Abe Foxman’s Israeli Gladiator, Dr. Susan Rice, US ambassador at the United Nations, was Barack Obama’s first choice as country’s next secretary of state to replace outgoing Hillary Clinton. However, like Gen. David Petraeus, Rice also became victim of powerful Israel Lobby (AIPAC). Several Democratic Israel-Firsters have defended Rice for being scapegoated for Obama administration’s hesitation to take military action against Syria and Iran.
Former 4-term Florida congressman, Robert Wexler who now heads Israeli advocacy group Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace in Washington, just before Rice decision to drop out, wrote a Politico Op-Ed in which he showered praise on both Barack Obama and Susan Rice – calling them Kosher on Israel and Iran.
Yesterday, a frustrated Susan Rice told Barack Obama that she had decided to drop out of the race, which leaves Sen. John Kerry (his both grandparents were Jewish) as Obama’s next choice for the secretary of state vacancy. Barack Obama reportedly accepted her decision with a shot at Republicans.
“While I deeply regret the unfair and misleading attacks on Susan Rice in recent weeks, her decision demonstrates the strength of her character,” said Obama.
However, rational Americans and Muslim world have little to mourn Rice’s withdrawal, given her open and blind support for the Zionist regime. She supported Iraq and Libyan wars. She is also in favor of military actions against Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Iran.
Susan Rice’s main crime is that last year she had blasted Israel on its new illegal Jewish settlements. In February 2011, while she opposed the resolution condemning Israel’s settlement activity at the UN Security Council – she also committed the holy crime. In her follow-up speech, she flatly declares that “we reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” and declares that such activity is, essentially, the cause for “corroded hopes” in the Middle East. She condemned “the folly and legitimacy” of continued settlement activity.
Omri Cern’s reaction to Rice’s above statement, published in Jewish Commentary magazine (February 18, 2011) was: “I’m being forced to veto this condemnation of Israel because the Israel Lobby controls D.C.”.
In June 2011, discussing the PA proposed resolution recognizing a Palestinian state at the United Nations Association, Susan said: “And this would be exceedingly politically damaging in our domestic context, as you can well imagine. And I cannot frankly think of a greater threat to our ability to maintain financial and political support for the United Nations in congress than such an outcome.”
Rice has also insisted that the murder of US ambassador Christopher Stevens on September 11, 2012 was an instant reaction to the anti-Islam movie ‘Innocence Muslims’ (financed by pro-Israeli Jews). However, later evidence has proved murder to be an inside job to implicate Iran.
How some other Americans have described Susan Rice?
Ray McGovern, former CIA analyst and the CIA intelligence officer, says: “She has not been a good person for the oppressed – black or brown – and especially not for the Palestinians“.
David Swanson says: “She is a champion of imperialistic wars under the pretense of humanitarianism“.
Paul Craig Roberts, former assistant Treasury Secretary, says: “Rice is one of the most committed and blood-thirsty of the neoconservatives, and a representative of Israel’s right-wing government. She does not and would not represent the interests of the American people“.
Israel-Firster John Avlon writing in Jewish Newsweek, gave credit to Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power (Jewish) for destroying Libya, Africa’s most rich and stable country.
“The Libyan airstrikes mark the first time in US history that a female-dominated diplomatic team has urged military action. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined with UN Ambassador Susan Rice and the influential Office of Multilateral and Human Rights Director Samantha Power to argue for airstrikes against Libya. Their advice triggered an abrupt shift in US policy, overturning more cautious administrations’ counselors”.
