Will we see the end of Israel? I guess it comes down to which side of Obama will win out: his Christian side or his Muslim side. Israelis are nervous, even considering the above picture of the President on “the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “insult” to Israel.”
They saw the incident as somewhat akin to an incident last year, when the Iraqi reporter threw a shoe at President Bush in Baghdad.
It is considered an insult in the Arab world to show the sole of your shoe to someone. It is not a Jewish custom necessarily, but Israel feels enough a part of the Middle East after 60 years to be insulted too.
Was there a subliminal message intended from the White House to Netanyahu in Jerusalem, who is publicly resisting attempts by Mr. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to force Israel to stop any kind of settlement activity in occupied territories once and forever?
Whether or not it is true, it shows the mood in Israel. They feel cornered. The reactions out of Israel reflect that feeling.
Besides showing a lack of respect for the Presidency (the leader of the free world looks like a stock broker), is the President showing the soles of his shoes sending a message to Israel? His Muslim side along with the Muslim world understand it’s significance.
But that’s the least of Israel’s problems. Dick Morris:
From Caroline Glick, deputy editor and op-ed writer for the Jerusalem Post, comes alarming news. An expert on Arab-Israeli relations with excellent sources deep inside Netanyahu’s government, she reports that CIA chief Leon Panetta, who recently took time out from his day job (feuding with Nancy Pelosi) to travel to Israel “read the riot act” to the government warning against an attack on Iran.
More ominously, Glick reports (likely from sources high up in the Israeli government) that the Obama administration has all but accepted as irreversible and unavoidable fact that Iran will soon develop nuclear weapons. She writes, “…we have learned that the [Obama] administration has made its peace with Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Senior administration officials acknowledge as much in off-record briefings. It is true, they say, that Iran may exploit its future talks with the US to run down the clock before they test a nuclear weapon. But, they add, if that happens, the US will simply have to live with a nuclear-armed mullocracy.”
Have you heard the new “talk” from the Obama Administration? The new thing is that Iran should be able to build nuclear power for energy. This is Obama-speak that it will not lift a finger to stop Iran from developing nuclear weaponry.
The consequences of Obama’s “let’s let Iran have nukes” policy? Dick Morris continues:
All this means is that Israel’s life is in danger. If Iran gets the bomb, it will use it to kill six million Jews. No threat of retaliation will make the slightest difference. One cannot deter a suicide bomber with the threat of death. Nor can one deter a theocracy bent on meriting admission to heaven and its virgins by one glorious act of violence. Iran would probably not launch the bomb itself, anyway, but would give it to its puppet terrorists to send to Israel so it could deny responsibility. Obama, bent on appeasement, would likely not retaliate with nuclear weapons. And Israel will be dead and gone…
…Obama may have held the first White House cedar, but he’s not planning to spend next year in Jerusalem.
Joe Biden has been a gaffe machine – but this comment by him is right on the mark: “Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy [Obama]…I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate.”
I can also give you a scenario where it might originate.
From Rick Santelli on the Chicago Trading floor to Tea Party events springing up around the country – we are seeing signs of a good old fashion, American protest against tyranny.
When a government uses fear tactics, and closed debate in order to shove legislation down our throats – this is tyranny. When a government saddles our children and grand-children with debt they didn’t ask for and cannot possibly pay – this is tyranny. And when a few decide to “change” our way of life, in order to bring about socialism – this is tyranny!
But the issue really comes down to this: what will you do? Will you just sit back, and stare into the abyss of your TV? Will you wait while a few hijack our country – watching your freedoms and your livelihood drain away? Or will you do something?
There is a window of opportunity – there is time before Obama’s road to serfdom is fully in place. We must determine to act now, and make our voices known.
What can we do?
1) Be well informed about the issues, and find news and information sources that you can trust. Hint: it is not the “mainstream” media!
2) Become a news source!
Start a blog, use Myspace, FaceBook, Twitter, etc.to inform your friends of pertinent news and information.
But take it to the next step: ask yourself – what do I really get into? Is it theology, family, politics, social issues, writing, the entertainment industry, music, art, gardening, etc? Become an expert of what you love, and then make it a point to use your expertise and influence in behalf of others.
3) Bring on the heat – contact your elected officials and express your opinion. (That is an experience in itself!)
4) Become involved in the political process.
Run for office, help find good candidates, become part of a political campaign. Changing the House of Representatives in 2010, is the significant first step in protecting our freedoms and our children’s future.
5) Keep up with Tea Party News, attend Tea Party Events, and encourage others to do the same.
May I suggest Michelle Malkin as one of your sources? She has become a focal point in the Tea party Movement, and will keep you informed throughout the day regarding Obama’s road to serfdom.

Please stand up. Make a difference. Start throwing some tea overboard.
The Obama Road to Serfdom – The Stimulus Package
Put yourselves on the ways of long ago and enquire about the ancient paths: which was the good way? Take it then, and you shall find rest. Jeremiah 6:16
Serfdom – a member of a servile feudal class bound to the land and subject to the will of its owner – Merriam-Webster
We are on the Obama Road to serfdom. His call for change doesn’t lead us to a new path, a new road, but a path that has led to failure. His new change is to visit failure again. Instead of following the flow of freedom in the West from a totalitarian state, to freedoms unheard of in world history, Obama’s Road to Serdom will creep us ever closer to socialism – which in turn, will hand over our future to the State, and to servitude.
Instead of a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, that Abraham Lincoln proclaimed, Barack Obama wants us to bow our knee as a people of the government, by the government, and for the government. As a radical leftist, his intention is to bring change. But he wants to change the very fabric of our free society, to remake it, into his and his fellow elite’s image. His goal – to remake the most free, most prosperous, most powerful, most religious country in the world, and reduce it to a European secular socialist state.
The Democrats are now using our economic emergency to shove this agenda down our throats. The Stimulus Package is not about saving the economy, it’s all about saving liberalism and the progressive view of the future. This is a spending bill, and the only thing it is intended to do is stimulate the government. On top of it, this is wanton borrowing – we are not spending what we have, we are borrowing our children’s future.
There are times that define a people. Times that will change history, whether for the good or for the bad. It may sneak up on you, or you may have the foresight to see it coming. But nonetheless, there are times that look at you straight in the eye, challenging you – daring you to do something. Times that will push at you, showing it’s fist, expecting you to back off, so that it’s able to roll in without any hindrance at all.
We are facing one of those times. Obamaworld cometh! You stand there and see the storm coming, the clouds are swirling, and the lightening is flashing in the distance. You wonder if the storm of the times will pass by, or if you will have to go through it’s fury. A storm is like that. You don’t know how bad it will be, until you actually go through it.
What will Obamaworld be like? We won’t know until we go through it. But just as we can see signs from a coming storm to judge what it will do, there are signs of the coming Obamaworld, that may give us a picture.
