Where is our Commander-in-Chief?

July 24, 2014

While the Middle East burns and a full-blown crisis is unfolding on our own southern border, President Obama, the Campaigner-In-Chief will soon become the Vacationer-In-Chief

A Commander-In-Chief is nowhere to be found. That's why we, America's patriots and pro-Israel citizens, must take immediate action.

I was shocked to see the photos of thousands of people outside the Israeli Embassy in Chicago this weekend protesting Israel's “Operation Protective Edge," with the IDF's goal of protecting civilians and obtaining “a sustainable quiet" for both Israel and the residents of Gaza.  

What would these misguided Chicagoans have the Israeli leadership do — continue to allow Hamas to launch missiles into their neighborhoods, putting 80 percent of the Israeli population at risk of annihilation?

The American protestors certainly do not correctly assess the situation in Israel, nor do they realize the pivotal role the feckless foreign policy of President Obama has played in creating Middle East instability.

They are being duped by Hamas into overlooking the fact that they are intentionally placing civilians in areas being targeted by the Israelis for the sole purpose of gaining public sympathy through media coverage of the civilian casualties.

Thousands of rockets have been launched by Hamas at Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel's actions when he concisely told the moderators at CBS News' Face the Nation program…

 “Any country would act to defend itself against this. We are doing exactly what any country would do, you would do, if you were targeted from across the border. You would try to pinpoint the rocketeers, and that's what we're doing."

In regard to Palestinian civilian casualties… 

“Their rocketeers and their command posts are embedded in homes, hospitals, next to kindergartens, mosques, and so we're trying to operate to target them surgically, but the difference between us is that we're using missile defense to protect our civilians and they're using their civilians to protect their missiles. So naturally they're responsible for all the civilian deaths that occur accidentally. We're sorry for any accidental civilian death, but it's Hamas that bears complete responsibility for such civilian casualties." (italics added)

 The Campaigner-In-Chief is now pivoting to become the Vacationer-In-Chief. Where is President Obama while the Middle East burns? The Obama motorcade is tying up traffic on the west coast while the President jumps from one major, high dollar fundraising event to another. Then, he will reportedly descend on Martha's Vineyard for a 16-day vacation. 

Meanwhile, his foreign policies have created worldwide instability, especially in the Middle East. That's why we are sending a series of powerful messages to Congress that declare… 

The Obama administration has erroneously chosen to continue funding the P.A., which is against American policy and the counsel of Members of Congress, and totally disregards vulnerability of the Israeli government.

We are aiding and abetting enemies of our nation and those of Israel as we continue to fund the newly formed “unity" government between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas, a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization whose charter calls for the annihilation of Israel.

As citizens of the United States, we must go on record as opposing any further funding of the Palestinian Authority, which breaks both U.S. policy and the rule of law. We are calling on Congress to immediately defund the Palestinians. No more aid from taxpayers' money! 
Hamas has vowed to fly their flag over Israel. We want to see congressional movement on this BEFORE they leave for their legislative recess.
This is an urgent matter that requires your immediate attention. Please take action to call on Congress to immediately cease funding of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas.
Thank you for joining us in calling for the defunding of the enemies of Israel!
God bless you.
