Israel Decries US “Knife In Back”
"I Don't Mind A Parasite. I Object To A Cut-Rate One."

So begins the headline of an AFP news release by Jean-Luc Renaudie which discusses how one of our staunchest allies in the Middle East – Israel – is reacting to President Obama’s newfound “flexibility” in foreign affairs. Here are the highlights:

“Jerusalem (AFP) - Washington's support for a new Palestinian government backed by Israel's Islamist foe Hamas, has left the Jewish state feeling betrayed, triggering a new crisis with its closest ally.

Several Israeli ministers expressed public anger on Tuesday after the US State Department said it was willing to work with the new Palestinian unity government put together by the West Bank leadership and Gaza's Hamas rulers.

"I have to say I do not understand this American announcement," said Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz, accusing Washington of saying one thing behind closed doors and another in public.

The US endorsement was viewed as a major blow for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who had on Sunday urged the international community not to rush into recognising the new government, which he said would only "strengthen terror."

"Unfortunately, American naivety has broken all records," said Communications Minister Gilad Erdan, a cabinet hardliner who is close to Netanyahu.

"Collaborating with Hamas, which is defined as a terror organisation in the United States, is simply unthinkable.”

"US capitulation to Palestinian tactics badly damages the chance of ever returning to negotiations and will cause Israel to take unilateral steps to defend its citizens from the government of terror which Abu Mazen (Abbas) has set up."

Public radio said Netanyahu was feeling "betrayed and deceived," particularly as he had assured his security cabinet that US Secretary of State John Kerry had promised him Washington would not recognise the new government immediately.

"And it wasn't immediate -- it was five hours later that this recognition took place," the radio noted ironically.

A senior political official quoted by the Israel Hayom freesheet, widely regarded as Netanyahu's mouthpiece, said the US move was "like a knife in the back."

So it’s not only soldiers that have actually served “with honor and distinction” who get “a knife in the back” from the Obama administration – now it’s one of our most reliable allies. Aside from Great Britain, I can think of no other foreign government that has historically so firmly stood with us through thick and thin as the country of Israel. Now they feel “betrayed and deceived” by a President who is proving every day that Bill Clinton was right when he said:

“Obama doesn't know how to be president. He doesn't know how the world works. He's incompetent. He's an amateur!"

As United States prestige and credibility around the world crumbles before our very eyes - YOU ARE THERE!

The damage this cat has done will take years to repair. Israel has stood by us for years in the hardest of times. This administration has betrayed them at many levels. This train wreck has the potential to find the US standing all alone sooner than most would think
