Peace in Our Time?

In 1938 Neville Chamberlain sacrificed the Czech Government to the Nazis in the name of peace and a misguided concern for the Czech peoples. On May 19, 2011 President Barack Hussein Obama appeared to sacrifice Israel to the Palestinians and the Arab world. The speech below by Neville Chamberlain as he sacrificed the Czech Republic to the Nazis is eerily familiar in tone and style to President Obama’s “Middle East” Speech.

I can well understand the reasons why the Czech Government have felt unable to accept the terms which have been put before them in the German memorandum. Yet I believe after my talks with Herr Hitler that, if only time were allowed, it ought to be possible for the arrangements for transferring the territory that the Czech Government has agreed to give to Germany to be settled by agreement under conditions which would assure fair treatment to the population concerned…

However much we may sympathize with a small nation confronted by a big and powerful neighbor, we cannot in all circumstances undertake to involve the whole British Empire in war simply on her account. If we have to fight it must be on larger issues than that. I am myself a man of peace to the depths of my soul. Armed conflict between nations is a nightmare to me; but if I were convinced that any nation had made up its mind to dominate the world by fear of its force, I should feel that it must be resisted. Under such a domination life for people who believe in liberty would not be worth living; but war is a fearful thing, and we must be very clear, before we embark upon it, that it is really the great issues that are at stake, and that the call to risk everything in their defense, when all the consequences are weighed, is irresistible.

The one major difference between the Czech Republic and the State of Israel is that Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, has tentatively refused President Obama’s gracious offer of appeasement and self destruction.

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that U.S. President Barack Obama’s vision of a Palestinian state on the borders of 1967 could leave the Jewish state “indefensible”.

“The viability of a Palestinian State cannot come at the expense of Israel’s existence,” the Israeli leader said in a statement before flying to Washington for scheduled talks with Obama on Friday.”


The landscape of the Middle East is in the midst of unprecedented turmoil. It is unclear with whom Israel will have to negotiate this “Obama Peace” from Egypt to Tunisia. Egypt has The Muslim Brotherhood slowly taking political control, while Hezbollah, Iran, and Al-Qaeda are working diligently to destabilize the Middle East region and fill the political void with Shariah Compliant Political Islam.

Israel’s two primary Palestinian peace partners in the Obama scenario are Hamas and Fatah. Hamas and Fatah have been actively engaged in a civil war since 2006 until a reconciliation agreement was signed in May of 2011. The conflict is called Wakseh among Palestinians, meaning humiliation, ruin, and collapse as a result of self-inflicted damage.

President Obama, in his May 19th speech, did not even call for Hamas to amend its Charter to normalize relations with Israel, in writing. The Hamas Charter states,

“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it…There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors, and “The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up.”

Until the above hate-filled elements of the Hamas Charter are removed, the roadmap to the destruction of Israel are unambiguous and clearly defined in both words and action.

In President Obama’s speech he described the popular uprisings in the Middle East as

“ …when the actions of ordinary citizens spark movements for change because they speak to a longing for freedom that has been building for years. In America, think of the defiance of those patriots in Boston who used to pay taxes to a King, or the dignity of Rosa Parks as she sat courageously in her seat. So it was in Tunisia that tapped into that frustration felt throughout the country.”

It has been reported that these “movements of change” in the Middle East are led by the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Al-Qaeda and a myriad of lesser known terrorist organizations. The goal of these terrorist organizations is to demand the “freedom” to choose Shariah Compliant Islam as a legal and governmental political ideology.

The fact our President attempts to attach the American concept of freedom and liberty to Shariah Islam exposes a willful ignorance of our Constitution, at best. Or worse, a calculated move to elevate Shariah Islam from a totalitarian political system into a secular humanist utopia.

It is imperative the Liberal Jews in America and Israel wake up and read the writing on the wall. President Obama looks at Israel as an oppressive U.S. colonial State occupying Jordanian/Palestinian land. Obama has raised the stakes and put Israel’s survival and national security recklessly at risk. Israel will always be America’s greatest Democratic ally in the Middle East.

Whether you are a Democrat or Republican is irrelevant when it concerns the national security of the State of Israel. President Obama’s Middle East speech should cement your resolve to stand in support of Israel. I stand with Israel, and so should you.

God Bless America and God Bless our Troops. America and Israel Ackbar.
