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.

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).
What could go wrong?

This UN doctrine would, in this case, not be implemented in order to "prevent genocide", but be enacted to enable genocide - against the Jews of Israel, while doing nothing at all to dismember Arab terror groups.

This is a very frightening prospect.

I would hope that US forces, quite a few who have trained with the IDF and who have moral fortitude, if called to such action, would stand shoulder-to-shoulder and disobey orders.

Power is definitely the Power behind the throne when it comes to Obama's policies on the ME conflict. I don't think he's stupid enough to buy into her "genocide" argument but I think he's completely sold on the idea of eventually stationing a US-led, UN-sanctioned, multi-national force in J&S (as well as in Jerusalem) to protect the Palestinians as they move toward sovereignty (God forbid).

Note that such an arrangement is in complete harmony with Netanyahu's demand for a demilitarized Palestinian state "guaranteed" by the international community.

I'm not frightened. Israel has means of self defense not available to the Jewish people when Rome was around. Any enemy that wants to wipe out the Jewish State will find their existence terminated. Now this new fact of Jewish power is still not grasped by the world but it exists and the greatest secret of it is the unity of the Jewish people in Israel. Nothing the Samantha Powers of the world can do will undermine it.

Its a dream that will never come true.

Strangely, the threat of nuclear war is not specifically included. So any attempt to use this new power after Iran sets off it's first nuclear test would result in years of wrangling about what the new rules were...

Yet they manage to describe Israels smoke-generating phosphorus shells as "War Crimes". Well, it's a good thing anti-Semitism is dead and gone!

The World Wars of the 20th century were, in part, set off by arrangements of treaties designed to automatically trigger military action in the hope that these deterrents would keep the peace.

So the next bunch of treaties to start a major world war may come directly from the UN!
