I think that this decision by President Obama was a unique decision in many ways. Because I don’t have to tell you, and this was just said time and time and over again this afternoon/this evening, that the United States is not in a position the way it was many years ago in the Middle East, it has its problems, it has its considerations, and rightly so. But I believe the leadership that the President of the United States showed on that night was a leadership of historic dimensions. It was he who took the ultimate decision that night which prevented what could have been a sad outcome—instead of six men coming home, the arrival in Israel of six body bags.
Emphasis from the original piece.
What an anti-Semite Obama is. He could have stayed out of this mess, let the six Israelis be killed by the Egyptian mob, and let Netanyahu take unilateral action against Egypt (starting with the suspension of diplomatic ties) and perhaps Palestinians (Israel's ever-present punching bag). This would have resulted in further Israeli isolation, and perhaps a declaration of Palestinian statehood in the UN, which the US would have vetoed but suffered serious diplomatic setbacks. But instead, he was able to persuade the leadership in Egypt to send their best troops onto Israeli territory to rescue Israelis from certain death. An act like this could actually lead to an expression of gratitude from Netanyahu towards Egypt for putting their soldiers in harm's way to protect Jews, and could improve American relations with Arabs and Muslims, not to mention the Jewish state, whose relationship with Obama has been characterized by some serious nose-thumbing and arrogance. What a hater!
