«Obama doesn’t want to destroy America’s relation with Israel. He’s trying to organize Tzipi Livini’s campaign for prime minister, or at least for her inclusion in a broad-based centrist government».
This is claimed by prominent American journalist Jeffery Goldberg. He wrote this in a column in The Atlantic magazine.
A prominent American journalist considered close to US President Barack Obama claimed on Tuesday that the White House deliberately caused a public row with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The US hopes of creating a rupture in his governing coalition that would necessitate bringing Opposition leader Tzipi Livni’s Kadima party into the cabinet in the place of right-wing factions Shas and Yisrael Beiteinu.
Obama feels no progress can be made in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks so long as Avigdor Lieberman of Beiteinu and Eli Yishai of Shas are in the government. While Livni’s office declined comment, her close ally MK Shlomo Molla warned the Obama administration against interfering in Israeli politics.
«We don’t need Obama’s help. But we agree that the current coalition is bad for Israel and for US-Israel relations; and that if Livni was working with Obama, there would be much more trust from the White House».
Meantime, representatives of several Israeli parties took offense at Goldberg’s characterization of them as «gangsters» That include Israel Beiteinu) messianists (Habayit Hayehudi) and medievalists (Shas and United Torah Judaism).
President Obama seems to be of the opinion that Israel is not a sovereign democatic nation, but a Latin American style puppet of Washington.
The US has a long and dirty record of getting its political will done, if required through CIA style pressure and hidden operations. Also contract assassinations.
I do not know how many million US dollars it will take to tempt Benjamin Netanyahu to jump when Obama says jump. But you can be sure. Obama has an arsenal of CIA-carrots hidden is his pockets. Lets pray that Bibi do not fall into temptations offered by the devil and his children.
God of Israel has always acted when His people have been disobedient towards Him. First He waited, and sent prophets to rebuke His people. Than He punished sin and wickedness. The return of the Messiah will be a painful moment also for those Jews who corrupted them selves and joined forces that harms the Jewish nation and tries to divide Jerusalem.
