Barack Obama Warns the Jewish State: “Israel Doesn’t Know What Its Own Best Interests Are”

During the 2012 election Obama’s radical anti-Israel bias was exposed in a video, a comprehensive synopsis of President Obama’s anti-Israel posturing and policies. Barack Obama ran for president as a pro-Israel candidate — but his record tells a different story.

Now there’s this…
Barack Obama slaps Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu in the face once again.
Nile Gardiner at The Telegraph reported:

The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg has an eye-opening piece for Bloomberg that reveals in stark terms what President Obama really thinks of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as well as Israel itself. As The Telegraph’s Middle East correspondent Robert Tait reports:

The damning assessment of the Israeli prime minister, relayed by senior White House officials to an American journalist, Jeffrey Goldberg, is the most graphic sign yet of the toxic relationship between the two men, who have clashed continually over the stalled Middle East peace process.

Writing on the Bloomberg website, Goldberg quoted Mr Obama as repeatedly saying, “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are” in response to a spate of recent announcements for thousands of new Jewish settler homes in east Jerusalem and the West Bank on land the Palestinians want for a future state.

“If Israel, a small state in an inhospitable region, becomes more of a pariah – one that alienates even the affections of the US, its last steadfast friend – it won’t survive,”

The White House is not denying a report that President Obama repeatedly said that “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”

  • “If Israel, a small state in an inhospitable region, becomes more of a pariah – one that alienates even the affections of the US, its last steadfast friend – it won’t survive,”

    … I find this statement even more alarming than the other. To me, it sounds like a threat.

  • Jim

    This wasn’t unexpected.

    Anyone with an ounce of honesty knew that Obama would go after Israel in his 2nd term. And really, as expected, he won’t order the US military to attack Israel, all he has to do is act like an aggrieved “neutral” negotiator who will wash his hands of support of Israel in the form of taking away military and similar aid.

    Basically, Obama is setting the stage for the US to abandon the US to the wolves of the Muslim world. No doubt he’ll enable an act by continuing to arm the Muslim Brotherhood controlled Egyptian military.

    But he’ll be able to say, “Well, I tried…but those Israeli’s are just sooooo EXTREME…” after Israel has been attacked.

    i totally agree w/ you TeachX3. i thought the exact same thing after reading this short article. odumbo is bought and sold by the devil. he might as well continue living it up here because where he’s going after he takes his last breath isn’t a very good place.

    Israel has shown itself to be self-reliant. The current lack of leadership in the U.S. wants to cave on every international issue and that is not good for anyone, least of all the United States.

    Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are,

    Dictated just like the nanny that he and any other Democrat thinks of us. They always know what’s best.

  • Redwine

    Emperor Hussein is far more dangerous to Israel than A-jad the Mad and the lunatic ayatollahs. He must be stopped before he wedges Israel in between them, his BFFs in the Muslim Brotherhood and their offshoot terror organizations, Hamas and AQ, and his own monsters about to be unleashed: Hagel, Brennan, Kerry, not to mention the monsters behind the curtain: Chas Freeman, and the vile Samantha Power.

    It is imperative to find a way to remove Hussein from power. He’s lethal to America and to our allies, particularly to Israel.

  • vityas

    He’s telling England what to do. He’s telling Israel what to do. He’s telling us what to do. He’s really getting strung out on this power trip.

  • Narcissistic-n- chief seems to think he knows what in everyone best interest including americans…..Israel knows whats best for them since they face terrorism day after day…..

  • donh

    A prelude to the old Mafia power play of ….” making an offer you can’t refuse….if you know what’s good for you “

  • Netanyahu is a great man who loves his country and will defend it til death. Obama is a punk who despises his country and wouldn’t cut short a golf game to defend it. What kind of world is it when a man like Netanyahu has to listen to a POS like this??

  • Perfected democrat

    This coming from, B.O., the dedicated moslem-communist traitor who has repeatedly betrayed Israel, half of America, and so many innocent victims indirectly around the world, and a substantial number of the other half of America who are too shallow to realize that they have been conned by one of the greatest snake oil salesmen of all times, and as the leader of the greatest American criminal syndicate of all time, the Democratic Party; from their earliest days as advocates of slavery, their early on adjunct militia, the KKK (read the real history, educate yourselves, don’t just parrot left-wing revisionist sound bites), to the premier showing of Birth of a Nation in the Wilson White House, to the FDR illusion as effective manager and saviour thru the Great Depression, thru the disastrously incompetent Carter years (and later); then the brazen corruption of LBJ, including the mindless expansion of the Vietnam War (remember what McNamara said in the aftermath), to the foolish waste of much of the ineffective “War on Poverty”, and some credible people allege (it’s even on UTube for crying out loud), the assassination of JFK; then of course the Clinton brand which betrayed the Serbs and their Christian company in favor of Hitler’s muslim allies, and their brazen disrespect for the integrity of the office of the presidency which Bubba and his little life partner demonstrated throughout their stint; all setting the stage for the effective coup d’état of America, finally undermining the American Constitution with one of the most corrupt, according to Judicial Watch, politicians in American history, the enthusiastic late-term abortion advocate and monster, Obama, who has formally introduced one of America’s foremost enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, into high government and the White House. Obama may be a Wilson on steroids, but a Lincoln he is not even close. What a perverse shame Obama and the Democratic Party have brought upon America…

  • dwdude

    i hope all of the die hard leftist Jews are happy with their vote

  • The Chutzpah! Well no one should be surprised-espeically those JEWS who voted for King O-thinking he wouldn’t stab them in the back to placate the Muslims!

    So Jewish O voters, how’s that hopey-changey crap workin’ out for ya?

  • Paddy

    Obama’s version of Israel’s best interests will cause the destruction of Israel.

  • AmericaWILL

    Proof to me that Obama is no Christian. No follower of Christ and student of the Holy Scriptures would treat God’s chosen people in such a way. O should be shaking in his shoes. God will vindicate His children.

  • #19 AmericaWILL… hear, hear!

  • the american jews don’t care!

    More comments from the renowned middle east specialist Obama. Heck, we all know the multitude of hours he has spent researching and interviewing middle east leaders and educators.

    Unfortunately he probably does believe this of himself.

  • Rose

    AMAZING how well Israel has done for over 60 yrs without any advice from Odrama Queen Soetoro there to tell them “WHAT IS IN THEIR BEST INTERESTS” the way he is currently doing to Americans.

  • And so the Islamarxist Mubarack Hussein bin Obama begins his Koran and Mein Kampf commanded jihad against the Jewish state.

  • He knows better than the Israelis what’s in Israel’s best interest?

    He really has a high opinion of himself.

  • rolling thunder

    This comment by the BIG O about sums up the attitude of the entire political class

  • CT

    America obviously doesn’t know what its own best interests are, we elected and re-elected an arrogant petulant punk Marxist POTUS.

  • SeniorD

    Banock Omaba, illustrating the unimaginable heights of he megalomania combined with a rabidly pro-Arab prederence, says Israel doesn’t know what’s good for them. If there is ANY country that knows what’s best for it’s citizens it’s Israel.

    But then, our Clown-in-Chief has no clue what’s best for THIS country. One of his idols, St. Franklin the Roosevelt, fought a two front war. Wonder how Omaba would do with a two front war – one internal the other external.

  • Rock

    Add that the propaganda moguls in Hollyweird are producing more TV shows portraying Israel in a unfavorable light, and WTF’s pick of Chuck Hagel for secretary of defense and the agenda sounds more like 1930’s Germany than the America I grew up in where Israel was a close friend and ally, but then the boy child president does have a thing for anything Islamic.
    Unfortunately if we held a presidential election this week the Jewish community would still vote Democrat, it’s like they suffer from some sort of Munchausen disorder when it comes to the nation of Israel.

  • bigL

    Obama doesn’t see that the Junta masters are setting him up. He is too involved with himself to see the threat to him. Even the Junta doesn’t see thast Israel is defending their families.
    I think that trumps everything.
    During the ’08 elections a reporter asked some American Jews at a campaign event , “what a bout Israel” He said ‘Oh we don’t care about Israel. It is over there as a oddity”.
    So a the roman Catholics voted for Obama because I guess theya re Donks before theyare Roman Catholics. Their concer for ABs and contraceptives and their religious rights–e-h-h, not so much…
    But this gave the election to Obama.

  • A_Nonny_Mouse

    Barack Hussein Obama, the current president of the United States of America, should just ut-shay up-way.

    He’s got *NO RIGHT* to tell Israel what is or isn’t “in its own best interests”.

    Mr. President: with all the respect due your esteemed office (and with ABSOLUTELY no respect for you personally, or your political party, or your administration): Stuff it. Sir.

  • Repousa

    He doesn’t even know what is in the best interests of the United States much less Israel. If he did know what is in the best interests of the United States, he’d resign.

  • That’s a Muslim talking.

    Sounds like Muhammad himself.

  • RedBeard

    Obama, or Soetoro, or whatever his name is this week, is demonstrating narcissism to the nth power. The man is mentally unbalanced, and actually believes he has infinite wisdom on par with God.

    All that, before we even consider the fact that he’s hopelessly wrong on every issue.

    Republicans, stop cowering in the corner and fight this evil, sick and twisted man, before he buries us all.

  • Lim Lynn
    President Barack Obama‘s nomination for US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, is a board member of the far left, resolutely anti-military Ploughshares Fund.

  • Randy Starkey

    The reason Netanyahu has a big problem with Obama is because he has had experience with lying, double-dealing troublemakers like Obama before. Netanyahu actually has experience as an effective Israeli military officer and elected leader and Obama is just another egomaniac like other such bloviating dirtbag leaders throughout the Middle East. Obama has no respect from Netanyahu because Obama has never EARNED NOR DESERVES any respect.

  • ‘With each new settlement announcement, in Obama’s view, Netanyahu is moving his country down a path toward near-total isolation.’

    Let me try to put that right:

    Obama threatens Nethanyahu that regardless of any settlement announcements he will see to it that Israel is on a path towards total isolation.

    There you go. Fixed it.

  • saveus

    we are so lucky to have an all knowing great leader who is on a path to install the muslim brotherhood whereever he can
    keep praying for the wellbeing of the USA and Israel —

    protect us from this tyrant

  • Jaynie59

    Obama is a far left liberal. As a Progressive, he’s a communist by another name. All liberals, every last one of them, are raging anti-Semites but their Jew hatred is a direct result of their hatred of Christians and Christianity. They get offended when accused of being anti-Semites because in their minds they’re not. The hatred of Israel on the Left stems from the indoctrination of the education system. All liberals believe the lie that “Christianity has killed more people in the history of the world than any other philosophy”. They learned it in school. It’s true. So the underlying hostility all liberals have for conservatism, as represented by the Republican Party, is that they are Evil with a capital E. They kill people. Conservatives consider cretins like Alan Grayson to be a fool and a joke. But liberals believe, really believe, that Republicans kill people. They must be stopped.

    Liberals, even Jews, believe that the only reason Republicans support Israel is because they want to bring about the End Of Days. It’s apocalypse stuff. Conservatives feed that fear because they can’t help “sharing” their Christian beliefs about it. So while it’s pretty nutty stuff, liberals believe conservatives believe it, and everytime I’ve mentioned it in internet comments some idiot Christian has to “explain” why it’s true. Ugh.

    Conservatives will never win the war of ideas with liberals because they’re decent, honest, honorable people who can’t bring themselves to lie for good of the party. Therefore? We’re doomed.


    Of course he knows better than Israelis know….HE is the smartest, most intelligent, know it all that ever lived! He is the KING of America, and wants to become the KING of the world! (snark) How embarassing it is to me that he is president of our once great country.

  • gwhh

    Other an the poltical differences between the two men. I think there some sort of hate on Berry part. BN is a REAL been there and done that. Kills bads guys and is a warrior who loves being a warrior.

    Obama never done a REAL thing in his life.

    Obama THINK and act like a tough guy but just a bullet and a coward at heart.

    BN is a REAL tough guy who been there and done there!!

    Obama never down nothing and never been there!!

    BN always telling Berry to shove it!

    “It’s apocalypse stuff. Conservatives feed that fear because they can’t help “sharing” their Christian beliefs about it. So while it’s pretty nutty stuff, liberals believe conservatives believe it, and everytime I’ve mentioned it in internet comments some idiot Christian has to “explain” why it’s true. Ugh.”

    -some idiot Christian? 25% of the Holy Bible is prophetic with a majority of those prophecies relating to the “End of Days” and the state of Israel is its timepiece. So, after almost 2,000 years, Israel becomes a nation again in 1948, wins control of Jerusalem in 1967 and is currently being pressured to divide Israel to create a “Palestinian” state. Who’s the idiot?!

    “Conservatives will never win the war of ideas with liberals because they’re decent, honest, honorable people who can’t bring themselves to lie for good of the party. Therefore?”

    -then you turn right around and state something accurately!

    “We’re doomed.”

    -No. You’re doomed. We believers accept Yeshua haMessiah Jesus Christ Almighty God & Savior and have already won. Please. Keep your doom & gloom for yourself. Thank you.

    Wanna bet Barack Insane OBama (Zech 12, 14, Zeph 3 et al)? Tick tock tick tock Jew hater and everyone with you including the USA.

    God, in the next few years, is going to dump all 190+ Gentile Nations for one. That one will be Israel. But, first the Book says there has to be a dictator ruling this world from Jerusalem. He will slaughter and kill more Jews in 3 1/2 years than Hitler did in Warsaw, Treblinka, Auschwitz, etc… This dictator will be Mr. 666 himself. And, death and hell followed this white horse rider (Rev 6).

  • jtb012u340

    Oh yea, I forgot, do you know Warsaw, Auschwitz, Treblinka had in common with Sandy Hook , Virginia Tech, et al? They were “gun-free” zones too.

    What a pathetic, disgraceful excuse of a man.

    I would love to see Gateway Pundit and other Conservative web sites stop using his photos. It’s bad enough that we have to endure his arrogance, his lies and his hatred of our Country but, do we really need to see his face all day every day? After all, isn’t that just feeding his vanity?
