Here is another example of Senator Barack Obama, “simply not getting it.” Today in a trip to Israel he had his good friend Senator “Why the Long Face John” Kerry vouch for the Illinois Senator’s Support of Israel. Gee Whiz, what’s his next move, asking Tony Rezko to give real estate advice? JOHN KERRY WAS NO FRIEND OF ISRAEL EITHER.Does anyone remember when he called the security fence “another barrier to peace?” or when he told Tim Russert that he essentially blamed Israel for 9/11 during the 2004 campaign. Israel’s presence [in the territories that] puts Israel in difficult circumstances and obviously creates an enormous handle for Osama bin Laden for all the radicals and extremists to hang on to.”
This is the guy Obama sends out to defend his position on Israel? And then Kerry gives the nonsense that people think Obama is anti-Israel because they think he is a Muslim. HORSE MANURE! People think Obama is anti-Israel because he hires people who are anti Israel as advisers.
OBAMA is just incapable of understanding:
Kerry vouches for Obama on Israel visitUS Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts said Monday that Barack Obama is a 100 percent supporter of Israel and if elected, he will bring new spirit to Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking efforts. The unsuccessful 2004 Democratic presidential candidate, on a congressional visit to Israel, also said an online campaign questioning Obama’s background and credentials was character assassination. The main allegation is that Obama is a closet Muslim. Kerry also tried to counter concerns expressed by some American Jews that Obama would not support Israel if he is elected president. “This is a man who has been in a minority status in his life, a man who understands what discrimination and even persecution can be and I think he has a really deep personal understanding of what Jewish history is,” Kerry told The Associated Press. “He understands the emotional, cultural, historical, political, strategic connection and I think he honors that.” Kerry helped Obama burst on the national stage by selecting the then-Senate candidate to deliver the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. Kerry has been a strong and vocal backer of Obama’s 2008 campaign. Kerry lost to President George W. Bush in a closely contested election. Obama announced a Mideast visit last week. A stop in Israel could help improve his standing among skeptical Jewish voters. Kerry, a Vietnam war veteran like Republican candidate John McCain, believed overall American Mideast policy would change “regardless of who is elected.” But he said Obama represented a more “sensible approach,” particularly on Iraq and Iran. “He is a 100 percent supporter of Israel, and he is committed to Israel in all the ways that all of us are, but I think he understands that there is a better way to achieve our goals in Iraq,” he said. “He has no illusions about the difficulties in Iran. Iran is a risk, a danger, a threat and a challenge, and we have to deal with it.” Israel considers Iran a dangerous threat because of its nuclear program and its calls to wipe Israel off the map. Kerry said that Bush made many mistakes in the region, but he praised the president and his secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, for refocusing their efforts in the last year of the Bush presidency. Bush has visited Israel twice and Rice has made frequent trips, trying to push Israel and the Palestinians toward a peace agreement. “Ambition with respect to the Middle East is never a bad thing, but I think the clock is ticking very fast and there is a lot of fragility in the process that is out of their control. But I think it is well worth pushing and I’m glad they are,” he said. Kerry, a longtime member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, arrived from Saudi Arabia and is scheduled to meet Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and other Israeli leaders before departing for Egypt.
