U.S. promises Arabs no more Jewish construction
World Net Daily ^ | April 21, 2010 | Aaron Klein

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.

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.

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.

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.

I think I must have missed the part of the Constitution which grants the President the authority to make commitments concerning another country's internal domestic politics.

Obama has no business telling Israel what they can and cannot do on their own territory (which includes all of Judea and Samaria, IMHO).

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.
Not.

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.

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.

Reading this makes me sad. I would hope that Netanyahu's government does not cave in to this crap. Really, if the gesture of the freeze was to promote peace negotiations, and since that time there have been no negotiations, then the freeze was not successful, and what is the point to continue it?

The only reason is the "Palestinians" (a whole story on its own merit) will keep pressing for more, and more, and never be satisfied. We've seen this in the deals that they have rejected. Why Israel continues the concessions, who knows?

And on that note, more food for thought - why has not anyone pointed out, nor has the media noticed, the extreme double standard applied to Israel by The Exhalted One, who so gloriously declared in his presidential campaign that we, The United States of America, would engage Iran in diplomatic talks with NO PRECONDITIONS, and is now demanding as a supposed unbiased third party mediator, that Israel must obey and concede to preconditions before even having a guarantee of talks?

Why does not anyone point out this hypocrisy. This double standard has been applied to Israel all her life, sadly to say, and did not start with Obama (see the U.N. and "disproportionate force" BS) ... but the irony of the situation should be quite evident here. It just really pisses me off.

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.
