For your information, Obama was sent from Heaven.
When President Barack Obama won in 2008, many saw the election as historic. His supporters saw it as rare opportunity to usher in a new era in American politics and citizenship.
Instead, even Democrats will agree, partisanship in Washington, DC is on the rise, the economy has a long road ahead for recovery and “hope has been tested,” as Obama said at his convention speech.
But one rabbi, known for staunch right-wing opinions, sees the President as “an emissary of the Divine Providence.”
The often confrontational Israeli Chabad Rabbi Dovid Meir Drukman, Rabbi of the Haifa suburb of Kiryat Motzkin, has penned a sarcastic op-ed about Israel-U.S. relations.
In the article, Rabbi Drukman said he saw the reported rift between the 2 countries over how to deal with a nuclear ambitious Iran as a blessing in disguise.
Haaretz said Obama had rejected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request for a meeting in Washington next week – a report White House spokesman Tommy Vietor denies, saying no such request was made or rejected.
Netanyahu criticized what he called the world’s failure to spell out what would provoke a U.S.-led military strike against Iranian nuclear facilities and the lack of “red lines” being set for Tehran, AP reported.
“Let us give thanks to Obama and his cronies who are only leading us to fulfil what it says “Blessed is the man who trusts in Hashem and whose hope Hashem is”,” Drukman quoted from Jeremiah 17:7.
The rabbi went on to mention the ancient Egyptian King Pharaoh that our sages said has “brought the hearts of Israel to their father in heaven. The wicked Pharaoh was the emissary to awaken the Jews to do teshuva.”
“The “sincere friendship” (of the nations of the world) is being exposed as to what they really mean –Heaven forbid and may it never occur– to throw us to the dogs,” he said.
Rabbi Drukman mentioned a story of a Chassidic doctor who purposely hesitated to respond to a medical emergency which he saw was not curable, leading the patient’s daughter to cry out to G-d for help.
“America, our ‘good friend’ and only support in a natural way, is indifferent to our situation and is revealed as a broken reed,” he wrote. “We are left alone as one sheep among 70 wolves.”
