This has to be a joke, right? I mean there's just no way on Earth that anyone could possibly think we would fall for this. Right? There can't be! It's just not possible...
U.S. President Barack Obama on Tuesday declared May Jewish American Heritage Month, saying that the "United States would not be the country we know without the achievements of Jewish Americans."
It's Jewish American History Month?! Really? I didn't know...did you?? Did anyone?
Obama called on all Americans to "commemorate the proud heritage of Jewish Americans with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
"Unyielding in the face of hardship and tenacious in following their dreams, Jewish Americans have surmounted the challenges that every immigrant group faces, and have made unparalleled contributions," Obama said. He added, "Jewish American leaders have been essential to all branches and levels of government. Still more Jewish Americans have made selfless sacrifices in our Armed Forces."
Did someone suddenly decide that today is May Fools Day or something? What planet am I on? President Barrack Hussein Obama is declaring that this is Jewish American Heritage Month...on the 13th day of the month...after his administration is off to the one of worst starts vis-a-vis Israeli (read: JEWISH) policy in history? After his flunkies have been sending messages to Jewish lobbyists and Israeli leadership that the United States' Iran policy is mind-bogglingly somehow connected to Palestinian statehood. After his vice president warned Netanyahu that it would be a bad idea for the IDF to take the necessary steps to defend its citizens against Iranian nuclear terror.
After the Democratic primary's Biggest Loser and Obama Secretary of State Hilary Clinton decided that it would be a wise decision during the worst American economic disaster in decades to dump $900 million from the sky into Gaza with the naive assumption that it would never make it into the hands of Hamas baby-killers. After he has done nothing for Israel (the JEWISH STATE) except for prance around the world in photo-op after photo-op apologizing for the West's foreign policy of the past 100 years (READ: SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL THE JEWISH STATE). After he teased us by letting us think the US and A would actually participate in the Durban 2, Achmedinejad-fest. He thinks THIS is the answer?
Obama said that Jewish American community has set an example for all Americans. "They have demonstrated that Americans can choose to maintain cultural traditions while honoring the principles and beliefs that bind them together as American," said Obama. "Jewish American history demonstrates how America's diversity enriches and strengthens us all."
What what what WHAT?!?!
Am I supposed to forget that even as he was just a Democratic longshot back in the good old days of December/2007 it was clear he would be no good for the state of the Jews? It's so obvious that Obama has stabbed his Jewish supporters in the back that even former Obama cheerleader Shmuel Rosner (who was the target of the article I wrote in 2007), had this to say in a recent post of Rosner's Domain:
3. Generally speaking, what we see here is a panel worried about future policies of an administration that hasn't yet clarified its positions.
4. Gates is getting higher marks than those he got three months ago mostly because the panel realized that at this point in time he is the only member of the administration who actually knows what he's doing.
Even Rosner realizes that only member of this administration that has any idea what is flying in the world is Bush holdover, Secretary of Defense Gates. It's enough to make your head spin.
What say the 77% of Jews who voted for Obama now? Are they realizing that maybe they made the wrong choice in voting the Party line instead of for a true friend of Israel and the Jews like McCain? Or Obama's predecessor President Bush - the man who ACTUALLY conceived of a Jewish Heritage Month?
More likely these people are fooled by this embarrassing attempt to distract us from the facts.
People like Jewish Uncle Tom, "Obama's Rabbi" David Saperstein who in an interview with Haaretz:
...stressed the importance of the connection between U.S. Jews and Israel, the rabbi said he didn't feel support for the country necessarily meant blanket approval of its actions.
"If I see my brother or sister doing something that I believe is truly harmful to them - I'm going to say something even if they are adults that make their own decisions," he said.
Well that's great rabbi...but if you have an argument with your brother or sister - do you do it in public? And when you say "brother" and "sister" is it really your place to criticize your sibling if you've been estranged from them for the majority of your life (if not the entirety of it)?
"You don't really show your love to someone by remaining silent when they're doing something counterproductive or might harm someone else - if you will say that in order to be supporter of Israel you must agree with all its policies - you're going to alienate millions of people who think of themselves as active Israel supporters."
Counterproductive...? Like what?
Saperstein added that he feels "it's far more effective when people who disagree with settlement policies, disagree with government positions on the right of the reform and conservative Jews, join together to support AIPAC for Israel."
Oh of course, those evil evildoers the settlers. So even the token Jew in Obama's religious council...is still going to be parroting the Party line that the SETTLEMENT policy is the reason why we have a problem in the Middle East. Well, is there anything that Obama's vision of the ideal Jew IS in favor of?
"The direction seems quite clear not just in Jewish leadership with more and more rabbis officiating it, but the Jewish community supporting overwhelmingly the full equality for gays and lesbians."
Right. The "Jewish community" is "overwhelmingly" supportive of "full equality" for gays and lesbians. I guess that's code words for gay marriage. Now I'm not sure who Saperstein thinks he's speaking for when he says that, but I can tell you that the OVERWHELMING majority of Orthodox and especially Hasidic Jews do not share this view. Since as we explored also in 2007, within a few generations the only Jews left in America will likely be exclusively of the Orthodox variety, it is safe to say that Rabbi Saperstein, like fellow sellouts Sarah Silverman and Jon Stewart does not speak for all of us.
I'm sure the Sapersteins, Silvermans and Leibovitzes of the world will all be very excited by Obama's declaration. But not the rest of us. We know what this is really about. In the end, our "friend" in the White House is laying a foundation to demand from Netanyahu that Israel cave into Fatah and Hamas terrorists and give up land in the West Bank (up to and including parts of the Israeli/Jewish capital of Jerusalem), the Golan Heights and maybe just maybe give into some Palestinian "right of return" as well. Not to mention that he sits on the sidelines while Iran becomes a nuclear power...
No...those of us who know this game will not be bought by these hollow words so easily. You can keep your Jewish American Heritage declarations...we know what's coming. We knew it was coming. And we won't be fooled.
Well...the other 23% of us at least.
