Hezbullah could care less about Ramat Shlomo

Michael Totten reports that the 'resistance bloc;' Hamas, Hezbullah, Syria and Iran, will continue to blame the US and Israel for all that goes wrong in the World no matter what the US and Israel do. Trying to 'engage' them, says Totten, is useless.
Hezbollah’s reaction to Israel’s plan to build 1,600 apartments in a Jewish neighborhood in East Jerusalem might help President Barack Obama understand something that has so far eluded him: the Syrian-Iranian-Hamas-Hezbollah resistance bloc will not allow him to appease it.

“The scheme is yet another part of a Judaization campaign,” Hezbollah said in a statement quoted by the Tehran Times, “that targets the holy city of al-Quds [Jerusalem] and a provocation of Muslim feeling.” If Obama expected a little appreciation from Israel’s enemies for making the same point with more diplomatic finesse, he was mistaken. “The Zionist plan to construct hundreds of homes in al-Quds,” Hezbollah continued, “truly shows American cover to it.”

So not only is Obama denied credit for standing up to Israel’s government, he is accused of doing precisely the opposite.

Anti-Americanism is ideological oxygen for partisans of the resistance bloc. They will no sooner let it go than they will stop breathing. Their entire worldview and political program would turn to ashes without it, much as Fidel Castro’s would without socialism. When the United States doesn’t follow the script, they just lie.

If we extend a hand in friendship, they’ll bite it and try to chew off a finger. If we take their side once in a while to appear evenhanded, they’ll twist the truth until it looks like a sinister plot, then they’ll bite us again.
Read the whole thing. It will make you wonder, again, why the Obama administration wants to send an ambassador to Syria.

The radicals in the Arab World and the Iranians are unimpressed by the US beating up on Israel - it only confirms for them the Great Satan has found the Little Satan tiresome and is on the run. That's why Hezbollah and the mullahs are slapping away both American hostility towards Israel and offers of engagement. No matter what the US does about Israel, it will not make them change their view about America. They are content to let the Obami indulge their pleasant daydream.

Obama is no Hizbollah/Iran Dhimmi, but a Saudi slave

Yikes! That picture of the Hezbollah guy: looks like he is about to swallow Ahmadi, who is grinning nervously.

Is this particular tail wagging that specific dog?
