President Bush Addresses Members of the Knesset and Obama is ‘outraged’? C’mon.
by Jerry Gordon
Watch the video here of President Bush’s speech to the Knesset yesterday that ‘so outraged’ Senator Obama and the Democratic Party elite. The Huffington Post, bastion of dhimmi left radicals blared:”Bush Compares Obama To Nazi Appeasers”. Read the transcript here.
Then ask yourself what ‘so enraged’ Obama to pop off and beat up on Bush. With the exception of one paragraph ,regarding the faint hope of democracy blooming in the autocratic Muslim Middle East and the rise of a virtually non-existent Palestinian state, this was a fairly supportive Zionist speech. Whoever wrote it did a commendable job.
Senator Joseph Lieberman opined on the needless hyped kerfuffle:
“President Bush got it exactly right today when he warned about the threat of Iran and its terrorist proxies like Hamas and Hezbollah. It is imperative that we reject the flawed and naïve thinking that denies or dismisses the words of extremists and terrorists when they shout “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” and that holds that–if only we were to sit down and negotiate with these killers–they would cease to threaten us. It is critical to our national security that our commander-in-chief is able to distinguish between America’s friends and America’s enemies, and not confuse the two.”
A tip of the hat to Dr. Michael Welner who urged me to watch and read the Bush Knesset speech and post both for you to form your opinion.
