Obamaís pledge of US troops to Sinai next week won Israelís nod for ceasefire

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu agreed to a ceasefire for halting the eight-day Israeli Gaza operation Wednesday night, Nov. 21, after President Barack Obama personally pledged to start deploying US troops in Egyptian Sinai next week, DEBKAfile reports. The conversation, which finally tipped the scales for a ceasefire, took place on a secure line Wednesday morning, just hours before it was announced in Cairo.

Clinton was sympathetic to this argument. Soon after, President Obama was on the phone to Netanyahu with an assurance that US troops would be in place in Sinai next week, after he had obtained President Morsi’s consent for them to go into immediate action against Iranian smuggling networks. Netanyahu responded by agreeing to a ceasefire being announced in Cairo that night by Clinton and the Egyptian foreign minister, and to holding back the thousands of Israeli reservists on standby on the Gaza border. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the first air transports carrying US special forces are due to land at Sharm el Sheikh military airfield in southern Sinai in the next 48 hours and go into action against the arms smugglers without delay.

Will NATO threaten to obliterate Israel as it did Libya? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Yes it might, if Bibi invades GAZA. I hope he does. This showdown must happen and it must happen before Obama consolidates his fascists in NATO and elsewhere.

Bibi needs to push every Palestinian into Egypt, and secure Gaza and settle it with Israelis. And he needs to rattle his nuclear option. And he needs to send Obama packing. The lives of our US troops should not be at risk for the sake of Obama’s anti Israel grift, which is perhaps the greatest travesty.And we should not be helping the Russians to increase their influence in the region as is happening now.

Treason is still ongoing and it will continue for 4 more yeras unless Joe Biden becomes president.

Which way will their positions be oriented?

Facing Israel, so they can be shot in the back.

Israel didn’t ask. Obama/Clinton shoved them down their throat. Israel was ready, willing and able to finish the job themselves with ground troops, but our government had to protect the precious Palestinian Koranimals.
