There was a time in the 1960's when a US Politician or even the President would visit a Latin American nation and see signs all over the country stating: Yankee Go Home!
It was a way for people to protest an opposition to US Foreign Policy.
These so-called People's Protests were usually cooked up by the local Communist Party in the area as a way of giving the United States a Black Eye.
It has largely stopped, except for one place: Israel.
Although the protest was small, it was vocal.
"(US President Barack) Obama is a racist," said Rabbi Eliezer Waldman, the head of the "Nir" yeshiva in the West Bank town of Kiryat Arba.This would be considered an isolated incident except for recent Israeli polls showing that Obama's approval rating in Israel is at 6%. With a rating like that, I wonder why he tends to think that Israel is the 51st State. If it was, it would certainly have gone for McCain.
Waldman was speaking during a mass rally held Monday evening at Jerusalem's Paris Square in protest of the American demand that Israel halt all construction in the West Bank and east Jerusalem.
About 1,000 settlers and right-wing activists, including Knesset members Uri Ariel, Michael Ben-Ari (both from the National Union party) and David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu), marched towards the US Consulate, carrying torches and calling for US special envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell to "go home."
"How dare he (Obama) tell the Jews where they can or can't live? The era when Jews were banned from living in different places has ended," said Rabbi Waldman.
"Obama beware. This insolence will bring about the downfall of the American leadership," he said. "Anyone who dares give an order to prevent Israeli life in Jerusalem or anywhere else in the Land of Israel is destined to fall."
Yesha Council Director-General Pinchas Wallerstein said, "This week the American pressure reached new highs that are a shame to democratic societies. We are brought here by America's treatment of Israel as if it were a banana republic and its willingness to abandon us in order to gain the support of public opinion within the Islamic world."
Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East is failing. He cannot get the Arabs to even recognize Israel, he supports terrorists and their activities, he will allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons and he cannot force Israel to commit suicide.
Let us face it. Obama is way over his head and doesn't know what he is doing with regards to his foreign policy agenda.
The sad thing is that this was predicted way back during the campaign.
I TOLD YOU SO!
