Obama's Sister Souljah moment

Michael Fenenbock explains that a Sister Souljah moment occurs when a politician loudly rebukes an ally to show that they are not beholden to that ally. That certainly sounds like what President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton did to Israel last week. Fenenbock says we have to fight back.
The political truth is that the Obama Administration will get away with their “hammer the Jews” strategy unless there is a political price to pay in the 2010 American elections.

Which brings us to an interesting juncture. A crossroads has been reached. Will the two-state train continue to roar down the track or can it be derailed?

To fully comprehend the circumstance we must take into account an important development. Right now the Obama Administration is in a politically weakened condition.


For President Obama the 2010 midterm election is a looming disaster.

There is organized, determined opposition to the president and his policies. His opposition is almost universally supportive of Israel. His antipathy toward the Jewish state is not shared. “Hammer the Jews” is not a consensus policy in America. A two-state solution is not a foregone conclusion.

Many who oppose the Administration see an opportunity to make their own point about a myopic Obama foreign policy that coddles terrorists at home, bows to the Saudi king abroad, offers public apologies to Islam, and twists the arm of its allies.

The president is vulnerable. The opposition intends to cause damage. Real damage. Political damage. The kind they pay attention to.

President Obama’s political advisors have embraced this “Sister Souljah moment.” They have chosen Jerusalem as the ground for their big fight.

The ball is now in our court.

We should take up the challenge.

Amen. The Jews did not submit to Vespasian and Titus and to Hadrian. They will not submit to Obumbler.

Bring it on!
