Part of the “spirit of Purim” is the concept of “turnabout” – that everything bad planned by our enemies to do to the Jews was turned about and happened to them instead. A true comeuppance, if you will. Therefore, we celebrate the Jewish People’s pending tragedy turning into a great victory and salvation.
And so in that spirit, where one thing means another, I have to tell you how much I truly admire US President Barack “Barry” Hussein Obama AKA “Mr. Teflon.” I mean really, Obama is my true Purim President.
Let’s take old Barry’s AIPAC performances. Every time he spoke he said one thing, and a day or two later he “explained” what he “really” said and meant. For example, in 2008 he assured AIPAC’s gathered multitude that he would not allow Iran to acquire nuclear arms, and that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of Israel.
"Let me be clear, Israel's security is sacrosanct,” Presidential candidate Obama declared. “It is non-negotiable…… any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel's identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided.”
