Obama's attitude toward Israel demonstrates his belief that the Jews should be held to a higher standard than any other nation -- the standard of unrelenting surrender. Take, by contrast, Obama's attitude toward the Pakistani government. The Pakistani government recently conceded the Swat Valley to the Taliban. The Obama administration opposed Pakistan's concessions.

"I have expressed my concern and confusion about what happened," fumed Ambassador to Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke. "(T)he chief spokesman of the Taliban in the Swat area publicly renounced the part of the deal in which they're supposed to lay down their arms. And it seems to me that that ought to be a wakeup call to everybody in Pakistan that you can't deal with these people by giving away territory as they creep closer and closer to the populated centers of the Punjab and Islamabad. They're less than 100 miles from Islamabad after this deal ... And I am concerned at the growing risk that you'll have more terrorist attacks in Lahore and Islamabad, perhaps in Karachi."

Obama is concerned when a Muslim state populated by radical Muslim sympathizers makes territorial concessions to those radical Muslim sympathizers. He is concerned that those Muslim terrorists will be within 100 miles of a Muslim capital. And he is worried that Muslim terrorist attacks on Muslims will escalate.

Yet Obama advocates for territorial concessions by Jews to radical Muslims. He presses Jews to hand over territory not 100 miles from the capital, but constituting half the capital itself. He knows that each time Israel has made territorial concessions, Muslim terrorists have upped the ante -- most recently in both Lebanon and the Gaza Strip. And he knows that the Palestinian Arabs have never and will never lay down their arms. Yet he threatens Israel with allowing its nuclear annihilation if Israel refuses to authorize euthanasia.

During the election campaign, I wrote that Obama was "the most dangerous candidate for the state of Israel since its creation in 1948." I wrote, "Any American Jew who votes for Obama ought to be ashamed of him or herself." My words were not strong enough. Any Jew who continues to support Obama's foreign policy should turn in his badge as a Jew -- that means you, Rahm Emanuel. And all Americans who support Israel must stand up against a president who values the genocidal murderers in Muslim lands over our democratic allies in the Jewish State.
