Obama Will “Make Netanyahu Pay”



Obama Will “Make Netanyahu Pay”
By Robert Spencer

The elimination and then restoration (after, and only after,
a national outcry) of language calling Jerusalem the capital of Israel from the
Democrat Party platform last week was revealing enough, but a more significant
abandonment of Israel came when the Pentagon decided to decrease drastically its
participation in a joint military exercise with the Jewish state – while pursuing
military exercises with the new Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt.

At the same time, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
Martin Dempsey, even suggested that an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear sites
would be a crime, and that the U.S. would have no part of it, when he said: “I
don’t want to be complicit if they choose to do it.”

An Israeli official explained that the diminishment of the joint
exercise was “the Obama administration’s response to the dinner party Netanyahu
held in Romney’s honor,” and another took a longer view: “Regardless of the
exercise, the relations between Israel and the US have soured.” Most ominously,
one official noted: “The US elections are in two months, and there is no doubt
that President Barack Obama, if he is reelected, will make Netanyahu pay for
his behavior. It will not pass quietly.”

Such a view is widely shared stateside – especially among
those who long for just such an eventuality. The crude and arrogant stealth Islamic
Reza Aslan tweeted gleefully: “The way Bibi has tried to
manipulate and embarrass Obama at every turn, he should be scared shitless of
Obama’s reelection.”

Israeli officials attributed Iran’s increasingly brazen
statements of its genocidal intentions toward Israel and belligerence toward
America well to this Obama Administration stance. One explained: “This is why
the Iranians are issuing threatening statements against the US. Washington’s
hesitant policy is making the Iranians feel freer to move ahead with the
nuclear program. This is not how you create deterrence to avoid a military

Indeed, and it is a far cry from Obama’s address at the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in May 2011, when he struck a
conciliatory tone: “Even while we may at times disagree, as friends sometimes
will, the bonds between the United States and Israel are unbreakable, and the
commitment of the United States to the security of Israel is ironclad.”

Yet even when he spoke them, those words were hollow, and they’re even
hollower now. According to Shimon Shiffer in Ynet News,
the Administration’s abandonment of Israel in its attempt to head off an
Iranian nuclear bomb wasn’t remotely limited to Dempsey’s “don’t want to be
complicit” remark: “The United States has indirectly informed Iran, via two
European nations, that it would not back an Israeli strike against the country’s
nuclear facilities, as long as Tehran refrains from attacking American
interests in the Persian Gulf…According to the report, Washington used covert
back-channels in Europe to clarify that the US does not intend to back Israel
in a strike that may spark a regional conflict.”

Not only did Obama inform a nation that considers itself an enemy of the
U.S. that it would not support a U.S. ally, but Ynet added that Obama “is promoting a series of steps meant to curb an
Israeli offensive against Iran, while forcing the Islamic
Republic to take the nuclear negotiations more seriously.

In that context it is useful to
remember what the Kuwaiti MP Jama’an Al-Harbash said on al-Jazeera
in March 2010: “This is a war of religion, not just a war between Arabs and
Israelis, or a war between liberators and occupiers. This is an ideological
war, an Islamic war, which will end in victory only under the banner of Jihad.”

Those who believe such things will never be compelled to
take “nuclear negotiations” seriously enough to end the jihad against Israel.
Islamic supremacists will never accept Israel’s existence, even if the “Palestinians”
have a state, and even if Obama makes all kinds of concessions to Iran to get
them to take negotiations more seriously. On the contrary: the Islamic
supremacists will be emboldened to fight on for final victory against their
weakened foe.

Netanyahu, and Israel, must not be “made to pay.” All free
people must now stand against Obama, against the jihadis who wish to destroy
the Jewish State, and with Israel.
