After ‘tepid’ welcome at Israeli Embassy, Obama’s pro-Israel speech brought down the house

on 47 Comments

As you know, President Obama gave a speech about the Holocaust at the Israeli Embassy in Washington on Wednesday night, the first time a president has made a speech in that venue. The president gave his speech in the very place where Israeli officials plotted against him and his most important foreign policy achievement, the Iran deal, just a few months ago.

Last night in New York, Chemi Shalev, US editor of Haaretz, who attended the event, said that Obama’s speech had “the most philosemitic, pro-Jewish” character as well as being supportive of Israel, and that the president brought down the house. Shalev spoke at a New Israel Fund event:

When he came in, there were about 300 people there… the response was quite tepid. Ambassador Dermer, for instance, got much warmer applause than Obama did. But when Obama left, after he made this speech, these same people who had barely gotten up to clap– it’s a scene I’ve never seen before. They were all in suits and they were shouting out, Thank you, thank you, thank you. It was really heartfelt, it was an outpouring of noise toward him, which I don’t think is going to change much in the perception that a lot of Israelis and Jews unfortunately have of Obama but for anybody who was there this whole claim that he somehow is working against Israeli interests or that he doesn’t have warm feelings for Jews, it just sounded so ridiculous. If you were there, you would know how ridiculous and how malicious it is. And how probably politically motivated.


Here is the president’s speech on CSPAN. You can see something of the joyful response at 1:22:00.

The speech’s key moment was when the president saluted the late American army sergeant Roddie Edmonds, who was in a Nazi prison camp at the end of the war in 1945 when he answered a Nazi’s challenge to tell him who the Jewish American soldiers were by saying, “We are all Jews.”  Obama addressed Edmonds’s son:

Your father was right — we are all Jews.  Because anti-Semitism is a distillation, an expression of an evil that runs through so much of human history, and if we do not answer that, we do not answer any other form of evil.  When any Jew anywhere is targeted just for being Jewish, we all have to respond as Roddie Edmonds did — “We are all Jews.”

The president then went on to affirm his support for “the Jewish State of Israel… forever.”

when voices around the world veer from criticism of a particular Israeli policy to an unjust denial of Israel’s right to exist, when Israel faces terrorism, we stand up forcefully and proudly in defense of our ally, in defense of our friend, in defense of the Jewish State of Israel.  America’s commitment to Israel’s security remains, now and forever, unshakeable.

He closed his speech, “God bless the state of Israel.”

Again to emphasize the powers that Obama acknowledged in his speech, note that the CSPAN tape begins with Nina Totenberg, judicial correspondent for National Public Radio, utterly aligning herself with the Israeli embassy on behalf of the Jewish people.

It’s a great honor for me to be here this evening with all of you… When Yad Vashem was established, the Jewish people did not forget the non-Jews who stood by their side in the darkest period of history… The state of Israel made a point of remembering the rescuers. Thus the law establishing Yad Vashem added yet another mission to pay tribute to the non-Jews who risked their lives… Since 1963 a public commission headed by an Israeli Supreme Court justice… has been responsible for making the decision as to who will be recognized as righteous among the Nations. This title is the highest honor that the state of Israel bestows on non-Jews in the name of the Jewish people. Our ceremony here today is unprecedented… I’m honored to invite to the stage our host his excellency Ron Dermer…

Then Dermer, who lobbied against the president’s Iran deal, including by intriguing with Republican members of Congress to have Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address both houses of Congress last March in opposition to the president, takes the podium and welcomes Obama.

At the end of the speech, Totenberg says, “We invite you to join us in the tent for the buffet afterwards.”

    Netanyahu/Israel/Dermer and other zionists insulted and disrespected Obama, had his effort to make a successful nuclear deal with Iran sabotaged by the zionists, had to face a Nutty/Dermer manipulated congress welcome the warmonger to attack those efforts, and it seems the zionists even spied on those negotiations with Iran, now he goes to the Israeli embassy to kiss up to those zionists and show undying love for their nation? How disappointing.

    I am ashamed that our President has no pride, and is allowing the master puppeteers to make him look such a fool. I doubt he would have gone to any other embassy and showed such shameless devotion like that.

    • annie on January 29, 2016, 1:35 pm

      now he goes to the Israeli embassy to kiss up to those zionists

      i guess i don’t really see it like that. i can relate to the saying, in relation to the holocaust, we are all jews, in the same way i relate to the saying ‘we are all palestinians’ as it relates to the genocide occurring today. so since the event was to honor these individuals, and the one who spoke those words in that event that happened in ww2, i thought it was good speech — although there were parts of it i don’t agree with. but i think he was sincere — i don’t think he did it to kiss up.

      also, i am sure obama will never forget the crap they put him thru, ever. but he’s presidential and there’s no sense infecting a holocaust memorial type event with this iran deal crap. that’s just stupid because it paints a moral equivalence between the 2 when there is none. he shows he is bigger than that, unlike the jerks at the embassy.

      and although he was at the embassy, the speech is historical and won’t be remembered in the context of the iran deal. it will be some legacy of his presidency — because you just know they are going to try to jimmy carter him going into history. so he was setting the record straight, and he has been nothing but supportive of israel, to the detriment of palestine.

      i hope someday some US president recognizes we are all palestinians. we think that day will never come but i think it will. just like during the civil rights movement nobody thought there would be a black president in 40 years.

      • Boomer on January 29, 2016, 4:54 pm

        Maybe 40 years from now, some U.S. president will say something nice about Palestinians. Not this one, evidently.

      • Kay24 on January 29, 2016, 8:43 pm

        To your point, it is long overdue that the Palestinians were recognized as being us, after all the world’s greatest democracy has ignored the plight of people who have not know freedom for decades, and our weapons are used to aid their occupier massacre thousands of them at the slightest excuse. I cannot begin to understand this sick relationship we have with Israel, and why we keep pretending they have a right to occupy, steal, and kill.

      • annie on January 29, 2016, 10:02 pm

        Come on, Annie.

        when voices around the world veer from criticism of a particular Israeli policy to an unjust denial of Israel’s right to exist, when Israel faces terrorism, we stand up forcefully and proudly in defense of our ally, in defense of our friend, in defense of the Jewish State of Israel. America’s commitment to Israel’s security remains, now and forever, unshakeable.

        He closed his speech, “God bless the state of Israel.”

        If that isn’t kissing up we need a new definition for that idiom.

      • annie on January 29, 2016, 10:25 pm

        sorry, echi — i told you why i thought he did it, and i’ll stand by that. obama can be pretty dern slick. remember when he took a trip to israel in march 2013 and was all chummy and at the same time > “Israel kept out of the loop as secret US/Iran meetings took place in Oman” – See more at: meanwhile our highest ranked foreign service officer in United States history started negotiating w/iran behind israel’s back the same month? story broke in nov 2013:

        The AP was tipped to the first U.S.-Iranian meeting in March shortly after it occurred

        here’s more, israel was fuming

        and this was happening and on the schedule (probably set months before also) timed when he was making the historic trip.

        israel didn’t find out til —- later.

        i think the speech was made for historical purposes — legacy and all that. that’s just my hunch. and who knows what’s going on behind the scenes right now.

        i don’t think he was kissing up, i think he is playing his cards the way he wants to.

      • echinococcus on January 29, 2016, 11:09 pm

        Sure, that Obama can be all that you say, Annie, and even worse. But if that speech qua speech is for his “history” image, then he’ll be going down in history as, ehm, pardon the tactless words, the brownest nose for Zionism.

      • Eric on January 30, 2016, 7:50 am

        Since when does holocaust memorial = kissing up to Israel and a US president pledging support to a foreign power…forever? Unless you believe Israel acts on behalf of world Jewry (ignoring the 22% of the population that’s not Jewish) and every Jew considers Israel their motherland, which is absurd. Speaking at a local synagogue, ideally not one with extreme Zioinist leanings, would have been more appropriate to pay his respects and commemorate the occasion. The real reason this pliant tool prostrated himself like this is post-presidential cash flow…

      • ckg on January 30, 2016, 8:35 am

        Having been first thrilled by his 2008 election but then continuously disappointed by his administration, I would have hoped that Obama would be more concerned for his legacy by now. We supporters of Palestinians know that history is on our side, and Obama will not fare well.

      • Misterioso on January 30, 2016, 1:54 pm


        Excellent response. I agree with you.

        Call me the eternal optimist, but I think Obama will come down hard on Israel before his presidency ends. The madness cannot continue. The consequences would be horrific.

        I suggest we keep our eyes on the UN. If sanity prevails, the US will not veto a UNSC resolution condemning Israel. Fingers crossed.

      • annie on January 30, 2016, 2:12 pm

  2. Laurent Weppe on January 29, 2016, 2:30 pm

    When any Jew anywhere is targeted just for being Jewish, we all have to respond as Roddie Edmonds did — “We are all Jews.”

    Obama’s right.
    Of course, his sentence implies a larger untold truth: When any Muslim anywhere is targeted just for being Muslim, we are all Muslims, when any Atheist anywhere is targeted just for being Atheist, we are all Atheists, when any LGBT anywhere is targeted just for being something else than conventionally straight, we are all Gays and Queers, When any Brown or Black Person anywhere is targeted just for not being White, we are all Negros, Ragheads and Mongrels… because if we’re not, we become nothing more than the abject bullies’ lackeys.

    • Krauss on January 30, 2016, 2:04 am

      I’m surprised you skipped over the most important part of his speech:

      when voices around the world veer from criticism of a particular Israeli policy to an unjust denial of Israel’s right to exist,

      Does a settler-colonial Apartheid state ‘deserve to exist’?
      Obama saying this in 2016 is like saying in 1986 that the white-ruled Apartheid South Africa is being a victim of unfair attacks on its legitimacy. And that’s probably an unfair comparison to Apartheid South Africa.

      Let us never forget that this is a key part of Obama’s legacy. And whenever he talks about race and racism, never forget this part of his speech.

      As I’ve said many times: if white Apartheid had even 10% of the support of Jewish apartheid in the media and in the donor class, Mandela would have been killed in a prison a long time ago and the Afrikaaners would still have been in power.

      • Laurent Weppe on January 31, 2016, 1:49 am

        Had Mandela been killed in prison, instead of peacefully transitioning to democracy in 1994, South Africa would have seen its white population genocided 10 years later and people would now be scratching their head, asking “Why didn’t the Afrikaner elite see it coming?

  3. JWalters on January 29, 2016, 3:36 pm

    Obama certainly made every effort to calm the fears of the Jewish community. But it seems to me the deepest part of his speech, the predominating ideas, begin at 1:12:45

    All nations that prize diversity and tolerance and pluralism must speak out whenever and wherever Jews and other religious minorities are attacked. In recent years, we’ve seen leaders in France, Germany, and Great Britain stand strongly against anti-Semitism. In Israel, President Rivlin has spoken eloquently about the need for tolerance and acceptance among all Israelis — Jewish and Arab. …

    “But the task before us does not fall on government alone. Every faith community has a responsibility. Just as all religions speak out against those who try to twist their faith to justify terrorism and violence, just as all faiths need to speak out when interpretations of their religion veer in an ugly direction, so, too, must they speak out against those who use their faith to justify bias against Jews, or people of any faith.

    “We know that there were Muslims — from Albanians to Arabs — who protected Jews from Nazis. In Morocco, leaders from Muslim-majority countries around the world just held a summit on protecting religious minorities, including Jews and Christians. His Holiness Pope Francis has spoken forcefully against anti-Semitism, saying, “Every human being, as a creature of God, is our brother, regardless of his origins or religious beliefs.” These are the voices we must heed. And anyone who claims to be a religious leader must project that vision, that truth. …

    “And so we’re called to live in a way that shows that we’ve actually learned from our past. And that means rejecting indifference. It means cultivating a habit of empathy, and recognizing ourselves in one another; to make common cause with the outsider, the minority, whether that minority is Christian or Jew, whether it is Hindu or Muslim, or a nonbeliever; whether that minority is native born or immigrant; whether they’re Israeli or Palestinian.

    “It means taking a stand against bigotry in all its forms, and rejecting our darkest impulses and guarding against tribalism as the only value in our communities and in our politics. It means heeding the lesson repeated so often in the Torah: To welcome the stranger, for we were once strangers, too. That’s how we never forget — not simply by keeping the lessons of the Shoah in our memories, but by living them in our actions. As the book of Deuteronomy teaches us, “Tzedek, Tzedek tirdof” — “Justice, Justice you shall pursue.”

    These are the deepest American values, the deepest Universal values, and these are the values that will ultimately guide America’s foreign policy. Israel needs to get on board with these values.

      JWALTERS- “Obama certainly made every effort to calm the fears of the Jewish community.”

      What fears? Why are they so afraid? Of what?

      • JWalters on January 29, 2016, 11:21 pm

        Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has said “as a mother” she fears her children may be subjected to an uprising against Jews in America. So Israel is an essential backup country for her. So she has said.

        I’m not sure most American Jews actually believe this. And there’s no rational way this fear can justify the massive injustices inflicted on the Palestinians. I agree with your implication, this bullsh*t has to stop.

      • Keith on January 30, 2016, 1:39 am

        JWALTERS- “Debbie Wasserman-Schultz has said “as a mother” she fears her children may be subjected to an uprising against Jews in America.”

        Does that seem rational to you? And why would she say this if it wasn’t rational?

        JWALTERS- “I agree with your implication, this bullsh*t has to stop.”

        Does it? It seems to be working quite well for those who benefit from this. What could make it stop? Seriously, why would it? It is fine to call attention to the madness of the method, however, that does not negate the method of the madness. If it is madness. There is a certain logic to this particular manufactured irrationality. Should we pander to it? Or do we recognize the essential anti-Gentilism of Zionism and deal with that?

      • Tchoupitoulas on January 30, 2016, 3:49 pm

        @ JWalters – Dana Milbank feels the same way:

        Eleven years ago, I carried my infant daughter into a synagogue basement and plunged her tiny body, head to toe, underwater.

        She emerged sputtering and coughing, then wailing. The procedure, immersion in a Jewish ritual bath called a mikvah, felt barbaric. But it was for an important reason: Her mother isn’t Jewish, and by Jewish custom — and Israeli law — the faith is passed on by matrilineal descent, so I converted my daughter. Making sure she is Jewish in the eyes of the Jewish state gives me peace of mind. If the Gestapo ever comes again, she and her descendants will have a place to go. Just in case.

        I think carrying around this kind of paranoia is a very unhealthy way to go through life. It’s like, even if they weren’t in the camps, or didn’t even have family members that died there or were survivors, there’s this large group of people, who are actually choosing to have a mild form of PTSD. That’s just nuts.

      • Misterioso on January 30, 2016, 5:29 pm


        Re Debbie Wasserman-Schultz who fears “her children may be subjected to an uprising against Jews in America. So Israel is an essential backup country for her.”

        She and her ilk better wake up and smell the coffee. If Jews lose America, they lose Israel.

    • Boomer on January 29, 2016, 6:29 pm

      Nice words, pretty words indeed. From some speech writer, no doubt (how did Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln manage on their own) but Mr. Obama had to approve them, and say them.

      Perhaps it is gauche to ask, is that enough? Perhaps he thinks it will be enough, in his memoir and in the eyes of history, that he said these words. For me, it will be a cause for sadness that he only spoke, at a time when he could act.

      If these words are prologue to action, then redemption may be possible. But for now, I can only ask, what has he actually done to help Palestinians, or to reduce America’s complicity in their oppression and dispossession?

      • annie on January 29, 2016, 7:00 pm

        i’m still holding out for the UN vote vs the veto.

      • JWalters on January 29, 2016, 11:24 pm

        “If these words are prologue to action”

        I agree that is indeed the question. And I agree with Annie’s notion that a U.N. action is the most likely way the change will happen. Because clearly the members of Congress are mostly lapdogs for Israeli money.

        But the recent statements by high U.S. officials Kerry and Shapiro

        and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s recent speech, and his standing up to Netanyahu’s response,

        plus other movements on the international front, combine to suggest forces are coalescing against the bigotry and crimes of Israel. Obama’s words may be signaling that the “God told me to do it” story may have run its course. If a hammer comes down on those crimes, no claims that Obama is anti-Semitic will be credible.

      • irishmoses on January 30, 2016, 9:30 pm

        Spot on, JWalters. While I’m normally a skeptic on this, it seems to me all your recent examples show rising impatience with Netanyahu and his apartheid-prone gang. If France recognizes Palestine, other large European powers may follow and France and Europe could lead the way to a UN resolution on settlement illegality and resolution parameters which I don’t think Obama will veto as Israel and its lobby no longer hold any leverage over him.

        I also suspect there’s some behind-the-scenes collusion between the US and the EU to force a solution without having the US lead the way. China’s strong pro Palestine statement in Cairo suggests the collusion may be even wider.

        I think the real motivator is the realization by the Europeans that allowing Israel to continue and expand its oppression and brutality toward the Palestinians feeds into the ISIS/al Qaeda Crusader terrorism narrative and the sooner that can be shut down the better.

        We’ll see, but I think we’ve turned a corner.

        I think we are seeing a small ball of snow rolling down the slope which may soon become a raging boulder of snow and ice.

        If I said that I feared aJewish conspiracy that would control the lives of my children and assassinate them if they resisted I would be regarded as much worse than eccentric, indeed as mentally ill, stupid and malevolent. But the comparable Jewish fears are treated as acceptable: people who are not even regarded as eccentric and who hold highly respected positions may voice them. If it is said that the history of Jewish suffering justifies all these fears we should ask what the resemblance is between previous societies that caused people to flee and the contemporary societies of the West – and should expect a reasoned answer, such as I have never seen, just as I have never actually felt threatened from any Jewish quarter.
        Moreover ‘I can’t trust you, even when I have no specific evidence’ implies ‘You can’t trust me: I suspect, fear and despise you too much’.

  4. Kris on January 29, 2016, 4:09 pm

    I’m sick of hearing of Jews supposedly being targeted “just for being Jewish.”

    Why do supporters/enablers of ethnic cleansing and state-sponsored terrorism imagine that they are entitled to a pass from criticism and anger because they are “Jewish”? If criticism and justifiable anger bother these people, they should complain to Israel, who has made a science of conflating “Israel/Zionist” with “Jewish.”

    This is 2016, and the people who are actually being targeted “just for being” are Muslim or black or brown. The Holocaust ended in 1945. Today in 2016, Jews have huge economic and media power, which translates into huge political power. That is why Obama is doing this obnoxious pandering, in which he speaks movingly of moral and ethical teachings, but at the same time prepares to give Israel even more money to destroy Palestinian lives.

    • Keith on January 29, 2016, 5:13 pm

      KRIS- “I’m sick of hearing of Jews supposedly being targeted “just for being Jewish.”

      Kris, victimhood is an article of faith of the Holocaust Religion which underpins Zionism. Without the belief in eternal and irrational Gentile anti-Semitism, Zionism loses its justification.

      KRIS- “Today in 2016, Jews have huge economic and media power, which translates into huge political power.”

      Yes, the Jewish kinship fostered by Zionism has been good to many Jews, particularly the Jewish elites. Why would they want to give that up? Give up their “birthright” entitlement?

      • Mooser on January 31, 2016, 1:26 pm

        “Yes, the Jewish kinship fostered by Zionism has been good to many Jews, particularly the Jewish elites. Why would they want to give that up? Give up their “birthright” entitlement?”

        That’s a terrifying prospect. When that “birthright entitlement” is given up, “Jew” might just as well be a three-letter word.

      • Keith on February 1, 2016, 4:56 pm

        MOOSER- “When that “birthright entitlement” is given up, “Jew” might just as well be a three-letter word.”

        Bingo! I would love to transition back to the concept of a “Jew” as being someone who is a follower of the Judaic religion and nothing more. Universal values concerning human rights and the notion of a particular group’s “birthright” are mutually exclusive. Birthright harkens back to the days of feudalism where the nobility was born into entitlement. The term birthright may be more suggestive than the author intended.

    O/T, if the U.S. can hack Israeli drone feeds, it can presumably do the same to Israeli attempts to send instructions to their nuclear weapons.

    Great news, if true!

    NYT: U.S. and Britain Spied on Israeli Drone Flights, Documents Show:

    The Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth said that the National Security Agency in the United States and its British counterpart, Government Communications Headquarters, which monitor electronic and other communications, had decrypted Israeli communications on air force missions over Gaza, Iran and Syria.

    Israeli air force missions over Iran?

    • Kris on January 29, 2016, 7:56 pm

      It seems there is now an easy way to shoot drones down:

      The DroneDefender may be our first look at the perfect anti-drone technology. The device, which looks like a modern rifle with an antenna mechanism attached to the front — because that’s basically what it is — uses targeted radio waves to force drones out of the sky. The nondestructive tech “utilizes a non-kinetic solution to defend airspace up to 400m against UAS, such as quadcopters and hexacopters, without compromising safety or risking collateral damage.”

      Regulations in many regions obviously prevent people from firing conventional weapons at drones as a means of defense, so the DroneDefender rifle could be an ideal workaround. The device also has a range of more than 1,300 feet, and that may even improve in future versions.

      I hope someone buys lots of these DroneDefenders for the Palestinians, ASAP.

  6. wondering jew on January 30, 2016, 2:49 am

    I think that the chances of Obama approving (not vetoing) any meaningful UNSC resolution is now nearly zero. Whether this is out of concern for Hillary or the Democratic party or his post presidency is a cause for speculation, but I really cannot see any meaningful UNSC resolution receiving even tacit Obama support.

    I don’t know if a strong UN resolution would really change the reality on the ground, but given my opposition to the (settler nature of the) occupation, it is hard to see what moves the world can take to change the nature of the occupation or put it to an end.

    btw, i accept that there are more urgent forms of hatred in the world than antisemitism, but I certainly do not think that it is a danger that is totally anachronistic. the use of the conflation of anti zionism and antisemitism is objectionable certainly, but any true student of history would be remiss in dismissing this problem as if it is totally in the past. I understand that people here have higher priorities, but that does not excuse intellectual laziness, which is what a dismissal of antisemitism is, very lazy intellectually.
