No “Change” In Israeli Manipulation Of U.S. Foreign Policy Under Obama

President elect Barack Obama’s first act of “change” upon winning the Democratic presidential nomination back in June was to don a joint US-Israeli label pin, head on over to AIPAC and prostrate himself in front of the Israeli lobby, vowing to keep military action in mind for Iran and promising to hand over another $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money in military assistance to the Zionist state.
Along with his recent appointment of Rahm Emanuel, the once Israeli army soldier who likes to make death threats to his political enemies while manically plunging a knife into a dinner table, Israel has little reason to worry that the man who promised “change” will lift a finger to change Israeli manipulation of American foreign policy.
Indeed, when Emanuel’s appointment was confirmed, top Israeli newspaper the Maariv Daily hailed the news with the headline, “Our man in the White House.”
Another Israeli news outlet, Y Net, reports, “Emanuel is pro-Israeli, and would not be willing to consider accepting the job unless he was convinced that President-elect Obama is pro-Israel.”
It seems that Obama has already answered the question of whether he can be a more hardcore Israel hard-liner than George W. Bush – ‘yes he can’!
Harking back to a Washington Post report about Obama’s visit to AIPAC, we find that Obama “even outdid President Bush in his pro-Israel sentiments,” garnering 13 standing ovations and even trying out a Hebrew phrase on the crowd.
The Post said Obama “sounded as if he were Jewish,” as he told the crowd, “I had grown up without a sense of roots, I understood the Zionist idea, that there is always a homeland at the center of our story.”
We also learn that Obama “offered more military equipment and missile defense for Israel, vowed to “isolate Hamas,” and threatened to “do everything in my power to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. Everything in my power. . . . Everything.”
“The danger from Iran is grave, it is real, and my goal will be to eliminate this threat,” said Obama, “I will always keep the threat of military action on the table to defend our security and our ally, Israel. Do not be confused.”
If the first few days of Obama’s preparations for the Oval Office, he has sent out a clear signal that if anything he will be more pro-Zionist than the Bush regime, firstly by his already established submissive fealty to AIPAC and secondly with his appointment of ‘The Enforcer’ Rahm Emanuel as chief-of-staff, the son of a Zionist terrorist who helped the widely condemned Irgun group bomb hotels, marketplaces and carry out massacres in the 1940’s.
Obama has already begun to deliver on the “change” that he had promised all along. The Bush administration bent over backwards to accommodate Israel and acted on their desire to invade Iraq, yet stopped short of the fulfilling Israel’s demand to attack Iran. It seems Obama, with his “military option on the table” rhetoric and his installment of a hardcore pro-Israel sympathizer in the White House, is pandering to an even greater extent.
