    Obama’s Anti-Zionism

    by Daniel Pipes
    The Washington Times
    January 22, 2013

    N.B.: Some small differences from the Washington Times version, which is titled “Obama second term bodes trouble for Israel”

    Were Barack Obama re-elected, I predicted two months before the Nov. 2012 presidential vote, “the coldest treatment of Israel ever by a U.S. president will follow.” Well, election’s over and that cold treatment is firmly in place. Obama has signaled in the past two months what lies ahead by:

    • Choosing three senior figures – John Kerry for State, John Brennan for the CIA, and Chuck Hagel for Defense – who range from clueless to hostile about Israel.
    • Approving a huge gift of advanced weapons – 20 F-16 fighter jets and 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks – to the Islamist government in Egypt despite the fact that its president, Mohamed Morsi, has becoming increasingly despotic and calls Jews “blood-suckers, … warmongers, the descendants of apes and pigs.”
    • Reiterating the patronizing 35-year old tactic relied upon by anti-Israel types to condemn Israeli policies while pretending to be concerned for the country’s welfare: “Israel doesn’t know what its own best interests are.”
    • Ignoring evidence of Cairo importing Scud missile parts from North Korea.
    • Rebuffing the 239 House members who called for closing the PLO office in Washington in response to the PLO’sdrive for state-observer status at the United Nations.


    The three nominees – Chuck Hagel, John Kerry, John Brennan.

    Asked about Obama’s nomination of Hagel, Ed Koch, the former New York City mayor who, despite his astringent criticism of Obama nonetheless endorsed him for re-election, offered an astonishing response: “I thought that there would come a time when [Obama] would renege on … his support of Israel [but this] comes a little earlier than I thought.” Even Obama’s pro-Israel supporters expected him to turn against the Jewish state!

    These anti-Israel steps raise worries because they jibe with Obama’s early anti-Zionist views. We lack specifics, but we know that he studied with, befriended, socialized, and encouraged Palestinian extremists. For example:


    Rashid Khalidi, former PLO functionary, then Obama pal.

    A picture from 1998 shows him listening reverentially to anti-Israel theoristEdward Said. Obama sat idly by as speakers at an event in 2003 celebratingRashid Khalidi, a former PLO public relations operative, accused Israel of waging a terrorist campaign against Palestinians and compared “Zionist settlers on the West Bank” to Osama bin Laden. Ali Abunimah, an anti-Israel agitator, commended Obama in 2004 for “his call for an even-handed approach to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict,” code words for distancing the U.S. government from Israel. In turn, Obama praised Abunimah for his obsessively anti-Israel articles in the Chicago Tribune, urging him to “Keep up the good work!” 

    Abunimah also reveals that, starting in 2002, Obama toned down his anti-Israel rhetoric “as he planned his move from small time Illinois politics to the national scene” and Obama made this explicit two years later, apologizing to Abunimah: “Hey, I’m sorry I haven’t said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race. I’m hoping when things calm down I can be more up front.”

    And Obama dutifully made the requisite policy changes, if in a cramped and reluctant manner (“I have to deal with him every day” he whined about Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu). He supported Israel in its 2008-09 and 2012 wars with Hamas. His administration called the Goldstone Report “deeply flawed” and backed Israel at the United Nations with lobbying efforts, votes, and vetoes. Armaments flowed. The Israeli exception to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty remained in place. When Ankara canceled Israeli participation in the 2009 “Anatolian Eagle” air force exercise, the U.S. government pulled out in solidarity. If Obama created crises over Israeli housing starts, he eventually allowed these to simmer down.


    A joint exercise patch for an exercise that never took place, available now on eBay for US$9.99.

    Returning to the present: Netanyahu’s likely re-election as Israeli prime minister this week will mean continuity of leadership in both countries. But that does not imply continuity in U.S.-Israel relations; Obama, freed from re-election constraints, can finally express his early anti-Zionist views after a decade of political positioning. Watch for a markedly worse tone from the second Obama administration toward the third Netanyahu government. 

    Recalling what Obama said privately in March 2012 to the then-Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev (“This is my last election and after my election, I have more flexibility”), there is every reason to think that, having won that re-election, things have now “calmed down” and, after a decade of caution, he can “be more up front” to advance the Palestinian cause against Israel.

    I also predicted in September that “Israel’s troubles will really begin” should Obama win a second term. These have begun; Jerusalem, brace for a rough four years.

    1. shachalnur says:

      “End the occupation” and “jewish voices for peace”,ran a full page ad in Roll Call.

      “President Obama;Hold Israel accountable,80.000 have your back”.

      Sure,jews having Adolf Obama’s back ,while he sacrifices millions of jews,following his bankermasters orders.
      This is a repetition of the 1930’s where the Zionist had Hitler’s back.
      There’s no bigger threat to Israel than bankercontrolled Obama.

    2. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:

      Have you Kerry’s statement concerning Morsi anti-semetism a.nd Egypt’s elections

    3. steven l says:

      The West wants to impose a 2 states solution but the Muslims do not want any part of it, therefore they want preconditions. What does the West not understand?

    4. Honey Bee says:

      @ steven l:

      Yes they do understand, they don’t give a s***, upps they don’t care!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey Bee,

      Don’t know what you refer to,please

      I’m in shock my comment got 2 likes,0 dislikes.
      Expected 20 thumbs down.
      Read it again,this should go against everything readers here believe in.
      I’m worried.

    6. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:

      Darlin, they agree with your assesment of “Adolph” Obama. Kerry made a statement[which I thought to be in favor Morsi’s election] at the Senate Hearings. His statement put me in ind o the USAs acceptence of Hitler and Germany in 1937.

    7. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey bee,

      I understand that,but to state that there’s ignorant Jewish Bankerslaves that have Obama’s back,like the Zionists before ww2 had Hitler’s back?
      These are facts,but not accepted by “Modern Zionism”.
      Therefore a repetition is difficult to prevent.
      There were hardly any players that didn’t support Hitler,at least untill 1943.(Britain,Holland,US,Zionism and all the British/US Bankers.)
      If readers here agree that Obama is very dangerous for Israel/Judaism,wouldn’t it be better to delve into the reasons this guy got to power in the US?
      Why are the ADL and AIPAC not in unison,ADL supporting Obama.
      ADL was created in 1913 long before the Shoah,and was mainly active attacking anybody critizising The Bankers,
      It’s imperative Judaism recognizes the hand that feeds,controls and sacrifices them,to avoid a repeat of 40-45.

    8. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:

      Read Yamit’s retelling of the “Rape of Dinah”, and Jacob and Levi’s responce. Jacob wished to ” get along” with his neighbors at Dinah’s expence, Levi wished to defend her. Those “as a Jew” who support Obama are like Jacob.

    9. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey bee,

      know the story,but it’s not the issue.
      People ,and Jews for that matter,are weak.
      Give them power,money,fear, an enemy and a feeling of belonging,and they’ll be enslaved.
      Are you aware that ,given the birthrates amongst Jews since ’45 ,there are 20 million Jews “missing” today?
      These jews,many of them European,took distance from Judaism,assimilated,unwilling and unable to buy into the Zionist narrative.
      Judaism became a sect,sponsored,used and controlled by Bankers.
      The real Jews are the one’s fighting the Pharao,knowing that if they don’t, Judaism will perish.
      There’s thousands of them all over the Internet.
      Israel is a controlled asylum,holding Judaism and the world hostage.
      Thank G_d Nethanyahu can’t call himself “Leader of the JEWISH people” anymore.It makes me puke everytime I hear it.

    10. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:

      Israel is a resservation for Jews, is this what your saying?

    11. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey Bee,

      Nope,not a reservation.
      Israel has been run ,from the beginning,by Atheist,Communist Khazar’s taking orders from British Bankers.
      Judaism turned into “Chosenite Holocaustianity”.
      World Jewry had to choose;
      Accept that judaism became a political program through Zionism,or take distance from this monster.
      20 million jews took distance in disgust,the rest(religious Jews) stuck to Satmer,Netorei karta.
      Israeli and US jews are not behaving like Jews.
      They are slaves,that bought into a non-Jewish narrative,a continuation of the Nazi,Communist movements.
      Israeli Jews are a suicidal sect,and will follow orders from the Pharao,alternatives are all but gone.
      Israel was designed to destroy itself ,once it has served it’s purpose for the Pharao.
      The order has been given,and there are signs that some people in Israel are waking up.but it still looks very bleak.
      Paranoia,lies and superiority complex is a lethal combination for any sect.

    12. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:

      “And G-d spoke to Job,from out of the whirl wind, saying “where you you when I laid the foundations of the universe”. Either you have faith or not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    13. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey Bee,

      The ones facing and fighting the Pharao,are the ones with faith,because without faith you can’t beat him.
      Without faith you won’t be able to suffer the abuse by fellow(enslaved) Jews.
      And you have to take care that you don’t harm the enslaved.
      Do you have an explanation for the 20 million missing jews?
      They lost their faith,not their faith in Judaism,but faith in what Judaism has become under Rothschild Zionism.

    14. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey Bee,
      My given name by the Mayan here is “Sutum ‘ik”,
      It’s the force that brings clarity ,that takes away the fog and the rubbish.
      The translation is “Whirl wind”.
      Most Rabbi’s agree that the symbol of the whirlwind has to do with exposing what’s hidden.
      Old cultures are not dumb,and share the same knowledge.
      Modern Zionism has no knowledge ,just spin ,lies and manipulation.
      Judaism became Evangelism on steroids,a nightmare,and whirlwinds are a tool to create clarity.
      Just a tool,fueled by Faith.

    15. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur:h

      Who is Pharoh, I am having problem understanding you. What Rothschild,where. Jewish bankers.

    16. the phoenix says:

      shachalnur Said:

      My given name by the Mayan here is “Sutum ‘ik”,

      read carefully and pay attention to the CORRECT pronunciation (and to the one word missing…) , and btw it is in hebrew not mayan…
      here it goes :
      satum (balum)

    17. Honey Bee says:

      @ shachalnur

      De donde vive. Conosco Mucho Mayan de Merida

    18. Honey Bee says:

      @ the phoenix:

      what is btw

    19. shachalnur says:

      @ Honey Bee,

      I’m not sure you want to here this.

      Me’ir Amshel Bauer,changed his name into Rothschild(1750).
      In Hebrew that would be “Shield of Edom”.
      Bauer(bet-alef-wav-alef-resh)= 210.
      He changed his name again in 1802,210 years ago.
      Me’ir(bright,illuminated) became “Mayer”(Leadsman,Mayor).Thus enslaving the Jews.
      In 1815 he took control of the British economy(mainstream history)
      In 1913 Rothschild took control of the US economy,creating the Federal Reserve.(mainstream history)
      Their coat of arms is 5 arrows with a ribbon in the shape of a bow.
      You will only find this symbol in Israel on the wall of the Israeli Supreme Court.
      They build a sword-shaped diagram in the centre of Jerusalem.
      Sword is Cherev(Get-resh-bet)= 210.
      The tip of this sword is called “Feller of Rocks”(feller-“Ghazar”(gimmel-zain-resh)= 210.
      Next to the tip of the sword is the Temple Mount(oldest mention in the Torah=”Hahar”(heh-heh-resh)=210.
      Shield (of Edom)-Bow-Sword.
      Isaiah 21:15 Flee from outstreched sword,bent bow.
      Flee= “Redu”(resh-dalet-wav)= 210.

      the Rothschild’s became a Satanistic sect that is enacting the Gog and Magog story.
      They love symbolism,dates and they leave traces of their actions ,to show how stupid they think we are.
      They hide everything in plain view.
      They’ll blow up the Dome of the Rock,to start it all.
      Rothschild has the money,power,control and slaves to pull this off.
      Judaism became slaves of these Satanists, Political Rothschild Zionism is one of the weapons they have to control Judaism and the world.

      Totally crazy,even when there’s serious people(inside and outside Israel) that agree with me that this sword diagram is no coincidence.
      This kind of weirdness might not for you Honey Bee,you like Cowboys and stuff.

      By the way

    21. shachalnur says:

      @ the Phoenix,

      balum is close to balam or bolom,which is Jaguar.
      “Sutum ‘ik” is Yucateca Maya.(circling wind,cleaning wind)
      I speak 7 languages,amongst them Hebrew,and a Mayan dialect.
      You might have gotten into a mess with a google search.

      Rap your frontal lobe around this. The Germans are BACK!!!!

      The Real Story Behind Germany’s Gold Recall

      “Did you hear the news? Germany, the world’s second largest gold-holding nation, is recalling some of its gold. The Germans are bringing the physical metal – once on hold outside its borders – back in country.

      This is a huge development in the world gold market.

      Today let’s connect a few more dots, and talk gold…

      Germany, Russia, Ronald Reagan, Clausewitz, this story has it all. Let’s start by covering a distant memory, the Cold War….”

      ******This is interesting because all your conspiracy nut-cakes have been ranting that there is no Gold and that America had long sold it.

      Nurka’leh, I am not going to get into a ‘pi**ing contest’ with you. But just FYI, satum/balum is Hebrew. VERY Hebrew, and you not understanding it…. Let’s just say kind of puts in doubt your ‘seven languages’ (I only speak five, but those that I do speak, I speak and am not counting ability to ‘get by’ in another language as actually speaking it)
      I TRULY wish you well, and I only find you amusing/entertaining.

      I am certain that you REALLY believe your stuff and all but….nurka’leh, step back TRY to read what you posted, others’ reply (particularly Bernard, who’s got a boundless patience)
      And you might also come to the same conclusion that you’re nuts.
      Best wishes though.

      I have some family named Rothchild. I doubt if there is any connection to the banking family but I wish there was. Maybe they will adopt anyone with the same family name? :(

    27. shachalnur says:

      @ the phoenix,

      meod mitstaer,chashavti she ratsita lelamed oti maya.

      Mavoi Satum?
      Otzar Balum?

      I simply didn’t understand you.
      My hebrew based on 7 years in Israel,in the 80’s.

      Thank you for wishing me well,and I’m happy to be a source of amusement.
      I’m used to people having their doubts about me,I say weird things,do weird things,live a weird life.
      But sometimes things change when the things I say or do,turn out to be not that weird.
      But in the end,I’m still weird.

      Since you are so knowledgeble,could you have a look at the sword diagram story.
      Please tell me how a thing like that shows up in Jerusalem,all build by European and American bankers since 1932-33.
      The Egyptian symbolism and total absence of any Jewish symbolism in the Israeli Supreme Court.
      Cherev (shel)Bauer ghazar hahar=210?
      This stuff caused an Israeli prison psychologist(?)to feel very strange.

      We’re living strange times right now,The phoenix.
      There are some weirdo’s like me.
      Does it bother you?

      @ Yamit82,

      Nope ,you didn’t understand a word I’ve been saying.
      I said Obama is banker controlled,and Romney as president of the US would have been a coup d’etat AGAINST the bankers.

      The germans are back?

      The Germans never went,
      The most powerfull families in the world since the beginning of the 1800’s are,
      The British Royal House
      The Dutch Royal House

      Not all of them jews ,BUT ALL OF THEM GERMANS.
      Remember Edward VIII.

      Please read my sword story and my comment on “blast on iran nuclear instalation?”

      I’m not joking,and I think you’re starting to find out.

      About your hebrew anthics;
      Mayans are strange people,Rabbi’s are studying them because they have knowledge that coincides with old middle Eastern culture.
      They are not descendents of Asians,as was long thought.
      Their “book of creation”(Popol Vuj) is similar to the Tanach.
      Important words in thier language sound Hebrew.
      Cosmovision;13 levels of upper world(supramundo,heaven)(Jacob’s Ladder?).
      Their language knows the structure of “Roots”(shoreshiem).
      Their old books contain the mention of two man that came from the East,one was called “Jacavitch”.
      They are called their “fathers”.(Didn’t Jacov’s soul go to the West after he was buried in a cave in Egypt?)
      Pyramids mathematically based on Jozeph’s pyramid.

      Can you explain me where 20 million jews went since 1945?mr.Ross refuses to discuss this.
