Obama is uneasy with this, but thoroughly down with Muslim Brotherhood operatives in key positions in the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of State, the Department of Justice and the FBI.
In his second term, Obama and company are clearly comfortable with taking the mask off and spewing traditional anti-Jewish incitement to hate. Sounds like he’s taking his talking points from Rouhani.
On Capitol Hill there are lobbies for everything. Literally. Anyone with a cause, a calling, a corporate interest, a national interest or an axe to grind is lobbying our lawmakers. But Obama is uncomfortable with the Jewish groups lobbying on behalf of the Jewish state. And just this week, he advanced the viciously anti-Israel lie that Muslim antisemitism is “only decades old.”
Obama has gone after pro-Israel groups with a vengeance. Obama has consistently snubbed AIPAC throughout his presidency, instead giving the Muslim-funded J Street the respect that AIPAC had earned and enjoyed for decades. J Street, an anti-Israel organization masquerading as a pro-Jewish group, was formed by antisemites like George Soros in order to weaken AIPAC.
Obama urged Jewish leaders not to back Iran sanctions.
Obama has played this dirty game with AIPAC before. When Obama bumbled his way through his Syrian misadventure, he demanded that the Jews carry water for him. Caroline Glick wrote this at the time:
US President Barack Obama’s rapidly changing positions on Syria have produced many odd spectacles.One of odder ones was the sight of hundreds of lobbyists from the American Israel Public Affairs Committee [AIPAC] fanning out on Capitol Hill to lobby members of the House and Senate to support Obama’s plan to launch what Secretary of State John Kerry called “unbelievably small” air strikes against empty regime controlled buildings in Syria. AIPAC officials claimed they were doing this because the air strikes would help Israel.
Obama wanted to launch the unbelievably small strikes to prove that he wasn’t lying when he said that Syria would cross a red line if it used chemical weapons. So if the strikes were going to harm the US and Israel, why did AIPAC dispatch its lobbyists to Capitol Hill to lobby in favor of them? Because Obama made them.
Obama ordered AIPAC to go to Capitol Hill to lobby for the Syria strikes. He did so knowing that its involvement would weaken public support for AIPAC and Israel. Both would be widely perceived as pushing the US to send military forces into harm’s way to defend Israel.
Then, with hundreds of AIPAC lobbyist racing from one Congressional office to the next, Obama left them in a lurch. He announced he was cutting a deal with Russia and had decided not to attack Syria after all.
What did AIPAC get for its self-defeating efforts on Obama’s behalf? Obama is now courting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in the hopes of making a deal that Iran will use as cover for completing its nuclear weapons program.
Apparently, the Jewish groups aren’t steppin’ and fetchin’ for Obama’s annihilationist support of Iran.
“White House reportedly uneasy with Jewish lobbying in Congress,” By Adiv Sterman, The Times of Israel, Janaury 23, 2014
Top Obama administration official tells Israel Radio president, secretary of state ‘unsettled’ by Israel-backed activities on Capitol Hill
he lobbying efforts of Jewish groups in the United States Congress are causing a general uneasiness in the White House, specifically with US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, an official in the Obama administration reportedly said Thursday.
The unnamed official, quoted by Israel Radio, said that “Jewish activity” in Congress, which was perceived by Kerry and Obama to be backed by the Israeli government, was unsettling the two American leaders.
Obama and Kerry, the official continued, were also disappointed by several US Jewish groups’ repeated criticism of the government.
In recent weeks, pro-Israel lobbying groups such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Zionist Organization of America have been applying heavy pressure on members of Congress to support a bill which would impose a new round of sanctions on Iran.
The sanctions bill is strongly opposed by the Obama administration, which fears that the piece of legislation would dampen the possibility of achieving a sustainable diplomatic solution for the Iranian nuclear issue.
The bill, which was sponsored by Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), has so far garnered support from 59 Senators, 16 of which hail from the Democratic party.
The bill is currently eight Senators short of the votes needed in order to assure that the president cannot veto the legislation.
“Our top priority is stopping Iran’s nuclear program, and consequently we are very engaged in building support for the Menendez-Kirk bill which now has the bi-partisan co-sponsorship of 59 senators,” AIPAC’s spokesman, Marshall Wittman, wrote in an email to JTA.
“AIPAC’s relationship with the White House has never been kissy-kissy,” Morris Amitay, a former AIPAC executive director told JTA.
“And if you look at where Congress is today on Israel issues, the peace process, Iran, AIPAC is doing a terrific job.”
