Samantha Power's dream come true?Samantha Power, formerly a professor at Harvard, is now the director of multilateral affairs at the National Security Council. She was forced to resign from the Obama campaign after the video I am about to show you came to light, but after Obama was elected, she was given a position in the White House anyway.
Let's go to the videotape and see why Power left the Obama campaign.
There's much more about this videotape here.
Samantha Power's dream of American forces invading Israel may be about to come true (via Free Republic).
The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that the Obama administration is supporting the implementation of a United Nations doctrine that would approve military action in order to prevent genocide. While not legally required to act, the countries supporting the doctrine (including the U.S., China, and Russia) have all expressed the political will to act in the case of genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing, or crimes against humanity.What could go wrong?
While sounding well intentioned, I fear that the Obama administration and every Israel-hating member of the United Nations will use this doctrine as a weapon against Israel.
So here we have a high ranking member of the Obama administration who believes that “major human rights abuses” are occurring in Israel and that in order to correct that situation, military aid to Israel should cease. Instead, this high ranking government official is advising the President that US taxpayer dollars should be used to invest in “Palestine” and to sustain a military presence in Israel in order to impose her ideology on a US ally.
Furthermore, the U.S. is now on board with a UN doctrine that would support military intervention in order to prevent human rights abuses. This is a doctrine that would be enforced by an anti-Semitic international peace-keeping organization that has passed innumerable resolutions condemning Israel yet ignored human rights violations the world over (not to mention the human rights violators that sit on the Security Council and Human Rights Council that will be making these determinations).
