"President Obama cannot claim to stand by our allies in Israel if his campaign operatives are actively campaigning against them." ~ Sen. Ted CruzEven though this began breaking a few days ago, the hypocrisy can't be overlooked. No more so than the further acknowledgement of how America has foolishly installed into its highest office of the land a true coddler of our enemies and a despiser of our allies.
So much for not wanting to meet with Netanyahu because he didn't want to affect the outcome of the Israeli elections (we all knew that was a crock from the beginning!)...
Breitbart: Just days after the Obama White House accused House Speaker John Boehner of “breaking protocol” by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress, a team of up to five Obama campaign operatives has reportedly arrived in Israel to lead a campaign to defeat the Israeli Prime Minister in upcoming national elections scheduled for March 17.Related links: Obama operatives in Israel to defeat Netanyahu in upcoming elections
The anti-Netanyahu, left wing Israeli newspaper Haaretz reports a group called “One Voice,” reportedly funded by American donors, is paying for the Obama campaign team. That group is reportedly being led by Obama’s 2012 field director Jeremy Bird.
As Jerusalem Post columnist and putative Knesset candidate Caroline Glick reported on her Facebook page, “Obama won’t meet Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington when he addresses the Joint Houses of Congress in March because of Netanyahu’s visit’s proximity to the Israeli elections. And Obama, of course believes in protocol and propriety which is why he won’t get involved.” And yet, Glick adds, “He’s just sending his 2012 field campaign manager to Israel to run a campaign to defeat Netanyahu.”

"We don't want to interfere with Israel elections" says @WhiteHouse. But Jeremy Bird is in Israel making sure @netanyahu "pays a price".

Sen. Ted Cruz also responded this week to the news with a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry wondering if, in fact, U.S. taxpayer dollars are being used to undermine Israel’s election. Then ventured further into Obama's toxicity with an op-ed via Breitbart:
The Obama Administration’s actions towards Israel become more intolerable each day, carrying with their insults deeply damaging national security implications for our country.I think the evidence points to an unequivocal YES.
Earlier this week, Americans opened the newspapers to discover that the Obama campaign team has deployed operatives, including 2012 Field Director Jeremy Bird, to Tel Aviv to try to unseat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu through an organization that receives taxpayer grants from the U.S. Department of State.
This follows a long string of hostile behavior that has only escalated with time.
In The Atlantic, “unnamed senior administration officials” have called Mr. Netanyahu a “chicken****” and bragged that it was now “too late” for him to take action to prevent Iran from gaining nuclear weapons capability.
Last week, more anonymous sources vented to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz that “Netanyahu spat in our face,” and vowing “there will be a price” for the Prime Minister’s accepting House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to come address Congress on the subject of Iran’s nuclear program.
An Obama campaign foreign policy advisor, Daniel Kurtzer, suggested to the New York Times that the Israeli ambassador to the United States, Ron Dermer, should be “reprimanded or removed” for passing along the speaking invitation from Speaker Boehner.
And, let us not forget how eager the Obama Administration was to impose an unprecedented flight ban against Israel last year during its military operation against Hamas terrorists in Gaza.
At the time, I asked the simple question whether the Obama Administration was using the Federal Aviation Authority to launch an economic boycott against Israel. After their actions were questioned, they quickly lifted the ban.
Now, it is time for another simple question:
Has President Obama launched a political campaign against Prime Minister Netanyahu and his allies?
And if you think this political campaign ends with only Netanyahu, and not the entirety of the Jewish State, Israel, our ALLY, you're blindly mistaken...
