Emanuel Says Obama Insists On Implementing Two State Solution, No Ifs, Ands, or Buts
Israel Policy Forum ^ | 4-16-09 | M. J. Rosenberg

Posted on 04/17/2009 10:53:05 PM PDT by STARWISE

Yedioth Achronoth, the largest circulation daily in Israel, reports today that President Obama intends to see the two-state solution signed, sealed and delivered during his first term.

Rahm Emanuel told an (unnamed) Jewish leader; "In the next four years there is going to be a permanent status arrangement between Israel and the Palestinians on the basis of two states for two peoples, and it doesn't matter to us at all who is prime minister."

He also said that the United States will exert pressure to see that deal is put into place.

"Any treatment of the Iranian nuclear problem will be contingent upon progress in the negotiations and an Israeli withdrawal from West Bank territory," the paper reports Emanuel as saying.

In other words, US sympathy for Israel's position vis a vis Iran depends on Israel's willingness to live up to its commitment to get out of the West Bank and permit the establishment of a Palestinian state there, in Gaza, and East Jerusalem.

Yedioth also reports that Obama is conveying his displeasure with the new Israeli government in several ways.

"US administration officials informed Netanyahu that President Obama will not be able to meet with him in early May, while the AIPAC conference is held in Washington.

The meeting between the new Israeli premier and the president of the United States is perceived in Israel as a sign that the formation process of the new government has been completed and as a salutation by Israel's close friend.

Netanyahu had hoped to capitalize on the opportunity and to meet with Obama during the annual AIPAC conference, but the Americans informed the Israelis that Obama was not going to be 'in town.'

That being the case, the inclination among Netanyahu's aides is to cancel his trip to attend the AIPAC conference and to try to secure a date for a meeting with Obama later in May.

"Sources in Washington also said that the Obama administration would not continue the tradition that developed during the Bush administration of hosting Israeli premiers many times during the year, sometimes with just a phone call's advance notice."

So far neither the White House or the Israeli government has commented on the report which, it should be noted, comes from Shimon Shiffer, one of Israel's most highly respected journalists.

NO. Retract that. He must grow and evolve and be a wise leader. He Just Must. Twere he shed, one after another the lowlifes around him and find that place or not.. that is the situation. The question is like in the 1930’s that ridding the others exposes even further what a fuerer can be. This is serious.

One way to take care of this situation is to make Patrick Fitzgerald aware that everyone is very interested in his ongoing investigation of Operation Boardgames.

Some help for those not up to speed.

Thanks for posting the link. I do not know how many hours I have spent digging into all the connections and players. There is no way Obama aint going to jail eventually. Plus it opens the door to all the election stuff too.

Being as the article is two days old have you seen any "new" news on how this is being taken?

Obama envoy: Two-state solution is only solution
A Palestinian state alongside Israel is the only way to end the Mideast conflict, President Barack Obama's Mideast point man said Friday, sending a stern message to Israel's hardline leaders, who have expressed misgivings about a two-state solution.
Snip..."A two-state solution is the only solution," Mitchell said after meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
It's just being reported on Friday...just in time for the weekend with little to no news coverage of the event.
And it isn't the only "solution". It's the only "solution" that Mr. Dunham will accept.

Is Mr. Dunham looking for his very own Nobel Peace Prize?

Europe and the rest of the Middle East will be real happy with that. Somebody needs to explain to Otrauma and the ballerina that the Iranians having nuclear weapons is a major worldwide threat. We have a Muslim maniac in the White House. Dear Lord, please help us. The world cannot afford this on-the-job training.

We are a perilous ally, and a more perilous benefactor.

Israel was once a media darling, a cover girl. Now can't get a date with 0bama. One hopes Israel has contingent plans for going it alone, because they are alone and have been for years...on a diminishing sliver of land between Devil and deep blue.

Eventually there will be hell to pay, and hell tends to consume not only evildoers, but those who enable evil.

I do not believe this nation can survive if Israel goes down. A world war began when an archduke went down, and Israel is more than an archduke.

This is where Republicans should pack up and go and meet with with the new Govt. of Israel.

( Just like the rats always do running to hug Castro, Chavez or some murderous thug in the middle east when a Republican is in the White House.)

And then announce to the world that our current criminal govt. does not stand with you, But that we always have and always will.

While I am opposed to it, since the end of the Cold War (New World Order) it has been the objective of the United States to support the formation of a State of Palestine next to Israel. It is not a policy that the U.S. is going to all together abandon.

My father in law who served in the Israeli Army advocates the two state solution.

His words to me on the issue were:

“My children are Jewish and traveled to an Israel at war, my grandchildren are Jewish and traveled to an Israel at war and I want their children to travel to an Israel at peace. If we do not make peace with those people now, there will not be an Israel in 100 or 1000 years.”

They’ve reduced Israel to a pea-sized spot on the vast middle eastern landscape and now they want to split the pea?

Ironic that Jews like Rahm Emmanuel are helping.

Emmanuel means “God with us”. Too bad he’s not with God.

It doesn’t. Both administrations work(ed) for the same New World Order that’s calling the shots.

I have to wonder if the teleprompter has been programed yet. These words do not have the sound that this comes down from Bama but up from Rahm, the scribe and enforcer.

I’m so relieved to see that Rahm and Obama support the Two-State Solution because I don’t think there’s any way that Red Staters and Blue Staters can continue to life together in peace.

Oh wait.

Bush Sr. and Baker were Arabists (arms & “grain credits” to Israel’s enemies); Bush Sr. was humiliated soon thereafter.

A war he stopped too early, wimping out on no new taxes, a race riot, and a pitiful loss to a deeply flawed opponent.

I think you may have that backwards. Pres GW Bush did the best with younger Jews. Older Jews are more likely to be lifelong New Deal Democrats who would never dream of voting Republican.


Young Jews More Likely To Vote GOP Than Their Elders

http://www.forward.com/articles/14481/

Polls indicate that younger Jewish voters are more inclined to vote Republican, with preliminary results indicating that 32% of Jews in the 18-49 age range supported Bush. In addition, the core constituency of the traditional Democratic Jewish base, senior citizens, is shrinking.
