Obama Shames Americans at the UN

"I find it shameful that in nearly all the universities of Europe, Palestinian students sponsor and nurture anti-Semitism."
Oriana Fallaci (1929-2006)

Today, as dirty, murderous, Palestinian terrorists burned American flags in Ramallah and New York City was held tightly in the clenches of the UN General Assembly meetings, our President Barack Hussein Obama gave an arrogant, condescending speech more designed for voters' ears than those of diplomats.

Not even a peep from Obama as our flags burned.

Nobody was happy, not even head Palestinian Abbas who should be happiest of all as Obama prepares to stick the knife in American ally Israel. The Israeli delegation was notably absent.

With grinning supplication to Palestinian leaders while feebly reassuring Israeli leaders he won't backslide on his promise to veto the Palestinian bid for statehood, this President has been fundraising more than job-creating while in New York on the taxpayers' dime.

I've never been ashamed of this country. I love it too much and my forefathers have shed too much blood for America and her flag.

But today I was ashamed for this country because today we have a President that we elected who simply isn't up to the task. Obama cannot stand up for America when we need him to; he can't stop criticizing and condemning America when he's on foreign soil and perhaps most important of all, it doesn't seem that he loves this country which has given him so much.

As Michelle Obama said (I never imagined I would think much less say anything close to her nasty sentiment), I say now, "Today, for the first time in my adult life, I am ashamed for my country."

We need a President who can speak authoritatively, one who can really lead and one who possesses integrity. Obama can do neither of the first two things and possesses none of the latter. And now the world knows it.

"It simply cannot be disputed that for decades the Palestinian leadership was more interested in there not being a Jewish state than in there being a Palestinian state."
Alan Dershowitz
