Palin rips Obama on Israel

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin ripped the Obama administration in a prepared statement, contrasting its policy of 'engaging' with enemies to its tough talk to guess which ally (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
In the midst of all this embracing of enemies, where does the Obama Administration choose to escalate a minor incident into a major diplomatic confrontation? With Iran, Cuba, Sudan, North Korea or Burma? No. With our treasured ally, Israel.

Last October, Secretary of State Clinton recognized Israel's desire for peace in the Middle East and praised Israel's “unprecedented” concessions for agreeing to halt settlement construction in the West Bank, a concession that did NOT include halting construction of apartments for Jews in Jerusalem. Even last week after planned construction was announced, Vice President Biden still expressed “appreciation” for the “significant” steps taken by the Israeli government to address this minor issue. Now, however, we see the Obama Administration has decided to escalate, make unilateral demands of Israel, and threaten the very foundation of the US-Israel relationship. This is quickly leading to the worst crisis in US-Israel relations in decades, and yet this did not have to happen. More importantly, it needs to stop before it spirals out of control. Vice President Biden should rein in the overheated Obama Administration rhetoric and chill the political spin masters' fire as they visit the Sunday media shows to criticize Israel.

Once again, the Obama Administration is missing the boat on a very, very important issue. They need to go back to the basics and acknowledge Palestinian leaders have not progressed any peace process since President Obama was elected. As Israel makes concessions (and is still criticized by the Obama Administration), Arab leaders are just sitting back waiting for the White House to further pressure Israel. The Obama Administration needs to open its eyes and recognize that it is only Iran and her terrorist allies that benefit from this manufactured Israeli controversy.
Read the whole thing.

I wonder where she got the idea of having Biden rein in Obama. I don't believe anyone is capable of reining in Obama (in fact, his dogmatism is one of his weakest points). And despite all the rhetoric over the last week about the poor, injured Joe Biden, I don't have the impression that the White House takes him all that seriously.

The American electorate is the only entity capable of reining Obama in. And it won't have another shot at doing that until November.

But man did it feel good to hear Sarah Palin call us a 'treasured ally.'

Hear, hear!

"[Obama's] dogmatism is one of his weakest points...

And boy is it scary dangerous how much this press-annointed messiah believes his dogmatic status is founded in reality. So much so that when someone tells him "no," it's akin to throwing down the gauntlet in a personal insult.

Nice how Sarah Palin put the godling in his place:

The godling: Sh'ma Israe--

Palin: Not!!

Nice blog.

Obama has been waiting for the opportunity to throw Israel under the bus. He thought he had it with the Jerusalem settlements. But all he's done is show petulance, disdain for the truth and faithfulness to his anti-Israel roots.

G-d help America.
