obama stares at netanyahu

After almost eight years of being the “Leader of the Free World,” Obama still obsesses about Israel as the source of *all* the conflict in the Middle East.

I guess the smartest man in the room doesn’t really need a reality check.

Via Israel National News.

The US State Department has been caught employing a stunning double-standards vis-a-vis Israel and Iran, shedding a light on the antagonism towards the Jewish state by the Obama administration, even as it cozies up to the Islamic Republic.

Last week, State Department spokesman Mark Toner angered officials in Israel, after he criticized the Israeli coalition deal bringing in the right-wing Yisrael Beytenu party as “rais[ing] legitimate questions” over Israel’s commitment to peace.

When asked at a Wednesday press briefing if he “had any comments” about the approaching coalition deal to bring in Avigdor Liberman, Toner responded:

“We have also seen reports from Israel describing it as the most right-wing coalition in Israel’s history and we also know that many of its ministers have said they oppose a two-state solution. This raises legitimate questions about the direction it may be headed in … and what kind of policies it may adopt.”

Yet just a day earlier, Toner had this to say about the election of an extreme anti-American cleric to Iran’s Assembly of Experts, the powerful committee of clerics who will select the next Supreme Leader of Iran.

“One is you’ll have seen, I’m sure, the reports that Ahmad Jannati, a 90-year-old anti-Western cleric, has been chosen as the head of Iran’s new Assembly of Experts, which is in charge of selecting the new or whomever will be the next supreme leader,” Toner was asked. “Is this a good thing? Is this a bad thing? And does this suggest that Iran may be moving toward a more pro-Western, more open-toward-the-West stance?

….Toner’s noncommittal response was telling:

“We follow domestic events in Iran closely, as you know, but we don’t have any comment at this point on the outcome of the leadership elections of the Assembly of Experts.”….

    Obama needs to accept the fact he is not President of the world. He should focus his attention on the countries who have, since his taking office, displayed an attitude of resentment toward America. I’m confident that the rest of the world will breathe a sigh of relief when he leaves office, and those who have display contempt for us, will fall back in line and keep quiet. These nations understand two things, “rounds down range” and “warheads on foreheads”.
