Officials in Jerusalem upset that Western powers fail to condemn inflammatory comments by Iran's supreme leader. (Jerusalem Post)United States President Barack Hussein Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry spend more time trying to tie Israel's hands than stopping Iran from completing their nuclear weapons development. And they keep telling the world not to listen to Israel. Now, in all honesty, if you were to check out the credentials of Obama versus Israel's Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in terms of knowledge of history, political science etc. Who would win? Netanyahu has been a history buff, an expert specializing in terrorism for decades, long before Obama could read a sentence in any language. Whose judgement should be trusted more?
And the United States at the height of its hypocrisy still imprisons Jay Jonathan Pollard for the crime of giving information to an ally.
Pollard enters 29th year in US prisonPollard has long since paid for his crime. Criminals who spied for American enemies have served much less and long been released. Nothing in Pollard's crime is worse than theirs. There can be only one reason for his unprecedented sentence, and it's the same reason why Obama keeps telling the world not to listen to Israel and the United States keeps insisting that Judea and Samaria must be judenrein... antisemitism.
Jonathan Pollard was arrested 28 years ago on Nov. 21, 1985 • Pollard's wife appeals to U.S. President Barack Obama to free her husband out of humanitarian considerations • Natan Sharansky: It is our collective failure that Pollard is still in jail. (Israel Hayom)
Our Israeli politicians, media and academics must stop this dangerous worship and respect of the United States. They aren't our friends; they aren't true allies. The proof is in the continued imprisonment of Jonathan Pollard. He's the symbol of what America really thinks and feels about Jews and Israel.
