CHANGE– Obama Plays Pretend At AIPAC Today

Barack Obama attended a church for 20 years that supported Hamas and attacked Jews.
Today Barack Obama spoke at AIPAC.

Barack Obama pretended to have a strong record of support for Israel.
…AIPAC members pretended to believe him.

NPR posted his speech to AIPAC from earlier today.
Here are a few clips from this outrageous politician’s outrageous speech:

…There are those who would continue and intensify this failed status quo, ignoring eight years of accumulated evidence that our foreign policy is dangerously flawed. And then there are those who would lay all of the problems of the Middle East at the doorstep of Israel and its supporters, as if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the root of all trouble in the region. These voices blame the Middle East’s only democracy for the region’s extremism. They offer the false promise that abandoning a stalwart ally is somehow the path to strength. It is not, it never has been, and it never will be.

But when Barack Obama was asked last month about Israel’s drag on America, he replied, “…I think is that this constant wound, that this constant sore, does infect all of our foreign policy.”

More Obama at AIPAC:

That starts with ensuring Israel’s qualitative military advantage. I will ensure that Israel can defend itself from any threat — from Gaza to Tehran. Defense cooperation between the United States and Israel is a model of success, and must be deepened. As president, I will implement a Memorandum of Understanding that provides $30 billion in assistance to Israel over the next decade — investments to Israel’s security that will not be tied to any other nation. First, we must approve the foreign aid request for 2009. Going forward, we can enhance our cooperation on missile defense. We should export military equipment to our ally Israel under the same guidelines as NATO. And I will always stand up for Israel’s right to defend itself in the United Nations and around the world.

Obama opposed missile defense.

More Obama at AIPAC:

…There is no room at the negotiating table for terrorist organizations. That is why I opposed holding elections in 2006 with Hamas on the ballot. The Israelis and the Palestinian Authority warned us at the time against holding these elections. But this administration pressed ahead, and the result is a Gaza controlled by Hamas, with rockets raining down on Israel.

Hamas controls Gaza because Israel withdrew from the strip not because of democratic elections.

More Obama at AIPAC:

…The threats to Israel start close to home, but they don’t end there. Syria continues its support for terror and meddling in Lebanon. And Syria has taken dangerous steps in pursuit of weapons of mass destruction, which is why Israeli action was justified to end that threat.

Obama questioned Israel’s bombing of the Syrian nuclear plant last year.

More Obama at AIPAC:

…The danger from Iran is grave, it is real, and my goal will be to eliminate this threat.

Barack Obama told a crowd of 75,000 last month that Iran is not a threat.

More Obama at AIPAC:

When I opposed the war, I warned that it would fan the flames of extremism in the Middle East. That is precisely what happened in Iran — the hard-liners tightened their grip, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was elected president in 2005. And the United States and Israel are less secure.

There is no proof that Ahmadinejad was elected because of the Iraq War. Unfortunately, Iran has its own ambitions independent of the US. Ahmadinejad and the other Iranian leaders are all Israel haters.

More Obama at AIPAC:

Sen. McCain offers a false choice: stay the course in Iraq, or cede the region to Iran. I reject this logic because there is a better way. Keeping all of our troops tied down indefinitely in Iraq is not the way to weaken Iran — it is precisely what has strengthened it. It is a policy for staying, not a plan for victory.

Obama was for surrender in Iraq even if it resulted in genocide.

More Obama at AIPAC:

Only recently have some come to think that diplomacy by definition cannot be tough. They forget the example of Truman, and Kennedy and Reagan. These presidents understood that diplomacy backed by real leverage was a fundamental tool of statecraft. And it is time to once again make American diplomacy a tool to succeed, not just a means of containing failure.

Kennedy’s meeting with Khrushchev was a complete disaster. The Berlin Wall was erected 39 days after the meetings.

More Obama at AIPAC:

If Iran fails to change course when presented with this choice by the United States, it will be clear — to the people of Iran, and to the world — that the Iranian regime is the author of its own isolation…

Iran is already withholding key information .

More Obama at AIPAC:

Their legacy is our inheritance. We must not allow the relationship between Jews and African Americans to suffer. This is a bond that must be strengthened.

Obama has a career record of aligning himself with positions embraced by the Israeli peace camp and its American supporters.

If there is any doubt on Obama’s pro-Palestinian background, this video from yesterday ought to end that discussion:
