A Letter From Israel Regarding Our Presidential Election

Here is a warning from writer Naomi Ragen and Keith Davies of what awaits us in an Obama presidency.

Below is a letter from the writer, Naomi Ragen, which nails the issues we face on Nov 4th. While the economic issues take center stage, the problem of Islamic theology which causes terror will be much more of an issue over the next four years than the economy. If we as a nation believe in freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness we must elect leaders who stand for those values. If we elect Obama, our freedoms and way of life will be destroyed, if not forever, then at least for some considerable time to come. Germany elected Hitler and the economy improved but a much bigger evil was created. I will choose economic difficulty any day over the opening of our borders, to infiltration of our law enforcement and military by an Islamic 5th column, to a fairness doctrine restricting free speech of people who have conservative views, and the selling out of Israel on false peace with a Jewish community both here and in Israel lost for leadership and strength. We Jews have been persecuted for 3000 years, why does every Jewish generation seem to always hope that all of sudden the world has changed its views on Jews?

Keith Davies, Walid Shoebat Foundaton

Sitting here in Jerusalem reading the poll numbers, I have a feeling of déjà vu. There was a time in Israel when the Oslo Accords and the sincerity of Yasser Arafat were, believe it or not, controversial subjects. More than that, anyone who was against Oslo, who believed Arafat was a terrorist and a liar, and that land for peace was a deception that would lead to terror and war, was vilified. What didn’t they call us realists? War-mongers. Partners with Yigal Amir. There was no debate, just hysteria and vilification. I have to say that even my own family felt we should ‘give peace a chance’ and watched the handshake on the White House lawn (which I refused to watch and which made me ill) with hope. I was informed that since I wasn’t going to be serving in the army, I had no right to suggest that signing this peace agreement was a bad thing.

You know what? It intimidated me. I started to think: how could it be that everyone was so happy and enthusiastic, and I was miserable and depressed? How could they see doves and handshakes when all I could see was terrorist bombs and dead bodies?

So I tried to see the world through their glasses. I tried to be hopeful too. And when it came time to vote, I even voted for a Peace Now candidate, not because I thought there would be peace, but because I thought that it was better for the country to at least put into practice it’s wrong ideas, and to experience first hand how badly it was all going to work out. That there was no other way to have unity, because if they didn’t get that chance, they would never shut up, and would always blame the opposition for not giving them a chance. I stopped speaking out. I went along.

What we got, of course, was hell on earth. Thousands were killed, thousands more were injured as Arafat unleashed unbridled terrorist attacks, using the guns our government had given him to kill Israelis, many of them women and children; using the free access into Israel to blow up pizza parlors and discos and bar mitzvah celebrations.

And then came my turn, sitting in the Park Hotel with my family, including my child and political opponent, who was all in favor of Oslo, when the building blew up.

When I came out of that alive with my husband and children, I swore never to be intimidated again. I swore that next time when no-nothings asserted political beliefs that were blatantly wrong, and would lead to disaster, I would oppose them openly, come what may. I would also never again suspend my disbelief that other people knew better, including high level academics, intellectuals, and other elites. Including my closest family members. I would keep my common sense.

The Presidential election of the most liberal and inexperienced politician in America, a man with strong Muslim ties and a strong Muslim background; a man who IS linked to domestic terrorism through Bill Ayers, and to numerous pro-Islamic and anti-American advisors – all of whom side with Israel’s Leftist enemies (including some Israelis) as well as to anti-American, anti-Semites like Reverend Wright; a man whose supporters are among the same people who brought down the American economy with their ‘liberalism’ in money-lending, is just about a fait accompli. I have no idea what has happened to the America I knew. I have no idea what happened to the American Jewish community’s support for Israel, how it has been washed away by deceptive self-interest and propaganda lies. But when I think what is in store for the America which is doing this to herself, and the American Jewish community who thinks by selling out Israel it will somehow achieve “change” that will benefit it, my heart aches.

I know that I am helpless to stop this juggernaut towards disaster. Perhaps it is America’s turn to experience first hand what we in Israel experienced: the consequences of electing a leadership which does not have the best interests of the country in mind; which has an agenda that has nothing to do with those interests. Sometimes people have to make horrible mistakes in order to learn that they are horrible mistakes. In Israel, this included over 25,000 terrorist attacks. Children dying in the streets. Being afraid to walk to the bus stop or even enter a store……

Americans have had a wonderful life in a wonderful country. Everybody in the world wants to live in America. Now, Americans want ‘change.’ They are about to get it.

May G-d watch over them. Maybe this is how G-d intends to get them all to make Aliyah? I wonder how they’ll feel when they are sitting here with the rest of us, Obama in the White House, and Iran with a atom bomb.

  1. had read on many lying Sites that Barrack Obama does not drink alcohol and that is not true.. is Obama rather an alcoholic ?

  2. Naomi Ragen is absolutely right. I hope all the jews who, masochistically, intend to vote for “Long Legged Mac Daddy” will read her letter. Besides,the endorsement by Colin Powell for a man who never stopped insulting him during the last four years, fits the separatist ideology of Michelle Obama. Here we are! Blacks for blacks, plus a too big number of naive, neurotic and manipulated whites, who think that they would be spared by the destruction of their civilization. And, if Long Legged Mac Daddy is not elected, the message his wife, Farrakhan,the neo-black panthers and the paleo-communists who support him are sending to the young and less young black population of America is the following:Cry racist!Go and spread your anger in the streets!Riot, plunder, break shop windows,through molotov bottles, just like the partisan of Raila Odinga(Obama’s uncle and adviser) did, after the latest presidential elections in Kenya. The result: thousands of murders, rapes, arsons based on ethnicity. Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez and Ahmadinejad will dance and sing chorals of joy. The european leftists and anti-americans will share crocodile tears over the “poor USA” and the future end of Israel.
    I just wonder how the non-black fans of Long Legged Mac Daddy (=super pimp) will avoid being attacked. Will they pin black, blue or horrific yellow stars on their chests?

  3. Not left, not right - centered

    ^ ^ That’s one of the most hot-blooded, rambling, incoherent and brainless diatribes I’ve come across here. Not only is it ignorantly stereotypical and racist but it really shows how feeble a mind can operate on low levels of critical thinking and excessive sheltering. Turn off your television and walk outside for fresh air. Geez.

  4. Even though I’m not jewish I say this with alot of respect…I have dozens of close friends that are jewish so I’m not an anti-semite by any stretch of the imagination, and I do have to admit as some of my friends have confessed to me that there’s a victim’s mentality that is pervasive amongst the jewish community. Propping up the the unforgivable slights against jews as a blank license to whatever to whoever is an unstable solution in the long-term and a poor stance in the short-term. As a non-jew I still believe that jews have a right to Israel, but not unilaterally. America is changing demographically, and down the road Israel will have hard time propping itself up with the political backing of the US. I won’t pretend to understand what it is to be jewish, but the truth is there’s a future where Americans will not be so captive to Israeli influence. This is a point in time where Israel can be the master of it’s own fate and influence much of it’s future so long as there is some semblance of justice and fairness for everyone involved (jewish, christian & muslim)…

  5. First off Tomoa, I’m against all foreing aid to Israel and to other countries.

    Secondly, I don’t understand what injustices you are referring to. The Arabs in the territories get free water, and electricity, and I believe other welfare stuff as well.

    Also, did you know that there are Arab members of the Israeli Knesset (parliament). There are also Arab members of their supreme court. These people use the freedoms Israel has given them to openly call for terror attacks against the Jewish state.

    And finally, Miss Israel a while back was an Arab.

  6. ELECTION 2008
    Now terrorists swoon over Biden
    Hamas says VP candidate will help Obama with ‘right policy’ for Middle East

    JERUSALEM – In an exclusive interview tonight, a senior Hamas official heaped praise on Sen. Joe Biden,….

    Thinking about Biden setting ANY foreign policy is frightening.

    quote”When we kicked — along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don’t know — if you don’t, Hezbollah will control it.”

  7. (10/20)”Al-Jazeera for Obama”(accuracyinmedia)- Terrorist Propaganda Network Attacks Palin/ Supporters as Christian White Racists

    Al-Jazeera for Obama
    Colin Powell’s predicted and expected endorsement of Barack Obama was transformed into big news by the pro-Obama media. But Arab propaganda channel Al-Jazeera’s intervention in the U.S. presidential contest is also extremely significant…

  8. Oh my goodness I’m a catholic and unconditionally for pro-Israel and full restoration of Jeruselum. This is God’s will forget all you who are wise in your own wisdom not of God wisdom. Every Muslim is anti-american. Anti-Jew, anti- christian.. I pray for Israel for there is no salvation without her. Did you see all the YOUTH CAMPS for our young men..Chanting we are the ALPHA THE OMEGA..That is God’s alone..I don’t understand the liberal jew or christian..

  9. The more I hear about Obama, the more I am AFRAID!!! He and his friends Ayers, Wright, Fleger, Farrakhan and the like are so SCARY!! Biden tells the truth when he stated that the U.S. will be tested. Obama is weak and cannot even take a stand on which baseball team to support. Obama will surrender our county to terrorists. Obama is an APPEASER and a coward.

  10. i read your post, naomi, and it’s pretty heartbreaking. I don’t know what has happened either. I too am deeply worried about Israel and America both –tho America has orders of magnitude less immediate danger facing her. All i can offer is ‘maybe people will wake up in time’. If not, we really are in for trouble.

  11. According to Israelinsider, Obama just admitted that he did not write “Dreams of my father”! Ghostwriter: the non repentent terrorist Bill Ayers!Bravo to J.Cashill!

    Wake up. Politics is all about pandering. You’re going to act like you didn’t see Sarah Palin supporting not only the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies but also the Boston Red Sox? This is a weak point to rally behind. I just hope you will be able to cope with the fact that in less than two weeks, President-Elect Barack Obama will begin his plan to repair our great country.
    This will be a transcendental time for all the nutjobs to see that their ignorance that will be forced to transform into awareness.

  13. I initially heard several rumors and innuendos regarding Obama and Israel that worried me. Consequently I tried to learn more and came away with convinced that Israel’s interest will be much better served with Obama as the President of the United States. I found a web site that articulate these issues: Please take a look at http://www.israelisforobama.org/

  14. Get out of Palestine Juden!

    You know what President or Presidential candidates dont have American interests at heart?

    Bush/Palin/McCain.

    Now way are we here in this country going to let some far right Christian nut like Palin have any say in government.

    Obama 08!

    Jews want peace? Get out of lands that dont belong to you and stop committing genocide on Palestinians.

  15. How about you get off this earth, you disgusting nazi pig!

    McCain is more American than all you white nationalist scum bags put together!

  16. And one more thing, Mark, you disgusting nazi piece of garbage. You have no business anyone what to do considering your beloved Nazis invaded all of Europe and part of Russia. So shut your stinking trap already.

  17. Mark, there is no such thing as “Palestine”. If you want an Arab state in that area why not be content with Jordan?

  18. Mark obviously doesn’t have the intellectual ability to know what genocide is. There is no genocide going on in Israel and if you think that there is you are very mistaken. Israel is treating the arabs too nicely at this time. These same arabs whom the Israel government has handed land and prisoners have turned around and continued to attack the Israelis. There is no longer any need to make peace with these animals who strive only to kill as many Jews as they can. When all the arabs move out of the Jewish homeland then we can have peace. People like Mark who have mental issues will not stand in our way.

  19. And yes, Mark is a typical piece of Nazi trash…

  20. PS, Rahm Emanuel’s father? Irgun.

  21. Apparently McCain has some nice supporters too:

    Things are a mess in Israel. Constant war and ‘security will never be the answer.’ Diplomacy can be a good thing
