Is the Obama Administration an enemy of Israel? To answer that question, we must travel a course of time. Just over sixty-three years ago on May 14, 1948, the Jewish People’s Council met in the Tel Aviv Museum and approved a proclamation declaring the establishment of the state of Israel. On the following day, May 15, the United States formally recognized the new state. Yes, we were the very first nation to recognize modern-day Israel.

And for most of the next 60 years there would be no better relationship between any two peoples than that of the United States and Israel. Many Jews would even hold dual American-Israeli citizenships. Clearly, we had a very special relationship.

But, the moment the Obama administration moved into the White House that relationship began to change. Since the days of his campaigning, the President has come to be associated with the word “change.” And just like all of his other changes, this too would be a bad one.

Today, the relationship between the U.S. and Israel is worse than it has been at any other time in history. But why? Why is it that we are at odds with our only friend in the Middle East? Since every American Administration since 1948 has been pro-Israel, both Democrat and Republican, why do we now have a president that is not only anti-Israel but pro-Arab, a position contrary to both orthodox Christianity and Americanism? Why is the Obama Administration an enemy of Israel?

To answer these questions we must consider that long before reaching the White House Obama was being groomed to be what he is today. And much of that grooming would take place in Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ. The preacher was the Rev. Dr. Jeremiah Wright, a black fiery minister famous for anti-Jew and anti-white rhetoric.

As E. W. Jackson Sr., a black clergyman himself sees it, the President was tutored for twenty years by the anti-Semitic Wright. Jackson writes that in a black community one doesn’t just attend a church; he “sits under” the pastor. But not only did Obama sit under Wright, he also assisted Nation of Islam’s leader, Louis Farrakhan, in preparation for the Million Man March. And not surprisingly, Wright and Farrakhan are close friends.

Jeremiah Wright’s doctrine is that of Black Liberation which views Jesus as a black who was persecuted by white Romans. Of course, we know such doctrine is contrary to Scripture that makes clear Jesus was and is a Jew. Black Liberation Theology also views the Palestinians as being oppressed by Israeli occupiers. Plus, they consider all Israeli land beyond its 1948 borders as illegal. Under such doctrine even parts of Jerusalem is not within the state of Israel. And what is so troubling is that this is the same position held by President Obama.

As to whether or not Obama is a Muslim, the jury is still out. But it is quite clear he has Muslim sensibilities in that he sees the world, particularly Israel, from a Muslim perspective. Equally troubling is that this perceptive is also that of the radical Muslim Brotherhood. It is indeed revealing for an American president to align himself with those of such thinking. And no less revealing is his joining of the anti-Israel U.N. Human Rights Council.

But what, specifically, is it that Obama and other leftists want in regards to Israel and the Palestinians? They want fulfillment of the Arab League’s Initiative, which Israel’s defenders say would leave the state with truncated, indefensible borders, and threaten the state’s Jewish character by compelling it to take in millions of foreign Arabs.

According to an Egyptian official, as reported by WorldNetDaily in November 2008, people aligned with Obama met with Arab countries and were receptive with the initiative. Note this was just two months prior to Obama being sworn in as America’s 44th president.

The Arab Initiative was introduced first by the Saudis in 2002, and calls for Israel to give up the Golan Heights, all of the Gaza Strip, and West Bank, lands seized by Israel in1967 when attacked by Arab countries. Refusing to recognize Israel as a legitimate state, its neighbors were intent on driving every Israeli into the sea. And had they been successful, not a single Israeli would have survived, and what had become a haven for Jews would today be Arab territory.

But the Arabs grossly miscalculated the Israelis’ resolve. Not only were they unsuccessful in crushing the Israelis, but the Jews dealt the Arabs a devastating defeat. And in so doing, they captured lands the Arabs are today demanding be returned. Clearly, God protected His people and led them to a swift victory!

Historically, lands captured during times of war became property of the victors. And had the Arabs won, that certainly would have been the outcome; there would be no Israel today. But since they lost the war, they feel the rule should be set aside. And 44 years later they are still making their unrealistic demands, yet Israel is still hanging tough.

But, return of lands is not the only thing in the Arab Initiative. They also demand all displaced or expelled Palestinians be given the right of return. That means the 725,000 who once lived in present-day Israel, and their offspring, an estimated 5 million in total, would be eligible for return. One can only imagine what horror the state of Israel would be forced to endure if 5 million hostile people were allowed to join the 7.75 million Jews; Israel would be in serious trouble from day one. Worse yet, within a few short years the Arab population would exceed that of the Jews and the Jewish state would cease to exist.

Israel’s position has always been that dispersed Arabs would be allowed to resettle in the yet-to-be-determined Palestinian state, but not within the Jewish state itself. Additionally, its future borders would necessarily include some of the territory seized during the 1967 war. And the reason simply is that if it went back to its 1948 borders, part of which was only nine miles wide, it would no longer be able to defend itself. Just imagine living in a state where the enemy can easily strike any target within with rockets or mortars. No reasonable people would voluntarily give into any such demands. But that is exactly what the Arab Initiative and the Obama Administration seeks.

In regards to the right of return issue, it should be understood that during the 1948 and 1967 wars, not only were Arabs displaced but so were 820,000 Jews. Israel allowed all of the 820,000 to settle within its state. However, the Arab states made no such concession to the Palestinians. Instead, they chose to place the 725,000, now 5 million, in U.N. refuge camps under the worst possible living conditions, making them their “poster child” for trumped up charges against Israel as occupier and oppressor.

This just goes to show how low an abominable people will stoop to obtain what they want. And what the want is for every Jew to be pushed into the sea and the land turned over to them. And they will fight until they achieve their goal or they themselves are destroyed. For, we have been forewarned by Scripture: “And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou art with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man’s hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren” (Gen 16:11-12).

For anyone to believe the Arabs or Palestinians want peace with Israel is to suggest that person is naiveté beyond description. It would be easier to believe “the moon is made of cheese.”

So, what is next on the Palestinian agenda? Just three months ago in May of this year, Palestinian officials said they would go to the U.N. in September, unilaterally seeking statehood. But surprisingly, President Obama was critical of the plan, cautioning the Palestinians against any attempt to de-legitimize the state of Israel, stating symbolic actions before the U.N. would not create a Palestinian state. Hopefully, his comments will deter the Palestinians from going forward with their plan.

It seems at least in part that Obama’s comments were in response to the Fatah-Hamas partnership, considering Hamas refuses to recognize the legitimacy of the state of Israel.

Ironically, the Fatah-Hamas association may yet prove to be a good thing for Israel. Still, I fear it will be but a bump in the road; Obama has given no indication thus far that he has softened his position on Israel. It is just that even he hopes to avoid a Middle-East bloodbath, let alone a political firestorm here in the U.S.

    Dr., you are a prolific writer. I admire your tenacity, and I share your views.
    Obama is not only Israels enemy, he is Americas enemy in my opinion.
    Many consider him a muslim. I do not. I believe that he is an avowed Marxist, and as such would surely be an atheist.
    He considers, again, in my opinion, the muslims, as political bedfellows with the same goals of bringing down the West, Israel, Christianity and Capitalism.
    I have a friend who has a Conservative blog site called the Bold Pursuit. I encourage you to submit a blog or two to her. It would be a good vehicle to generate traffic to your writing.
