|Chip Monck on the Woodstock Stage|
"The warning that I’ve received, you may take it with however many grains of salt you wish, is that the brown acid that is circulating around us is not specifically too good. It’s suggested that you do stay away from that. Of course, it’s your own trip, so be my guest, but please be advised that there is a warning on that one, OK?’" - Chip Monck , Woodstock, 1969Folks President Obama must be going mad, or perhaps he took that "brown acid" people were told not to take at Woodstock. Website JP Updates spoke to David Axelrod about Obama's relationship with the Jews and Israel. Axelrod the man who directed both of Obama's presidential campaigns first trashed Bibi then came out with the startling revelation that his former boss considers himself to be the closest thing to a Jew ever to sit in the oval office.
“The world of politics everywhere is divided into two categories: the first and more common is the people who run for public office because they want to be somebody,” he explained. “A smaller group is made of respectable people who run for public office because they want to do something – something positive. Shape the future in a positive way. I think Benjamin Netanyahu completely falls in the first category. He is a great politician. He knows what he needs to do to get through the next election. But it seems to me that Israel has to think about what they need to do to get through the next generation.”Does Obama even have a conception of what he has done in office? How he is in the midst of selling out Israel and our 'moderate" Arab allies to Iran? Doesn't he know why most of the friendly Arab leaders didn't show up to his little Camp David pow-wow a few weeks ago?
He also recalled Obama venting in a moment of contemplation, telling him, ‘You know, I think I am the closest thing to a Jew that has ever sat in this office. For people to say that I am anti-Israel, or, even worse, anti-Semitic, it hurts.’
When Obama became president he unilaterally broke an agreement between the U.S. and Israel which said that the U.S. would not object to additional housing units in existing settlements outside of Jerusalem and would not object to any settlements in Jerusalem. When Obama broke that agreement the Palestinians made settlements a precondition for negotiations.
When Obama talks about the settlements he ignores that Netanyahu made a very simple offer to the Palestinian President Abbas. If he were to recognize Israel as the Jewish State, Israel will enact a indefinite building freeze. As reported by Al Jazeera the answer from the Palestinians was a resounding no. But still Obama blames Israel.
When he objects to the perception that he is not pro-Israel, President Obama ignores that during the 2012 convention his campaign stripped four pro-Israel planks from the campaign platform and only added back the one about Jerusalem. Not added back were the items about not dealing with Hamas, any deal would re-settle Palestinian refugees outside of Israel in Palestinian territory, and that "it is unrealistic to expect the outcome of final status negotiations to be a full and complete return to the armistice lines of 1949."
He also ignores that his administration refuses to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel a big change from his predecessor President Bush (#43).
In 1995 Congress passed the Jerusalem Embassy Act endorsing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and requiring the US Embassy to move to Jerusalem. But Congress gave the executive branch an out, every six months the State Department/President can request and receive an automatic waiver. A waiver that President Bill Clinton issued to congress every six months as required.
President Bush continued the policy every six months, but in Bush’s case he inserted into the legal jargon a sentence stating, “My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem.” The phrase appeared in all 16 Bush waiver notifications. The Obama administration removed that phrase from their waiver requests.
Obama wrapped up by orating against the scourge of Anti-Semitism. Ignoring the fact that during his first year as president he awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to two Jew-haters, former Irish President Mary Robinson, who ran the 1991 UN Conference on Racism, which turned out to be a conference for every type of Anti-Semitism in the world and Bishop Desmond Tutu a man who not only claims the Jews run the US government but “the Jews thought they had a monopoly on God."
The president's words about Anti-Semitism also ignore that he counts Al Sharpton as an adviser. Sharpton led two Anti-Semitic pogroms in New York City, the Crown Heights riot, and the firebombing of Freddy's Fashion Mart.
If anything the president really considers himself to be the closest thing to a Jew being POTUS than he is also the closest thing to a SELF-HATING Jew ever to sit in the oval office!
