Interview with National Review: Political Messiah in the Holy Land

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someoneShare on Google+

Caroline B. Glick is the deputy managing editor of the Jerusalem Post and the senior fellow for Middle East Affairs at the Center for Security Policy. Her book, Shackled Warrior, Israel and the Global Jihad was released earlier this year. She took questions from National Review Online editor Kathryn Lopez on Friday about Barack Obama's visit to the Mideast.

 

Kathryn Jean Lopez: Am I wrong in saying that Barack Obama did not impress Israel?

 

 

Caroline Glick: Israelis are very caught up with our local news right now. Foremost on our national agenda are the seven criminal probes being carried out against Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, the political maneuvering surrounding those investigations, and the expectation of new elections or some governmental shake-up in the wake of Olmert's likely indictment on fraud charges. Consequently, Obama's visit didn't evoke any deep-seated interest in Israel.

 

 

At the same time, he didn't make any serious mistakes during his visit so to the extent he made any impression, he made a positive one. There is trepidation in Israel about the statements he has made about Iran and the division of Jerusalem and his associations with anti-Semites like Rev. Jeremiah Wright. But the media wasn't given much opportunity to challenge him on these points and so the trepidation was not dispelled. But again, Israelis by and large just weren't that into him.

 

 

 

Lopez: What was the point of the trip there so far as you can tell?

 

 

Glick: The point of the trip was clearly to shore up support for Obama among American Jewish voters. It is hard to know whether he was successful in doing so or not, although he certainly didn't hurt himself among those who already support him.

 

 

His repeated assertions of his commitment to Israel's security were repeatedly contradicted by the policies he wishes to adopt if elected. On the one hand he opposes permitting Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, but on the other hand, he insists that the way to make this happen is to sit down and talk to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has made annihilating the Jewish state one of his main goals in office. He says he understands Israel's need to protect its citizens from terror attacks but then he says that Israel's interests are served by strengthening the Palestinian terror groups by extending Palestinian sovereignty from Gaza to the West Bank. Gaza is ruled by jihadists from Hamas who are bankrolled, trained and armed by Iran. How are Israel's interests served by importing jihadist control to the outskirts of Tel-Aviv and to Jerusalem?

 

 

Then again, like Israeli Jews, American Jews are not too caught up in details. He said he supports Israel and got his picture taken at Yad Vashem and the Wailing Wall wearing a kippa. So he probably succeeded in pulling more American Jews into his camp of supporters.

 

 

 

Lopez: How close did you get to the "messiah"?

 

 

Glick: I generally try to stay as far away as I possibly can from people who say they can make oceans recede. Our paths didn't cross. In fact, I managed to be out of the country on Wednesday.

 

 

 

Lopez: How did the Palestinians take to him?

 

 

Glick: They were certainly gratified that unlike Senator John McCain, Obama made the trip to Ramallah and had his picture taken with Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas against the backdrop of Yasser Arafat's photograph. It is hard though to know if Obama's trip changed the Palestinians' impression of him. It is already clear, and has been for months that the Palestinians, like the Arab world (minus Iraq) prefer Obama to McCain because they view him as sympathetic to their war against Israel and their hostility towards the U.S. and the rest of the West. But he was in Israel for such a short time that it is hard to say that his visit excited anyone.

 

 

 

Lopez: Does he remind you of anyone?

 

 

Glick: Obama acts like a European leader in his treatment of Israel. On the one hand, he professes this profound respect for Israel and the Jews, and goes on and on about how our security is important to him. On the other hand, he espouses policies that undermine Israeli security and threaten its survival, and demands that the Jewish state become the only state that turns its other cheek towards our enemies as they try to kill us. This is the same sort of message that we hear from all Europeans leaders. And it is tiresome and insulting.

 

 

Beyond that, Obama is in a unique situation because of the adulation he enjoys from the U.S. and Western media. The media is willing to ignore all of the substantive contradictions inherent in his policy pronouncements and to base their support for him on a quasi-religious faith. I don't remember this ever happening before in an American election — at least not to the same extent. It is an interesting sociological phenomenon that is worthy of academic research. On a political level, it makes debate very difficult since Obama is treated more as a symbol than a politician. And it is hard to debate a symbol.

 

 

 

Lopez: What the heck happened at the Wailing Wall?

 

 

Glick: That depends who you read. In Israel, the story was presented as "an ugly Israeli" story. People were rude and heckled him at the Wall, someone removed his note. Israelis are mean and rude to visitors, end of story.

 

 

In the U.S. blogosphere especially, the story was cast as angry Jews yelling at Obama for his desire to transfer sovereignty over parts of Israel's capital city to the Palestinians.

 

 

What is clear is that Obama wrote the following prayer that he placed in the Wall, "Lord, Protect my family and me. Forgive my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair. Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will."

 

 

This was supposed to be a private benediction, and it was extraordinarily improper for someone to take this prayer and sell it to the media. On the other hand, in the world of paparazzi, the exposure of the prayer was predictable, and Obama apparently constructed the prayer for public consumption. Like everything else about his visit, this was a carefully crafted statement, designed not to ruffle any many feathers. And like this prayer, there was nothing extraordinary about Obama's visit. As you would expect from a politician, he tried to be all things to all people. And he probably succeeded.

 

 

Lopez: Were there campaign signs there?

 

 

Glick: Apparently there were a few, but the Israeli media didn't pay much attention. Again, we're basically scope-locked on the corruption investigations of the prime minister.

 

 

Lopez: Did he get his Jerusalem answer wrong?

 

 

Glick: Israelis don't support making any concessions on our sovereignty over Jerusalem and so his answer won him no support among most Israelis. But again, no one challenged him much on the issue and no one really cared that deeply about what he thinks about much of anything other than Iran.

 

 

Lopez: What is Israel looking for in an American president?

 

 

Glick: We're looking for someone whose policies reflect an understanding of the real security threats facing Israel and the United States. We're looking for a president who understands that Israel is the frontline state in the global jihad and as a consequence, it has to have support as it defends itself and acts as the frontline of the U.S. defense perimeter. That is, we're looking for a president who understands that Israel is a valuable ally and that America's national security is directly linked to Israel's because our enemies are the same. It is this sort of president that will understand that standing with Israel and strengthening the alliance isn't a matter of platitudes designed to get Jewish voter support and disposed of when constructing real policy, but, rather, a real commitment to U.S. and Israeli security needs.

 

 

Bush projected this understanding in the 2004 election which is why some 75 percent of Israelis enthusiastically supported his reelection.

 

 

Lopez: Does Obama have it?

 

 

Glick: No, Obama doesn't have it. His statements about Iraq being a "diversion" alone are proof that he fundamentally refuses to acknowledge that there is a global jihad raging, that Israel is a frontline state in the jihad and that the U.S. cannot allow jihadists to gain control of any territory and particularly territory as strategically vital as Iraq or Jerusalem and the West Bank.

 

 

Obama is a quintessential leftist who thinks that war can be wished away by blaming the U.S. for its enemies' hatred and malicious designs. This is the type of person who will push very hard not only for America to stand down from the war and ask the Iranians for forgiveness while enabling them to get the bomb, but will blame Israel for the Arab world's refusal to accept its right to exist.

 

 

 

Lopez: What's the best-case President Obama scenario from where you sit? Worst-case?

 

 

Glick: The best-case scenario is that Obama will be willing to learn from the Bush administration's mistakes in attempting to appease the Palestinians, the Iranians, and the North Koreans. Such an Obama administration would recognize that its liberal formulations are fundamentally misguided and abandon them in favor of reality-based policies. Given Obama's stubborn refusal to admit he was wrong about the surge and his insistence that he can strike a deal with Ahmadinejad, the likelihood of this happening is about zero.

 

 

The worst-case scenario is that Obama actually bases his foreign policy on his ideological beliefs. If he does that, he will leave Iraq prematurely and so enable Iran's effective takeover of the country through its Shiite proxies.

 

 

He will botch up Afghanistan and end up enabling an open jihadist takeover of nuclear-armed Pakistan.

 

 

He will negotiate with Ahmadinejad, giving Iran the time and political cover to complete its nuclear program and test its nuclear weapon, and he will then refuse to assist Israel in attacking the Iranian nuclear program thus escalating the threat of an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel and Iranian nuclear blackmail of the Middle East and Europe.

 

 

He will press Israel to curtail its counter-terror activities towards the Palestinians and so enable a Hamas-Iranian takeover of the West Bank. This in turn will precipitate the expansion of the missile war against Israel from Gaza to the West Bank and so place Israel's major urban centers and its international airport at risk.

 

 

While he will simply roll over a left-leaning Israeli government like the current one while protesting his enduring commitment to Israel's security, if a Likud-led government is installed during his tenure and tries to extricate Israel from the failed "land-for-peace," policy paradigm while gearing up to attack Iran's nuclear facilities, he will treat the government with hostility and strengthen the position of Israel's enemies in his administration. This in turn will weaken the social and political standing of American Jews who will find themselves under unprecedented and unjustified suspicion of disloyalty due to their support for Israel.

 

 

As in all things, the reality of an Obama presidency is difficult to predict and may well fall somewhere between these two extremes.

    Ms. Glick’s intelligence is on display in this interview slong with her bellicosity. She is, however, quite wrong in a number of respects.
    She talks as if there were a global jihad movement that is monolithic. This is demonstrably untrue.
    This assumption, that there is a global conflict with just two sides, leads her to assume that Israel and the US have fundamentally common interests. In fact, once the Soviet Union collapsed, there was no particular reason for the US to involve itself militarily in the Old World, let alone with Israel, whose remaining significance is a matter of sentiment or US domestic politics (Yes, Virginia, there is a Lobby).
    Obama, unfortunately, is just as much an internationalist and a democratic Messianist as is Bush; he just dresses it up in leftish dress.
    We’d be much better off with a policy of reducing foreign entanglements and a continental defense. Israel would be better off taking care of itself.

    If Senator Obama becomes the next President, relations between Israel and the US could be more strained. An Obama Administration would try a so-called evenhanded approach to resolving the Arab-Israeli Conflict. Of course, Israel will be pressured to give up more territory for false peace with jihadists. Eventually, Israel will attack Iranian nuclear sites, and a regional Mid-East war will erupt. Israel will be blamed for a run-up in oil prices, and Jews worldwide could be targeted. Fortunately, there is still time for American voters to elect Senator John McCain to the Presidency.

    Caroline,
    I loved your latest blog! Barack Obama is actually at the vanguard of what Joel Rosenberg calls the “new evil” rising against Israel and the West. If elected president, he will work to neutralize America both politically and militarily. Along with that, Obama will extinguish our religious and civil liberties and has repeatedly stated that he will dismantle the U.S. military in order to pay for his new $845 billion dollar U.N. Global Poverty act which just passed the Senate. May God deliver America and Israel from this evil man.
    Take Care,
    Jay

    Caroline,
    The headline in Joel Rosenberg’s most recent blog says it all:
    Thursday, July 24, 2008
    OBAMA BACKS AWAY FROM PLEDGE FOR AN “UNDIVIDED” JERUSALEM: Calls his own AIPAC speech a “mistake”
    Also, Rosenberg gave a sobering analysis of Obama’s lack of foreign policy experience on CNN’s Glenn Beck show recently:
    Now Senator Obama, he`s got a big problem. First of all, he`s got no military experience. He`s got very little Washington experience. He doesn`t know the world leaders, doesn`t know our military leaders. So that`s a challenge. But more importantly even that than that, his first foreign policy move, Senator Obama`s, upon entering the Oval Office next January if he`s elected, he said he will surrender in Iraq. He will pull U.S. forces out of the Middle East as rapidly as possible. This is not exactly going to send a message to make Iran fear us, much less stop building or buying or stealing nuclear weapons. That`s the big danger on his part.
    How does one respond to such utter nonsense? Moreover, how does one deal with such blindness to evil? To misunderstand the nature of evil is to risk being blindsided by it. America was blinded by Hitler in the 1930s because we didn’t understand the evil he posed. We were blindsided by Japan at Pearl Harbor. We were blindsided on 9/11. I fear we may be blindsided by Iran as well.

    We always get burned when we put our trust in U.S. leaders for our future and so we learn to look elsewhere for our help.
    Prime Minister Ehud Olmert praised security forces on Sunday for the Hebron operation that killed Shihab Na’atsha, a senior Hamas terrorist involved in February’s suicide bombing in Dimona.
    Hamas vowed to avenge Na’atsha’s death, threatening retaliation “at the time and place we choose.”
    In a statement released by the group, it said the response would be both “swift and painful.”
    P.M Olmert responded that Israel did not have that luxury and would first need to get permission from Washington for any almost swift and nearly painful responses,conceding that these requests were no longer being given a green light by Plantation owners in Washington as they did not want to endanger their successful agenda of severely weakening and damaging the Jewish nation by their fraudulent peace plan also know as Operation Trojan Horse.
    During a security briefing to the cabinet, Diskin said that the increasing involvement of east Jerusalem residents in terror attacks was worrying and that a deterrence was needed sometime in the next decade.A deterrence that would look good enough to fool the Israeli public that they were really doing something when they were really doing nothing.
    He urged the cabinet to press legal authorities to speed up the decision on whether to demolish terrorists’ east Jerusalem homes and to cancel the attackers’ families social benefits as TV camera’s focused on him.
    Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz said that the issues of demolishing and sealing terrorists’ homes, as well as expelling attackers’ families were now on the agenda for more talks and less action to make the people of Israel feel that their leaders were doing something productive as talking tough was the only thing the Plantation owners in Washington permit us to do.
    The fact that the citizenslaves of Israel are easliy decieved and have short memories makes our job much easier to do, and soon the issue of demolotion will be forgotten as was the supposed arrest of Muslim brotherhood leader Sheikh Saleh of Nazareth for incitement on the Temple Mount over a year ago.
    We have proven we can easily get away with anything as the media is our’s and they know their lines,D.M. Barak reminded the Minister’s.
    We put on a good show and keep the people away from the real issues of our slave status under Washingtons thumb.
    They congratulated P.M. Olmert for his enduring stamina against a sea of corruption charges and how just one dead Hamas killer in Hevron was enough to buy him positive acclaim from the sheeple of Israel headed for slaughter.
    They all exclaimed their surprise at how far their empty words and lies had propelled them to the highest seat of power and money in the country as they toasted the statue of beelzebub their god.

    Steve ;
    “I don’t know why anyone believes Bush will stumble into a confrontation with Iran when this is obviously the last thing he wants before leaving office.”
    Steve,
    You don’t think God wants to thank Bush personally for his Road Map ? Genesis 12:3
    God is going to make him drink of the cup whether he wants to or not. That’s in Jeremiah !
    All these writers like Tobin and Belman and Glick .
    They finally sound the warning after the Barn has been burned down.
    How much more effective could these morons have been if they had LISTENED and gotten it right as we warned them many many moons ago ?
    It’s very late now and there will be a price to pay for their stupid idolatry of Bush and America and leading so many millions into a false hope and trusting in lies.
    Someone’s going to pay and the blood is not on my hands !

    I like to think I have a good understanding of world affairs, but your articles always impresse me with how little I know about the ME. Keep up the work. Sounds like you would have made as good Marine from your bio.

    Hear O Israel our God is one God! Will Elohim not protect you from those who seek to destroy you? Did He not deliver you from the hand of the Egyptians and allow your descendants to enter the land promised to Abraham? Your salvation is near; for your God will bring deliverance to those who put their trutst in Him. You are a divine nation under divine protection destined to fulfill God’s greatest display of his power among all the nations of the world. Blessed is the nation whose God is their Lord. You must return to your foundation and seek the Lord while he is near! Don’t fear neither be dismayed. Keep your faith up not down. Look to the Heavens not to the earth; for the Lord has declared His Word among the heathen. The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” Neither weapons nor policies will protect you. God is your tower and refuge! The true Messiah is coming in the clouds, not the dust.
    Your Friend and Ally,
    Joseph

    Caroline,
    First of all, I am a Christian. I am sure you have heard of us, LOL. I do not believe any true Christian can agree to Israel giving land for peace is anything other than demonic. There will not be peace, only the worlds relentless search dominance. China, Russia, the Euro Union, and the puppy dog USA wanting everyone just to get along, lets do a little business here mentality. Obama is a fish so far to the left, he does not even realize he is wet. I cannot believe we are to the point that the US can be so fooled by a man. Oh, wait, yes I can. We elected Carter, Clinton and now Obama. George Bush has caved in. The world has zero leadership. ZERO. Israel is on its own, except for God and his covenant with Abraham. A detail Russia and the Arab states should revisit. Not to mention the EU and China. Also the other 180 plus nations of the United Nations agains Israel remaining a nation.
    By the way, I do believe the Bible does mention all the nations of the world will gather against Israel. Daniel was told to seal up the book. It was not for him to know. It would be revealed at the end times. Like now.
    I do not know what you think is going to happen, but when the Third Temple deal is cut, leave town. It will happen, not right away, but it is on the way. The EU is ready, the US becomes of little effect. Watch out for Russia, they are ready to invade, and anxious. This will take a few years, but you will see the invasion of Israel. Maybe after Israel goes after Iran or Syria, or both. Well, I am sure you have heard this senario before. I have studied these events for the past 45 years. I am amazed how the clock it ticking down, we are close to closing time,
    Israel has always been God’s time clock for mankind. People need to understand this simple point. God is a covenant God, He is not a man. He states the future, it will come to pass. Wake up, understand the times. Obama is just another pretender. We pray for Israel, and for the peace of Jerusalem.
    George
