Osama Obama sucks-up to Israel

Obama: Israel justified in providing for security
Fri Jun 20, 2008 11:29pm EDT

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 20 (Reuters) - U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama said that Israel is justified in providing for its security amid the "extraordinary threat" posed to it by Iran.

He spoke after The New York Times quoted unnamed U.S. officials as saying that Israel had carried out a large military exercise this month that appeared to be a rehearsal for a potential bombing attack on Iran's nuclear facilities.

Obama, a Democrat who is running against Republican John McCain in the November election, was asked at a news conference in Jacksonville, Florida whether Israel was right to carry out the exercise.

"Without access to the actual detailed intelligence, I want to be careful about characterizing what was done and whether it was appropriate or not," Obama, an Illinois senator, said.

But he added that the Jewish state was right to be concerned about the anti-Israel comments of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and about Tehran's support for Hezbollah and Hamas.

"And so there is no doubt that Iran poses an extraordinary threat to Israel and Israel is always justified in making decisions that will provide for its security," Obama said.

The Times said more than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighters took part in the maneuvers over the eastern Mediterranean and Greece in the first week of June.

It said the exercise appeared to be an effort to focus on long-range strikes and illustrates the seriousness with which Israel views Iran's nuclear program.

Israel's ambassador to the United States, Sallai Meridor, also talked of the threat posed by Iran in an interview with CBS News.

"We cannot take this threat lightly and as our prime minister recently said Israel will not tolerate a nuclear Iran," Meridor told the U.S. television network.

Asked how much time was left before the diplomatic window closes, Meridor replied, "Less today than we had yesterday, and it's, it's running out." (Reporting by Caren Bohan; Editing by Eric Walsh)

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

As history repeats again and again they are their own worst enemy. We are forced to ride this ride of invested interests.

Was it Iran or Ahmanutjob that said that? Remember Iraq? We punished a whole nation for one man because he said "bad things" about and towards Israel.

This whole US and Israel vs. Muslims and Arabs is just childish. There is a solution, and the US is being manipulated by both sides, which is keeping anyone from working on the actual solution. Used to be the USSR was in the mix keeping things going, but now it is mainly Israel and the Middle East extremists on the other side. Israel enjoys this perpetual reinforcement of the position as closest to America's heart, and is engaged in activities to demonstrate that position to the Muslims and Arabs on a regular basis. It is part of Israel's identity. The whole arrangement is childish.

It reminds me of Sophie's Choice. The US is Sophie and in the present arrangement, Israel is the son and the rest of the Middle East is the daughter. What Israel needs to understand is that things change. Keeping us on the brink of World War, with our economy falling apart as their actions stimulate the new highs on oil futures pricing, and the alienation of the OPEC chiefs that comes with being a Jewish Mom to an only son, Israel needs to watch for the change when Sophie picks the daughter instead of the son. If there is no negotiated solution to Israel's problems with the neighboring countries and political factions, like America's distaste for costly quagmire wars of choice, America may just make different choice one day.
