Israel and the Decline of American Support Under Obama

White Flag1It needs to be understood that the United States has no intention, whatsoever, of fighting political Islam (or "radical Islam" or "Islamism") and will likely not do so anytime in the near future.
On the contrary, the foremost Islamist force in the world is the country of Iran and the United States has switched sides from opposing Iranian Islamist ideology, and expansionism, to supporting it as an alternative to Pax Americana.  This means that the United States, particularly under the current administration, is morphing into an enemy of the Jewish State of Israel and, thus, into an enemy of the Jewish people.
Current polling demonstrates American hostility toward Israel is growing, particularly among Democrats and "progressives."  In fact, recent polling for the Center for Middle East Policy at Brookings demonstrates that a full 49 percent of Democrats believe that Israel has too much influence over American politics.
Unless things change significantly with the new American administration in 2016 - which is unlikely short of a Cruz or Rubio presidential win - we are going to see more of the same hostility toward Israel that Barack Obama massaged and smoothed over for the next Democratic presidency.
Do not be swayed by sweet words from Hillary Clinton.  As an agent of Obama, she defended Hamas against Israeli-Jewish retaliation for the years of bombings against S'derot and Ashkelon.  She enforced the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, despite the fact that they prevented Christian Copts from voting at the point of a rifle.  And she attacked Israel merely for building housing for Jews within the Jewish homeland.
Obama, of course, is not the first American president to be hostile toward either the Jewish people or the Jewish State, but he is the first to combine that hostility with open support for political Islam, an anti-Semitic genocidal political movement.
Everything is in flux at the moment and Angela Merkel, along with the idiots in Sweden and the EU, have turned Europe into a tinderbox.
Given the millions of Arab-Muslims flowing from the Middle East and North Africa into Europe, what we will see is a heavy increase in violent Jihadi activity throughout the continent and the UK - more bombings, stabbings, and murderous rage against the "infidel" - along with a slow, steady decline of the rights of women, Gay people, and the steady decline of what little Jewish population is left.
I would honestly encourage all European Jews, if they can, to move to friendlier locales, preferably in Israel, but for the moment North America and Australia are relatively safe havens, despite San Bernardino.
American "progressives" and Democrats, however, are turning against the Jewish people which accounts for the latest poll revealing that fully 30 percent of Americans support sanctions against Israel and, therefore, support the hostile Arab majority in the Middle East against the besieged Jewish minority in that part of the world.
Just as Obama sent US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, to Israel in order to defend Hamas from Israeli retaliation during Operation Cast Lead, so Obama sends current Secretary of State, John Kerry, to harangue Israel about Jews who want to live in Judea and Samaria, the homeland of the Jewish people.
The Obama administration, thus, has learned nothing.
I assumed that a former president of the Harvard Law Review might be open to changing political views given additional information and alternating circumstances over time, but I was wrong.
It was clear as early as 2009 that the Obama administration was, intentionally or not, hell-bent on wrecking whatever potential may have been left in the Oslo "peace process."  By demanding that Jews be allowed to live in certain places, but not others, it forced Palestinian-Arab dictator, Mahmoud Abbas, to agree because he cannot, for his life, be seen as softer on Jews than the American president.  In fact, I wrote about this in a piece published in December of that year entitled, The End of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Process.
Thus Obama threw a monkey-wrench into Oslo and then, as is Obama's tendency, blamed Israel for his own mistakes.
