Skip to comments.Biden: Seize the Moment, Make Peace
Posted on 01/13/2014 4:40:40 PM PST by Eleutheria5
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden on Monday urged Israel to seize this moment in history to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA), AFP reported.
Bidens comments were made in a meeting with President Shimon Peres, hours after both paid their last respects to former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon, who was buried on Monday.
The meeting focused on the U.S.-led direct peace talks between the sides, which resumed in July.
"The one place (in the region) where there's a possibility for an island of stability ... is between the Palestinian people and the Israeli people, in two secure states respecting one another's sovereignty and security," Biden told Peres in remarks relayed by the White House.
"And the president believes and I believe that this is one of those opportunities, one of those moments in history where it has to be seized," he added.
Biden admitted there were some "very difficult decisions" ahead, but expressed confidence that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was "up to" the task and expressed hope that the same was true of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
"Israel's ultimate security rests in a genuine accommodation with the Palestinians that it is born out of secure borders that are peaceful," he said during the meeting with Peres.

Israel, seize the moment. Level Gaza.
“Peace” would mean the expulsion of tens of thousands of Jews from their homes in Judaea and Samaria.
Whoever goes along with such a notion in Washington and Jerusalem is out of touch with reality.
And for G-d’s sake, give Joe Biden his Hawaiian pork dinner this time. He won’t notice anything, so long as he’s got pineapple and pig on his plate.
“Peace” to a liberal is giving them everything they want then giving them some more.
And then duck.
Or, give them anything and everything they want and not a penny more.
And then duck.
Wow, according to Biden, it’s Israel’s fault that there is no peace with murderous, Israel-hating Palestinians.
Are these people just F’ng insane????
I’m sure it’s hard for the Palis to keep
from bursting out laughing at their inanities.
G_D help us.
I am sure he has nothing but Israel's Best Intentions at heart, which is why his Administration is arming Muslin Radicals in Syria to wage war on ISRAEL!!!
Its like sitting in a box seat having read the end of the script. These people have no idea of who wrote the screen play nor have the any clue as to the ending.
Teenage boys seize their moment quite often. Then they grow up and get married.
Rimshot Joe needs to stay the hell out of Israel’s business. Israel’s survival is at stake here. Something boy wonder with the hair plugs wouldn’t understand. He’s a moron.
...leave no stone unturned.... level. .... the place...
When the Dims make peace with the American citizens, and stop pushing them into corners....he can ask the Jews to make peace with those that want to kill them.
Did you hear what Biden said at the funeral? He left us too soon. About an 85 year old who’s been in a coma for the last 8 years. Another “stand up” comment from Uncle Joe!
His Arrogance must have surely wanted to embarrass Israel by sending Slow Joe to represent the US....our designated under performing bucket of warm spit.
I thank God every day that He chose me. The phrase but for the grace of God there go I means more today to me than ever before.
"Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 1:13)
Gaza,Tehran, Mecca, Medina, Damascus, and maybe a few other mooselimb biggie towns,.
Level em and make em glow in the dark and then see how well mooselimbs can behave.
I have to agree with Mr. Gates, Biden is a blithering idiot.
Mecca and Medina is their religion. If they’re gone, mad mo’s reign of horror is ended.
hit both with especially harsh nukes that leave high radiation levals forever
Someone should inform Slow Joe how the perpetually aggrieved Arab parties define peace. I don’t think the word means what he thinks it does.
