Obama’s Blame the Jews Grand Strategy

Jack Kemp

Watching the actions of the Obama regime concerning everything from his (recent) insulting Benjamin Netanyahu at the G20 Summit in Cannes to Obama having his Ambassador to Belgium stating that Muslim anti-semitism is the fault of the Jews,7340,L-4156355,00.html to Obama’s attempt to lessen sanctions on the Iranian regime in Congress, as Iran presses to go nuclear to Obama’s refusal to either attempt to destroy or recapture the downed high tech drone plane that fell into Iran’s hands - all these events lead me to only one conclusion about Obama’s Grand Strategy which I will shortly state.

If the previous examples weren’t enough, Roger Chapin, writing recently in, stated:

The Obama Administration’s strong opposition to a U.S. preemptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities virtually guarantees we’ll suffer far worse consequences than Obama’s policy is intended to avert.

I say this because our naïve, head-in-the-sand policy leaves the Israelis no rational option other than to launch their own preemptive strike—before it's too late, to best ensure their national survival. This in the face of messianically-driven Iranian zealots who are sworn to Israel's annihilation and who could well be within months of procuring nuclear weapons.

The reality is that without resorting to large scale nuclear strikes, Israel, unlike the U.S., lacks the wherewithal to cripple Iran's retaliatory capabilities and prevent its wreaking havoc with Persian Gulf oil exports, which could drive prices through the roof and severely damage our own economy. This, of course, is exactly the opposite of what U.S. inaction is designed to do.

I believe Mr. Chapin is understating Obama’s “Cloward and Piven on an international scale” ambitions. There is nothing in his actions over the last three years that leads one to believe Obama is not challenging Iran’s nuclear program so that Israel will be forced to take the lead and take the blame if and when they attack Iran in some open manner, such as a bombing raid or with missiles. Such an event will result in huge oil price hikes which will harm the West’s capitalist economies – and will create a situation where Obama – and his Belgian Ambassador Gutman - can blame, one again, the Jews for the problems of the world. And that also includes Jewish commodity speculators and hedge fund operators on Wall Street who contributed to both of Obama’s Presidential campaign funds. This is doubly convenient because it takes the spotlight away from Obama’s economic failings and makes it “all Israel’s fault,” a perfect scapegoat excuse.

Last week the founder of the Wall Street investment company Omega Advisers, Leon Cooperman, wrote an open letter to President Obama. Mr. Cooperman is also publicly active in Jewish charity. The letter to President Obama began this way:

Dear Mr. President,

It is with a great sense of disappointment that I write this. Like many others, I hoped that your election would bring a salutary change of direction to the country, despite what more than a few feared was an overly aggressive social agenda. And I cannot credibly blame you for the economic mess that you inherited, even if the policy response on your watch has been profligate and largely ineffectual. (You did not, after all, invent TARP.) I understand that when surrounded by cries of “the end of the world as we know it is nigh,” even the strongest of minds may have a tendency to shoot first and aim later in a well-intended effort to stave off the predicted apocalypse.
Barack Obama, here during his campaign, provided hope he’d move the country in a new and better direction — but has disappointed by leading the rancorous political discourse.

But what I can justifiably hold you accountable for is your and your minions’ role in setting the tenor of the rancorous debate now roiling us that smacks of what so many have characterized as “class warfare.” Whether this reflects your principled belief that the eternal divide between the haves and have-nots is at the root of all the evils that afflict our society or just a cynical, populist appeal to his base by a president struggling in the polls is of little importance.

Mr. Cooperman’s tone here is clearly that of someone who has at least verbally supported Obama’s presidency in the past, and probably also with his 2008 vote. The letter all but blames President Bush and TARP, three years in the past, for a significant part of current economic troubles. By giving Obama an excuse now, Cooperman clearly wrote a far different letter than Rick Santelli or another conservative would author.

Mr. Cooperman goes on to talk about his humble beginnings in the Bronx at P.S. 75 and Morris High School, but it will all be to no avail, as he will be blamed along with other Wall Street Jews (and Gentiles) and Benjamin Netanyahu’s military for any wild spike in oil prices to $10 or more a gallon. This will further hurt the middle class and make many already stressed people look for a scapegoat. Who has been the world’s number one historic scapegoat? That’s right: The Jews.

For those choosing to defend Obama from my opinionated accusations with their own “reasonable” explanations and excuses for his lack of stewardship in safeguarding America against Iran developing nuclear weapons, my most sanguine reply would be the following. If Obama was consciously doing all the above mentioned facts – plus his offshore oil drilling red tape de facto bans to hurt Western Civilization, Capitalism and the Jews, how would his behavior be any different? Whether you agree with my assessment of Obama’s motives or not, can one argue against the conclusion that Israel may soon be forced to attack Iran alone to defend its very existence, a situation that will result in higher oil prices and an opportunity for Obama and others to “lead from behind,” i.e., let others take the blame for acting on one of few choices, all of them difficult. And Obama can join in this chorus of Blame the Jews just as he did indirectly by supporting the openly anti-semitic Occupy Wall Street. This leaving of Israel – and the Jews and their associates on Wall Street – to take the blame for the crisis is, in my opinion, the icing on the cake for Obama. He does not want a separate Jewish state in the Middle East acting in their own self interest against the “reasonableness” of himself, George Soros, and the European Union. Indeed, Obama probably sees Israel as a continuation of European colonialism, much as oppressed his very absent father in Kenya.

In 1981, when Israel bombed the Osiris nuclear reactor in Iraq, we saw the small nation criticized in a stinging rebuke in the U.S. Capitol Building. By 1991, those criticisms turned to words of thanks. If an attack on Iran by Israel were to happen now, one would wonder how long it would take those in Congress to realize they had just seen an example of Israel “doing the jobs that Americans won’t do.” Sophistry and being a follower of Alinsky or Frantz Fanon is the not the same taking responsibility as President.
