Blair: Obama anxious about Israel's fate

LONDON (AP) — Middle East envoy Tony Blair says Barack Obama launched his peace initiative because he's concerned about what might happen to Israel if Palestinians unilaterally declare statehood. Blair told an audience of business leaders gathered in central London on Thursday that Obama is "frankly worried about the position that Israel is in." The ex-prime minister says that Obama's initiative — rejected by Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu — is "an attempt to fill a vacuum which he sees as dangerous, particularly dangerous for Israel in the run-up to September." Mideast watchers have speculated that Washington launched its peace initiative to head off a potentially damaging vote on Palestinian statehood at the U.N. general assembly in September.

Oh, that's a funny! Israel could clear the floor of "Palestinians" in a long weekend, if they took the gloves off.

I think of Zero, and then I think of Ceaucescu ...

You have to be a real dumbass to think that Obama wants Israel to go back to the 1967 borders because he really cares for the country and is trying to help.

Spare me!

Obama’s concern about “The Jewish Problem” is similar to Hitler’s concern.

The US could veto any UN resolution of Palestinian statehood and that would be that. Methinks that Obama won’t do it, despite a lot of public agonizing and hand wringing. Sadly, most American Jews will buy his act.

More like Obama wants to destroy Israel before the UN can take credit for the deed.

Yep they sure could and they could have done that years ago. The Palestinians have never wanted peace and after so many decades of Israel giving and giving and giving and no matter what they do, the palies continue to whine, throw bombs, murder families in their beds, it would be about time to just be done with them.

All you need to know, is who obama bows too and who he throws under the bus, while claiming to "help".

I would not trust obama any farther than he could throw a baseball, this limp wristed,spineless excuse for a president will get us into one huge war as he crashes our economy.

....Middle East envoy Tony Blair says Barack Obama launched his peace [sic!] initiative because he’s concerned about what might happen to Israel if Palestinians unilaterally declare statehood....

Well, our past three Presidents and their muslim clients set the precedent—our mis-leaders’ Albanian muslim thug clients occupying Kosovo “unilaterally declared statehood”, with their blessing!!!!

We Americans—and the entire Christian and Jewish world—are suffering from the machinations of muslims and muslim enablers!!!! And obama fits the mold perfectly, as does Tony Blair!

Let’s allow Israel to clear the floor of “Palestinians”, and Serbia to clear the floor of “Kosovars!!!! Make the muslims cringe and grovel for a change!!!!

If you ask a Pali supporter, or basically anyone on the left,

“what are the end goals of the Palestinians, and what would that look like”,

they’ll either lie to you and say something about a two state, coexistance with Israel,
or they’ll admit that they (the liberal you’re talking to) wants Israel wiped off the map and the Jews driven into the sea.

“If you ask a Pali supporter, or basically anyone on the left...”

This is NOT possible. I have given up trying to carry on a conversation with these people.

It's invariably, like trying to talk to a mental defective or a drunk...a real exercise in futility. If it doesn't start out as such, it will certainly end up that way

I’ve made a study of their mindset as a subset of my worldview studies,

so I understand the basis of their beliefs.

I had a really funny conversation once with a lib about welfare. I stated “liberals don’t care how much is wasted or fraudulently used as long as everyone who needs it gets it.”

The lib first vehemently denied the premise, stating “I do TOO care about the fraud and waste” slight pause “but it’s more important that the needy get the help they need.”

“Uh... that’s exactly what I just said you believe...”

“Uh... well... I’m going to have to think about it, but it sounded so MEAN when you said it.”

Ah, Tony Blair....

From 2009....

Revealed: Blair's role in Megrahi release

Pity nobody gives a hang about the Lockerbie deal. I suspect the dirty details behind how and why it was done would go a long way toward explaining Barry's Libya policy.

Right. These people function 100% at the level of emotion. Of course, where there is emotion there is NO substance.

When you are emotional, you are NOT credible.

They will never get it.

These guys will cry for a week over a dead butterfly but the immorality of stealing YOUR money to subsidize the BS lifestyle of the DNC over indulged, minority voter base is OK!

We look at it as irrational, emotion-based “thinking”.

Sowell nailed it though, when he analyzed that your typical leftist simply stops examining any issue exactly at the point where they feel good about themselves for drawing one conclusion or another.

It stems from their desire to justify the pernicious lie of “I’m a good person”.

Tony Blair is the head spokesman (as you know) for the Middle East Quartet. A group that has the division of Israel as its main goal.

The Quartet is the USA, EU, Russia and the United Nations.

Blair and co. use every excuse they can to divide Israel including this propaganda. Well, one day they will get their wish. It won’t turn out as they imagined, unfortunately. (adding info to thread)
