Is America about to learn who Israel is?
Picture from: ABCnews
Obama is talking a two state solution and now: Iran reentering the community of nations.
The latter might become a reality. But the former relies on the ‘People of the Book’, and they have a covenant with God.
And they have raised a whole nation accordingly.
They say: Obama can talk and talk and its okay.
Eventually push will come to shove, and the obvious and only solution is to undermine the USA so that it is reoccupied with its own problems. Could it be another war? Or things getting worse in Afghanistan? Or Obama’s citizenship being questioned in the media? Who knows what it will be? Some muck created or dug up, presented so that everyone sucks it up, no one realizing what it is camouflaging. Like False Flags and the bailout, swallowed hook line and sinker.
Just like Clinton had the Monika Lewinsky story break out just after he had a meeting with Netanyahu.
Imagining Bibi, Lieberman or Barak yielding self determination and a viable state to the Palestinians is not plausible.
It all portends to the demise of the US. Better that than Israel getting hammered by the US.
And Obamas strong words, don’t they sound like Pelosi’s ‘withdrawing from Iraq’.
youtube video of Obama addressing the Turkish Parliament here, the part containing Israel and Iran:
Haaretz has a very wishful editorial called A clear message from Obama :
… There is no doubt that the fresh breeze from the White House is a welcome change in the Middle East, a region where many observers viewed the Bush administration as a hostile entity.
This is a change that Israel must internalize, and it could not have come at a better time …
A more sobering comment from the Progressive review web site:
… despite his declaration of non-war with Islam we remain at war in Iraq. We are at war against Iran and Syria (an embargo is an act of war). We are funding Israel’s occupation of Palestine. And we are escalating our war in Afghanistan and Pakistan. –source–
On the ground this is some of what is happening from today’s news reports:
- Israeli soldiers physically abused a PRCS medical team during its humanitarian mission
- Israeli military patrols storm Tulkarem ‘to buy a hookah’
- Israeli soldiers force Palestinians to strip naked at checkpoint
- Israel chokes off West Bank for holidays
- Israeli police kill Palestinian at Jerusalem demolition site
Just saw this Jerusalem Post headline on Niqnaqs blog
Israel not taking orders from Obama
“Israel does not take orders from [Barack] Obama,” Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) said on Monday, responding to an earlier statement by the US president in which he reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to all previous understandings between Israel and the Palestinians, including the process launched at Annapolis, Maryland, in 2007.
Erdan, who is also the liaison between the cabinet and the Knesset, praised Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman (Israel Beiteinu), who only last week said Israel was not bound by the Annapolis talks because it had never been approved by the cabinet or the Knesset.
“In voting for [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu the citizens of Israel have decided that they will not become the US’s 51st state,” –source–
