Samantha Power, Obama’s pick as America’s Ambassador to the UN, will fit right in

Samantha Power has been a notorious critic of Israel for years and that, naturally, makes her well-qualified under President Obama’s criteria to serve in such a crucial post. She will be welcomed with open arms at the United Nations.

We at American Thinker have been warning about her influence with Barack Obama since 2008 (see Samantha Power and Obama’s Foreign Policy Team).

But her bit of nastiness seems to be tinged with a bit of anti-Semitism as well.

When concerns arose in 2008 regarding Barack Obama and his views towards Israel it generated wrath from Ms. Power, who was a key foreign policy adviser to candidate Obama. She let loose in a radio interview while in Europe, “So much of it is about: ‘Is he going to be good for the Jews?”  Her writings and sayings are laced with more of anti-Semitism…

…Her adherence to the Soros-funded principle of Responsibility to Protect as an international policy can be used as a cudgel against Israel when it comes to the Palestinians and any actions Israel may be compelled to take in Lebanon to defend herself from Hezb’allah (now busy committing war crimes in Syria at the behest of the mullahs in Iran).

Ms. Power also derided concerns about Iran’s nuclear weapons program in a Time magazine column, stating that it was a figment of the imagination conjured up and promoted by George Bush to gin up pressure on Iran . She counseled, what else, outreach and engagement not further pressure. She will be great at the United Nations: great for Iran, great for Hezb’llah, great for Hamas.

She will be widely welcomed in that hotbed of hatred.
