The ultimate betrayal

I am sure that many of you recall Haaretz editor David Landau's request to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that the United States 'rape' Israel. Rice did not succeed in doing so - arguably because President Bush did not let her. But the Obama administration has taken up the quest with full force, and led by the President himself it is seeking to betray America's staunchest ally and deprive her of the means to defend herself. Moshe Dann explains why rape is the perfect description for what the Obama administration is trying to do. But this isn't just any normal rape: It's a rape by a family member, and that's the worst kind of rape.
When rape occurs in a family situation the rapist is often aided and abetted by a family member, often the wife/mother, either to please the rapist, or - in denial - to pretend that it wasn't happening, or carelessness bordering on neglect. That a family member is involved in the rape makes the act even more traumatic, since it involves the ultimate betrayal.

President Obama and his Jewish (and some Israeli) facilitators may believe that what they are doing is for Israel's own good. That might be acceptable if they explained how it works. Would a second Arab Palestinian state run by terrorists enhance Israel's security, promote peace with Israel and in the region, resolve the issues of Jerusalem, and millions of "Palestinian refugees"? Would the Palestinians and Arab states recognize Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state, and acknowledge facts of Jewish and world history? Would the proposed state include Jews with full rights, as Israel includes Arabs with full rights?

Nowhere in Obama's agenda are these questions raised or answered. Nowhere is there a hint of how his plan will be carried out, nor concern for what might happen if things don't go according to his visions. That's understandable, since his policy, like sexual aggression, is single minded.

His Jewish and Israeli enablers, like family members who participate in rapes, no doubt believe that what they are doing is in the name of Love. They might even argue that rape is better than murder, that forcing Israel to surrender and survive, albeit crippled and more vulnerable, is preferable to isolation, attack and invasion.

Raping Israel might be convenient for some, temporarily, even a perverted rescue from more dire consequences that would assuage any feelings of guilt. As long as the victim remains alive and available, however, the rapist will return. There's nothing like conquest to whet the appetite for more.

Finally, the most difficult aspect of rape is when there is compliance, when the victim, because of her fear and desperate need to please and be loved, allows the rape to occur. Many Israeli politicians and pundits believe that Israel's survival depends on American and international good will. They will do anything to achieve it, including denying national interests and integrity. Battered by accusations of causing humiliation, suffering and oppression, "the occupation," they surrender. Hungry for acceptance and temporary security, they acquiesce.
Israelis should stop deluding themselves that America under Obama is our family. It's not. The Obama administration hates the Jewish state with the same passion that the Arabs hate us. Barack Hussein Obama has aimed his entire political career at the destruction of the Jewish state and its replacement with a 'Palestinian' state reichlet. That goes back to his meetings with Edward Said in the 1980's. Hillary Clinton - who made kissy kissy with Soha Arafat moments after the latter claimed that Israel was poisoning Gaza's water with the AIDS virus - is a longstanding enemy of the State of Israel.

People like Dan Kurtzer and Rahm Emmanuel (and Obama's kapos - Bob Wexler and Gary Ackerman) are either hopelessly deluded as to what the consequences of Obama's policies will be, or they have such guilt over the fact that they are Jews - in Kurtzer, Emmanuel and Wexler's cases, 'Orthodox Jews' - with no desire to live in Israel that they would rather see the Jewish state destroyed.

But then this was known to anyone who wanted to open their eyes two years ago.

America is in good hands. What could go wrong?

From what I understand, rape is acceptable in both Muslim and Black communities. Is it any wonder that Obama is in favor of rape.

On what do you base yourself to call Emanuel "Orthodox"?

Israel is being forced to choose between its national interest and its alliance with its long-standing patron. Israel is damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. Battered women often return to the men who beat and abuse them out of a misplaced sense of loyalty and the hope (that is never fulfilled) that they will change. Israel cannot be a normal country if she keeps running off to try to please the Americans who beat and abuse her. Its not a way to live; not for a human being and not for a country. The sooner Israel ends its toxic dependent relationship with Washington, the better off the Jewish State will be.

The denial that is a river in Jerusalem is harming the country and nothing it does to please the US will do any real good.

Carl, I'm not a prophet but I'm willing to bet you it's a front - a bluff.

What kind of Orthodox Jew goes out with a gentile woman and gets her converted just before their marriage?

Oh, that kind of Orthodox Jew!

Everything about him is phony.

rahm may be a memeber of an ortho shul, but so is Jared Kushner,
Rahm's wife was a shiksa he met on a blind date. Orthos don't go on blind dates with gentiles
