When Israel’s border was stormed on three sides by activists “celebrating” Nabka, which is a day of mourning bemoaning the creation of the Jewish State in 1948, administration Press Secretary Jay Carney called for “restraint on all sides.” To this day, the president has yet to condemn the Muslim Brotherhood, even as his administration has been forced to walk back a ludicrous statement by Intel Chief James Clapper regarding its “largely secular” nature, and the fact that it has ”no overarching agenda, particularly in pursuit of violence.” It’s also had to walk back a howler by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who referred to Syria’s bloodthirsty thug leader, Bashar Assad, as a “reformer.”
Jewish Americans might also consider perhaps the Mother of All Inconvenient Truths regarding the possible nature of the so-called “Arab Spring” — itself a laughable slogan that has become an integral part of the left’s determination to shape the narrative about the recent upheavals in the Middle East, irrespective of the events on the ground. An audio message published on al-Qaeda website Al-Sahab, by Ayman al-Zawahiri, long thought of as the terrorist organization’s number two man, lauded the uprisings in the Middle East. In the message, reportedly made ”prior to the martyrdom of Sheikh Osama bin Laden,” al-Zawahiri also called for the implementation of Sharia Law in Egypt.
Those would be the very same uprisings lauded by the Obama administration and their progressive soul-mates. Only those Jews blinded by leftist ideology would fail to notice what this means: the interests of the Obama administration and those of al-Qaeda are aligned in some respects.
And Debbie Wasserman-Schultz wants as few Jews as possible to be aware of any of the above. Nothing could be less surprising, except perhaps that which might occur if Debbie and the Dems sense the tide is turning against them. Democrats, whose mantra has always been, “when in doubt, demagogue,’ will not deviate from that game plan, even if demagoguery devolves into outright lying, just as it has regarding the Medicare debate.
Meanwhile, the facts on the ground are indisputable: Hamas on one side of Israel, Iran-backed Hezbollah on the other; another “peace” flotilla on its way in June, the threat of a unilaterally created Palestinian state in September, a now wide-open border from Egypt into Gaz, al-Qaeda leadership applauding the Arab Spring, and an Obama administration calling for restraint “on all sides.” If I were Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, I’d want people like me and others keeping their mouths shut too.
