Obama Administration: "An Israeli Victim of Terror? No Such Thing!"

Some "best friend".  No wonder Israel is entertaining other suitors...

Some noted last month that Obama agreed to exclude Israel from a global counter-terrorism forum held in Istanbul, bowing to a demand from Turkey’s Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. But it seems as if  Obama likes to have his people operate without those pesky Jews around.   Reality is such as buzzkill, especially for a president and administration that works outside of it.

So Israel wasn’t invited to the second session of the counter-terrorism forum held yesterday in Spain, either. And the Obama administration took advantage of their forced absence to commit quite the affront to the Jews:

Maria Otero, Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights, delivered a speech at the Spanish conclave titled “Victims of Terrorism.” But not only was an Israeli delegation not present when she spoke, but during her address, Otero never even mentioned the experience of Israeli terror victims. Though Otero’s anti-terrorist sentiments were unexceptionable, the exclusion of Israel, one of the primary targets of international terrorists and among the leading experts in how to deal with the problem, was clearly intentional. As Kredo noted, the State Department spokesperson refused to answer when asked about the omission of Israel from the speech and the conference....

Is that Madame Otero, speaking for the same UN "Human Rights" Council that spends 100% of its time de-legitimizing Israel?  Oh, you betcha...!

All this, as we approach the 50th anniversary of the Munich Massacre, another event that Obama, along with the United Nations and Olympic Committee, have sworn to ignore.

Newspeak: These are not Israelis...

This is not the first time Obama or his flacks have played this game. he tried out the "Israel? What's an Israel?" bit shortly after the devestating Haiti earthquake of 2010, when he refused to acknowledge the Israeli involvement in the rescue & recovery operation:

[Obama] noted that, in addition to assistance from the United States, significant aid had also come from "Brazil, Mexico, Canada, France, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic, among others." Am I missing another country that truly weighed in with truly consequential assistance? Ah, yes. There it is. Right there "among others." Yes, the country to which I refer is "among others," that one.

The fact is that, next to our country, Israel sent the largest contingent of trained rescue workers, doctors, and other medical personnel. The Israeli field hospital was the only one on the ground that could perform real surgery, which it did literally hundreds of times, while delivering--as of last week--at least 16 babies, including one premature infant and three caesarians. The first 250-odd Israelis were real professionals, and they were supplemented by others, also professionals. And to these can be added the many organized Jews from the Diaspora who, in solidarity with Israel, also went on a work pilgrimage, an aliyah, in solidarity with Haiti.

It's not that Israeli participation in the Haiti horror was being kept secret. I myself saw it reported several times on television—on ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN.

So didn't Obama notice? For God's sake, everybody noticed the deep Israeli involvement...

Of course he noticed.  But as a raging, hate-filled anti-Semite (see links here), he can no sooner acknowledge Israel's greatness (or pain), than a Palestinian can acknowledge a Jews' right to exist.

And that is so very, very sad, that I cannot even comment on it any further today.  All I will say is that every Jew who votes for Barack Hussein Obama in 2012 will deserve what's to come, and will have the blood of his actions on their hands...
