Netanyahu too strong, Abbas too
weak for lasting peace, says Obama

Jerusalem Post, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/9/2014 9:06:59 AM

Peace has to start with Israeli and Palestinians leaders, namely Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, US President Barack Obama told the New York Times´ Foreign Affairs columnist Thomas Friedman. [Snip] Obama worried that Netanyahu´s high approval ratings--which have jumped in recent weeks in the wake of Israel´s month-long operation in Gaza--could prevent him from making the difficult concessions needed to reach a long-term deal: "If he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises," like the issue of settlements, the president said.

Comments:
Obviously, Obama is backing the Papa Bear-Baby Bear theory to explain the decades of fighting between Gaza and Israel. (Guess he´s never heard of Yassir Arafat.) And he adds in the rising popularity numbers for Netanyahu as a contributing factor. Of course, it´s not because Bibi´s doing the right thing./S

Who does he think he is--Mama Bear?

No, he´s definitely more the Goldylocks type coming into someone else´s home and thinking he can have whatever he wants with no consequences.

The only thing about Obama knowing what strong is ...is the strong ODOR of his presence and his madness.

Si vis pacem, para bellum is a Latin adage translated as, "If you want peace, prepare for war" (usually interpreted as meaning peace through strength—a strong society being less likely to be attacked by enemies).

Of course, Obama attacks the concept as the anti-Reagan.

Worse, Obama attacks our allies and builds up our enemies.

"Israel needs to find a way to coexist in peace with the Palestinians, Obama said, if it wants to preserve the values on which the State of Israel was founded. “You have to recognize that [the Palestinians] have legitimate claims, and this is their land and neighborhood as well,” he added."

Obama´s is clearly siding with Hamas and their Palestinian supporters. To Obama, the 3,000+ rockets and the 40+ attack tunnels were the result of Israeli disrespect for Gaza, and not Hamas and the Brotherhood´s hatred of Israel. Then again, when the US president is an admirer if not member of the Muslim Bro, what else can we expect.

For people such as Obama, the concept of right and wrong doesn´t even exist. Netanyahu is too strong because of approval ratings. The polls tell him he is right because Israelis are tired of being targets. They shouldn´t make any concessions or compromises. You can´t coexist when your neighbor just wants you dead.

As an enemy of Israel--and he most certainly is--Obama is also an enemy of the Almighty (Genesis 12:2-3). He is the chaff awaiting the four winds to scatter it. The Administration´s obsession with the murderous Palestinians is a strategic and spiritual blunder of epic proportions. God´s going to cut these people down.

Obama and Kerry have, and will have, nothing to do with Israeli´s negotiations. Netanyahu knows they are fools, and will ignore them, while going straight to the American people for the support he needs. Obama should be fired. How long will America tolerate high salaries to government and politicians with such awful performance?

Obama´s abiding contempt for the american public shines through in this latest wacky pronouncement. In effect, "...the fact that my approval ratings is so low means I must be doing everything right..."

Reminds me of the Wizard of Id comic strip when Sir Rodney says, "Sire, the peasants are revolting!
The King replies, "Boy, I´ll say they are."

How can there be "lasting peace" between two entities when one of them states publicly and often that its only goal is to make the other cease to exist? Only a liberal can be this stupid! Peace what happens after one side defeats and conquers the other. This situation will be no different.

Most men learn in junior high school that if you don´t want to get your butt kicked, then don´t start trouble with someone who is likely to be able to do it. The entire "Guy Code" revolves around this simple concept. Hamas apparently never learned this.

It is infuriating to me just how willfully obtuse this man and all his leftoid comrades really are.

WHY haven´t they figured out by now that there NO territorial concession Israel can make that will bring about peace? WHY do they refuse to understand that this is an EXISTENTIAL struggle, and that Israel´s war today will be ours tomorrow?

I think we all know the answers: facile notions of moral equivalence, a self-indulgent refusal to accept moral responsibility, a reflexive 60´s era empathy with any non-Caucasian rabble, however savage or bloodthirsty - and just plain, old-fashioned Jew hatred.

I have a neighbor who is from Israel. He and I have discussed this situation several times, and in each instance he has urged me not to worry about Israel. He insists that his native country has a resilience and inner strength that Americans cannot understand. "We will survive Obama, and anything else that is thrown at us", he says.

Let us all hope and pray that he is right.

Someone needs to lock ValJar and Obama in a room and explain the Middle East to them. Israel just gave back Gaza, did this lead to Peace? No, the Palestinians resumed firing rockets. Land for peace doesn´t work when the other side denies your right to exist.

All posts here are outstanding and couldn´t agree more. Did you notice that every time there is another conflict the Arab world is totally silent? I wonder why. Question is: will the Jews in America wake up? If ovomit calls, Bibi should hang up the phone and if johnny gigolo shows up at the airport, do not let him in. Israel has to finish with Hamas now or never. Another cease fire is more time to reload.

The public needs to understand that Obama studied at Columbia under Edward Said, a Palestinian scholar and activist who reviled America and stated that ANYTHING the Palestinians did to fight Israel was acceptable. Obama is doing his best to hide his extreme Palestine bias and naturally it bubbles to the surface and reveals itself. This would all be self evident had our old media done their job of vetting our Democratic candidate with 1/10 the fervor with which they applied to vetting our GOP candidates. We now have a true Manchurian Candidate for a president. It drives me crazy to listen to political pundits continuously repeat "Why is he doing (whatever he is currently doing)" Wake up! He is doing it because he has a plan and that plan is not beneficial to America.
I met a couple Palestinians in Houston. They are foaming at the mouth angry, bitter, Israeli hating individuals. They grew up their whole lives being taught how vile Israel is. They never see anything Palestinians do as wrong. No matter how heinous. Remind you of anyone else?

Two thoughts:

1. Obama grew up surrounded by radicals his entire life. (and still is) GIGO Principal applies.
2. I will never forgive the media for foisting this left wing radical upon America. I would feel the same way about a right wing radical. We need a right leaning moderate just like the country itself.

#4 beat me to it, because I have been thinking the same thing for the last five years. If we ever had to have a foreign born president I wish it would have been Netanyahu instead of Obama.

I think a great many Americans would gladly exchange Netanyahu for Barry any day of the week. Of course, I would hate to do that to our #1 ally in the ME.

A truly smart Republican politician who really loves this country (we do have a couple) would try to emulate Netanyahu´s strength of character and commitment. We don´t need any pastel colors in our WH.

BO wants Israel so weak that they will acquiesce to the unacceptable.

This should be no surprise.

Liberals want everyone around to be so weak that they bend their knee to the government and liberal thinking. They hate business because it creates wealthy, independent people. They want more poor immigrants in the country and voting because they can "take care" of them to buy votes.

If Israel were weak, Kerry could come in with his ridiculous demands, Israel would cave in, and Kerry could get his peace prize.

The fatal flaw in the liberal plan is that government cannot take care of anyone well. Socialist countries have poor economies and therefore can not spend much to "take care of" the people. The simple reason for this is without the motivation of compensated success, no one is interested in building anything. Why bother? The only possible way to succeed is to allow enough business success and personal reward to fuel the state without allowing the power of the state to dwindle. China is trying to do this with some success but they face massive challenges as well.

As to Israel following this route, not likely. They are too smart with too much reality staring them in the face to follow false liberal ideology. Hopefully they will endure until 2017 and we have a new leader that has some intelligence and some bravery to deal with the Muslim problem.

Kurds Issue Dramatic Call to Arms
as Fresh ISIS Massacre Looms

Kurdish fighters have issued an urgent call to arms amid warnings of an impending massacre by the Islamic State terrorist group in northern Syria. The Kurdish People´s Protection Unit (YPG) has been locked in a fierce battle with IS and other Islamist groups almost since the start of Syria´s civil war. Despite being relatively isolated and receiving no foreign aid from any states the YPG has proven perhaps the most effective force in pushing back against IS. But as the jihadis´ focus shifts to consolidating power in northern Syria the Kurds have found themselves under fiercer attack than ever.

Scottish MPs´ fury at Farage´s demands

The MEP asked all 59 MPs from Scottish constituencies to promise in writing not to take part in votes and debates in the Commons which have no impact on Scotland. Mr Farage wants the voluntary abstaining policy to last until a “wider constitutional settlement” is agreed upon so “the [Scottish] tail can’t continue wagging the dog any longer”. In a letter to the MPs he said: “Until this consensus is reached, there is the urgent need for Scottish MPs not to determine legislation on devolved matters in England.

David Cameron dramatically played the patriotic card yesterday by accusing Ed Miliband of trampling on the rights of the English by blocking ‘home rule’ measures for England. In a move designed to upstage the Labour conference, which started on Friday, the Prime Minister raised the stakes in the bitter war of words that has raged since the Scottish referendum. Mr Cameron called on Mr Miliband to drop his opposition to Tory plans for ‘English votes for English laws’ to match devolved powers for Scotland, which have been promised now the Scots have voted to reject independence.

The attack made France the first foreign country to publicly add military muscle to United States airstrikes against the terrorist group, which has drawn criticism around the world and in a unanimous UN Security Council resolution for its barbarity. French President Francois Hollande said the target was "entirely destroyed." Dozens of extremist fighters were also killed in the four strikes, according to Iraq´s military spokesman.

Western states defeated a Russian proposal on Friday to remove Syria´s alleged past nuclear activities from the agenda of meetings of the UN atomic agency, diplomats said. But in a vote that highlighted how polarizing the global political debate has become, China supported Russia´s initiative while only about half of the nations on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board - 17 out of 35 - voted against. Western diplomats argued that Damascus should be kept under pressure to cooperate with the IAEA´s long-stalled inquiry, even though this has hardly advanced in the last three years as the country descended into bloodshed.

The failed Scottish vote to pull out from the United Kingdom stirred secessionist hopes for some in the United States, where almost a quarter of people are open to their states leaving the union, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll found. Some 23.9 percent of Americans polled from August 23 through September 16 said they strongly supported or tended to support the idea of their state breaking away, while 53.3 percent of the 8,952 respondents strongly opposed or tended to oppose the notion. The urge to sever ties with Washington cuts across party lines and regions, though Republicans and residents of rural Western

The U.S. Senate unanimously adopted the United States-Israel Strategic Partnership Act on Thursday evening, reports JNS. The bipartisan bill, which declares Israel to be a “major strategic partner,” was authored by Senators Barbara Boxer (D-CA) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and had 81 co-sponsors. [Snip] Besides generally elevating the status of the U.S.-Israel relationship, the bill expands the Jewish state’s trade status to expedite export licensing, increases cooperation on energy and other technologies, maintains Israel’s qualitative military edge in the Middle East, and increases U.S. weapons stockpiles in Israel as well as Israeli access to them.

Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds. Royce, who met this week with the foreign minister of Kurdistan, cited recent reports of young female Kurdish troops “laughing” at ISIS forces they had turned back. “These ISIL soldiers apparently believed that if

The man who was the top Marine general from 2006 until his retirement in 2010 says President Barack Obama’s strategy to defeat the terrorist group the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria is doomed to fail. “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” retired Marine General James Conway, who served as the 34th Commandant of the Marine Corps during the end of the Bush administration and the beginning of the Obama administration, said at the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, according to a source in attendance. Maverick PAC has described itself

Sarah Palin has come out in defense of her daughter Bristol who allegedly punched a man in the face during a family brawl. The former Vice President candidate hailed her child as a ´straight shooter´ in a Facebook which appears to be her first veiled reference to the fight two weekends ago. The 23-year-old is said to have repeatedly hit the owner of a home in Anchorage, Alaska, during an outburst in which her brother Track broke four ribs and her father Todd was left with a bloody nose. (Tweet) It came after Willow Palin´s ex-boyfriend allegedly engage in some

Shawn Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, said on Friday that if you don’t believe in climate change and support federal spending to fight it, you believe the earth is flat. “The failure to invest in climate solutions and climate preparedness doesn’t get you membership in a fiscal conservatives caucus,” Donovan said at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C. “It makes you a member of the Flat Earth Society.” Donovan, who formerly ran the Department of Housing and Urban Development under President Barack Obama, is now in charge of the arm of the executive branch

CBS is putting its Hillary-inspired drama "Madam Secretary" on Sunday nights next to "The Good Wife." In Friday´s New York Times, TV critic Alessandra Stanley discussed the two shows and slammed Hillary. "Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face." Stanley continued: "Téa Leoni, who has a husky voice and a loose, engaging manner, is an unusually likable beauty. As Elizabeth McCord, she has all the brains and determination of the original and none

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

Washington - The Secret Service is coming under intense scrutiny after a man who hopped the White House fence made it all the way through the front door before being apprehended. President Barack Obama and his daughters had just departed the White House on Friday evening when an intruder scaled the north fence, darted across the lawn and into the presidential residence, where agents nabbed him. The security breach triggered a rare evacuation of much of the White House, with Secret Service officers drawing their guns as they rushed staffers and journalists out a side door.

Three and a half months have come and gone and the Pentagon has offered no clarity on what happened to alleged Army deserter and Taliban collaborator Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Fellow soldiers and other critics fear the military’s now-delayed investigation is shaping up to be a whitewash. The case has become a political powder keg for President Obama. Since he traded five imprisoned Taliban leaders for Bergdahl, the US Government Accountability Office has declared the swap illegal, and nearly two dozen House Democrats have joined Republicans in officially condemning the move for making “Americans less safe.”

The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition, which was authored by D.A. King, founder of the Georgia-based

WASHINGTON — WHEN Willie Nelson invites you to get high with him on his bus, you go. The man is the patron saint of pot, after all, and I’m the poster girl for bad pot trips. It seemed like a match made in hash heaven. When Nelson sang at the 9:30 club in D.C. one recent night, I ventured onto the Honeysuckle Rose, as his tour bus and home-away-from-home is called. I was feeling pretty shy about meeting him. The 81-year-old Redheaded Stranger is an icon, one of America’s top songwriters and, as Rolling Stone said, “a hippie’s hippie and
