After Obama kicked off the weekend by struggling to keep a straight face while bragging about what a great friend he is to Israel, we had his hand-picked ambassador to Belgium (who, just co-incidentally, happens to also be a big Obama campaign fundraiser) blaming Israel for inciting anti-semitism, which was followed by his Defense Secretary blaming Israel for Turkey's Islamic bent, Egypt's Islamic takeover, and the failure of the Palestinians to negotiate in good faith for the last quarter-century.
But don't worry. Obama's trying not to pat himself on the back, because his administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration!. This, even as his appointees works overtime to justify every bit of paranoid hatred her enemies hold against her, as well as legitimizing anti-semitism worldwide - which endangers Jews not only in Israel, but here in America and everywhere else in the world as well.
But what's the Jewish population in Israel, anyway? A Charles Krauthammer column from a year ago informs us, and if the number doesn't put a chill down your spine, it should:
The world is tired of these troublesome Jews, 6 million -- that number again -- hard by the Mediterranean, refusing every invitation to national suicide. For which they are relentlessly demonized, ghettoized and constrained from defending themselves, even as the more committed anti-Zionists -- Iranian in particular -- openly prepare a more final solution.
And a certain American president turns his eyes away as the knives are being sharpened.
The blood of the first six million were shed by the Germans, following the orders of their delusional Furher. The next six million? Well, the Muslims may lust for a genocide, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be the man to push the button, but Barack Obama is there on the scene as well - not as a deterrent or the cold hard voice of a conscious, mind you, but working instead to steady the madman's hand...
Wait...where have I seen that little salute before...?
