Romney: Obama worse than even I expected
Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by Barack Obama’s policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign.
Washington Times

How money warps US foreign policy
Peter Beinart: The key divide on America’s role in the world is no longer between Democrats and Republicans. It’s between elites and everyone else.
The Atlantic

The presidency is breaking Obama even as Obama has broken the nation
Peter Wehner: It may be that Mr. Obama was drawn to the job not for the right reasons but because he viewed the presidency as a new mountain to climb, a prize to win, as a way to feed his unusually large ego (even for a politician). It may also be that Mr. Obama, with his presidency crumbling, is like a petulant child who wants to pick up his marbles and leave.

Why Obama is driving Jews from the Democratic Party
Michael Goodwin: A  friend who is conservative and  Jewish asks a question: “Given  Obama’s hostile treatment of  Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?”  By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.”  Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened.
New York Post
What is UNRWA Doing in Gaza?
Rabbi Dov Fischer: How does it make sense? And American taxpayers would go through the roof and under the tunnels of Hamas Gaza if they had a clue where their taxes were going

UK: Removing kosher food from shelves is giving in to hatred
Sainsbury’s action may have been banal, but it is part of a normalisation of anti-Semitism

Gaza: The road not yet taken
Irwin Cotler: Hamas is a unique – and evil – manifestation of genocidal anti-Semitism.

The end of an era?
Victor Sharpe: Is the US-Israel alliance and special relationship coming to an abrupt end thanks to the Islamophile American president? (ED:  We hope it is not so much an end as a pause until after 2016, when the White House will once again, we hope, be occupied by a pro-American - and pro-Israel - president.)
Family Security Matters

UN condemns Israel, US for not sharing Iron Dome with Hamas
The United Nations slammed Israel for possibly committing war crimes in its fight against Hamas — and then backed that accusation by suggesting the Jewish nation ought to be sharing its Iron Dome defensive technology with the very terror group it’s fighting.
Washington Times | Breitbart
A Light unto the nations
David Solway: Tikkun Olam, the mandate to repair a broken world, is a lovely theological notion, but it should not come at the expense of sacrificing one’s own civilians, soldiers and children to a bloodthirsty adversary, a decadent commentariat and a hopelessly corrupt United Nations.  Isaiah may have been right, but a light has at least two properties: it casts a glow, and it can be extinguished.
PJ Media

Israel, what are you doing?
Stan Goodenough: You pipe electricity to Gaza, drop leaflets over your intended targets to give your enemy time to escape and live to fight another day, put your own soldiers lives at risk rather than endanger the lives of Israel-hating Gazans.  You send medical and humanitarian aid through your crossings into Gaza ... You refrain from killing the men leading Hamas.  For some unfathomable reason, Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh and Khaled Mashaal are still breathing, together with their top tier of terrorism directors and propagators.  You need to declare war on Hamas to destroy them.  And set to it.
Jerusalem Watchman

The West must face the evil that has revealed itself in the Iraq genocide
Bishop Michael Nazir-Ali: A beautiful mosaic of ancient religions, cultures and languages in the Middle East is being systematically destroyed. Until now, the world has watched mutely.

Israeli science website: Obama birth certificate forged
Israel Science and Technology, the national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel, says the publication “of such a blatantly fake document about something so basic as the birthplace of Mr. Obama, should raise great concern about the suitability of the person who is holding the reigns on the most powerful country of the World.”

Was Barack Obama a foreign exchange student?

A former classmate has added a tantalizing question to the mysteries surrounding Barack Obama's college years. Perhaps the GOP nominee, whose tax records are demanded, should call the president's bluff. Not many students whose grades supposedly were good enough to get into Harvard Law School can say that 425 of their classmates taken randomly don't remember a single thing about him or his even being there. But Barack Obama, Columbia University class of '83, can.

Obama’s college classmate: The Obama scandal is at Columbia

Wayne Allyn Root:
I am Barack Obama’s classmate at Columbia University, Class of ’83. And I smell something rotten. (ED: This is a must-read. Mr. Root echoes everything we had already told you: the person known as Barack Obama is not a US citizen, much less natural-born. And that's not his name either. Mr. Root says - and we agree - that there is an imposter in the White House.)
The Blaze

A summary of some of Mr. Root's charges against "Obama":

* He rarely ever attended class at Columbia.
* His grades there do not suggest he could get into Harvard Law School
* He appears to have attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student.
* He never paid for either college or Harvard Law School because of foreign aid and scholarships
* His legal name is still Barry Soetoro.

* His citizenship appears to still be Indonesian. There is no evidence that his mother ever changed him back to being a US citizen.


Is there an imposter in the White House?

There is something very wrong when the sitting president refuses to divulge huge pieces of information about his background. What is he hiding?
Forbes

Was communist mentor intimate with Obama's mother?

Did Obama build his political career on a fairy tale that his father was a Kenyan who grew up herding goats? Was Obama’s goal in writing his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” to misdirect Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation? Was Frank Marshall Davis the [pseudo] president’s biological father, not the Kenyan Barack Obama? (ED: Yes, yes and yes!)
