ELDER PATRIOT – The recent actions by Obama putting Israel at risk and elevating the Palestine Liberation Organization have finally awakened a large number of Jews to the fact that the president was never resolute in his support of Israel. Once the 2016 elections were over and Obama was free from any personal political considerations he orchestrated the U.N. resolution condemning Israel’s claims to the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
These settlements are built on land willing ceded to Israel after the 1967 Six Day War by Jordanian King Hussein, a moderate, who hoped to put an end to the hostilities that hard line Arab nations had orchestrated against Israel.
The term “settlement,” that is at the heart of the U.N. condemnation is purposely misleading. These developments are cities:
By ordering U.N. Ambassador Samantha Powers to remain silent rather than veto the anti-Israel resolution, Obama has successfully driven a wedge between Israel and many Western nations – including our allies that are members of NATO.
The question of Obama’s loyalty to the intifada was never a question for many of us but it escaped the belief of the majority of Jewish Americans.
Do not believe for a second that Obama isn’t only the tip of the Democrat’s spear that is aimed at the heart of the tiny nation.
The leading candidate to head the Democratic National Committee is Congressman Keith Ellison (MN, 5th District) who has been an outspoken critic of our support of the Middle East’s only democracy. Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). ISNA has admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department has classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”
Ellison’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations are deep and should be deeply troubling to the Jewish people and their friends.
Compare this to the Democrats’ outrageous deception in contending that Donald Trump had ties to the KKK without a single shred of evidence and based solely on an ex-member of the organization voicing his support for Trump.
The Democrats’ embrace of anti-Israel leaders doesn’t stop with Ellison. Newly elected Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer backs Ellison’s bid to become the DNC’s chairman.
Schumer is Jewish but he is a party loyalist first. That is what has allowed him to become the highest-ranking Democrat in our government. His support of Obama’s agenda over the past eight years has been virtually unwavering.
Even his vote against the Iran Nuclear Deal was withheld until Obama was assured that he had enough votes from other senators to free Schumer to cast his “nay” vote charade for the benefit of his Jewish constituents.
Schumer knew this day was coming for many years but he selfishly moved the Obama agenda to advance his career. If he didn’t realize Obama’s intentions, he’s too naïve to be trusted with high office. The evidence was everywhere.
It’s time for the Jewish people to realize that the Democrats are not their friends and they haven’t been for some time.
