Now this is what a TRUE leader sounds like. h/t Breitbart TV:
This is the FULL speech, and it truly deserves your rapt attention. Turn everything else off and pay attention. More is being said between actual spoken words that our “Dear Leader” will never get. Bibi is laying down the gauntlet for what the policies will be, and most patriotic, liberty-loving Americans will get it. Doubtful that “Teh Won” will.
Can we trade Netanyahu for Obama? No, wait… that would be too mean to the Israelis. We’ll just have to stand as a thousand Breitbarts to fight our fight here at home.
…but does he even realize it? I mean seriously, he came off looking so pompous and arrogant that I don’t even think he knows what happened to him. This was DEFINITELY a segment worthy of O’Reilly’s body language expert, Tonya Reiman. As you watch this whole video (I know it’s long, but it’s so worth it), keep an eye on Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s body language and see if you don’t see the same thing I did. I would say he’s really offended by Gregory’s lack of knowledge on the Palestinian/Israeli situation, but that would be offensive on MY part because Netanyahu is way too smart to even acknowledge this pleeb and his arguments.
Here’s a portion of the transcript that is particularly telling of the mood:
MR. GREGORY: So I’m, I’m not making a judgment, I, I’m simply kind of reading where we are. Let, let me ask you this question, Israel is arguably as isolated as it’s ever been in the midst of Arab spring. Turkey has turned against you, the Arab world has moved away from dictators who supported Israel, had peace treaties with Israel, and is now more negative towards Israel. In this day and age, at this particular moment, despite Israel’s well-known and substantial security concerns, how can you occupy Palestinian territory at this moment?
Everyone is saying that Barack Obama threw Israel under the bus, but they are citing the part of his disastrous Mideast Foreign Policy speech where he says Israel must go back to the pre-1967 borders in order to have peace with Palestine. I contend, however, that it’s the part where he tells Israel she’s on her own! Here’s the portion of the speech I’m referring to, courtesy The Root: (emphasis mine)
“As for security, every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be able to defend itself — by itself — against any threat. Provisions must also be robust enough to prevent a resurgence of terrorism to stop the infiltration of weapons and to provide effective border security. The full and phased withdrawal of Israeli military forces should be coordinated with the assumption of Palestinian security responsibility in a sovereign, nonmilitarized state. The duration of this transition period must be agreed, and the effectiveness of security arrangements must be demonstrated.”
Did you read that? “…by itself?” Israel must be strong enough to DEFEND itself BY ITSELF! In other words, ‘hey, Israel, if you have to defend yourself aganist Iran, Syria, Egypt, or whomever else, you will NOT be getting any help from us!’ That’s exactly what he said, and it’s exactly what he meant. What? We can help the Libyans and Syrians, but we won’t help Israel? Are you kidding me?
Gene Simmons recently appeared on CNBC, talking about Obama’s Mideast Foreign Policy speech; especially as it deals with his take on Israel, and the suggestion they must go back to the pre-1967 borders. Here’s a partial transcript, h/t my buddy Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters:
JANE WELLS, CNBC: What do you think of President Obama’s suggestion that the borders be redrawn pre-67?
GENE SIMMONS, KISS: President Obama, I voted for an idea. What I didn’t realize what I was getting was an idealist. If you’ve never been to the moon, you can’t issue policy about the moon. You have no f—king idea what it’s like on the moon. For a president to be sitting in Washington, D.C., and saying, “Go back to your 67 borders in Israel,” how about you live there and try to defend an indefensible border nine miles wide? On one side you’ve got hundreds of millions of people who hate your guts, on the other side you’ve got the Mediterranean. Unless you control, in Israel, unless you control those Golan Heights, it’s an indefensible position.
