By VICTOR SHARPE, ARUTZ 7–
Make no mistake: Obama hates Israel and wants to make her weak, but he is also weakening the USA.
Chuck Hagel refused to release documents on sources of his foreign funding because he has purportedly received donations from “Friends of Hamas.” Yet he was saved from senatorial and public exposure by none other than Senator Carl Levin, another Jewish American politician who, like Senator Chuck Schumer, is an enabler of those in the Obama Administration who are patently anti-Israel and even harbor dark thoughts about Jews.
And there are reports that Obama’s CIA nominee, John Brennan, secretly converted to Islam when he was stationed in Saudi Arabia. Again, it is almost a given that these same Jewish senators, Levin and Schumer, will vote him into office to their shame and for much of American Jewry. For them, and their co-religionists in the Senate, what matters above all else is the Democrat party, even though it has swung far to the Left and harbors in its midst many with an animus towards the Jewish state. Now it is left almost solely to conservative Republicans to try and block their nominations.
And so, one must ask why has Obama chosen Hagel, Kerry and Brennan for such critical U.S. security positions? Well, let me answer what is a rhetorical question. Because Obama hates Israel and purposely surrounds himself with apparatchiks who share his baleful world view.
My plea to Israel and to Prime Minister Netanyahu when Obama comes to visit in late March is to put absolutely no faith in whatever assurances he may offer. Obama will not take any serious action against Iran, rather he will instead take action against the interest of the Jewish state. He will not embrace Netanyahu in a positive and true rapport but will demand concessions from Israel that will amount to national suicide.
As long as Obama is president, Israel will not receive any support in defending itself against either nuclear threats from Iran or from Palestinian Arab crimes and aggression. Indeed, Obama wants a Palestinian state and will stop at nothing to see it carved out of the Land of Israel.
Israeli leaders should not want to please Obama by giving in yet again to the disastrous policies of “land for peace” or a two-state-solution.” Both have led Israel into catastrophes and to repeat such mistakes is what others have described as a symptom of insanity. Israel must prevent Iran at all costs from obtaining nuclear weapons capability.
This is the supreme obligation for national survival. The Jewish state must do so regardless of President Obama’s pressure or from that of his subordinates, whether it be from Hagel, Kerry or Brennan.
Meanwhile, the Obama regime is busily abandoning America’s influence in the world by surrendering to Islam. Obama is clearly letting Iran go nuclear. And look at his ominous policy of supplying 20 F-16 fighter planes and 200 Abrams tanks to the evil – yes it is evil – Muslim Brotherhood that now oppressively rules Egypt.
Obama allegedly allowed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya to be murdered, raped and dragged through the streets by Al Qaeda thugs and there are questions swirling in Washington as to where the president was during those fateful eight hours while the siege and needless slaughter went on.
And, as Stella Paul wrote in a recent American Thinker article about Muslim immigration into America during the era of Obama, “Muslims are immigrating at record-breaking speeds, doubling their numbers since 9/11, and making Islam the fastest-growing religion in the United States.”
And she continued, “… we’re pretending that jihadi attacks on our troops at Fort Hood and Little Rock, Arkansas are “workplace violence” and “street crime. And we’re making believe that the dangerous Muslim Brotherhood penetration of our government is really a grand, multicultural celebration.”
Israel must not be lured, therefore, into believing any promise that President Obama will make before, during and after his visit. After all, he is the man who proclaimed at the United Nations, “… the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
What should that tell you? It tells me that America is retreating on all fronts, both domestically and internationally and crippling its armed forces. Without a strong United States the world is fast entering a perilous time and what few allies are left are being abandoned: Israel is no exception.

Ps.83. These are the days foretold. May PM Netanyahu and his government, and all the people of Israel trust only in The Lord and not on their lying “allies” – who are seeking their destruction. The Lord alone will save them and bring them to total victory.
Mr. Sharpe, Bravo! God bless you for speaking the truth so boldly!
Obama is making very serious mistakes when he does not back Israel to the detrement of our beautiful America. But, we must remember that G-d does not need America or any other country to defend Isreal for He will fight for them and will be glorified in them. After all, why should G-d use a nation who has turned their back on him and spat in his face? I believe that America is fast coming under the judgement of G-d Almighty and why shouldn’t we. For we have violated all of his commandments and gone our own way. May G-d be with PM Netanyahu and his government and may any bombs or any armies sent with the express purpose of annihilating Isreal be turned back on theie own head. Scripture records that it already has happened when he defended his children from those warring against them. As well as praying for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem I pray too for America that those governing us will wake up before it’s too late. Psalm 137:5-6 If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleve to the roof of my mouth: if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.
Psalm 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
Thank you for telling it like it is. I fear for this once great country. We need a revival very badly here.
Though it is very true that God does not need America in His defense of Israel, there is no getting around the sadness many must have at America’s loss of its’ once solid moral compass and being a force for good in the world. I sure do feel the pain of it. Nation states with definable characteristics are what God wants. He surely demonstrated that at Babel in the Bible book of Genesis. For all nation states to be overrun by Islam and under the wretched thumb of sharia is Satan’s idea. President Obama has just never had that sense of patriotism and gratitude for being an American. It is going to get very, very dark before the dawn. Jesus, when He comes, will surely have His mighty work cut out for Him! In the meantime, keep sounding that clear alarm, Victor Sharpe. Jesus wants us to be alert and know the times we are in; you help us do that.
