OUTRAGE: Obama Postal Service Stopped Mail Delivery to Israel

By Debbie Schlussel

**** UPDATE: Obama Postal Service Embargo of Israel Continues Nationwide; Woman Couldn’t Send B-Day Card to Granddaughter; Schlussel on the Case ****

Barack Obama didn’t just temporarily stop American planes from landing in Israel. He stopped American mail from being sent there, too. And the problem may still persist, as it did at several Michigan post offices.



I received reports as recently as yesterday that various Detroit-area U.S. Postal Service locations were refusing to accept packages sent to Israel. And I confirmed that this was true. Hopefully, the problem is now fixed, but you should immediately file a complaint and contact the U.S. Postal Service (or me), if your local Postal Service location refuses to send mail for delivery to Israel.

Yesterday, I spoke with Elizabeth Najduch, Communications Program Specialist for the Detroit District of the U.S. Postal Service. I contacted her after I received reports from Jewish people who tried to send packages and other mail to Israel at both the Southfield, Michigan and Farmington Hills, Michigan locations. These people were told that the Postal Service was not sending mail to Israel, and they were refused this service.

Ms. Najduch, of the U.S. Postal Service, confirmed that the reports were true. She told me that when Barack Obama’s FAA, last week, stopped flights from landing in Israel, the U.S. Postal Service also stopped delivery to Israel. But, she also said, that mail embargo was only supposed to last as long as the brief FAA flight embargo. And it should have ended. But nobody at the U.S. Postal Service informed local branches to resume delivery to Israel. Ms. Najduch–who was extremely professional and concerned about the problem–said that as soon as she received complaints yesterday, she informed the local Detroit-area postal branches to resume delivery to Israel.

If you have this problem and are refused mail delivery service to Israel by the U.S. Postal Service, you should call their customer service and file a complaint. But you should also try to contact your local press person for the Postal Service and complain.

We cannot let Barack Obama’s sub rosa punishment of Israel persist.

Time and time again we see that we have the first openly anti-Semitic potus. And the idiot Jews, ultra liberals that they are, vote for this over and over again.

Obama and BDS.

First the FAA.

Then the American embassy in Tel Aviv.

Now the US Postal Service

What is next in Obama’s BDS boycott of Israel??

I don’t believe it’s tied to the FAA embargo. IAM mentioned the Embassy situation here and I think it’s likely to be tied to that. US Citizen’s services have been curtailed, not just visa apps. That means, no birth registrations, applications for Social Security etc. Those are furthermore done at the US Consulate which is no longer near the Damascus Gate but is now in a neighborhood of Jerusalem bordering some of the “East” Jerusalem Arab neighborhoods. It’s unlikely the predominantly Arab staff has been switched to a Jewish one. The method of using these services is to apply online and wait for an appointment. Don’t hold your breath. My husband was going to apply for Social Security early but we’ve decided to pass, for a variety of reasons.

Embassy and Consular staffs are not permitted to ride public transportation anywhere in the country.

FedEx comes to Israel as does DHL. It’s much better to send email and if you want to send a gift, make it money, via PayPal. I wouldn’t try to do a bank to bank transfer because you may arouse suspicion. Before we left in 2008, Bank of America told us WE would have to be present in the lobby to transfer from our own account to Israel. IOW, forget about it. So I was eligible to be a USAA member because once part of the military family, always a member according to them. That is my bank in the US and I get my Social Security, taken early, there. I arranged that before we came. I had just enough time.

People, lighten up. It was an administrative screwup. If Obama were anti-Semitic ALL of the post offices would have refused parcels to Israel.

RB: And you know this how . . .? Are you a USPS insider? Did you check every other post office? Do you think it was an “accident” that they forgot to resume mail to Israel for a week? Also, you miss the point. It was NOT an administrative screw-up in the first place that started this and it may not have been one that it continued. The Obama Administration used the FAA–and now we know, the USPS, too–to punish Israel and help HAMAS. That they forgot to end the embargo on mailing to Israel MAY have been an administrative “forgetfulness.” But you don’t know that and neither do I. DS

    Obama punishing Israel???? And how much money do we send to Isreal each year?

    You people are paranoid.

    RB: Huh? The foreign aid bills originate in Congress. If Obama vetoed the foreign aid package, he’d be vetoing all foreign aid, which he’d never do. And, actually, very little of that money goes to Israel. 85% of all foreign aid to Israel must be spent in the U.S. and mostly goes to defense contractors creating all kinds of jobs. No other country–including the many Muslim nations and HAMAS, which get gazillions in U.S. aid–has such restrictions, and so that’s where the money mostly goes: to Muslims and their lands. DS

R Borlick, if you believe what you said, then you believe the IRS scandal was just two rogue employees in Cincinnati. And if you believe that, . . .

Seriously? Your headline is at the very least misleading. And your information I sun verified. Obama continues, even today during a press conference, in his strong SUPPORT of Israel! Get off the hate and untruths, your blog is rediculous.

J. Thompson on August 1, 2014 at 3:13 pm

Every elected Democrat supported Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Personnel is policy and by supporting Obama they are complicit enablers of his policies,

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

Except delivery to Jewish people. Maybe the USPS should revise the motto.

Way to punish our friends and allies, a certain medication I take for chronic pain which is the only thing to date to give me any relief was invented in Israel. What exactly has Hamas given to the world except terror and misery? To all Israelis out there I apologize on behalf of this lawless regime which also punishes its own citizens. Most of us Americans still stand with you Israel even if our sick government doesn’t.

I wonder what Obama will do next to hurt Israel.

David on August 1, 2014 at 5:21 pm

Guess even khalifa Barry came to figure out that the “optics” on the moslem terror war was not moving in his favor, so he (and comical sidekick Hanoi Hero Kerry) both felt compelled to berate Hamas for breaking the truce. Fear not, he will find ways for businesses, schools, select elevated special interest groups,, etc. to find other means to make the defense of Israel (and the US) more difficult.

Still waiting for some real OPPOSITION from congress — before
everything is lost.

Hans Schaden on August 1, 2014 at 5:57 pm

@ J. Thompson, When Obama says he supports Israel, that’s like when he said if you like your insurance you can keep your insurance. Everything this guy says is a lie. You will know them by their fruits, not their words.

john on August 1, 2014 at 6:33 pm

I tried sending a letter today and was refused by post office in Buellton, CA, who can I complain / or contact ???

Rinat on August 7, 2014 at 11:15 pm

The US airlines that are contracted by the post office to transport mail to Israel suspended service to Israel a day BEFORE the FAA suspended all airlines for 24 hours. Local postmasters have the authority — and the duty — to not accept mail that they have reason to believe might be damaged or delayed

Frank Roper on August 14, 2014 at 6:19 pm

OBAMA postal service?

What dreck…it has been privatised since 1970. All mail goes on commercial planes…which were all…prudently…halted for 24 hours.
