The Way Obama Punishes Apartheid Israel, I Feel Like Sinning

With one hand the hypocritical president condemns Israel, and with the other he signs a deal to supply it with arms.

Can somebody out there please volunteer to have a heart-to-heart with Barack Obama? Tell him to calm down! He shouldn’t make such a big deal over one racist remark by Benjamin Netanyahu. All the prime minister said, after all, was “the Arabs are heading in droves to the polling stations.” So what.

And please don’t tell our friend in the White House that the High Court of Justice approved the uprooting of Arabs at Umm al-Hiran in order to plant Jews there. If Obama finds out about that, the Jews could get blamed for putting him in a deep depression that could cost the world dearly.

And under no circumstances remind him of the name Naftali Bennett, the guy who compared the Palestinians to shrapnel in your backside. Bennett might start going around with a special bodyguard to protect his own backside. As we know, sensitive people imagine that the tough things that happen to other people are happening to them too. And it’s not easy to live with shrapnel in your rear.

And don’t dare tell Obama about Ayelet Shaked’s status upgrade. After all, everyone knows that our man in the White House is severely paranoid.

It seems Obama has decided that the best way to deal with the harsh things he hears coming out of Israel is hypocrisy. With one hand he condemns Israel and with the other he signs a deal to supply it with arms.

You've learned a pretty good lesson from the Zionists, Mr. President. The world remembers your obsession against the phrase “Arabs heading to the polls in droves,” but no one will notice the aircraft you’re supplying as punishment for the prime minister’s racist comments. With punishments like that, I feel like sinning.

Meanwhile, before the ink had dried on the "droves" warning, Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan, a graduate of the brotherhood of humankind known as Habayit Hayehudi, reported the establishment of an apartheid state. As expected, the Americans’ punishment was not long in coming — they blocked a decision to hold an international conference on making the Middle East a nuclear-weapons-free zone, so as not to embarrass Israel.

But hey, there is something new under the sun. The Zionists wanted a state so much they dreamed of the first Hebrew thief. It turns out this desire led them to terrible places, so much so they now have a thief and apartheid too.

Mabrouk, Theodor! If you will it, apartheid is no dream! True, the Zionists weren’t the ones to invent racial segregation, but to adopt this value is truly amazing. Such a sharp transformation from a persecuted people to a persecuting people — that’s hard to find in history.

Meanwhile, the knights of the left and center should note that while they’re still dancing to the Jewish-democratic tune, other music is playing in the background. Apartheid, friends! Keep on dancing in your air-conditioned living rooms. Ben-Dahan and his partners have taken over the town squares. By the time you come to your senses, you’ll be a stranger here too, in the climate of the old South Africa.

But the world, thank God, isn’t America. In South Africa at the time, the blacks comforted themselves by claiming that the world wasn’t Israel, which cooperated with apartheid. They relied on themselves and the enlightened world.

And so do the Palestinians. Today the leaders of Israeli apartheid are quaking with fear because of the assertiveness of one man, Jibril Rajoub, chairman of the Palestinian Football Association, who Israel could throw in prison anytime or detain at a checkpoint.

If Israel doesn’t stop abusing Palestinian athletes, tomorrow, with the help of God and good people, it will be suspended from FIFA. Who said apartheid isn’t good for the Palestinians?
