American Jews play Charlie Brown...AGAIN

FAL­STAFF: My King, my Jove, I speak to thee, my heart!

KING: I know thee not, old man. Fall to thy prayers.

Henry IV Part 2 Act 5 Scene 5

One of the most frus­trat­ing things I run into reg­u­larly are peo­ple in com­plete denial. I see it in the church often, folks who go to Mass who are devoted to prayer who absolutely insist that the party of Abor­tion, Gay Mar­riage and the Oba­macare man­dates against the Church are not against Catholics because JFK was pres­i­dent and they sim­ply can’t believe the party of Kennedy could pos­si­bly be against the church.

In the Jew­ish com­mu­nity I see the same. They look at the pres­i­dent Obama and his team and because of their his­toric con­nec­tions to the Demo­c­rat party they can’t bring them­selves to believe that the words he has said about Israel could be false and his sup­port of the Jew­ish state could be hol­low no mat­ter what his record was.

Which Brings us to Chuck Hagel

Hagel nom­i­na­tion for defense was still just a rumor Glenn Reynolds linked: to this piece by Jen Rubin at the Wash­ing­ton post that said

Pres­i­dent Obama believes in tough sanc­tions against Iran; Hagel does not. The pres­i­dent insists that he wants good rela­tions with Israel (and thereby can influ­ence its decision-​making with regard to Iran); Hagel has dis­played a poi­so­nous ani­mos­ity toward the Jew­ish state. Hagel has advo­cated direct nego­ti­a­tions with Hamas; Obama has never gone this far. The dif­fi­culty in artic­u­lat­ing to foes and friends our posi­tions on an array of issues is greatly mag­ni­fied when a crit­i­cal cab­i­net offi­cials has a long track record of dis­agree­ment with the pres­i­dent, or at least what the pres­i­dent says is his cur­rent policy.

Well it appears the Chuck “Let the Jews pay for it” Hagel nom­i­na­tion is no longer theoretical.

Now if a GOP pres­i­dent nom­i­nated Hagel for this post Jew­ish Democ­rats would not hes­i­tate to go after the pick as a slap in the face to Israel, with Obama mak­ing the same pick the reac­tions on the left should be…interesting.

I would cry for the Amer­i­can Jew­ish com­mu­nity but they will­ingly voted for Obama and thus are get­ting the gov­ern­ment they deserve. I’ll give the last word via insty this to Pow­er­line:

It was to be expected that, in a sec­ond term, Obama would show more clearly his true col­ors. In fact, he promised the Rus­sians to do so.

And there is some­thing to be said for the kind of clar­ity Hegal’s selec­tion will bring.

I’d say Amer­i­can Jews were play­ing Fal­staff but in fair­ness Obama isn’t turn­ing from his for­mer self, he’s always been this way.

Update: It’s now offi­cial and I cleaned up the open­ing sen­tence that got away from me.

Update 2 Ed Koch says some­thing inter­est­ing:

Koch explained to The Alge­meiner why he decided to back the President’s re-​election even though he says he sus­pected that Obama would back­track on his pro-​Israel over­tures. “I did what I thought was war­ranted and intel­li­gent,” he said, “He was going to win! There was no ques­tion about it. I thought it would be help­ful to have a Jew­ish voice there, being able to communicate.”

So Ed Koch sus­pect­ing Obama’s promises to Jews were BS decided to sup­port him because he thought his vic­tory was inevitable? It’s a good thing Eng­land didn’t think that way in 1941 or there would have been no liv­ing Euro­pean Jews to lib­er­ate or that Lin­coln didn’t think that way in 1862 or there would be a North­ern & South­ern pres­i­dent right now.

Even more inter­est­ing is this:

Does any­body believe that Hagel regrets what he said about gays? I don’t think so. In fact, did he ever say any­thing (apolo­getic) between when­ever that inci­dent (when Hagel opposed an ambas­sado­r­ial appoint­ment on sex­ual ori­en­ta­tion grounds) occurred many years ago until his name was dis­cussed as sec­re­tary? Undoubt­edly, one of his friends said ‘you bet­ter get the gays off your back,’ but they don’t believe it, they don’t believe it at all. If he really believes what he says today, he would have said it a long time ago, not today.

This, if true, means the Gay com­mu­nity doesn’t care if Hagel actu­ally hates their guts as long as he gives them the demanded lip.

Update 3 It gets worse via Yid with Lid

ADL Head Abe Fox­man, ever will­ing to suckle at the teat of any pro­gres­sive leader. Back in mid-​December (before Lew began his “Love Chuck” calls) Foxman said this about a pos­si­ble Hagel pick:

“The sen­ti­ments he’s expressed about the Jew­ish lobby bor­der on anti-​Semitism in the genre of pro­fes­sors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt and for­mer pres­i­dent Jimmy Carter.”
His com­ments yes­ter­day were much tamer:
National Review says the Jew­ish Com­mu­nity is “out­raged”, I sus­pect if Jew­ish lead­ers are out­raged it’s only for being shown as dupes to the peo­ple in their com­mu­nity even before the president’s 2nd term begins.

FALSTAFF: My King, my Jove, I speak to thee, my heart!

KING: I know thee not, old man. Fall to thy prayers.

Henry IV Part 2 Act 5 Scene 5

One of the most frustrating things I run into regularly are people in complete denial. I see it in the church often, folks who go to Mass who are devoted to prayer who absolutely insist that the party of Abortion, Gay Marriage and the Obamacare mandates against the Church are not against Catholics because JFK was president and they simply can’t believe the party of Kennedy could possibly be against the church.

In the Jewish community I see the same. They look at the president Obama and his team and because of their historic connections to the Democrat party they can’t bring themselves to believe that the words he has said about Israel could be false and his support of the Jewish state could be hollow no matter what his record was.

Which Brings us to Chuck Hagel

Hagel nomination for defense was still just a rumor Glenn Reynolds linked: to this piece by Jen Rubin at the Washington post that said

President Obama believes in tough sanctions against Iran; Hagel does not. The president insists that he wants good relations with Israel (and thereby can influence its decision-making with regard to Iran); Hagel has displayed a poisonous animosity toward the Jewish state. Hagel has advocated direct negotiations with Hamas; Obama has never gone this far. The difficulty in articulating to foes and friends our positions on an array of issues is greatly magnified when a critical cabinet officials has a long track record of disagreement with the president, or at least what the president says is his current policy.

Well it appears the Chuck “Let the Jews pay for it” Hagel nomination is no longer theoretical.

Now if a GOP president nominated Hagel for this post Jewish Democrats would not hesitate to go after the pick as a slap in the face to Israel, with Obama making the same pick the reactions on the left should be…interesting.

I would cry for the American Jewish community but they willingly voted for Obama and thus are getting the government they deserve. I’ll give the last word via insty this to Powerline:

It was to be expected that, in a second term, Obama would show more clearly his true colors. In fact, he promised the Russians to do so.

And there is something to be said for the kind of clarity Hegal’s selection will bring.

I’d say American Jews were playing Falstaff but in fairness Obama isn’t turning from his former self, he’s always been this way.

Update:  It’s now official and I cleaned up the opening sentence that got away from me.

Update 2:  Ed Koch says something interesting:

Koch explained to The Algemeiner why he decided to back the President’s re-election even though he says he suspected that Obama would backtrack on his pro-Israel overtures. “I did what I thought was warranted and intelligent,” he said, “He was going to win! There was no question about it. I thought it would be helpful to have a Jewish voice there, being able to communicate.”

So Ed Koch suspecting Obama’s promises to Jews were BS decided to support him because he thought his victory was inevitable?  It’s a good thing England didn’t think that way in 1941 or there would have been no living European Jews to liberate or that Lincoln didn’t think that way in 1862 or there would be a Northern & Southern president right now.

Even more interesting is this:

Does anybody believe that Hagel regrets what he said about gays? I don’t think so. In fact, did he ever say anything (apologetic) between whenever that incident (when Hagel opposed an ambassadorial appointment on sexual orientation grounds) occurred many years ago until his name was discussed as secretary? Undoubtedly, one of his friends said ‘you better get the gays off your back,’ but they don’t believe it, they don’t believe it at all. If he really believes what he says today, he would have said it a long time ago, not today.

This, if true, means the Gay community doesn’t care if Hagel actually hates their guts as long as he gives them the demanded lip.

Update 3:  It gets worse via Yid with Lid

ADL Head Abe Foxman, ever willing to suckle at the teat of any progressive leader. Back in mid-December (before Lew began his “Love Chuck” calls) Foxman said this about a possible Hagel pick:

“The sentiments he’s expressed about the Jewish lobby border on anti-Semitism in the genre of professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt and former president Jimmy Carter.”
His comments yesterday were much tamer:
National Review says the Jewish Community is “outraged”, I suspect if Jewish leaders are outraged it’s only for being shown as dupes to the people in their community even before the president’s 2nd term begins.
