Sources close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu describe Obama as a “strategic catastrophe” for Israel.
Officials in the Prime Minister’s Office, speaking on condition of anonymity to the nation’s top newspapers, see the Obama administration as a serious threat to the future of the State of Israel. On the record, Israel and the US have a “strategic partnership that is unbreakable”; off the record, the terminology is blunt to say the least.
“President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have drawn a clear line, supporting the Palestinian position at the expense of Israel,” said one Netanyahu confidant. “It is insane, it is sick. Relations between Jerusalem and Washington are simply disastrous; the situation has never been so dangerous. This US President wants to establish a Palestinian state at any price and hand them Jerusalem on a silver platter.”
Netanyahu has repeatedly distanced himself from such statements, but commentators say the government speaks with a forked tongue. “Israel’s relations with the US are at a low point, and Obama poses a danger to Israel,” wrote Nahum Barnea in the nation’s biggest newspaper Yediot Ahronot.
The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.
“The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim,” said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV.
That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term “Islamic extremism” no longer be used in official government documents and statements.
“I Am A Muslim”, Obama Tells Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit
This story is just making its rounds on the blogosphere. The MSM did not pick it up at all. This is important so I’m posting it. Atlas Shrugs has great details if you care to go there.
This is the statement recorded:
Aboul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step-son of Muslim step-father, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda.
Aboul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health- care Reform, he would show the Muslim world how to deal with Israel. LINK
