This Sunday I’ll be attending the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) dinner in Dallas. I’ve always sought to be a strong supporter and defender of the State of Israel and its right of existence. Funny — apparently such a policy position angers many on the progressive socialist left — then again, that’s where you find the most vehement anti-Semitism.
As Written By Allen B. West:
Well, the cat is out of the bag regarding fully embracing an anti-Israel position when it comes to President Barack Obama.
As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “President Barack Obama has announced in a rare statement that he will not follow newly passed measures aimed at boosting the Israeli economy and strengthening ties between the United States and the Jewish state, according to a statement issued by the president.
Obama stated that while he would sign the new trade resolution [a comprehensive act that covering all nations], portions of which focus on combatting economic boycotts of Israel, he would not enforce certain pro-Israel provisions that order the United States to stop partnering with countries that support the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or BDS, which aims to isolate Israel.
The president’s rejection of these provisions comes two weeks after the White House issued a separate statement expressing support for every provision of the trade bill except for those focusing on strengthening the U.S.-Israel relationship.
The Obama administration has repeatedly opposed efforts to fight the BDS movement over the past several months, with several senior officials expressing support for European efforts to explicitly label Jewish-made products produced in disputed areas of Israel.
Obama claimed in the statement that his administration does not back the BDS movement. However, he will not uphold parts of the new trade legislation that seek to combat the BDS-backed labeling of Jewish goods, which the Israeli government has described as anti-Semitic.”
So it appears President Obama is speaking out of both sides of his mouth, which reminds me of the Bible verse James 1:8 (NIV), “Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.”
