Knesset Speaker 'Very Worried' by Applause for Biden
INN ^ | 3/11/10 | Gil Ronen and Hillel Fendel

Posted on 03/11/2010 10:57:53 AM PST by Nachum

sraelNN.com) Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud) said Thursday he was “very worried” by the applause that a Tel Aviv University audience gave Vice President Joe Biden when he expressed his condemnation of construction in the Ramat Shlomo neighborhood of Jerusalem. “I am concerned about the erosion of the red lines we set for ourselves and the lessening of the understanding of Israel's strategic needs, about which there can be no compromise,” he said.

The moment Rivlin referred to can be seen in the accompanying video, when Biden says that Palestinian Authority leaders' “commitment to peace” is “an opportunity that must be seized, it must be seized. Who has there been better to date?..."

I’m worried about the applause too. Whoever thought of sending Biden to Israel should be fired. He’s a fool.

No people has had more traitors amongst it than the Jews, from Dathan and the Golden Calfers at the time of Moses, to Kadima and the Socialists of today. What Israel needs is another purge, Old Testament-style.

God won’t turn his back on Israel.

The Jews will be all right.

Mr. Biden, however, is most likely the biggests horse’s ass that the Almighty ever conceived. My word, but he is a gas bag.

Why do allegedly sentient beings keep saying this? They ignore the elephant in the living room, which is the PA's writ does not run through the Pali territories and Hamas has no intention of making peace with Israel.

Pray, but also call the White House. Biden regurgitated what everyone else since the inception of Israel has stated, “There is no better time for peace.” Those that have proclaimed this don’t fully comprehend that the Arabs don’t want peace. They want the destruction of Israel and the erradication of the Jews. Obama and Biden are clueless.

U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden, left, gestures next to Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, right.

"Correct Salami, this is how wide Israel will be when you, me and President Barakbar Schmobama get through destroying Israel".

DC: "Hey bubbeluh, miss me yet?"

BN: "Dick, like America, we miss you very much!"

It may be appropriate to applaud the Vice President of an ally but is it appropriate to applaud the enemy of your own policy?

I didn't say that he was.

Do you applaud the enemy of your policy?

The policies of the Obama Administration are, IMHO, most certainly detrimental to the health and welfare of Israel and it's population.

They have the same effect on the health and welfare of the United States.

The only silver lining to an otherwise black cloud is that the obama worshipping bastards will get theirs too.

I hope you’re correct, but there are way too many in America who have drunk the kool-aid and are Obama zombies.

30% of voters who would do almost anything, legal or not, to support their evil leader, 0bama (and his socialist, anti-American agenda)

Might or might not, in this circumstance, no, I wouldn’t have applauded. There are Israeli’s who agree with Biden’s position on expansion, so they applaud. To characterize that as detrimental to Israel’s independence is absurd. Sounds like Obamaspeak, disagree with me, you’re disloyal.

Fair enough.

Israel should proceed with the settlements in my opinion. Internal debate is certainly a part of any democracy.

The hamhanded antics of this administration make it likely that expansion will continue. Maybe one day the palestinians will negotiate, and the issue can be discussed. But until then, people need places to live. Joe and Barry may not understand that, living in public housing.

There is also a part of this that is Bibi sticking it in the face of Obama for his lack of support. I don’t blame him one bit.

Possibly, I doubt he liked the timing of the announcement, but who knows. I haven’t heard of any heads rolling because of it. And the worst part, an hour and a half less with Joe, a stunt that made America look like diplomatic amateurs.

We have THE most dangerously incompetent potus and vpotus in the history of this country.

Bibi needs to put a STOP sign at the Israeli border for any/all Bamy regime people.

Being retired now from working at a major public University (I was surrounded by the philosophical enemy), I can vouch for all of the above. This is why we must be hyper vigilant and pay a lot more attention to the garbage being stuffed into our young college students heads (and for that matter in grade and high schools too). They are being brainwashed into the socialist mindset. We need more conservatives to go into the teaching profession and fight from within. As well as more parents speaking up as to what our children are being taught.
