Obama: 'Tear down this Wall' - to Israel

Rick Moran
Obama's somewhat vapid, cliche ridden speech in Germany yesterday included a curious references to "new walls" erected to "divide us from one another:"

The walls between old allies on either side of the Atlantic cannot stand.  The walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand.  The walls between races and tribes; natives and immigrants; Christian and Muslim and Jew cannot stand.  These now are the walls we must tear down. 
Was Obama referring to the wall in Israel separating Palestinian terrorists from Jewish civilians on the West Bank?

Ed Lasky thinks so:

I mentioned this in my
Jan 16th article on Obama:



He also has objected to Israel's security fence that has all but ended the suicide bombing campaigns that killed so many innocent people. In an interview in 2004 he stated:

"...the creation of a wall dividing the two nations is yet another example of the neglect of this Administration in brokering peace."
There are not two nations (at least yet) and the security fence is not a wall, it is a fence (only a small percent, less than 5% can be considered a "wall" and that is only because of space constraints and the desire to prevent sniper fire from the Palestinians).


How will people concernd about immigration and security look upon his call for walls to come tumbling down.  Joshua has met his modern counterpart- Obama-who will make the walls come tumbling down not with a trumpet but with a speech. I know he meant this metaphorically but not only does he rip off Reagan but his statement is  delusional and grandiose-does he really believe his rhetoric?

He really does believe it, Ed, because Obama is really into this "brotherhood of man" stuff - at the expense of soveriegnty and security. After all, in most places there is a very good reason to put up a wall; the guy on the other side would be more likely to kill you if there wasn't one.

But this kind of realism takes second place to Obama's vision of himself as The Deliverer of mankind from fear, poverty, war, AIDS, and any other scourge of the 21st century you care to name.

Typical new left pablum of which Obama is now the word made flesh and child of destiny.
