Skip to comments.Obama: U.S. Does Not Recognize 'Legitimacy of Continued Israeli Settlements'
Posted on 09/23/2009 10:49:53 AM PDT by OldDeckHand
In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace "without preconditions," President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."
Obama's stark declaration, which drew applause, was coupled with a call for Palestinians to end their "incitement of Israel."
But it was the use of the U.N. forum to carry the settlement message to Israel that drew the most enthusiastic response on the floor -- and incredulous reaction outside its walls.
Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.
Obama said he met Tuesday with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not in attendance at the speech, and agreed that the two have made some progress in both strengthening security and facilitating freedom of movement, which have allowed the economy in the West Bank to grow.
But more progress is needed, he said.

I would say, 100% of liberal people who call themselves Jews voted for him.
I personally know more pro-Israel Christians than pro-Israel Jews. It is weird.
I hope some of them are having second thoughts.
He does not recognize the legitimacy of the democratic government of Honduras either.
For the most part the only entities on his ‘acceptable’ list are those led by dictators and despots.
As for the jewish vote. I doubt they would change a thing.
Obama hates Jews.
And they will vote for him again. Most American Jews are self hating jews
Kind of intresting to watch the end times roll...
Got that right. I'm sure Bibi will have a statement on this in the next 24 hours and Obama will not like what he has to say.
There are, as stated in the Bible, a “stiff-necked people”.
Who cares what the Kenyan recognizes, the American people support Isreal and thats what matters.
Not surprising from a Muslim Radical Communist.
He is a narcissist and an abject marxist ideologue.
He must be neutered in 2010 and become the 1st American President to be a lame duck after the 2nd year of his first term.
Put Netanyahou right on the chopping block. What will Israel do? What choice do they have now?
Israel: Like A Growing Number Of Americans, We Do Not Recognize ‘Legitimacy Of The Current U.S. Administration’
Yeah, at what point do they get a clue?
This is from Zero’s speech to the UN:
“And sadly, but not surprisingly, this body has often become a forum for sowing discord instead of forging common ground.”
‘Plowshares to swords’????
The list, ping
Just you watch. He uses language like this, and next thing you know, the Palestinians will be ramping up attacks on these ‘illegitimate’ settlements. And they’ll use Obama’s statement to the international audience as cover. And the media won’t blink an eye.
Sayeth the Tyrant.
Reminds me SO much of Jimmy Carter. Cut from the same cloth.
I don’t recognize Obama as a Christ loving, America loving President either. Obama, just like me you’ll have to live with it.
And they will again.
People in Israel fear Obama, they wanted McCain to win. They already prepared themselves on what might happen with an Obama Presidency. They know that Obama is Anti Israel, Pro Arab
Obama, you are not and American, and you do not speak for America.
“America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.”
Speak for yourself, bub. Most Americans do accept that legitimacy.
(Besides, the judge has already ruled in that land dispute,
and Jacob’s descendants get the title.)
You're dead wrong about that Obozo. YOU don't speak for America, you speak against America.
Liberal Jew are suicidal and Obama is a UN lap dog.
Hope all of our nation’s Jews and New York City residents are happy now. Good luck with that anti-terrorist thing...
The more things change...
Obama, is not an American, and he does not speak for America.
He is illegitimate, a usurper of office. As an American citizen of good standing and a registered voter I demand that he be removed, and I state publicly that I do not recognize his rulings as law, nor any part of his holding of office as even legitimate in a de facto sense.
Why Are Jews Liberals?
Podhoretz also has a new book out on this subject “Why Are Jews Liberals?”. He discussed it this past weekend on CSPAN Book TV. His theory is that Liberalism has replaced Judaism as their religious faith for most American Jews.
The conservative Jews are aghast, obviously.
LOTUS - Liar of the United States
....the Israeli government ought to take a full page ad out in Variety saying:
COME ON HOLLYWOOD JEWS; STAND UP FOR ISRAEL!!!
Terrorist and rocket attacks against Israel = “incitement of” Israel in Obammie’s lexicon.
Good grief. Almost 75% of American Jews voted for him.
And they shall reap what they sow
I wonder if the Mossad knows anything about a certain Kenyan birth certifcate? There's one outfit I wouldn't want to butt heads with.
I do not recognize you, 0bama, as president of the united states. How do you like them apples, boy?
The term Apocolypse is translated as the end of the world as we know it.
The world we know it is full of democratic countries thanks to the spread of American style democracy across the globe.
I often wonder what if the Apocolypse is the death of that ideal? Every day I get closer and closer to believing thats the case.
Time for American Jews to make a decision now that they’ve come to an historic “decision point”. That is, do they want to be Jews or do they want to be Democrats.
