    "ISRAEL RIGHT OR WRONG" or "AMERICA'S BEST INTEREST"
    ==========================================

    Romney's "Israel right or wrong" position,

    considered in conjunction with

    Obama's "America's best interest" remarks

    plus

    Obama's recent failure (refusal?) to accept Netanyahu's recent request for a talk,
    and
    Obama's referring to Israel not as our closest ally
    but simply as an ally,

    and

    Obama's reference to the demands of American Jewry and Israeli officialdom
    that we either strike Iran
    or authorize Israel to do so,
    as
    "noise"

    are happenings almost completely ignored by the
    US Israeli controlled news media
    and
    by those who post only in support of Israeli positions.

    Such happenings indicate that we may now be seeing
    a marked divide between the foreign policy positions of Obama and Romney
    with Romney saying
    "Israel right or wrong"
    and Obama replying that
    "I will act only in the best interest of America."

    If those are the positions of the two candidates,
    and such positions are verified by events transpiring between now and November 6,
    one must give some consideration to voting for Obama.

    Just when I think the intellectual level of anti-semites can't get any lower I am proven wrong by the appearance of morons like this.

    But then, when we turn the page,

    we find an article that appeared in The Independent on September 25, 2012
    describing Obama's last, and, perhaps, final, speech at the UN General Assembly.


    The article tells us that Obama's
    =================================================================


    "*** speech to an annual gathering of world leaders at the UN General Assembly was his last before the November election, and campaign politics shadowed his words as he also spoke forcefully on Iran's nuclear programme, the peace prospects between Israelis and Palestinians and the tensions that can come with freedom of speech.

    "I do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders, in all countries, to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism," Mr Obama said.

    ***

    Mr Obama also warned that the time to peacefully curb the Iranian nuclear crisis is running out. Iran insists its nuclear programme is peaceful, but fears that it is pursuing nuclear weapons have led Israel to threaten an attack.

    Mr Obama said there is "still time and space" to resolve the issue through diplomacy, but he said that time is not unlimited.

    "Make no mistake: A nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. It would


    threaten the elimination of Israel,


    the security of Gulf nations


    and the unravelling of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty," he said.

    Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has accused Mr Obama of not being tough enough on Iran and of turning his back on Israel and other allies in the Middle East. Mr Romney also has said he does not have much faith in peace prospects between Israelis and Palestinians.

    ***

    Mr Obama said that "at a time when anyone with a cellphone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button," the notion that governments can control the flow of information is obsolete.

    "The strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech - the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect," he said.

    ***"

    =============================================

    So what is to be said in favor of a candidate for the office of President who derides Israeli efforts to involve in a war with Iran as "noise"
    but
    who then says:


    ""Make no mistake: A nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained"


    ***

    and who then gives as his reasons for the need for such containment
    that a nuclear armed Iran would:

    "threaten the elimination of Israel", ---------------------------------------
    a nation that has least the third largest store of the world's nuclear weapons,
    "the security of Gulf nations," ---------------------------------------------
    headed by ruthless off with their heads dictators,
    and
    "the unravelling of the nuclear non-proliferation treaty",----------------
    which Iran has signed and complies with,
    and Israel has neither signed nor complied with.

    And, having engaged in multiple violations of the rights guaranteed by our constitution Obama praises our court-broken constitution for its effort to defend free speech, and then points out,
    perhaps ominously, that:

    "***anyone with a cellphone can spread offensive views around the world with the click of a button***"


    SHOCKLEY


    Romney, on the other hand, is at least consistent
    in adhereing to his "Israel, right or wrong" policy
