Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister has called for the bombing Of Israel.

Michael Rubin reports at Commentary Contentions

After assuring both Libyans and Turks that Turkey was not involved in airstrikes on Libya, Deputy Prime Minister Bülent Ar?nç, of Turkey, said, “We wish that the United Nations had made such resolutions and countries had taken action in the face of incidents in Gaza, Palestine and the other regions

This is exactly the problem I thought might arise from President Obama’s endorsement of the trendy principle of “Responsibility to Protect”. In yesterday’s blog, “The Rise of Samantha Power and the risks for the American-Israel relationship,” I speculated that the rationale Obama adopted to bomb Libya bore the risks of others adopting the same “principle” to justify punishing, if not bombing, Israel.

I wrote:

It is not hard to envision that this R2P concept, swirling through the United Nations and in international foreign policy circles, can one day be applied against Israel when that nation is forced to respond from attacks coming from the West Bank, Gaza, and Lebanon. Terrorists hide behind civilians; Israeli actions to defend themselves often happen in densely populated areas where civilian deaths are almost inevitable – despite all the precautions Israel takes to prevent them.

And noted Omri Ceren’s excellent analysis of the history of this amorphous concept of the Responsibility to Protect and how it has already been used to criticize Israel. It seems that adversaries of Israel are eager to apply this concept to attack Israel, metaphorically and diplomatically, if not militarily (yet).

  1. Just around the time when it looked as if Egypt would be removing a tyrant from government and replacing it with the Muslim Brotherhood (still very much a possibility), I speculated that Israel would be threatened by it’s neighbors.

    Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister has pretty much validated my speculation.

    Once the Muslim Brotherhood takes Egypt, and Libya, the road will be paved for international war between Muslim countries surrounding Israel and Israel itself.

    Too bad the Muslim populations of Europe will be rioting and causing great damage to their host countries for the European nations to do much about it.

    All Muslim neighborhoods are fifth columns for the Islamization of the west. All Muslim countries surrounding Israel are arming themselves up for a war with the only democracy in the Middle East.

    Israel seems to be the only democratic nation that clearly sees Islam as a political force, which is a shame since the free world has embraced the millions of false refugees from Muslim countries as if they were truly at risk in their homelands. What is at risk is the free world at the hands of Muslims who live here.

  2. Frank Gaffney speculates in today’s column about a way that Obama’s precedent in seeking UN permission to bomb Libya can lead to the US or others bombing Israel.

  3. Bulent Arinc, the lying sack of camel dung peddling nazi fiction as reality in its (not his) native patch of Arabian desert, Erdoganistan.

    I hope Benyamin Netanyahu and his allies in the Israeli government are preparing for a worst-case scenario to deal with the bedouin savages of Arinc’s ilk the way they ought to be dealt with. Israel has survived countless attempts to annihilate her and, so long as her citizens’ will to survive proves stronger than their concerns for that so-called “international community”, she should be able to defeat her enemies.
