Prior to President Barak Obama taking office, the U.S. and Israel had a very close relationship. Since taking office, Obama has managed to destroy U.S.-Israeli relations. He has scorned and disparaged Israel constantly, and he continues to do so.
According to Conservative Tribune, Obama’s latest slap in the face to the Jewish people came when he was on a call with some left-wing activists about gathering support for his nuclear deal with Iran. During the conference call, Obama made thinly veiled insults against American Jews, using the outdated stereotype of rich Jews using their money to control the U.S. to complain about their opposition to the Iranian nuclear deal. Obama then went on and accused those against this deal of being “opposed to any deal with Iran,” which implies they would want a war with Iran.
Obama also railed against “well-financed” lobbyists, as well as the “big check writers to political campaigns” and “billionaires who happily finance super-PACs.” Obama also negatively referenced the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) by complaining about the “$20 million” being spent on ads against the nuclear deal. The AIPAC was instrumental in getting Obama elected, but now that they have strayed from the party line, he has no use for them.
This craziness didn’t stop with money. Obama then went on and also accused these same people of being “responsible for us getting into the Iraq war.” This is apparently a reference to a 2007 book titled “The Israeli Lobby” that accused Israeli groups of orchestrating the war with Iraq. It should be noted that this book has been largely discredited.
Obama will do and say anything to get this deal passed, even though the majority of Americans are opposed.
