Beck takes on the anti-Israel president

Glenn Beck is on a roll. He recently traveled to Israel where he made clear that he stands with the Jewish nation-state. It may be surrounded by enemies, and Obama may throw it under the bus, but Beck isn’t about to abandon Israel – the only true democracy in the Middle East, by the way.
Today, his website The Blaze published an article entitled “Obama Sides With Palestinians.” You can read it here. Beck just referred to the piece on his radio show arguing that, for the first time in history, the U.S. has joined the dark side with regards to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.
The reason, of course: Obama said yesterday that Israel has to withdraw to its pre-1967 borders.
President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians’ demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel. Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations.
Mitt Romney already said that Obama has thrown Israel under the bus – and he’s right (as is Beck).
We all knew that Obama would eventually side with the Palestinians, of course, but I’m shocked nonetheless. This demand is utterly ridiculous, insane and even murderous. Giving into these demands would mean committing suicide for Israel. Those are big words, but they’re warranted in this situation. As Joe Klein explained at NewsReal:
A future attack launched from the pre-1967 lines against Israel’s nine-mile-wide waist at its narrowest point could easily split the country in two. Most of its national infrastructure (airports, industries, and inter-city highways) and population centers would be fully exposed to hostile fire from military forces deployed along the adjacent West Bank hill terrain, which would serve as an ideal platform of attack for Arab military forces. The Golan Heights would provide the Syrians with the same strategic military position to threaten Israeli civilians living below. Protecting against infiltration by Palestinian terrorists would be virtually impossible.
Our merry leftist friend seems to be all too happy about the prospect of letting Israelis be slaughtered by Hamas and Hezbollah. It’s almost surreal: how many true allies do we have precisely in the Middle East?
Beck is now sounding the alarm bell – thank God that at least someone does.
