Far Left Israel Hater Jeffrey Goldberg Attacks Netanyahu For Defending Jewish Homeland

Yesterday, Barack Obama told American ally Israel to give Old Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the most sacred sites of Christianity, to the Hamas-Fatah terror alliance.
In response to this suicidal proposition that would result ultimately in the destruction of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Barack Obama to take it back.

The Golden Gates (the two enclosed arches on the Eastern Wall) were cemented shut centuries ago to prevent the prophets from returning to the Temple Mount.

This upset the left – How dare the Jews defend their homeland!

Today, Israel-hater Jeffrey Goldberg lashed out at Netanyahu for defending the Jewish homeland. Goldberg compared Netanyahu to anti-American Marxist Hugo Chavez.

For whatever reason, I tend to react strongly when a foreign leader disrespects the United States, and its President. I didn’t like it when Hugo Chavez of Venezuela insulted President Bush; I don’t like listening to Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan lecture the U.S. on its sins, and I’m not happy when certain Pakistani leaders gin-up righteous indignation about American behavior when it was their country that served as a refuge for the greatest mass murderer in American history.

And so I was similarly taken aback when I read a statement from Prime Minister Netanyahu yesterday that he “expects to hear a reaffirmation from President Obama of U.S. commitments made to Israel in 2004, which were overwhelmingly supported by both House of Congress.”

So Netanyahu “expects” to hear this from the President of the United States? And if President Obama doesn’t walk back the speech, what will Netanyahu do? Will he cut off Israeli military aid to the U.S.? Will he cease to fight for the U.S. in the United Nations, and in the many international forums that treat Israel as a pariah?

I don’t like this word, “expect.” Even if there weren’t an imbalance between these two countries — Israel depends on the U.S. for its survival, while America, I imagine, would continue to exist even if Israel ceased to exist — I would find myself feeling resentful about the way Netanyahu speaks about our President.

This isn’t the first time that Goldberg has attacked Israel or its leader.
After the devastating fires that killed 42 Israelis in the the city of Kyriat Karmel, Goldberg urged his readers to turn their backs on Israel.
The fire was started by two Palestinians.

    Goldberg is a very bad Jew and an anti American bourgeois Bolshevik liberal to boot…

  • Sharon Yancey

    Self hating Jews are despicable; God save Israel and America.

  • Barry isn’t just shaking his fist at Israel, he’s shaking it in the face of God Himself. When the world condems Israel, we all better get ready for what will follow.

  • donh

    Note the veiled threat of dropping all US support for Israel in international councils…and the humiliating suggestion Israel has no power to oppose our will. I expect better from my government. I expect pride in our support of Israel .

  • bigkahuna

    Israel should tell The Empty Suit in Chief ….. They will go back to the 1967 borders when O’bigears goes back to the 1967 Budget.

  • averagemelon

    I love your post, Bigkahuna!

  • Meg

    Has anyone figured out yet why Obama supports the Muslims and is turning his back on our ally?

  • RedBeard

    How can Goldberg compare the Chavez thing with Bibi’s comments? Only by being deliberately disingenuous, or by being as stupid as a stump. Take your pick. Or go for both, since he’s a leftie.

  • bitterclinger

    “Has anyone figured out yet why Obama supports the Muslims and is turning his back on our ally?”

    “The Won”, being buddies with Wright, Farrakahn, Soros, Ayres and Dorn, just to name a few.


    Goldberg would appear to be odumbo’s new golfing buddy…two peas in a pod

  • Faye

    #5 bigkahuna I vote your comment for being the best of the week.
    Meg there are many factors why Obama hates Israel. He was raised a Muslim, for 20 years he sat under Rev Wright who also hates Jews, he has self hating Jews as his closest advisers. Actually it would be a miracle if Obama did not hate Israel with his history and the company he keeps.

  • Noovuss

    Jeffrey Goldberg is a Kapo………….

  • raddave9

    Interestingly enough Mr. Goldberg was not defensive when other countries spoke badly about his president and his country when President Bush was in charge. I haven’t gone back yet in search through his articles (I’m very hesitant to do that,because I don’t want to wade through the stupid) but I seem to recall him applauding the euro-trash when they bashed W for his various decisions.

  • Thingamajig

    That’s good. @bigkahuna.#5.

    I can’t think of anything else I’d add.



  • templar knight

    “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”. And that means the Lord of Israel, not the lord of the Muslims. Enough said. I stand in solidarity with you, and Israel, Thingamajig.

  • Joanne

    So Goldberg thinks that because America has given the State of Israel support that she should have to do what ever Obama says to do. Obama is not the boss of the world, although, he seems to thinks he can commands leaders to step down or not. Screw Obama – he is not the US President – not one single thing he has signed is legitimate.

  • gus

    Obama does not worship God. Obama relates to MUZZTARDS because he is seeking his Daddy and his Daddy’s approval. Jeffery Goldberg is just another HIPSTER-DOOFUS. He is contrarian toward any tradtional values. In SHORT, Goldberg is a LIBTARD. I cracked up when Goldberg said he didn’t like foreign leaders criticizing our President. What a lying sack of sh!T.

  • wolf t.

    It is time for the Jews in the West Bank to declare themselves the sovereign State of Judea. Then let the arabs go scratch.

    As for goldberg, well, God has a special hell reserved for self-hating Jews. He is a product of parents who refused to educate their children about their religion. Goldberg isn’t the first and won’t be the last of this type. Casper Weinberberger hated his jewish roots and jewish last name, and took it out on Israel. Father Isaac produced the poisonous Esau, Abraham before him Ishmael. Hell, Torquemada of spanish inquisition fame was a grandson of converted jews! As is Ahmadinejhad today. Not to mention Ghaddaffi.

    Don’t believe me? You can look it up!

  • Bert

    Has anyone brought up “appeasement” yet, and made comparisons to Chamberlain, Czechoslovakia, Hitler and WWII when referencing the POTUS’s latest betrayal?

  • Nanna1

    I also resent the fact that Obywon said that “The United States thinks.”
    This isn’t right. He doesn’t speak for the majority of people here. He speaks for Hamas.!!

  • joscefi

    “And if President Obama doesn’t walk back the speech, what will Netanyahu do? Will he cut off Israeli military aid to the U.S.? Will he cease to fight for the U.S. in the United Nations, and in the many international forums that treat Israel as a pariah?”

    The simple answer to both rhetorical snarks might be ‘yes’!

    As Alexander Haig put it, “Israel is the largest American aircraft carrier in the world that cannot be sunk, does not carry even one American soldier, and is located in a critical region for American national security.”.

    Add to that Israel’s intelligence gathering value to the U.S., and it’s military technological innovation, and the question of cutting off “Israeli military aid to the U.S.” becomes serious.

    As for “Will he cease to fight for the U.S. in the United Nations…”, Israel’s support for U.S. positions in the U.N. has been more consistent than the U.S. support for Israel,

    “In 2004, Jordan was the Arab nation that voted with the United States most often, and that was on only 30 percent of the resolutions. The other Arab countries, including allies Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt, voted against the United States 80 percent of the time or more. As a group, in 2004, the Arab states voted against the United States on just under 80 percent of the resolutions. By contrast, Israel has consistently been America’s top UN ally. Israel voted with the U.S. 100 percent of the time in 2004, outpacing the support levels of major U.S. allies such as Great Britain, France and Canada by more than 30 percent.” http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/myths/mf13.html

    Not that any of this will alter the opinion of Jeffrey Goldberg, or those of his ilk.

  • sandy

    No wonder Jeffrey Goldberg and Obama get along — Goldberg is a self hating Jew and Obama is a self hating black man.

  • jony101

    Israel is more important to the US then the US is to Israel. It can defend itself without US assistance, It has the capability to destroy all it’s neighbors. It’s biggest enemy right now isn’t it’s psychotic neighbors, they have always been there talking the talk. It’s the psychotic people in the whitehouse that are more dangerous. More and more I believe we have a closet muslim in the whitehouse. Pastor Manning has always labeled him a muslim, maybe he was right after all.

  • Bert

    President Theodore Roosevelt stated:

    “To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

  • JPeden

    A Progressive’s ugly, pre-Enlightenment Brain strikes again! [But at least maybe the Missing Link is not really missing?]

    Apparently Goldberg doesn’t like the same form of “diplomacy” and public, pre-emptive “negotiation” that his very own latte’ Commie Cult Leader, Barack “Mr. Diplomaceh” Obama, just initiated himself?

    But then, no doubt Goldberg “likes” Obama’s announced refusal to uphold America’s 2004 agreement with Israel concerning maintaining the integrity of the post-war 1967 borders?

    Then there’s Goldberg’s reference to “a refuge for the greatest mass murderer in American history,” placing Obama’s killing of OBL back within the realm of being a response to a crime; so does Goldberg “like” the fact, therefore, that Obama has just committed an “against our values” murder?

  • Oldpuppymax

    So this leftist “reacts strongly when a foreign leader DISRESPECTS the United States and its president.” Now THAT’S funny!!! Who in the WORLD is more disrespectful of the US than leftists like Goldberg! And who has shown more disrespect for US presidents–Republican presidents, that is–than leftists like Goldberg??!!!

    If this hypocritical phony is really upset about people who “dis” the US, why doesn’t he begin with his boy, Hussein??!!!

  • Radegunda

    “I don’t like this word, ‘expect.’” — Does that include when a leftist “expects” and DEMANDS that Israel hand over its most sacred sites to its most vicious enemies, and that Israel make itself more vulnerable to those who want to destroy it? Didn’t think so.

    Netanyahu expressed displeasure at Obama’s threatening statements toward Israel. Comparing that to Chavez’s “it smells like the devil in here” is stupid and/or dishonest. And, is there any record of Goldberg expressing the slightest tinge of annoyance when Chavez or anyone else attacked Bush?

  • Jerry C

    “Israel depends on the U.S. for its survival, while America, I imagine, would continue to exist even if Israel ceased to exist”

    Why is it that after I read that stupid comment, Titanic quotes came to mind?

    Unsinkable/God himself could not sink it/I cannot conceive of any vital disaster happening to this vessel. Modern shipbuilding has gone beyond that.

    May God help America, ’cause I know He’ll save Israel.

  • Patriot

    Agree JerryC, we should raise taxes on Americans so that we can give to Israel. After all, America is not a sovereign nation, but instead is simply a vessel for another nation according to the Scripture. But only the King James version, not that heathen Catholic version.

  • Dave in NYC

    Goldberg is a pretty unique guy and I think you should actually know something about him before calling him a far-left Israel hater. First off–he’s not far left, he’s really more of a conservative. He was a strong supporter of Bush on the Iraq War and is absolutely hated on left-wing blogs, having repeatedly criticized the left for its stance on the Middle East. Also, unlike many self-proclaimed supporters of Israel, Goldberg actually moved to Israel and volunteered for the Israeli Defense Forces.

    I think his comments on the fires and on Netanyahu are both petty and misguided, but please don’t lump Goldberg in with the left and don’t call him an Israel hater.

    Dave in NYC, Jeff Goldberg is a leftist and he along with a bunch of other leftist supported GWB’s foray into Iraq until they flip-flopped due to trying to make political gains. Can you produce any other evidence that Goldberg is Conservative?

    Wow, you people are really really scary. When I visited Israel in the late 80’s, our tour guide opined that the far right/ulta-orthodox were eventually going to destroy the country. I was just a kid, so i didnt really know what he was talking about. Now, I’m starting to believe him.

  • Will

    This entire post is a lie from start to finish. Jeffrey Goldberg is ANYTHING but a member of the “far-left”–he is a right-of-center pundit, and he regularly attacks critics of Israel on his own blog. This post is so far from reality I have a hard time believing it is not a parody.

    Wow. I was laughing at the comments at first, but then realized they were serious. You guys are terrifying!

    This is the reason I lock my door at night.

    Its interesting b/c both Andrew Sullivan (which you have a link to a previous article criticizing Goldberg and Sullivan) and Goldberg are both on the right (though Sullivan is Moderate Gasp! a moderate conservative, what a traitor). As a Jewish-American I support Israel a 100%, but I agree with Goldberg. I wouldn’t want a U.S. President to publicly disrespect an Israeli Prime Minister like Netanayahu disrespected Obama (yesterday and today). It would be disrespecting Israel to say that its leaders shouldn’t be held to the same standards.

    “Yesterday, Barack Obama told American ally Israel to give Old Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the most sacred sites of Christianity, to the Hamas-Fatah terror alliance.”

  • BigP

    Patriot is right! And why shouldn’t Obama jump at the commands of Bibi? In fact, isn’t the purpose of the United States to tax it’s citizens to keep sending money into a country that has a strong economy and, well, ya know, nukes? We need to cut federal spending (except for Israel) and stop dumping federal money on welfare cases (except Israel) so we can keep giving $$$ to Bibi and his Likud posse. How dare he speak out for previously agreed upon terms? Because we all know that when Netanyahu speaks, all of the west should snap to attention, caps in hand, apologizing for something that hasn’t happened.

We keep thinking that you’ll soon rapture yourselves into some weird compressed corner of the web where you keep piling idiocies upon foolishness until you collapse into a black hole of utter wingnut compression that no moronic claim can escape and a teaspoonful weighs as much as ten Heritage Foundations. We keep thinking that the blockheaded christianist commentariat at these cesspools can’t get any more inbred or uncritically ravenous for formulaic bleatings and new very clever corruptions of the President’s name.

    We still think that.


  • Ed

    This thread is extraordinary. Do none of you realise that the Palestinians are human beings too? And that many of them suffered when the state of Israel was created?

    I support the existence of Israel and hope that the country has a long and prosperous future. I also hope that we can have an independent Palestine which will exist peacefully alongside Israel.

    I never expected to see peace in Ireland. But it happened. I never thought the Berlin Wall would fall. But it did. So I pray that one day we can have peace, justice and stability in the Middle East too. Everyone will have to make difficult sacrifices, but as our Lord once said:

    “Blessed is the peacemaker.”

    By the way, President Obama is not a Muslim. He never was a Muslim. He was born in Hawaii. He doesn’t hate himself. He was legitimately elected President.

    LOL this has to be one of the most absurd articles on this conflated and total misrepresented subject I have read so far. And the comments are equally priceless, not to mention clueless. It is as if no one actually heard or read the speech or has paid any attention to the fact that US position on the ’67 lines as a starting point for negotiations has been the same for years and years and years. You are just hearing it out loud for a change.

    And Goldberg a Israel hating liberal? I am on the floor in hysterics. Just because he thinks Bibi is a fool, which he is, all of a sudden this conservative, very staunch supporter of Israel is now a self hating liberal Jew. Too damn funny!

    JSFOX- you are spot on!

  • TEG

    Playing with these scriptural literalists is not good for Jews, and it’s not good for Israel. How many of them want nothing more than the destruction of this world as they predict in their so-called “new testament,” and are willing to exploit the Jewish people and the nation of Israel in creating the conditions for their “Armageddon”?

    The motives of such people are dishonest, but they hide behind Christians who are sincerely supportive of Israel. Such faithless friends as posit their “support” for the Jewish people while secretly hoping for our ultimate destruction are no better than those Muslims who openly wish to destroy us.

    Yasher Koach, Jeffery Goldberg.

    A bunch of evangelical goys who have never been to Israel, don’t know any Israelis, don’t read Israeli news, and have never read a book on the region, pretending to know what “the Jews” want.

    I’m dying over here – you people actually think Israelis back Bibi on this? You think American Jews are in-league with the West Bank fundamentalist settlers? What planet are you living on?

    Most Israelis WANT THE SETTLEMENTS DISMANTLED. Read a bloody poll once in a while.

    Most Jews in America ARE LEFTIES. Jewish-American support for Israel has been declining among young Jewish adults at about 10% a decade because the situation in Palestine is sullying Israel’s reputation.

    You guys are out to lunch. I’d be surprised if you’ve ever had a real conversation about this issue with a real life Jew.

    Abe Foxman: Obama Gave a Pro-Israel Speech

    That is right, Abraham Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League.

    Obama gives a speech that changes U.S. policy towards Isreal and the framework for a peace process not one bit and you idiots go crazy. Spoon fed hate and wacko talking points, but not an ounce of sense or the capability to think for your selves.

  • Badnewzbearz

    Wow, this thread really got hijacked by leftists and their propaganda. I’ve been to Israel, a couple of times – and I guarantee you they don’t support the ’67 borders (which would make their country 9 miles wide) which would include a divided Jerusalem and giving up all the holy sites. They also don’t support Obama; his approval in Israel is less than 10%; and yes, I do read polls from time to time.

    As far as this always being the American position, that’s a lie. In 2004, Bush issued a written statement which was signed by the majority of congress. It stated that the U.S. would never pressure Israel to return to the 1967 borders, since those borders are indefensible. Netanyahu spoke of it yesterday. Yes, Obama is historic all right. The first president to publicly call for Israel to negotiate with a terrorist organization (Hamas-Fatah) and return to the 1967 borders, thereby guaranteeing its own destruction. No president – until now – has ever called for the ’67 borders, and a divided Jerusalem – as a starting point for negotiations.

    ADL Applauds President Obama’s Strong Outline Of Principles For U.S. Policy In Middle East

    New York, NY, May 19, 2011 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today commended President Barack Obama for his statement of U.S. priorities in the Middle East, his strong affirmation of the deep and “unshakeable” relationship between the United States and Israel, and expressed support for his vision of a negotiated Israeli-Palestinian settlement with strong security provisions for Israel and a non-militarized Palestinian state.

  • Jonah

    So the extent of the Evangelical’s solution to Israel’s current situation is . . . To keep things as they are.

    Wow. Wonderful idea – continue a status quo which has severely damaged Israel’s international standing among all nations and religions (yup, even us Chosen People are less supportive of Israel now) leaving Israel out in the cold, with no one to care about it.

    For a nation that depends on international support for it’s very survival, this is suicide.

    It’s like refusing to give a drug addict friend some tough love because it might make him mad at you. In the end you’re not really his friend – you just want to keep up appearances that you’re his friend, so you indulge his self-destructive behaviour.

    You only pretend to “care” about Israel so that the rapture can come and us Jews can go to hell and you self-righteous evangelicals can go to heaven.

    Thanks but no thanks – stop buying Israel crack cocaine please so that it will tell you what a good friend you are.

  • Dirac

    Did anyone actually LISTEN to or READ Obama’s speech before running out into the street frothing at the mouth and calling him every degrading name you can think of?

    Here’s an excerpt from what the President actually said:

    “For the Palestinians, efforts to delegitimize Israel will end in failure. Symbolic actions to isolate Israel at the United Nations in September won’t create an independent state. Palestinian leaders will not achieve peace or prosperity if Hamas insists on a path of terror and rejection. And Palestinians will never realize their independence by denying the right of Israel to exist.”

    THAT is “anti-semitic pro-Hamas abandonment of an ally”?!

    If you have them for Romney, Pawlenty, Bachman, Limbaugh, Drudge, Beck, Hannity or anyone else at Fox, please post those too. It would seem my Google is broken.

    Here’s just one example – Bush’s crazy and radical statement from 2008, supporting terrorists and throwing Israel under the bus:

    “I believe that any peace agreement between them will require mutually agreed adjustments to the armistice lines of 1949 to reflect current realities and to ensure that the Palestinian state is viable and contiguous.”

    I don’t remember everyone throwing the same sort of fit back then as they are in reaction to Obama saying the exact same thing, but I’m sure someone more familiar with Hoft and other right wingers can point me to the right sources.

  • Michael In WA

    First problem here is that religious nuts have taken over this conversation on the right. The IDF has said for years that the 67 borders are defendable. Seriously, Israel is going to be attacked by who? What army could survive such an attack? Peace means compromise. Even Sharon realized that getting peace was a good thing. For Netanyahu perpetual war is the only answer. He is a clear and present danger to the future of Israel. What President Obama said was nothing new and is in fact the position that has been held by every administration since Johnson. 67 is a starting point, not an end point.

    Understanding Obama’s shift on Israel and the ‘1967 lines’

    The Bottom Line

    In the context of this history, Obama’s statement Thursday represented a major shift. He did not articulate the 1967 boundaries as a “Palestinian goal” but as U.S. policy. He also dropped any reference to “realities on the ground” — code for Israeli settlements — that both Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton had used. He further suggested that Israel’s military would need to agree to leave the West Bank.

    Obama did not go all the way and try to define what his statement meant for the disputed city of Jerusalem, or attempt to address the issue of Palestinians who want to return to lands now in the state of Israel. He said those issues would need to be addressed after borders and security are settled. But, for a U.S. president, the explicit reference to the 1967 lines represented crossing the Rubicon.
