Two popular American video bloggers unleashed a verbal fusillade on Thursday at President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry over their recent treatment of Israel.

The duo — sisters Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, who go by the moniker “Diamond and Silk” — are former Democrats who gained viral attention during the recent presidential campaign as loquacious supporters of Republican Donald Trump.

“I do know that Kerry must be slippin’ in all of that Heinz ketchup, because he’s trippin’,” Hardaway said in reference to Kerry’s speech on Wednesday in which he assailed Israeli settlement construction.

“Israel is our ally, so that means we have to have their back,” she went on to say. “Obama looks like he may be out of touch. He was out of touch with this election, he was out of touch with the American people and now he is out of touch with Israel.”

    In all the Arab/Muslim countries there are maybe 500 Jews left with the exception of Morocco. But Israel has over one and one quarter of a million Arabs who live there in peace with all the benefits all Israelis receive. The Arabs have a Supreme court Justice in Israel and many Arab members of the Israeli Parliament, there are also Arab mayors and Arab Political parties. Can you show me any of this type of treatment of Jews in the Arab/Muslim countries? The Arabs/Muslims controlled and occupied Spain for over 700 years, how come they do not demand Spain as Arab/Muslim territories.
    The U.S. is fairly a new country in the past 250 years. All that occurred after Americans killed the American Indians who are the indigenous people of the Americas. The Americans fought numerous wars against Mexico and its occupiers and now claim Texas, California, etc. as their country. The same applies to numerous European countries that have taken territories from other nations and now claim it as theirs.

    Diamond and Silk know what is real and what is strange. Thank goodness for these sensible people who know the definition of “ally” and who know a knife when they see one. Obama’s views on Israel are so nuanced and twisted that he starts out purporting to favor them and ends up knifing them. Perhaps I am being naive – perhaps he knew he was going for Israel’s jugular, like throwing a burning match into a house on leaving it for the last time. Perhaps he thinks he is helping Israel by forcing it to do what is in their long term best interests. However, he has forced them in the other direction while assuring bad repercussions, Since he failed to persuade Israel, he decided to bully Israel. This is WRONG even if Obama’s strategy is right (and who knows the answer to that one?)
