Domino falling?

January 25, 2011

Major anti-government demonstrations have broken out in Egypt against the 80-something dictator, Hosni Mubarak.

I’m no fan of Mubarak, but the prospect of the Muslim Brotherhood possibly seizing power there does not fill me with joy.

Far from it.

The Obama campaign promised us a new era of intelligent diplomacy that would restore our standing in the world and our allies faith in us after the dark years of the BushChimpHitler and Darth Cheney regime. So far, we’ve humiliated the prime minister of our closest ally, dissed the premier of another, stabbed two allies in the back over missile defense after they stuck their necks out to support us, and interfered in the internal politics of another. And now the administration begins to reap what it has sown:

Anti-Obama rally in Jerusalem

For the first time in years, the nationalist camp will hold a large scale rally against United States policies vis-à-vis Israel.

The protest will be held in downtown Jerusalem, on Agron St. on Monday evening, and is being organized by the Residents Committees of Binyamin and Samaria, as well as the nationalist umbrella organization Mateh Maamatz, the Yesha Council of Jewish Communities, and Komemiyut.

Knesset Members and others representing various parties, including the Likud, will speak.

“Not since the days of [U.S. Secretary of State Henry] Kissinger has there been such a protest against American policies,” said MK Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh), chairman of the National Union party. “The pressure that Barack Hussein Obama is exerting against us to simply stop growing and stop living will not work.”

The Obama administration has made it clear that Israel must stop building of all types throughout Judea and Samaria (Yesha), as well as in parts of Israel’s capital city that were liberated during the Six Day War of 1967.

How’s that Hope and Change working these days?  Doh
