“I want the Iranians to know that if I’m the president, we will attack Iran… We would be able to totally obliterate them and those people who run Iran need to know that.”
Now that Obama seems the Democrats’ likely choice for the Presidential nomination, he is pledging his allegiance to Israel and re-assuring the Israeli lobby (that pretty much controls American foreign policy) that Israel’s interests will come before America’s – this has been the Bush policy for the last eight years.
Israel will continue to get our tax money, weapons, air planes, missiles, bombs, bulldozers, etc so they can brutally oppress the Palestinians, continue to steal their land, destroy their homes and build Israeli settlements on top of them. And every time Israel commits crimes of humanity and violates human rights – we will give them a gold medal and call them “men of peace” as Bush did to Sharon.
Democratic White House contender Barack Obama says the US would be fully committed to Israel’s security if he is elected president.
“America’s commitment to Israel’s security is unshakable,” the 46-year-old presidential hopeful said Thursday during a brief speech at a celebration to mark the 60th anniversary of Israel.
“I am absolutely convinced that our friendship between the two nations is unbreakable, the Illinois senator added.
“I pledge to you that I will do whatever I can in whatever capacity to not only ensure Israel’s security, but also to ensure that the people of Israel may thrive and prosper and build on the enormous promise that was made 60 years ago,” Senator Obama continued.
