TEL AVIV Now that he has secured his second term, President Barack Obama has already secretly pledged to the Palestinians he will press Israel into a new round of so-called land-for-peace negotiations, a top Palestinian Authority negotiator told KleinOnline.
The negotiator said top members of the Obama administration told the Palestinians the U.S. president will renew talks aimed at creating a Palestinian state in the so-called 1967 borders meaning in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and, notably, eastern Jerusalem.
The negotiator further revealed when it comes to dividing Jerusalem, Obama wants to rehash what is known as the Clinton parameters.
That formula, pushed by Bill Clinton during the Camp David talks in 2000, called for Jewish areas of Jerusalem to remain Israeli while the Palestinians will get sovereignty over neighborhoods that are largely Arab.
KleinOnline previously reported how Palestinians are building illegally in Jewish-owned areas of Jerusalem, changing facts on the ground and resulting in Arab majorities on certain neighborhoods.
This is not the first time the Palestinians are claiming Obama will push for new talks during a second term.

Also Israel about to nuke Syria...
No problems. The Israelis will tell Obama what he can do with his pledge...
The Israelis will tell Obama what he can do with his pledge...
I think Jehovah trumps Obama and God is not pleased.
when you win a war and take land back, you get to keep the land.
afaik the israelis didn’t start the 67 war either.
The 1967 war was started by the Israelis but they claimed that it was a pre-emptive strike against an anticipated Egyptian attack.
The Israelis “started” the 1967 war in the same sense that you could say that they will have started a war with Iran if they attack its nuclear facilities. Egypt’s president Nassar maintained a steady drumbeat of threats to drive Israel into the sea, and then he followed up with illegally closing the Suez Canal, taking away one of Israel’s main shipping channels, in an effort to weaken the Jewish state.
Perhaps. But then would happen if Obama started withdrawing US aid to Israel as "punishment"? No more money, no more spare parts for military equipment, no more sharing of intelligence. It would be an embargo, without actually using the word.
And what would happen if Obama encouraged other nations to do the same, all in the interest of "peace"?
Israel is a small nation. It needs big friends.
To all those conservatives who just couldn't vote for Romney because of ________ (fill in the blank), here's another example of the old saying "elections have consequences."
I am not disputing you. There was clearly an ongoing conflict and threat from the Egyptians before the 1967 war. Indeed, as I pointed out, this was the rationale given by the Israelis for their attack. But the credibility for one’s argument is lost if the fact that in 1967 it was the Israelis who attacked the Egyptians is denied and the 1967 war is presented as an attack by the Egyptians. Rather, acknowledge that this time it was the Israelis who attacked but argue that their attack was a justifiable pre-emptive strike as they claimed.
Allow me to anticipate Bibi’s response:
“Israel is less concerned with what America may not provide, than we are with the demands they seek to impose.”
Bibi does this after muttering his brief, initial response, under his breath.....
You may want to invest in a little research, before coming here and posting ludicrous “Israel was the aggressor” memes.
No, I won't do it for you.
Egypt blockaded the Israeli port of Eilat, its only port in the south and through which flowed all of its trade south and east. Further, Nasser kicked the UN peacekeeping troops out of the Sinai, which had been the only thing that made the Israelis agree to give back Sinai after the 1956 war. Finally, Egypt moved several divisions of troops into Sinai. Any ONE of these things taken separately would have been an act of war. All three, especially when combined with Nasser’s threats to “push the Jews into the sea” and its sudden alliance with Syria presented a mortal threat to Israel’s very existence. The first act of war was on the part of Egypt. Israel committed the second - defensive - act by pre-empting an attack that every thinking person on the planet knew was coming.
Bottom line: Egypt started that war.
You’re an idiot. You think Israel should have waiting until Egypt and the rest actually fired the shots before doing what was necessary to defend and win that war. Face it, you’re just pissed Israel won.
Israel already gave back the damn sinai penensula....
Wasn’t that enough?
The 1967 war was started by the Israelis
It looks like a review of history is in order here.
And where did I state that “Israel was the aggressor”? I twice acknowledged that there was a conflict and threat from Egypt before the war. The 1967 war was a part of a wider conflict but the war itself was a specific set of actions that started with the pre-emptive strike by the Israelis against the Egyptians and ended with the armistice. Even the Israelis acknowledge that they struck first. This has nothing to do with the question of wether or not they were justified in so acting. It is just historically inaccurate to state that in 1967 it was the Egyptians who actually attacked first.
Potential timeline bump....

Israel has cards it hasn’t played. The obama administration is playing with fire if it thinks it can force a division of Jerusalem...because if that EVER happens, hell hath no fury like HaShem scorned.
Could it be more obvious he’s Moselm?
Divide Israel’s capital, Jerusalem?
Not in this earthly lifetime on Bibi’s watch.
There’s ‘attacking’ and then there’s ‘ATTACKING’.
‘Attacking’ is what the Egyptians did, before the Israelis retaliated by “ATTACKING”.
Egypt started it.
And they got the s-— kicked out of them. Deservedly, I might add.
I have always been of the opinion that he is More Communist than Muslim.
But this puts serious doubts in my Theory.
Does Ubama think he is the First Tyrant try and Divide our People?
I know that time of the year has passed but maybe if Ubama looked into the History of Chanukah (instead of simply paying lip service too it).
He Would know that with HaShem by our side we threw out the Seleucid's trying to introduce the worship of alien gods.
And if Ubama's people keep calling Jerusalem Al Quds I am going to SCREAM!
The Israelis weakened BiBi with leftist power last election.

This is from last Friday’s FR “The Official Friday Silliness
TO WHOM DOES THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONG??
An Israeli Sense of Humor at United Nations set the record straight.
An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.
A representative from Israel began: Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses: When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought, What a good opportunity to have a bath!
Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water. When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished. A Palestinian had stolen them!”
The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and shouted, What are you talking about? The Palestinians were not there then.
The Israeli representative smiled and said, And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.
Not a surprise at all. the interesting thing will be when Obama doesn’t defend Israel in the UN Security Council. He will abandon and isolate them there.
Tyrant Hussein Obama Second Reich File.
Not as beautiful as Israel or the Hearts of those who support it (like you two)
This we must protect.
Yes, you are correct. I mis-remembered. It wasn’t simply closure of the Suez Canal (which had been closed to Israeli shipping since 1949 except for a 2-year period in the early 1950s, according to Wikipedia); it was a blockade of the Straits of Tiran, which was the only point of access to the Port of Eilat, Israel’s only port that provided access to Eastern Africa and Asia.
Thank you for pointing this out.
” but they claimed that it was a pre-emptive strike “
That phrasing CHALLENGES the claim, as though it were invalid, or lacked any objective proof.
That is BULL!
Subsequent concessions aside.
For a different analysis of what happened I direct you to "Israels attack on Egypt in June 67 was not preemptive", Foreign Policy Journal.
‘Won’t someone relieve us of....’
I agree. It'll be for "Peace and
Safety Security, Peace and Safety Security"

REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT
TO THE UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY
United Nations Headquarters
New York, New York
"Upon taking office, I appointed a Special Envoy for Middle East Peace, and America has worked steadily and aggressively to advance the cause of two states -- Israel and Palestine -- in which peace and security take root, and the rights of both Israelis and Palestinians are respected. "
I will also continue to seek a just and lasting peace between Israel, Palestine, and the Arab world. (Applause.) We will continue to work on that issue. Yesterday, I had a constructive meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Abbas. We have made some progress. Palestinians have strengthened their efforts on security. Israelis have facilitated greater freedom of movement for the Palestinians. As a result of these efforts on both sides, the economy in the West Bank has begun to grow. But more progress is needed. We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel, and we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. (Applause.)
The time has come -- the time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem. And the goal is clear: Two states living side by side in peace and security -- a Jewish state of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people. (Applause.)
"Together, we must build new coalitions that bridge old divides -- coalitions of different faiths and creeds; of north and south, east, west, black, white, and brown."
About min 2:40 and 7:15
After reading up on it a bit, I believe the Israeli account that Jordan, Egypt and Syria all were escalating to go to war with Israel, and Israel got the first punch in.
Jerusalem will be divided on September 23, 2015.
