Obama's Perfidy On Israel
My Obama-supporting morning paper had on its front page an Associated Press (AP) story that President Obama had, in announcing that the USA wanted Israel to return to it’s 1967 borders, that he was really only restating what had been US policy all along. People like me, who pay attention to these things, have long known of the anti-Israel bias and left-wing bias of the AP, but I still gasped at this lie. More pro-Obama spin.
With what is happening now in the Middle East, a return to those borders means death to Israel. Egypt is making many noises about renouncing it’s treaty with Israel, the Muslim Brotherhood is calling the shots all along the African rim, and Iran is close to making good on its threats to vaporize all Jews.
These are the borders that Obama was proposing:
Notice that Gaza was under Egypt's control, the West Bank was under Jordan's control, and the Golan Heights were controlled by Syria. At some points Israel is only 9 miles wide.
Below are Israel's borders after they won the 1968 war resulting from combined attacks by Egypt,Iraq, Syria and Jordan on Israel. Israel hung on to Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan Heights, territories won by blood, and providing borders that have some chance of being defended. The Sinai desert was ceded back to Egypt by Israel when the two countries later signed a peace treaty.
It is clear that Obama regards Israel as a colonial power like Great Britain and despises them both. To understand Obama's obsession, read Dinesh D'Souza's book, "The Roots of Obama's Rage". We should not allow his obsession to destroy our only ally and the only real democracy in the area.
