You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better examination of the monstrous misstep in policy Pres. Obama started today with his speech. Here’s an excerpt.
Yet we must acknowledge that a strategy based solely upon the narrow pursuit of these interests will not fill an empty stomach or allow someone to speak their mind. Moreover, failure to speak to the broader aspirations of ordinary people will only feed the suspicion that has festered for years that the United States pursues our own interests at their expense. Given that this mistrust runs both ways – as Americans have been seared by hostage taking, violent rhetoric, and terrorist attacks that have killed thousands of our citizens – a failure to change our approach threatens a deepening spiral of division between the United States and Muslim communities.Yep…those Americans are evil. Let me ask you something, what nation in the world does not pursue its own strategic interests as a priority?That’s why, two years ago in Cairo, I began to broaden our engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect (and we can see how that worked out for the Egyptians). I believed then – and I believe now – that we have a stake not just in the stability of nations, but in the self determination of individuals. The status quo is not sustainable. Societies held together by fear and repression may offer the illusion of stability for a time, but they are built upon fault lines that will eventually tear asunder.Actually what I remember about his Cairo speech is that he threw Israel under the bus and downplayed Hamas and Fatah terrorism.
Read the whole thing. And remember this about Palestinians: There are no such things. They’re just adjacent Jew-haters.
And to Pres. Obama: this isn’t about land. It’s about one tiny democracy fighting for its life amidst blood-thirsty, unstable nations who have nothing short of world domination as their goal.
