    Ronald Wilson Reagan vs. Barack Hussein Obama on Israel: What a contrast

    Over the last few days, as the immoral, incoherent, supremely dangerous policies of Barack Obama concerning our friend and ally Israel have come into greater focus than ever before, we have been struck by the stark contrast with the principles and policies of President Ronald Reagan.

    Ronald Reagan:

    “The safety and security of the United States and the safety and
    security of Israel are all part of a larger cause: the cause of human
    rights for every man, woman, and child on this Earth.”


    -- Ronald Reagan, remarks to supporters of Israel at White House Briefing on United States foreign policy, March 15, 1988
    http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1988/031588a.htm


    “[W]hen it comes to Israel, the United States is not a bargainer or a
    broker: The United States is a friend and an ally. And that's why one
    of the things I'm proudest of is the steps we've been able to take
    during this administration to build a stronger foundation of enduring
    friendship and cooperation. For example, strategic cooperation --
    something other administrations shied away from -- is now a commitment our two governments have made to each other. It responds to our mutual needs and is a reminder to all that no wedge will be driven between the United States and Israel.”


    -- Ronald Reagan, remarks to supporters of Israel at White House Briefing on United States foreign policy, March 15, 1988
    http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1988/031588a.htm


    “Our policy has as its basis -- and this is a first principle in any
    negotiation -- the assuring of Israel's freedom and security. We will
    not leave Israel to stand alone, nor will we acquiesce in any effort
    to gang up on Israel. Peace will not be imposed by us or by anyone
    else. It will and must come from the genuine give-and-take of
    negotiations.”


    -- Ronald Reagan, remarks to supporters of Israel at White House Briefing on United States foreign policy, March 15, 1988
    http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1988/031588a.htm


    “Only a few years ago, some Americans were beginning to question what we stood for in the world. Our nation has now regained its confidence and sense of purpose. We've returned to proclaiming enthusiastically the democratic ideals that inspired our Founding Fathers and the Founding Fathers of Israel. And I think this vigorous foreign policy is good, of course, for Israel because the United States is thought of today as a strong nation and a reliable ally. This has helped move the process of peace forward throughout the world, and it has enhanced the security with all our friends and allies.  And what I hope you've noticed during the past few years is that we have moved American foreign policy away from the notion that mere containment is enough, that we have willingly and openly proclaimed to the world that our goal is not just peace but freedom as well, that we seek not separate spheres of influence or a simple balance of power or a deadening stalemate with totalitarianism, that we seek instead a day when every person in every land will share fully in the blessings of freedom. And that's the core of our foreign policy: protecting the security of the United States while advancing the cause of world freedom and democratic rights.”

    “We're making the future in which our children will live. Only the
    courage to act will ensure that it is a more peaceful, secure, and
    free world.”


    -- Ronald Reagan, remarks at a White House Meeting with Jewish Leaders,
    February 2, 1983
    http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1983/20283b.htm


    “In the words of the scripture, the time had come to ‘follow after the
    things which make for peace.’ Tonight I want to report to you the
    steps we've taken and the prospects they can open up for a just and
    lasting peace in the Middle East.  America has long been committed to
    bringing peace to this troubled region. For more than a generation,
    successive United States administrations have endeavored to develop a
    fair and workable process that could lead to a true and lasting
    Arab-Israeli peace. Our involvement in the search for Mideast peace is
    not a matter of preference; it's a moral imperative. The strategic
    importance of the region to the United States is well known, but our
    policy is motivated by more than strategic interests. We also have an
    irreversible commitment to the survival and territorial integrity of
    friendly states. Nor can we ignore the fact that the well-being of
    much of the world's economy is tied to stability in the strife-torn
    Middle East. Finally, our traditional humanitarian concerns dictated a
    continuing effort to peacefully resolve conflicts.”


    -- Ronald Reagan, address to the nation on United States policy for peace in the Middle East, September 1, 1982
    http://www.reagan.utexas.edu/archives/speeches/1982/90182d.htm

    Our foreign and defense policy must have a moral basis for it to ever be effective or lasting. Ronald Reagan understood this, and knew that such an understanding was the foundation for Peace through Strength.

    Of this, of course, Barack Hussein Obama knows nothing, as he has continuously demonstrated in all of his policies, foreign and domestic.

    As in all other things, those who build their houses on shifting sand will find their work swept away in the inevitable storms of time and history.

    And so, we pray that in the dangerous days ahead, may the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob raise up leaders who understand the timeless moral truths upon which our civilization depends, who can then bring clarity and true vision to bear so that the people too can understand, and act accordingly on behalf of liberty, our posterity, and true peace.
