Weekend At Bennie’s

By Wyatt Earp | March 21, 2010

Earlier this week, the Obama administration scolded Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after his country announced they would build more settlements in East Jerusalem. Apparently, the president is more worried about offending Palestinian terrorists than offending a loyal ally. Naturally, the harsh words caused a tear in the usually genial diplomatic relations.

This continental rift is the subject of this week’s Family Security Matters article. Here’s a sample.:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced a plan to build settlements in East Jerusalem this week, setting off a firestorm of criticism and scorn from Israel’s enemies. Interestingly, the most severe criticism came from the United States and members of the Obama administration. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton “sharply criticized” the decision to build new settlements in the area, and Vice-President Slow Joe Biden “condemned” the Israeli plan.

For those of you keeping score at home, members of the Obama administration refused to condemn Iran when it violently put down opposition after the recent elections. They refused to condemn last year’s Honduran coup and they refused to condemn Abba’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Really? Abba? They refuse to condemn any one of these despicable actions, but they will condemn the Israeli’s decision to build homes on its own soil?

Citizens of both countries were taken aback by the administration’s criticism. Israel is a strong American ally and a beacon of freedom in a highly oppressive area. If Biden and Clinton’s language was intended to scare Netanyahu straight, they failed faster than a Matt Damon film.

    The Obama foreign policy mantra appears to be “No enemy too vile to bow down to, no friend too loyal to rebuke.” I though this guy was aiming to improve our image overseas. Not happening.

    More of the same old crap coming out of Washington. Instead of telling the people we are broke and need to put health care away for a while, they are ramming it down our or up our…….. If you were trying to make peace in a world full of Muslims, would you select a Sec of State that was a woman? Especially one that wears pants suits? MUD

    Netanyahu won’t take any shit from Obama. Probably trying to get a feel what he’s in for once Israel takes out Iran’s nuke facilities.

    Netanyahu is to me the new defacto leader of the free world as far as I’m concerned.

    IF this keeps up, the Israelis are truly going to be off the leash, and when that happens, Katy bar the door!

    Wyatt, good piece. There’s been so much BS to digest since 1/20/09 that I completely forgot about the lack of response to those who wanted free and fair elections in Iran.

    I think you’all should lay off obammy for a little while. This apparent hatred of Israel is probably just a little cover before we go fuck up the Iranians. Nah, on second thought it is probably just what it looks like, obammy being a muslim and an American hater like his so called daddy.
