How much does Barack Obama hate Israel and want to throw her under the bus? Here’s how much; the Obama administration not only excluded Israel from a new counterterrorism forum in Spain, it didn’t even mention Israel in its remarks. If there were ever a country that has dealt with murderous terrorist attacks over and over again, that country would be Israel.
Here’s what Maria Otero, the State Department’s Under Secretary for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights, said:
Last September at the official launch of the Global Counterterrorism Forum, I had the privilege to introduce the premiere of a film ‘Hear their Voices’, which tells the stories of eleven survivors of terrorist attacks from Pakistan, Jordan, Northern Ireland, Uganda, Turkey, Indonesia, India, Spain, Columbia, and the United States. The film, which was produced by the Global Survivors Network, is a powerful plea for audiences around the world, especially those sympathetic to the grievances expressed by extremists, to recognize the human cost of terrorism and I am delighted that our Spanish hosts are planning on showing this film here later this afternoon.
When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced the coalition’s formation in June, she didn’t include Israel on her list of countries that suffer from terror attacks. In the controversy that followed, the supposition was that Obama and his minions caved into pressure from Turkey, whose leadership has become Islamist, and other Arab states, which hate Israel.
Defenders of Israel were furious, even those who were Democrats.
Have we ever had an administration this openly disdainful of Israel?
I don't believe so.
