Editor’s Note – The fact that the Obama administration is leaning further and further away from Israel should come as no surprise. Just look at the people our President surrounds himself with, in his own administration!
And, lest we forget, the very first interview Obama gave as President of the United States was with the Arabic cable TV network Al-Arabiya, and, he has since made multiple trips to the Middle East, yet, has still not found the time to visit Israel. The outright ‘snub’ of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu at a White House meeting back in March is also a clear indication of Obama’s position on Middle East policy.
Now, fully confident of the support of the White House, the radical far left has injected itself into these affairs, with their well known penchant for violence and confrontation. We can expect things to get worse in a hurry. We can also be sure that the media will trump these efforts as a just and heroic cause, aligning it with the Civil Rights movement as a great humanitarian struggle.
What all involved will knowingly look past is that the left is aligning itself with barbaric terrorists that kill without pause, and this naivete is sure to add to a powder keg waiting to go off. One thing is certain, Israel will defend itself, with or without it’s American ‘ally’, which is a good thing, as there may be very little support coming, at least not until 2012.
Brace yourselves for the approaching storm.
White House Linked to Flotilla Organizers
Israel official ties president’s adviser to controversial ‘Free Gaza Movement’
By Jerome R. Corsi
A top adviser to President Obama is the contact person within the White House for communications with the Free Gaza Movement over plans to challenge Israel’s blockade of the terrorist Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip, according to a reputable source close to the Netanyahu government.
The source, a career official whose reliability was established through his tips for the book, “Why Israel Can’t Wait,” identified John O. Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism, as the contact.
The allegation raises the bizarre possibility that the Free Gaza Movement’s flotilla action in the Mediterranean was being coordinated with the White House, something that would align with a shift in U.S. policy toward Israel being debated within the Obama administration.
Mike Hammer, a National Security Council spokesman, told WND flatly the report “is not true.”
His response was followed quickly by another denial, when WND asked if Hammer also rejected the claim Brenner was a key force within the White House pushing for a change in U.S. policy toward Israel in demanding an end to the blockade, as the WND source reported.
The New York Times reported this week that the Obama administration’s policy toward Israel was changing in a re-evaluation that now considers Israel’s blockade of Gaza to be untenable. But Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu insisted in a special press conference in his office Thursday that “Israel will not apologize for defending itself,” which strongly suggested Israel fully intends to continue its blockade.
Brenner, who has declared himself a “citizen of the world”, has involved himself in situations with groups known to have ties to Middle East terrorism. He has also stated that U.S. foreign policy should encourage greater assimilation of the Hezbollah terrorist organization into the Lebanese government.
Radical far left activists William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, as well as Jodie Evans, the leader of Code Pink, all with ties to Obama, are top supporters of the Free Gaza Movement. Ayers, Dohrn and Evans were involved in provoking chaos on the streets of Egypt back in December in an attempt to enter Hamas-controlled Gaza with the Free Gaza Movement to join in solidarity with Gaza’s population and leadership.
