Israel vs Arabs, No Quick Fix, So Will Obama Take a Break?

For whatever reason, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama, kept giving the impression that he could solve the "Middle East problem" in a jiffy, and as we all know, that's a whopper of a lie.  Nu, so when is he going to take a sabbatical from the issue and leave us alone?  If he runs for a second term, as Tzachi Hanegbi assumes, Obama will get too busy.  He'll also want to show success, and he won't succeed here, because the situation is nothing like he imagines.

Obama is, like U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a very rigid "orthodox" Democrat, firm believers in American Liberal (with a capital "L") ideology.  I stress that capital "L," because Liberals aren't liberal* at all.  They are very rigid and conservative**, yes, with a "small c."

Actually, the Liberals are frequently more close-minded, rigid than Conservatives, because for many Liberals their ideology has replaced religion.  It's their god and they fear opening themselves up to anything that may put cracks in their theories.

Conservatives who believe in other religions have certain "checks and balances" which sometimes challenge their political beliefs.  That's why Israel has more sincere support from the religious Christians than from the non-believers of either ideology.

Unfortunately, the cat's out of the bag, and it won't be enough that Obama fills his time and energies on reelection.  The rest of the world is busy planning and recognizing a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic state.  And it certainly hasn't been good for us that Israeli politics has moved far to the Left.  Today's "center" is what radical Left was twenty or thirty years ago.

We have a lot of work to do to save the State of Israel, G-d willing.

That's a very good point about the Liberals and the Conservatives. Very few people realize that. We could find the irony in the situation amusing, if it weren't for the fact that the Liberals put the entire world in danger with their refusal to call a fact, a fact.

There's nothing more dangerous than the Liberals who worship their ideology as truth, very rigidly.

Liberals are in transition from ideology to policy and oppresion.

I always remember that Socialism was a transition policy before a complete switch to Communism and all of its oppression and cruel treatment of people.

I'll never forget what I overheard in high school:
"All the non-conformists have green bookbags."

If you ever want to see a Liberal squirm, ask this question: "Do you believe that there are no absolutes?" When the answer is something akin to: "Absolutely sure." Point out the contradiction and soon you'll find yourself alone because the Liberal will have crossed state lines and left for the State of Denial.
