BARACK AND ISRAEL: BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY COME HOME TO ROOST?

In Obamarama on 25/03/2010 at 19:10

The national media doubled down during the 2008 campaign season to avoid exploring Barack Obama’s ties to Black Liberation Theology (BLT), and now the chill wind blowing through the corridors of the White House is bringing Jeremiah Wright’s proverbial chickens home to roost.

This from the Telegraph:

Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday. The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr. Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.

Forget your personal feelings about Israel for a moment. How smart do you think this is? Iran is working diligently to develop the bomb, and depending on who you’re listening to they are anywhere from one to three years away from success. The President alienates virtually the only other country in the world that is willing to stop them?

This is where Black Liberation Theology comes “home to roost.”

This radical and anti-Semitic doctrine glaringly showed itself in Obama’s shameful mistreatment of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week, and has been raising its ugly head almost from the moment the President took office.

First the whirlwind trip to the Middle East to – wink, wink – proclaim “the goodwill of the American people, and a greeting of peace from Muslim communities in my country: assalaamu alaykum.” Then Obama snubs our only democratic ally in the region. Onward and upward to Copenhagen where they really dig me!

BLT is the brainchild of Marxist-leaning theologian James Hal Cone, a black activist who came to prominence during the civil rights struggle of the 1950s and sixties. It may be the spiritual stepchild of the Father Divine peace movement of the 1950s.

BLT teaches that blacks are the Chosen People of the bible, that God is black and that Jesus was a black Messiah, which flies in the face of 2,000 years of Judeo-Christian theology, not to mention historical fact. The sect maintains close ties to the Nation of Islam and uses code for its anti-Semitic rhetoric.

Bottom line. BLT is a pro-Islamic, anti-Semitic dogma that can literally have nuclear consequences when it is pinging through the mind of an American president.

I could go on all day citing the volumes of books and reference material out there on BLT but I have neither the time nor space here. The Internet and libraries are full of them. What I will say is that Obama’s links to it are understandable in light of his childhood Marxist teachings and his exposure to Islam during his formative years in Indonesia.

And it is highly, enormously, relevant to the administration’s recent frost with the nation of Israel.

Obama’s cavalier approach to the Iranian situation is a powder keg that not only threatens the very existence of Israel, but that of the U.S. Iranian acquisition of a nuclear weapon – even if they do not intend to use it, and they do – will begin a further nuclear proliferation in the Middle East that can only end in a region-wide, if not worldwide holocaust.

If Obama doesn’t re-coalesce – mend his fences as it were – with Israel, the Israelis will have to strike Iran. The consequences such a move would be catastrophic.
