Allen West Rebukes Obama’s Shift on Israel

By | May 20, 2011

Allen West(WASHINGTON)—- Congressman Allen West (R: FL-22) released a scathing rebuke of President Obama’s shift of American foreign policy on the Isreali-Palenstinian conflict:

“Today’s endorsement by President Barack Obama of the creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders, signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish state.

From the moment the modern day state of Israel declared statehood in 1948, to the end of the 1967 Six Day War, Jews were forbidden access to their holiest site, the Western Wall in Jerusalem’s Old City, controlled by Jordan’s Arab army.

The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world’s Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism.

Resorting to the pre-1967 borders would mean a full withdrawal by the Israelis from the West Bank and the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem.  Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.

In short, the Hamas-run Palestinian state envisioned by President Obama would be devastating to Israel and the world’s 13.3 million Jews. It would be a Pavlovian style reward to a declared Islamic terrorist organization, and an unacceptable policy initiative.

America should never negotiate with the Palestinian Authority- which has aligned itself with Hamas. Palestine is a region, not a people or a modern state. Based upon Roman Emperor Hadrian’s declaration in 73 AD, the original Palestinian people are the Jewish people.

It’s time for the American people to stand by our strongest ally, the Jewish State of Israel, and reject this foreign policy blunder of epic proportions.

While the winds of democracy may blow strong in the Middle East, history has demonstrated that gaps in leadership can lead to despotic regimes.  I have questions for President Obama:  ‘Who will now lead in Egypt?’ and ‘Why should American taxpayers provide foreign aid to a nation where the next chapter in their history may be the emergence of another radical Islamic state?’

President Obama has not stood for Israel or the Jewish people and has made it clear where the United States will stand when Palestine attempts to gain recognition of statehood by the United Nations.  The President should focus on the real obstacle to security- the Palestinian leadership and its ultimate goal to eliminate Israel and the Jewish people.”

    obama is helping to assist the Muslim Brotherhood in establishing a World Caliphate and/or a neo-Ottoman

    Even though Syria, at the time of obama’s campaign was on the a state sponspored terrorist hit list from our State Department, he sent his foreign advisor, Mitchel, on a pow wow with Assad (in violation of the Logan Act) What happened with his buddies, I am not sure..but probably they weren’t doing enough to destroy Israel: i.e. Gadaffi, Mubarak, and Turkey.

    Now the Egyptians are carrying Nazi signs bringing back crucifixations, burning Churches and forcing Christians our of their homes. And moving big guns into the Sinai.

    When we ever learn that Islam is Hitler’s “Final Solution”; first for the Jews……..?

    I can see no justification for President Obama recognising Hamas-led Palestinian state. This goes against all that America stands For:- freedom and the right to live peacefully. Isreal will not be able to live in peace if they have to hand back territory they won in 1967. Isreal must be supported by their ‘allies’ no matter what, but it appears that their allies are turning their backs on them.

    I thought this president was a God-fearing man, who stood up for what is right in the world. Perhaps it is time some people picked up their Bible and read what God says what will happen to those who turn from the people of Isreal. To turn from Isreal is to turn from God.

      He’s a Muslim who loves the Muslim Brotherhood above all else.. And a fake president to boot. He was put through school by the Saudis & he hates Christians, Jews & Israel. Fox is guarding the henhouse in short. America’s under foreign control & as the days go by it seems to be following the template of Hitler’s rise to power. Yes we must stand firm with our brethren Israel. It’s existence is God’s greatest sign & proves we are in the last generation Jesus spoke of. God Bless You. :)
