Israel is our ally. The prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, spoke to a joint session of congress on Tuesday. It isn’t like this happens all the time. Netanyahu doesn’t winter in Boca, he hasn’t been here in almost 4 years.
Inexplicably, no member of the Obama Administration will attend the speech, including our own ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro. Shamefully, numerous Democrat representatives and senators are boycotting the speech.
Here is yet another example of the intolerant left. If something is going to be said that they don’t like, they stick their fingers in their ears, hum and then just walk away.
Why? Because they are wrong, they know it, and there is no defending their position.
Liberals are making this issue – the relationship with our ally, Israel – a political one. Then, they are turning around, pointing fingers and saying that everyone else is playing politics.
We have lost all political debate. It is the liberal way or the highway. If anyone disagrees, liberals shout ugly names then leave.
Is this juvenile behavior beginning to get one anyone else’s nerves yet?
Or is it just me?
Do you remember my very first article that was published on this website 7 months ago?
Onan Coca (Eagle Rising’s Editor) put in a picture of Obama and Big Bird (genius) to help us visualize Obama’s idiotic, Sesame Street notions of the world.
I can’t help but think of that article as I have read and watched the news for the past few weeks.
Has Obama learned nothing from his foreign policy failures in Syria, Egypt, Russia and Yemen? Does he still actually believe that we can negotiate with Iran’s kind of evil and actually win? Or does he even want to win?
I wrote in the fall about a cartoon with John Kerry, Benjamin Netanyahu and a terrorist. The terrorists “negotiating” demand was “death to all Israel.” Kerry turns to Netanyahu and says, “Can’t you just meet them in the middle?”
We are still in the exact same place as we were then. This administration, inexplicably, sides with terrorists. Obama seems to feel that terrorists have a legitimate beef and, like on Sesame Street, if we would just listen, communicate and discuss, we could work something out.
They still believe that, even when the terrorists say, “Death to all America.”
