ORLANDO, November 9, 2013 — In a unilateral move that Republican Jews have expected for some time, President Obama has finally given Iran the green light to obliterate Israel. Now that he is safely reelected, Obama has “more flexibility” to allow Iran to wipe Israel off of the map.
Obama did not explicitly state that he wants Israel eradicated from this planet. He just has finally admitted his indifference to preventing such an atrocity.
Iran wants to destroy Israel. Iran is run by mullahs who have explicitly stated their intention to do this. American liberals have responded to this rhetoric by insisting that this is just silly rhetoric. Jokes about annihilation are just good-natured ribbing among friends. Ishmael and Isaac were brothers, so Iranian threats of starting a nuclear holocaust are no more serious than an older Islamist brother threatening to give his Jewish kid brother a noogie.
When conservatives are in power, the preferred option to dealing with terrorist nations like Iran is the use of force. Force works. The liberal approach, perfected by Jimmy Carter, is to do nothing and allow terrorists to kill infidels — Israelis and Westerners — with impunity.
Tired of being seen as weaklings who get innocent people killed, liberals came up with a middle ground between outright military victory and curling up in the fetal position. That third way is called “sanctions.” Though utterly useless, sanctions allow a policy of “tough inaction” to be seen as actually doing something. Variations on this theme come in the form of “tough sanctions,” “sanctions with teeth,” “sanctions with bite,” and the completely meaningless “meaningful sanctions.”
As a leftist, President Obama will not use force against Iran. He won a Nobel Peace Prize for his winning smile. His first term approach to Iran was to let the mullahs slaughter their own citizens and put down a popular uprising that could have actually improved the world. Yet even Obama was not going to undo sanctions with a tough reelection battle upcoming. He claimed in front of Jewish audiences that regarding Iran, “containment is not an option.”
Now safely reelected, even a useless cosmetic gimmick such as sanctions is too hard on the terrorists. Iran is now free to move warp speed toward building nuclear bombs. Secretary of State John Kerry and other State Department officials are pretending that there will be compliance enforcement mechanisms. The mullahs will have to work hard to contain their laughter in front of the cameras. Saddam Hussein undermined sanctions against Iraq through European and United Nations corruptocrats desperate for oil. The mullahs will do likewise.
When Obama claimed that containment was not an option, liberal Jews were convinced that he was willing to use force to prevent a second Holocaust. Now we see that his only plan is to let Iran run wild. The evidence is his handling of every other nation in the region.
When warned that Israel could be eliminated, liberal Jews insisted that Obama was pro-Israel. They cited his support for gay marriage, climate change, and abortion rights as Jewish values. When told that Israel is a foreign policy issue and not a social issue, liberal Jews looked confused.
Obama assured them that the Affordable Care Act covered proctological services, and that if they liked their heads up their behinds, they could absolutely keep them there. Cranio-gluteal extraction surgery is not covered under the new plan.
Bending down and kissing their own behinds goodbye is also an option.
The only thing preventing Iran from sending its worst and dumbest suicide bombers against us is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. While Obama may or may not be passively opposed to Israel’s obliteration, Netanyahu is actively against it. Netanyahu has figured out that the penalty for defying Obama is absolutely nothing.
Israel will act unilaterally because Obama has successfully isolated the Jewish state. Iran is now emboldened because they know that Netanyahu lacks the support of Obama and politically liberal Jews who confuse Obama and Yahweh.
Of course Iran will build nuclear bombs. Of course containment has now failed. Of course the Middle East will explode into an inferno. Of course Iran can move forward.
What do they expect Obama and liberal Jews to say or do — something?
