Obama tries Jedi-mind-trick on DC synagogue to swallow his Iran-nuclear & Palestinian initiatives

Rabbi Gil Steinlauf welcomes Obama's address to Cong. Adas Israel in D.C.
In a mind-trick worthy of a Jedi warrior, Pres. Barack Obama gave a speech to molify members of Washington's Congregation Adas Israel on Friday May 22nd, to trust his benevolence (instead of Israeli intelligence and defense leaders) that his shifting US policy towards Iran and a state of Palestine would make Israel safe.  

Ha'aretz has published the full-text of Obama's speech 


"President Barack Obama, wearing a kipah "forcefully" objected to suggestions that policy differences between his administration and the Israeli government signaled his lack of support for the longtime US ally. This raises a question: How do Obama's repeated commitments to Israel’s security square with close US military and intelligence cooperation with an organization whose vow to destroy Israel is backed by 100,000 missiles – all pointed south?" ("US and Hizballah coordinate spy drone flights over Qalamoun, share US combat intelligence," in DebkaFile 5/23/15)

Radio-host, Mark Levin, criticized Obama's ploy, strongly, in this soliloquy:


Radio-host and author, Ben Shapiro presents a good case against trusting Obama on Israel, based on 7-years of history. In A Complete Timeline of Obama's Anti-Israel Hatred in Breitbart.com 3/20/15


... This is the culmination of a longtime Obama policy of destroying the US-Israel relationship; Obama has spent his entire life surrounded by haters of Israel, from former Palestine Liberation Organization spokesman Rashid Khalidi to former Jimmy Carter National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, pro-Hamas negotiator Robert Malley to UN Ambassador Samantha Power (who once suggested using American troops to guard Palestinians from Israelis), Jeremiah Wright (who said “Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me”) to Professor Derrick Bell (“Jewish neoconservative racists…are undermining blacks in every way they can”). Here is a concise timeline, with credit to Dan Senor and the editors of Commentary:
February 2008: Obama says while campaigning, ‘There is a strain within the pro-Israel community that says unless you adopt an unwavering pro-Likud approach to Israel that you’re anti-Israel.” At the time, as Dan Senor pointed out in The Wall Street Journal, Israel was run by the Kadima government run by Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni, and Shimon Peres, and was attempting desperately to bring the Palestinians to the table. Instead, the Palestinians launch war, as always.
June 2008: Obama tells the American Israel Public Affairs Conference that Jerusalem ought to remain undivided, attempting to woo Jewish votes. He then walks that back the next day, saying only that the capital shouldn’t be divided by barbed wire.

Will free people stop excusing Muslim violence against those objecting to Muslim violence?

To mainstream media, Garland, Texan cartoonists are not equivalent to Charlie Hebdo cartoonists. How will the media's attempt to divert blame for police's killing of cartoon-jihadists onto AFDI's Pamela Geller (rather than the Muslim gunmen) influence future Muslims against critics?

Bosch Faustin won the American Freedom Defense Initiative's "Draw Mohammed" contest- held in Garland, Texas in response to a Muslim, "Islamophobia"
event held there in reaction to the Muslim massacre of the staff at Paris' Charlie Hebdo satire magazine. Phoenix Muslims, Nadir Soofi and Elton ("Ibrahim") Simpson, felt obliged to drive to Garland to attempt to massacre the event with assault rifles.  CNN reported
Elton Simpson, one of the two men who were foiled in an attempted attack on the Prophet Muhammad exhibit in Garland, Texas, was in private contact with known jihadists overseas who were encouraging Simpson to launch an attempted attack, multiple officials tell CNN. . . . 
The FBI has found private communications between Simpson and some prominent terrorists whom he also had public exchanges with on Twitter including Jenaid Hussein, a British national tied to ISIS and Mohamed Abdullahi Hassan, an American now believed to be in Somalia and part of that country's al Qaeda affiliate al Shabaab, according to one law enforcement official.
Why do Muslims who attack feel justified in breaking criminal law?  In Norway, Mullah Krekar tells this Norwegian videojournalist what he teaches in person and online:


Should it be labled "provocation" to teach violence against one criticizing that some Muslims advocate to kill a non-Muslim drawing Mohammed? 
"Ask a Muslim" stand proselytizes on Santa Monica's 3rd St. Promenade
At L.A.'s TruthFest in autumn, 2014 Counter Jihad Coalition's Steve Amundsen explained his group's table on Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade- established, he says, in response to the, "Ask a Muslim" dawa (proselytizing) stand set-up to attract converts from Christianity and other faiths to Islam. 
Counter-Jihad Coalition's Steve Amundson


Truth Defenders' Louis Lionheart says he has held such forums for 16 years

TruthDefenders' Louis Lionheart sets up a multimedia, public forum, including microphones, video monitors, and camcorders to present and record his group's comparison of Christianity and Islam. On DemoCast.TV, you can see many types of people engaging Mr. Lionheart before the passers-by- ranging from antagonists to supporters. 

The American Freedom Defense Initiative of Pamela Geller
Protests at January Islam event at Curtis Cullwell Center
and Robert Spencer, like the Santa Monica counter-jihadists, staged their Mohammed Cartoon contest in response to what they considered a provocation- a Muslim "Islamophobia" conference (held
in the wake of the jihadist massacre of Paris' Charlie Hebdo staff) at the same Garland, Texas Conference Center: 
Geller said that the Cartoon Exhibit was a logical next step following AFDI’s Free Speech Rally in Garland: “This event will stand for free speech and show that Americans will not be cowed by violent Islamic intimidation. That is a crucial stand to take as Islamic assaults on the freedom of speech, our most fundamental freedom, are growing more insistent.” AFDI Website

Steve, a free-thinking, Santa Monican, commonly engages the open-mic debatees. He offers perspective on the Promenade phenomenon, in view of the Garland, Texas Muslim-attempted massacre on critics of Islam, Geert Wilders, Robert Spencer, and Pamela Geller.

 

Alisyn Camerota blames Pamela Geller, not Muslim,
Counter-Jihad Coalition and TruthDefenders, like the Muslim groups, are afforded Promenade police protection. In addition to security cameras, they have undercover guards around the crowd. But will the recent media boomerang of blame for Pamela Geller (and not the Muslim attackers) for the attacks on the American Freedom Defense Initiative's Mohammed Cartoon Competition ultimately encourage future, Muslim attacks on public forum debates on the Promenade? 

In "Pamela Geller's critics are proving her point," by David French writes in National Review:
... The fury against Pamela Geller is motivated mostly by fear — by the understanding that there are indeed many, many Muslims who believe that blasphemy should be punished with death, and who put that belief into practice. It’s motivated by the fear that our alliances with even “friendly” Muslim states and “allied” Muslim militias are so fragile that something so insignificant as a cartoon would drive them either to neutrality or straight into the arms of ISIS.

That’s why even the military brass will do something so unusual as call a fringe pastor of a tiny little church to beg him not to post a YouTube video. That’s why the president of the United States — ostensibly the most powerful man in the world — will personally appeal to that same pastor not to burn a Koran. They know that hundreds of millions of Muslims are not “moderate” by any reasonable definition of that word, and they will,in fact, allow themselves to be provoked by even the most insignificant and small-scale act of religious satire or defiance. After all, there are Muslim communities that will gladly burn Christians alive to punish even rumored blasphemy.

Latino church hosts, translates Pamela Geller speech into Spanish to enlighten Latinos to threat against West and Israel

Elton Simpson tweeted his goal for he and a fellow Muslim to get killed in the act of killing infidels drawing Mohammed
Protestors outside the Muslim Conference in Garland, TX, Jan.

Seemingly prescient in light of the ISIS-attempted massacre on Garland, Texas, last April a Latino church seeking to educate Latinos about the Islamist threat to the Americas and Israel, hosted and provided simultaneous Spanish translation for American Freedom Defense Initiative leader, Pamela Geller to present her perspectives for Hispanics.

ISIS appears to declare war on controversial blogger Pamela Geller on Tuesday in an ominous online message claiming it has fighters across America ready to attack "any target we desire." The chilling Tuesday post also boasts of ISIS having "71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack." It specifically names Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Michigan and California.

"The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah (authority or governance) in the heart of our enemy," the message reads.

Exiled Iranian human-rights advocate asks Americans not to remove sanctions against Mullah regime

Exiled Iranian opposition leader, Morad Moallem, likens the nature of the Ayatollahs' regime to the Nazis, Fascists, or Communists. He explains their goals, apocalytpic nature, and strategies for the West to protect the world from them.

Democratic-reformer in exile, Morad Moallem, explains the mentality of the totalitarian power ruling Iran and seeking complete Middle East oil domination, and the defeat of Western resistance to Islamic domination.

Obama/Kerry's "catastrophic blunder' in enabling Iranian Mullahs over enemy Israel, GOP Congress

Premier Netanyahu, Iran Pres. Hassan Rouhani, Pres. Obama
"A deal with Iran built on lies" by Wesley Pruden, editor-emeritus of The Washington Times, Apr 2'15.
Everything about the so-called deal with Iran, including the reputations of the men who negotiated it, is a lie. It's likely to be a deadly lie for millions of people who will die on account of it. The world should mark well everyone responsible for it.


Victor Davis Hanson writes "Obama And Kerry Fashion A Neville Chamberlain Legacy" in Investors' Business Daily April 1, '15.

"The current negotiations with the Iranians in Lausanne, Switzerland, have all the hallmarks of the Munich negotiations. The Iranians, like Hitler, have only contempt for the administration that has treated them so fawningly. During the negotiations in Switzerland, the Iranians blew up a mock U.S. aircraft carrier. Their supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, did his usual "death to America" shtick before adoring crowds.

Our dishonor in Lausanne, as with Munich, may avoid a confrontation in the present, but our shame will guarantee a war in the near future." by Victor Davis Hanson "Obama And Kerry Fashion A Neville Chamberlain Legacy" in Investors' Business Daily April 1, '15. 
Addressing Americans at AIPAC in March, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu conveyed his concerns about the risks that Obama was assuming in the prospective agreement intended to stop Iran's nuclear program, as Israel is its assumed primary target. 




Amb. John Bolton explains why he calls Obama/Kerrys' flawed Iran nuclear agreement "a catastrophic blunder" (in this exclusive video). He claims:


1. Iran being allowed a nuclear program and a ballistic missile program triggers a massive nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

2. Iran already equips terrorists with weapons. They can get nuclear bombs into the West by ground.

Israel: Deal a capitulation, will give Iran ‘a military nuclear program’ Times of Israel Apr 3

Obama calls Netanyahu; Jerusalem protests ‘historic mistake’ that will make world ‘more dangerous'; says Iran keeps all its facilities, escapes sanctions

Secy of State Kerry and Foreign Min. Mohammad Jawad Zarif
“The framework gives Iran’s nuclear program, the sole purpose of which is to produce nuclear bombs, international legitimacy,” the Israeli official said.“Iran will still have extensive nuclear capabilities. It will continue to enrich uranium. It will continue its centrifuge research and development. It will not close even one of its nuclear facilities, including the underground facility at Fordo. This and more. 
“The bottom line,” the Israeli official warned, “is that this deal ensures the full removal of the sanctions against Iran’s nuclear program while assuring that it will keep its nuclear capabilities. 
“There is no demand that Iran stop its aggression in the region, its terrorism around the world or its threats to destroy Israel, which it has repeated again over the past several days,” the official complained. 
“This deal kowtows to Iranian dictates and it will not lead to a nuclear program for peaceful purposes, but rather to a military nuclear program.”
Israeli cabinet explains flaws in Kerry and Obama's Iran framework announcement at press conference April 3, '15



Netanyahu and Obama (Photo: Reuters)
P.M. Benjamin Netanyahu: "I just came from a meeting of the Israeli cabinet. We discussed the proposed framework for a deal with Iran. The cabinet is united in strongly opposing the proposed deal.

This deal would pose a grave danger to the region and to the world and would threaten the very survival of the State of Israel.

The deal would not shut down a single nuclear facility in Iran, would not destroy a single centrifuge in Iran and will not stop R and D on Iran's advanced centrifuges.

On the contrary. The deal would legitimize Iran's illegal nuclear program. It would leave Iran with a vast nuclear infrastructure. A vast nuclear infrastructure remains in place.

The deal would lift sanctions almost immediately and this at the very time that Iran is stepping up its aggression and terror in the region and beyond the region.

In a few years, the deal would remove the restrictions on Iran's nuclear program, enabling Iran to have a massive enrichment capacity that it could use to produce many nuclear bombs within a matter of months.

The deal would greatly bolster Iran's economy. It would give Iran thereby tremendous means to propel its aggression and terrorism throughout the Middle East.

Such a deal does not block Iran's path to the bomb. Such a deal paves Iran's path to the bomb. And it might very well spark a nuclear arms race throughout the Middle East and it would greatly increase the risks of terrible war.

Now, some say that the only alternative to this bad deal is war. That's not true. There is a third alternative – standing firm, increasing the pressure on Iran until a good deal is achieved.

And finally let me say one more thing. Iran is a regime that openly calls for Israel's destruction and openly and actively works towards that end. Just two days ago, in the midst of the negotiations in Lausanne, the commander of the Basij security forces in Iran said this: "The destruction of Israel is non-negotiable."

Well, I want to make clear to all. The survival of Israel is non-negotiable. Israel will not accept an agreement which allows a country that vows to annihilate us to develop nuclear weapons, period.

In addition, Israel demands that any final agreement with Iran will include a clear and unambiguous Iranian recognition of Israel's right to exist."



Mrs. Karen Shirley, an AIPAC-attendee from Northern California,  explains objections to  Obama administration plan for Democrat political expediency rather than increase sanctions against Iran to get a better deal in the future.

John Bolton: U.N. is irrelevant to Iran deal (which Obama would ignore violations of)

Amb. John Bolton says Obama/Kerry Iran deal which Netanyahu publicly exposed through Congress would be a free-hand for Iran to develop nuclear weapons.

A U.N. Vote Is Irrelevant to the Iran Deal


The Security Council can’t stop the U.S. from using force to protect itself from anyone’s nuclear weapons.


JOHN BOLTON in Wall St. Journal March 16 

Press reports that President Obama will enlist the U.N. Security Council to bless his imminent nuclear agreement with Iran have unleashed considerable controversy. Many worry council action would bind the U.S. to the deal, circumventing congressional scrutiny. Moreover, Iran may see U.N. action as protecting it from a subsequent change in U.S. policy.

There is no need for worry. The Security Council can do nothing to limit America’s freedom to break from this agreement or take whatever action it deems necessary to protect itself.


First, even the U.N. will require Iran to comply with any commitments made to the Security Council’s five permanent members and Germany. Bureaucracy-loving diplomats and Secretariat personnel will probably create a council committee to monitor Iran’s performance, but neither the U.S. nor any other U.N. member must accept the committee’s judgment that Iran is in compliance when it has contrary information. Washington can act on what it knows, whether or not it discloses the extent of its knowledge.

Given Iran’s dismal performance in living up to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and existing resolutions requiring that it cease all uranium-enrichment-related activity, Tehran will almost certainly begin violating the deal before the ink is dry. Security Council committees will be bystanders, and the U.S., Israel and others threatened by a nuclear-capable Iran will rely on their own intelligence to detect Iranian cheating.

The gravest danger during Mr. Obama’s remaining two years is that the White House and State Department will ignore, play down or suppress information that Iran is breaking the deal. Ignoring palpable treaty violations is built into the DNA of many arms-control theologians, and this administration will insist that the bureaucracy follows the party line that Iran is complying. 

(Amb. Bolton address to PJTN in Nashville, Feb. 23, 15)

Congressional committees (intelligence, armed services, and foreign affairs) will have a critical role in overseeing White House efforts to minimize dangerous Iranian behavior.

Israeli election special: Experts endorse Netanyahu's concerns about Obama trying to unseat him for exposing Islamist threat to Israel and the world

How do Israeli elections result in a government?    

Israel's electoral system uses proportional representation - voters don't vote for a local Parliamentarian, they vote for a party. Then the party makes up a list of preferred candidates, and allocate them seats in parliament, the number of which is determined by the percentage of the vote the party receives.

(Filmed Election Night in Jerusalem, 2009 at The Israel Project).
Because of the sheer number of parties, no one ever wins an outright majority, so the government is made up coalitions. In practice, this means that governments rarely ever last a full four-year term.

The prime minister is usually the leader of the party that can form the first coalition which has a majority.
Now, after the votes comes the haggling for the coalition. 

Seldom has a foreign election been so significant to the free world. While Israelis consider their distressed pocketbooks, they bear the weight of the free world upon their shoulders. They must elect a leader who'll defend them (and by proxy, the West) against the Iranian Islamist revolution- enabled by the Obama and John Kerry administration. The Iranian threat against the Gulf oil states and Israel is acknowledged. But Obama's threat to indirectly endanger Israel (and the West) to Islamism is hidden by the mainstream media in both the West and Israel. Will Israel be governed by a center-right coalition headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, or a center-left coalition, headed by Isaac Herzog? Israeli political thinker, Caroline Glick, analyzes the election quandry in perspective 

Column One: Israel’s next 22 months by Caroline Glick in the Jerusalem Post March 12

... Since taking office, Obama has used the US’s intelligence ties with Israel to harm Israel’s national security.
Caroline Glick of JPost.com
He has also used diplomacy to harm Israel. Last summer, Obama sought a diplomatic settlement of Hamas’s war with Israel that would have granted Hamas all of its war goals, including its demand for open borders and access to the international financial system.
Now of course, he is running roughshod over his bipartisan opposition, and the opposition of Israel and the Sunni Arab states, in the hopes of concluding a nuclear deal with Iran that will pave the way for the ayatollahs to develop nuclear weapons and expand their hegemonic control over the Middle East.
Amid of this, and facing 22 months of ever more hostility as Obama pursues his goal of ending the US-Israel alliance, Israelis are called on to elect a new government.
Israeli party leaders, Benjamin Netanyahu and Isaac Herzog
This week the consortium of former security brass that has banded together to elect a leftist government led by Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni accused Netanyahu of destroying Israel’s relations with the US. The implication was that a government led by Herzog and Livni will restore Israel’s ties to America.
Yet as Obama has made clear both throughout his tenure in office, and, over the past week through Malley’s appointment and Menendez’s indictment, Obama holds sole responsibility for the deterioration of our ties with our primary ally. And as his actions have also made clear, Herzog and Livni at the helm will receive no respite in US pressure. Their willingness to make concessions to the Palestinians that Netanyahu refuses to make will merely cause Obama to move the goalposts further down the field. Given his goal of abandoning the US alliance with Israel, no concession that Israel will deliver will suffice.
And so we need to ask ourselves, which leader will do a better job of limiting the danger and waiting Obama out while maintaining sufficient overall US support for Israel to rebuild the alliance after Obama has left the White House.
The answer, it seems, is self-evident.
The Left’s campaign to blame Netanyahu for Obama’s hostility will make it all but impossible for a Herzog-Livni government to withstand US pressure that they say will disappear the moment Netanyahu leaves office.  (Read it all in a new window
Knowledgable individuals we recorded in Washington and Nashville agreed with Mr. Netanyahu's exposing the Obama administration's strategy to not stop Israel's enemy Iran from continuing to amass refined uranium for 10-years. And these experts also objected to Obama pressuring Netanyahu and Democrats interested to listen to him- while former Obama campaign organizers operated an election campaign in Israel to defeat Mr. Netanyahu.
