Leading into his major trip to the UK, Israel and Poland to highlight his foreign policy competence and positions, US Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday lashed out at US President Barack Obama for “lecturing Israel’s leaders.”
“President Obama is fond of lecturing Israel’s leaders,” Romney said. “The people of Israel deserve better than what they have received from the leader of the free world. And the chorus of accusations, threats, and insults at the United Nations should never again include the voice of the president of the United States.”
One of Romney’s core messages was attacking Obama’s relationship with Israel, a common theme for Republican candidates during the primary.
Romney was cutting in his criticism of how Obama has dealt with Israel, accusing the president of neglect and “shabby treatment” of a key ally.
The Republican presidential candidate also slammed Obama, alleging without mentioning specifics, that officials in his administration had leaked details of American cyber-attacks on Iran, and for, as he perceived, not succeeding sufficiently at undermining Iranian efforts to develop nuclear weapons.
“There is no greater danger in the world today than the prospect of the ayatollahs in Tehran possessing nuclear weapons capability,” Romney said. “Yet for all the talks and conferences, all of the extensions and assurances, can anyone say we are farther from this danger now than four years ago?”
Romney was scheduled to host a fund-raising event in Jerusalem during his upcoming trip.
Delegates are set to fly in from the US for the event on July 29, which a Republican source said would be “a small meeting, but a big fund-raiser” as the Tisha Be’av fast ends. Immediately after the fund-raising meeting, Romney will host a conference in Jerusalem, where he will lay out his Middle East policy.
Romney plans to visit the UK for two days, attending the opening ceremony of the London Olympics on July 27, before flying to Israel.
The Republican candidate will stay in Jerusalem for two days, Israeli Republican political consultant Jonny Daniels told the Post, during which Romney will meet with President Shimon Peres, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, opposition chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich (Labor) and Palestinian Authority leaders.

I am glad to see Romney stand up for Israel. Obama is anti-Israel and pro-islamic. Perhaps Clinton and Obama have been embarrassed by their poor treatment of Israel and have decided to give $70 million to Israel defense budget. I want more leaders to stand up and say NO
MORE aid to the haters, Egypt, Palestinians, Afganistan, etc. any who call the destruction of Israel and America.
Israel is America’s greatest ally in the hope for freedom and human rights. I pray that Mitt Romney is elected and we can turn around this irrational rush to anti-semitism. The spirit of anti-Christ operates from a position of destruction for all under a delusion of humanistic self-determinism. Their inane mantra – “Better to rule in hell than to serve in heaven.” It is apparent that our current administration is compelled by this evil spirit.
WE THE PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA … SHOULD DEMAND NO MORE aid $$$$$$$, weapons or special treatment to Islamic countries/terrorists (in the U.S. nor outside i.e. ~ MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, HAMAS ect.). All are terrorist organizations/countries/states focused on the destruction of tiny Israel. Look at a map and find that 22 hate-filled Muslim countries surround ISRAEL and continue their quest to TERRORIZE and DESTROY ISRAEL (…Wipe Israel off the map…) and brutally slaughter Jewish people worldwide. This “religion of peace”, even kills and ignores the great needs of their own people whom they have forced into “refugee camps” to achieve their PROPAGANDA goals in the media. Great photos ops, huh guys! Pretty slick!!!
ISLAM is not a religion, it is an intimidating evil force from its very beginnings. It is a Cult of Death and Violent Destruction, decapitating citizens who join a religion or resist Sharia Law as recently seen on Egyptian TV soon after the new leader Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi claimed power in Egypt. (Man was beheaded on live TV sending Muslim Brotherhoods’ message straightaway). Clearly, this validates my claim that they rule by intimidation, brain washing (re-education ~ teaching little children to hate and KILL THE JEWS). What religion ??? would send little kids to summer camps to learn to fire weapons, make and set off bombs, to believe that they can be sacrifice themselves to their god (ugh) allah by blowing themselves up. What a fun summer break. NOT! Their kids cartoons on TV are filled with lies and hatred about Israel and more. This is child abuse to the very max!!!
The American people should DEMAND that all Mosques immediately be inspected that are allowed to perpetrate their hate filled cult within our borders. (MOSQUES = Trojan Horse). What do you suppose we would find within? Certainly not toys for tots nor coloring books for the kiddies!!! Are we so naive?
America ~ TIME TO WAKE UP, or your daughters and granddaughters will be ALL be wearing Burkas whether they want to or not ~ assuming that they live long enough to get one. AND Your sons and grandsons heads will be sent to you parcel post for resisting to defend their own country and all those who are FREEDOM LOVING.
May God help us against this spreading evil Mr. Romney.
Vatican Osservatore Romano editor Vian said on May 18th that Obama “is not a pro-abortion president” – proves stand to encourage Catholics to breed and to encourage non-Catholics to abort out of spite. The Vatican likes the abortion status quo in the USA for this reason. Their purpose is only conquest, not faith. Carolignian Brzezinski spawned Zia al Haq, Khomeini, and bin Laden – breaks up superpowers via Aztlan and Kosovo as per Joel Garreau’s Nine Nations. Brzezinski, Buckley and Buchanan winked anti-Semitic votes for Obama, delivered USA to Pope’s feudal basket of Bamana Republics. Michael Pfleger and Joe Biden prove Obama is the Pope’s boy. Obama is half a Kearney from County Offaly in Ireland. Talal got Pontifical medal as Fatima mandates Catholic-Muslim union against Jews (Francis Johnson, Great Sign, 1979, p. 126), Catholic Roger Taney wrote Dred Scott decision. John Wilkes Booth, Tammany Hall and Joe McCarthy were Catholics. Now Catholic majority Supreme Court. Catholics Palmisano, Grasso, Damato, Langone, Mozilo, Ranieri, Dioguardi, Palmieri destroyed American industry with their casuistrous ethics. Subprime construction mobsters had hookers deliver mortgages to banks. McCain’s Keeting started it all. Brzezinski set up Arab Spring and Zia, so why surprised bin Laden was in Sineurabia code? Pakistanis descend from weasels who sold their Hindu brothers into hundreds of years of islamic slavery. That is why FIAT supplied Iran and every Catholic is like a Manchurian Candidate programmed to kill their best friend of they felt the “Holy Father” required it. They find American cars too advanced to use or their mechanics to fix. Ellis Island Popecrawlers brought in FDR. Since Pio Nino banned voting they consider our Constitution and laws immoral and illegitimate and think nothing of violating them or passing legislation that undermine them. They believe that they can not be fully loyal to their superiors if they do not go the extra stretch and break the law intentionally. Their slovenly, anti-intellectual work ethic produces vacuous, casuistrous blather and a tangle of hypocritical, contradictory regulations. Their clubhouse purges provided praetorian training for corporate misgovernance. They sided with the enemy in both World Wars and now, too. Every American boom has been caused by an Evangelical Revival and every major Depression by the domination of new Catholic immigrants. NYC top drop outs: Hispanic 32%, Black 25%, Italian 20%. NYC top illegals: Ecuadorean, Italian, Polish. Ate glis-glis but blamed plague on others, now lettuce coli. Their bigotry most encouraged terror yet they reap most security funds. View this life as casuistry training to survive purgatory. Rabbi circumcises lower, Pope upper brain. Tort explosion by glib casuistry. Hollywood Joe Kennedy had Bing Crosby proselytize. Bazelya 1992 case proves PLO-IRA-KLA links. Our enemy is the Bru666elles Sineurabia feudal Axis and the only answer is alliance with Israel and India. They killed six million Jews, a million Serbs, half a million freemasons, a quarter million Gypsies, they guided the slaughter of Assyrians and Armenians, and promoted the art of genocide throughout the world now they are relentless in their year to canonize nazi pope. 9/11 was Yugo Crimean blowback: Napoleon started the crusade against the Photius Heresy to avenge his uncle, Clinton wanted to cover Pacelli’s war crimes. They had no qualms hijacking American policy in Vietnam or Balkans to papal ends, but when American interests opposed those of the papacy in Iraq and Iran, they showed their true fangs (Frum, Unpatriotic Conservatives).
