Obama, Clinton Intervene to Protect Israeli Diplomatic Interests During Egyptian Riots
(Tikun Olam) -- by Richard Silverstein --
I don’t know about you, but I find remarkable this passage from Al Jazeera’s report on today’s Cairo riots which swirled around the Israeli embassy and spilled over into attacks on neighboring Egyptian security facilities:
US President Barack Obama was first to react, calling on Egypt to protect the embassy and “to honour its international obligations to safeguard the security of the Israeli Embassy.”
A White House statement said that “the President expressed his great concern about the situation at the embassy, and the security of the Israelis serving there”.
The statement said that Obama spoke by telephone to Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and the two agreed “to stay in close touch until the situation is resolved”.
Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, also called Mohamed Kamel Amr, Egypt’s foreign minister, to urge Egypt to meet its Vienna Convention obligations to protect diplomatic property, a senior state department official said.
And this from the NY Times report:
United States officials said Defense Minister Ehud Barak of Israel had called Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who in turn asked the Egyptian military to try to restore order at the embassy.Last I checked, Israel was not a U.S. protectorate, but rather an independent nation. Why Israel should not feel confident appealing directly to Egypt in this case, and instead turned to its evident protectors, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, is beyond me. It seems a grave error on the part of Obama to publicly announce his intervention, as it will further tarnish Israel’s and America’s reputations in the Arab world. We look like the Bobsey Twins or, if you will, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum...
Israel must’ve been petrified that the assault and dumping of documents from embassy windows would expose secret intelligence files to public scrutiny. That’s the only reason I can think that Israel would go to the extraordinary length of calling on big brother to intercede on its behalf. Further, this indicates how much lower Israel’s stature has sunk in the region. Now it has picked huge fights with Turkey (killed nine of its citizens on the Mavi Marmara) and Egypt (killed five of its soldiers after Eilat attack and invaded Egypt in doing so). It of course, threatens Iran with annihilation semi-regularly. The only neighboring state with which it has no major bone to pick (or vice versa) is Jordan.
At this rate, Israel may need for the U.S. to intervene to save it from its worst impulses toward self-destruction. Though I have no confidence that Obama can do this in a way that won’t bring Israel and his own administration into even greater disrepute...MORE...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
This all makes sense once one recognizes that the Democratic Party at the national level is essentially owned by organized Jewry, and that modern American liberalism has easily morphed into liberal fascism under Judeofascism's outsized, malignant, and mendacious influence -- easily because the seeds of its corruption were inherent in its essence from the beginning.
Just as the neocons infected large factions of the money-worshipping GOP with the virulent, Jewish supremacist Zionist ideology, so has organized Jewry infected the left, which after all has been a formative part of the left-wing and left-liberal coalition for decades, and has ratcheted its control of the Democratic Party tighter and tighter over the years.
The Judeofascists work to monopolize, distort, pervert, and ultimately corrupt everything and everyone they touch. It's all part and parcel of their self-serving religious doctrine, and necessary in order that the non-Jewish masses can be forced to support the Jewish supremacist agenda against their own will and best interests. This is accomplished by coercing, distorting, perverting and corrupting non-Jewish leaders, elites and politicians, and seeing to it that only those with a demonstrated willingness to sell their souls to Jewry are elected or appointed to the highest offices in the land.
Because so many materialistic or self-aggrandizing, power-mad, post-Western, post-Christian or pseudo-Christian Americans are willing to sell their souls at any price, completely laughing off or dismissing the eternal consequences, it's certainly not hard for the Judeofascists to find eager soul-sellers at little more than a dime a dozen.
Why would anybody who hasn't sold their own soul invest such energy and passion in preserving this corrupt, depraved, and increasingly degenerate status-quo? It's almost as if they cling ever harder to their Judeofascist masters because on some level they realize the eternal consequences of what they have done, and simply refuse to face up to their coming tribulations.
They should know that, logically speaking, their tribulations can only get worse and worse the harder they cling, and the deeper they dig themselves.
Their one, only and last hope is wholesale confession, forsaking their evil, and dedicating themselves in their last waning years to attempting to repair the damage they have done to their countries, their families, friends and neighbors, and to themselves by selling their souls to the Judeofascists.
Sadly, I can almost guarantee right now that the vast majority will not; the soul-rotting corruption, self-righteous stubbornness, and self-aggrandizing character defects are simply too deep...but no one can say that they weren't warned.
