Krauthammer: Very troubling for pro-Israel community what language DNC didn’t reinstate on Israel

Responding to Democrats adding back the language on God and Jerusalem, Krauthammer says Dems are acting like they don’t know how it was ever removed. But Krauthammer says words don’t just walk off the page, that it was intentionally done as a reflection of Obama’s distancing himself from Israel. He also makes the point that given that the rule didn’t really pass, it’s a reflection of how strong the anti-Israel sentiment actually is in the Democratic Party.

Krauthammer adds that this is very troubling for the pro-Israel community, especially considering they didn’t reinstate the language on isolating Hamas, the 1967 borders and Right of Return.

  • This is just another example of the Obama administration being out of touch and unorganized. That is dog whistle for Marxist Moron. But really what do you expect from a guy that calls his grandmother who raised him a typical white person.

    • FreeManWalking

      Wheeeeeeet, Wheeeeeeet, Wheeeeeeet come on boy…

    • If I ever get the chance I want to ask Obama what exactly constitutes a typical white person? How would he know what one is? And isn’t saying “a typical white person” a racist statement unto itself?

      I only need 30 seconds li8ke Joe the Plumber.

  • Obama intervened…LOL!!! WHAT CROCK…He approved the platform to begin with!! Is the shovel he is carrying big enough for all that is dropping out of his back side!!!! Sorry Obama…24 hours too late!!

    • sDee

      Not much of a risk I suspect for Hussein Obama. He is seen a “stepping in” and sends a strong signal to the liberal Jewish vote. Then he simply spreads the word among the muslim vote that a bit of taqiyya was needed to deceive Jews.

      • Bull….it makes him look out of touch and politically pandering everywhere….sorry sDee when you blow with the wind you end with no core and base. He looks totally small and the Action on the Floor reinforced that. He does NOT look like “HE STEPPED IN” WHEN HE APPROVED THE ORIGINAL IN THE FIRST PLACE!! Understand??? He looks stupid and WAS EMBARRASSED BIG TIME….Who in God’s name would think He stepped in when he was the MAN BEHIND THE ORIGINAL???

        NO…he stepped in when he was SMACKEDDOWN and EMBARRASSED and SLAMMED…that is not Stepping In….THAT IS TRYING TO SAVE POLITICAL FACE!!!

        Sorry but the risk was devestating he not only exposed his left flank he exposed the ENTIRE DEM DNC AND PARTY….And right in front of the world…SORRY HE SCREWED UP BIG TIME!!

        • Sober_Thinking

          Actually my friend, you are both right.

    • warpmine

      Yes and you know that crap doesn’t stink in the minds of DemonRats.

  • Charles is right…the omission did not just jump off the paper….it was intentional!! And Charles is right they left off Hamas and the 67 borders!! Obama hates Israel and would gladly see it destroyed for his Arab friends!! AP….Breaking Obama intervened personally…yeah right AP everyone buys that LEMON OF BS!!!

  • toongoon

    Has Brett Baier been able to reach Dickless Durban for a comment?

    • Nukeman60

      You live closer to him than I do. Did he change his area code so Brett couldn’t be seen as not fair and balanced again? Perhaps, Dickie is waiting for his exploded head to grow back, ala Men in Black. 🙂

    • Nice reference. Made me think of that funny Ghostbusters exchange in the mayor’s office.

  • stage9

    Like I’ve said elsewhere, these boos were nothing more than the voice of evil rising out of the pits of hell.

    • Siobhan7

      What terrifies me is that this evil party and Obama may still pull this off. There are so many stupid people in this country. Pray!

  • MaxineCA

    Well, this should get even more interesting (and entertaining), when Bret asks the next dim he interviews “why” that language was not included. I can’t wait to see them try to blame Fox once again.

    So sad that dear leader’s campaign geniuses haven’t found a way to blame Bush. They tried blaming Fox, and that didn’t work. Axelrod must be pulling out what little hair he has trying to find a way to spin this.

    • Nukeman60

      Ahhh, to watch football tonight or watch Clinton’s speech? They will both be entertaining, but the total collapse of the DNC is worth the price of admission. I wish I were in Charlotte. 🙂

      • MaxineCA

        What to do, what to do? I’d say watch football! I’m sure the speech will be posted here at Scoop with his thoughts on it. Enjoy your evening!

    • FreeManWalking

      I would like to watch Brett ask Durban, Why did the democratic party leadership feel the need to put the language back into the platform? Yesterday you strongly defended that it didn’t mean anything that it was nothing but a TRIFLE that it wasn’t included.

      Your Wrong if you are or if you are not drawing conclusions…

    • kong1967

      Give him a mirror and let him pull out the hair on his back. That’ll keep him busy for a very long time.

  • Nukeman60

    It’s interesting. The language of Jerusalem and of God were put back in the platform only because there was a stink made about it on national TV. The removal of the language about Hamas and the ’67 borders was not mentioned on national TV, so the DNC were able to slip it by.

    I think we should pursue those just as strongly and see just how far they can collapse. The clowns are dancing now and they wonder why they had to move tomorrow’s speech due to weather. If they’re not careful, their rain dances will bring on the Tsunami.

    • stage9

      The fact that no one objected at all up to that point even is very telling.

      Conservatives intuitively include God in the platform — it’s second nature, because we acknowledge our need for God personally in our lives…why is it that liberals do not?

      • kong1967

        Their god is Obama and government.

    • kong1967

      I don’t think it would work for Hamas and the ’67 borders, except for maybe the Jewish voters. Most libs wouldn’t know what the heck you’re talking about.

      Dems were telling people not to come to the convention, supposedly because of the weather. Yeah, whatever. They are terrified that no one will show up, and now they will have an excuse for it. They didn’t come because of the weather. Dems were setting up the scenario so they wouldn’t have to explain to the press why they couldn’t fill the seats.

  • PhillyCon

    “Change Sparks Chaos at Convention, watch angry boos overwhelm arena” is the lead story right now on AOL/Huffpo. Yeah, it’s pretty bad when this outlet runs with such a headline.

  • hbnolikeee

    Didn’t debby wassa maan shootz along with her gang state how divided the GOP is an how united the dumbocrats are? Gee, I didn’t hear any booing last week?!

  • Spartan4Palin

    Gang, if it’s this easy to make them cave on an issue, why the hell haven’t the Republicans gone after them on other things? These are things they hate more than ’tissue’ in the womb.

    Just think how we could’ve had a budget 4 years ago? Just think how we could’ve turn the tide on Obamacare? If we only had leaders in our party with a pair to fight like this?

    • kong1967

      It’s not this easy on most issues. It worked this time because there are a lot of Democrats who were offended that G-d and Jerusalem were removed from the platform. Getting that kind of disconnect between Obama and his voters is very rare.

  • The big problem is that the DNC has been courting the Palestinian Arabs for years, and vice-versa. (On a related note, I wouldn’t be surprised if “Pallywood” videos had help from Hollywood-based film consultants.) The DNC, and of course Obama, see the American Arab population as another voting bloc. This means courting fake “Palestinians” and treating them better than Israelis, while reducing the hard-line stance of the US against Hamas.

    This is another aspect of the destruction of American culture that has to be beaten into the ground.

    Here’s what letting Sharia take hold in your country leads to. I guess we should be glad to see the woman stand up for herself, and wish she had second-amendment protection. She’ll probably be put in jail, if not killed by relatives of the man, or even stoned for the crime of being victimized.

    What’s truly bizarre about the Dems is that they will overlook the treatment of women in the Middle East while claiming Republicans are waging a War On Women. Even more perplexing is the well-known fact that the Arabs despise almost everything the Democrats stand for.

    • sDee

      The clueless statists have no what they have hauled on board their ship of fools. This “disaffected group” is using them. Muslims cannot be controlled as they do with blacks women, gays and hispanics. They bide their time and then slit the throats of no-longer-useful idiots.

      • Yep. All they need is time.

        • kong1967

          Exactly, and they think in terms of decades or centuries. We can barely think beyond a decade and we give up on a war effort.

      • kong1967

        Exactly. It takes a complete idiot to court votes from people that can’t stand a single thing about him (the idiot). The only possible way to get those votes is to appease and surrender your values to make them happy. In essence, you have to sell your soul to the devil just for a few votes. They also have to sell the liberal voters down the river, because even a lot of liberals believe in G-d and they definitely believe in gay rights. You can’t court the vote of an angel and a demon at the same time. Not that liberals are angels, but just sayin’.

    • kong1967

      “Even more perplexing is the well-known fact that the Arabs despise almost everything the Democrats stand for.”

      Yes, because they support the weakest link that they can penetrate and manipulate. Dems removed G-d and Jerusalem from their platform, we can’t associate muslims to any terrorist attacks even when they scream “Allah Akbar” just beforehand, Obama is refusing to call Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and on and on.

      Seems to me that the Arabs know what they are doing. Libs love to appease and be passive because they evidently believe that Islam will let them live when the day comes.

      I’ve got news for you dumba$$ liberals. You’re going to be the first in line to get beheaded because you won’t be fighting against it. You’re nothing but a vehicle to advance Islam here in the states and you’re too dumb to realize it. You are exactly like a pig driving himself to the slaughter house.

  • p m

    Good – CK just confirms it was zero’s plan all along.
    As we knew anyway.

    • kong1967

      Yes, but it’s nice when the Dems mistakenly make it obvious we were right.

  • warpmine

    Someone’s got some splain’in to do.

  • johnos2112

    Folks because of this New York, that’s right New York state, is in play in November!

    • kong1967

      Seriously? Do you live in New York? It would be the icing on the cake if we took New York.

      • johnos2112

        I don’t live in NY but we all know many Jews do.  Keep in mind NY 9 election was won by a Republican for the first time since 1928.  I think a lot of people are gonna be surprised at what happens in November.

        • kong1967

          Lol, I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised but I never even put NY on the dream list. I hope we take it because that would add insult to injury.

  • The Dems are being infiltrated by muslims.

    • kong1967

      You’ve got that right!!

  • Mike Lee

    As a Canadian Jew, I am stunned that any American Jew would vote for Obama. Surely your views on abortion and gay marriage aren’t as important as the security of Israel?

    • kong1967

      I know, I don’t get it either.

  • kong1967

    I agree with him, but liberals seem to overlook these pesky little details.

  • Once again, Israel is thrown under the bus by Obama and his minions. SOMEBODY took all that language out of the platform. It didn’t just happen in the dark of night. And if that missing language really does reflect the Obama administration’s stand on Israel, the Israelis should be very worried right now, espcially when they have to face an imminent threat from Iran. The sooner Romney can get elected, the better for Israel. But, as of right now, Obama has no love for Israel and sees it more as the problem in the Middle East rather than the solution.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Dems are phonies… Obama knows what a gaffe it was to omit God and Jerusalem. I hope America is able to connect the dots between this, “you didn’t build that”, “we all belong to the government”, and “put ya’ll back in chains”, etc.

    This is all writing on the wall with a big ol spotlight shining on it and neon signs pointing to it.

  • Why did the Republican platform fail to threaten military action against Iran? The Democratic platform — even the original version — did!
