Yad Vashem is the Israeli Holocaust museum, and so far, the Obamessiah hasn't answered the question.
"Senator can you assure Israel that there will be no second Holocaust despite Iran's threat to wipe us off the map?" he asked.
Obama demurred, saying that it wasn't appropriate to answer the question there.
"This is Yad Vashem!" the journalist responded.
Obama said he would answer the question at a later press availability.
You may have heard there is little man named Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has vowed the destruction of Israel via nuclear weapons, in a tiny little powerless country called Iran. A man that wants to end all Christian and Jewish civilization. A man the Obamessiah said he would meet with unconditionally.
The leader of the most powerful nation on Earth cannot hesitate to answer an unequivocal "yes" to this question. This man has NO business in a job for which he is unqualified.
Scary. Very scary.
Oh, by the way, as much as we conservatives dislike Juan McCain, here was his response:
John McCain initiated the conversation about a second Holocaust, brining(sic) it up himself and saying he'll assure it won't happen. Barack Obama had to be asked, and he still couldn't bring himself to answer.Conservative voters, you CANNOT sit this one out! As much as we despise the idea of a RINO POTUS for the next four years, anything is better than this douchebag.
My question for the hesitation: was it because he doesn't think Israel deserves to survive (as any good-thinking closet mooslim should think), or is he afraid to stand up and defend our ally?
If either of these reasons is correct, it's just wrong. Very wrong.
UPDATE: Just noticed an interesting quote on Debbie Schlussel's site on this post:
God help us.
Before he got to Israel, don't ever, ever forget what he wrote in his book: From Audacity of Hope - 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'
So Bill Clinton was the first black president, the Obamessiah will be the first mooslim president.
