Former Marine Striker: It’s Time to “Start Viewing This Administration As an Existential Threat to Israel”

Earlier this week the Obama Administration leaked information on a secret Israel-Azerbaijan Alliance. According to a Foreign Policy report based on “four senior diplomats and military intelligence officers” Azerbaijan has given Israel permission to land planes on Azeri airfields after an attack on Iranian nuclear sites. The Obama Administration endangered the two countries by leaking this information to the press.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lectures Barack Obama in the Oval Office on the dangers facing Israel back in May 2011.

On Friday a former Marine Corps strike planner weighed in on the implications of this leak Friday on The Mark Levin Show. In light of this latest leak, the Marine told Mark Levin, “I would start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel.”
Doug Ross reported:

You have to ask for the motivation behind the leak. I mean, if the Israelis can do this operation, it’s to our benefit! From a diplomatic standpoint, if you wanted to tell the Iranians that the Israelis did this, it’s without our permission. And then try to butter up the Iranians after the strike, so they don’t close the Strait of Hormuz, that’s one thing.

But giving away all of the secrets of an ally? When you’re doing that, you have to ask whether we still have Israel as an ally. We are not acting like an ally. In fact, if you ask me, based on the amount of time I expect the Israelis put in this relationship with Azerbaijan, I would start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel.

In early March, an administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told reporters, “We’re trying to make the decision to attack as hard as possible for Israel.”

    re: “In light of this latest leak, the Marine told Mark Levin, “I would start viewing this administration as an existential threat to Israel.”

    Actually, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Many have “…started viewing this administration as an existential threat to America.” Is it any reason that so many individuals consider him a tool of Islamic power politics, if not a Muslim in truth and in fact?

    Barry is no Charles Martel. More like an Islamic/Marxist Vidkun Quisling.

    He’s just in over his head.

    – Hussein’s varying associated fathers – Muslim or Communist, his having been brought up Muslim in Indonesia
    – His associations, from Pakistani roommates (and lovers?) to Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said, Ali Abunimah, Jeremiah Wright, Farrakhan, Shabazz (of the NBPP)
    – His appearance at a pro-“Palestinian” celebration for Khalidi (the video of which should be subpoenaed from the LA Times)
    – His possible Saudi backers of his term at Harvard Law School
    – His pronouncement in one of “his” books that he would side with the Arabs should he need to
    – His description of the Muslim call to prayer as one of the prettiest sounds at sunset
    – His telling Freudian slip – “my Muslim faith”
    – His denial of the Jewish historical presence in the Land of Israel in his Cairo speech of 2009
    – His reprehensible, undignified treatment of Netanyahu
    – His constant undercutting of Israeli diplomacy

    … I guess you could say that he is an existential threat to Israel.

    Earlier this week it was discovered that CIA’s top is a Islamist convert.

    Exit question: how many “leaks” on Israel happened recently?

    (btw, it probably took Israel more than 6 years to forge the Azerbaijan alliance).

    By diminishing U.S. capabilities and supremacy, hamstringing the economy and refusing to allow the U.S. to become more oil indepedent, d’oh-bummer has become an existential threat to the stability of the world.

    I’ll bet the Israeli military would be welcome in Georgia, too… they’ve done a lot for Tbilisi

    But Obama is NOT to be trusted, he’ll screw over ANYbody to get his way… Bibi won’t be telling him squat now

    And I hope he bombs them TOMORROW

    Reaganite Republican (#9):
    I’ll bet the Israeli military would be welcome in Georgia, too… they’ve done a lot for Tbilisi

    Not only have the Israelis been working together and training Georgians (which the Russians put an end to in 2008), but they have worked very closely for decades with the Iraqi Kurds, a real indigenous people (unlike the Fakestinians), who are being denied the country they truly deserve.

  • Barry Popik

    An “existential” threat to Israel? No, the Obama administration’s actions against Israel are very real.

    Redwine’s list is far to short. There’s the recent denial that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, ordering Jews in Israel where to live, financial aid to Hamas without any preconditions, denial of a travel visa to a member of the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament), no statement issued by Obama or Hillary Clinton’s State Department after Jews are murdered in France, the large bow to Saudi Arabia, refusal to build the Keystone Pipeline to make the U.S. less dependent on oil from the region, U.S. support of “Arab spring” Muslim Brotherhood-ruled countries, …

    [Hillary Rodham Clinton, US Secretary of State, who met with the foreign ministers of the six-nation Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) here yesterday, proposed a strong missile shield to protect Gulf Arab states from Tehran and sought to work with them to help end the violence in Iran’s ally Syria.] i wonder what the people in poland and the czech republic think?

    In what way would neutering Israel benefit the USA? That is the question I would like asked and answered. Obama’s chief responsibility is to the USA and no other country. That it is in our best interests to support an ally that operates in a way that is similar to the USA and serves our interests in the area (as opposed to the oppressive countries surrounding it), I understand our support. I do not wish Israel to be exterminated. But, by disclosing the air base, how does that serve the best interests of the USA? Obama does not operate in a vacuum…..there are other entities who support and enable his actions. The question I ask, how does this benefit (the disclosure)the USA, I truly would like answered.

  • mg4us

    Whether Obama is a Muslim or not is only part of the equation. . .

    The question is who’s side and values does he represent and work towards. .Clearly not the AMerica described in OUR Constitution. . .

    His actions regarding the middle east geo-political moves may also have something to do with his Pal Putin in Russia. .recall the open mic in Korea asking Putin (former KGB) to give him more time. . . maybe not about missle defense but in helping Iran. . .why?

    If Iran gets the bomb, then they will effectively change the power in that egion and become kingpin of the strait of Hormuz and all oil production and shipments. .who will stop them? And if they push oil prices up, who benefits the most. . .yes, Russia and Putin. . their whole economy is based on Oil & gas shipments to Europe and elsewhere. . .

    How convenient, high oil (energy) prices will give Putin and Russia control over Western Europe’s economic activity. . . and flood Moscow and the coffers with lots of money too.

    Obama is untrustworthy. . but more dangerous are the people behind him pulling his strings and funding his operation. . .

    The worse is yet to come. . . be prepared. . .

    Anybody responsible for attempting to destroy Israel had better sleep with one eye open the rest of their life.

    This administration is underhanded, divisive, dishonest, disconnected, and, I am coming to believe, evil . . . not only is it a grave threat to Israel, it is a grave threat to its own people.
