Obama Administration Approach to Israel & Iran

Today, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs issued a press release concerning Israeli construction in East Jerusalem that began with the sentence, "The United States opposes new Israeli construction in East Jerusalem."

Simple. Direct. To the point. Incredibly misguided.

Yesterday, National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer issued a press release concerning violence in in Iran that began with the sentence, "We strongly condemn the violent and unjust suppression of civilians in Iran seeking to exercise their universal rights."

Mickey Spillane would never have written such a mealy mouthed sentence. If I had written a sentence like that in high school any of my teachers would have asked, "Who are you condemning?"

With the White House placing more pressure on Israel than on Iran is it any wonder Khamenei, the Mullahs and Ahmadinejad do not take the Obama Administration seriously?

It is indeed disgusting that the Obama Administration places more pressure on Israel than Iran.
