Check out my latest piece on Obama’s betrayal of Israel:

Libels Israel, MSM Continues to Lie, Snooze

Here’s an excerpt:

“The announcement of the settlements on the very day that the vice
president was there was insulting,” said Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton. Obama adviser David Axelrod also said: “This was an affront, it was an insult, but
most importantly, it undermined this very fragile effort to bring peace
to that region. For this announcement to come at that time was very,
very destructive.”

Neither Clinton nor Axelrod mentioned anything about the honoring of
the jihad terrorist being insulting. And it will still take place, just a
week late. Yet Obama is pressuring Israel, not the Palestinians. Jews
living in their holiest city is unacceptable, but senior Palestinian
Authority officials joining the Fatah youth movement in a “popular
inauguration” ceremony for a square named for a terrorist is just fine.
The stalkers of the Jews are no hindrance to peace.

What is insulting is America’s abandonment of our most loyal and
trusted ally in a region that can only be described as a hot mess, full
of backward, oppressive, and brutal hellholes — save for Israel.


America is profoundly pro-Israel; yet Barack Obama is taking on our
best friend and most strategic ally in the Middle East and creating an
environment, a free zone, for rampant anti-Semitism.

It is no coincidence that as all this unfolded, Palestinian Arabs
were rioting every day in Jerusalem and elsewhere, because of their
false charge that Israel is trying to destroy Islamic holy sites. And
instead of working to calm the situation, the “moderate” Palestinian
Authority is trying to make things worse by fabricating yet another
libel against the Jews: now they’re saying that Israel tried to burn
down Al-Aqsa Mosque in 1969.


This is eerily reminiscent of many of the blood libels spread by
Muslim leaders against the Jews throughout history, specifically the
ones that the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, spread in the
Muslim world before he co-conspired
with Hitler
to exterminate the Jews during the Holocaust.

On April 4, 1920, there was carnage in Jerusalem. Muslims spent four
days massacring Jews and burning down buildings in the Jewish quarter.
The future Mufti was arrested and charged with incitement to violence.
Historian Maurice Pearlman in his 1947 book The Mufti of Jerusalem
explains that the riots were touched off by al-Husseini’s “inflammatory
articles in the newspaper, Suriyahal Janubiyah.” Pearlman
adds: “In the weeks preceding the attack faked pictures had been
disseminated among the Arabs showing the Mosque Omar in ruins. The
caption beneath declared that it had been destroyed by Jewish infidels
who were now seeking to build on its site the Jewish Temple.”

Fast forward to today, and the situation is eerily similar. According
to Palestinian Media Watch, “a non-Jewish Australian started a fire in
the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Aug. 21, 1969. The fire was extinguished and the
damage was repaired. More than ten years ago the Palestinian Authority
initiated the lie that Israel was involved in the arson or that it was a
Jew who started the fire with the Israeli government’s help.”
