Skip to comments.Obama Pressured Israel to Stop Demanding Demilitarization of Hamas

The ceasefire agreement didn’t give Hamas everything it wanted, but it gave Israel nothing at all.
Israel’s insistence on demilitarizing Gaza fell by the wayside.
Why? Here’s one answer.
Nabil Shaath, a senior PLO official and confidante of PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas, said that Israel dropped the demand that Hamas be demilitarized, due to American pressure, in an interview with the Arabic Maan News Agency.
As usual the war was won on the battlefield and lost at the negotiating table. Which means it will have to be repeated in a year or two with a stronger Hamas.
Without demilitarizing Gaza, the entire war made no sense. Obama’s pressure on Israel and Netanyahu’s surrender made the purpose of the conflict into a temporary lull with lower level fighting.
The White Hut is a Cartoon in a Bizarro World..
I wished this was hyperbole.... IT’S NOT..
Sorry, Israel, for once again stabbing you in the back.
America is in a very weird place right now...
Those who bless Israel shall be blessed...those who curse Israel shall be cursed....we now live in a cursed nation on its way into the ash heap of history...the only good news is some of us wont have to deal with Obama in eternity.
Mac, yellow streak, daddy is mad because of all the tax payers money he sent to the rag heads to support them in their attacks on Israel.
Come on Mosaad,
Can’t you guys come up with dirt on this poser?
you all can’t be trying.
we keep waiting and hoping.
Gaza needs to be a steel and cement free zone. Live as Mad Mo did.
I just cannot I understand why Israel would not tell Kerry and Obama to “get lost” and go about the Gaza Operation without US input.
“I just cannot I understand why Israel would not tell Kerry and Obama to get lost and go about the Gaza Operation without US input.”
Blackmail. Obama has all sorts of ways to stick it to Israel and Bibi, including not supplying them with weapons, economic and psychological pressure, supporting Israel’s enemies, screwing Israel over in the U.N., you name it, Obama can come up with it. Plus Obama partners with the anti-semitic EU countries to further dump on Israel. Bibi is in an untenable position until Obama is out of office, and hopefully there will not be another anti-semitic Dem that wins the 2016 Presidential election. If Hillary wins, Israel is doomed.
The entire world knows (and half the world is laughing) about O being an enemy agent.
And all the press blather about his “not caring” or “just taking vacations all the time” .. is BS.
Whereever he is, whatever golf course he’s on, he’s still doing a whole lot of damage. Every single day.
Pray for America.
Israel knows Hamas will break the truce. Then the Israelis can get back to killing the muslims.
C'mon Bibi... speak up, speak out, & publicly fight back against these 2 assholes!
> The ceasefire agreement didnt give Hamas everything it wanted, but it gave Israel nothing at all.
Israel was confronted with jihadists boiling over on their northern borders, and with Zero’s, Lurch’s, and Plugs’ threats to get even tougher — not against the mutual enemies, but against Israel.
