The most pro-Israel American presidential administration ever? So the Democrats would have you believe of President Obola and his secretive and duplicitous crew.
An Israeli newspaper’s investigation shows otherwise.
Last summer, during Israel’s battle with rocket-firing Hamas in Gaza, the administration not only held up transfers to Israel of Hellfire missiles (and all ordinary munition resupply as well) for several, potentially crucial days, it also ordered the FBI not to cooperate in helping locate a missing IDF soldier.
The Israel Defense Force now believes Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul was dead all along but Hamas said he was alive and taunted the Israeli public with its worst nightmare (a kidnapped soldier from its conscript army) with details from his Facebook page:
“On July 22, as international news reports carried Hamas’ claim of Shaul’s capture, the IDF really had no idea whatsoever what happened to the Israeli soldier. The only statement made by the IDF at that point was that Shaul was missing in action. Even two days later, the IDF still did not know if Shaul had been kidnapped by Hamas or whether he was dead.”
So, because the IP address hosting Shaul’s Facebook page was in the U.S., the IDF asked the FBI to help locate whoever (presumably Hamas) had gotten into the page. FBI agents immediately agreed to help and were moving on it when they were ordered by their own senior management to stop.
“Senior law enforcement officials, on condition of anonymity, have told me that the withdrawal of authority to the FBI to retrieve the Facebook records for Israel came from the [U.S.] Attorney General’s office,” Steven Emerson wrote in Israel Hayom.
In other words, from Eric Holder, Wormtongue’s close friend and trusted operative, a wellknown Democrat skunk in his own right already held in contempt of Congress on other matters.

UPDATE: Unidentified “senior officials in the American administration,” on Sunday (Oct. 18) denied declining to help Israel in the matter of the missing soldier, according to Haaretz. The left-wing newspaper put a right-left spin on the report in Israel Hayom accusing anti-Obama rightists of fomenting the issue. The Times of Israel, picking up the Haaretz report, added that the IDF and prime minister’s office had declined to comment on the subject. So take your pick on who to believe.
