Opinion – Democrats have been methodically working against the Jewish people and Israel since the presidency of Barack Obama realigned the party’s interest with that of the rising Islamic Caliphate.
In August 2014, Michael Ledeen, a former consultant to the National Security Council and U.S. Defense Department, penned a column at PJ Media stating Obama opened a back-channel to Iran during the 2008 presidential campaign. Ledeen said the back channel went through retired Ambassador William G. Miller, who also led the 1979 negotiating mission during the Iran hostage crisis. Ladeen wrote that Miller confirmed his back-channel involvement to him.
Ledeen wrote: (emphasis added by this reporter)
The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
Obama’s presidency culminated with the Iran nuclear deal. A giveaway of massive proportions accompanied by the promise of a blind eye towards the continued development of Iran’s nuclear program.
The one-sided deal was blessed by our Manchurian president despite years of ritualistic rally-cries of “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” — and the burning in effigy of the leaders of Israel, America, and Saudi Arabia.
According to the Washington Free Beacon Obama moved the deal with Iran along even as Iran was ferrying Islamic fighters into Syria, a nation that borders Israel.
Finally in the waning days of his presidency, while he was a lame duck and the Jewish vote no longer mattered to him, Obama instructed his UN ambassador to abstain on a Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem.
That opened the door for the BDS movement (Boycott, Divestiture, Sanctions) to isolate Israel economically in a move that recalled the Democrats’ assault on white South Afrikaners decades ago.
Only months into President Trump’s first year in office Adam Kredo reported that:
“The Obama administration likely hid information about Iran illicitly ferrying militants into Syria on commercial aircraft in order to promote the landmark nuclear deal and foster multi-billion dollar business deals with Tehran’s state-controlled airline sector.”
“Photographs provided to Congress show Iran using Iran Air to ferry these soldiers between 2016 and 2017, in part when the Obama administration removed sanctions on Iran Air and promoted multi-billion dollars sales between the carrier and aircraft manufacturer Boeing, which is seeking to provide Iran Air with a fleet of new planes that many suspect will be used to carry terrorist fighters and weapons into regional hotspots.”
Consider also the data theft allegations against the Pakistani-born Awan brothers who had been provided access to highly classified information by at least thirty Democratic congressmen at the time that Obama was still president.
According to Luke Rosiak writing for the Daily Caller more than five months after the data breach had been discovered:
Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder if the suspects are blackmailing representatives based on the contents of their emails and files, to which they had full access.
“I don’t know what they have, but they have something on someone. It’s been months at this point” with no arrests, said Pat Sowers, who has managed IT for several House offices for 12 years. “Something is rotten in Denmark.”
A manager at a tech-services company that works with Democratic House offices said he approached congressional offices, offering their services at one-fourth the price of Awan and his Pakistani brothers, but the members declined. At the time, he couldn’t understand why his offers were rejected but now he suspects the Awans exerted some type of leverage over members.
Then, just weeks ago Democrat leadership, who have welcomed unabashed Islamic radicals into their caucus, found it impossible to pass a resolution that specifically condemned anti-Semitism following tweet’s by Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
In the interim, it has been discovered that the radical Islamic Minnesota congresswoman, who was the chief reason for leadership’s resolution in the first place, has been holding secret fundraisers with with groups that have been tied to funding Islamic terror.
We can also report that most, if not all, prominent 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are skipping out on AIPAC, America’s most important pro-Israel lobby.
Democrats, who are so expert at messaging, appear to have nothing but lip-service to explain this decision. Considering the importance that the Jewish donor base once played for Democrats seeking high office the snub of AIPAC cannot be dismissed easily.
In light of all of this you’d think that any Democrat who continues to believe in the right of Israel’s existence would go out of their way to attend AIPAC if only to continue the charade that Democrats still embrace Jews under their big tent.
Rush Limbaugh noted the significance of the Democrats’ boycott:
“This is much bigger than anybody is making this out to be. This is the severing, by all of the presidential candidates on the Democrat side, their ties to traditional Jewish allies in the Democrat Party. I mean, this is a huge thing. And the irony that just days after they went so, so far, they tried so hard to convince everybody that even though Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib or whatever in their party, no, we’re not anti-Semites, don’t think that at all, we love Israel and we love the Jewish people. But then when it comes time to go to AIPAC, (raspberry) you, Israel, we don’t want any part.”
‘… There are a whole lot of Islamic nations in the Middle East who want there to be no Israel, and they want to accomplish this by forcing all citizens of Israel to march into the Mediterranean Sea and drown. I guess if you oppose being murdered, it might make you an Islamophobe to these people. But this is striking. Trump is right again. He’s just calling it out. The Democrat Party is becoming anti-Jewish.”
Then Rush turned to history to remind us that what we are witnessing isn’t new:
“The Democrat Party is trying to turn Israel into South Africa and the apartheid movement, and they’re using the same exact language that they used against South Africa.”
Now consider that the more radical Democrats’ anti-American rhetoric labeling their opponents white supremacists makes us their likely next targets.
