The most anti-Israel President in US History We were warned.
BUT THIS IS STUNNING
A top Obama official this weekend told the Palestinian Al-Quds newspaper that there is no need for Palestinians to recognize Israel. Israel National News reported:
The United States believes there is no need for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement, State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday.
Psaki, who spoke to the PA-based Arabic-language Al-Qudsnewspaper, said, The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been adamant on the PA recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, explaining that the Arabs refusal to recognize Israel stands at the heart of the conflict.
The PA has already formally refused to recognize Israel as a Jewish state, stating that the Arab states will never recognize a Jewish state. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas reiterated this position on Friday, when he told young members of his Fatah movement that there is no way he would recognize Israel.
Stunning, but predictable.
The first thing any US President should say, upon being sworn into office, is that no negotiations will be pursued UNTIL the ‘Palestinians’ formally acknowledge Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish State. Until then, there’s no point in bothering.
Remember what Obama said, when the tides turn he will always side with the Muslim World..Obama is Israel’s BIGGEST threat, he and the rest of his Commie Anti Israel goons
Uh, reading comprehension fail on the part of the Gateway Pundit. “Recognize Israel as a jewish state” != “Recognize Israel”. Presumably any peace deal would require that the PA recognize Israeli statehood and give up any right of return, but not agree that Israel should be self-defined as a jewish state.
not stunning, any fool can see Obama is an enemy of anything and everyone who gives any honor or respect for any part of our Biblical faith heritage, Catholic, Protestant, Christian or Jewish
Israel will just have to wait until 2017 for, hopefully, an American president with American values
A distinction without a difference. Quoting the article, the Palestinian leader says he will never recognize Israel.
I have a different idea and it involves tactical nuclear weapons.
This administration has always been on the side of the terrorist Palestinians anyway.
..spoken like a true mooslim
There can be no “peace” deal possible that gives away any more of Israel’s tiny little country.... especially either the high ground (Samaria/Judea, from which the Arabs can toss bombs and missiles so easily into the hearts of Israeli cities, schools, and pizza parlors)....or the strategic buffer strip (Jordan River Valley) which provides some insulation at least against further Arab land army invasions as well as future terrorist incursions....
But of course, not even recognizing Israel as the Jewish home state is plenty, way way more than enough to scuttle any “peace talks” ... as it so clearly reveals the true IslamoNazi intentions or motivations of the Arab thugs at the “peace” table...remains against the Jews, to kill them all at once or to kill them piece-meal by taking their land away from them one piece at a time while continuing to deny the rights of the Jewish people to live in .. any part of...their Jewish homeland.
Nothing has changed, regrettably nothing has changed. These “peace” talks have degenerated into a very bad farce, and are therefore at an end.
Perhaps in a few hundred more years, the Muslims will grow up and learn to live like civilized human beings with us Infidel Christians and Jews.
Patience. Patience. Lots of Patience.
who are these “Palestinians” they speak of? Is Hardian Emperor again?
Yes its important to remember that Barky is a Muslim.
nearly 3 more years. Think how much more dangerous the world will be
There is no such thing as “the palestinians”
this is the very first WRONG PREMISE for any negotiations, either the ones Kerry just recently blew to Hell...or any future talks...
There have been several clear admissions or statements to this effect by Arab leaders. One that I just happen to have copied from the web....below.... (you can easily find more...).
“The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a
Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle
against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality
today there is no difference between Jordanians,
Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and
tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of
a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand
that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian
people’ to oppose Zionism.
“For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state
with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa.
While as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa,
Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we
reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even
a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.”
(PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, in a 1977
interview with the Dutch newspaper Trouw.)
Israel is the bad guy right/s
