Skip to comments.Obama team warns U.S. lawmakers: Expect confrontation with Israel
Posted on 04/07/2009 8:06:26 PM PDT by Ooh-Ah
In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration is readying for a possible confrontation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by briefing Democratic congressmen on the peace process and the positions of the new government in Israel regarding a two-state solution.
The Obama administration is expecting a clash with Netanyahu over his refusal to support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
In recent weeks, American officials have briefed senior Democratic congressmen and prepared the ground for the possibility of disagreements with Israel over the peace process, according to information recently received. The administration's efforts are focused on President Barack Obama's Democratic Party, which now holds a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

inn other news obama goes against Israel and the American Jews vote for him, well most anyway.
He’s already kicked Christians in the teeth and especially Catholics and now it is the turn of Jews
Has anyone ever seen him going to a church and I mean a proper church not a black racist house where they hate whites and America?
Obama won't do anything about North Korea.
Obama won't do anything about Iran.
IF Obama ever uses force, against Israel, I hope the Generals take Obama down.
Farewell to Zion. Forever.

I never thought I would live to see a US President that went out of his way to kiss the asses of our enemies while doing everything possible to antagonize our friends.
Good God, is it 2012 yet?
The United States refuses to recognize that Hamas’ charter dedicated to the eradication of Israel requires exclusively a ONE STATE solution. Israel is NOT to exist, period ....that is Hamas position. It has been an assumption that Hamas will accept a 2 state solution. It is not to be believed, except in Washington, DC.
In other news, Obama bowed and kissed the ring of the Arab king and then had his minions lie about it.
Earlier today Plugs warned Israel agin’ messin with Iran.
I wonder of sarah silverman will lead the “great schlep” to Israel to help rebuild after it’s attacked.
Reap what you sow, suckers. Osama Obama will never take sides against fellow muzzies...............
There will be no Clash....Israel will protech themselves, Obama is a Toothless bore.
If Obama ignores the North Korean Launch, he will Ignore an Israeli launch.
Confrontation my butt.
As Astro would say, “RUH-ROH!!!!!”
Bad mistake fixin’ to happen here, folks.
Can you believe this?
This is old news, John wrote about this in Revelation.
Every one of his lies is somebody's last straw.
I have said this before, I will not be a part of a nation that takes an army against Israel. I will move to Israel and take my chances there first.
Yes. I fully expected it. Though I have to say the prostration to King Abdullah was a bit more than I bargained for.
Catholics? well almost 50+% voted for him - yeah CINO garbage like Notre Dame but they still votd for the Islamo abortion lover.
American (liberal) Jews went for Hussein by about 78% but I guess they would vote for Arafat’s corpse if he had a D after his name.
The only good thing may be the Israelis woke up and elected Bibi. They were 3 to 1 for Juan McCain.
Liberal American Jews invested (voted) in Hussein like many of them invested with Bernie Madoff.
With Bernie many lost their life savings with Hussein they might lose Israel in a nuclear holocaust.
If someone would have asked me what the most outrageous thing Obama would do in the first 60 days in office, bowing and kissing the hand of a king of Mecca is not one of them.
I mean I had my doubts and really figured he probably was a secret muslim, but I didn’t expect him to actually throw all caution to the wind with it.
He isn’t seeing people rioting in the streets so he is going right about his business assuming we are all ok with it.
You are correct...this could be very interesting...
Unfortunately, we are living a four year nightmare.
Does this mean we might just threaten Israel with the US NAvy and/or more?
This is the “test” Biden warned about.
It won’t be action against one of the usual suspects.
It will be action against Israel in some way, perhaps blocking them against Iran, maybe even sabotaging their raid on Iran’s nuclear facilites.
That is why Biden said “our response will seem wrong, but we need you to trust us at that time that we are doing the right thing”.
The PA and Hamas have never ever lived up to one of their obligations to Israel. Obama crowing that he will hold them responsible to do so is only hot air and thuggish bluster, which he has no intention of doing.
We have our first Muslim President. His actions to date, including an unprecedented bow to the Saudi king, have clearly shown his intentions to elevate Muslim intersets worldwide rather than the interests of America.
Every day, there is at least one new outrage with this President and his administration. I’ve lived through many Presidents and I have never seen this radical a group and such radical policies offered and implemented so quickly, not even under Clinton.
If the American electorate does not repudiate the Democrats in the 2010 elections, it is clearly the end of America as we have known it.
“Our” enemies and friends are not the same as Hussein’s enemies and friends, I think.
After what attack? Iran’s? or the United States’?
I have never been able to understand this unwavering support for democrats by so much of the Jewish community.
I’m just going to go ahead and stop asking if things can get any worse.
There ARE enemies and wars that a pacifist Lefty will fight. Serbia was one. Israel could well be another.
Gee, who saw this coming? Did the 78% of American Jews who voted for the p.o.s. see this coming?
Either bomb the crap out of the muslims or shut up!
This could be good news. Messing with the Apple of God’s eye can be dangerous to one’s health.
Most of the Jews in this country will freely admit to being Antizionist. This doesn’t surprise me at all.
If this happens, the U.S. transport planes loaded with arms and equipment will only be supplying Palestinian. Israel won’t get a single round of ammo from us. obama, pelosi and reid will make sure of that !!!!!!! When that happens, I look for a few U.S. generals and admirals to say “Fu*K You, obama”, and put in papers for immediate retirement.
Just so happens that I saw a story about this subject today. It was reported that the Obamas have not been seen attending a single church service since he was inaugurated.
But I'm really not going to go there, because it is also my understanding that Reagan never attended church, due to the inconvenience that security would cause the other church members.
What does bother me is that the Obamas have young children, and it is really important, IMHO, that the children have a church home. Not enough children are taken to church regularly, and look what is happening to our society.
Obama won’t do anything about anything except unwanted pregnancies.
You got it, Carpathian Benito Obama is contending for the mantle of Anti-Christ and his sidekick Rahm Emanuel the jewish False Prophet.
Should the United States Government oppose Israel or “confront” them in a way that endagered their very existence, that would be the LAST mistake our nation would make. The hand of God has remained on our nation — despite MANY offenses to Him — BECAUSE we’ve been a protector and friend to Israel. If we turn our backs on them, God will take His hand off us — and woe be unto us then...
Yes. I just pray, “Lord, please don’t take it out on me. I didn’t vote for the man.”.
Isn't that like admitting you are suicidal?
Obama and his handlers and lackeys are blind to the truth you posted.
We think zots here at FR are damaging, wait until Obama gets his from up on high.
“If the American electorate does not repudiate the Democrats in the 2010 elections, it is clearly the end of America as we have known it.”
You assume we will have the usual elections in 2010. All Obama would have to do is declare an “emergency” and Buh, Bye elections.
He is planning on something along those lines - his Muslim (A.K.A Arab) backers will demand it.
Quix,,,Have you seen this,,,?
How does that go,,,?
“All nations Of The World Will Turn Against Israel!”...?
LOL! Obama's mother was a proud atheist, and that's the way he was raised (not counting whatever he was in Indonesia as "Barry Soetoro").
The whole "Christian" thing was never anything more than a political prop for Dumbo. That p.o.s. is about as "Christian" as Charles Manson. Fact is, Dumbo knew what he needed to do in order to build his political cred while "community organizing" in the South Side. Wright's "church" was handy and served Obama's purpose.
i think it was actually around 78%, pretty much the same % that voted Clinton in the 90s and Gore in 2000. Kerry slipped a bit to 74% in 2004 but that’s easliy explainable by the prominence of 9/11 and the terrorism issue that pumped up Bush’s vote in the most heavily Jewish areas in the country in NY/NJ and FL. NY/NJ had direct impact from 9/11 and FL had his popular brother as the Governor. Needless to say, all of that was absent in 2008.
McCain got 21% according to the exit poll, 2 pts higher than Bush got in 2000, higher than either Bush41 or Dole got in 90s.
I think if the exonomy hadn’t fallen apart after labor day he’d have gotten a few pts higher and got the same as Bush did in 2004.
But it wouldn’t have changed anything.
So, that means you aren't old enough to remember Carter.
Yea me too, every time I do Obama thinks of something else. Not like any of it is really a surprise but holy crap...only three months in
ironically if you look at the exit polls, among those voters old enough to have remembered Carter(and even more so LBJ and the liberalism of the 60s) and his administration, McCain won handily.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of folks around who don’t remembere, too young to have experienced a true liberal President. Clinton had moderate tendencies and after the 94 election he was neutered by the Congress, anyway. Obama is much more leftist than Clinton and has a huge majority.
They’ll just have to learn and hopefully 2012 will end up being like 1980.
