The U.S. government has a multiple personality disorder. Since the day American companies became involved with oil in the Middle East, the U.S. government has displayed several completely different personalites. Especially when dealing with Israel.
America supports Israel. Well sorta, kinda, on certain days, on certain issues. And when America is not sorta, kinda supporting Israel, it is undermining Israel's very existence. But rather than give you a history lesson on the countless times America has dealt with Israel underhandedly, let me tell you a little story instead.
In a town called Boston, there was a horrible crime committed. Bags containing explosives were detonated in a public place. Death and carnage resulted. A nation was stunned (at least the part of the nation who lived with their heads in the sand except for when they came up for air and to watch the mainstream media and E! Entertainment).
An all out manhunt ensued. One terrorists down, the other still at large. A massive lockdown crippled a major city until the wounded animal was cornered. Cheers were heard in the Boston streets as the heroes who captured the animal wearily drove home. And a country went back to its daily routine, confident that the terrorist would be brought to justice. (Well at least the head-in-the-sand-msm-watching crowd was confident. Others who knew a bit about modern American history worried that if the domestic terrorist made a recovery he would probably be offered a job as a professor in Chicago and become pals with a future American president. Google Bill Ayers if you don’t know what I’m talking about.)
Back to my narrative. After a drawn out trial, which took longer because of breaks to let the terrorist celebrate Ramadan and to let him pray 5 times a day, (after all, the terrorist became a more disciplined Muslim while in jail) he was sentenced with a very long prison sentence. More cheers from Americans! (Except for the ones who thought he should just be given art therapy. Google Gitmo Art Therapy.) Case closed. Or so we thought. Until a call from the Chinese government came.
During the long Boston bombing trial a funny thing happened. The US slipped from it’s #1 spot as the world's super power and the Chinese slipped in. (That multi-trillion dollar debt thingy, it really did matter. But certain demographics didn’t care as long as women retained their right to choose an abortion. And besides, voting for Obama was the cool thing to do.) Anyhoo, the call came and what did the Chinese have the audacity to say? They told America to let the Boston terrorist go. No really, they said to give the terrorist a “Get Out of Jail Free” card ASAP. Why on earth would the Chinese demand such an outrageous thing?
Well, the Chinese leaders were tired of the whole squabble between Americans and radical Muslims, ie Muslims. They just wanted everybody to get along (translation, do what the damn Arabs want because we have become dependent on their oil). Muslims who were unhappy living in the oil-rich dictator controlled Arab countries moved to America. Yet once in America, many of them remained unhappy while watching Americans live happily. So they blamed their unhappiness on the happiness and freedom of the Americans. Make sense? No, it never does. Well, one day some Muslims decided they would be happier if their fellow Muslim, aka the Boston terrorist, was out of jail. After all, in their minds it was the American way of life that drove him to bomb happy free Americans in the first place.
The new super-power of the world understood the plight of the unhappy Muslims, so they demanded America give the Muslim cry babies exactly what they wanted. Because we all know that giving a child who throws a temper tantrum exactly what he want ensures future peace and tranquility. Right? Whatever it took to keep the Muslims happy. Because happy Muslims = free flowing Arab oil. See, isn’t that neat, everybody is happy. Expect for the ones who get screwed in order to make the happy deal. (Google “The Secret War Against the Jews”).
So one bright, clear Bostonian day, at the demands of the Chinese, who had become dependent on Arab oil, the terrorist walked free. Some say he had a smug smile on his face. But it was hard to tell since he was surrounded by cheering Muslims giving him a hero’s welcome and by little boys looking up at him adoringly thinking, “Someday, I want to be just like him.”
Sound ludicrous? Yes, it is completely ludicrous and it has been happening in Israel for years. And guess who has made the calls telling Israel to release convicted terrorists from prison? You guessed it, America.
Days after experiencing terrorism on its own soil via the Boston bombings, the U.S. demanded again that Israel release convicted terrorists from prison as a good will gesture towards the Palestinian Authority. In 2009, Obama demanded that Israel release 1,000 convicted terrorists to appease the PA. Yes, you read that right. One thousand. One can only imagine what would happen if the US made some other demands. For starters, what if they demanded that the PA removed from their national charter the intent to destroy Israel? What if they demanded the PA stop naming streets and town squares after suicide bombers? What if they demanded the PA stop giving payments to terrorists’ families? What if they demanded that terrorists quit receiving a hero’s welcome when released from prison? Or let’s just get crazy and imagine what would happen if the U.S. demanded that the Palestinians stopped killing Jews.
Instead, the U.S. has the audacity of stupidity to actually demand that Israel release terrorists who committed heinous crimes. Amongst the terrorists who the U.S. demanded be released are the terrorists who burned Amnon Pomerantz alive in his car, the terrorists who murdered tractor driver Yigal Vahknin, the terrorist who murdered 39-year-old Gush Katif resident Shaya Deutch, the terrorists who burned to their deaths Rachel Weiss and her three children; Ephraim, Netanel and Raphael as well as soldier David Delarosa who tried to save them, and the terrorist who murdered Professor Menachem Stern in the Valley of the Cross (in Jerusalem) while he was on his way to Hebrew University. Yep, just your run-of-the-mill terrorists.
Not only that, but the U.S. also demanded that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apologize to Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey. Do you know what Netanyahu was told to apologize for? For killing terrorists who tried to kill IDF soldiers. The terrorists’ plans didn't quite work out the way they intended. Instead of the terrorists killing the soldiers, the soldiers killed them. Oops. And instead of applauding the actions of the IDF, America condemned the actions and then demanded that Israel actually apologize that the soldiers saved their own lives. You just can't make this stuff up. But the insanity doesn’t stop there. The U.S. told Israel that it would be a nice gesture for Israel to make monetary concessions to the families of the terrorists who attacked the IDF soldiers. So Israel is literally paying for defending itself because of the preposterous demands of America.
Yes, America with the split personality, has bowed down to the wants and demands of Arab oil king-pins for decades, while at the same time trying to “do the right thing” and support Israel, while at the same time undermining Israel. Yes, I know, it’s confusing. America, who gives aid to Israel with one hand while with the other hand gives aid to organizations and nations who publically vow to destroy Israel. America, who has relentlessly bombed entire nations to defend itself against terrorism, yet continuously demands Israel show restraint in defending itself against terrorism. America, who helped Yasser Arafat ascend as a legitimate leader and gave him millions of dollars of aid, even though he was the “Father of Modern Terrorism.” Yet on the other hand America started the “War on Terror” and practically destroyed a nation while looking for a terrorist, who by the way, at one time we armed. America, who travels thousands of miles to fight terrorism in other countries, yet allows people with known terrorists ties into their own country.
What Americans witnessed in Boston, Israel has witnessed and lived with for decades. Decades. And so Jews, being the smart, resilient people they are, decided to fight and enact many defensive measures against terrorism. Key word: defensive. Say it slowly and try to understand its implications. Israel is trying to defend itself against terrorism.
Checkpoints, aka roadblocks, and security fences are part of those defensive measures. And you know what? They are inconvenient for Arabs. So what does America do, it pressures Israel to make Arabs' "fabric of life" as comfortable as possible. Nevermind that these defensive measures help preserve Jewish lives. That’s beside’s the point. Because remember, where was oil discovered in the Middle East? It wasn’t in Israel. Therefore, Jews’ needs and demands, even lives, became and still are expendable. The U.S. State Department doesn’t seem to mind that practically every time they demand Israel dismantle checkpoints, a terrorist attack happens and Jews are murdered. The “needs” of Arabs, wherever they are, but especially Palestinians, who became the darlings of the Arab world, became a priority to America. Because again, when Arab “needs” are met, America’s needs at the pump are met. (Which brings new meaning to the cry to “Drill, baby, drill!” but that’s a whole other article.)
Bottom-line is that the U.S. foreign policy regarding Israel is sometimes sincere, sometimes a sham, and sometimes maniacal. But more than anything this week, America’s actions scream of hypocrisy and in a very scary way, show a complete lack of understanding of how to deal with terrorists. Instead of locking terrorists up and throwing away the key, America expects Israel to unleash them back into society. And this begs the question, is America’s government just plain stupid, or are they hoping these terrorists will do exactly what they did the first time? Kill Jews and make Muslims happy.
