The Munich Betrayal of 1938 & the Washington Betrayal of 2011

The Munich Agreement was a bargain between Nazi Germany, and its allies [sic], Italy, the Western Powers of France, and the United Kingdom.  The bargain, or pact, allowed Germany to take over the borderlands of Czechoslovakia known as the Sudetenland.  British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain signed an agreement with the Devil, Adolf Hitler, and gave away the sovereign territory of another nation, for a promise of peace.  We all know how that worked out.

Today, some seventy three years later, our own president proposed the same thing.  He wants Israel to give up the territory it acquired after being attacked in 1967 (the Six Day War).   Israel would be left in a defenseless position against its unstable neighbors if this ever comes to pass.  They have all called for the annihilation of Israel and the Jews.  History surely does repeat itself.  Many people have already said that President Obama threw Israel under the bus today.  I disagree – It was a freight train.

We will see how this all plays out in the coming weeks and months.  There have already been many expressions of outrage and bewilderment about the president’s motives.  Does he really believe Israel’s neighbors can be trusted?  Is he that naive?  Or does he have other motives?  We’ll just have to see who stands up as time goes by.  And just to make it even more interesting, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu,  will be in Washington for talks with Obama tomorrow.   I’d like to be a fly on that wall!  ADB
