Yoo-hoo! Mr. President, Over Here

Think about this statement uttered by US President Barack Obama in last night's State of the Union 2012 address:

...we will advocate for those values that have served our own country so well. We will stand against violence and intimidation. We will stand for the rights and dignity of all human beings – men and women; Christians, Muslims, and Jews. We will support policies that lead to strong and stable democracies and open markets, because tyranny is no match for liberty.

And we will safeguard America’s own security against those who threaten our citizens, our friends, and our interests.

Well, consider this - here are the Middle East and North African countries and nearby ones the President mentioned:-

Egypt (Cairo)
Yemen (Sana’a)
Libya (Tripoli)

As for Israel, there was this:

Our ironclad commitment -- and I mean ironclad -- to Israel’s security has meant the closest military cooperation between our two countries in history.

That's the best he could do for a "friend", an "ally"? A democratic country that shares American interests? "Military cooperation" is the basis of the relationship?

No science?
Culture (see this)?

"Ironclad" sounds more threatening and ominous than anything else! I feel it is more like an iron grip Obama and his regime will exert on Israel,preventing her from acting as a sovereign state.

Ironclad? Liken it to a platinium fist. If this jerk gets reelected Israel will face a manifested tribulation as has never hertofore ocurred since the beggining of all known biblical history. And to add insult to injury he is flaunting it "in your face", as if it is a forgone conclusion. And it may very well be.... God help us all if it is! Did you happen to notice that particular person who beckons to his every call.... his subservient minion actually touched her master last night. Zipi thank God you live in Israel. You only experienced a psycho social tinglinging up you leg. Poor Hilliary she got a full dose. Zipi how would you like to look like her in 10 years. Your blessed Tzipi, and your beautiful, you should kiss the ground you stand on.
