Krauthammer: Obama has done more to undermine Israel’s position in the world than any other president

Obama said this last night at a fundraiser:

“I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration. And that’s not just our opinion, that’s the opinion of the Israeli government.”

Krauthammer completely disagrees, saying first that the above is not the opinion of the Israeli government, and more importantly that the opposite is true, that Obama has done more to delegitimize and undermine Israel’s position in the world than any other president. And he did it by making Israeli settlements an issue in peace talks. He also notes that Obama sat on his hands when the Iranian regime was at his weakest in 2009 because he thought he could negotiate with Iran, another mistake.

Here’s the clip:

    Just one of many failures that the regime leader will lie about. Good grief… The lies will get bigger before the November election.

      And the sycophantic lemmings will just continue to plug their ears and sing loudly. Oh, and the willfully ignorant will continue to pretend that elections don’t mean anything. /sigh November 2012 cannot get here fast enough…

    Keyword “Administration” usually Liar Obama refers to himself in the first person. I guess for the next 11 months facts have no merit as one ponders truth versus fiction, the truth hurts since Obama is a pathological LIAR.

  • Maxsteele

    Don’t forget the fall of Egyptian regime that was , with Jordan, the only arab country to have a peace treaty with Israel. He actively supported the revolution by the Islamists there and in Libya. Now you have Islamists that are more extreme then the Mullah’s in Iram on Israels doorstep. Syria is gong to fall soon as well and will also be taken over by Islamists. Then you will have Turkey, Egypt and Syria along with Lebanon ( a proxy of Iran) surrounding Israel and we are back to pre-1973. Obama is not only delusional he is pure, unadulterated, evil.

    Sounds kinda like Ahmadinejad.

  • One-bama makes these Orwellian statements and the MSM takes them and trumpets them as gospel truth. It’s the power of propaganda. I spent part of Thanksgiving listening to clueless progressives telling me how One-bama will be the greatest POTUS we have ever had. And they were serious.

    For progressives it’s simple

    Obama is our Liar in Chief. If his lips are moving he is lying. There has never been an American President that is more Anti-American & Anti-Israel than Obama is. The National Media, Hollywood, and the Liberal’s all do their best to cover for him though. Crime after crime is committed by this administration and not a peep out of the Slobbering Love Affair Media. We are headed towards a tipping point and it won’t be pretty. Democrats/Liberals are filthy crooks much like the Mob, or should I say the Chicago Way Mob. Our entire political system and the national media are corrupt. I pray it isn’t to late to reverse course. Prepare yourselves and your family for the collapse of the dollar. Take up arms and buy silver, be ready. God help us all.

  • There is no one who will buy that line. I mean absolutely no one. This guy is crazy to even say that as a joke. Maybe he IS delusional and by that I can only mean stark raving mad. If he keeps on a path of saying stuff like this, he’ll probably have to be institutionalized. Not just for the country’s sake, but his as well.

    OH! I get it, when he says, “but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration” He means that with all the strengthening of the Jew hating jihadists that he’s helped to transform the moderate Islamic states into that the security of Israel rests completely in God’s Almighty hand… well then I agree.

      Truth is difficult to find these days. It seems to be the enemy, the underdog. I hate being lied to. I hate it when my fellow countrymen are lied to. I hate it when my children, siblings and parents are lied to.

      Between godlessness, progressivism, government takeover of healthcare, and global-warming alarmism, we will lose our freedom. Every aspect of our lives will be controlled by a central planner.

      I want my kids to know that God lives and that His son is Jesus Christ. I want them to understand and appreciate virtue. I want them to be free and be able to go as far as their talents, abilities, and persistence will take them. I want them to see self-made millionaires and billionaires and respect them, as people who have pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps. I want them to be able to go and do likewise. Entrepreneurs who have made lots of money are to be admired, rather than demonized. I pine for the culture that was America.

      There are reasons America became so great, so fast. There are also those who would dismantle those reasons and thereby, the cause and continuation of that greatness. They are the enemy of my soul, the enemy of my country, and will ever be.

      • Oh! double that Amen brother of mine. I share the same as you as far as those wants go. One of the reasons I advertise my Canadian heritage is not necessarily because of where I came from- as much as pride for where I came TO. It’s so hard to see this beautiful nation go in such a drastic direction which is so opposite to the one it was going when I first came here, and I want to remind people of that- from one who CHOSE to come in large part because of it’s greatness and the greatness of the people. I want my son to know. I want my step kids and granddaughters to know just how great this nation has been and can be if we would only return to the Lord Who has blessed it.
        Alright- now it’s your turn to git. My eyes be misty.

  • I’ve completely lost all respect for Krauthammer, but he is right, this time. However, Obama has done far more than undermine Israel; he’s become a bigger threat to world peace and global stability, than the Iranians. While claiming responsibility for the Egyptian criminal uprising…

    …he’s publicly backed a known terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, that has not only spawned more terrorist organizations, but has literally taken up arms against the WORLD, in World War 2:

    Seeing that crime does pay, this has inspired other criminally-inclined, on-the-edge, at-risk nations to see their own governments toppled or threatened by identical crime waves, such as in Libya, where al-Qaeda proudly flies their flag over a courthouse. Realize it or not, but each and every nation where this happens is a FAILED STATE. A failed state has lost the benefit (quote-unquote) of legitimate government, and has fallen into the hands of someone else, or no one (and is waiting to fall into someone’s hands). Somalia is a prime example. Failed states have no law and order mechanism to defend themselves, and become host to parasites like a diseased body. These parasites, in this example, are terrorists. Somalia is a nation in name, only, and has become a literal haven for terrorists and pirates. All other islamic states going through these upheavals and criminal uprisings are going down the same road, and, like squat neighborhood Palestine, will become asylums run by the lunatics. Alongside this, Obama has seemingly gone out of his way to alienate anyone and everyone that called themselves an American ally. Remember this?:

    Through a combination of malignancy (intention acts in line with agenda) and stupidity (his lack of capability to mentally comprehend situations and people), he [Obama] has allowed monsters like the NORKS, Venezuelans, PRC, Pakistanis and USSR to become ascendant and a menace to everyone in the world. Obama, being a spineless, stupid wimp, has done more to undermine WORLD peace, not just Israeli national security interests, not just American national security interests, than any dictator that started either of the first two world wars.

    As far as I’m concerned, Obama has a lot to answer for.

    After he gives Egypt and Libya over to the muslim brotherhood, refuses to take a stand against Iran, emboldens every Islamic country in the Middle East to become even more aggressive toward Israel, he says he’s done more for her than any other president?

      Tell if this is to simplistic or not. I don’t agree with giving any country financial aid and that includes Israel. I just don’t think it’s right that tax payers in this country should be provide benefits to others in other countries. Leave aid to private charities if it is a poverty or medical matter. I think the only support our friends should get is our very vocal support behind them. For example Israel and Iran(or basically every other country in the Middle East that hates Israel…and the USA for that matter), if you launch a missile at Israel or any other REAL ally just know that we have our nukes pointed at you and they will be making you a visit at that moment….seems simple enough to me, but hey that’s just the libertarian in me!!

        I appreciate the question. The United States has been a nation blessed with many natural resources and has become the wealth nation on Earth. God commands that we tithe and give to the poor. As a wealthy nation, we should aid other countries that need assistance, say, for natural disasters, countries that do not have the natural resources to provide for their economies. The aid can be in money, food, physical assistance (doctors, teachers, home builders, soldiers, missionaries, etc),

        Our government gave up on our Creator and uses the aid as a political tool and not in the name God. So when you hear about all of the money going to other countries, it goes for the wrong people and for the wrong reasons. It frustrates Americans because it is more than we can afford monetarily and it begins to tear down the moral fabric of our nation because it is not blessed by God.

        God stands on the side of Israel. God stands on the side of those who stand with Israel. If we support Israel with military protection so she does not have to fight a war herself and if we assist in arming Israel in case she has to protect herself, our nation will be blessed.

        Basically, if we do what is right by the Lord everything will fall into place.

        Now THAT is simplistic.

    Obama is a filthy lying sack of dog mess( Thx Whoopie). What drives me insane about the other side is they just don’t give a crap if some one flat out lies. If anyone on any side is a freaking bold face liar I could not support him/her by any stretch and it just makes me sick people both in the media and elsewhere won’t call a spade a spade. It’s really a disgrace we have this and many other dirt bags making the laws and running this country.

  • Probably the clearest example of el-taqiyya by the Muslim Brotherhood President said to datel. Obama wants to destroy Israel and that is the primary reason he was put on the fast track to the WH. Obama is the greatest existential threat to American Jews in the past 60 years. A vote for Obama is a vote for your own destruction.

    He is such a liar. He seems mentally ill to me. Inappropriate laughing, unable to maintain during a grave situation, etc. As Lt. Bobby Goren would say, his “affect” is all wrong.

  • Anonymous

    Charles didn’t mention… Obama’s first major move to destroy Israel was urging them to return to pre-1967 borders as part of the negotiation process with the Palestinians.

    That would’ve been suicide for Israel, and everyone knows it. Then, placing them on the terror watch list, shortly thereafter, wasn’t too friendly either… or insulting the prime minister all those times…

    Obama is delusional… so are Jews that continue to vote for him; though many have seen the light, as 78% of American Jews who voted for him in 2008 have shrunk to a 45% approval rating.

    Go ahead, Barry, pat yourself on the back… another voting demographic down the tubes… but, more importantly, our long-time ally has been pushed closer to the brink of war because of you.

  • herb cruz

    Even if Obama is re-election via some sort of demo-Rat miracle… He will be looking at a senate and a house that is in control of even more Republicans. He is better off calling it a day. But, he will not care… that is the “change” you can believe in

      “demo-Rat voter fraud” there, I fixed that for you.

  • Charles just tells it like it is. I’m so glad Bret and the crew get the ratings they get because I think at least there is a chance that those who don’t know these things he reaffirms, can begin to undo some of the anti-American hatred and, quite frankly, the ignorance they’ve been taught in universities these days.

    BO does know it…or does he? Until recently I thought BO was simply a consummate liar; to lie was a means to an end. Having no moral boundaries and realizing at a young age that no one would hold him accountable (as implied in “Dreams of my Father’) lying became effortless and got him what he wanted. Now, however, the statements he is making on many issues are in such stark contrast to actual reality that one really has to question his sanity…the degree to which he indulges in lies is pathological. Nero reincarnate.

    Just one more lie from The Big Zero/Obama, he threw Israel under the bus.

  • rafjo82

    The thing about Obama’s statement is that it is clearly laid out to act as double speak.

    Read again “this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration”
    It doesn’t read that it has done more in terms of aiding/helping/improving/etc. the security of the state of Israel. It reads “has done more in TERMS of the security in the region.

    Therefore, Obama isn’t lying here, but rather implicitly stating that his administration takes the cake on transforming America’s stance with Israel (which is true). His administration is kicking them under the bus. Obama doesn’t want to lie so he IMPLICITLY states that his administration is withdrawing America’s support from Israel.

    I am an ex Israel Soldier, and a past anti terrorist agent. Now I educate America, EU, UK, India and even Israel about anti terrorism. Now helping East Africa and Israel with this:

    Israel needs your help in protecting the Galilee. Please send this out to friends and family that might be able to help.

    I have asked Jews, non-Jews, and Zionists to help with this and all I get is silence and sometimes the project and I are attacked.

    George Soros through, The New Israel Fund organized, funded and trained local Arabs to attacks the ranches, farms In Israel to drive the Jews out of the Galilee. Once started, these attacks will continue on independent of the New Israel Fund. Leading to the possible creation of a “Fifth Column or Trojan Horse” behind IDF defense lines.

    To solve this problem we need Nachal (an Israeli Army unit that also does agriculture projects), The New Shomrim (a teenager group protecting the ranches), the Israeli Boarder Guards, volunteers and the Israel Longhorn Project all working together.

    Israel Ranches are being attacked their passive European cattle is being mutilated and killed by local Palestinians, jackals and wolves. Israel needs desert cattle that fits its environment and can defend it’s self and it’s calves. That breed of cattle is Texas Longhorn. Helping Israel and Africa.

    Typical obama, typical socialist / marxist: LIAR.

    obama might as well keep his mouth shut, because any time he speaks we know he’s LYING.

  • The video wasn’t available but obama will regret he did not support Israel the say he stands before The Lord God Almighty. Genesis 12:2 “I will make of you(Israel) a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”

    We need to pay closer attention to what Obama said. He really HAS done more for Israel’s security…but note that he didn’t say whether what he has done was in a POSITIVE or NEGATIVE manner!

  • Obama is also terrible for Israel due to the way he supported Islamist takeovers in Tunisia and Egypt – when both of these could have had a different outcome.
