A perfect match?

When I saw this article in my email, I assumed it was about how Samantha Power, the radical libtard whom President Hussein Obama named US Ambassador to the United Nations this week, was a perfect match for the other radical libtards in the Obama White House. I was wrong. This article by Melanie Phillips is about how Power is a perfect match for the fascist regimes who dominate the United Nations.
No, she was talking about invading Israel to prevent a genocide, or major human rights abuses, (her language wasn’t clear, but the point is the same), against the Palestinians -- something which, in any rational universe, not only could not possibly be laid at Israel’s door but also held out the possibility that Israel might commit atrocities against people who themselves make Israel the victim of precisely such atrocities (and indeed, commit them regularly against other Palestinians).
She also suggested that defending Israel was not a cause that should be dear to all Americans and indeed all decent people everywhere, nor that the great majority of Americans do indeed thus support Israel, but that the only people who might be alienated by invading Israel would be American Jews who exercised tremendous political and financial power over American politics. 
Subsequently she said of these comments that she couldn’t remember what she had said and didn’t understand what she had meant.
Maybe a clue lies in what she told the New Statesman during Obama’s first presidential campaign:
'So much of it is about: "Is he going to be good for the Jews?" ' 
Or when she bemoaned the tendency of US policymakers 
‘to defer reflexively to Israeli security assessments, and to replicate Israeli tactics…’
Failing to understand herself seems to be a persistent problem beyond this amnesia about her own bigotry.
Read the whole thing. She will indeed fit right in at the UN. In fact, she'd fit in even better at the 'human rights council.'

What could go wrong?

Samantha Power is a revolting malcontent who will fit right in with the evil malcontents at the Useless Nations (UN). In some ways, this promotion may be good, because at least she won't be as close to the president, advising him on key issues. And the UN is useless, anyway...
