Obama Speaks to Netanyahu, Offers to Mediate Ceasefire

U.S. President Barack Obama on Thursday told Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu he was worried that the fighting with Hamas in Gaza could escalate, and offered Washington’s help to broker a ceasefire, AFP reported.

"The president expressed concern about the risk of further escalation and emphasized the need for all sides to do everything they can to protect the lives of civilians and restore calm," the White House said in a statement.

"The United States remains prepared to facilitate a cessation of hostilities, including a return to the November 2012 ceasefire agreement."

The 2012 deal, brokered by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Egypt, ended the counterterrorism Operation Pillar of Defense.

The White House statement said that Obama told Netanyahu that he understood Israel had a right to defend itself and that he condemned rocket attacks by Hamas and other terrorist groups launched from Gaza.

The IDF continued Operation Protective Edge on Thursday, hitting 930 terror targets in Gaza.

Gaza terrorists, for their part, continued the rocket onslaught on Israel. While the terrorists have used long-range rockets and have hit almost as far as Haifa, the bulk of the rockets targeted southern Israel as has been the case for years.

Netanyahu’s got two middle fingers. One for each of Ogabe’s nostrils.

Of course. With his international legitimacy and Nobel Prize, he could fix this in an instant.

Don't go for it, Bibi....obliterate them.

Or, as Pantangele said: "Let's hit 'em now while we got the muscle"

Hell, he can’t even broker things in this country. I hope Bibi told him where to stick his help. His help would probably consist if giving Hamas the upper hand to the detriment of Israel.

And why would Israel want a closet Muslim with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood negotiating anything? Oh yeah, because of the great job he’s doing in our country.

Frank Marshal Davis taught him the virtues of Communism and Homosexuality

Professors Cloward and Piven taught him the virtues of creating a crisis for radical change

Rev. Jeremiah Wright taught him to say, "G-d D*mn America and Biblical Judeo-Christianity"

Saul Alinsky taught him to follow Lucifer, the man whose rebellion won himself a kingdom.

Lucifer taught him the Jews must be destroyed to usher in utopia

LOL!!! I’d settle for hearing Bibi say it in English. :-)

In the past, all cease fires have done is allow Israel’s enemies time to regroup and rearm.

Hamas has shown, by their repeated actions and behavior, that they simply aren’t interested in peace or “just getting along”.

And it’s probably fair to say most of the world is also getting tired of their continued lies and hypocrisy.

Israel has every right to crush these hate-filled monsters. Let loose the dogs of war, and don’t let up till the job is finished!!

Obama can go f himself.
