The Betrayal Unmasked by Paul Schnee:

Excellent commentary from ACT supporter, Paul Schnee

Once, when trying to describe Richard Wagner's music to a friend Mark Twain said it was better than it sounds. No such claim can be made for the miserable speech given yesterday on the Middle East by Barack Obama. Displaying all the confidence of his inability and beaming his wisdom towards us he confirmed in the starkest terms why his long held prejudices, cloaked as a foreign policy, have made his Oval Office not only the graveyard for any peace and justice in the Middle East but also the incubator for the next great conflict there. Obama's intentions towards Israel have never been good but yesterday he proved just how hostile he is to the Jewish state of Israel. By suggesting that Israel should return to the indefensible armistice lines of 1967 he is deliberately creating a situation whereby Israel could easily be cut in half in any future Arab attack upon her. One of the most perverse forms of anti-Semitism is to expect Jews to die meekly but despite just enough rhetoric to make it sound as if he is an honest broker this is just what Obama has in mind. If this were not the case he would not propose such a suicidal arrangement and he would have condemned the recent alliance between Hamas, an internationally recognised terrorist organization dedicated to Israel's destruction, and the so called Palestinian Authority which is just the PLO masquerading as a government. Furthermore, he would have condemned the identical Al Queda, Hamas, Hizbollah and Palestinian Authority rhetoric of Jew-hatred and incitment to violence which has greatly increased during his administration. This increase is due to their perception that when the president of the United States demonstrates a cold reluctance to impose any penalties for bad behaviour and keeps making demands on Israel he shows he is actually entirely sympathetic to their cause even if he is unable to actually come out and say so in public.

However, we do not need Obama to publicly declare his support for a group of Islamic fascists whose undiminished goal is the extinction of Israel and the destruction of the West in order to prove his predilictions. All we need to do is to look at the anti-Israel appointees in his administration and others with whom he has surrounded himself: Samantha Powers, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, George Soros, Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayres, Jeremiah Wright, Chuck Hagel, Hannah Rosenthal, Charles Freeman and J Street et al to name a few.

It is disturbing in the extreme to witness an American president enthusiastically endorse the propaganda of that enormous, well-oiled, contraption of distortion, the Palestinian Myth Machine to the extent that the only liberal democracy in the Middle East and America's strongest ally in the region is regarded with contempt and thinly disguised hostility in favor of genocidal enemies who will never be satisfied with "land for peace" but only with Israel's annihilation and the murder of as many Jews as possible. Yesterday, Obama brought this awful spectre closer to a reality. His speech was a shameful act in a career of shameful acts and a form of reckless selfishness to which our history affords no parallel. It deranged what should be all of our strategic and proper calculations in the region.

The Palestinian/Israel conflict is actually a highly deceptive misnomer since all there has ever been is an Arab war against Israel. This war, in the form of massacres and pogroms, was going on in the Middle East for decades long before the establishment of modern day Israel in 1948. Even during World War II the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Amin al-Husanyi, allied himself with Hitler and was active in recruting Arabs for the Waffen SS. To assert that the current conflict is as a result of Israel's creation in 1948 is to misrepresent and mischaracterise the root of the problem namely doctrinally inspired Arab hatred of Jews...period. Grasp that and you will have grasped the very heart of the matter. This simple fact should be obvious even to the slowest of minds yet it continues to elude Barack Obama. Clearly, a degree from Harvard is not sufficient proof of brilliance.

Perhaps Obama's speech will have a sobering effect upon the 78% of Jews who cast their ballot for him in 2008. Then their reason was overpowered by their imagination when their Judaism was subverted by their new religion of liberalism, a constant bewitcher of due diligence. Few had any idea that they were simultaneously handing Adolf Hitler a posthumous victory in his quest for the Final Solution and placing a cuckoo in the nest of democracy. Yesterday's speech now proves it.
