Skip to comments.Obama appeal to Israeli public means risk

In a landmark speech to young Israelis this week, the visiting U.S. President Barack Obama delivered an unorthodox appeal couched behind warm words of affinity for their country: Urge your leaders to change their ways and take bold new steps to reach peace with the Palestinians.
The message, potentially risking the ire of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, marked a gamble by the U.S. leader as he searches for ways to restart long-stalled Mideast peace efforts. With no breakthroughs coming out of the visit on the Palestinian front, Obama must now hope that the power of the presidency, combined with the goodwill he accumulated during the 48-hour visit, can persuade a still-skeptical Israeli leadership to abandon some deeply entrenched views and get negotiations moving again.
Obamas speech, even the lines most critical of Israel, was repeatedly interrupted by applause from the preselected audience largely comprised of university students. Perhaps the loudest ovation came when he called for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

Associated Press - you are almost as vapidly stupid as is the Obamadork.
Almost.....but not quite...since the Obamadork is the baseline from which all stupidity should be measured.
Glenn Beck explained this well today.. He pointed out that 0bama is trying to DESTABILIZE Israel just as he did with Egypt and Mubarak. Appealing to radicals to cause turmoil from within. We have an EVIL government doing EVIL things. FUBO.
The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie,
and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie
and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
Pretty much explains what happened here in America!
Our undocumented president is playing with fire................
Obama doesn’t want to accomplish anything except to make the world believe there’s nothing he can do to make peace. His goal is to get to the point where the UN will vote on making Palestinians a permanent member state. Obama would then have the US abstain from the vote, which means it would pass and make it look like he isn’t picking sides.
