The day Israel stood still
On March 17th a country two thirds the size of Maryland chose to stay with its current leader Benjamin Netanyahu. With the votes finally tallied Netanyahu and his Likud party overwhelming beat back Isaac Herzog and the Zionist Union. Ironically America’s left of the left press had Herzog winning by a considerable margin. American media misrepresented the will of Israel’s majority with stories fabricated to negate Netanyahu’s popularity at home. Some media outlets chose to distort exit polls perhaps in an attempt to discourage late voters as it does in this country. In the aftermath the Jewish State solidified behind a leader whose message is consistent: Israel must and will survive regardless of external forces attempting to undermine the nation.
Reports have circulated that American tax dollars were spent by the Obama Administration to subvert the Israeli election. These news reports indicated people close to Obama established themselves in some manner or form in Israel with a singular purpose to bring Netanyahu down. Their failure brought a certain level of consternation to a White House already in disarray over Netanyahu’s recent presentation before Congress. Not to be out maneuvered by the Prime Minister our narcissus-in-chief waited 24 hours then revealed his newest plan to bring Israel to its knees. Obama’s hate for the Jewish State has no bounds. Under consideration are potential plans to weaken America’s close relationship with Israel which has lasted seven decades. In the end nothing will change except the man in the White House.
America’s foreign policy has been chaotic since Obama took office.
Present negotiations with Iran, to slow their nuclear weapons development, will only forestall for a brief period an outcome inevitable under current treaty discussions. Netanyahu brought this message to Congress. Yet President Obama chided the Prime Minister’s speech deriding its contents as unhelpful to current exchanges with Iranian leadership. In reality Obama stopped listening to the very people who have insight into the Iranian terrorist regime.
President Obama’s difficulty grasping who the aggressors are and who are America’s friends is obvious. Worse he believes loosening sanctions against Iran to placate them will expedite an arms treaty. The road President Obama and Secretary Kerry are pursuing is disastrous for this country and Israel. Further it may set the seeds for war because Iran cannot be trusted to follow the tenets of any negotiated treaty. Instead any solution generated by politicians will guarantee a nuclear Iran.
President Obama is considering a beach front property in Hawaii for his post White House days. In this compound he will be safe from any attack by Iran on mainland USA. He will be able to sit back and watch the mushroom clouds form. As Barack looks to the left at Michelle he will note that Netanyahu was right. Iran cannot be trusted.

Devoid of leadership America looks elsewhere
America is starving for leadership. Weakness has been the center piece of the Obama Administration. Lacking backbone and a clear vision for this country President Obama has faltered on the international stage and at home. Current political philosophy trends away from democratic principles towards a vacuum of logic denying the reality before us. Recently Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel, awoke this sleeping giant to the threatening surge of terrorism which could reach ours shores soon. His intuitive speech to Congress was not only elegant and informative it pointed to an enemy that is engulfing large segments of the Middle East. For over forty minutes the Prime Minister described the true nature of terrorism which in recent times has killed thousands including many Americans. Those lucky enough to be seated before him were provided with spectacular glimpse of a war we should and must become involved. He noted the face of the enemy has many names yet one goal to devour all those who oppose their religious extremism. Netanyahu’s primary mission on American soil may have come with a personal price to himself here and at home. Yet he felt the moral imperative to state his case. Netanyahu noted any agreement with Iran, to stop their nuclear program, would end in a catastrophe for both our nations. Sadly, too many, did not heed the call to listen to his words. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2015/03/02/netanyahu-iran-speech-why-it-important-for-congress-to-at-least-listen-to/
President Obama, in the aftermath of Netanyahu’s speech, was resolute that his negotiations with Iran would proceed. He is oblivious to numerous indicators that his efforts would fail badly. As sponsors of terrorism globally Iran has displayed it wants war over diplomacy. Leadership is not Obama’s strong point. Blindly pursuing a negotiated path with this rogue nation is incongruous with the terroristic reality that lies before this country. The underpinnings of weak leadership in the present Administration have driven this nation in the wrong direction providing our enemies with an edge at the expense of our friends. When the United States could have made a difference in the Middle East Obama’s silence was deafening. As ISIS and its affiliates engulf large sections of this area they are aware of their friend in the White House. Netanyahu is a World leader bent on protecting his country from any and all enemies that comes to their gates. Obama’s inclination is antithetically different. He invites the enemy in to dismantle the infrastructure of a nation that has shed too much blood in war. http://nypost.com/2015/03/01/why-obamas-iran-deal-is-a-path-to-war/ Leadership is pivotal to successful nation building and its defense. America is devoid of leadership. Yet for a moment in time everyone stood still as a real leader addressed Congress.
