President Barack Obama was said to have pledged to Saudi Arabia that the United States would force Israel to withdraw from eastern Jerusalem and the entire West Bank by 2012.
Diplomatic sources said Obama relayed a pledge to Saudi King Abdullah that he would take any measure to ensure an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank and Jerusalem over the next 18 months. They said Obama relayed the pledge to Abdullah during the president's trip to Riyad in June 2009, about four months after he assumed office, in exchange for Abdullah's help to arrange for the end of the Taliban war in Afghanistan.
And everyone thinks Obama's economy will be what destroys America.
Not in a thousand years.
Does a thousand years work for ya ?
Obama says one thing to his Jewish contributors/supporters, and a different thing when the fools are safely all out of the room.
“dead” man walking. Imagining a vain thing.
So true. He was just reporting back to his boss. They want a lot for the $700 million in (offshore) campaign contributions. They fund EVERY mosque built in the west.
The president of the United States has no right to speak on behalf of Israel, a soverign nation, or to give away any of their land. Especially their capital!!
“...in exchange for Abdullah’s help to arrange for the end of the Taliban war in Afghanistan.”
Hey, Obaba, how’s THAT working out for ya?
As for Jerusalem, you need to talk to God about that. No, NOT that moon god, but the REAL one, you know, who loves the Jews!
Amen to that!
Talk about hubris.
Second point, why would anyone believe what this guy says?
ah, so that was what the bowing and scraping was about...
SA needs to withdraw from the oil fields and turn them over to the US.
Old man that I am,
I’ll volunteer to go to Israel to fight to keep Jerusalem from the moosies.
“he would take any measure to ensure an Israeli withdrawal”
How about taking “any measure” against Iran to ensure it doesn’t deploy nuclear weapons? At this juncture, these tough words lack credibility: after all the bowing and apologizing he’s done since taking office, Barry has no street cred!
The article states that the Saudis are funding the Taliban. The Saudis and neighbors are afraid of Iran.
Zero promised the Saudis “The sources said the president, reaffirming what Holbrooke said, pledged to adopt the Saudi plan for an Arab-Israeli settlement, which called for full Israeli withdrawal to the 1967 borders, a Palestinian state and the return of Palestinian refugees to their homes in what was now Israel.”
Okay, logically, if the Saudis are funding the Taliban, then Israel has said they will take out Iran’s nukes, but no on any land agreements (Israel holds ALL the cards here), and zero has agreed to back Israel for the Saudis and neighbors in exchange for the Saudis withdrawal of support for the Taliban so the US can get out of Afghanistan giving zero all the glory and win the next election.
