Posted on 05/19/2011 12:39:39 PM PDT by Nachum
In a region already marked by terror and uneasy alliances between tribal conflicts dating back thousands of years, PRESIDENT OBAMA backed a Palestinian demand to Israel: GET OUT!
Trying to advance debate, Barack Obama endorsed a key Palestinian demand for the borders of its future state, prodding Israel to withdraw back to borders established in 1967.
He also prodded Israel to accept the demand because it can never have a truly peaceful nation based on "permanent occupation."
Obama urged that a permanent Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders the ones that existed prior to the Six Day War when a warring Israel battled Egypt and its allies and then occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.
Obamas statements are a significant shift in U.S. policy and insiders feel would anger US allies Israel.
Israel has said an endorsement of the 1967 borders would prejudge any negotiations.
These border realignments would be consistent with those traditionally demanded by Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) terrorist Yasser Arafat during his reign.
The president cautioned that the recent power-sharing between the mainstream Palestinian faction led by and the radical Hamas that rules Gaza "raises profound and legitimate" security questions for Israel.
Israeli PM Netanyahu has refused to deal with a Palestinian government that includes Hamas.
"How can one negotiate with a party that has shown itself unwilling to recognize your right to exist?" Obama asked.
Obama also deep-sixed a push by the Palestinians for U.N. recognition of a separate state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem later this year.
"Symbolic actions to isolate Israel at the United Nations in September won't create an independent state," Obama said.

I fear Israel is now on her own.
I love their description of the Six Day War. Geez.
Which party is he referring to here?
And the Jew-hating Jews in the US will again traipse to the polls next year and vote for this Israel-hating Muslim-sympathizer.
“Obama urged that a permanent Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders”
I think those are 1949 borders, not 1967.
Best the Israelis go ahead and cancel the deal on Sinai ~ as if it wasn't already canceled. They need the buffer zone.
End of powderkeg!
zero pulled out his Israeli voodoo doll and stuck a horse needle between its shoulder blades. What a POS!
Even that has started to change:
Almost 80% of US Jews voted for Obama and his powder Keg.
At least 65% will do so in ‘012.
And they will continue to use their financial and media resources to keep Obama.
The biggest threat to Israel is US Jewish population.
Muslim sympathizer or just plain Muslim?
Please see post number 9.
It does appear that scripture allows Israel to be on her own when dealing with the AntiChrist.
But She won’t be alone, the Lord of Hosts is watching, even if USA proves to be faithless, or politically unable to help her.
The God of Abraham will keep His promises.
“next year” may not happen for some of us...
This stunt by the boy king could very well set the next middle east war in motion. Dear God, please save us from this evil that is playing games with world chaos.
The Aztlan movement will pick up steam. Give the SW USA back to Mexico.
Done on purpose. Remember their motto - never let an ‘engineered’ crisis go to waste.
How esle to rally the national around its leader with his sorry performance and the useless ‘hope and change’ slogan?
There is some CHANGE for you.
Israel has long ignored the reality that you cannot abide having murderous psychopaths that want to kill you living right next door.
They have tried endless times to ignore the obvious, and to just react when they are attacked.
Instead they need to lay down the law: If Palestinians cannot control themselves where they are, then they need to be moved to a nation that will control them.
Ironically, if Israel wanted to, it could expel every Palestinian in Gaza into Egypt, and to appease their conscience, for a mere $20b, they could pay every Palestinian man, woman, and child, THREE TIMES the average Egyptian annual wage. So a family of 6 would get the equivalent of 18 years of Egyptian wages to start anew in Egypt.
Instantly, every Palestinian family expelled to Egypt would be upper middle class, by Egyptian standards. And Israel would be freed of its greater pestilence.
And Israel could bulldoze Gaza below sea level, then let the Mediterranean in, so it would cease to exist entirely.
Unfortunately, I believe he is talking about Israel not recognizing Hamas.
I wish the The Won would keep his mouth shut. He never misses an opportunity to cost people their lives....
This not a good development and could very easily end up as a middle eastern war. A big one.
