Call me narrowly partisan, call me a flaming fanatic–actually, I am neither–but given what I know, there is simply no way that I can vote for any American candidate who supports President Obama’s position on Israel or on the Islamic world. I am thinking of Obama’s low bow to King Abdullah, his maiden-voyage speech in Cairo, his 2010 public shaming of the Israeli delegation at the White House, going so far as having refused to feed them or to pose with them for photos—but of course, there is more, so much more. Doing absolutely nothing to stop Iran or to help Iranian dissidents is among the next 50 important issues that our president has either not grasped or has, indeed, handled as if he truly is either an empty suit or a Muslim Manchurian candidate. Or both.

I am not talking about his race. I am talking about his administration’s policies.

Obama’s administration has also invited “J” Street, a Soros-funded anti-Israel lobby, into its inner circle as a “pro-Israel” group; suggested that Israel has been the cause of American military deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq; demanded that Israel stop building on sovereign Israeli soil; and has refused to say that Israel is, indeed, a Jewish state.

America’s foreign policy in terms of both Israel and the Muslim world is a matter of the most profound national and international security, and the fact that I may not agree with conservatives or Republicans on certain issues is of lesser importance at this moment in history. All our precious and hard-won universal human rights, including women’s rights, will remain tattered pieces of paper if the pro-Islamist and anti-Israel agenda triumphs. Sadly, under Obama’s reign, this is well underway.

Further: Scapegoating Israel for the crimes of Muslim regimes will not help Muslim citizens who yearn to live free of terrorism and barbaric tyranny nor will it help Muslim and ex-Muslim dissidents or infidels who are being savagely persecuted, exiled, murdered, blown up by Islamists in Muslim and Hindu countries. Islamic religious apartheid is real and growing. Israel is not an apartheid country—but both Islamic gender and religious apartheid are real apartheid practices.

President Obama has yet to suggest that he realizes this.
