Jerusalem, Israel — June 4, 2015 … US President Obama appeared in a prime-time interview on Israel’s Channel 2 TV, accusing Netanyahu’s government of acting too often out of fear of terrorism.
“I think Prime Minister Netanyahu is somebody who’s predisposed to think of security first; to think perhaps that peace is naive; to see the worst possibilities as opposed to the best possibilities in Arab partners or Palestinian partners,” Obama said. “And so I do think that, right now, those politics and those fears are driving the government’s response.”
As Obama was bashing Netanyahu for focusing on Israel’s security, Palestinian terror rockets from Gaza were slamming Israel.
At least 6 rockets were fired this week at Israeli cities and towns by Islamic Jihad and Hamas. Though no deaths were reported, hundreds of thousands of Israelis were forced into bomb shelters with schools being closed in southern Israel.
One Israeli city, Sderot, is less than 2 kilometers from the Gaza Strip.
It first came under Palestinian rocket fire in 2001. Hamas would time the rockets to hit the school run.
Between April 2001 and December 2008, more than 1,000 alarms were sounded in or near Sderot. By then, according to NATAL, the Israel Trauma Center for Victims of Terror and War, between 75 percent and 94 percent of Sderot children ages 4 to 18 were exhibiting symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
What if these terror rockets were exploding on the White House lawn? Would Obama still be speaking in the same callous manner?
President Obama lives in a world totally disconnected from reality. He has ignored Christians being beheaded by ISIS, he bashes every policeman in the US, he has created more racial tension and disconnect that any American President, he ignores Russia’s Putin grabbing the Ukraine, he’s out to lunch as the Chinese build islands in the South China Sea.
If anyone has lost credibility on the global stage it is Barack Obama who is allowing Iran to build a nuclear weapon. Obama has embarassed each and every American who stands for democracy and freedom. Obama has alienated almost every world leader from the UK, France and Germany to Saudi Arabia, India and Jordan.
Obama has made the US irrelevant as other world powers now rush to confront a global, Islamic ISIS threat, Iranian nuclear terrorism and as Israeli children run to take cover in bomb shelters.
