Credit Where Credit Is Due

Barack Obama stuck his (our) finger in the eye of Israel and the Jewish mob that supports it in the U.S. That was an action that was long, long overdue, and it took some courage even though it was exactly the right thing to do.

Nobody in their right mind would argue against the fact that there has to be a two state solution to the endless Israeli and Palestine battle. But nobody there seems to want to agree to that fact.

Outsiders, i.e., U.S., UN, etc, etc, have been proposing solution that were fair and humane for at least fifty years. In the beginning, that little jerk Arafat, would blow up the proposed agreements. Lately, it has been the Israelis that blow them up.

So what Obama said yesterday is, basically this, everybody is tired of screwing around with you on this incredibly important action, so here is what you are going to do. Period.

Wow! That blew the Israelis away! Nobody has ever talked to them like that before. They have always been able to scupper a peace settlement and still get enormous sums of money from us. Now Obama has said "Put up or shut up".

Make no mistake about two things. 1) Israel is our most important ally in a part of the world where a lot of people really do hate us. And Israel has nuclear bombs and jets capable of delivering them to Iran, which is making increasingly bellicose threats against Israel.

2) The treatment of the Palestine people by Israel is a real source of hatred against the West throughout the Arab world. It fuels the hatred preached by the worst of Islam preachers. It truly is in our best interests to end the problem.

So here are my three cheers for Barack Obama for standing up to Israel and the Jewish mob.

Now, if only he could find the courage to stand up to Congress!!
