President Obama Middle East Speech

I watched Fareed Zakaria GPS this morning (Sunday, May 22, 2011); I paid particular attention to the segment with the panel of young Arab Activists explicating their views on President Obama’s speech regarding Israel and Palestinian peace talks. Each one of those very astute young persons’ had negative comments about Obama’s stance on the peace process.

Before I let everybody know how I really feel, because this really pisses me off; I got to say up-front, I believe every human on this earth deserve to have their GOD given rights to have the same opportunities as any other human being on earth. This doesn’t mean someone, or the government has to give you anything, it means that all of us deserve to play on an equal playing field, rich or poor.

The only knowledge I gained from the President’s speech is that he pissed off both, Israel and Arabs. Seems this man can’t please nobody, the people of color in America are pissed off because they feel the President isn’t doing enough in behalf of their interest; and Israel and Arabs doesn’t feel the President is doing enough in their interest.

It’s a good thing I’m not President, because I’d tell all of you, “”F” all of you, I’m the President of the United States for all the people of the United States. As for the people outside of the United States, I’d boldly state, “I’m the President of the most powerful nation on earth, I’m trying to make it possible for all to come away from the table with something all of us can live with in peace.” If you can’t live with that, then look forward for all the welfare dollars to stop going to foreign countries at the expense of American taxpayers; this goes for all foreign countries, barring none!”

I need to get back to the young Arab Activists I watched this morning. Here’s where I get rough and raw.

During the Civil Rights Movement in the 50’s and 60’s when Black Americans was fighting for their GOD given rights, I don’t remember Black Americans begging any Arabs, Israelis, Germans, Russians, Australians, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, or any other nationality on earth to fight for us. Oh yeah, just in case you don’t know history, during this time the KKK and others was still lynching Blacks.

My point is simple, freedom that’s given to anybody isn’t worth what one would owe to the freedom givers; ask the American Indians, they’ll tell ya. Real freedom has to be fought for to come with any credence of respect after you gain your so-called freedom.

The bottom line is this, oh yeah, before I forget, there was one German that spoke out about the plight of Blacks in America. Hitler did say, “Americans treat Blacks and American Indians as sub-humans, but has the audacity to lecture Germany on how we contend with German Jews.” Is anybody beginning to get my point now?

To gain your freedom, if you’re not willing to give-up blood, sweat, tears, and death, your freedom aint worth it; that’s it in a nutshell. Take it from somebody who lived it, I didn’t read this in no book.
