Skip to comments.U.S. promises Arabs no more Jewish construction
Posted on 04/22/2010 8:20:40 AM PDT by Ooh-Ah
JERUSALEM The Obama administration pledged to the Palestinian Authority it will secure an extension of a freeze on Jewish construction in the West Bank and a de facto freeze in eastern Jerusalem, a top PA leader told WND.
Under intense U.S. pressure, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in November announced a 10-month halt to all Jewish construction in the West Bank in an attempt to jumpstart talks aimed at creating a PA-led state. Netanyahu had publicly claimed the settlement moratorium was temporary and that new construction would resume after the freeze expires in September.
The Obama administration is also demanding a total halt to all Jewish construction in eastern Jerusalem as a precondition to jumpstart talks. Netanyahu has refused an official freeze, but almost no new Jewish construction in eastern Jerusalem has been approved since last month.
A top PA leader told WND in a phone interview today that Obama administration officials told him they are confident Netanyahu will extend the construction freeze to the West Bank as well as the de facto freeze in eastern Jerusalem beyond the agreed-upon time limits.

Netanyahu promises Obama ... go pound sand.
Israel should tell the Anti-Semitic Kenyan Muslim to (bleep) off.....
Yeah, and no more Iranian Nukes, or hunger in Dufer
How about demanding a total halt of shooting rockets into Israel and all suicide bombers.
What should Republicans do to make clear that Obama’s foreign policy is not theirs? Introduce a resolution in the House or Senate? This administration really pisses me off.
Filing this in ...
Obama’s Outstanding Record of Dip-lunacy [and leftist dip-lunacy too]
Who in the he!! does Mr. Zero think he is. Jerusalem belongs to the Jews. If they want to build in their own country they can do it. What a completely inept, moronic administration and leader we have now. I can’t even bear to watch his pompous @ss on TV any more not Pelosi, Reed and Biden. Liberal socialist idiots - ALL. Mr. Zero better think twice about messing with Israel - you think we have earth quakes and volcano’s now, IMHO!
And in September, Netanyahu should announce that Israel tried in good faith to make peace but that no one would come to the table with him, so therefore he is launching a building program of biblical proportions in Jerusalem and the West Bank!!
Does Obama somehow think that he was made President of Israel?
God, I despise this man. Please Israel, don’t let him bully you.
This man’s ego is on par with Hitler, no doubt about it.
is interested in nothing more than serving his own vanity. Israel is not his PR agent. They should approve new “East” construction as soon as possible to make it clear they will not play ball. Once the GOP prevails on Nov 2nd, all this madness will come to a screeching halt.
Why doesn’t Bibi just make a big public splash and tell 0bozo the commie pig to just STFU??? I don’t understand the reluctance on Bibi’s part or his capitulation to an inept, incompetent, anti-Israel 0bozo, the commie pig RAT bastard!
I’ve asked around here a few times about this? What business does Obama have in this matter? How or WHY are we dictating what people do in their own country. What purpose does this serve?
Jerusalem is mentioned more than 600 times in the Bible. Not once in the Koran.
We are starting to see the answer to the age old question that the students of end-time Bible prophecy have always had. Where is The United States of America in Bible prophecy?
We are either going to be:
standing with Israel,
fighting them, or the more likely scenario
sitting by and watching, being insignificant in the grand sceme of things like many other countries, sitting on the sidelines and watching as the World comes crashing down on Israel.
“Mr. Zero better think twice about messing with Israel - you think we have earth quakes and volcanos now, IMHO”!
Remember what happened with all the flooding in New England recently, most would say coincidence, not me, every-time the US pressures Israel, something bad happens. They are sooooo stupid. God in Heaven will not be mocked. Everyone, I truly believe needs to get ready for the RAPTURE, O-blow-ma is going to destroy everything he touches.
Exactly! It’s not like Obama is helping Israel in any way! Not one item has been sold since Obama became president.
Just a few weeks ago, an arrangement was made to sell some arms to Israel and Obama blocked it at the last minute.
Israel has nothing to lose at this point.
I'm ready. It is so heartbreaking what is happening to America. I think God is trying to let people know who is in charge and to turn to him and what do people do, try to nationalize abortion. I hear people in Haiti are coming to the Lord in droves, China is on fire and it is happening all over the world. Yet, Christians are demeaned and demonized and Muslims are coddled and respected. As the bible tells us - good will be considered bad and bad good. People would rather look to Nostradamus for the future instead of God. God help them.
What purpose does this serve? Muslims, Palestinians. The liberal Jews better wake up and start defending their country!!!!
Obama has no business telling Israel what they can and cannot do on their own territory (which includes all of Judea and Samaria, IMHO).
Apparently, the demented megalomaniac Obama now believes he is the Prime Minister of Israel.
Perhaps a bit of psychiatric counseling is in order.
IMHO the reason Israel kowtows to Zer0 and the U.S. in general is their need for military equipment.
Similar to our kissing Saudi a$$ to keep the oil flowing.
Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, always has been the capital of the Jewish kingdom.
The muslims have no claim on it. No part of it.
They have this screwy idea that if they have ever occupied a territory or plot of land, it’s theirs forever.
I truly believe “EVERYONE” needs to get ready for the RAPTURE. I can’t believe I forgot that one word, must be zero fatigue. Instead of going forward on anything, we are going backwards. Amazing how candidate zero campaigned on issues, and was lying all along. I wonder how may flip-flops he has done. The LORD, I am sure is recording it all, especially when it comes to Israel. He is a liar, liar, and you will know a tree by it’s fruit. God help us all.
Netanyahu will be around long after the fall of Obamo....
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Who is Zero to PROMISE anything?
Great Idea ...Then again the gOP has NO BALLS !
What business does Obama have in this matter?
Haven’t you heard he’s the King of the New World Order
Before there was an Israel, there was an Egypt and a Jordan.
After there was an Israel, the Egyptians and Jordanians who had been living in the historic Nation of Israel, re-created themselves as “Palestinians” and declared the Nation that once was Egypt and Jordan their own.
If Palestine is a “real” Nation, why was it not formed BEFORE Israel?
Palestine is a FAUX Nation. It only exists to destroy Israel.
Maybe we could start a “Habitat for Jerusalem” volunteer
organization to go over and build houses for Jewish folks.
Probably get us arrested by our own government though.
Feh, so what.
Jerusalem it’s Capital.
Golan it’s fortress.
Israel the dream.
How do you spell diplomacy under Honest/s Obe?
Don’t you know, Obama believes he is the reincarnation of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
Just to be fair shouldn’t there also be a halt to Arab construction?
Bibi is no fool. He’s not going to endanger his relationship with an entire country just to spite some guy who’s going to be out of a job in three years.
Zero has a strange blind ambition to destroy Israel.
Obongo—Better Fess up now!
Arizona wants your Birth Certificate!
Do not go past go!
This is unbelievable, but SOOOOOOOOOooo predictible!
Dont you know, Obama believes he is the reincarnation of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem.
My, My another mindless decision made on his part. He will regret it if he rejects Christ in favor of the grand poopa.
Nethanyahu already did. No freeze or halts to construction.
A subsequently leaked memo shows the Obozo administration has no backup plan in place after the “tell the Israelis not to build” plan.
Somebody may want to tell Obama that Bibi, just this afternoon, said no settlement freeze . . .
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Thursday that Israel does not intend to comply with the American demand that it halt settlement construction in East Jerusalem.
“I am saying one thing. There will be no freeze in Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said in an interview with Channel 2 television. “There should be no preconditions to talks,” he added, referring to the Palestinian demand that Israel end all settlement construction before they would be willing to resume peace negotiations.
Sheesh! Who knew?
Someting tells me that the Mossad is about to save us from a rather large carbon foot print.
