Choosing the Wrong Side, Middle East Edition

0005Well, this seems a bad idea: In a never-ending conflict between a modern liberal democracy and a backward, degenerate gangster state, the US is choosing to side with… Aww, c’mon, do you really need me to tell you?

Gateway Pundit relates the story of the latest UN hijinx from Foreign Policy:

In sharp reversal, U.S. agrees to rebuke Israel in Security Council

The U.S. informed Arab governments Tuesday that it will support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming that the 15-nation body “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” a move aimed at avoiding the prospect of having to veto a stronger Palestinian resolution calling the settlements illegal.

But the Palestinians rejected the American offer following a meeting late Wednesday of Arab representatives and said it is planning to press for a vote on its resolution on Friday, according to officials familar with the issue. The decision to reject the American offer raised the prospect that the Obama adminstration will cast its first ever veto in the U.N. Security Council.

What are the chances that the Obama administration will actually cast that veto?  Taking bets now.  Given Obama’s disdain for Israel and his affinity for thugs and dictators, I’d set the odds at even.

The Palestinians’ rejection of our first offer shows what they think of the newly compliant America.

(And as a side note, it’s also a textbook demonstration of the blackmailer’s paradox, which says that the least reasonable party in any negotiation always has the advantage. It’s been pretty obvious who the least reasonable party is in this conflict for, oh, the last sixty years or so. And these are the people we want to compromise with.  Good luck, there.)

One thought on “Choosing the Wrong Side, Middle East Edition

  1. I have said in the past I feel this clown is the most Anti-Israel leaning President in my lifetime. One only had to read his book as it was there in his own words! ( Quote from Obama’s book: Audacity of Hope: ‘I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction..’). My question is and has been, being of Jewish descent myself, I can’t help but wonder how the Jewish population here in the U.S. keeps voting for Anti-Semetic liars, yet every polling day, they somehow blindly rush to do so. in turn, we now have an administration that appears more than happy to watch Israel be eradicated. “As Ye sow, so shall Ye reap”. We are now witnessing the harvest of a seed that was planted centuries ago, nurtured over years and years, blooming every now and then (Nazi Germany for example) and now is in fact at full bloom.

    I’m not sure what the answer is, but it sure as hell isn’t the Anti-Semite in the White House anymore that it is the self hating Jews who helped elect him. Israel and in turn Western Civilization as we know it is in grave danger. The Muslims are candid about this while we here in Obama land are being told to accept it by our sad sack leaders! Yet, this could have been stopped if the electorate had just taken their responsibilities as voters seriously! When the President and his minions speak of Israel and the Mid-East, I sense pure open hatred for Israel. i point out that’s how I feel. I only know when I watch this clown speak and look at his eyes, I see hate. And that is a bad thing to see in anyone’s leader.

    One should not be surprised at the actions of a person who has actually been open about his ideology in the past. That is they shouldn’t be if they weren’t so open to accepting the lies and deceit that come from almost every politician. Almost every action this President has taken seems predicated on one thing, acceptance of the radical Muslim agenda as part of our society. As that, if it came to fruition would mean the end of Israel and our own way of life, one must conclude Israel is in grave danger.
