THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND

Obama Blames ISRAEL For High US Gas Prices

| April 3, 2012

The Obama administration is blaming Israel for the recent rise in global crude oil prices, according to a Sunday report in The World Tribune. The rise in fuel prices is deemed as harming the U.S. economy and has also hurt Obama in the polls as he seeks re-election in November.

It is obvious to even the casual observer how much disdain Obama has for Netanyahu and the state of Israel

The report cited a leading U.S. analyst, Robert Satloff, who returned from talks with Israeli officials.

Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, said, according to The World Tribune, that the Israeli leadership saw Washington as attributing the higher gas prices to “Israel’s posturing” on Iran.

“They think the Iranians should be held responsible for the higher gasoline prices,” Satloff was quoted as having said.

He added that the officials told him the Obama administration was staging a campaign to undermine Israel.

“I cannot underscore how deep and visceral the [Israeli] comments of the leaking that came out of Washington were,” Satloff said, noting Israel is alarmed by what officials determined were leaks by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama of purported Israeli preparations to attack Iran.

The Israeli concerns come in the wake of a report in Foreign Policy magazine last week, according to which Israel has purchased an airfield in Azerbaijan on Iran’s northern border, prompting the United States to watch very closely.

Journalist Mark Perry wrote that the Obama administration is monitoring Israel’s relations with Azerbaijan, particularly its military ties.

The Americans believe Israel may use the site as a springboard for an attack on Iran’s nuclear plants, or as a landing and refueling spot following one. The site could also be used for aircraft needed for search, rescue and recovery in the wake of an attack.

“We’re watching what Israel is doing in Azerbaijan. And we’re not happy about it,” an official told the Foreign Policy writer. Azeri president Ilham Aliyev later dismissed the speculation and said, “Azerbaijan’s territory will never be used to launch an attack against its neighbor, Iran.” source – Israel National News

  1. I knew this was coming! This is how America becomes one of the nations, from all the nations from the four corners of the earth that will attack Israel. These high gas prices are going to make almost all Americans, and perhaps even the elect, to proclaim their grievances about Israel and Jews in general, and blame them for everything.

    i ask that same question and it looks clear to me that that is what is happening. I will never turn on israel. I follow what my Lord has said that we are to support israel no matter what. Obama needs to go. I dont believe it is israels fault is why obamas not getting what he wants in the polls. Wake up obama we dont want cha.

    • Where in the scriptures did the Lord say that we support Israel no matter what?

      • p skoufalos says:

        isreal areGod’s people and those to that help them will stay under God’s favor those who opposes them will no longer be protected.Look at Isreals history and it is very clear.This country was founded on the principles put forth in the bible and has now turned it’s back on that beginning this coutry was build with God at it’s base,now it chooses to turn it’s back,that problem is that We have already had a warning in 9/11 which occur right on the edge of the property that the birth of this counrty took
        place.

  3. Jody says:

    Since when do “allies” tell the world what our friends’ defenses are? What their preparations are in case of attack? Obama is a traitor! He always needs a scapegoat to blame – never accepts responsibility for his own shortcomings. He’d rather start a war than admit he made a mistake. He’d rather sacrifice Israel than lose an election! He will have to answer when he stands before the Lord, but America has to answer now for the folly of believing in this fool’s promises and electing him.

      • Did Obama start the war in Afghanistan or Iraq? If he was a fool, he stopped the auto industry from going under. The GOP said let it go under. In today’s news auto sales are up the highest in recent years. No fool gets those results. According to the scriptures we all have to stand before the Lord and answer. “We have all sinned and come short of the glory of the Lord.”

    Third person hearsay ain’t worth the time effort or energy I just expended responding. Faux news is no news.

  5. jeff says:

    It’s to bad my car won’t run on the gas his administration puts out.

  6. Matthew says:

    With friends like Obozo who needs enemies

    • Your car may not have been on the road if the auto industry was allowed to fail. In essence you would have gotten parts for repairs. So give credit where credit is due. Thank Obama he made the auto industry survive. By the way did you gripe about gas prices when Bush was in office. I remember paying just about the same or more for gas during his term in office. Did you say then “It’s to (should be too) bad my car won’t run on the gas his administration puts out.

  7. My reasoning about the higher gas prices is that the oil companies want to out Obama. They see that raising gas prices can potentially out him that so they r keeping the pressure up. They know that if he gets his way the government subsidies will be removed and that they will have to pay their fair share of taxes which if he gets his way will remove the Bush Tax cuts. He is a threat to them. The fat cats do not want to pay up. That is the bottom line. It has nothing to do with Israel.

    • The GOP are like the line backers. They are blocking him from removing the government oil subsidies and Bush tax cuts. Are they really in favor of America or are they in favor of American big business?

    God says that He will bless those who bless israel, and He will curse those who curse her. James you seem to be on here to argue and to put people down on their comments. You find things wrong with everyone who comments on here. Its sad, if you love obozo so much then go talk to people on his website.

  9. Elizabeth what book chapter and verse in the bible does states “God says that He will bless those who bless Israel, and He will curse those who curse her?” As for putting people down, all I do is look for facts and respond with facts. This article of itself and most comments puts the President of the United States down.

  10. elizabeth says:

    Why are you asking me about scriptures? You seem to have all the answers. You should already know where it is, but I will apease you. It is Genesis Chapter 12 verses 1 thru 3. We do our fact finding our selves we do not claim to know it all, but we are not on here to argue with people and we dont find fault with others comments. You just come off when you reply as all knowing. Sorry but thats how i feel.

    • Elizabeth thanks 4 your response. The verses that you shared with me is God speaking to Abraham not Israel. Furthermore, if u read Genesis Ch 11 verses 27-31 you will see that Abraham with his father Terah and Sari his wife at that time lived in Ur of Chaldees, which is located on the Euphrates river, that is now Iraq. As you know Abraham visited the land of Canaan many times to trade. He later settled with Sarai in the land of Egypt. The children of Israel did not enter the land of Canaan before Exodus 6 verse 4, in which THEY — the Children of Israel –were strangers.

    By the way I want to ask you are you a born again believer and if you are how do you feel about humans having sex with animals? Well your friend obama signed the law to repeal a law against beastiality. Not only that but to imprison americans indefintly with out a fair hearing. Its called the NDAA law

  12. fga says:

    elizabeth u are 100% correct u didnt mention zechariah2:7-8 nehamiah 9:7,deuteronomy 14:2,,MATHEW15:24 just to mention a few any bible studing christian should not be blinded to the fact how important they r to god and us all PRAISE GOD IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST AMEN

    • Fga I read your scripture verses which are not on point in regard to what Elizabeth said. She said in her first post “God says that He will bless those who bless israel, sic” which prompted my responses. There is a vast difference between the Children of Israel — house of Israel, which some of your scripture verses do refer to and the land of Palestine now Israel through a UN vote of 33. I apologize to all of you for appearing to be an authority on this issue. I am not. But as far as misinformation, I find myself coming back at such posts because it is important that we all see the light thru truth. See the UN vote that was taken at this link http://jamescannings.com/United_Nations/DVD_Evidence/UN_Vote_on_Israel_in_Palestine/un_vote_on_israel_in_palestine.html

    Gods unconditional promise to abraham, confirmed by jesus christ included both grace and race: spiritual salvation and eternal life by grace through jesus christ,and national greatness and prosperity to the descendants of abraham.His descendants the progeny of jacob(isreal) have grown into great nations in these latter days.God promised david his throne would always exist and christ would ocuppy that throne when he returns.Since it must exist continually on earth the only extant throne that matches gods promise among all the modern nations resides in great britian.The 12 families of ancient isreal are today scattered in northwestern europe,the state of isreal and the english speaking nations of america and the british common wealth .Joseph and judah have historically been the dominate tribes.Though knowledge of israel identity is not essential to salvation, it nonetheless provides a much clearer understanding biblical prophecy.It no way implies racial superiority but on the contrary imposes greater resonsiblity. Gen 12:1-3, 13:14-16; 17:2-8, 24:60, 25:29-34 Romans 4:13 Gen 27:27-29, 35:9-13, 23-26,48:1-22, 49:1-33, Deuter 33:1-29, 2kings 17:18-24 2Sam7:8-16,Psalm89:19-37, jeremiah 33:14-26, 1 chron 5:2, Deuter 7:6-11, luke 12:48, romans 11:1-29

  14. You may add Romans chapter 11 to your list. God’s plan for Israel is far from being completed. By His grace we gentiles have opportunity to come to Him through the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. As of this moment, Israel stands as the “cut off” branches of the good olive tree but in the fullness of time they will be grafted back in. ” For I would not, brethern, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery lest ye be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in” (Romans 11:25)

  15. Elizabeth please see the below text of the NDAA especially, Section (e) which in plain English infers that the President does not have any authority to detain anyone if PRIOR law does not confer that authority.. So in essence if the authority to detain did not exist then the authority to detain does not exist.

    Also kindly state the law that repealed a law against bestiality.
