I give you the Leader of the Free World – by Default

Shema Yisroel Adnonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad.

Translated, the above probably has something to do with G-d and G-ns, knowing Kenny.

C-Span’s coverage of the AIPAC 2012 event where Prime Minister of Israel Bibi Netanyahu spoke included the following blurb;

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered remarks to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on the second day of its annual conference.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) also spoke earlier in the day. The recent escalation of tension between Israel and Iran was a key topic of discussion.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke about the dangers of allowing Iran to develop nuclear weapons. He said that containment is not an option and Iran must be stopped. He thanked Obama for the recent sanctions, but said that Iran continues to move forward and cannot wait any longer. “I’ll never let my people live in the shadow of annihilation,” he said.

Earlier in the evening, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell was critical of Obama’s approach on Israel and said that there needs to be clarity on when military force will be used. He said “overwhelming force” should be used to stop Iran, if it is enriching uranium to weapons grade levels, and he will author a Senate resolution to allow such force if Obama doesn’t act.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi followed him and spoke about the Obama administration’s recent sanctions, saying Iran is feeling the bite. She said that there is no bigger threat to Israel than a nuclear Iran and she called on the international community to join the U.S. and Israel in these efforts.

Prior to McConnell and Pelosi, Senator Joe Lieberman (I-CT) spoke to the conference, which states as its mission “working to strengthen relations between the United States and Israel.”  He said that the U.S. and Israel face “very direct threats” of military force against Iran if diplomacy and sanctions fail to stop its nuclear program.

AIPAC expected up to 14,000 attendees at the annual three-day conference, a crowd nearly twice the usual size.

Prime Minister Netanyahu met with President Obama at the White House earlier in the day, before addressing the conference in the evening session.

President Obama spoke to the conference on Sunday afternoon, and three of the four Republican presidential candidates are also expected to deliver remarks on Tuesday.

Above said blurb actually didn’t do the speech by Netanyahu any justice. I saw coverage of his speech at Fox News (and no other network broadcast it, I’m told), and I was out of my seat several times, forgetting I was, like, in a house and not an auditorium.

  1. I’m pretty sure we’ve recited this in the Catholic Church many times as well.

    Shema Yisroel Adnonai Elohenu, Adonai Echad.
    Baruch Sheim K’vod Malchuto L’olam Va’ed.

    Hear Oh Israel, The Lord Our God, The Lord Is One.
    Praise the Lord, to whom our praise is due, now and forever. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

    Thanks, for posting this for us on UP, and we know Kenny is keeping a close eye on the situation. Israel will not stand by and let herself be attacked, and whether the American Jews understand this as they secularize with the Leftist/socialists pals, it matters not, because there are many Christians in this country who support Israel. Ultimately, saving Israel will be about saving ourselves.

  2. It was somewhat comical to see Obama at his presser yesterday reminding everybody that he’s the Commander-in-Chief. He said all those R’s out there on the campaign trail were “popping off”. This clown, after dithering for nine months and then finally giving the go-ahead to the /seals to take out Bin Laden at just about the time his poll numbers were about to fall through the floor, thinks that little episode was being the CIC; that and getting tens of thousand of Muslims killed in his glorious Arab Spring so his al quaeda and Muslim Brothers could come in and expand the Caliphate.

  3. Bibi has more guts than any *leader* I know. I’ve been to Israel, it’s so very tiny. They have a right to defend themselves just like the US does. Obama’s actions and non-actions to the one great nation in the entire Middle East are a travesty and despicable.
