Barack Obama´s first trip to
Israel as President in jeopardy

Telegraph [UK], by Robert Tait

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 3/3/2013 4:22:37 PM

The Israeli prime minister was granted a two-week extension by Shimon Peres, Israel´s president, after missing Saturday´s deadline to reach agreement with rival parties following January´s inconclusive general election. He now has until March 16 to form a government – otherwise Mr Peres will ask another party leader to lead coalition talks. White House officials have said Mr Obama will call off his visit if no government is in place by then. The US president is scheduled to arrive on March 20 for a two-day trip that will also include the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Comments:
Awkward header suggests at first glance that Obama is in jeopardy as President.

If only.

Awkward, but we know what it means. It would make more sense if the first sentence of the article, located immediately below the headline and above the photo and dateline/byline, had been included in the intro.

The Telegraph is known for this odd formatting in its news articles.

A family member forwarded an email to me this afternoon. It is a message from one Mike Evans, founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, and corroborates the information about the two parties. But here is the disturbing part from Mr. Evans´ message:

"My friends in diplomatic circles in Jerusalem have told me what is happening is that President Obama´s advance team is in the city meeting with those party leaders and encouraging them to dig in their heels. My contacts believe that if Netanyahu is prohibited from forming a government, new elections will be forced on the Israeli people, and the prime minister will not be given a necessary mandate. This would give President Obama a Leftist party with which he could work to divide Jerusalem and quickly create a Palestinian state."

Obama needs to go to Israel as soon as possible in order to restore his image as a respected world leader.

Obama has spent the past two months reminding everyone that he´s part of the Chicago political machine, lying, demagoguing, and threatening those who dare to tell the truth about him.

Yet after all of his hysterical demogoguery, and with his party in control of the government´s executive branch, the Senate, and with the mainsteam media fully on his side -- except for Bob Woodward -- Obama still lost to the Republicans on the sequester issue. So he looks like a loser. Not to mention that his approval rating has been falling.

And the press still seems angry at him for not giving them any access during his trip to play golf with Tiger Woods.

So Obama clearly needs a stage on which to act statesmanlike in the eyes of Americans and the world, which Israel promises to provide. So if Israel´s political problems force them to postpone Obama´s trip, it will be a setback for Obama.

Netanyahu will have to jettison some of the ultra orthodox parties, but he´ll form a government. Obama will visit. There are new parties vying for political turf, but things will work out. An American Presidential visit is too important to let political squabbles interfere, even if it is only Obama.

Maybe Bibi can suggest some halal fast-food restaurants for Obama to eat dinner at while he´s there.

It´s only fair - when Bibi was here, Obama left their meeting to go eat dinner with his buddies and left the Israeli delegation looking for a fast-food place near the White House.

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

If there was a standard operating manual for the secret services of the world´s dodgier regimes, it would no doubt omit any mention of the term "agent provocateur". In Russia, Burma, Iran et al, state-backed agents never get involved in causing trouble. Instead, there are only "patriotic local citizens", who, unable to contain themselves, rise up in righteous indignation against those who might betray the nation. That, if Russia is to be believed, is exactly what it happening in eastern Ukraine right now. According to a statement this morning from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, there are "no Russian

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

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.

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)

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
