of deception but with a compliant media that refused to cover his multitude of anti-Israeli policies and actions, we should not be surprised that many Jews to this day think Obama was a supporter of Israel.
First, its needs to be made clear that both President Obama and his first Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, have long histories of associating with anti-Israel and anti-Semitic people and organizations. Obama has been associated with a large number of notorious anti-Semitic and anti-Israel activists such as Palestinian activists Rashid Khalid and Ali Abunimah, anti-Israel activist Bettylu Saltzman, his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, anti-Israel Rabbi Arnold Wolf, and the late notorious pro-PLO professor Edward Said, not to mention dozens of his own appointees — such as Chuck Hagel, Robert Malley, and Samantha Power—have long histories of anti-Israel actions and statements. These are not just acquaintances of Obama, but people he has been associated with for decades.
And Hillary Clinton is no different. Her closest advisor while Secretary of State was Sidney Blumenthal, a long-time Israel hater whose son, Max, is a professional anti-Israel hater and author; indeed his latest book was even attacked by liberals for being too anti-Israel but his father aggressively defended it. In 2010, private emails released by the State Department show Sidney Blumenthal urging Clinton to take a harder line on the Israel-Palestinian peace talks. What’s more troubling, however, are the emails showing the elder Blumenthal forwarding many of his son’s rabidly anti-Israel articles to Clinton, to which she responded with compliments such as “Pls congratulate Max for another impressive piece. He’s so good.”
1 – Israeli officials, both on and off the record, state that Obama and his two Secretaries of State (Clinton and Sen. John Kerry) have pursued the most anti-Israel foreign policy in history and have thus endangered Israel’s survival. According to Israel Today, officials close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Obama in 2010 as a “strategic catastrophe” for Israel and a “serious threat to the future of the State of Israel.” They also said “President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have drawn a clear line, supporting the Palestinian position.” In 2012, Danny Danon, the Deputy Speaker of Israel’s Knesset said that “Obama’s victory demonstrates that the state of Israel must take care of its own interests….Obama has hurt the United States by his naïve leadership in foreign policy, which prefers the Arab world over the Western world, along with Israel.” This type of language from Israeli officials is unheard of in the past.
2 – Not only has Obama ordered Israel to not bomb Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities, but Obama reportedly threatened to shoot down any Israeli jets attempting to bomb Iran. For the first few years of the Obama presidency, Obama officials repeatedly told the media they were unsure if Iran was building the bomb, even though our intelligence agencies knew it was occurring. Then, once Iran’s bomb making program became more advanced, the Obama administration warned Israel to not bomb them, claiming more time was needed for sanctions to work and that they “could be undone if [Iran] was attacked prematurely.”
By 2014, Iran’s program was at a turning point and Israel reportedly decided they had to bomb Iran’s facilities or else end up being threatened perpetually by Iran, but Obama saved Iran again by threatening to shoot down Israel’s jets, according to a Kuwaiti newspaper story based on a conversation with an Israeli minister. Of course, this is denied by Obama. Then, the Obama government negotiated the nuclear accord with Iran, which gives official recognition to its nuclear weapons program while still allowing nuclear weapons to be developed. As a result, it is now nearly impossible for Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities due to the political and diplomatic fall-out that would likely occur. Obama essentially used his eight years of office to protect the Iranian nuclear weapons program from its early stages to the point at which it may be impossible to stop. Once again, Obama has asserted himself to be the protector of Muslims at America’s expense. Indeed, for the first time ever, a radical Islamist country dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the U.S. will have a nuclear bomb in just a few years.
3 – The Obama Administration leaked Israeli military secrets in order to prevent them from even considering bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities. Obama officials started to leak top secrets in order to embarrass Israel and expose its plans to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power. Obama officials leaked a story that Israel’s spy agency, the Moussad, assassinated some of Iran’s nuclear scientists in the hopes of slowing down its nuclear weapons program. Info about a covert deal was leaked in which Saudi Arabia would allow Israel to use its airspace to attack Iran. It was also leaked that Azerbaijan offered Israel use of an airbase to attack Iran and finally it was leaked that the Israelis are funding and training the Iranian opposition group Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK). The purpose of these leaks is to prepare Iran to detect any possible Israeli air strikes so that Iran will continue to be a nuclear power in the Middle East.
4 – Obama ordered the surveillance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because he feared Israel was planning to bomb Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program. Naturally, Israel has considered this option since, after all, Iran has repeatedly called for Israel’s destruction and Israel has every right to preempt Iran. But instead of working to stop Iran from further developing its nuclear weapons program, Obama has ordered the NSA to monitor Netanyahu, which may be a first for the U.S. According the Wall Street Journal, Obama has shut down spying on most American allies, but not Israel.
5 – While Obama and Secretaries Clinton and Kerry have helped Iran become a nuclear power, they have simultaneously undermined Israel’s nuclear program by banning its scientists from U.S. universities and exposing details of its nuclear program. The U.S. has always kept what it knows about Israel’s nuclear weapons program secret—until now. After all, Israel is the leading target worldwide of Islamic terror and without nuclear weapons for self defense, it would have been destroyed by now. In 2015, Obama’s Pentagon declassified a 1987 report on Israel’s nuclear weapons program. As Israel National News wrote, Israel’s nuclear program was “a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the U.S. until now has respected by remaining silent.” Moreover, Israel Today reported that not only has Obama refused to give visas to Israeli nuclear scientists to attend American universities but have placed an unofficial embargo on parts needed for Israel’s nuclear reactor. Obama’s obsession with embarrassing Israel may have contributed to a Middle East Arms race.
But hostility toward Israel’s nuclear weapons program dates back to the beginning of the Obama presidency. In 2010, Obama and Secretary Clinton hosted a nuclear security summit in Washington DC, but Israel refused to attend because Netanyahu “didn’t want another lecture by Hillary” nor did he want to listen to endless attacks on Israel by radical Islamic regimes such as Turkey. Once again, the Obama administration allows events they control to be turned into anti-Israel propaganda events by radical Islamic regimes. Meanwhile, the Obama administration has done everything possible to help Iran become a nuclear power.
