Netanyahu may care about the peace, but his actions have the opposite effect. Let’s look at his actions and how they impact the average American and the average Israeli.
America would have been screwed had Romney been elected the president, Netanyahu would have bulldozed him into bombing Iran, and we the common Americans would have had to live with another decade of losing jobs, divorcing spouses, facing foreclosures and dread budget deficits. Thank God for giving us the sense to re-elect Obama.
Right now the gas prices are coming down, its $2.80/gallon, and the contractors can get out and drive and increase the economic activity creating more jobs. I pray Obama continues the path of dialogue with Iran and bring peace to the world.
My fear is that Netanyahu will attempt to screw up the process as he has done in the past, and blame Obama that he is anti-Israel. The lobby will jump on it and work on buying out Republicans to dance to their tunes.
What Netanyahu and his buddies don’t get is, war mongering is bad for Israel, and their policies have continued to isolate Israel in the eyes of the world as a bully nation. The Americans may not see it, but look at the UN voting record and the news papers around the world. People hate anyone one who gets away because of the military power and our support. In the long run this is not good for Israel or America. If you seriously look at it, Netanyahu is bad for Jews and bad for America.
Israel needs security – i.e., her citizens need to drop their fears and go anywhere in the world as free citizens or even live in Israel without fear. You cannot have peace when you threaten the people around you; both live in fear and apprehension. Blaming the Palestinians will earn some brownie points and more aid to Israel, but that guarantees continued insecurity to the people living there.
Israel is pushing Iran to dig in her heels; it’s bad for Jews in the long haul.
When God created animals, he gave horns and fangs to settle their disputes, but gave the brains and the tongue to humans to square their conflicts through dialogue. I am not sure where Mr. Netanyahu belongs. I urge him to be human.
Obama is good for America, good for Israel, good for the Palestinians and good for the world. He has the God given gift to find solutions, he flexes his muscles to produce clear results like getting Hakim, Bin Laden, and Awalaki, but he has the wisdom to steer us away from destruction.
God Bless America and God Bless Obama.
