Hitler Would Approve

May 19, 2011

In his address today on U.S. policy in the Middle East (to the extent one can call President Obama’s Tourett’s-like utterings “policy”), Mr. Obama said that borders of a "sovereign, non-militarized" Palestinian state "should be based on 1967 lines [aka Auschwitz lines] with mutually agreed swaps."

I can’t help but wonder if Mr. Obama knows what a "sovereign, non-militarized" state is, much less whether or not Israel should sacrificially shrink itself in order to create one next door. What would Mr. Obama do when the faux “non-militarized state” militarized itself up the wazoo???

PM Netanyahu should tell Mr. Obama to clean up the mess on his own border before he offers useless advice to Israel. Whether or not Netanyahu actually does that depends on the decibel level of applause (and number of standing ovations) Obama gets when he speaks to the AIPAC crowd this weekend.

[Please, folks, no more emails asking me how the American Jewish community could do that, i.e., invite Mr. Obama to their pro-Israel conference, much less give him a big round of applause?! As many of you should know by now, that community bewilders me as much as it bewilders you.]
