Foreign Policy: Soon after President Obama announced plans to normalize relations with Cuba, Sen. Marco Rubio called him the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter. Cuban officials are now proving Rubio right.
As soon as Obama made his announcement, it became clear he'd pretty much given up the store and gotten nothing in return.
Cuba didn't have to make any concessions on freedom of speech, democratic elections, a market economy. It didn't have to turn over U.S. fugitives, including a convicted cop killer, whom it's been protecting for years.
Indeed, as we noted in this space after Obama's announcement, Raul Castro was soon bragging about how he'd struck a deal with Obama "without a single sacrifice of our principles."
Castro apparently feels no need to do so in the future, either. After the opening round of talks, Cuban diplomat Josefina Vidal told the AP that "changes in Cuba aren't negotiable."
Now, to add insult to injury, Castro has started issuing his own set of demands.
In a speech at the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States summit in Costa Rica on Wednesday, he said there'd be no normalization of relations unless the U.S. ends the trade embargo, closes the naval base at Guantanamo Bay and takes Cuba off the list of state sponsors of terror.
Oh, and he also wants the U.S. to stop allowing Cubans to stay in this country just because they manage to set foot on American soil. That's been causing a brain drain from the island, you see.
Castro has even told Obama what to do, saying in his speech the president should "use with resolve his broad executive powers to substantially change the scope of the blockade, even without the Congress' decision."
Why shouldn't Castro be so brazen? Obama has already shown his hand. So Castro knows he can keep upping the bid, assuming — most likely correctly — that Obama will do anything to keep the normalization process from folding.
If this were the only time Obama has miserably failed at the bargaining table, it would be bad enough. But it's just the latest in an continuing and ominous pattern — from his dealings with Iran, his prisoner exchange with the Taliban, his phony "red line" in Syria, his "reset" with Russia, etc.
Come to think of it, saying Obama is the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter is actually an insult to Carter.
Jews News is understandably incensed by a World Tribune report that the Obama administration intervened to block an investigation into alleged Iranian involvement in the murder of 85 men, women and children in a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1994.
“Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman was assassinated for pursuing the truth,” Jews News online service claimed. “Nisman, who had filed a report alleging that Argentine President Cristina Kirchner, Foreign Minister Hector Timerman and other officials had conspired to cover up Iran’s involvement in the massacre, was murdered the night before he was to present his findings to Argentina’s Congress. The Argentine government claimed at first that he had committed suicide. But honest people know that he was murdered — probably by Iranian agents with the collusion of the Argentine police officers who were supposed to protect him.”
Jews News called on American Jews to stop supporting Obama, noting the 74 percent of Jews voted to Obama in his first election bid and somewhat less in this second. Not pulling any punches, the news service blasted Jewish supporters of Obama. “…In the face of Obama’s obvious hostility to Jews and Israel…” it said, “Jews who substitute progressive politics for Judaism invariably become complicit in the persecution of the Jewish people.”
The World Tribune expose comes at a time when Obama is asking Congress and Americans to trust him to negotiate a deal with Iran to prevent its producing nuclear weapons.
The gist of the WT report follows:
The United States pressed Argentina to end its investigation of Iranian complicity in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in which nearly 100 people were killed.

2 Timothy 2:5
(5) And also if anyone competes in athletics, he is not crowned unless he competes according to the rules.
The apostle takes this metaphor from athletics. He advises Timothy that, if he is striving to win in his ministry, he will not be crowned unless he disciplines himself to follow the rules.
In games (whether it is a card game, croquet out in the backyard, basketball, or whatever), one is often confronted with the opportunity to bend or to break the rules. The player must discipline himself, or face the penalties - or even find himself disqualified. If one breaks the rules in football, he receives a 5-yard, 10-yard, or 15-yard penalty. In some games, the rule-breaker just gets thrown right out! The athlete, then, must discipline himself.
Yet, Paul is using this in regard to members of God's church. If we desire to be crowned, we will have to strive within the rules. We will have to discipline ourselves. In Timothy's case, the rules are scattered throughout Paul's epistle to him. In terms of the Sabbath and the annual feast days, they are the only days in the entire Bible that God designates as "holy." They are part of "the rules."
God never gives His approval to Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday, but only the seventh day, the Sabbath. He never gives His approval to Halloween, Christmas, Easter, and all of the other manmade holidays, but only the ones He points out to us in Leviticus 23. If we are going to strive for the mastery within the rules, they are what we will have to live with and use in the proper way.
“ I am a Iranian by birth and of my Islamic faith. I am also an American Citizen and I sek to help change America to be a more Islamic country. My faith guides me and I feel like it is going well in the transition of using freedom of religion in America against itself.”
