An acute observation from a man who wanted to believe otherwise. “Koch Outraged By Obama’s Treatment of Israel Over Housing Construction,” from FOXNews.com, April 1 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Former New York Mayor Ed Koch expressed disappointment in President Obama on Thursday for his treatment of Israel after it announced it would continue construction in East Jerusalem – the section of the holy city claimed by the Palestinians.
“I have been a supporter of President Obama and went to Florida for him, urged Jews all over the country to vote for him saying that he would be just as good as John McCain on the security of Israel. I don’t think it’s true anymore,” Koch told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto….
Was it ever true? No. Find out the truth of Obama’s record and associations regarding Jews and Israel in The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America.
Koch said he believes Obama “orchestrated” what happened in Israel.
“What they did is they wanted to make Israel into a pariah,” he said. “It’s outrageous in my judgment. ”
Koch said he’s shocked that Congress, which largely supports Israel hasn’t “stood up and said to the president, ‘you’re wrong on this, Mr. President.'” […]
“I believe that the Obama administration is willing to throw Israel under the bus in order to please Muslim nations,” Koch said. “We’ll know when I’m right or wrong.”
Oh, we know you’re right already.
