2--SnyderTalk Editorial 4


The World is at a Tipping Point, Obama Brought us Here

The world is at a tipping point and Obama brought us here.  That’s not a partisan political statement.  It’s a factual statement that is supported by mountains of hard evidence.

See “Obama’s Harvest of Violence”:

Democracy, freedom, self-determination, human and individual rights are values that Arab liberals like myself thought we shared with the United States. That’s what you told us. For years, we’ve received training and attended workshops on democracy and freedom of expression sponsored by international NGOs and NGOs funded by the United States and the Europeans. We’ve been preached to by visiting American diplomats and think-tankers and journalists about the virtues of citizenship and democracy. We took plenty of notes. We’ve been told that if we speak out to defend our rights, we will be supported by America. And now we’ve been betrayed.

For many liberal Arab citizens like me, it looks like the United States is now taking sides in a sectarian conflict and turning a deliberate blind eye to violations of rights and values which are supposedly the core of what the United States represents. The United States is siding with the Shiites against the Sunnis. It is helping Assad, Hezbollah, and other allies of Iran stay in power. The United States has picked the Resistance axis over helping potential democracies to grow.

Last week, the pan-Arab newspaper Alhayat quoted a political source at the IAEA saying that Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif stated during the negotiations that Hezbollah and Hamas now work within “the American framework” and for the same goal: combatting terrorism in Syria and Iraq. The reality on the ground proves this statement is accurate. The U.S. intelligence community has now removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of states and organizations that support terrorism. Last year, Iran and Hezbollah were at the top of that list. Is the definition of “terrorism” really that flexible?

Obama continues to do damage all over the world, and Israel is in his crosshairs. Arabs know it as well as anybody including the Israeli people.  The only people who don’t seem to get it are Obama and his sycophants.

See “Arab leaders confronted with multiple crises at summit”:

Arab leaders meeting at a summit this week face rapidly deteriorating conflicts in Yemen and Libya, but have yet to agree on a concrete plan to counter a growing threat from Islamist militant groups and regional chaos.

Yemen’s crisis will be high on the agenda at the March 28-29 Arab League meeting in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, after the country’s foreign minister called on Arab states to intervene militarily.

The Iran-backed Shi’ite Houthi militia have dramatically expanded their fight for control of the country, which borders Saudi Arabia, since taking over the capital Sanaa in September.

By Wednesday, their forces had moved to within about 60 km (37 miles) of the southern port city of Aden where President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has sought refuge.

The Arab League’s deputy secretary general said on Wednesday the regional body would discuss a proposal by Yemen’s foreign minister for Arab states to intervene directly and halt the Shi’ite militia’s advance.

Obama is responsible for igniting these crises.  He didn’t create them, but they exploded because of him and his policies.  Iran is just one of the many crises.

See “A Complete Timeline of Obama’s Anti-Israel Hatred”:

According to reports, President Obama finally called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to congratulate him – but the “congratulations” was actually a lecture directed at forcing Netanyahu to surrender to the terrorist Palestinian regime.

For some odd reason, many in the media and Congress reacted with surprise to Obama’s supposedly sudden turn on Israel. The media, in an attempt to defend Obama’s radicalism, pretend that Netanyahu’s comments in the late stages of his campaign prompted Obama’s anti-Israel action.

But, in truth, this is the culmination of a longtime Obama policy of destroying the US-Israel relationship; Obama has spent his entire life surrounded by haters of Israel, from former Palestine Liberation Organization spokesman Rashid Khalidi to former Jimmy Carter National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, pro-Hamas negotiator Robert Malley to UN Ambassador Samantha Power (who once suggested using American troops to guard Palestinians from Israelis), Jeremiah Wright (who said “Them Jews ain’t going to let him talk to me”) to Professor Derrick Bell (“Jewish neoconservative racists…are undermining blacks in every way they can”). Here is a concise timeline, with credit to Dan Senor and the editors of Commentary.

Obama’s hatred for Israel started BEFORE he became president and intensified AFTER he was elected.

See, “U.S. Jewish Establishment Sounds Alarm as White House Rhetoric Intensifies”:

Criticism of Israel from the Obama administration has intensified to such a degree that Washington’s Jewish leaders are sounding the alarm.

​For years defensive of their support for US President Barack Obama and his White House, Washington’s pro-Israel establishment now fears that the train of US-Israel relations is “running off the tracks.” Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, their reactions ranged from deep concern to “bewilderment.”

“The fact that the outcome of a Democratic election in Israel seems to be of great concern” to the Obama administration, said David Harris, executive director of the American Jewish Committee, “is cause for deep anxiety and puzzlement.”

“Whatever the failings of the prime minister, the way this is unfolding runs completely contrary to the spirit of US-Israel relations,” Harris said. “The US appears to have a reasoned interest in prolonging the crisis.”

Since Benjamin Netanyahu secured re-election as prime minister last week, Obama administration officials have fiercely criticized his pre-election campaign rhetoric, including his warning to right-wing Israelis that Arab citizens were being bussed to the polls “in droves” and his declaration that the two-state solution would not come to fruition under his premiership.

When Jewish people in the U.S. who have supported Obama despite his hatred of Israel tell him to cool it, you know that things have gone too far.  Actually, things went too far a long time ago.

Also see, “On Israel and Iran, President Obama Mistakes Friend and Foe”:

A month ago, in a speech to the Chicago Global Forum, I argued that the Obama administration’s foreign policy could best be summarized this way: weak and uncertain. The administration indulges our enemies and attacks our friends. In the weeks that followed that speech, the problem has gotten worse and the world has only become more dangerous.

Consider American policy towards Iran, a nation that has waged a relentless campaign of terror and war-by-proxy against U.S. troops and American allies for more than three decades. The administration believes Iran will become a responsible partner for peace once it signs up to a deal that largely leaves in place its nuclear infrastructure. In a region that is in a near-constant state of conflict — with Iran as a primary instigator — this approach is foolish.

It is clear that nothing — not public opinion, not opposition from his own party in Congress, and not even the facts — will deter President Obama from a potentially risky agreement that may well allow Iran to intimidate the entire Middle East, menace Israel, and, most of all, threaten America.

This policy choice is a reflection of the way Obama has handled a range of foreign-policy matters. Instead of projecting American determination and leadership, he has either withdrawn from the stage or chosen to trust our enemies.

Jeb Bush wrote that article, and he nailed it.  Thanks to Obama’s foreign policy, the U.S. has abandoned our friends, especially Israel, and cozied up to our enemies, especially the Muslim Brotherhood and its many offshoots.

Obama’s actions set the Middle East on fire, and the flames will burn for awhile.  I have a hunch that we haven’t seen the worst of it yet and that the next president of the United States will spend most of his first term trying to undo the damage that Obama has done.

When the genie gets out of the bottle, he doesn’t want to go back in.  We’ll have to shove him in.  Containment is just a smoke screen.  Obliterate is the operative word.  Iran’s connection with the Muslim Brotherhood is key.  See “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and Iran”.

Finally, see “Yemen Was Washington’s Counterterrorism Success Story. Not Anymore”:

The sudden departure of U.S. special operations forces from Yemen marks a devastating blow to a counterterrorism campaign that Barack Obama’s administration had heralded as a success story, officials and experts say, as Washington suffers another intelligence reverse in the fight against the al Qaeda group that poses the greatest threat to Americans.

State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf sought Monday, March 23, to downplay the weekend exodus of about 100 U.S. special operations forces who had remained in Yemen even after the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa closed last month amid growing unrest between the government and Shiite Houthi militias seeking to unseat it.

But officials familiar with the special operations mission said years of training and hundreds of millions of dollars in equipment that U.S. forces had given to Yemeni troops now will all but certainly be lost. In addition, they said, nothing beats face-to-face contacts with intelligence sources in an era when terrorist networks increasingly are able to hack into U.S. government systems.

Bottom line: Obama has had no successes, counterterrorism or otherwise.  His record is marked by one dismal failure after another.  The chickens are coming home to roost.

No-one, including Obama, can thumb his nose at Yahweh with impunity.






13--Perspectives 2


Rowan Scarborough: ‘Islamist extremists,’ phrase rejected by Obama, embraced by allies— While President Obama and his aides insist that Muslim extremists have nothing to do with Islam the religion, other world leaders are leaving that approach behind. British Home Secretary Theresa May on Monday announced a get-tough policy that includes a comprehensive strategy to combat what she called “Islamist extremists,” a phrase the Obama administration officials have repeatedly refused to use. Ms. May said the new counter-extremism measures include the power to close sites “that are owned or occupied by extremists or are used to host extremist meetings or speakers.” It was widely interpreted in Britain to mean closing Islamic centers and mosques that foment intolerance and violence.

SnyderTalk Comment: This just goes to show how out-of-touch Obama is, and it leads me to believe that he is a closet Muslim—an extremist closet Muslim no less.  His actions for more than 6 years are consistent with that conclusion.  You can tell a tree by its fruit.

David Daoud: Jerusalem Officials Say Obama Administration is More Hostile Than Europe — ‘Not Even Half a Minute of Grace Was Given’— Israeli officials in Jerusalem said on Wednesday that the Obama Administration is acting in a manner that is more hostile to Israel than European governments, Israel’s Walla News reported. As the tensions between President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu were ratcheted up by the Administration this week, the officials in Jerusalem noted the relatively positive response from Europe to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s re-election last Tuesday. Since the results of the election came in showing that Netanyahu’s Likud had won 30 seats in the Knesset, European governments, as well as representatives of the European Union, have been content to send laconic congratulatory messages to Netanyahu, according to Walla‘s report. Some of the communiques also emphasized the importance of the negotiation process with the Palestinian Authority in order to achieve a two-state solution.

Dovid Efune: Israel’s Second Declaration of Independence— Make no mistake about it, Israel’s election last Tuesday amounted to a second declaration of independence for the modern Jewish State. To begin with, the election results were an anomaly. Netanyahu was right when he said upon winning that his party’s victory was “against all odds.” As has come to light in recent days, the effort to oust Netanyahu extended far beyond Israel’s borders. According to the Prime Minister, this drive involved tens of millions of dollars in foreign funding directed towards groups working to promote his opponents. One Israeli official even alleged that the Obama Administration was directly involved in the effort to defeat the PM.

SnyderTalk Comment: It saddens me to say this, but Israel needs to distance herself from the U.S.

It’s no wonder that J Street likes former Secretary of State Jim Baker.  They sing from the same song sheet.  With the Oslo Accords, Baker and his boss at the time, President George H.W. Bush, set in motion events that are still reverberating in the Middle East.

Obama is simply a continuation of their legacy.  We know from more than 20 years of experience with the Oslo Accords and the “two-state solution” it inspired that land for peace leads to no good.  In fact, it is unilateral withdrawal, and it doesn’t lead to peace.

Bill Clinton with all of his faults understood it.  So did George W. Bush.  I think Jeb Bush gets it, too.  Obama doesn’t have a clue.

The “two-state solution” leads to a confrontation with Yahweh.  That’s something the world doesn’t want to see, but I suspect that we will see it sooner rather than later.

Moshe Philips and Benyamin Korn: Israel’s Supporters Shouldn’t Fear Obama’s Threats— Why is the Obama Administration reportedly threatening to support a United Nations resolution calling on Israel to retreat to the pre-1967 armistice lines? This would be President Obama’s way of punishing Israel’s voters for choosing a government that is not to Obama’s liking – and would be intended to intimidate Israel and its supporters to give in to Arab territorial demands. The White House must think we have very short memories. Recall this headline from the New York Times from 2011: “Obama Sees ’67 Borders as Starting Point for Peace Deal.” Obama already used the “I’ll-support-the-1967-lines” threat four years ago. It didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.

SnyderTalk Comment: That’s correct, and the Israeli people shouldn’t fear Obama’s threats, either.  Yahweh will deal with him.

I wouldn’t want to be in Obama’s shoes when Yahweh gives him an attitude adjustment.

Does the name Nebuchadnezzar ring a bell?

The thought of Obama eating grass is interesting, but Yahweh is very imaginative.  We’ll see.

Louis Charbonneau and John Irish: Facing resistance, US pushes to meet deadline for Iran deal—The United States will struggle to secure a framework nuclear deal between Iran and major powers by a March 31 deadline, due to resistance from Tehran and scepticism among other countries, officials said. With the two sides resuming negotiations this week, Washington is under heavy pressure as it pushes for the political framework accord that would lay the foundations for a full deal with Iran by June 30. The aim is to curb Iran’s sensitive nuclear activities for at least a decade in exchange for an end to sanctions that have crippled its economy. However, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has rejected the idea of two accords, fearing a framework agreement would remove Tehran’s ability to negotiate on details, Iranian officials say. France, which blocked an interim deal in 2013 until changes were made, has doubts about trying to secure the framework agreement at the talks in Lausanne, Switzerland. It has suggested focusing on the June deadline. “(Saying that) an agreement has to be reached by the end of March is a bad tactic,” French Ambassador to Washington and former nuclear negotiator Gerard Araud said last week, warning against putting “pressure on ourselves to conclude at any price”.

Burgess Everett: Israel’s lobbying on Iran makes no difference, Democrats say—Israeli officials have mounted an aggressive push over the past three months to turn Senate Democrats against President Barack Obama’s nuclear negotiations with Iran — an effort that, according to The Wall Street Journal, was aided by Israeli spies who snooped on the nuclear talks and shared negative information with U.S. lawmakers. But interviews with numerous Democratic senators on Tuesday suggest the Israeli campaign in Congress against a nuclear agreement may have backfired. At best, several of them said, it’s made no difference and was simply a restatement of the Israeli government’s public antagonism toward a deal. In some cases, it appears to have made some lawmakers more sympathetic to the White House, given that the Israelis are decrying a deal that isn’t yet finished. “They are putting on a full-court press to say it’s a bad deal,” said Sen. Angus King of Maine, an independent who caucuses with Democrats and supports legislation that would allow Congress to approve or reject a deal. “The deal’s not done, it’s not completed and yet it’s being presented … as ‘it’s a bad deal.’ I’m not sure how you say it’s a bad deal,” King said. “We don’t know what the deal is.”

SnyderTalk Comment: That doesn’t surprise me.  Obama listens to no-one, and the more they know the less he listens.  He’s the personification of arrogance.

Bridget Johnson: Iran’s Chief Nuclear Negotiator: Lift All Sanctions First, No Concessions— Iran’s senior nuclear negotiator has stressed yet again that there is no deal with the P5+1 unless all sanctions on the Islamic Republic are lifted first. In fact, there are “no concessions” on Iran’s part forthcoming, he said. Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Seyed Abbas Araqchi said early this month that Tehran’s “principle position is that all sanctions are lifted at once.” Last week, 260 lawmakers in the 290-seat Islamic Consultative Assembly wrote a letter demanding that all sanctions be removed as a prerequisite for signing a nuclear deal. “As a guarantee for implementation, in case of any violation of obligations by the opposite side, the agreement will be declared null and void and enrichment will be resumed at any required level,” the lawmakers wrote.

Mike Lillis: Obama Risks Capitol Hill Backlash in Pursuit of Iran Nuclear Deal—Congress is growing hostile to the emerging nuclear deal with Iran.On Friday, 367 House lawmakers – including 129 Democrats – wrote to President Obama warning that a deal must “foreclose any pathway to a bomb.” At a Foreign Affairs Committee hearing Thursday, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) confronted Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken, accusing him of “misleading” the panel with claims that, under the potential deal, international inspectors could keep Iran’s nuclear program in check. “You’ve said…that, well, they can’t develop a nuclear weapon because that would be illegal,” Sherman said. “That’s a preposterous argument. Obviously, they’re willing to break the law.”

George H. Wittman: The Coming Iranian Bomb—It has been known in the nuclear arms community for the last six years that the Iranians had secured enough enriched U-235 for the creation of a first-generation implosion bomb. The construction of an actual bomb small enough to be dropped from a transport plane, or carried by a fishing trawler or small freighter, has been judged to be available since 2010. Figures from the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control point to Iran’s ability to create seven bombs if the enrichment of uranium was brought to 90%. Valerie Lincy and Gary Milhollin of the Wisconsin Project wrote on Feb. 24 that only 1.7 months would be necessary “to produce enough enriched uranium for one bomb.”

Alina Dain Sharon: The Big Inversion: White House Soft on Khamenei, Hard on Netanyahu— This week, the Obama administration had decidedly different attitudes about statements from leaders of the Jewish state of Israel and the Islamic Republic of Iran. As the negotiations on a nuclear deal in Lausanne, Switzerland, between the P5+1 powers and Iran near their March 31 deadline, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei responded to a crowd in Tehran shouting “Death to America” that, “Of course yes, death to America, because America is the original source of this pressure.” Khamenei was referencing the sanctions that have been levied on the Iranian economy and indicated an antagonistic view of the US that was clearly at odds with statements made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who recently said that “achieving a deal is possible” by the deadline.

Soeren Kern: France Declares War on Radical Islam— The French government has cut the social welfare benefits of nearly 300 jihadists who have left France to join the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Amid a rapidly expanding jihadist threat, it has also started confiscating passports, imposing travel bans and blocking access to jihadist websites. The moves are part of a raft of new anti-terrorism measures aimed at preventing French citizens or residents from joining jihadist groups abroad, and at slowing the spread of radical Islam at home. Muslim groups are criticizing the flurry of activity as “Islamophobia.” On March 17, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve revealed that the government has stopped paying welfare benefits to 290 French jihadists fighting with the Islamic State. He said that the agencies responsible for distributing welfare payments were being notified as soon as it was confirmed that a French citizen had left the country to fight abroad.

Yoel Guzansky and Udi Dekel: Recognizing Iran as a Nuclear Threshold State: Implications for Israel and the Middle East— While an arrangement that leaves Iran as a nuclear threshold state may be the lesser of all evils for the United States, it can be expected to be very bad for Israel. A signed agreement of this sort will widen the existing disputes between the Israeli government and the US administration, as well as the gaps in positions on how to deal with Iran. A dangerous shadow may be cast over the strategic relations between Israel and the US. At the same time, Israel stands to gain certain advantages with an agreement that stops Iran at the “threshold.” The immediacy of the threat of a nuclear attack against Israel will be somewhat reduced, together with the public’s fear of living in the shadow of the nuclear bomb. In turn, Israel’s need to maintain a high level of operational readiness for thwarting Iranian nuclear capability can be lowered somewhat. However, Israel will have to take action to contain the negative consequences of the agreement.

Tim Mak: Congress Totally Cool with Reports of Israel Spying on Iran Negotiations—Israel is spying on the U.S.-Iranian nuclear talks? No problem, key Democrats and Republicans in Congress say. “I don’t look at Israel or any nation directly affected by the Iranian program wanting deeply to know what’s going on in the negotiations – I just don’t look at that as spying,” said Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.). “Their deep existential interest in such a deal, that they would try to figure out anything that they could, that they would have an opinion on it….I don’t find any of that that controversial.”

Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror: Claims of Spying: American “Chutzpah”—The claims of Israeli spying are part of an intentional American campaign to undermine Israel’s standing among the American public and their elected officials, with the aim of limiting Israel’s ability to argue against the bad agreement that the West, led by the U.S., is poised to sign with Iran. For Israel, this is a vital struggle focused on a highly sensitive matter of national security. The Americans know this and are still sparing no effort to undermine Israel’s determination and abilities. The ugly accusation alleging Israel was spying on the U.S. is part of this American campaign. Israel does not spy on the U.S. and they know it. Everything else is manipulation meant to undermine Israel’s credibility in American public opinion. It is a shame things had to come to this, but the determination of the Americans to reach an agreement – any agreement – with the Iranians is leading to an unavoidable conflict.

Ron Ben-Yishai: U.S. Accusations of Israeli Espionage – Why Now?—The accusations from the U.S. over Israeli espionage, publishedMonday in the Wall Street Journal, are unfair and even a little ridiculous. The American administration and the government official who leaked the information are well aware that Israel is capable of obtaining this information in a completely legitimate manner from those who are party to the negotiations with Iran. What is unacceptable for Israel should also be unacceptable for the U.S. The article specifically states that the U.S. intercepted Israeli transmissions. Is it acceptable for the Americans to spy on a Middle Eastern ally? The reports are part of a calculated campaign waged by the U.S., with a clear political purpose.

U.S. Department of State: Obama: We Can’t Premise Our Diplomacy on the Peace Process on “Something that Everybody Knows Is Not Going to Happen for Years”—President Obama said during a news conference Tuesday: “With respect to Israel’s relations with the Palestinians, I think it’s important to understand that the issue here is not what I believe, but it’s what the Palestinians and the parties in the negotiations and the Israeli people believe is possible….There still does not appear to be a prospect of a meaningful framework established that would lead to a Palestinian state.” “When I said that we have to now do an evaluation of where we are, it’s not in reference to our commitment to Israel’s military edge in the region, Israel’s security, our intelligence cooperation, our military cooperation. That continues unabated.” “The evaluation that’s taking place is specific to what happens between the Israelis and Palestinians going forward….What we can’t do is pretend that there’s a possibility of something that’s not there. And we can’t continue to premise our public diplomacy based on something that everybody knows is not going to happen at least in the next several years.” “I have a very business-like relationship with the prime minister. I’ve met with him more than any other world leader. I talk to him all the time. He is representing his country’s interests the way he thinks he needs to, and I’m doing the same….So this can’t be reduced to a matter of somehow let’s all hold hands and sing ‘Kumbaya.’ This is a matter of figuring out how do we get through a real knotty policy difference that has great consequences for both countries and for the region.”

Cecily Hilleary: Saudi Military Buildup Could Escalate Yemen Crisis—As Yemen’s president fled the country on Wednesday and descended on the nation’s main port, neighboring Saudi Arabia watched closely, having moved troops and heavy weapons this week to areas along the Yemeni border. Yemen has asked its Gulf neighbors to intervene against the Iran-backed Houthi rebels. Saudi’s foreign minister has warned that if the Houthi coup in Yemen does not end peacefully, the Kingdom is prepared to take “necessary” measures. The Saudis have indicated that the border buildup is defensive. But a U.S. government source said the Saudis could consider air strikes if the Houthis reach Aden, where ex-President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi has been hiding since fleeing Sana’a last month. There are reports the Houthis had advanced to within just miles of the southern port.

Exodus 4: 1-5

1 Then Moses said, “What if they will not believe me or listen to what I say? For they may say, ‘Yahweh has not appeared to you.’” 2 Yahweh said to him, “What is that in your hand?” And he said, “A staff.” 3 Then He said, “Throw it on the ground.” So he threw it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. 4 But Yahweh said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand and grasp it by its tail”—so he stretched out his hand and caught it, and it became a staff in his hand— 5 “that they may believe that Yahweh, the God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.”

14--Blessings from Revelation 2

Blessings in the Book of Revelation is a book that you need to read, especially now.  There are blessings throughout the Scriptures but Revelation is the only book in the Bible actually containing a specific blessing for reading it. It’s repeated twice, once at the beginning and again at the end. This is the reason that I believe Revelation should be the first step toward studying biblical prophecy. Though not easy to do, Revelation can be broken down and understood by anyone, not just the academic elite. So, Revelation’s blessings are for everyone.  Click here to order the eBook.  Click here to order the paperback.
