Today President Obama delivered a speech where he said, "The borders of Israel and Palenstine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states." In other words, the President of the United States told Israel, "Hey, thanks for being our friend and ally for over half a century. Now, bend over because I want to screw you."
Excuse me? Who died and made you world dictator, Mr. President? Israel has been one of only a handful of consistent allies that the United States has had in the past fifty years. Their help in anti-terrorism measures and intelligence has been invaluable. Now the President of the United States is telling them that they have to give up part of their country?! WTF!
I have never liked President Obama. He became one of the two senators from my home state of Illinois by having some of his cronies publicly release sealed court documents from the private divorce case of his opponent less than six months before the Senatorial election. These were documents from a private case. These were documents that not one, but several judges had ruled should remain sealed. Yet, somehow these private and sealed documents were released and made public. Prior to this, Obama was losing in the polls by nearly 80%. Once those documents were made public and it was learned that the Republican candidate had an affair, things changed. Most people in Illinois didn't know who Obama was, but the Republican party was tainted by the sexual scandal and they voted for him because he wasn't involved in a sex scandal. Once those sealed documents became public, I knew Obama wasn't who he was pretending to be. Ever since then, I've seen him as a modern Willie Stark. Nothing he has done since then has changed that opinion.
I've tried to be respectful of President Obama even when he's showed no respect for the Office he holds. I pray for him. However, today's statements have really put me on edge. Our President might be anti-Israel and perhaps anti-Semitic, but many of the people in the United States are not.
