Obama’s true, anti-Semitic col­ors

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL -

It can­not be lost on the ob­ser­vant that one of the last acts of the cur­rent pres­i­dent was his in­struc­tion to his U.N. rep­re­sen­ta­tive to ab­stain from the Se­cu­rity Coun­cil res­o­lu­tion con­demn­ing Is­rael for build­ing new set­tle­ments (“A fi­nal in­sult to Is­rael,” Web, Dec. 25). Ab­sent the courage to vote yes on the res­o­lu­tion, thus demon­strat­ing his pref­er­ence for Pales­tini­ans over Jews, and ab­sent the char­ac­ter to vote against the res­o­lu­tion (up­hold­ing 40 years of Amer­i­can sup­port for Is­rael), Pres­i­dent Obama took the weasel way out and stood aside. This has been the main char­ac­ter­is­tic of his eight years in of­fice.

The field of de­bris left scat­tered around the world is truly breath­tak­ing. We are see­ing the rise of Rus­sia, Iran and China; the explosive and con­tin­ued growth of the Is­lamic State; surg­ing ter­ror­ist threats across Europe; the ex­pan­sion of ter­ror­ist train­ing cen­ters in Ye­men and the coast of Africa; mas­sive il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion across the U.S. south­ern bor­der; and the au­tho­riza­tion of an in­creas­ing flow of po­lit­i­cally op­pressed im­mi­grants im­pos­si­ble to prop­erly vet. Mr. Obama has di­min­ished Amer­ica and turned his back, lit­er­ally, on the very peo­ple who voted him into of­fice.

In re­sponse to his ex­traor­di­nar­ily limpid pres­i­dency, all we can do is re­mem­ber him as the one with no name. Al­ways, and so he shall for­ever re­main a small-minded “com­mu­nity or­ga­nizer,” skilled in ag­i­tat­ing peo­ple, one against the other, whether by eth­nic­ity, class or ed­u­ca­tion; a true so­cial­ist and snake-oil sales­man par ex­cel­lent who made mil­lions be­lieve he was ac­tu­ally go­ing to im­prove the coun­try.
