Must-Watch New Documentary: 'Absolutely Uncertain'Topics: Political News and commentaries
This newly released documentary explores how a 23-year-old Israeli-American who voted for President Barack Obama in 2008 came to view the administration as dangerous for the Jewish state.
"This time around Obama won't be getting my vote ..."
Sponsored by RightChange, a nonprofit political advocacy group established to hold "America's elected leaders accountable for their actions," the film follows Irina as she reviews the Obama administration's dealings in the Middle East, particularly as they impact Israel.
The Washington Free Beacon has reports:
"Israelis, Jews living in the U.S. need to understand that if Israel is important to them, they have to look closely at what President Obama and his administration has done," said Alan Peterson, the film's director. "We're hoping to demonstrate with this piece why voters should look very closely [at Obama's record] before they cast their vote."More here.
Opening with an ominous clamor and images of gas masks, the film goes on to quote President Abraham Lincoln: "A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have."
Over nearly 20 minutes, experts, journalists, and Jewish voters build the case that Obama cannot be relied upon to protect Israel as a conflict over Iran's suspected nuclear arms program becomes increasingly likely.
"I don't know how many people realize this," says Irina, "but today, as we speak, Israelis are lining up for gas masks and cleaning out their bomb shelters."
The film arrives just a day after Iran's genocidal president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stood before the United Nations in New York and declared that Israel will be eliminated.
[...] According to the documentary, at every critical turn in the Middle East the Obama administration has dropped the ball, failing to foster democracy and impede the spread of radicalism.
"With the Middle East growing more and more hostile I think America's support for Israel should get even stronger, yet the president has been sending mixed signals," Irina says, referring to Obama's failure to visit Israel and recognize Jerusalem as its capital city.
Obama has "minimized the important of the [U.S.-Israel] relationship and minimized the threat of Iran," said director Peterson. "The U.S. relationship with Israel has become increasingly important and increasingly troubled" with Obama in office.
