Not just for the birds
Isn’t it just one hell of a coincidence that Israel-Firster Eric Cantor (Likud, Virginia), is engineering a campaign to shut down the US government over the issue of Obama Care while at the same time he runs off to Israel every fifteen minutes? Yes, and Israel has truly socialized medicine. But he’s got no problem with that, nor does he have a problem with Americans dying in wars for Israel.
Remember this little gem from Cantor’s office? It’s not even a full year old yet.
“Eric stressed that the new Republican majority will serve as a check on the Administration and what has been, up until this point, one party rule in Washington,” read a statement from Cantor’s office on the one-on-one meeting. “He made clear that the Republican majority understands the special relationship between Israel and the United States, and that the security of each nation is reliant upon the other.”
Then less than a year after promising to commit the Republican Party to working for Israel against a twice-democratically elected president, Cantor then runs of to Israel with over 30 other Republicans willing to sell out to Israel.
Against a backdrop of Obama’s clearly not wanting a war with Iran and instead trying (meekly) to establish some sort of normal communication with that country, combined with Obama’s (rather ridiculous and meagre) attempts to get Netanyahu to pretend to be interested in peace with the Palestinians while at the same time the Syrian situation is something AIPAC and the loonies like Cantor want the US to escalate into something that could lead to world war, against all of this, Israel-Firster Cantor goes to Israel and does everything he can to pretty much fuck up everything on Israel’s behalf.
Meeting with Peres:
“Cantor opened the meeting by telling President Peres that the delegation had come to Israel to show the strength of American support for Israel and express the support of congress for Israel’s position.”
On the Palestinians we get overt racism and contempt:
“US Rep. Eric Cantor, the House Majority Leader, said while leading a trip of 28 congressmen to Israel that he doesn’t envision progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict until there is a Palestinian “cultural mind-shift.”
And just to make sure that Cantor’s racism is clear he added:
“Regarding Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement on Monday that the US views all Israeli communities located beyond the pre-1967 lines as “illegitimate,” Cantor said the “discussion of territory, lines, towns and settlements is predicated upon the Palestinians first agreeing” to Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.”
And of course Cantor went ape-shit over Obama’s phone call with Rouhani. Read this shit and laugh.
““I am concerned that President Obama did not press Iranian President Rouhani to halt Iran’s ongoing support for radical Islamic terrorism, its repeated violations of U.N. and IAEA resolutions, and its support of Bashar Assad’s war against the Syrian people. These topics were not publicly addressed by the President today, but require his urgent attention. Iran’s government remains — in spite of President Rouhani’s rhetoric — a brutal, repressive theocracy.”
So Cantor wants Obama to support al-Qa’ida crazies in Syria, but Iran is a bad boy for supporting “radical Islamic terrorism”? What bullshit. What he means is “Iran must stop supporting Hizbullah because they have shown that they can kick Israeli ass.”
And Israeli ass is all he cares about. If you are an American, he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about yours.
What’s going on is no coincidence folks. It’s an Israeli coup against the United States.
