Obama endangers Israel as Egyptian election results loom

GIVAT SHMUEL, Israel, May 27, 2014 — Every time Barack Obama makes the wrong decision, everyone but him suffers.

When he rammed ObamaCare down the throats of the American people, millions of citizens lost their healthcare, while Obama continues to be looked after by an elite medical staff.

When he ignored intelligence suggesting an attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi, it was four diplomats who lost their lives; Obama remains surrounded by his Secret Service agents.

Israel has been a particularly important target of Obama’s destructive policies.

When he authorized John Kerry to make an agreement with the radical Islamic regime in Iran without guarantees to curb their nuclear program, he knew it would be Israel that would pay the price. Israel will send her sons and daughters to the front lines against the genocidal Iranians while he is busy decorating a wing of his presidential library.

When Obama pressures Israel to enter into an agreement with the Palestinian Authority — even though the PA threw parties for released murderers at their chairman’s palace and courts the terrorist group Hamas — he knows the Israeli public will be left to deal with “anti-apartheid,” boycott and sanction movements abroad while facing another bloody intifada at home, while he hits the links at Augusta.

Now, with elections taking place in Egypt, Obama has turned the future Egyptian government against Israel, while he sits safe more than 6,000 miles away.

It is now virtually guaranteed that Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will be elected as the next leader of Egypt. While Israel has no illusions about al-Sisi’s love for the Jewish State, it is widely believed that he is a far more better alternative to a Brotherhood-run government.

In the Jerusalem Post on Friday, Zvi Mazel pointed out that, “the former general is accused of planning to set up a new military dictatorship, and for some he is a representative of the old elites of the Mubarak era. Yet for most he is the man of the hour, uniquely qualified to steer Egypt through the harsh reforms necessary for its economic recovery.”

For Israel, the comparison to Mubarak is vital. Under Mubarak, Egypt and Israel maintained a frigid yet steadfast peace accord. It would not be overly-optimistic to assume al-Sisi would be in favor of similar policies regarding the Jewish State. In fact, according to the Post report, al-Sisi has made comments to this effect, telling Reuters on May 15, “our relationship with Israel and the peace treaty had been stable for more than 30 years, and has faced a lot of challenges – yet it remained stable. We respected it, and we will respect it.”

However, it seems that the Israel-hating academics Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, who insist that Israel’s relationship with America is the cause of many of America’s problems abroad, have it backwards. If Obama, seen by Egypt as an ally of Israel, had the courage to speak out against the extremist ideology of the Brotherhood as he did against Mubarak, the U.S. and Israel might find a crucial strategic ally in a region that is being plunged deeper and deeper into the Sharia-ruled dark ages by the day.

Instead, Mazel points out that, “Sisi does not hesitate to express his bitterness toward the US and the EU, which have frozen the delivery of weapons and equipment needed to fight terror. Time and again, he has called upon them to reconsider and help him defeat their common enemy, radical Islam. He is not alone in wondering why US President Barack Obama so stubbornly refuses to budge on that issue.”

No one believes that al-Sisi’s army can be absolutely trusted, but they certainly are a safer bet then the radical Muslim rebels in Syria and Libya, whom this Administration armed to the teeth.

Thanks to Obama’s unwavering dedication to the Muslim Brotherhood, Mazel explains, “Sisi expresses his thanks to Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States … and compares their help to the famed Marshall Plan.”

This is what in basketball terms is known as a four-point turn-around. Not only does Israel suffer thanks to Obama’s inane-bordering-on-insane policies, but one of its greatest enemies, Saudi Arabia, gets to strengthen its ties with the new Egypt.

This is the same Saudi regime that forced Delta Airlines to comply with their blatantly anti-Semitic policy to refuse Jews and holders of Israeli passports from traveling to their country. This is the same Saudi government of which, in his brilliant book “The Arab Lobby”, Mitchell Bard writes, “within days of Barack Obama’s inauguration … Prince Turki al-Faisal-a member of the royal family, a former Saudi intelligence chief and former ambassador to the United States-warned, ‘unless the new US administration takes forceful steps to prevent any further suffering and slaughter of Palestinians, the peace process, the US-Saudi relationship and the stability of the region are at risk.'”

This is the same Saudi Arabia that Bard describes as “active sponsors of international terrorism, the main exporters of radical Islamic and rulers of one of the world’s most intolerant societies.”

If Obama continues his approach to Egypt and the Middle East, the al-Sisi government will become completely reliant on Saudi Arabian weapons and money. In turn, any hopes of a strong US-Israel-Egypt alliance will be dashed.

It is difficult to imagine that Obama can still find ways to harm Israel, but the president never ceases to amaze in this regard. For once, if al-Sisi is named the new leader of Egypt, Obama should tune out the Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), tune out the radically liberal people he surrounds himself with, tune out his incompetent secretary of state, and tune out the boisterous anti-Israel voices in his own head and take an action that can have a positive impact on the Middle East and the world, even if it doesn’t directly affect him as he is off fundraising with the DCCC.

That’s Right I Said It!

    Not sure what Pres. O’s motivation to despise Israel is, but his actions are that of a frenemy.

    So sorry…

  • This is no big surprise to anyone with half a clue.
    Theres numerous components of the man’s past that indicate he couldn’t care less about radical Islam but feels more a threat from Coptic and other Christians in the US or abroad who’ve never lifted a finger to anyone.
    He does nothing about the horrors these theocratic dicative leaders commit upon their own citizens.
    He has given Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan the means to return to or maintain their oppressive rule to its people and be an even greater threat to global security.
    He has allowed Putin to continue funding and abetting those nations that wish to commit genocide of infidels.
    In his world wide apology speech from Cairo he allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to sit up front and center after being banned from egyptian soil for its role in Anwar Sadat’s assassination.
    Had no objection to the 2012 DNC changing of its platform that left out God and Jerusalem.
    Israelis don’t like him.

    I seriously believe that Obama thinks that his degeneration and diminishing of Israel will foster a better relationship with Middle Eastern nations and calm the radicals.

    I didn’t realize there were still people around writing this schiesse. I thought they went away when the Iraq war did about 10 years ago?

    Israel owns the USA. Al-Sisi is Israel’s boy in Egypt.

    Everything in the article is baloney.
