obamaObama’s insidious attacks upon Israel and the Jewish nation
September 7, 2009


We’ve timelined Obama’s insidious attacks upon Israel and the Jewish nation and our efforts to oppose it all, plus a list of upcoming events to those selling us out AND OUR RESISTANCE TO THEM and also to our “MILLION MENCH MARCH” FOR JUNE 5-6,2010.

Please read it all and respond to it all. We are in the 1930s, again. The longer you remain silent, the worse it will get. Everyone must fight back,NOW!

The Timeline to Consider: The Conspiracy to Destroy Israel and our efforts to Save Israel and America!

April 20, 2009, Shalom International does four days of rallies to support a United Israel/Jerusalem at “Durbin II” in Geneva, Switzerland.

May 11, 2009. Shalom International Rally to Keep Jerusalem United, 200 people and 60 media interviews: Pope, EU, UN. Obama: “Hand Off Jerusalem”, at Zion Square, Jerusalem.

May 21, 2009, Bibi Netayahu, says Jerusalem will always be the Capital of Israel and Temple Mount will remain under Israeli Sovereignty.

May 29, 2009, Hillary Clinton, Sec. of State, says “No expansion for purposes of natural growth” in Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem, which should go to the Arabs. In other words remove 630,000 Jews, make the area ‘Judenrein’ and institute the policies of racism and apartheid and this from the Liberal Left, no less.

June 3, 2009, Pres. Obama reinforces this ‘no natural growth’ politics in favor of the Arabs. Israeli MK Katz, calls this “Anti-Semitism” and in Arutz Sheva.

June 4, 2009, Obama in Cairo, equating the Holocaust with Arab humiliation, ignoring Israel’s 5000 yr. history, and forgetting to mention 5 Arab Wars and 2 intifadas of Arabs wanting to eliminate all Jews and Israel as part of their humiliation.  Obama bows to Saudi Prince at “G-20” Summit in London, April 2, 2009. Now this bowing and rewarding of Islamic terrorists. Saudi Arabia is responsible for 9/11, over 13,000 Islamic attacks and global blackmail via oil politics dictating policy at UN, EU and Obama. Saudi “Road Map” is to divide Jerusalem and Israel and that is the end of Israel and the Obama position is to support the Saudi ‘Road Map’.

June 14, 2009, Vice-President Biden on NBC’s “Meet the Press”, admits ‘stimulus’ plan is a failure and that ‘everyone guessed wrong.’  This is about the nearly $800billions  spent and now 10% unemployment and few jobs. If they can blow it on this, then why not also Obama’s unrealistic and willful denial and deceit towards Israel and led by his phony Jews?

June 23, 2009, George Mitchell, special envoy: “Natural Growth Must Stop.”

July 5, 2009, Shalom International Rally for Israel in front of White House.

July 5, 2009, Vice-Pres. Biden on ABC: “Israel is a sovereign nation” regarding going after Iran to prevent being nuked by Iran.

July 6, 2009, Obama contradicts Biden on Israel’s right to act against Iran and absolutely denied any green light for Israel to act against Iran.

July 10, 2009, Bibi Netayahu says in Haaretz ,that both Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s Chief of Staff and David Axelrod, who ran Obama’s campaign are “Self-hating Jews”.

July 13, 2009,Obama, Emanuel, Axelrod meet with 14 Jewish leaders to sell the division of Jerusalem and Israel and ‘silence’ from those participating, while enhancing their careers with this outrage. Those participating:

Alan Solow, Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations( We invited him to our rally in Chicago and he said: “I’ll pass”.)
Lee Rosenberg, President-elect, AIPAC
David Victor, President, AIPAC
Malcolm Honlein, Executive Vice Chairman, Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations
Abraham Foxman, National Director, Anti-Defamation League
Jason Isaacson, Director of Government and International Affairs, American Jewish Committee
Nancy Ratzan, President, National Council of Jewish Women
Kathy Manning, Chair, Executive Committee, United Jewish Communities
Andrea Weinstein, Chair, Jewish Council for Public Affairs
Marla Gilson, Washington Director, Hadassah
Stephen Savitsky, President, Orthodox Union
Rabbi Steven Wernick, Executive Vice President and CEO, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism
Rabbi Eric Yoffie, President, Union for Reform Judaism
Ira Forman, Chief Executive Officer, National Jewish Democratic Council
Debra DeLee, President and CEO, Americans for Peace Now
Jeremy Ben Ami, Executive Director, J STREET

July 23, 2009, Hillary, from Thailand, says the U.S. will offer Arabs a nuclear umbrella from Iran, but purposely ignores covering Israel in this umbrella. U.S. had previously offered this umbrella on Dec. 11, 2008, but no longer.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Leiberman met with Brazil’s President and Latin America’s biggest nation to use its influence to help halt Iran’s nuclear program(Miami Herald, 7/23/09). From Moscow, the nuclear power plant that Russia is building in Iran will be switched on this year( in four months) and Israel claims will be used for nuke weapons.

July 28, 2009, from Jerusalem (Miami Herald-7/28/09), Israel made it clear that it would do anything necessary to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and in opposition to Obama. In other words a preemptive strike. Israeli Defense Minister Barak said this when U.S. Defense Secretary Gates was in Israel trying to reassure Israel but not having much luck.

July 31, 2009, Shalom International/ and JDLCanada, rally across from U.S. Consulate in Toronto, against Obama’s plan to divide Israel and Jerusalem. We get two media and 35 for Noon with 2 days notice.

August 1, 2009, Saudi Arabia rejects Obama’s appeal for immediate Arab gestures toward normalcy ties with Israel. Saudi Arabia, behind ‘9/11’; over 13,000 Islamic Nazi attacks worldwide; Oil blackmail of the world’s economy and whose ‘road map’ is to divide and conquer Israel and Jerusalem, is the player that Obama not only bowed to, but openly courts regarding oil.

August 2, 2009, 3 gays are killed in Tel Aviv. Over 60,000 rally two weeks later against this outrageous slaughter. Two Arab families are removed from East Jerusalem and the world media and governments goes crazy against Israel. Over 100,000 illegal Arabs just in E. Jerusalem, nobody wants to talk about.

August 3, 2009, Obama is allowing Iran to get its nukes, London Times online.

August 5, 2009, Hezbollah now has 40,000 missiles aimed at Israel. (Apparently the UN turned a blind eye to these weapons from Iran coming through Syria into Lebanon). Israeli government admits that since the ‘cease-fire’ with Hamas,  362 rockets have been fired into Israel.

August 8, 2009, Fatah and Abbas (the ‘moderates’, Obama is negotiating with) demand the right to armed conflict and now want all of Jerusalem, not just East Jerusalem.  No peace, just Palestine, which is all of Israel.
“We’ll sacrifice victims till Jerusalem is ours”, they said at their convention in Bethlehem. Not a word from Obama.

August 9, 2009, Bibi Netayahu said: :”Israel will not repeat the mistakes of Gaza.” In other words, there will be no removal of 630,000 Jews from Judea, Samaria and East Jerusalem. Remember the 10,000 Jews, Israel removed from Gaza, which led to the Hamas takeover, thousands of missiles flown into Israel by Hamas and the war against Hamas in Dec.2008 and Jan. 2009.   

August 9, 2009, Shalom International does a “For Israel and Against Obama/Emanuel Rally in Chicago, Obama’s back yard, with 300 attending and Caroline Glick of Jerusalem Post as key speaker and 8 media also came. This rally was our 130the since Oct. 2007 and our 1000 news interview. We broke the silence, became the catalyst and conscience of our community with as much visibility we could muster from 14 rallies at the White House, leading the opposition in “Annapolis”, being at both national conventions(Denver, St. Paul) and first presidential debate(Oxford, Miss.); at the General Assembly(Nashville, Nov. 2007), AIPAC(D.C. in 2008), Israeli Consulates in NY and Miami, our rallies at the Holocaust Memorial on Miami Beach for 2000 on Jan. 4, 2009, and also in Philly in 2007. Our 35 rallies at the Fed. Bldg. in Ft. Laud, starting in Dec. when the pro-Hamas gang screamed “Jews into the ovens,” and every Tuesday since and the very many other key events we have been to at the UN against Iran and for Israel there and in Times Square, NY.

August 10, 2009, World Net Daily reports that U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem website ignores Jews and Israelis and only focuses on Arabs and P.A.. To Obama, Israelis and Jews don’t exist in Jerusalem.

August 11, 2009, NYTimes editorial saying that the ‘creation of Israel was a mistake to begin with’ and that Israel must accept the ‘2-states’, which will effectively end the Jewish State of Israel. The NY Times barely covered the Holocaust let alone its continuation from Hitler to Hamas, Iran, etc.

August 13, 2009, another self-hating Jew and anti-Israeli ,is being considered as Ambassador of Syria from U.S..

August 14, 2009, Miami Herald: Arab states are lobbying European Union to force Israel to open up its secretive nuclear program.

August 17, 2009, Rasmussen poll says only 8% of U.S. sees Israel as the problem and 70% support Israel. We knew that by all the rallies we’ve done with our high visibility and all the support we’ve gotten. The question is how to close the gap between 78% of American Jews who voted for Obama and that only 6% of Israelis see Obama as a friend of Israel’s.

August 17, 2009, former Pres. candidate, Mike Huckabee, in Israel, says he is against ‘2-states’ and that the Arabs shouldn’t have their state in the West Bank, but somewhere else. We suggest federating West Bank Arabs with Jordan and Gaza Arabs with Egypt and in Sinai they can build their new state.

August 19, 2009, Israeli Interior Minister and 3 other Cabinet officials tour a Jewish outpost in the West Bank and said: “Israel must do what it believes is right, and the Americans will understand that there was no choice but to continue building.” (Ft. Laud: Sun-Sentinel, 8/19/09). “An Israeli demonstrator unfurled a banner portraying Obama in a checkered Palestinian Kaffiyeh: “Barack Hussein Obama-AntiSemite Jew-Hater.”

August 19, 2009: Dr. and Mrs. Bregman join me to protest another Jewish Congressman, Ron Klein, to denounce his sellout of Israel and America, in Boynton Beach. We only had a few negatives and lots of positives and Ch. 12 in Palm Beach videod our sign: “Obama, Emanuel, Klein-Betrayed Israel and America”. It was on both the Noon and 6 P.M. news. Many thumbs up from cars coming by and two women also stopped by to offer support.

August 19, 2009, Egyptian President Hazni Mubarak meets with Obama who ‘sees positive steps in Mideast and the potential for starting peace talks is good.’  Egypt gets helicopters, in June, from Obama, who won’t give them to Israel. Egypt in their own Summit with Fatah and Hamas, can’t get the two sides to agree to anything.  Over 1000 Fatah and Hamas have killed each other this past year.Egypt, Israel’s ‘peace partner’ has allowed Hamas to build over 300 tunnels, which brought in the many thousands of rockets from Iran and fired into Israel and are still rearming Hamas for the next round of fighting.

August 20, 2009, Israeli Pres. Shimon Peres tells Russians, ‘don’t send Iran missiles’ and Russian promised to reconsider. These missiles could protect Iran’s nuclear facilities.

August 20, 2009: Wall St. Journal suggests that if Obama wants talks with our enemies N. Korea and Iran then perhaps he should also include Al Qaeda. After all, Bin Laden and Al Zawahiri are only demanding: “withdrawal of all infidels from all Arab lands; stop stealing Muslim wealth by threat or military force; conduct exchange at real fair prices; stopping the support for the corrupt, apostate regimes in the Islamic world; release of all Muslim prisoners and stopping the interference in the affairs of the Islamc world.”   Why wouldn’t Obama go with these demands, like he’s bowed down and groveled to all the other demands?

August 20, 2009, Shalom International/ rallies with hundreds against Rep. Wexler,in Delray Beach. Wexler, is the key lieutenant with Emanuel, to convince the Jews in S. Fla. to support Obama, which made the difference in Fla. going for Obama. We chanted: “Throw out Wexler” with dozens of media there. We collected 100 names for us and our stickers and buttons were a major hit. I did one interview with NPR and our huge banner: “Fight Terrorism-Support Israel” was on Ch. 7, Fox. Even CNN videod our sign: “Obama,Emanuel,Wexler Betrayed Israel and America and Health Care”. Our approach: If you can’t trust Obama on his sellout of Israel, how can you trust him on health care?” I am also on the “Joyce Kaufman Show” broadcasting ‘live’ from this staged event by Wexler and gang, that got bad reviews from the media as well.

In Fla. polls show that we are the first state with Obama now below 50% in support. Shalom International knows that all of our rallies are making a big difference. Our visibility does matter.

August 21, 2009, PAN Am 103 bomber Abdel Baset al Megrahi, who murdered 270 and who is dying from cancer, was given his freedom, returned to Libya to a hero’s welcome and a ‘moral victory’ and again another slap in the face of Obama, with his token reaction to this horrorable politcal affront that completely ignores the tragedy and loss of both victims and families. This wasn’t about compassion ,but about Libya’s oil. Once again an Islamic Nazi got away with mass murder and Obama is that role model for appeasement and playing these incredibly disgusting politics, that was now picked up by Scotland too.

August 22, 2009. Shalom International/ joined with 50 ‘tea party’ folks to protest Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. Our sign said: “Wasserman Schmutz”, which is how Joyce Kaufman refers to her on her radio show daily. We got lots and lots of support from drivers coming by and another batch of names on our petitions and also support for our rally for Israel on Sept. 13, 2009 at Sand Bourne Square, Boca Raton, 4-7P.M. Many folks who won’t be going to Wash. D.C. for the Sept 12 rally will be coming to ours. Isn’t the issue to really ‘clean up the schmutz’ already?

August 24, 2009, Bibi responds to charges by Sweden that Israeli soldiers are killing Palestinians and selling their organs for profit.  We’re back to the ‘blood libel’ days of Jews being accused of drinking Christian children’s blood for the holidays. So many Jews were slaughtered for that insanity too.

Besides all of the above and more, we have seen a huge increase in anti-semitism across the planet; the anti-Israel media bias from BBC, NYTimes, LATimes, CNN, “60 Minutes”, etc. and then there are the editorials against Israel. In the Miami Herald alone are the usual Jewish columnist sellouts like Uri Dromi, Frida Ghitis. and Trudy Rubin, all telling Israel to give in, give up, don’t resist Iran, etc. and it goes on and on. Don’t forget Thomas Friedman of the NY Times and his infinate stupidity that has helped place Israel into its present predicament.

While Obama rewards the very person, Mary Robinson, pushing ‘Durbin I’ ,which was a massive attack on Israel and the Jewish people and  our faith, the very Jewish groups denouncing this action, were also meeting with Obama to divide Jerusalem and Israel, and so where is this credibility?
Shalom International/ is already organizing to expose and oppose Israel’s and America’s enemies.

1. We’ll be at the ‘9/12’ mass rally in D.C. on 9/12/09 at the Mall to mobilize with all our ‘infidel’ supporters, for all our other actions and to include Obama’s attacks and madness towards Israel, as part of those folks who oppose Obamacare, cap and trade etc.

2. We’ll be Rallying for Israel and America, Sept. 13, 2009, 4-7P.M., Boca Raton’s Sand Bourne Square, 2nd St. and Federal Highway. Contact Dr. Bob Bregman, Chair-Shalom International/ Boca Raton Chapter:

3. Also, on Sept. 13:

Shalom International/ Chicago Chapter: Contact: Eric Voogd.

We will be protesting against the whole Left Wing Movement Against Israel, that will be meeting at the University Center in Chicago, Sept. 12, 13. Our counterprotest will be on the 13th, 1P.M., across the street at 525 S. State St..

The Left’s Agenda:
This year’s annual conference will be extremely important-all member groups of the US Campaign should start making plans to send delegates today.  We’ll be discussing the political situation and its implications for our work in the United States, next steps forward on our Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions campaigns, the ongoing political and legislative work challenging military aid to Israel, the functioning of the coalition and much more. We will be bringing back our Grassroots Training Institute.  Download the agenda by clicking on the link below.

Speaking Out: A night of solidarity and entertainment to benefit the US Campaign’s work with Prof. Rashid Khalidi, Omar Barghouti & More!

The US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is excited to invite you to Speaking Out, a night of solidarity and entertainment to benefit the work of the US Campaign, Saturday, September 12! We are honored to welcome the Director of the Middle East Institute at Columbia University, Professor Rashid Khalidi and Omar Barghouti as our keynote speakers on issues of Policy and Boycott and Divestment.

Here is a flyer regarding the presentation from Obama’s dear friend  Rashid Khalidi on Saturday evening the 12th of September 2009.

Here is an article from their website:
4.. We’ll be protesting Oct. 20,21, 2009, at the National Jewish Democratic Council Convention at the Hilton Hotel, 1919 Conn. Ave. 9 AM.

5..  We’ll be joining with JDLCanada to protest against “J St”. Sunday, Oct. 25, 9AM at Grand Hyatt Hotel, 1000 H St., N.W., Wash., D.C. and again at 7P.M. on Oct. 28.

6..  We’ll be rallying for Israel on Nov. 8-11 at the General Assembly of 3000 Jewish leaders in Wash., D.C., 9 A.M., at Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Rd., N.W., Wash., D.C.
The only reason the opposition keeps getting away with it and those who are selling Israel and America down the drain, is the lack of response from the Jewish grassroots community, who everyone is waiting to hear from.

While we have previously mobilized thousands in the 136 rallies so far, we are going to do our ‘MILLION MENCH MARCH” IN WASH.,D.C., JUNE 5-6, 2010…..and finally make a huge statement on all of this, once and for all.

This will be for a “Remember the Holocaust” candlelight vigil , after Shabbos and march from the Holocaust Memorial  to the Lincoln Memorial on June 5.

This will be a celebration and honor for all who gave life and limb to stop the Nazis in WWII which began on D-Day, June 6, 1944 and to celebrate and honor all who gave life and limb on the “Sixth Day War”, when, with G-d’s help we defeated our enemies again  and liberated Israel, Jerusalem, and what belongs to the Jewish people for the last 5000 yrs.

This will be our opportunity to state firmly that Jerusalem and Israel will remain united forever and no 2-states’ and no division of Jeusalem and no nukes for Iran and no funding of terrorists… we march from the Mall past the White House to the Capital and then back to the Mall for a giant rally on June 6.

June 7, we lobby Congress on all of the above and for them not to abandon Israel and reward the terrorists which is the Obama position, that will only endanger America.

What if one million Jews and friends of Israel actually came together and made this statement? What if we rallied beforehand regularly, as part of this agenda and got the grassroots and media involved, raised funding and awareness and formed local chapters of this new international network?

Since we don’t have our own ‘Al Jazeera’ yet, we must build this movement from the ground up and document everything for our ongoing campaign around the world.

What if we sanctified our Covenant with G-d ,that has brought us to this point, no matter how many times our enemies try to kill us, G-d still keeps us going and why we have always won, no matter what. We are still the ‘light of all nations’ and the ‘conscience of the world’, not just the ‘scapegoat’.

What if we put on Tefillan on everyone who shows up for this ‘mitzvah’?

What if we had thousands of Shofar blowers to take down the Walls of Hate against Jews, Christains, Hindus, Bhuddists, all ‘infidels’, that is part of D.C. and global politics?

What if we connected by satellite with every community in the world …..for those who can’t be in D.C., and to do the very same impact in their local city and community? From Israel, Europe, Latin America, North America?

What if we created a catharsis, a turning point, against the insanity and danger, Israel and America are presently experiencing, though this effort?

What if we could change the course of history by showing up in D.C. and locally, for this?

Putting it mildly, we are just in the negotiation stages on all of this. All suggestions are welcome. All co-sponsorships are welcome. All donations to make this happen are welcome via or by mail to: ‘Defend Jerusalem”, P.O.Box 402263, Miami Beach, Fla. 33140.  All folks who would want to have a booth must also contact us and yes there will be a fee we are working on. 

Every Shul and organization should be represented as well as all the institutions of the victims of the Islamic terrorists we are facing worldwide.

Every Jew must look into their hearts as to how we can benefit Israel and America through this action.

While Shalom International and have never been silent, now we need to speak with a very large voice for all who care and to send this message to the EU, UN, Obama and Congress and to BIBI, etc., the Israeli people and the Jewish world and to all of our enemies who want “Death to Israel” and “Death to America”, that there is resistance and that G-d is indeed on our side in all of this.
