White House Telling Congressional Black Caucus Netanyahu Speech Is Racism Against Obama, So Don’t Attend…

Yes, finally someone seems to ‘get it’.   The current White House manipulative narrative around the Benjamin Netanyahu speech is entirely the result of Team Obama’s pride, ego and anger about the way Netanyahu was received during his May 24th 2011 speech:

Back in 2011 President Obama, ValJar, Denis McDonough et al. were furious at how well received Netanyahu’s speech was amid a bipartisan congress. Obama himself has never had such a warm reception and rousing applause. Yes, this four year grudge is a big part of the reason for the White House constructing an entire operation to discredit Netanyahu this time around….. The White House is so desperate they are now playing the race card against Netanyahu and Boehner.

Good insightful article from Commentary Magazine below:

netanyahu3(Via Commentary Magazine) After two weeks of watching the debate over his proposed plans to speak to a joint session of Congress on Iran sanctions next month become increasingly bitter, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may be thinking he has no choice but to give the speech. A “senior government official” told the Jerusalem Post today that the prime minister had no plans to back down and postpone the speech until after the Knesset elections later in March.

Apparently, Netanyahu thinks waiting until later in the spring to speak would be too late. With reports surfacing that the president has sought to persuade the Congressional Black Caucus to boycott his speech, the willingness of the administration sink so low as to play the race card against Israel illustrates that it no longer matters how right Netanyahu might be.

Though his message about the danger from Iran is one that Congress and the American public need to hear, what he and his advisors seem not to understand is that the politics of the controversy have outstripped its content.

The reports about the White House signaling the Black Caucus that the speech should be seen as a domestic political issue rather than one about a difference of opinion over foreign policy is particularly ominous.

It was bad enough that Democrats construed the decision to accept the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner as a partisan intrusion into an American policy dispute. But if African-American politicians and even ordinary citizens are being told that Netanyahu’s appearance at a joint session is motivated out of disrespect to the first black president of the United States rather than a belief that the administration’s opposition to more sanctions on Iran is bad policy, then the problem Israel is facing is far worse than even some of the prime minister’s critics had thought.

At this point, the informal movement to boycott Netanyahu’s appearance is gaining the sort of momentum that gives it a life of its own. Republicans and Netanyahu’s supporters both here and in Israel may think most congressional Democrats are bluffing and some might be. But even a partial boycott would undo any good that the speech might have done in the first place.

Netanyahu needs to recall that the reason his May 2011 speech to Congress was such a triumph was that the cheers and the dozens of standing ovations he received were bipartisan. It was a humiliation for Obama, who never before and never since has been given such a reception in the Congress, because the thunderous applause demonstrated that the pro-Israel coalition was genuinely bipartisan.

The cheers from both sides of the aisle were a sign that both congressional parties rejected Obama’s ambush of Netanyahu on that trip and backed the Israeli’s stand. Perhaps Netanyahu and his advisors believed they could replicate that triumph now when the stakes are even higher with the administration pursuing détente with Iran and seeking a deal that would allow it to become a nuclear threshold power. But with Democrats and blacks now perceiving the speech to be a partisan ploy, any chance of that is gone.  (well worth reading more)

    I sent an email to Congress, indicating my belief that Congress should vote on Iranian sanctions, before Netanyahu speaks. Voting for sanctions before Netanyahu speaks, takes Israel out of the equation. A vote after Netanyahu speaks, places Israel smack dab in the position of being culpable for the outcome of the American vote in the eyes of their enemy, Iran, and it would be a heavy burden for Netanyahu to bear, if the sanction vote failed.

    I think it behooves Congress to protect Netanyahu from fall out resulting from Obama’s bumbling, but we shall see.

    From the Fox daily internet newsletter:

    “Israeli officials are considering amending the format of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned address to the U.S. Congress next month to try to calm some of the partisan furor the Iran-focused speech has provoked. Netanyahu is due to address a joint session of Congress about Iran’s nuclear program on March 3, just two weeks before Israeli elections, following an invitation from John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the house. …Israeli officials are considering whether Netanyahu should speak to a closed-door session of Congress, rather than in a prime-time TV address, so as to drain some of the intensity from the event, a source said. Another option is for the prime minister to make his speech at the annual meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington the same week, rather than in Congress.”

That said, Iran as a country has every right to peaceful nuclear power, and there is no concrete proof that their current program is anything other than peaceful. Netanyahu is obsessed with preventing Tehran from going nuclear not because Iran poses an existential threat to Israel, but because Israel is intent on preserving its nuclear monopoly in the region.

            As for Hamas, they didn’t begin launching their rockets until July 7 (nearly a month after Israel’s offensive in Gaza and the West Bank began), shortly after an Israeli attack killed 6 of their members. Israel fired the first shot in the war, not Hamas.

And, in the beginning of the new state of Israel, Palestine was asked if they wanted a state and they declined and Israel let it go then there was a war that Palestine started so for you to pretend that Palestine is innocent is ridiculous. For you to ecact that Iran is about peaceful nuclear power is like putting hands over your eyes imo as they constantly police and beat and throw their own people in jail for no reason. They have gone over their borders in raids and attacked Iraq, Not in an all out war but as tribal attacks and this has been going on forever as they have become a backward people over the years.

                On the contrary, Israel has violated every single ceasefire they’ve ever signed with Hamas, including the one that ended last summer’s massacre in Gaza. Hamas, on the other hand, has offered Israel 70-year truces and observed the ceasefires until Israel attacked them or Palestinians repeatedly. Back in 2013, even the IDF admitted that Hamas policed other organizations in the Strip in order to keep the peace.

                I highly recommend you read the actual history of Palestine and Israel, not the convenient myth that Israel and its supporters have cooked up.First of all, Palestine was not asked if they wanted a state. The UN Partition Plan was foisted on the Palestinian people without any democratic input from the people themselves, and handed over a majority of their nation to refugees and colonial settlers. Whatever the tremendous suffering of the Jews in Europe, the UN had no legal or moral right to divide Palestine against the wishes of its indigenous inhabitants. When the plan was rejected for the insult it was, the founders of Israel seized on the moment to declare their state and seize Palestine by force. Because the Jewish State could not exist without an artificially-created Jewish majority, the Israeli military and Zionist militias/terrorist groups waged a campaign of ethnic cleansing to rid the land of as many Palestinians as they could. The surrounding Arab countries jumped into the fray to grab whatever territory they could- their rulers didn’t give a damn about the Palestinians.

                Iran is run by an unsavory and repressive group of people, no doubt about that, but that has nothing to do with the facts about their nuclear program. Like I said, there is no proof that Iran has resumed the quest for the Bomb, despite years of IAEA inspections and countless intelligence reports. Zero. This lack of evidence is why If Israel and the West wants to give Tehran a reason to produce nuclear weapons, however, all they need to do is keep up the sanctions, occasional sabotage, and all-too-frequent warmongering. Keep pushing them into a corner, and see if they don’t decide to whip up the ultimate defense.

                Iran hasn’t started a war in centuries, and the last time it went to war with another state was due to Saddam’s aggression. Unless the tribal attacks you’re referring to were directly initiated by Tehran, you can’t blame the Iranian government for them.

                A backward people? Have you read the statistics? Their government may propagate a reactionary version of Islam, but the Iranians themselves are some of the most well-educated, literate, and urbanized people in the region and the world.

Because I am sure you think I am some Neocon like the rest of these people on this blog and nothing could be further from the truth. I have looked at around ant through the entire issue. Did you ever stop to think about what it was like to be a Jew?????? Dispossessed whenever you went. And mostly out of jealousy because you weren’t a filthy pig and the bible said you could lend money and then kicked around because of it. All we talk about anymore are Muslims and Christians but the latent antiSemitism is still simmering in Europe and the USA as I can see here. and in the Middle East where they hate the Jews. Their stupid prophesy has really made a big deal out of it in the Eschatology of the Muslims. All the Jews must die because they are evil. Don’t give me all of the information in the Post. There are 27 parties over there now and the Knesset is barely holding together, meaning Israel is barely Jewish anymore. If they lose their land, they are dead. You would love that wouldn’t you? I am sure the writers of that yellow journalism would.

                  Do you think the holocaust was a joke or something? Don’t bother sending links to me. I know Jewish and Iraninan History. I don’t want to hear about how they go to school.

                  As often as possible. In order to better understand their arguments and avoid tilting at windmills, I make a point of reading Jewish and Israeli perspectives on these issues including those on the right and Zionist left. Much of it makes my stomach churn, particularly when it comes to their beliefs about Palestine and the Palestinians, but I don’t dismiss it outright.

                  I despise anti-Semitism (like I despise all forms of racism and bigotry) and I think the Holocaust was one of the gravest crimes in human history, a pitch black mark on the human record. Don’t mistake my opposition to Israel/Zionism for animosity or a lack of empathy towards Jews. As a religious-ethnic group, they’ve suffered greatly throughout history, and I fully recognize that suffering. The crimes and persecution they’ve suffered, however, do not justify the behavior of the State of Israel. The Holocaust and all the other sundry horrors of Jew-hatred do not give Israel free license to oppress an entire people and violently deprive them of their land, freedom, and dignity.

                  There are twelve Arab members of the Knesset, only three Arab parties, and one Jewish-Arab party. Typically, these parties barely make it past the parliamentary threshold in the first place, which is why they’ve formed a joint slate to achieve the new 3.25% minimum vote. They have never been invited to form a government, and that’s unlikely to change anytime soon given the rising tide of anti-Arab racism in Israeli society. All of the remaining parties are Jewish-only, and subscribe to various shades of Zionism. Whichever coalition wins this upcoming election, you can be damn sure the occupation and the apartheid system will continue. Both inside and outside of the Knesset, Jewish Israelis maintain overwhelming dominance over their fellow non-Jewish citizens,not to mention the residents of the West Bank and Gaza. The idea that Israel is on the verge of not losing its Jewishness and that Jews are about to lose all “their” land is patently false.

                  For someone who rightfully prides themselves on looking at all sides, you seem oddly unwilling to examine anything that might contradict your views. Yes, the Iranian regime is heinous. We agree on that, so you won’t get an argument from me there. What I do disagree with, however, are the sweeping generalizations about the Iranian people- who you continue to conflate with the government. Do you have anything to support your claims that they’re backwards drones who don’t understand freedom, other than anecdotal conversations on the Internet? After all, why would a state need to police and repress its them so heavily if it was confident they were all happy with the status quo? Why would Iranians students engage in street protests and Iranian workers go on strikes if they didn’t want more than what they have?

                  Like I said, Iran has every legal right to pursue peaceful, civilian nuclear power, whatever the vagaries of the government. I don’t believe that allowing them to do that counts as a reward for their behavior, because they’re going to repress people regardless of what happens with the negotiations. Unless the United States engages in a bloody war to overthrow the regime (which would likely be worse than Iraq, in terms of the aftermath) nothing it does is going to change that. The sanctions have punished the average Iranian most of all, and the ruling classes still have a secure grip on power.
                  By the way, if a decent human rights record is a prerequisite for an acceptable nuclear state, why doesn’t the US have a problem with Pakistan or Israel having the Bomb?

                  As far as I know, Hamas hasn’t carried out a suicide bombing in years, using kids or otherwise. They are still a brutal organization when they want to be, but fortunately they’ve stopped that barbarity. While there is no excuse for coercing children to participate in military operations or terrorist attacks, but does that crime eliminate the reality of what Israel is doing to the Palestinians? These aren’t just sob stories that people are making up to make Israel look bad. These are things that are actually happening on a daily basis, as they have been for decades.
                  If you’re going to use the treatment of children as a barometer for judging an entire nation, than it’s only fair to remember the fact that Israeli forces killed over 500 Palestinian children in the last attack on Gaza, and have murdered, wounded, abducted, and imprisoned dozens more in the months since.

                  You can even point your finger at God Almighty and the Bosom of Abraham going to Israel (Jacob) who stole the birthright instead of the reddish Esau (lol)

                  Really? I’m surprised. Judging by our conversation so far, I thought you were a fairly diehard fan of Israel and not particularly sympathetic to the Palestinian struggle. Why do you support it?

                  War is inherently political. I don’t support Hamas either, but I do support the facts. According to investigations by the UN, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and other bodies-as well as all eyewitness accounts- there is no evidence that Hamas (which is the name of the organization, not a person) used children or other civilians as human shields during the the last massacre in Gaza or in recent history. Hamas did store weapons in unoccupied homes and schools on a few occasions, but there’s no proof that they consciously exploited the presence of children or used them as terrorists. It’s a complete and utter myth used to whitewash/justify the indiscriminate use of force and regular targeting of civilians that characterize Israel at war or peace. The IDF, on the other and much bloodier hand, has compelled Palestinians (including children) to serve as human shields on a frequent basis. In 2005, the Israeli High Court banned the practice after it was discovered that the IDF had used it at least 1,200 times over the previous five years. Always dedicated to their reputation as “the most moral army in the world,” the IDF has chosen to disregard that ruling in the years since. If you don’t believe me, you can easily find the information online.

                  I don’t trust any country or any group with the Bomb, actually. I think nuclear weapons are beyond the pale and should be abolished outright. That’s not going to happen anytime soon, if ever, but that’s where I stand. As far as Iran goes, I trust them not to use their hypothetical Bomb because it would be absolutely suicidal. If they launched a nuclear attack on Israel, Israel (and most likely the US at the very least) would respond with overwhelming force, as they always do. Tehran would be obliterated. Say what you will about the Iranian regime, but it isn’t run by stupid people: joyless, humorless, and authoritarian people, yes, but not stupid ones. If they did develop nuclear weapons, the Iranians would have every reason to use them as a defensive deterrent, not as a first strike option.

                  You’re right, it is more complicated than that. For the sake of brevity, I’m focusing on the players that are most immediately relevant to the topic.

                  I’m an atheist, so that would be like me pointing the finger at Baal, Zeus, and Mother Goose.

                  Ghost – picking up where we left off. You do realize your name states your position don’t you? Anyway, whether you like Israel or not, they are our allies, not Iran and I refuse to call them what they call themselves now because I am going to be “arrogant” about it. They make me sick.

                  “Considering the heavy defeats suffered by Daesh and other terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria, we are certain these groups are nearing the end of their lives,” Suleimani was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency, using an Arabic acronym for IS.

                  His extremely rare published remarks came in a speech made Wednesday in his home province Kerman to mark the 36th anniversary of Iran’s Islamic revolution.

                  Suleimani also said Tehran’s regional influence was growing.

                  “Today we see signs of the Islamic revolution being exported throughout the region, from Bahrain to Iraq and from Syria to Yemen and North Africa,” he said.

                  “The arrogants and Zionists have admitted, more than before, to their own weakness and to the Islamic republic’s power, following their successive defeats,” he said.

                  How so? Debs died over twenty years before Israel was founded, so it’s impossible to know what his views would be with any certainty. Given his adamant opposition towards racism and militarism and his deep sense of solidarity with oppressed people, though, I doubt he’d be boosting for AIPAC.

                  I’m not sure what point you’re making with those quotes from Suleimani. Every state does what it can to win influence and power, particularly in a ever-shifting region like the modern Middle East and North Africa. Iran isn’t unique in that. Look at Turkey or Saudi Arabia, for example. Iran is intervening in Iraq and Syria because its client regimes in Baghdad and Damascus are threatened by ISIS (ironically in the case of Syria, since Assad helped create the monster in the first place) and we’re working with them because ISIS is our common enemy. Washington and Tehran aren’t going to become long-term allies, let alone friends, but our interests fall along the same lines right now.

        • The point isn’t necessarily the message. Whether you believe it or not Israel remains the US’s ONLY reliable ally in the Middle East.

          The PEOPLE of the US , the people’s house, have invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak to the people. And a bunch of anti-Semites and treasonous sympathizers with our enemies are stomping their feet and throwing a hissy fit.

            Israel benefits far more from the US-Israel relationship than the United States does, as demonstrated by the $3 billion we give them in military aid every year (despite them already having the most advanced and powerful military in the Middle East) and the jockeying we do to defend the occupation in the face of massive international opposition. Our knee-jerk support for Israel is not only morally bankrupt, but a detriment to our national security and long-term interests.

            Last I checked, John Boehner personally invited Bibi to fill the Capitol with even more hot air, not the American people or even the House of Representatives. No one put it to a vote or a referendum. If you’re implying that the Republicans that control the House represent the people, I have some magic beans I’d like to sell you.

            I suppose the American military brass mentioned in this article-http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/2/2/netanyahu-visit-concerns-american-generals.html- are also anti-Semites and treasonous sympathizers with our enemies, as are these Israeli politicians-http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/02/07/netanyahu-cancel-congress-speech_n_6635916.html- and these American Jews-http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/J-Street-petition-against-Netanyahus-Congress-speech-rallies-20000-signatures-390575-.

    Barry Whitemama has been known as a “pathological liar” since he was a teen in Hawaii.

    Here’s an eyewitness account: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy2K5SIuK2E

    Ms. Pope’s description of Barry’s habit of outrageous lying begins at 3:40 of the video. Her description of his homosexual & drug lifestyle during the 1970s is contained throughout.

    The great American scandal related to the two legged fraud in the Oval Office is that so few people who crossed his path before he became a public figure made the effort to come forward to warn their fellow citizens.

  25. That’s it, folks. Just keep selecting officials based on the color of their skin, and (sooner or later) you’ll learn the content of their character. We have a black president with a BGI agenda, a racist wife, and a black AG who refuses to prosecute black agitators.

    Sorry… it will take 50 years to undo the damage that this racist administration has done to America. Which is one reason I will NOT vote for Ben Carson under ANY circumstances. He might very well be a true conservative and be truly willing to hold blacks accountable for their own actions, but electing another black president will only embolden other BGI types. They’ve done enough damage already.

        And now we have President Obama and the Looking Glass. Making funny faces and sticking out his tongue. Lewis Carroll could not frame the situation any better himself. America is transforming, like the caterpillar. In to a disaster of unmitigated failure, IMO. The only question is how long we can stay afloat.

  28. Netanyahu’s speech will still do some good. The measure will consist of two things:
    1) How many Democrats attend and maintain proper courtesy to their guest;
    2) How severely the electorate reacts against this fatuous notion that the speech, simply because it’s disapproved by Obama, is ipso facto “racist.”

    It will stand as an indication of whether Congress is willing to reassert itself as a co-equal branch of the federal government.
