Does the Obama Admin Stand with Israel or the Terrorists?

The Obama Administration’s air embargo of Israel has ended.

The two-day flight ban played right into the hands of Hamas and had Republicans wondering if the administration had launched an economic boycott of Israel.

Sen. Ted Cruz, the Republican from Texas, lashed out at the administration’s $47 million aid package to Gaza and the FAA’s decision to shut down air travel to Israel.

“When Secretary Kerry arrived in Cairo this week his first act was to announce $47 million in additional aid to Gaza, which is in effect $47 million for Hamas,” Cruz said. “In short order, this travel ban was announced by the FAA. Aiding Hamas while simultaneously isolating Israel does two things. One, it helps our enemy. Two, it hurts our ally.”

The administration’s decision was, quite frankly, suspicious. There have been no such flight bans over other war-torn nations. So why Israel?

“The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel, in order to try to force our ally to comply with his foreign-policy demands,” Cruz said.

Last night – President Obama seemed to downplay events in the Middle East. He told a gathering at a posh Los Angeles fundraiser that Americas were more concerned about the conflict in Washington, D.C. than they were about the conflict in the Middle East.

“Obviously, people are concerned about some of the turmoil that’s taking place around the world,” the president told his Hollywood friends. “And they look at the Middle East and they see a transition from an old order to a new order, and they’re not sure how that’s going to happen, and the terrible violence that occurs as a result.”

That statement exudes arrogance. Does the president truly believe that Republican opposition to his radical policies is more egregious than the war drums beating in the Middle East?

President Obama called the crisis a transition — “from an old order to a new order.”

What’s happening, Mr. President, is the systematic extermination of Christians and Jews – in Iraq and Israel. And quite frankly – many Americans are not quite sure whose side his administration is on.

Since our president seems to be allowing moral equivalency to cloud his judgement, let me lay out the two choices the Obama Administration -they can either support Israel or they can support the terrorist thugs who want to wipe them off the face of the Earth.

This commentator stands with Israel.
