Who can decide for an entire democratic nation what is good for it and for its people?

Why the Quarrel?

I understand that Obama and his team have certainly developed a plan for peace between Israel’s leader Netanyahu and PLO leader Mr Abbas. It is not easy for a nation, who during WWII lost six million of its members, for the sole reason that they were Jews, to believe that the president of the United States will be successful in concluding peace with their neighbors, knowing that many American presidents have tried it unsuccessfully before him. Furthermore they had a bad experience with the Arabs, who today call themselves Palestinians. The Israelis know from their experience, what would be, if peace with the people of the West Bank would turn that land into Hamas land, and these people would start again firing rockets, hitting Israeli villages, disturb lives and leave dead and crippled people behind.

Those who experienced war know very well the meaning of trust. From the onset, our President did not make any effort to gain the trust of the Israeli people, although the American Jews gave him a chance and supported him during the election and during debates in the Congress. Obama cannot expect that the American Jews would persuade their fellow Jews in Israel to trust them with their life, as after all, they are the ones who fought the battles and lost children and members of their family, while their American Jewish brothers lived in a comfortable and secure environment.

Furthermore the Iranian problem is an additional burden on the Jews and for the State of Israel, for its people and for its leaders. We heard many times Iran president Mahmud Ahmadinejad saying he will soon annihilate Israel. The West does nothing against this country. How can one expect that the Israelis take his word leisurely? I believe that our president means well for Israel, but in such an environment how can one understand and trust anyone else with the life of an entire nation?

Obama, who is an intellectual and a man who also experienced the division between his dad and his mom, should understand and should have an affinity for the Jews, at least to demonstrate his appreciation for those who helped him, in the same way he showed empathy for the Arabs. The writer of these lines also has empathy for the Arabs, as well as a love for his people. My dream is to reach peace between the parties. In my view Obama and his team have neither patience nor understanding for the Israeli leader, Mr. Netanyahu. Is it because of different political views? Any imposed peace cannot hold, if it goes against the will of the people, particularly with a nation of people who passed very bitter experiences in their lives. Is this the moment to antagonize and make more enemies? Are we looking to turn Israel into a vassal state, and make it do desperate acts that we cannot control? I don’t think so. The American people are smart enough not to choose a destructive path for the people of the Bible.

Dear Anthony, first, I thank you for your kind comment in reference to my article. I am really saddened by the silence of my colleagues in reference to my article about Israel and Obama. I don't have the slightest hatred against anyone, including Obama or the Muslim people. I grew up in Africa with them and know their friendship and their hospitality well. I don't judge Obama by his color, but by his actions. The truth, his tendency to change America the way he wanted, bothers me. In my view, he is making a big mistake and the future will tell. I am not young anymore and I have lived through much suffering and many situations, not including WWII. I love every human being but I don't like to repeat the sad history, which I know well. God Bless You, your friend Emile

Hi Emile, I think that Obama does not have the experience to be President. However one thing really disturbs me there is a lot of racial hatred going on with this man. All one has to do is read the comments here at the den. The social issues he talks about were even mentioned when Ike was President. He is in office for two more years if you want him out than vote him out. Now I am not writing about you I am writing about those who dispise him for his tan. What do YOU think, Emile?

I hope people would read Nevil Shute's "On the beach" that contrary to George Orwell's "1984" is based not on speculations and ifs, but on a reality so frighteningly accurate that one doesn't wonder if but when.
