Skip to comments.Obama: "A Full and Phased Withdrawal" by Israel to "1967 Lines"
Posted on 05/19/2011 12:13:16 PM PDT by Bobalu
US President Barack Obama dramatically changed US foreign policy - sandbagging Israel and aligning himself with PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas' preconditions for talks - when he called Thursday for a "full and phased withdraw of Israeli forces" from "occupied Palestinian lands" to the 1949 armistice borders that Israel's former Foreign Minister and UN ambassador in 1967, Abba Eban, referred to as the "Auschwitz borders."
Obama's comments came during his much anticipated policy address at the State Department in which he outlined the United State's new foreign policy for the Middle East and North Africa in light of the "spring revolutions" that have rocked the region.
Saying the world was tired of "nothing but stalemate" in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and complaining that "settlement activity continues" while the "Palestinians have walked away from talks," Obama said Israelis cannot obtain the dream of a democratic and Jewish state through "occupation."

Israel should ask the US to create peace by withdrawing to the 1846 Borders.
And then ban US Jews from visiting Israel.
Everyone was saying that that was what the whole Libya thing was about - setting a precedent of this “responsibility to protect” so that he could justify an attack on Israel.
If that happens, not a one of us should NOT be on the mall protesting.
Bibi Netanyahu needs to tell that Muzzie lovin Commie to stick it up his azz.
I hope to see this permanent change ---- again.
Obma is an idiot. I suppose we’ll give back our holdings from wars past?
Are you advocating violence? If so, you are violating FR posting policy.
The White House hides the text of controversial speeches, or delays them into insignificance. I couldn't find the transcript there.
Here is a version that might be more entertaining anyway...
Finally found it.
It might seem that way to someone whose reading comprehension skills are not at their peak.
Did you read the post I was reponding to or was your post more of a knee-jerk sort of thing?
Look for Obama to be destroyed by scandal in three...two...one...
Please excuse my ignorance, but could you please explain what you mean by “1846 borders”?
Thanks in advance.
No kidding. One has to wonder whether the Birth Certificate came out because of this, and whether we decided to take out Bin Laden because of this.
The pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place when you take a step back and look at the whole picture.
To all our Liberal Jewish friends who vote Democrat by rote, and voted for Il Douche in major numbers.
This the change you hoped for?
The "1967" reference occurs in paragraph 62 of a 71 paragraph speech. He knew what firestorm it would ignite, and held way off on getting to it. He didn't even get to the subject per se until paragraph 55. Jerusalem is mentioned only once, in passing as a "wrenching and emotional issue" in paragraph 64.
The meme "The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves ... in a sovereign and contiguous state" pops up again. "Contiguous"? HOW? the area is in 3 distinct and very separate sections!
Already there. Just waiting for the official announcements. Obama will have more deaths on his hands then any human in the history of this planet. And that is quite an extensive list.
Mexican American War.
