Right wing MKs: Obama is the new Arafat
By GIL HOFFMAN
Danon, Ben-Ari outraged by US president's call for creation of Palestinian state on '67 lines; Livni says plan in Israel's interests.
Knesset members on the Right expressed outrage on Thursday night at US President Barack Obama's call for the creation of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps in an exchange of territory for security.
They called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to reject Obama's plan when he meets with him on Friday in Washington.
"Barack Hussein Obama adopted the staged plan for Israel's destruction of Yasser Arafat, and he is trying to force it on our prime minister," said Likud MK Danny Danon. "All that was new in the speech was that he called for Israel to return to 1967 borders without solving the crisis. Netanyahu has only one option: To tell Obama forget about it."
National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari also slammed Obama's speech, calling it "a landmine with pretty wrapping."
Environment Minister Gilad Erdan, who as a minister close to Netanyahu must be more diplomatic, complained on Channel 2 that according to Obama's approach, the Palestinians would receive their demands on borders before negotiations begin.
"Once they have everything from the start, they have no reason to make any concessions,"Erdan said.
But opposition leader Tzipi Livni said Obama's plan was clearly in Israel's interests, while the diplomatic stalemate that she believes was brought on by Netanyahu is not.
"On his visit, Netanyahu must display the leadership necessary now to create the conditions necessary to restart negotiations with those who are ready to end the conflict," Livni said. "Only a real Israeli initiative with content that can receive American and international support can be an answer to the current dangers and opportunities." Her Kadima colleague, MK Yoel Hasson, warned that if Netanyahu did not take immediate action, he would bring Israel into deeper international isolation and borders forced on Israel unilaterally.
I don’t think Obama gives a damn who knows he is a Muslim anymore. He might as well come out and admit it, or by this act perhaps he has.
When you start a negotiation by giving the other side everything they claim to demand, they can just reset the goal line to, say, the entire Mediterranean shore. The Palestinians assert a right to the entire land of Israel, why shouldn’t they just swallow this concession and then grab for more?
“But opposition leader Tzipi Livni said Obama’s plan was clearly in Israel’s interests,”
How is what Zero had to say “clearly in Israel’s interest”? Wow!
Does this mean Obama’s... anti-Semitic?
“Obama is just one more fool who thinks the issue, somehow, is borders. The issue is the existence of Israel as a state. The Muzzies will never be satisfied until Israel disappears. There’s no point in negotiating with them. I know of no way to negotiate your own death.”
Correct. The dispute has nothing to do with borders.
It has to the with Jewish peoples’ existance; the muslims demand genocide.
Watch for obamma to call on the UN to enforce obamma’s suggestion and vote to invade Israel, using violence to bring about a peaceful solution?
Or maybe some enterprising FReeper photo-shopper can do it for him...
It means he’s an anti-God Muslim.
Not only does this anger those living in Israel it also angers those living outside Israel.
Suckers, you have been had!
It has always been a mystery why Jewish US citizens seem to overwhelmingly vote for the democrats. Never has made sense.
The new Arafat received almost 80% of the US Jewish vote.
And higher percentage of financial support.
US Jews are a bigger threat to Israeli than Hamas.
Somebody enlighten me if I’m wrong,
but my understanding is that the “liberal Jew” in America is either ambivalent or outright hostile toward the Jewish state of Israel.
70% something “self-identified” Jewish people, most of whom are not Zionist and do not identify with Israel.
And if every single one voted for McCain, Obama would still be President.
“I dont think Obama gives a damn who knows he is a Muslim anymore. He might as well come out and admit it, or by this act perhaps he has.”
Following the idea of “my enemy’s enemy is my friend”, and his hatred of America is so vehement, he would look Muslim even if he wasn’t.
I wish Zero was just one tenth as tough against the Palies as he is with AZ.
