ECI to Obama: We Will Keep Telling It Like It Is

Dec 17, 2011 No Comments by

Statement from William Kristol, chairman of the Emergency Committee for Israel, in response to President Obama’s speech today at the convention of the Union for Reform Judaism:

“I am proud to say that no U.S. administration has done more in support of Israel’s security than ours. None. Don’t let anybody else tell you otherwise. It is a fact.”

– President Obama, Friday, Dec. 16

For more like this:

“President Obama protests too much. It is not a fact that his administration has been strong in support of Israel. It is a fact that in the past month alone, Obama administration officials have blamed Israel for the failure of the peace process, blamed Israel for fraying relations with the increasingly Islamist governments in Egypt and Turkey, compared Israel to Iran, and blamed Israel for Muslim anti-Semitism in Europe. The president hasn’t clarified or repudiated any of these remarks. Israel’s security doesn’t come from campaign-season platitudes delivered to Jewish audiences. Israel’s security depends on an American president who stands with Israel all the time, in public and private, before audiences foreign and domestic — and whose administration’s first instinct isn’t to blame Israel first. The president’s wishes to the contrary notwithstanding, the Emergency Committee for Israel will continue to tell it like it is.”

– William Kristol
