I’ve always thought in the back of my mind that President Barack Obama is mentally ill. Supposedly we’re to believe that he’s an intellectual genius among men, I’ve never seen it, but for some of the things he’s said to be accepted one has to suspend disbelief. Like when Obama recently said that his administration has been “scandal free“, even the most casual observer can name at least three Obama scandals of the multitude that exist. You have to clear your mind of what you have experienced over the last eight years in order to accept a statement like that.
Now we have the president, with one foot already out the door, lecturing the State of Israel that they cannot be a Jewish state and a democracy, as if one has anything to do with the other. If you know the true history of Israel then you know that there is an industry alive today that is anti Israel and is involved in a daily rewriting of said history.
For Barack Obama to make such a statement shows he is either ignorant of Israeli history or mentally ill. I would let him decide which.

Barack Obama told reporters in his final press conference as president Wednesday that Israel cannot remain both a Jewish state and democratic.
Obama first stated that because Israel and Palestine “wouldn’t actually arrive at a final status agreement,” his goal as mediator “was to reserve the possibility of a two-state solution because we do not see an alternative to it.” (VIDEO: John Kerry Says Israel Can’t Be Jewish And Democratic)
“I’ve said this directly to Prime Minister Netanyahu,” he continued. “I’ve said it inside of Israel. I’ve said it to Palestinians as well.”
“I don’t see how this issue gets resolved in a way that maintains Israel as both Jewish and a democracy.”
“If you do not have two states, then in some form or fashion you are extending an occupation, functionally you end up having one state in which millions of people are disenfranchised and operate as second-class occupants or residents,” he added. “You can’t even call them citizens.”
