Obama comes out all postured over another country’s democratic elections

Obama has become all postured over another country’s democratic elections, threatening Israel because of comments made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the campaign.

What business is it of his to now be commenting on internal politics of another country.

Obama administration officials have been describing a weaker and colder relationship between the United States and the Jewish state in light of Benjamin Netanyahu?s victory in Israel?s March 17 elections.

Netanyahu?s campaign rhetoric ? his statements in the days leading up to the election against a two-state solution and his election day comments on Arab voters?? particularly angered the administration, prompting?officials to say they would?examine its future steps.

On Netanyahu?s personal Facebook account on Tuesday, the prime minister warned Jewish citizens in a video, ?Arab voters are coming in droves to the ballot boxes. Left-wing NGOs are bringing them in buses.?

Those election day comments drew ire at home and abroad, and White House spokesman Josh Earnest called the statements ?deeply concerning? on Wednesday.

You don’t see Obama being deeply concerned over non-democratic nations like Saudi Arabia executing people…or other countries…but a democratic nation holding elections and getting a result you don;t agree with is somehow terrible? What did Obama ever say about Iran’s leader calling for death and destruction of Israel…that’s right, nothing…

?It is divisive and I can tell you that these are views the administration intends to communicate directly to the Israelis.? Earnest said. ?It undermines the values and democratic ideals that have been important to our democracy and an important part of what binds the United States and Israel together.? ?

But more troubling to the White House?were Netanyahu?s statements on a two-state solution, which?the United States has been pursuing for decades in its effort to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

In an interview with the NRG news website on March 16, when asked, ?If you are prime minister there will be no Palestinian state?? Netanyahu?replied, ?Indeed.?

?I think anyone who is going to establish a Palestinian state and to evacuate territory is giving radical Islam a staging ground against the State of Israel,? Netanyahu said.

?We are signaling that if the Israeli government?s position is no longer to pursue a Palestinian state, we?re going to have to broaden the spectrum of options we pursue going forward,? a senior administration official told Politico magazine.

?The positions taken by the prime minister in the last days of the campaign have raised very significant substantive questions that go far beyond just optics,? the official said.

But the administration made clear that its?reconsideration of Israel-US ties is not only due to Netanyahu?s recent comments, but for his actions throughout the years, which officials say prove the prime minister?s opposition to a Palestinian state.

Why would you want a two state solution when it has been offered several times and with generous concessions and rejected out of hand every time, resulting in an Intifada and ongoing war with Israel.

There comes a time when you simply give up on those who don;t want peace and then make them pay for their poor decisions in wanting war.

Obama is being incredibly reckless…even more so as the countries he supports don’t even have rule of law, abuse and kill homosexuals, subjugate women…but the Prime Minister of a sovereign nation who has been democratically elected says something you don’t agree with and you get all postured and threatening?

The man is an idiot…and showing it.

While American?officials have been unequivocal in their stance that Netanyahu?s actions will have consequences, they have been reticent on what those consequences will be.

A senior administration official who spoke to The New York Times on condition of anonymity said that one outcome could be a change in how the relationship between Israel and America is managed. Discourse between the two countries, for instance, would no longer be held between the heads of state directly. Instead, Secretary of State John Kerry and defense officials would act as go-betweens for President Barack Obama and Netanyahu.

?The president is a pretty pragmatic person and if he felt it would be useful, he will certainly engage,? said the official. ?But he?s not going to waste his time.?

Whoopy…Israel knows the UN is against them…they know Obama is against them…they have a zero sum game. Israel learned after World War 2 that the only people who are going to stick up for Jews are themselves…and despite constant war and attacks they are still standing, growing and they really don’t care what Obama has to say about anything.
