Monday evening, the Glenn Beck Program brought you a thought-provoking video positing why President Barack Obama is the most anti-Israel president in the country's history. Opening with footage from three unprovoked wars of aggression waged against Israel by its Arab neighbors -- the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, commonly known as Israel's War of Independence, the 1967 Six Day War, and the Yom Kippur War of 1973 -- the narrator notes Israel's enemies -- from Turkey to Egypt and Gaza to Iran -- are on the rise.

Reminding us that Israel is surrounded by hostile regimes with at least 50,000 rockets at their disposal, the mini documentary also shows how young children, indoctrinated by radical mullahs, are bred to hate, often chanting verses from the Quran that specifically instruct Muslims to "kill the Jews wherever they may hide" -- even "behind the stone or tree."

It is "now more than ever," the narrator states, that Israel needs its ally. Every American president since Israel's creation has reaffirmed the special relationship shared by the two countries until the election of President Barack Obama, who, according to the video, has distinguished his hatred for Israel through his own words and deeds.

From publicly castigating Israel over building settlement communities in Jerusalem -- Israel's religious and historic homeland  -- to publicly telling Israel it must "return" to its indefensible "1967 borders" -- which are not borders at all but rather 1949 armistice lines -- no president, says the narrator, has ever been more hostile to the Jewish state.  The video also reminds the viewer how Obama pressured Israel to apologize to Turkey over the first flotilla incident and later refused to aid opposition forces in Iran and Syria while helping hard-line Islamist dissidents in Libya and Egypt, giving rise to the Israel-hostile Muslim Brotherhood.

It should also be noted that the Muslim Brotherhood's spiritual leader, who has lead prayers for millions of worshippers in Egypt, has called on the Brotherhood and its followers to "finish" what Hitler started.

In addition, since the fall of Muammar Gadhafi, Libya is missing 20,000 surface to air missiles, many of which have turned up in the Sinai.

Obama's actions, according to the video, are "reminiscent" of Jimmy Carter's role in forcing the Shah of Iran to step down. What ensued then was nothing short of tragic, as a cultured, educated society reverted to the Stone Age.

Now, with the fall of Hosni Mubarak, who at least kept a cold peace with Israel, Egypt has rekindled its 30-year severed relationship with Iran, ending its arms blockade of Gaza and turning a blind eye when the Israeli embassy in Cairo was stormed and overtaken by Muslim Brotherhood operatives.

This series of events could have been prevented, suggests the video, if Obama had taken a stand in defense of America's stalwart ally, Israel. Instead, Hamas is now emboldened, and has resumed its rocket-fire into Israel. To make matters worse, Obama, in the largest weapons sale in U.S. history, sold tanks to Egypt and outfitted Saudi Arabia with fighter jets and attack helicopters.

All the while, Iran races toward the development of nuclear weapons with the clear and stated goal of "wiping Israel off the map," unimpeded by the White House.
