Recently it has been brought to my attention that when I say that Barack Hussein Obama “threw Israel to the wolves” on 19 May 2011, that is not a Fact, but rather an Opinion.
Oops! My bad…. Holy Crap! Let me see if I can figure out how to fix this egregious error.
Okay. It is a Fact that Barack Obama stated on May 19, 2011, that:
“The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.”
(It’s also a Fact that on 24 May 2011, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “That’s not going to happen.” Just sayin’….)
It is my Opinion that Barack Hussein Obama is hostile toward Israel and that by making the statement that he did (see above), he created an even more dangerous environment for the safety of Israel.
Okay…now the semantics* are out of the way….
Israel is America’s only one true ally in the Middle East. (Fact!)
Israel is a democracy.** (Fact!)
Israel is NOT a theocracy.*** (Fact!)
Christians, Arabs, Jews and Muslims are all allowed to live amongst one another in peace in Israel. (Fact!)
Arabs living in Israel even have voting rights. (Fact!)
Christians, however, are not so lucky in other Middle East countries.
It is a fact that Christians are being persecuted and put to death in many Middle East countries.****
The Coptic Christians in Egypt are in great danger.
Barack Hussein Obama has expressed great hope for the nascent “democracies” in the Middle East in countries where dictators are being overthrown.
However (and this is my Opinion based on reading certain Facts), the jury is still out on who will be elected to replace the ousted dictators.
Take Egypt for instance. The Muslim Brotherhood is more than ready and willing to seize power in Egypt.
If the MB is “democratically” elected in September as the governing body of Egypt, that will be the only smattering of “democracy” that the Egyptians ever experience.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 in Egypt by Hassan al-Banna. The MB’s slogan is “Islam is the solution.”
Oh well, Muslims you say…very peaceful charming people. (Such a statement would be an Opinion.)
But Islam IS a theocracy. It is NOT like any other “religion.” When a Muslim says that Allah is the only god, they MEAN that Allah is the only god.
All Muslims are governed by Sharia Law. Sharia Law is based on the Qur’an. The Qur’an calls for the imposition of Sharia Law on all people and nations whether they want it or not.
Anyone who is not a Muslim is an “Infidel.” Infidels are punishable by death. Some deaths are worse than others, especially for Jews, gays and women.
An Islamic death sentence can mean you’re beheaded, buried in the ground up to your shoulders and stoned to death, burned alive or hung. Heck, you could even be executed with a plain old gun too.
Even a Muslim who converts to Christianity would be considered an “Infidel.” And well…there rolls another head….
Which brings me to “Palestinians,” the darlings of the Code Pink liberals.
There are both Christian and Muslim “Palestinians.”
Most Muslim “Palestinians” are taught from the time they are small CHILDREN to hate Jews. According to the Qur’an, Jews are akin to “apes and pigs.” (Fact!)
Muslim “Palestinians” watch TV shows in which Jews are portrayed as evil and wicked people. (Fact!)
The “Palestinians” who whine and moan about wanting their land back are merely expressing an opinion…because in truth (that is, as a matter of Fact), there has never EVER been a nation called “Palestine.”
“Palestinians” will never be happy until Israel is annihilated. If they wanted peace, there would have been peace already. (That is my Opinion…an opinion based upon many Factual things that I have read.)
In 2006, the “Palestinians” in Gaza elected Hamas to govern them. Hamas is a terrorist extremist Jew-hating group of ragheads (“raghead” is an Opinion; the rest is Fact).
Hamas was founded in 1987. “Hamas” is an acronym of gobbledygook Arab scribble that means the “Islamic Resistance Movement.”
The 1988 Charter of Hamas calls for the replacement of Israel with an Islamic Palestinian state. Hamas does not believe that Israel has the right to exist.
Barack Hussein Obama, on May 19, 2011, called for Israel to negotiate with Hamas…a TERRORIST group that lobs rockets into Israel and that hates Jews.
So! Based upon the Fact that BHO told Israel to go back to those indefensible pre-1967 borders AND that he told Israel to negotiate with Jew-hating terrorists, it is my OPINION that BHO is hostile toward Israel and that he has indeed “thrown Israel to the wolves.”
