Heads up, Atlas readers. I will be writing a regular column for WND. Check out my first in my weekly column for WND:
Obama gaslights the Jews by Pamela Geller, WND
Barack Obama came to American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC, on Sunday and declared that the U.S.-Israel relationship was ironclad. I was there and heard him say it, but it did not reassure me. I am dubious about Obama's promise. After all, he caused fright and worry amongst freedom-loving peoples when he endorsed the 1967 Auschwitz borders for Israel, and he did not dispel that concern at AIPAC.
Obama's idea of ironclad is sketchy at best. In 2008, he vowed at the AIPAC conference that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of the state of Israel if he was elected. He walked back on that promise the next day. In 2009 at Cairo University (with the Muslim Brotherhood in attendance at his invitation), he called on Israel to stop all the settlement activity, and created a crisis in U.S.-Israel relations when Israel approved 1,600 houses in Jerusalem.
Obama was at the 2007 AIPAC conference also. Having researched and documented his background and history of Jew-hating friends and alliances, I was embarrassed by the panting and fawning over him, particularly after he had just said, "Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people." Obama's longtime anti-Israel allegiances and radical connections were deeply disturbing and meticulously documented in my book, "The Post American Presidency.
Nonetheless, when Obama was introduced Sunday, he was given a standing ovation. One has to wonder: If Hitler came to AIPAC before the world became aware of the Holocaust, would he, too, have received a standing ovation out of respect for a head of state? No, I am not equating Obama to Hitler. What I am saying is that not every head of state is worthy of respect just because he is a head of state. And while many did not stand up, the fact is that many did because they wanted to be reassured. Could we come any cheaper?
Obama fell off the teleprompter when he was describing Iran as wanting to wipe Israel "off the face of the map." If Sarah Palin had said that they wanted to wipe Israel "off the face of the map," "face of the map" would be the new bumper sticker and the crawl at CNN all through the news cycle.
