Friend or foe? Do you know that the Obama Administration leaked Israel's plan to attack Iran from Azerbaijan in 2012 to the Iranis? Reliable pundits such as Doug Ross are not only saying that John Kerry is not telling the truth, but that the entire US-Iran nuclear agreement is for Iran's benefit, to "protect it from Israel". Sorry, but the Administration in Washington, DC doesn't exactly like us...
Back in March, we wrote, " In the world of the lie-laden lexicon, "anti-Bibi" is really "anti-Israel", and "anti-Israel" is none other than anti-Semitism."
In trying to understand why Obama loathes Israel, Erik Rush says, "Obama and his ilk are an amalgam of radicals in the ‘Sixties mold, whether Marxist-Leninists, Maoists, Structural Marxists, black and Latino nationalists, Marxist feminists, Nation of Islam, or Sunni Muslim Islamists. All of these groups are intensely hateful...So the sentiments of a Barack Obama (or an Eric Holder, Van Jones, etc.) will always lie with the Islamists..."
If Obama doesn't like Jews other than his leftist Judenrat, imagine how he despises Torah-loyal Jews in the Land of Israel. He wants us thwarted, to say it nicely...
Obama and his State Department, without asking right or wrong, forced Israel into an inopportune ceasefire with Gaza last year, before the cleanup work was done. Hamas, like a bacteria that wasn't fully eradicated, is now coming back stronger. Obama and his State Department, in pressuring Israel to refrain from building in Judea and Samaria, including Beitar Illit, Kiryat Sefer and Efrat, have worsened an already acute housing shortage in Israel. You can find young couples here living in garages and other make-shift dwellings.
From the emuna vantage point, Obama is a mere pawn in Hashem's hands. Rabbi Yehuda Zev Leibowitz said before he died that Bibi won't be allowed (from Above) to attack Iran. Obama and his underlings in the State Department have been merely Hashem's obstacle to Bibi, for Hashem - for His good reasons - doesn't want the attack on Iran. Yet, if Obama has the pipedream that he and the Ayatollas will build a new Middle East sans Israel and the Jews, he's in for a tremendous surprise:
Tosephot (tractate Avoda Zara 2b) says that before Moshiach comes, Iran will fight the USA. So, Obama's pipedream of cooperating with the Ayatollas will backfire in his face. What's more, Khumenei makes no effort to hide his hatred toward the USA and everything that the current US Administration stands for.
And talking about backfires, Obama thought that he was playing a home game when in Kenya, trying to force his anti-Hashem same-sex ideologies on the Kenyans. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta mowed him down on the spot, elegantly but with total conviction, saying: "You cannot force on Kenyans a way of life that they do not want to lead."

The more we strengthen ourselves in emuna, the more we can be assured that no Iranian nuke will ever fall on our holy soil. In the words of my esteemed rabbi and teacher Rabbi Yitzchak Berkowitz shlit'a who was my mentor at the Aish HaTorah Yeshiva in Jerusalem, "Hashem isn't gathering the exiles from the four corners of the earth to slaughter them here in Israel, Heaven forbid." Hashem wants to bring Moshiach - soon - but He wants us to prepare ourselves in earnest. Everything that is happening now in current events is geared to further that end. On the way, expect some interesting surprises, such as the schemes of scoundrels backfiring in their faces.
Don't think that there's nothing you can do - there's plenty:
1. Make Aliya now and claim your rightful inheritance in the Holy Land;
2. If you can't make Aliya at this time, pray daily to make Aliya, and meanwhile help spread emuna! That way, you justify whatever you're doing outside the Land of Israel. This should be done with dedication if you want it to be effective enough to protect you and your family.
3. Strengthen yourself in emuna.
4. Be very careful about the mitzvoth between man and fellow man.
Good days are in store for Israel, G-d willing - wait and see.
