WASHINGTON (JTA) President Obama told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu he wants an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire in the war with Gaza, based on a process Israel has made clear it opposes.
The statement Sunday afternoon from the White House describing a phone call between the two leaders referred to cease-fire talks led in recent days by Secretary of State John Kerry which culminated in a proposal rejected unanimously on Friday by Israels security Cabinet.
Building on Secretary Kerrys efforts, the president made clear the strategic imperative of instituting an immediate, unconditional humanitarian cease-fire that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities based on the November 2012 ceasefire agreement, the statement said.
Israeli leaders rejected Kerrys proposal in part because it envisions talks with Hamas toward ends that Israel believes would reward a group it rejects as illegitimate, including opening borders.
Additionally, Israel wants any cease-fire to allow Israeli troops to continue tracking and destroying tunnels from the Gaza Strip into Israel, which Israel says were in place to facilitate a massive terrorist attack on Israeli communities.
Obama in his statement addressed some of the Israeli concerns, which were not made explicit in drafts of Kerrys proposal leaked to media over the weekend.
The president underscored the United States strong condemnation of Hamas rocket and tunnel attacks against Israel and reaffirmed Israels right to defend itself, the statement said. The president also reiterated the United States serious and growing concern about the rising number of Palestinian civilian deaths and the loss of Israeli lives, as well as the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza.
The statement from Obama also nodded to another Israeli demand, that Gaza be demilitarized, although it suggested this was a long-term goal.
The President stressed the U.S. view that, ultimately, any lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must ensure the disarmament of terrorist groups and the demilitarization of Gaza, it said.
So far the conflict launched July 8 has killed more than 1,020 Palestinians, most of them civilians, and 43 Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel.
He wants Israel to stop fighting back, even if the rockets are flying
We’ve got a plane load of Hondurans to deliver to you.
If Netenyahu told Obama to stick it up his marxist arse most of America would applaud.
Bibi, tell that incompetent slug you’ll do so the moment he declares an immediate humanitarian cease fire with Al-Queda and grounds all armed drones!
Tell him to use the back door by the garbage can.
Zero should have called Hamas with his demands.
It would be priceless to hear a recording of that conversation and then the comments of Obama and Netanyahu after they hung up.
People in Hell want ice water.
Tell Obama to shove it.
Let Hamas fight to the last man.
Then let Israel and Egypt form the first peace treaty on their own to close off Gaza forever.
Also, get Egypt to block the floatilla.
Tell him to go pound sand!
Tell Obama to ‘stuff it’.
Netanyahu please tell King Obama to go to hell.
The Ayatollah has spoken.
The Ayatollah of Rock-n-Rollah.
I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.
Any question that he’s a F’ng muzzi now ?????
Bibi sent a text to Obama in response; “And we in Israel want
you, Mr. President to get your own house in some semblance of order before you market your problem solving techniques unbidden, in countries you don’t believe have the right to even exist. Please inform me if greater detail to my message will be required. I will happily and expeditiously comply with your requests. Until then, Mr. President, kindly STFU!”
Hey Barac Obamma, Call the Hamas Terror Organization and tell them to back out of civilian households.
Oh wait, Barac is Hamas commander and chief.
I am preaching to the choir here, but one does not release things like this to the media when it is an ally of the US. It is horrible behavior.
Didn’t everyone know the ruler of the world knows what is best?
0bama needs to have a serious talk with his Hamas buddies.
From Bibi to Barry! Sierra Tango Foxtrot Uniform! Is that “humanitarian” enough for you Barry?
Gets my vote...
Bite me, Obama.
Hey Barack baby, they’re on to you...
And in turn, Netanyahu tells Obama to “kiss his kosher ass”.
End of story.
Which came first??
Hamas or the Democrats??
I would LOVE to say right to Obama’s ugly mug that he can take his demands and kiss my ass!!! And I think I speak for a lot of people who share that same sentiment..Israel doesn’t give a crap what Obama says, they know who he stands with and that is Hamas..NOT Israel
Obama’s new world order requires that the predators be on top. Obama’s utopia can only be achieved through totalitarian oppression, so he is ALWAYS on the side of the destructive aggressor.
Fortunately for Israel the rest of the world has even less respect for the Kenyan Kommie and his potato faced SOS than do his own ‘subjects’.
Netanyahu tells Obama to go **** himself.
That's exactly what I'm hoping Netanyahu said to Obama.
The future must not belong to those who slander bacon!!!
I'm guessing Bibi's post-call comments were limited to a simple hand gesture directed at the phone followed by an eruption of laughter from others in the room.
Hamas has a friend in the White House.
Good point. I don't know who this man in the White House is but he is NOT an American.
Hey, mr community organizer...bus in some of your rent-a-mob protesters and start shouting “racists”...that oughta work. You go with. Them and lead the pack.
Well, if the Current Occupant wants a cease-fire, he should lay down his weapons, and Netanyahu will agree to a bilateral cease-fire with the Current Occupant.
Can’t say it would be a wise idea for Netanyahu to agree to a cease-fire with Hamas, just yet. Make them fire off the last of their rockets, first, and interdict the resupply routes, so they cannot reload, and when Hamas runs out of ammunition, THEN talk about cease-fire.
Just walk away, Isreal.
He means that Israel should stop shooting at his true bosom buddies.
He doesn’t care that his true love is shooting at Jews.
F*** Y** Obama. Your compadres with ISIS are practicing ethnic cleansing against Christians, and you play golf and hob-nob with Hollywood reprobates to shake them down for money. You are utterly reprehensible.
Humanitarian a new word Obama just learned ,he thinks it will work for Illegals and he will try it on Israel now
That would be...perfect!

Amin Al Husseini seen inspecting his Hanzar Division made up exclusively of Muslims, mostly from the Crotia/Bosnia/Serbia region. They actively lead the genocide against Serbs, Serbian Jews and Gypsies.
Amin Al Husseini meets with Adolf Hitler in November 1942, weeks before the decision to implement the Final Solution which sent Europe's Jews to the gas chamber. The Third Reich provided Amin Al Husseini with a salary and appointed him Head of the Hanzar SS Division. The Hanzar Division was made of Nazi Muslims and implemented the genocide of 250,000 Serbs, Gypsies and Jews during WWII.
Amin Al Husseini shown here on a Nazi poster recruiting fellow Muslims to join Hitler in the fight against the West and the Jews. His disciples today include Yasser Arafat, Saddam Hussein and the leaders of Hamas, Al Qeida and Islamic Jihad.

Yasser Arafat became a disciple of Amin Al Husseini since the age of 17. Here: recent picture of Palestinian soldiers under the leadership of Arafat making the traditional Nazi salute.
Crypto-Islam is the secret adherence to Islam while publicly professing to be of another faith; people who practice crypto-Islam are referred to as "crypto-Muslims".
The word has mainly been used in reference to Spanish Muslims during the Inquisition (i.e., the Moriscos and their usage of Aljamiado). Related to this term are the concepts of crypto-Muslim subgroups, such as crypto-Sunni Muslims and crypto-Shia Muslims. Each of these Muslim subgroups has suffered persecution at various times under various leaders where it was advantageous to appear as part of the dominant (sometimes also Muslim) group.
Some mention was made of the concept during the 2008 U.S. Presidential Campaign in accusations directed towards President Barack Obama. From 1969 to 1971, Obama attended a secular Indonesian state primary school. Although Obama has family and ancestors with divergent religious views, he has repeatedly stated he is a Christian and has never been a Muslim.
Syed Abbas ibn Abd al-Muttalib (Arabic: ?????? ?? ??? ??????) (c. 566 c. 653 AD), a wealthy merchant, was a paternal uncle and companion of Muhammad, only a few years his senior. During the early years of Islam he protected Muhammad while he was in Mecca, but only officially adopted the religion after the Battle of Badr in 624 AD. He concealed his faith, from the Quraishites and was the principal advocate for the Aqaba Pledge. His descendants founded the Abbassid caliphate in 750 AD.
