There are chilling parallels between the ObamaCare healthcare plan disaster that has left millions of Americans without their healthcare security and the ObamaCare strategy that is being applied to Israel’s essential security interests with Iran and the Palestinian Arabs. The latter also shows dire signs of impending disaster for millions of Israelis.
Israel is having its national security interests managed and adjusted by US President Barack Obama and US Secretary of State John Kerry in both the Iranian and Palestinian issues. As with ObamaCare, Israel is coming out with its security health damaged and impaired.
Recalling Nancy Pelosi instructing Congress men to sign the health bill and then study the details later, we just witnessed a repeat with the Geneva agreement of the P5+1 led by America. Following covert negotiations between Obama’s agent, Valerie Jarrett, and the Iranians, Kerry was rushed to Switzerland to sign the deal for America. We were told that this deal would rollback Iran’s nuclear program. It didn’t. Iran gets to keep its heavy water plant in Arak. It’s centrifuges are still in place, spinning to enrich uranium despite six UN Security Council resolutions banning such a program - resolutions signed by America. Neither did it disqualify Iran’s ongoing off-site nuclear equipment manufacturing and development, including its nuclear weapons research facility.
The fate of Americans health is in the details of ObamaCare. Israel’s fate is in the details of the Geneva deal. Neither bode well for our citizens.
Recalling Obama’s lie of the year, “You can keep your health plan, you can keep your doctor,” let’s look at Obama's promises to Israel about a nuclear Iran.
Obama – “There is nothing in this agreement that grants Iran a right to enrich.”  
When you give them your approval to enrich uranium to any level it confines six UN Security Council resolutions strictly banning Iran from any enrichment program to the trashcan.
Obama – “We are stopping the advancement of the Arak plutonium reactor.” Stopping the advancement is containment, not rollback.
Obama said in 2012, “Make no mistake: a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained. That is why the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.” In the same year, President Obama told AIPAC that the containment of a nuclear Iran is not an option.
Now, after the signing of the Geneva deal, Obama said of the chances of eliminating Iran’s nuclear progress and preventing them from reaching nuclear breakout: “If you asked… I wouldn’t say that it’s more than 50/50.”
The White House is gambling our lives with a toss of the nuclear coin.
This was confirmed by Colin Kahl, who served as Obama’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for the Middle East until December 2011. He wrote,“If all else fails, the Administration could be forced to shift toward containment of Iran regardless of current preferences.”
That is not good enough for Israel.
On to the Palestinian problem. The false ObamaCare promises apply to Israel’s vital security needs.
“You get to keep your security, you can keep your IDF” is being replaced by “We will take care of your security. We will supply the troops.”
Under Obama, Kerry’s proposal that US Marines will keep the peace between Israel and the Palestinians is a non-starter. 
Israel is unwilling to have American soldiers do Israel’s dirty work. Neither do we want to put American boys at risk or in the position that they are facing Palestinian terrorists and suicide bombers. The Obama proposal is way out of line. It would also endanger America if American soldiers are seen defending Israel against Palestinian aggression. And would these marines prevent Israel’s IDF from going after Palestinian terrorists and rocket launchers?
Send us the equipment and let us do the job. We are the ones who will do the defending and dying for Israel, not you guys.
So, please. No more ObamaCare when it comes to our security, and our lives. As most Americans are saying over their health plans: we know what’s good for us, much better than the Obama Administration.
