Obama team warns U.S. lawmakers: Expect confrontation with Israel
Haaretz ^ | 08/04/2009 | Aluf Benn

Posted on 04/07/2009 8:06:26 PM PDT by Ooh-Ah

In an unprecedented move, the Obama administration is readying for a possible confrontation with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by briefing Democratic congressmen on the peace process and the positions of the new government in Israel regarding a two-state solution.

The Obama administration is expecting a clash with Netanyahu over his refusal to support the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

In recent weeks, American officials have briefed senior Democratic congressmen and prepared the ground for the possibility of disagreements with Israel over the peace process, according to information recently received. The administration's efforts are focused on President Barack Obama's Democratic Party, which now holds a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.

People substitute wishful thinking when they buy tickets on “winning horses.” And, when they’re sure they know what’s going to happen in the future.

As to Obama, words don’t amount to a hill of beans. He’s gonna have to learn to “swing his teleprompter” if he wants to hit anything.

And, we’ve seen the same “schtick” before with Carter. (Came 1980, lots of Jews, and blue collar workers, went for Reagan. That’s why Carter lost. And, was near tears when Reagan was sworn in. For Reagan’s first inaugural, he also spent time “praising out system” where power shifts from one man to the other.)

As to Obama’s trip; it was a big nothing. And, by the time he left, Sarkozy and Merkel were fit to be tied! Indeed, that was a stinko suggestion to pull Turkey into the EU. And, it won’t happen!

As to North Korea’s launch, it gave Israel an opening to see how words fail to work. And, anything out of the UN, they’ll be able to handle! Heck, the UN wasn’t even on board Obama’s words to turn on North Korea.

Too bad the republican party can’t fix itself! Look at all the races where we had to hold our noses to vote!

I know quite a few catholics who voted for President Partial-Birth and when you tried to calmly tell them what his views on abortion were, they got very angry. I think it was because they knew what they were doing was wrong.

What does bother me is that the Obamas have young children, and it is really important, IMHO, that the children have a church home. Not enough children are taken to church regularly, and look what is happening to our society.

Then, frankly, you're a better person than I. I will not lose a single moment of peace over how the Obamas raise their children. They will reap what they sow.

Most important vote: the God of Israel

Final say on it all: the God of Israel

He has many things to say including Zechariah 12:1-3

Christians should know to keep their hands off Israel and Jerusalem.

Nonbelievers and muzzies don’t pay any attention. So be it.


Zechariah 12:1-3 (King James Version)

1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Yep. Could be the reason America is reaping such chaos now. Our gov’t has been trying to force the division of Israel, against the will of the God of Israel.

Allah wants to destroy the Jew and the world is working hard at it.

To: patriot preacher
Should the United States Government oppose Israel or “confront” them in a way that endagered their very existence, that would be the LAST mistake our nation would make. The hand of God has remained on our nation — despite MANY offenses to Him — BECAUSE we’ve been a protector and friend to Israel. If we turn our backs on them, God will take His hand off us — and woe be unto us then...

Very true statement indeed. Israel does not exist because the United States supports it. Israel exist because GOD Almighty has promised it. Israel was reborn in a day because GOD promised it. He also promises to punish those who do her harm and history shows that to be very true indeed.

quite a number of prophetic sources have asserted that if/when the USA

forces Israel to divide it’s land again . . . perhaps even ‘merely’ Jerusalem . . .

THEN

the New Madrid fault will kick off in a huge way and divide the USA wholesale from the gulf to the Great Lakes with the lakes then emptying out into the new gulf that reaches up to them.

I think Stan Deyo has some maps . . . admittedly from questionable seer types not Christian prophetic types . . . however, they agree . . .

. . . didn’t find the collection of maps he used to have readily accessible.

Have posted lots of articles on a few threads . . . some of which refer to such earth changes and one of which has a link to a map.

Cheers.

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.

They see Israel as an embarrassment to their views that all war is evil, including self defense. They think that if there is no identified Jewish State, then no one will blame them or mark them as being warmongers.

They say :”I know in my gut what is right.” and by that they mean they must back non-violence, no matter the outcome.

When SHTF, they will blame Republicans, conservatives, Christians and Bush. If you attempt to persuade them differently, their eyes narrow, they regard you askance and it is obvious that you have just been placed on the enemies/evildoers list.

I agree with the POS part, but nowhere near 90% of US Jews voted for him. The real percentage was probably somewhere in the 60s, still too high but lower than some inaccurate 'Rat exit polling indicated.

If you want to use the 90% figure, that would apply to US Muslims, from what I saw on FR yesterday.

the ironic thing is that in 2000, Bush was helped big time by the muslim vote, as they thought based on his father and Jim Baker that he’d be tough on Israel as opposed to Gore who picked a Jew for VP. He won the muslim vote overwhelmingly in FL and that gave him the election.

Bingo. You get the prize for clear analysis. Obama, by the way, was religious only to use it as a politica front and to get street creds when a community organizer. He’s about as religious (except for how he can use it politically) as Sadam Hussein was. Obama is a religious user rather than a religious consumer.
