Mike Huckabee: 'President Obama has betrayed Israel'


President Obama’s speech today is not going over well at all among the pro-Israel crowd.

Below is Mike Huckabee's statement. He has some harsh words for the President but can you blame him?

"President Obama has betrayed Israel and made a grievous mistake by suggesting borders of Israel go back to pre-1967 borders. This is an outrage to peace, sovereignty of Israel, and a stable Middle East. The nation of Israel was attacked in 1967 from all sides with a determination to annihilate her. 

Israel needs more security, not less. The Palestinians have steadfastly refused to acknowledge Israel's right to exist, despite long standing international law to the contrary.

The President needs to worry less about the borders of Israel and start securing the borders of the United States."

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

I agree with Gov. Huckabee completely! I am ashamed of this president and the things he has said on behalf of this country. Israel has always been an ally of the U.S. How dare he speak on our behalf to demean that staunch ally?
I am appalled, but see the return of the Lord at hand.

President has deffinately betrayed the United States and the Evangelical Christians at the same time. Hopefully the Jews in the U.S. who have supported Obama will wake up and realize that Obama is NOT Israel's friend.

Dear Mr President,
Please go back and look again. You are Wrong, which is ok as long as you correct your Wrong. Not disrepect to you intended. But Israel is a nation & Palestinians does not acknowledge that. Let them be the nation they are & protect our commitment to them & Honor that commitment & you honor God, You dishonor that commitment & YOU dishonor God & all of us here in the USA that feels very very very strongly about them. WHO are You (meaning this goverment) to say they have to give up what they have fought for & died for. I DON"T THINK SO. We need to honor our commitment to them or we might as well be their enemy to. We are one of the few that aren't an enemy yet. Seems like we are getting ready to jump the boad & join the crowd. THAT WILL BE A MISTAKE.
Please reconsider your (so Called WE-USA) Decision. Thank you & PRAYER MR PRESIDENT, See what our LORD has to say about all this!

G-d bless Mike Huckabee for speaking out about this horrible evil that Obama has done. Just when we thought it couldn't get any worse! He has slapped every real ally we have in the face and now has put Israel in a very dangerous position. Please, all those who love freedom, speak up and pray as you never have before for Israel in her time of crisis. This man cares nothing about America and will not stop till he brings her to her knees (probably before the false god allah). It's way past time for all of us to wake up and do all we can to get this jerk out of office!

Huckabee is either ignorant or lying. The PLO and Israel recognized each other in 1993. See the Jewish Virtual Library, http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Peace/recogn.html

Why is the U.S. meddling in this conflict? Israel doesn't need the president's permission to protect herself from her enemies.

President Obama is either a Muslim or he simply hasn't picked up his bibe in a very very long time.

Huckabee says, "The Palestinians have steadfastly refused to acknowledge Israel's right to exist". This is wrong. This is the Jewish Virtual Library article on Israel-PLO Recognition. -- http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Peace/recogn.html --

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

Well said Huck.

In a Newsmax interview, here's what Alan Dershowitz had to say: “The tragedy is during the Obama administration the prospect of peace has gone further away than it’s ever been in recent years since Israel offered to give the Palestinians a state . . . He’s been ham-handed in how he has dealt with the issue of negotiations and the result is we’re further away than ever before from negotiated peace and that’s in large part the fault of President Obama and I think that’s the terrible tragedy of how he’s handled this process.”

He also said: “I think also the speech was not particularly good for the United States,” he said. “It set us out in a way that showed naiveté and created a situation where neither side will be encouraged to move toward peace by what the president said. So I think on balance it was a net loss rather than a net gain."

Once again, Obama has showed thAT he's NOT a friend of Israel . . . but that he IS a friend of Islam.

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

How could Obama say and do such a thing? Israel is our ally! God said, whoever blesses Israel, I will bless. Whoever curses Israel, I will curse. America's future depends on our relationship with Israel!
Yes,Governor Huckabee, our president should be more interested in our borders and stop telling other countries what to do! It's a disgrace how he has treated Gov. Brewer and other border states. God help and Bless America!
Wake up America!
PRAY & VOTE in 2012

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

Obama is first class traitor not only to Israel but to his own country, the United States. In my opinion he should be impeached for his traitorous acts. If he is exerting his power now when he is facing reelection, think how bold he would be if he wins a second term. It makes me shudder.

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

I have read three mentions of the US borders in connection with this speech. Interesting, in that on the Holocaust memorial this week, protestors used a sign "Tejas". The side commentator noted that this was not accidental. Also on pbs this week on a Mexican history special, the same reference. In WWII, Gemany offered to 'give' Mexico Arizona, NM, and 'Tejas' if Mexico helped them win. Something about the attitude that that area was 'stolen' by the US in one of the wars with Mexico. Lord, put up a standard, a hedge of protection. Frustrate the
evil counselors. Turn, turn, turn. Turn it back on their heads. Amen

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

The USA, the UK, Russia, Germany, Turkey, have always oppressed Jews and Arabs or even pursued them to death. World powers like to play this game: they involve small nations in their great strategic schemes and then they abandon their "allies" when their interests change or when they can't honour their commitments. Same happened to South Vietnam, Cambodia and Iraq. Peace in the Holy Land should be settled without foreign intervention. Western Christians should be watch that rights of our brothers Christian Arab Palestinians be preserved and they be protected from Islamic extremism. Palestinian Samaritans should be protected, too, since they are an endangered minority but also a link to Old and New Testament.

Huckabee is incorrect. The PLO nd Israel recognized each olther in 1993. See this article at the Jewish Virtual Lbrary, http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Peace/recogn.html

# RE: Mike Huckabee: "President Obama has betrayed Israel"

I fully agree with Mike Huckabee that this President has betrayed the people of Israel. When Obama spoke on behalf of our nation as if speaking for us, I got disgusted and wanted to shout out that "This President does not represent my sentiments!" He, his administration and those who support the demise of the Jewish state are solely responsible for what happens to the Jewish people if Israel's borders are pushed back to the pre-1967 status. God's judgments are righteous and just.

If Mike could have convinced the American people he could do a better job he would be running instead sitting on the sidelines criticizing.Has he figured out where the POTUS was born yet?

# RE: Mike Huckabee: 'President Obama has betrayed Israel'

On the contrary, it is Mike Huckabee and most others in Congress who have betrayed the US by putting Israel rather than their own country first to ensure they have campaign funds. Their 25+ ovations to the Israeli PM reveals where their allegiance lies. Wake up Christians, open your eyes to the New Testament message! To far too many, Israel has become a snare, even an idol.
