Rhymes With Right:

For six long years, Barack Obama and his administration have taken a stance towards Israel , America’s closest ally in the Middle East that can only be described as relentlessly adversarial (and which could be interpreted as being functionally anti-Semitic). In recent weeks, the Administration has even floated the possibility of imposing sanctions against Israel because it continues to build new subdivisions and apartments (because that’s what “settlements” really are) in territory that the Palestinian terrorists surrounding it demand for their own. This comes after repeated snubs directed towards Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and appeasement of Iran, which is seeking to build nuclear weapons in order to attack the Jewish state. These actions are just one example of how American allies have been disrespected by this Administration, harming our standing in the eyes of the world.

But if you are an enemy of the United States, you get coddled. The country’s Iran policy is one example, and today’s moves with relation to Cuba are another.

President Obama announced sweeping changes to U.S. policy with Cuba on Wednesday, moving to normalize relations with the island nation and tear down the last remaining pillar of the Cold War.Under the new measures, the United States plans to reopen its embassy in Havana and significantly ease restrictions on travel and commerce within the next several weeks and months, Obama said. Speaking from the White House, he declared that a half-century of isolation of the communist country “has not worked.”

And in an instance, one of the cornerstones of America’s bipartisan foreign policy for the last half century has been demolished by Obama. A nation which has long shown itself to be an enemy of the United States and a serial violator of basic human rights for all its citizens will get everything it has wanted from the US.

And it isn’t just a prisoner exchange, the end of long-standing economic sanctions and the establishment of diplomatic relations with the Communist dictatorship just off our shore. It is also the removal of Cuba from the list of state sponsors of terrorism.
