Skip to comments.Tatler in Israel: ‘Palestinians are Afraid of Mitt’ According to Prominent Israeli Journalist

My tour of Israel continues with the Young Jewish Conservatives. Today we had the opportunity to meet with Gil Hoffman the Chief Political Correspondent of the Jerusalem Post. He told us that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clintons trip to Israel in a few days is because the Palestinians are afraid of Mitt and understand that he has a good chance of winning the election. The Palestinians are worried that a potential President Romney, who is scheduled to visit Israel soon, as well, will be much harder on them, and therefore believe that now is the time to draw as many concessions out of Israel as they can while the equivocating Obama is still in office. Apparently the Palestinians made a gesture to Clinton to get the ball rolling.
However, the Palestinians should not hold their breath. Mr. Hoffman explained to us that Israel only makes concessions (which usually takes the form of giving up land) under three different circumstances. First, is if there is a charismatic American president that Israel trusts and reveres (for example, Bill Clinton when Netanyahu gave up Hebron during his first stint as Prime Minister); next is if there is a trustworthy Arab leader (such as Egyptian Leader Sadat, when Israel gave up the Sinai); and lastly, a unilateral withdrawal that Israel thinks is in their best interest (such as the pull out from Gaza).

Of course they are.....great to know!
Who cares? Piss on the sons of pig f’n dogs and piss on the Kenyan dictator. I counter their call for jihad with a call for Crusade, this time all out and to the end.
FUBO & FAD
Great endorsement for Mitt!
Oh, are they afraid they won’t get money and backing to take over land that IS NOT THEIRS? Screw em!
“afraid of Mitt”
Just happy with the current Israel hating, appologizing for America CIC....?
Curious cats want to know, what is the Mormon perception of Israel, Jews, and Zionism? These things have found welcome arms in many a mainstream Christian church, especially those whose theology expects the fates of Jews and Christians to unite. But how about Kolob-hieing, space case Mitt?
He has the right enemies. Some of them, anyway.
And to that I say Amen!
