HOLY WEEK 2012: Romney & Christie Recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital; Obama Does Not!

Welcome to Holy Week, Save Jerseyans. Christians celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; meanwhile, our Jewish friends commemorate the feast of Passover and their deliverance from bondage.

Governor Chris Christie is celebrating by leading a large “Jersey to Jerusalem Trade Mission.” As the Christie Administration’s press releases accept matter-of-factly, Jerusalem is the traditional capital of Israeli people and their state. Sure, there are Islamic terrorists, European intellectuals and Palestinian politicians who insist otherwise, but American politicians have consistently supported our strongest regional ally’s claim to this sacred city.

Until now…

In 2008, then-candidate Barack Obama was vote hunting when he declared to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that (1) Israel and (2) the city of Jerusalem must remain “undivided” going forward:

Let me clear: Israel’s security is sacrosanct, it is non-negotiable, the Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive and that allows them to prosper, but any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized, defensible borders, and Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel and it must remain undivided.”

Fast forward to last week when now-President Obama’s foreign policy team put out a press release that referred to Israel and Jerusalem as separate entities (hat tip to Free Beacon). After realizing their so-called error, the State Department’s attempt to “clarify” its mistake succeeded only in compounding it:

Excuse me?

We’re supposed to leave the fate of Jerusalem up to the endless negotiations with extortions of a failed terrorist state? One that openly calls for the destruction of Israel, cheers the murder of civilians and airs horribly anti-semitic cartoons to brainwash its continually-sacrificed children?

It wasn’t always this way, but the only strong-throated support for Israel out there today is coming from the opposite side of the aisle of President Obama. When Chris Christie had his own chance to address AIPAC in February, he told the crowd to “Please judge me by the enemies I have made. In that same spirit, I would like to say to all of you tonight: I admire Israel for the enemies it has made.” Not very ambiguous! It’s the exact kind of crystal clear leadership we need on the international front.

Mitt Romney‘s campaign has adopted a similar approach, asking HOW peace could be possible in the Middle East when the Obama Administration continues to undermine its own ally:

The administration’s errors extend in other directions as well. President Obama has repeatedly and unilaterally created new preconditions for restarting peace talks. The result has been to encourage Palestinians simply to hold out and wait for Washington to deliver more Israeli concessions on a silver platter. Why, after all, should the Palestinians even negotiate with Israel if the White House is pressuring Israel without extracting any price from the Palestinians in return?”

Christie the Catholic and Romney the Mormon get it, Save Jerseyans.

Barack Obama, meanwhile, continues to openly undermine and double-cross our democratic allies in the Middle East, Eastern Europe and elsewhere. Sure, our enemies are treated with politically correct foolishness, but the advantages of friendship with the United State are getting harder to rationalize for folks with whom we need to maintain a working relationship for our own security interests.

That’s why Election 2012 is the time for all Americans – and especially our Jewish American friends – to wake up and engage these foreign policy issues with grave seriousness. More is at stake this year than our economic well-being – lives are on the line. Our global standing has dropped since January 2009. This President is ballooning the deficit while simultaneously slashing our ability to defend ourselves. His gross weaknesses, radical ideology and stunningly-infantile worldview are a threat to the safety and security of all free peoples. Moreover, his beloved “arab spring” continues to see radical Islamic regimes replace autocratic but secular alternatives that posed a significantly lesser threat to Israel and the U.S., too.

His foreign policy has been an abject disaster.

And remember, folks, that the worst butchers of history like Hitler always told us EXACTLY what they wanted to do. They were only able to engender atrocities because no one took them seriously or had enough courage to act, never because their murderous intentions were less-than-evident. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is of the same mold, and he will soon have two distinct advantages that the Nazis didn’t: (1) operative nuclear weapons and (2) a highly-concentrated target population.

Let’s vote the right way this November and hope it’s not already too late. This Easter Sunday, your Blogger-in-Chief will pray that Holy Week 2013 can be a time to rekindle old alliances and strengthen the bonds between freedom-loving and God-fearing individuals around the world. Equally, I will pray that it won’t be a period of human history marred by renewed anxiety, fear and oppression that could’ve been ameliorated by superior American leadership.

  3. This! If you believe that Obama will also guarantee $4 billion retooling tax credits and loan guarantees for domestic auto factories and parts manufacturers, so that the new fuel efficientautos can be built in the U.S. by domestic workers instead of overseas.
