Don't Judge by Middle Name...Judge by Actions

During an interview televised in Jerusalem, U.S. President Barack Obama told Channel 2 News on Wednesday that he believed Israel would not try to surprise the U.S. with a unilateral attack on Iran.Obama was asked whether he was concerned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would try to attack Iran without clearing the move with the U.S., to which the president replied "I think the relationship between Israel and the U.S. is sufficiently strong that neither of us try to surprise each other, but we try to coordinate on issues of mutual concern."

During the interview Wednesday, when asked about the anxiety many Israelis feel toward him, Obama said that "some of it may just be the fact that my middle name is Hussein, and that creates suspicion." But he added: "Ironically, I've got a Chief of Staff named Rahm Israel Emmanuel. My top political advisor is somebody who is a descendant of Holocaust survivors. My closeness to the Jewish American community was probably what propelled me to the U.S. Senate," Obama said.
What he misses is how his outreach to the "Islamic World" has come at the expense of Israel's security and legitimate existence. His Cairo speech fueled radical fervor when he quoted a Koranic verse that, within the context, incites violent jijad against the Jews. His half-hearted push for sanctions against Iran demonstrated he his less than committed to Israel's security, and now it appears that Obama is becoming more comfortable with the thought of a nuclear Iran, sanctions notwithstanding.

Obama went on to say, "I think that sometimes, particularly in the Middle East, there's the feeling of the friend of my enemy must be my enemy, and the truth of the matter is that my outreach to the Muslim community is designed precisely to reduce the antagonism and the dangers posed by a hostile Muslim world to Israel and to the West," Obama went on to say. He said he believed a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians could be achieved during his current term. "I think [Netanyahu] understands we've got a fairly narrow window of opportunity… We probably won’t have a better opportunity than we have right now. And that has to be seized. It’s going to be difficult."
Again, why is this important? God's everlasting covenant to Abraham ... "I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you." Whether or not we stand with Israel IS IMPORTANT. Pushing to divide the land, according to Joel 3, will hasten the approach of Armageddon. Our best course of action, if Obama continues down this path, is to pray for a spiritual awakening in America. We are in desperate need of it!
