why Israel has refused to freeze construction

Because Israel is more interesting in hanging on to the occupied West Bank than peace?

He wants to know why? Maybe because Judea and Samaria are part of Eretz Israel despite what Mitchell, Obama, and the
rest of the world think.

Because the land is theirs?

“...wants to know in particular why Israel has refused to freeze construction in Judea and Samaria and recognize the need for a PA state.”

Because they don’t have to. Bibi should tell Mitchell to stop asking stupid questions and tell Barry that he’s a spineless wimp, a puppet for his muslim masters.

Even if Israel gave the West Bank to the Palestinians, it would not make any difference to the them. They would still work for the distruction of Israel.

Gee is not Obozo going to be in the area Wed. and Thur.? Seems like a big waste of money for him not to go and tell Israel himself!

Wimp!

He is doing the same thing to Israel that this Cohen scum did to another piece of scum called eminem!

“Mitchell OF LEBANESE DESCENT to Visit Israel Next Week”

So far we have Mitchell, Jordan’s Abdullah, Egypt’s Mubarak, and SA’s Abdullah making foreign policy for Israel. And throw in a boat load of stupid American dhimmi Jews.

What is he, the landlord? Bibi should reschedule, go to India for military cooperation talks, and let Mitchell meet with his aide instead. THAT would send a clear message that Israel does not need the U.S.

Too polite. They should have Mitchell fly all the way there only to hear that Bibi isn’t available. That for time management purposes he’s trying to limit meetings to those who support his country; with world leaders that have credibility, integrity, and backbone to do what is right.

EXACTLY!

So simple, yet so few seem to be able to wrap their liberal little brains around it.

This has been tried over and over, including during their beloved Bubba administration. BiBi could agree to whittle Israel down to one city block & islamists would STILL want to wipe all Jews off the planet.

This is not about real estate & never has been.

George Mitchell was a lobbyist to parts of the Arab world, including Saudi Arabia, when he was named by Obama to give Israel a jolt, if he could. So far, he is doing poorly.

You are on LSD. Any land Israel “gives back” will bring war. Bring rockets and missiles closer. Just come out and say Israel should not exist. I prefer honesty

Please, skip the theatrics.

Israel has the world’s fifth-largest armed forces, and a huge nuclear stockpile.

Israel is no danger of extinction.

Exactly. The whole "settlements" business is a sham. There are Arab settlements throughout Israel and no one seems to demand they be rooted out. If the Palis were sincere they wouldn't mind having a few Jewish settlements in the midst of their "State," would they? Fat chance of that ever happening, of course.

What is he, the landlord?

Mitchell figures, if Obozo can seize General Motors and tell them how to run an auto company, he Mitchell certainly can be allowed to run a small country like Israel. After all, "He brought peace to Northern Ireland!"

When do you want Israel destroyed? Give me your timetable. Ahmadinejad has a timetable and so do you

The Muslim strategy is to wear Israel down via rockets and missiles and nuclear intimidation from Iran.

Every Jew can be off the West Bank in your peace plan. It only means the rockets and missiles get moved closer to Israeli cities and bombard them. This is what you want but are too cowardly to be honest. This is your endgame and the Muslim endgame

You keep forgetting to punctuate.

See the key with the > and the dot on it?

That can make a "period" which ends your sentences.

It's awesome!

If you are serious you severely lacking in logic. But you are not serious. You want Israel strangled then destroyed. You are with the Muslims. They want what you want

Netanyahu needs another visit from the Arab ethnic Mitchell like the proverbial hole in the head!

It might be soon time for Israel to declare Mitchell persona non grata, especially if Obama should talk about dividing Jerusalem in his speech to the Moslems tomorrow.

Most people are unaware that George Mitchell is Lebanese.

Certainly not the 'Rat bigwigs in Washington. His ethnic background - and bias as a result - is a major reason why O thought that this assignment would suit him to a tee.

Muslim Conservative?

So whose land is it? I assume you have the paperwork?

Like the peace making Gaza Judenrein brought. My grandfather used to call it - the peace of the grave.

So sorry Mr. Mitchell, but Bibi's out in the settlements with his bulldozer clearing sites for vast new housing complexes. Got to keep up with an expanding population ya know.

Israel needs to keep up the drumbeat about Iran’s nukes and the Hizzies’ taking over Lebanon.

Think how Putin responded to Hussein’s call for calmness in Georgia—”I have to go fire some SS-21’s—you are free to talk to yourself.”
