´Peace is possible,´
Obama insists in Middle East

Associated Press, by Julie Pace

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/21/2013 5:25:13 PM

JERUSALEM -- Insisting "peace is possible," President Barack Obama on Thursday prodded both Israelis and Palestinians to return to long-stalled negotiations with few, if any, pre-conditions, softening his earlier demands that Israel stop building settlements in disputed territory. The president made his appeal just hours after rockets fired from Hamas-controlled Gaza landed in a southern Israeli border town, a fresh reminder of the severe security risks and tensions that have stymied peace efforts for decades. Obama, on his second day in the Middle East, shuttled between Jerusalem and Ramallah, reaching out to the public as well as political leaders.

Uh huh. And maybe Elvis, JFK, and the Tooth fairy will come back and help you make it happen.

What a Maroon.

So he says, as rockets are fired by one of "the parties" into Israeli residential neighborhoods while Barry the Weak [AKA Barry the Moron] has his photo-op in the Holy Land.

You could never sell this as a movie script. Never. As they say, fiction, unlike life, must be believable.

Julie´s as ignorant as Obama. The Palestinians want much, much more than a return to ´67 borders. They want a return to pre ´48 so they can conquer Israel. All Abbas has to do is recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

President Obama is simply reaffirming support for a two-state solution. That is a fair solution. Jews and Arabs both have claims to national states in the region of Palestine. Arabs have been there some 1000 years.
No Israeli settlements in Palestinian state territory! Also Palestinians must recognize Israel´s right to exist.
btw criticism of Likud policies is NOT anti-Semitism.

Here is more proof that Obama is sincere. Of course it is also proof that he is a fool - but we can be confident he is a sincere fool, for nobody who realized how absurd his ideas are about the Middle East problem could possibly say such things in public for fear of sounding like a fool. He is absolutely clueless. He has no idea, none whatsoever, that he does not know what he is talking about. And because he is a fool, he is incorrigible. He cannot learn. He is fated to return to his folly like a dog to its vomit.

Can any Obama supporter tell me one thing he has been honest about other than things that are detrimental to the United States - ie, energy production (real, not wind fairy dust), gun control, immigration - anything at all.
Given the above why in the world would anyone believe what he had to say in that speech that the Israelis were madly cheering. I wonder if those folks will cheer as the palestinians, at best, evict them from their homes and, at worst, well, think nazi Germany.

Hearing the constant applause on my kitchen TV, I got up from the computer to see what audience could possibly give Obama that kind of a reception. It sure wasn´t the Knesset where Clinton and George W. went to address the Israelis. It was a room full of adolescent minded college students, lapping up every word of the pablum he´s fed the masses every stage of his political career. Pure emotionalism for the warm and fuzzy crowd no different than his adoring voters back home. How is it possible for Israelis of any age facing annihilation to fall for this?

Obama uses the proven strategy of a well-trained radical, rabel-rousing,community organizer. He goes to a middle eastern country. Incites the youth to over-throw the existing government. Then goes home and leaves the smoldering mess in his wake. I can´t fathom why no one has ever accused or convicted him of this practice. It seems very clear. On an unrelated topic; the bible says this about the antichrist "For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them" and "Through his cunning He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity."

As others have long noted and commented upon, if radical Leftists like Obama and others exerted a mere fraction of the energy and good will they regularly devote to trying to befriend an bridge gaps and compomise and accommodate foreign critics and downright declared foes of the United States to working constructively with their domestic Republican opposition, American politics would be a much nicer and productive activity. It is perfectly amazing that people who cannot or will not get along with Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, not to mention John Boehner et al., actually believe they are going to achieve breakthroughs and great strides with foreigners who have agendas and interests contrary to those of America.

Yet this curious naivete is completely characteristic of Leftist fantasy ideology. It seems to be a part of the ideology itself. As far back as one cares to look American Leftists have been leaving no stone unturned to appease, apologize for, accommodate, reason with, adapt to and compromise with foreign enemies of America and Western values. The case of Joseph Stalin and the USSR is but one of the most outstanding and disgusting examples. We should not forget, either, how few are the former Stalinists and USSR apologists on the Left who have ever publicly and unequivocally proclaimed their mea culpa and confessed that they were, after all, gravely mistaken. This is because more than many people realize do not accept that they were mistaken.

Obama and his gang are political amateurs who do not understand how the world works and who cannot even get along with their domestic political opponents, whom they hate with a fury several orders of magnitude greater than any animosity they entertain for manifest and declared enemies of America.

They "understand" how the world should work.

Climate change is damaging fish brains and
causing them to lose their survival instinct,
researchers warn

Fish are losing their survival instinct as the world´s oceans become more acidic because of climate change, researchers have claimed. The study confirms laboratory experiments showing that the behavior of reef fishes can be seriously affected by increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the ocean. Carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere is absorbed into ocean waters, where it dissolves and lowers the pH of the water. The new study is the first to analyze the sensory impairment of fish from CO2 seeps, where pH is similar to what climate models forecast for surface waters by the turn of the century. ´These results verify our laboratory

White babies just 15 months old show racial

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Washington -- A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn´t know about it or couldn´t get a drone there in time to strike. U.S. officials won´t comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States. In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda´s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen.

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ´no idea´ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate. Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday - and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year. He also says he doesn´t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife. ´I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,´ it reads. ´As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea

Democrats on healthcare: Reuters/Ipsos poll

WASHINGTON - Americans increasingly think Democrats have a better plan for healthcare than Republicans, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after the White House announced that more people than expected had signed up for the "Obamacare" health plan. Nearly one-third of respondents in the online survey released on Tuesday said they prefer Democrats´ plan, policy or approach to healthcare, compared to just 18 percent for Republicans. This marks both an uptick in support for Democrats and a slide for Republicans since a similar poll in February. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius stepped down last week after overseeing the law´s

You can tell it´s an election year because so many noncrises are suddenly urgent priorities. Real median household income is still lower than it was in 2007, the smallest share of Americans is working since 1978, and the Russians are marching west, but Democrats are training fire on race, gender and the grievances of identity politics. "We have this congenital disease, which is in midterm elections we don´t vote at the same rates," President Obama said at a Houston fundraiser the other day. He means that the Obama Democrats are now what they call the "coalition of the ascendent," made

CBO Dire Debt Warnings Show
Nation´s Democrat Future

Big Government: The Congressional Budget Office warns of a terrifying, unprecedented level of national debt in the coming decade. That fits nicely with Democrats´ objectives, but not with our nation´s founding principles. Andrew Jackson, who in 1835 succeeded in paying off the national debt, was famous for considering debt slavery. The current fiscal path the U.S. is on does indeed lead to slavery, but the slave masters of the future will be well-heeled politicians and federal bureaucrats, not plantation owners. The CBO´s new budget projections contain an eerie warning that we are on path from today´s already unfathomable $17.7 trillion in gross

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
