Cowardly Obama Says Israeli Raid “Tragic”

Just breaking on Drudge comes this story from Yahoo News:

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Thursday that the deadly Israeli raid on an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip was “tragic”, but he stopped short of condemning the actions of Israeli forces.

The only thing tragic during that raid was the fact that Israeli soldiers were brutally beaten with rods and shot at by terrorists posing as “peace activists,” bringing “humanitarian aid,” a laughable farce.  If anyone deserves condemnation, it is the barbarians that were aboard the flotilla, cowards the Israelis would have never touched had they been civil.

While Obama said the deaths of nine people were unnecessary, he said the U.S. wants to wait for “an investigation of international standards” to determine the facts. Israel, he said, should agree to such an investigation.

An “investigation of international standards”…so I am assuming he is looking for another Goldstone Report.  The UN is the most anti-Semitic international institution in existence, and the Israelis of course know that the world, and with President Obama in office, this includes their former staunchest ally, the US, is against them.  Israel should use their time on the stand in the court of public opinion to assert its sovereignty, and not only defy but issue warning to its enemies that any threat to the nation is going to be met with maximal force, and excoriate the governments and their propaganda arms in the media and academia who have criticized them in their hypocritical, baseless Jew-hating.

“They recognize that this can’t be good for Israel’s long-term security,” Obama said in an interview with CNN’s Larry King airing Thursday night.

Right, and it would have been good to let the flotilla through, signaling submission to the Arab world in ending their blockade of Gaza, opening the strip again to rockets which would surely be fired on Israeli civilians.

Monday’s predawn raid of a flotilla attempting to break Israel’s blockade of Gaza has drawn international criticism and calls for Israel to end the blockade. Israel says the blockade is meant to keep weapons out of the hands of Hamas fighters, not keep aid from the reaching the Palestinian people, a view the U.S. generally supports.

The statement “a view the US generally supports,” seems to me quite ambiguous.  Presumably, the majority of the US people stand with Israel against terrorists.  But does this administration generally support this view?  Publicly, I would imagine they would give a soft affirmation of it, but only so as to not be bludgeoned in the 2010 and 2012 elections.  Privately, I would have serious doubts that these folks in power care much about Israel’s right to self-defense given the situation in Iran.

Obama said the most recent incident presents an opportunity for all parties involved to break out of the current impasse and move toward a two-state solution in which Palestinians and Israelis can live peacefully side by side.

“We have been trying to do this piecemeal for decades now,” Obama said. “It just doesn’t work.”

Since I was a child I argued that there would never be a “two-state solution,” and my view has not changed and will never change.  Israel will never be able to live in peace with neighbors that wish to wipe it off the map; that have never ended their Crusade against civilization because Allah so necessitates it.

The Jews have always lived in Palestine, and the Arabs who are Jordanians, not Palestinians, never cared about the land until the Jews were officially granted it.  Further, the Arabs voluntarily left the land, choosing not to live side-by-side with the hated Jews as their leaders told them that Israel would be routed and they would return to Palestine shortly.  What they did not know was that in 1948 the Jewish people would not give in.  Let us pray that they will not give in in 2010 either.
