post from email from Chuck April 3.
[Remember the Islamic belief about their "12th." They have to destroy Israel and the United States first! Well...what is happening? From where I sit, it appears that the puppet is also going to help destroy Israel. That should tell you all that you need to know. That should answer all your questions about who this man REALLY is. If congress was so opposed to the puppet siding against Israel and siding with the enemy instead, then it seems like congress would have begun an impeachment trail already, after all, the Constitution says that if a president of the United States sides with its enemies then he is "unfit" to be an American president and should be impeached immediately. What's wrong with this picture? Are the families of congress being threatened? Why aren't they taking the action required to protect our country? Revolution anyone?]
The Lord† speaking to Abraham, the father of Israel— …And I will bless those who bless you and the one who curses you I will curse… (Genesis 12:3). The U.S. will be in serious trouble if it continues down this track.
There is an Israeli joke that when someone sneezes in the Golan someone in Jerusalem says “Gesundheit.” As a small sovereign state Israel is (more so than larger states) especially susceptible to trends in the international community. Even large states like South Africa cannot ignore the will of the international community, when the community is largely united against its actions. Israel’s international position has entered the danger zone because operationally it has lost the steady and predictable support of the United States and Europe. A recent example of this new, disturbing state of affairs came when Europe voted to condemn Israeli actions at the Security Council and the United States publicly agreed with the anti-Israel sentiment while casting a veto.
Since that ominous vote, Israel’s former allies have joined the United States in launching a new international order that threatens Israel’s sovereignty to determine its security and national needs. In the last few weeks the President of the United States has made it abundantly clear that a peace deal with the Palestinians continues to be a top priority and that Israel is the sole impediment to a deal. Meanwhile, the office of the United Nation’s Secretary General has publicly referred to Jerusalem as occupied territory.
To understand what is likely to happen, given this mindset and other international developments one must appreciate the monumental political shifts that are occurring in the political community. The intervention in Libya, led by Israel’s former allies, is being justified as necessary because of largely unsubstantiated human rights violations that may have happened without a No Fly Zone and the support of the anti-Israel Arab League. The other day the Arab League participated in London as a full-fledged partner of the United states, Britain, etc. in one the largest international meetings in decades. The President of the United States and the Secretary of State continuously base the justification for their military action on the support of the thugs in the Arab League. This is an ominous development.
The legitimization of this new international order that is prepared to use military force to force its will can and probably will be directed against Israel. Every member of the coalition believes that Israel is a serial and daily abuser of the human rights of the Palestinians. And unlike their cautious reactions to the murder of innocents in Arab/Moslem states—Syria, Bahrain, Iran, etc.—this new coalition of Israel’s former allies is not reticent about voicing their differences with Israel and with issuing threats to change, what they consider to be an unacceptable situation.
Between now and the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in September look for stepped up pressure on Israel to accede to all the demands of Palestinians. Israel will be alone as the UK, France, Germany, and the United States do the dirty work for Abbas and Hamas. It is illuminating that this coalition is not deterred that the rebels in Libya have Al-Qaeda connections. What Israel wants and needs will be irrelevant (even small wishes such as acknowledging Israel as a Jewish State will continue to be off the table.) Israel’s security will supposedly be guaranteed by some NATO force.
This gang up against Israel is attractive to the leaders of the West because they believe it is justified and they believe it will help counter opposition to their fighting Moslems in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya. None of the Palestinian demands against Israel will be seen as illegitimate. Which will include forcing Israel to recognize and deal with Hamas and to come to terms with some form of division of Jerusalem, which will likely lead to a large United Nations presence in the Old City. If Israel opposes this initiative look for the West to lead in the recognition of a Palestinian State at the UN in September.
What Should Israel Do? Trying to compromise with the Palestinians has failed and will continue to fail given the understandable belief among the Palestinians that they are far stronger than Israel in the international community. Trying to mollify the puppet and Clinton has failed and will continue to fail. Israel’s friends in Congress cannot change the puppet’s course without grassroots political support. Leading Democrats who interceded on Israel’s behalf in the campaign to get a veto in the Security Council resolution condemning Israel said they were shocked by the hostility of the administration toward Israel (they did not know if a veto would be cast until it actually happened) and one said that if the puppet is reelected Israel will be in serious trouble.
Israel needs to implement a strategy of standing up to the puppet administration, it needs to engage the American public that is strongly pro-Israel and is not enthusiastic about the new interventionist puppet doctrine. With less than 50% of Americans supporting action in Libya against Qaddafi you can be certain that a large majority can be counted on to oppose the puppet’s manhandling of Israel, but Israel needs to lead the charge by standing up for itself. While the puppet feels he can bring peace by placating radical Islam, the American people believe that we are at war with radical Islam. For decades they were certain that Israel was a valuable ally in this war. Turning the defense of Israel (in the context of being important to American security) into a potent political force in the United States is possible and must be undertaken immediately. If successful, this campaign can become a political force that will modify the puppet’s behavior toward Israel and turn into a potent political force in the 2012 election. At this time, the puppet feels that he will pay no political price for siding with America’s Islamic enemies.
Continuing along the current course will be a disaster for the State of Israel. A change of course needs to happen very soon.

Chuck, I am in total agreement with the author. Unfortunately, as a nation, we have become so disengaged the vast majority of us do not even see it for what it is. The “Helen Thomas” episode where our (supposed) “Free Media” was largely invisible and/or impotent serves as a very good example of our own ignorance of history and potential for even greater negative geo-political scenarios exploding across the globe. What troubles me is that I am normally a half-full kind of guy, and this article makes me feel (bad choice of word) half-empty. I seriously wonder where our “exceptionalism” has gone today. What do you think…just a tidbit of strategic leadership? Thanks, Jim
