Stand With Israel
(--oh, he doesn't use that name anymore? What is his legal name, anyway? I guess I'll just change my name to Bernadette Fricke--and don't ask me for my documents proving my name change, please. We should all, just like Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Soebarkah Obama get to use whatever name we fancy. Plus if I want to use some dead guy's SSN from Connecticut, a state I've never set foot in, that should be OK, too. --but I digress--)
the Golan Heights, land captured from Syria in the 1967 Six-Day War, is important to Israel's security. Just look at a map. For a discussion about why surrender of the Golan would be a "reckless act" for Israel, see "Defensible Borders on the Golan Heights," by Maj.-Gen. (res.) Giora Eiland.
I'm very glad to hear there are some principled people in Washington who are unwilling to just sit by while Barack Hussein Obama sells one of our oldest allies down the river. On Friday, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) announced that he would introduce a congressional resolution disapproving of Obama's stance on Israel's border lines, saying that his position "threatens Israel's security."
Says Hatch, "Rather than stand by Israel against consistent unprovoked aggression by longtime supporters of terrorism, President Obama is rewarding those who threaten Israel's very right to exist. This is not only ridiculous, but dangerous.
"There is strong disapproval in Congress for the President's new posture towards Israel, and I will introduce a resolution next week affirming Israel's right to maintain its territorial integrity."
This is from an article at American Thinker by Joshua Lipana, "Why Israel cannot trade land for peace": "Israel [unlike the Islamists in Palestine]...respects its citizens' individual rights. It is by this virtue that their sovereignty is legitimate. It is also the reason why Israel is supported by liberty loving people all over the world."
And, for a little comedy relief--with a point--go to Andrew Breitbart's Big Peace and read: "Netanyahu Urges U.S. Return to 1845 Borders."
Here are the shifting sands of Obama's position on Israel. h/t UK Mail online.
