In yesterday’s third U.S debate, Governor Romney asked why the newly-elected President Obama avoided Israel on his visit to the Middle East.
Obama replied that he did visit Israel on a previous visit, the one that he made during his election campaign.
Any person can see through this ploy. He was courting the Jewish lobby during the election, of course.
Once he was became President, however, Obama felt that he no longer had to suck up to the Jews. So he blatantly omitted Israel from his visit to the Middle East.
I can still see the image of Obama grovelling to the Arabs, bending over and kissing the hands of the Saudis. It was a degrading act for the leader of a nation which fought and won independence from monarchy.
And there he was bending over and grovelling to the the nations that nurtured the attack on the Twin Towers.
Now in this third debate Obama said he stands with the Israelis.
Now what is that famous saying again? “With friends like these……”
It will be another four years of this and thank goodness that he can only have two stints in the presidency.
