Obama's New Audacity: Israel

Obama has a double standard when it comes to Israel: he wants it done his way or else; whereas he can care less about what Iran does.

The Israelis do things their own way. We many not always agree with them. In fact, they are one of the biggest espionage concerns for America. But they are -- at least have been -- one of our allies.
The Obama administration is now demanding the scrapping of plans for 1,600 new Jewish homes, whose announcement overshadowed last week's visit to Israel by the US Vice-President Joe Biden.
So let's get this straight, Obama is mad at 1600 houses being built int he West Bank, which is still part of Israel, but rarely mentions Iran as it goes on building nuclear weapons and threatens to destroy Israel.

Obama could definitely be considered anti-Semitic, as his actions and word seem to dictate. With his apparent de facto policy towards these nations, he seems pro-Iranian and anti-Israel. I wonder what he hopes but does not ever say?

GREAT post! I was thinking the same thing when I heard the news yesterday.

They want Israel to comply with peace keeping measures but I've not heard a word about Iran or the Palestinians complying with peace keeping measures.
