Obama’s Victim: The “Peace Process”

The apparently escalating conflict between the US and Israel did not have to occur. It must be resolved now, before it does irreparable harm to prospects for peace.

The conflict was largely contrived by people with agendas. The initial impetus for the brouhaha was an ill-timed announcement that permits had been issued for building 1,600 additional residences in a part of Jerusalem that had been captured by Israel in the 1967 war. The Netanyahu government had been praised by President Obama for agreeing to a freeze on building permits on the West Bank, despite the fact that the freeze did not extend to any part of Jerusalem. Thus the announcement of new building permits did not violate any agreement by Israel.

Keep in mind B. Hussein Obama, though elected President of a mostly white nation, deliberately set out, he states in his book, to disparage his mother's heritage. She was white.

Obama also states that he stands with the Muslims - making yet another ideal that this administration differs from the past.

I recall John F. Kennedy faced resistance in his Presidential Campaign, because of his avowed faith - he was Catholic. Some feared that would open the door to undue influence of the Catholic Pope over American affairs.

Obama chose to conceal his faith, behind the screen of an angry Christian pastor.

No, it doesn't surprise me that Obama could care less how Israel fares. It isn't like Israel hires UAW or SEIU union members, so the unions aren't going to put their money on one side or the other.

Meanwhile, Obama seems intent on bankrupting America, approaching the time he can seize power as dictator for life.

I have the highest regard for the professionalism, and especially the patriotism of those serving on the Secret Service. I wonder what the retention rate is, under this administration, how many Secret Service agents have found the conflicts between Obama and the Constitution to be overwhelming.
