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
