Democrats Turn Their Backs on Israel

The Democratic Party platform makes official what Obama critics have known for some time, that the Left in this country no longer supports our ally Israel.

From the beginning of the first Obama campaign for the presidency, it’s been obvious from Obama’s many statements and affiliations that he much prefers Muslims to Jews.

Now the Democrats have removed a section of the 2008 platform that supported Israel over Hamas from the 2012 platform published online.

Specifically, the points removed include isolating Hamas, encouraging Palestinian refugees to settle outside Israel, recognition that returning to the 1949 borders was unrealistic,  and acknowledgement that Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel.

Obama said back in March that the U.S. has “got Israel’s back.” But unless he meant to add “in the cross hairs,” there’s good reason to doubt his sincerity.

The Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot on Monday published a report claiming a message sent by the Obama Administration to the Iranian leadership assured Iran that the U.S. would not back Israel if that country decides to take unilateral action against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Further, the message asked Iran not to attack any U.S. targets in retaliation if Israel does attack, according to the paper.

In addition, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey recently said he doesn’t “want to be complicit” if Israel decides to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.

It’s no secret that Obama has been remaking the Middle East in his own image through support of the Muslim Brotherhood. Undermining Israel is part of that same plan.

What’s amazing is that American Jews still support Obama and the Democratic Party. Obama once said the Muslim call to prayers was “the sweetest sound on Earth.” Jewish voters might want to ask themselves how they would feel about it if that became a sound heard throughout Israel.
