The Perils Ahead

by Caroline B. Glick - November 14th, 2008 - Jewish World Review

As the election drew closer, the Obama campaign expanded its efforts to present its candidate as a foreign policy moderate. Moderate foreign policy advisors like [Ambassador Dennis] Ross were paraded before reporters. Both Obama and his surrogates insisted that he supports a strong American alliance with Israel. Obama abandoned his earlier pledge to withdraw all US forces from Iraq by 2010. He attempted to temper and later deny his public pledge to hold direct negotiations with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad without preconditions.

Due in large part to media credulousness, Obama's new image as a centrist was widely accepted by the public. And it is likely that Obama owes a significant portion of his support in the American Jewish community to the campaign's success in distancing Obama from men like Brzezinski and Malley.

But now that the campaign is over, it appears that as his critics warned, Obama's moves toward the center on issues relating to the Middle East were little more than campaign tactics to obscure his true policy preferences.

Hatred for George W. Bush has led to the election of a global socialist candidate, and in the words of Jeremiah Wright, the chickens are about to come home to roost. Barack Obama is about to turn American foreign policy into the most severe anti Israel, pro Muslim, advocacy power imaginable. Global socialists like Obama see the Islamo-fascists as a sure ally in the destruction of free markets. Global socialists hate free markets much more than they hate religious fanatics. Therefore Barack Obama cares much more what Islamo-fascists want than what liberal American Jews want.

The only real question at this point is whether Israel goes down fighting, or is destroyed in a slow tyranny of Muslim subversion (and then hidden eradication) as Nazi Germany tried. That may well be decided by whether middle east powers keep the Islamo-fascists from moving too fast to satisfy Barack Obama. It will not matter what the Jews of America want any longer. They have made their bed with Obama and what he wants is all that matters now. It is clear that the Jews were conned into abandoning Israel by the master of stealth, the Magic Marxist Messiah. They can't say they were not warned.
