Israel fears Obama heading for imposed Mideast settlement
haaretz ^

Posted on 03/28/2010 11:38:06 PM PDT by Chet 99

U.S. President Barack Obama's demands during his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last Tuesday point to an intention to impose a permanent settlement on Israel and the Palestinians in less than two years, political sources in Jerusalem say.

Israeli officials view the demands that Obama made at the White House as the tip of the iceberg under which lies a dramatic change in U.S. policy toward Israel.

Of 10 demands posed by Obama, four deal with Jerusalem: opening a Palestinian commercial interests office in East Jerusalem, an end to the razing of structures in Palestinian neighborhoods in the capital, stopping construction in Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, and not building the neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo.

But another key demand - to discuss the dispute's core issues during the indirect talks that are planned - is perceived in Jerusalem as problematic because it implies that direct negotiations would be bypassed. This would set up a framework through which the Americans would be able to impose a final settlement.

It is not just Obama's demands that are perceived as problematic, but also the new modus operandi of American diplomacy. The fact that the White House and State Department have been in contact with Israel's European allies, first and foremost Germany, is seen as part of an effort to isolate Israel and put enormous political pressure on it.

The one solace is that the Palestinians have shown themselves incapable of taking “yes” for an answer. So they’ll find a way to scuttle things even with Obama trying to hand them Israel on a silver platter.

And like lemmings marching off a cliff, Jews keep voting “Democrat Socialist Fascist Party”.

Makes me think they also supported Hitler’s rise to power.

Why does this article make me reach for the final chapter of the Bible?

Because you know who signs the peace treaty and starts the ticking of the seven year clock.

That’s a pretty sobering article and assessment from Israel’s al-Jazeera, Haaretz.

Obama is going to lose a lot of power this coming November.

Israel controls all of Jerusalem. Even if all the Democrats were willing to back Obama in his bizarre antagonism toward Israel - and they aren't - Obama's ability to effectively bully Israel ends this November. And I'm sure the Israelis know it.

God will bring swift judgment on this nation as he has in the past if the Kenyan Imposter is allowed to harm Israel while continuing to play President/Dictator. Who are the idiots that voted for this sneak? Well, they asked for it and they got it.

If America through this Enemy-Within Communist Traitor in the White House exacts on Israel casing them to lose land and weaken in the face of its enemies, God will exact on America.

The only political thing standing between the world and the coming destruction as laid out in that final chapter (actually book – Revelation), is America. The world will sink quickly without a strong and free America. If this imposter is allowed to take this country down, then among other things, it’s a sign the God is allowing it and that Jesus is coming very soon because The End will be at hand. Bible prophecy is more up to date than tomorrow's newspaper.

don’t fear, Israel. You have friends in America. Just not in the White House.

Whatever damage Hussein does can be fixed. Just stay strong.

You can not blame American Jews for his election.
They are but a tiny portion of the American population.
This antisemitism must stop , it is hurting our country.
We should be praying God opens their eyes .
We as a nation should be repenting.
