Bush Administration Continues Its Anti-Israel and Anti-Semitic Policy
Immediate Release. September 9, 2005 Just weeks after Israel was forced by the Bush administration to give up land that is Biblically, historically, and legally theirs in an effort to restart the “peace process” in the Israeli-“Palestinian” Arab conflict, the administration continues to fan the flames of its anti-Israel and anti-Semitic foreign policy. In the mindset of the Bush administration and its top policy advisors, human rights pertain to everyone except Jews.
In the international aid effort for the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the United States (US) has avoided any mention of Israeli participation. US State Department Spokesman Sean McCormack focused on Arab offers of assistance to the US in a briefing on September 6, 2005. Also, for the Katrina relief effort U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice thanked other donors earlier. Although not mentioning Israel, Secretary Rice cited offers of assistance from numerous nations that included France and China.
Though Israel was one of the first nations to offer to send military and civilian teams to New Orleans, Israel was asked to postpone sending aid until a later stage by the Bush administration which has highlighted offers of aid from Islamic governments as well as American Arab and Muslim groups reported World Tribune.com. on September 8, 2005.
Senior State Department officials made no mention of Israel's offer to help Katrina victims, in three briefings over the last four days.
State Department executive secretary Harry Thomas, gave the last briefing on September 7, 2005, and reported offers from Britain, Germany and Russia. However, the State Department issued a report that cited Israeli aid to Katrina victims late on September 7, 2005. The World Tribune.com. reported that the report said that Israel has sent tents, first aid kits and baby formula to the U.S. Also, the report said, “Russia, China, Spain and Israel sent planes loaded with meals-ready-to-eat (MRE's), relief supplies, tents, water purification units, kitchen units and medical supplies.”
Israel's immediate offer to help the hurricane victims was delayed by the Bush administration in fear that such a move would deter Arab and Islamic countries from offering assistance.
The World Tribune.com. reported that an official said, ”At one point, the administration signaled that it would accept Israeli help, but preferred that it be part of a mission organized by the American Jewish community. There appeared to (be) a problem with having the Israeli flag in a foreign rescue mission in the United States.”
Dr. Joel P. Rutkowski, president of the American Voice Institute of Public Policy said, “The Bush administration would condemn any nation in the world for making such a racist statement. It is outrageous and incomprehensible that the U.S. has treated an ally such as Israel like this when they are offering aid to American citizens that have had their lives destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.” He added, “The Bush Administration policy to resolve the Israeli-‘Palestinian' Arab conflict is nothing more than Anti-Semitism and ethnic cleansing of Jews from the land that is Biblically, historically, and legally theirs. The US should stop sending foreign aid to these racist, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, and anti-American nations so that when a “superpower” such as the US faces a natural catastrophe as Hurricane Katrina, it does not have to be so dependent on financial assistance from Arab and Islamic countries. Appeasement of the Islamic world, in hope that they will join the fight against Islamofascist terrorism, is fool hardly and only puts the security of Israel and the U.S. at risk, further destabilizing the Middle East region and will result in the deaths of innocent vicitms globally — all in an attempt for the hope of a false peace.”
President George W. Bush has said he is a Christian and reads his Bible daily, yet he must have overlooked Genesis12: 3; Joel 3: 2 and Joel 3:14:
And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision (judgment): for the day of the Lord is near in the vally of decision .
Joel 3: 14
In the Bible, the prophet Joel stressed the sovereign power of God over nature and nations and notes how God uses nature to get people's attention. This warning should be heeded by President Bush and he must stop his efforts to divide the land of Israel that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob has given to the Jewish people through His unconditional covenant with Abraham. For if he does not, Hurricane Katrina will be just the beginning of God's judgment upon this nation for President Bush's betrayal of the nation of Israel.
