No More “Blank Cheques” For Israel

At least that’s what former U.S. Ambassasor to Israel Martin Indyk says about the upcoming Obama administration.

JERUSALEM (AFP) – Israel can no longer expect “blank cheques” from Washington once president-elect Barack Obama’s administration takes over in January, a former US ambassador to the Jewish state said on Sunday.

“The era of the blank cheque is over,” said Martin Indyk, director of the Centre for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institute who is considered close to incoming secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

“The Obama administration intends to be engaged, using diplomacy to try to bring about a safer and more peaceful place, that is different from the seven years of the (George W.) Bush administration,” he said on public radio.

“President Obama surely will want to work with Israel on this (Middle East) agenda. But there are obligations on both sides (Israel and the Arabs). Both sides will have to respect these obligations,” Indyk said.

What blank checks is Indyk talking about? Is he referring to the attacks on Sderot? Or how those kidnapped soldiers who are now either dead, or still missing, courtesy of Hezbollah? What about those recent tractor jihad attacks?

If anything, the fact that most Jews voted for Obama despite his many associations with domestic and Islamic terrorists should prove that most Jews either don’t give a rat’s posterior about Israel, or couldn’t care less about their survival as a group.

In any case, Pat Buchanan will have to find another bogeyman to blame for all the problems in the Middle East, since this election has shown that Jews are certainly NOT Israel firsters.

  1. “We’re Germans first.” (ca. 1931)
    “We’re Americans first.” (2008)

    Fools or knaves, their end will be the same. This time it’s Obama, not Baal. Next time–well, I doubt there will be occasion for a next time.

    I heard recently, perhaps on the History chnnel, that most humans may literally be incapable of learning from history.

  2. How many “associations” are we going to ignore and simply just let a CHICAGO THUG and Michelle Angela Davis Obama waltz in and DISGRACE THE WHITE HOUSE?

    We have one last chance to contact the Electoral College to stop the constitutional crises that will result if Barack Obama gets sworn in without meeting the presidential requirement of being a natural born US citizen.

  3. Here’s a little gem in today’s news that Obama plans to use his middle name, beginning on inuaguration day and on after as one way of helping to make sure Muslim nations like us:

  4. Mashaie: Zionism’s annihilation should turn into a global cause

    Mena, Saudi Arabia, Dec 9, IRNA

    Iran-Sudan-Mashaie
    Iran’s Vice-President Rahim Mashaie said here Tuesday that Zionism’s annihilation should turn into a global cause and demand.

    Mashaie, who is here to perform annual Hajj pilgrimage, told Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir that “corrupt and criminal” Zionist regime is not only harmful and a threat for the Arab and Muslim world but also for whole the world mankind. “So, its removal should turn into a global cause and demand.”
    Al-Bashir for his part said that global conditions necessitate tighter cooperation between Iran and Sudan.

    Based on the incoming reports, Mashaie also met and conferred with the Arab League Chief Amr Moussa on the sidelines of the Hajj visit on Tuesday.

    THE QUESTION THAT MOST JEWS VOTED FOR OBAMA IS CERTAINLY ILLOGICAL SINCE IT WAS THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION UNDER THE TUTELAGE OF “GENIUS” KARL ROVE WHO CAME UP WITH THE “CLINTONIAN” “TRIANGULATION” STRATEGY OF ATTRACTING PIECES OF THE DEMOCRATIC LEFT-WING COALITION TO VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS .

    THAT IS WHY BUSH GAVE THE U.S. MILITARY OVER TO BENEFIT ISRAEL’S STRATEGIC CONDITION WITH THE WAR IN IRAQ AND THE NOW FORGOTTEN “WAR OF CIVILIZATIONS”.

    POOR KARL IT DID NOT WORK , BIG BUCK LIBERAL JEWS STILL GAVE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS TO MOVEON.ORG AND THE ELECTION OF A COMMUNIST COMMUNITY ORGANIZER TO THE PRESIDENCY OF THE UNITED STATES .

    IN THE END JEWS HAVE TO MAKE A CHOICE , ARE THEY FOR ISRAEL EXISTING AND EXPANDING (ZIONIST CREED) , OR ARE THEY STILL ENAMOURED TO THAT 19 CENTURY FAILED , ANTI-CHRISTIAN DOGMA OF MARXISM .

    WHICH OF THE TWO REALLY TUGS AT YOUR HEARTS MY HEBREW FRIENDS ?????????

  7. Not all Jews are Marxists. If you look, you’ll find some right wing ones.
