On the Saturday before MLK Day, in a news-dump holiday weekend, there were sudden flashes beginning Saturday morning. It was announced that Obama and Iranians agreed to "exchange" prisoners for ten US Navy sailors being held by the Iranian Government. They were likely kidnapped in international waters. These American sailors were forced on their knees with hands behind their heads while being screamed at in a foreign language.
Then the US sailors appeared in a cell as scene two of a powerful propaganda piece was filmed by their Iranian captors so all the world could witness the forced genuflections. The coup de gras was the sailor who "apologized" and "thanked" the Iranians for their kind treatment while looking into the Iranian camera.
Those and four other Americans, including a Christian priest who was tortured and beaten for years while rotting in an Iranian jail, were released. One hostage was not delivered. He's FBI/CIA agent Robert Levinson. The only difference between him and the others?
He's Jewish. Strike One!
The Iranians claim to have lost track of Bob. Gee, I believe them don't you? Of course I'm thrilled when any American held under these circumstances is released. But Jewish Americans and Jewish Israelis seem to be third class American citizens these days. Want more examples?
• The Obama Administration agreed to convince Interpol to stop investigating the Iranian/Hezbollah blowup of the Israeli Embassy in Argentina in 1992 and a Jewish Center in that same country in 1994. A total of 116 were murdered, most of them Jews. About 500 were injured. At one time our Argentinian Pope Cardinal Francis was outraged by this murder. Yet after this capitulation, he hasn't uttered a peep. However, I did see a picture of the Pontiff shaking hands with the Iranian President, Hassan Rouani. The latter was traveling unfettered in Europe, making billions in deals with the Italian Government with the Francis' blessings. Strike Two!
• Spokesperson for the State Department, John Kirby raved against Israeli attempts to fight the ongoing NGO (Non-Government Organization) invasion of the Holy Land. US-paid female Palestinians are assigned to throw rocks at IDF personnel and film their reaction. Then the US intends to spread the Israeli counter attacks around the world. Kirby is beside himself because Israeli Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked, got a law passed regulating NGOs, a mirror image of the same law in the USA. Strike Three!
• US Ambassador to Israel, Dan Shapiro eviscerated Israel for being too harsh on the marauding and murdering Palestinians on the same day Dafna Meir an Israeli mother was stabbed to death by a Palestinian teenager in her home in front of her six children. That same day another Israeli woman was stabbed. She's pregnant. Strike Four
• The release of $150 BILLION to the Iranian terrorists. John Kerry assured us that it was inevitable that some of that cash would be used against the US and Jews. Strike Five!
• The lifting of sanctions while the Iranians started war games within 1500 yards of a US air craft carrier and the testing of a ballistic missile that they plan to use against the USA someday. Strike Six, Seven and Eight!
• As Jennifer Rubin points out, the United States is now in cahoots with the EU to force Israel to label goods made in "disputed" areas of Israel. It's not a boycott, insists State Department Spokesman John Kirby. Only people with room temperature IQ's would believe that. Strike Nine.
• On the day Dafna Meir was slaughtered, the Obama Administration backed UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon claimed the Palestinians had a right to murder Israelis. It should be pointed out that Moon has been accused of war crimes for storing rockets in UN facilities in Gaza that were fired at Israel by Hamas. Ban-Ki is further implicated for knowing that civilian shields, including children, were placed by these weapons. Strike 10.
Hey, my first 300 game as in Russia's sale of the S-300 missile system to protect Iran's nuke program from Israeli attack. However, it's no call for celebration even though I plan to have adult beverages this evening, just enough to drown my sorrow for our miserable government yet not enough to shut me up.
During yesterday's Holocaust remembrance day, Obama opined that"… we were all Jews." I know Jews. I am a Jew. I know all sorts in all races friendly to Jews. Barrack Obama is no Jew, nor is he a friend of the Jews.
We will fight back.
Tic Toc, Tic Toc less than one year to go!
May He bless and keep Obama far away from us!
