How can Israel have peace if its unwilling to delineate a border, end the occupation? asks White House Mideast chief, Phillip Gordon, in a blistering Tel Aviv speech.
Israels ongoing occupation of the West Bank is wrong and leads to regional instability and dehumanization of Palestinians, a top American government official said Tuesday in Tel Aviv, hinting that the current Israeli government is not committed to peace.
In an unusually harsh major foreign policy address, Philip Gordon, a special assistant to US President Barack Obama and the White House coordinator for the Middle East, appealed to Israeli and Palestinian leaders to make the compromises needed to reach a permanent peace agreement. Jerusalem should not take for granted the opportunity to negotiate such a treaty with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has proven to be a reliable partner, Gordon said.
Delivering the keynote address at the Haaretz newspapers Israel Conference on Peace, Gordon reiterated Obamas position that a final-status agreement should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps

YET AGAIN, The Obama Administration is attacking an ally, and supporting an enemy that wants all of us DEAD.....
The so-called ‘Palestinians’ wouldn’t have the use of indoor plumbing without their so-called enemies.
Will those detestable mongrels ever figure out they are being used as cannon fodder by their Arab ‘brothers?’
The Palestinian government is a terrorist government. As such, it does not deserve to be recognized as a legitimate world class government.
Swear off the inhalation of Israel (read that “ALL JEWS”). Live in peace side by side. Develop peaceful economic relations. Then ask for nation status and Israel will back you.
Until then go F yourself.
Europe, Obama administration, and anyone else, tell us you would back statehood for a nation on your border lobbing in missiles a few hundred times per day.
Until then, go F yourself.
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. -Barack Obama, The Audacity of Hope”, page 261.
Because heaven knows there aren’t enough arab countries in the middle east already.
And in the meantime the Israelis are dodging rockets.
It's ok to fire hundreds of rockets into Israel? It's ok to kill or injure innocent Israeli citizens?
Who kidnapped three young Israeli teens, then murdered them?
I could just chew nails and spitt’em out listening to these stupid damn liberals.
Paging Rick Perry, Paging Rick Perry...
President Obamas new National Security Council coordinator for the Middle East, North Africa and the Gulf does not have much experience with Israeli and Palestinian issues, but observers said the White House will instead benefit from his extensive inside-the-beltway skills.
bringing with him years of federal government experience and a decade in Washingtons think tank world. Like some of his predecessors, Gordons strengths lie more in his knowledge of Washington than his familiarity with the meeting rooms of Jerusalem and Ramallah.
While most of his scholarship has focused elsewhere, Gordon has over the years penned op-eds on Israeli and Palestinian issues. During the Israel-Lebanon war in 2006, Gordon wrote in the Washington Post and the Financial Times that Israels bombing campaign was ill advised, as was the United States backing for it.
“I could just chew nails and spittem out listening to these stupid damn liberals. “
Liberals enjoy getting people killed. It fosters their agenda.
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
This administration is truly deranged and pure evil.
Hey Obama, what about OUR BORDER?
have you noticed whenever we start getting really crappy towards Israel bad things start happening in the US...look what happened after the Bush admin started pressuring Israel...Obama got elected twice!!
“dehumanization of Palestinians”
I am pretty sure they have self-dehumanized.
So let me get this correct Obama wants Israel to accept the borders of 1967. Yet Israel was attacked and is attacked regularly from Gaza which Israel relunctantly ceded. so Israel is not to protect its borders. Just like the USA is not to protect its borders.
okay I live near Michigans border with Canada (Sault Ste Marie). There is not a week that goes by that someone has tried and at times achieves getting someone across the border. The individuals believe they are clear, do a u turn to go back to the last rest area before the border and every time they get busted with the person or persons getting out of the trunk or the area where the suitcases cover over the person. They are clear from the border to lower Michigan or can go to Wisconsin, Illinois or other points west.
Obama denies the sovereign borders of the US but wants the muslims to have no borders so they can kill a nation Israel.
The following is a remarkable speech given in 1939 by John William McCormack (1891 - 1980) of Massachusetts, Representative to the House, on a 'Jewish Homeland' in Palestine. Protesting harshly the British (White Papers) restriction on Jewish immigration while Arab immigration is allowed to flow. Citing the great approval by 5 presidents and an array of high officials all praising the great achievement done by the Jews in Palestine, uplifting and up-building the land. He notices the Arab immigration of at least 150,000 (equal to that of the Jews') from neighboring countries as well as an overall rise in Arab population (such as, an over 50% rise during 17 Years 1920-1937), all due to Jews' work in the "vacant land" of Palestine, that all of a sudden made it all attractive.
Israel must ethnically cleanse Gaza, West Bank and the Golan.
Forcibly remove all Arabs except those who swear allegiance to Israel.
Hamas, Iran, Hezbollah and Abbas
conveniently attacked Israel ... on Obama’s “green light”.
