Netanyahu says he's open to 'painful compromises' for peace (NBC lies for Obama, again)
MSNBC ^ | 5/24/2011 | NBC

Posted on 05/24/2011 10:05:33 AM PDT by tobyhill

In an address to a joint meeting of Congress, Israel's prime minister pledged to make "painful compromises" for peace with the Palestinians, but said he would not agree to any deal that threatens Israel's security or its identity as a Jewish state.

Netanyahu, who received a rapturous reception from lawmakers on both sides of the political divide, said Israel wants and needs peace but repeated his flat rejection of a return to what he called the "indefensible" borders that existed before the 1967 Mideast war. He also restated Israel's refusal to entertain the return of millions of Palestinian refugees and their families to land in Israel. And, he maintained that Jerusalem, claimed by both sides as their capital, could not be divided.

,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Obama has not called for a return to the exact borders that Israel held before capturing east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the Six-Day War of June 1967. He, like the Palestinians, is open to land swaps so Israel can hold on to settlements it built after the 1967 war. Obama has not, however, offered proposals for how to return the two sides to the bargaining table. The Palestinians are refusing to come back as long as Israeli settlement construction continues.

They hardly even let Rush get his prediction out before they fulfilled it. Wonder if the article was written before, during or after Bibi’s speech?

MSNBC is in ‘synch’ with the philosophy of the entire Obama administration: You can do whatever you want and create any impression about if you then lie about it with sufficient enthusiasm. Obama says Obmamcare is the magic bullet and the economy is fine; Napolitano says the borders are secure and safe and there’s no violence there, and waterboarding doesn’t work; Holder says the DOJ is doing its job and not driven by overt racism. The list is endless.

He also said that the Palestinian refugee problem would be solved outside the boarders of the Jewish state!

Everyone knows Obama said that Israel must go back to the ‘67 Borders then negotiate from there so I don't know why NBC would want to keep lying for Obama?

Prime Minister Netanyahu is a true diplomat!!

Arrogant Obama could learn a lot about diplomacy from Netanyahu (& he does not need teloprompters).

Looks like Congress had a lot of respect for this eloquent speaking Netanyahu.

FoxNews doesn’t report on MSNBC lying for Obama, but they should.

I was just going to write the same thing! Rush knows these idiots so well; they will do ANYTHING to make the reader i chief look credible.

And Rush also stated that it would infuriate us, and it sure does!

Of course, the unspoken problem with all this is that the PA/Hamas have no intention of honoring land swaps, so it would be the 1967 borders.

I want to see the House Republicans pass a resolution that reaffirms their belief that all of Jerusalem belongs to Israel. It would be interesting to see how many Rats vote against it.

The response to this speech is a very clear and dramatic indication of just how lame our ‘President’ is, compared to experienced and authentic leaders.

Because that’s what they do! They don’t care about reporting truth; they just want their leader to look good.

Hilarious. This is why being reliant on a discredited spin machine like PMSLSD is a joke. Everyone including Lib Rat Jews heard what Obummer said in plain English. There is a reason everyone is calling this loser out on this irresponsible plan, because he said it and then double down on it. Good luck with the spin.

When Herman Cain told Chris Wallace that Israel didn’t oppose the Palestinians so-called “right of return,” he was egregiously incorrect. You have to know this stuff before you go on interview shows. The smart candidate would wait until thoroughly prepared before hot-footing it before the cameras and a hostile interviewer bent on a “gotcha moment.”

Yes, he will need to learn to pause, and ask questions to be sure to understand the question. And then to simply back away from the quesiton if need be.

I was wondering why Cain said that? Probably he misspoke, so I would not hold that against him unless he backs up that statement further. I know there have been times I've said something that just came out wrong, when it was not really what I meant.

If I would have been asked that question, I would have said that is an Israeli issue that has to addressed by them only. And no, I do not support it, nor will I call for it to be happen. The Palestinians will have whatever land they receive if and when they can ever come to a peace deal with Israel. Let them return there.

I keep thinking back years ago, during Clinton, when the Palestinians were offered some 90% of all their demands, including a part of Jerusalem, and they turned the US and Israel down.

"FoxNews doesn’t report on MSNBC lying for Obama, but they should."

Fox likes to posture as 'Right Wing' and simultaneously deny it - it's all part of their Murdoch tabloid image. When someone gets really hard edge - see Glenn Beck & E.D. Hill - that person doesn't last.

Rush predicted that the media would paint this amazing speech as some kind of Obama victory the minute the speech was over. The media in this country is a joke!

The Obama Machine begins its spin. Rush predicted this angle of liberal attack and spin less than an hour ago!

I wonder how Americans would feel, specifically Texans, if Russia, China or worse yet the U.N., demanded America hand over Texas land south of I-10.... to Mexico?

I dunno bout y'all, but there’d be a whole gaggle of Texans packing up their gear and spoilin to lock horns.

How bout the average Israeli family? Could you imagine the shock after hearing O-bozo say what he did?

The nice word “putz” comes to mind first.
