Unreal… Obama Tells McCain to Quit Playing Politics With Israel
“I strongly condemn President Ahmadinejad’s outrageous remarks at the United Nations, and am disappointed that he had a platform to air his hateful and anti-Semitic views. The threat from Iran’s nuclear program is grave. Now is the time for Americans to unite on behalf of the strong sanctions that are needed to increase pressure on the Iranian regime.”
“Once again, I call upon Senator McCain to join me in supporting a bipartisan bill to increase pressure on the Iranian regime by allowing states and private companies to divest from companies doing business in Iran. The security of our ally Israel is too important to play partisan politics, and it is deeply disappointing that Senator McCain and a few of his allies in Congress feel otherwise,” said Senator Barack Obama.”
This is the same guy who flip-flopped on Jerusalem in about 12 hours.
Here is Obama telling AIPAC members that Jerusalem should remain undivided:
There is no question what Obama told the AIPAC audience.
Here is the transcript from AIPAC, via Jewishfan:
Obama: “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided,” Obama thundered in his AIPAC speech earning an ovation from the 7,000-plus attendees at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference.
On CNN the following day, however, he was singing a different tune. “Well, obviously, it’s going to be up to the parties to negotiate a range of these issues. And Jerusalem will be part of those negotiations,” he said when asked whether Palestinians had no future claim to the city.
The next day away from AIPAC Obama caved to Palestinian pressure and backtacked on his Jerusalem promise.
He said it was an example of “poor phrasing!”
Then he later had the nerve to tell Katie Couric that he never changed positions on Jerusalem.
So, who’s playing politics with Israel?
Obama ought to be ashamed of himself.
