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…

    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 .

    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.

    I love your post, Bigkahuna!

    Jug ears has no fear of the Lord and no respect for God’s chosen. Let him pay the price…as long as he does not do it with our wealth and blood.

    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.

    “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

    #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.

    Jeffrey Goldberg is a Kapo………….

    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.!!
