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. The US and Israeli leaders spoke at around the time that a terrorist was blowing up a Tel Aviv bus, injuring 27 people.

Israel trusts Barry more than 50% of those living in this country do. I hope they made the right choice but I wouldn’t bet on it.

but it doesn't sound the least bit in Egypt's favor... to have foreign troops, American at that, in their country would drive the muslime b-hood crazy, no?

Israel makes a lot of mistakes in giving away land or signing up for ceasefires where the enemy has no intention of doing anything other than rearming.

But Israel, and all of our good allies, knows USA cannot cannot be counted on at this time.

Obama may possibly be sending people into that region, I don’t know. Maybe he is. Let’s say he is.
But if he is, it almost certainly is NOT something Bibi is depending or relying on. Bibi is not that stupid.

The article’s connecting of these two ideas is patently fallacious.

We’ve had troops in the Sinai before.

But now they WILL only be targets.

Just say ‘No!’
We shouldn’t be sending in any troops.

I think this report is complete, flaming BS. I believe (as I have posted) that this entire latest dust-up is nothing but synthetic, Potemkin theatre stagecraft designed to prop up Morsi and to burnish the image of 0bama as an international greatman.

And the usual `No ventilating your backsides towards Mecca, no this, no that,’ but the worst part is they’re smack in the middle of that mess. This looks like Hillary’s work, with Zero’s emphatic approval.

"I think this report is complete, flaming BS."

That makes at least two of us, likely many more.

Put US troops in the middle of a place where everyone is armed to the teeth and hates each other, plus most also hate our USA. What could possibly go wrong? Obama gets two weeks of good ratings in the polls and we all get a raised threat level for years.

This is madness. To trust Obama for any support is the last thing that Bebe should do.

“President Barack Obama personally pledged to start deploying US troops in Egyptian Sinai....”

Pretty wierd - I remember reading something in the Bible about a man from the west “gauranteeing” security for Israel - and Israel “trusts” him on that - then he backstabs them.

Daniel maybe? Ezekial? Hmmm - got to look that one up....

I’m not sure “trust” is the word.

It would be a very good bet to think that if anybody has the true, real deal goods on Zero, it’s the Mossad!
