I've Been Thinking:
President's Obama visited Buchenwald, the German concentration camp.
The president was accompanied by Elie Weisel, one of the most famous Holocaust survivors and the person largely responsible for keeping the memory alive by educating the world to the universal lessons and horror of the Holocaust.
There was method to Obama's visit to Buchenwald with Weisel, just as there was method to his Cairo speech.
Buchenwald served as an intimate connection to the president's visit in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
Obama was only several miles from Israel when he visited Cairo - yet he chose not to visit. He was very critical of Israel calling the state an occupier and brutal oppressor. The very next day he goes to a German concentration camp and continues his thesis saying that those who forget the Holocaust are ignorant.
The criticism of Israel and shunning of Israel was counterbalanced by a visit with Weisel to Buchenwald.
Obama is attempting to drive a wedge between Israel and the Diaspora.
He embraced a basic universally accepted concept of the Holocaust - and rejected the deniers.
He used the Holocaust as a unifying concept - at the same time seriously criticizing Israel.
He is trying to show his respect for one holy cow - while desecrating the other.
He is driving a wedge between the Jews and the lovers of Israel - and critics of Israel.
Nothing Obama does is without purpose.
Everything Obama does is perfectly scripted.
