Obama for President of Israel?


The Obama Campaign Woos Pro-Israel Voters


by Joshua Blakeney


In a week when a pro-Israel media venue, the Atlanta Jewish Times, contemplated the pros and cons of a Mossad assassination of the U.S. president, Barack Obama, the Obama election campaign has chosen to reiterate the forty-fourth president’s unambiguous allegiance to Israel in the form of a toe-curling video.

Viewers of this perplexing video would be forgiven for thinking that Obama was reliant on votes from Israeli citizens and was thus including them as potential supporters in his campaign for the upcoming November 2012 presidential election.

Whilst Obama does not rely on votes from Israeli citizens (other than the occasional dual-citizen), he does rely on weighty campaign donations from U.S.-based supporters of Israel as well as endorsements from the Zionist influenced U.S. media.

Richard Cohen in a 2006 Washington Post article reported that Democratic presidential candidates rely on Jewish sources for 60% of donations from private sources. This figure is cited by University of Chicago’s John Mearsheimer and Harvard’s Stephen Walt in their seminal text The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (Mearsheimer and Walt, 2007, pg 163)

A recent Gallup Poll indicated that 4 in 10 of American Jews disapprove of how Obama is doing his job which might further explain why the Obama administration would feel it necessary to disseminate such an ignominious video.

The video offers evidence to support the thesis advanced by many such as James Petras, Jonathan Cook, Stephen Walt, John Mearsheimer, Stephen Sneigoksi, Kevin Barrett and others that the “Zionist tail is wagging the American dog” when it comes to U.S. Middle East policy. As Petras has put it, the American Empire is now a “colonized Empire.”

N.B. – Viewers might consider having a puke-bag ready prior to watching this video:
