Democrats, Don't Let Obama Destroy The One Historic Bi-Partisan Issue

Best of the Tales:  I hope you enjoy this repeat post from the Tales archives [of a few weeks ago] as the Tales and the fetching Mrs. Tales enjoy a mini vacation at the end of the week at some secret location, never to be revealed...unless the Tales decides to post a picture on Face Book.   :-)

Democrats, Don't Let Obama Destroy The One Historic Bi-Partisan Issue:

There has been one bi-partisan issue, and maybe the only issue ever, that politicians from both parties have agreed on for decades.  That issue is total support and friendship for our ally Israel.  Democrats and Republicans alike, while at odds over many other big issues of the day, have showed strong support for the Jewish state, all the time.  


God Bless America!   God Bless Israel!
With the presidency of Barack Obama, that bi-partisan support is being threatened.  I submit it is now up to the Democrats, especially Jewish Democrats, to make sure Israel remains a strong bi-partisan issue.

That's why it was disturbing when you had the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu here in America to speak to the congress of the United States, almost 60 Democrats boycotted the speech.  Imagine that.  Our best ally in the Middle East, and one of our best allies in the world and you had almost 60 Democrats boycott the Prime Minister of that country's speech. 

Then you had the Obama administration clearly trying to influence the electorate in Israel to have them throw out the current prime minister and there was complete silence from the Democrats.  I heard many Republicans speak out against this tactic by the administration, but, and I stand to be corrected, never heard a word about this from one current Democrat congressman.  Would these same Democrats be quiet if George W. Bush was president and tried to interfere in Israel's elections.  I think not, I think they would have been outraged along with Republicans. 

Then after Bibi's landslide victory in Israel, you have Obama throwing a temper tantrum denouncing Bibi by going out of his way to misrepresent what Benjamin Netanyahu said in the heat of the closing days of the election.  

It also took Obama days before he would call up the Prime Minister to "congratulate" [or lecture] him.  PJ Media put it like this:  "Obama has been more kind to the dictators [and enemies of America] of the world than he has to the only Jewish state of Israel.

Then which would be the worst action of all for anyone who supports and loves the state of Israel, we have this from Newsmax:

"The White House on Wednesday [March 18] suggested it could reverse its decades-old policy of using its veto in the United Nations Security Council to protect Israel. It could refuse to veto resolutions related to the Palestinians or introduce a measure of its own, The Wall Street Journal reported."  

"The U.S. could also lend its support to a two-state solution based on Israel's 1967 borders, a senior White House official told The New York Times". 

"We're currently evaluating our approach," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, according to the Journal. "We're not going to prejudge what we would do if there was a U.N. action."

And where the hell are the Democrats who support Israel?  Why aren't they speaking out in favor of Israel?  Where are you Jewish Democrats?   

For one example, you have the Senator from New York, Charles Schumer, who everyone knows is never afraid to get in front of the camera, [in fact if you value your life you better not get between Schumer and a camera] all of a sudden deadly silent in his support of Israel over Obama's actions and threatening actions.  

In a story by John McCormack of the Weekly Standard you have this startling pronouncement by Schumer:  

"Asked Thursday afternoon [March 19] to respond to the administration's anonymous threat, New York Democratic senator Chuck Schumer told THE WEEKLY STANDARD: "I'm not going to comment on that."  

But is there anything Congress could do to ensure the United States continues to back Israel at the UN?  "I'm not gonna comment on that," Schumer replied."

What Chuck Schumer?  You're not going to comment about the possibility, even if only slight, that the US is even considering that they might not back Israel at the United Nations?  Am I the only one startled by this Jewish Democrat who is clearly a supporter of Israel, who is silent about this?

The cat suddenly has Schumer's tongue
In the end, I personally don't think there is anyway Obama would follow through on his contemplative threat against Israel at the U.N. because I consider Obama to be like the bully in the school yard.  And this bully, Obama, knows that Prime Minister Netanyahu will not be afraid to punch back-and the last thing a bully wants to face is someone who stands up to him.  

But even if Democrats know that is true, just the fact that the Obama administration is even contemplating a change in policy towards Israel should be enough for true friends of Israel to stand up and shout out right now and say, "no way Mr. Obama-don't even think about it."

Update-March 24It gets even worse and worse.  The president's chief of staff, Robert McDonough, said to the anti-Israel J-Street group this disgusting untruth greeted with cheers: "An occupation [talking about Israel] that has lasted more than 50 years, must end."

Please tell me one Democrat who has come out to denounce this abhorrent lie about Israel.  More deafening silence. 

I am a Republican and I would love to get more Jews to support the Republican Party, but not this way; not at the expense of Israel being hurt. That is why I am asking Democrats to stop your deafening silence and demand that this president's [and the administration's] childish animosity towards the Prime Minister and the state of Israel stop, immediately.  Let him know either he starts supporting the only democracy in the Middle East, one who is a true loyal friend of America, or he will lose your support.  

Democrats as long as this president's animosity towards the Jewish state of Israel continues, you can't have it both ways.  You must make a choice.  You either support the president or you support Israel.

Democrats, don't let Obama destroy the one historic bi-partisan issue, total support for the Jewish state of Israel.
