Obama tells Israel: Go back to 1967 borders (and Israel tells Obama to shove it!)
MSNBC ^ | 5/19/2011 | msnbc

Posted on 05/19/2011 12:50:21 PM PDT by tobyhill

In a major speech that sought to reframe U.S. policy in the Mideast, President Barack Obama endorsed a key Palestinian demand Thursday for the borders of its future state and prodded Israel to accept that it can never have a truly peaceful nation that is based on "permanent occupation."

Obama's urging that a Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders — those that existed before the Six-Day War in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — marked a significant shift in U.S. policy and seemed certain to anger Israel.

Israel has said an endorsement of the 1967 borders would prejudge negotiations. Obama will meet at the White House on Friday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

It should be obvious that in any honest proposal the borders should be a primary subject for negotiation. Obama has done what we all expected, stab Israel in the back and reveal himself as a pali partisan.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

While your at it, pray for our country. Obama just emboldened the Palestinians and Israel haters. This could get real ugly.

This stunt has essentially guaranteed that there will be no peace or agreement in the near future. By making this statement Obama has insured that the call for pre-1967 borders will be an unyielding position by the Arab states for a long time to come.

Obama isn’t totally to blame. He does have millions of supporters plus the ass kissing MSM. If he didn’t have that, Berry would just be some punk in Chicago.

Obama received 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008. I guess he has decided either a) I can win in 2012 without the Jewish vote and without Jewish money or b) I can't win in 2012 with the Jewish vote and Jewish money so I might as well get Israel while I am still TOTUS.

To all you Jews who helped elect Obamanation: a)say Shalom to your nation b) Obama was a Muslim before Obama wasn't a Muslim.

Hussein Obama is a Jew-hating Muslim who takes his orders from former Nazi Zonderkommando and self hating Jew George Soros. Who is surprised that our first Muslim president throws Israel under a bus? Hussein Obama wants us to believe that the Arab narrative about being an oppressed people under the boot of the Israeli war machine is true. It is the opposite of truth. The Arabs are murdering savages who have rejected every genuine opportunity for peace because they hate the Jews and want to finish Hitler’s work. Obama and George Soros want to help them.

2012 cant come soon enough.

I believe that Israel should withdraw to the 1967 Lines.

The Quid Pro Quo would be for Islam to withdraw to the 632 boundaries of Medina.

All churches in conquered territories will be returned to the religion they had been taken from.

How about the borders from 968 BC instead. Hint: this is when Israel controlled Amman and Damascus as part of their promised country.

Those who believe Jews won’t vote for Hussein next year because of his attempts to sell-out Israel are kidding themselves. American Jews are leftists FIRST, Jews only when convenient or profitable.

Yup. Friend of mine named Gomberg who is very conservative
refers to Streisand and the like as “Poodle Jews”.

Obama should go back to where he was and what he was doing in 1967. Then he should STFU.

Nice riposte ;-) But Eurabia would argue that in 632, Palestine was not a Jewish Nation. Perhaps before 63 BCE when Israel was a Sovereign Nation.

Absolutely outrageous!!! The pre-'67 Israeli borders are indefensible. Despite his platitudes, Obama doesn't give a hoot about the future of Israel. That's been evident for years; just look at the Islamists and pro-Islamists he hung out with back in Chicago.

This could be the first time an American government official ever referred to Israel's current position vis-a-vis the Palis as a "permanent occupation." The vocabulary is yet another tipoff as to what Obama is thinking.

Incidentally, Mark Levin just tore into the Jewish 'Rats in Congress who are standing right with Zero in their attitudes toward the Israel-Pali conflict.

Oh, so now he wants to meet with Bibi. As so eloquently put earlier: FUBO.

I didn't hear him use the prefix pre! Maybe he wants Israel to reoccupy the Sinai?

“Those who believe Jews won’t vote for Hussein next year because of his attempts to sell-out Israel are kidding themselves. American Jews are leftists FIRST, Jews only when convenient or profitable.”

Most Jewish Democrats are leftists FIRST, Americans SECOND, and Jews LAST, and I am speaking as a person of Jewish identity.

There are four denominations of Judaism: Reform, Orthodox, Conservative, and Democrat. The latter worships a Great Donkey and prays to the Holy Trinity: Franklin Roosevelt the Father, Barack Hussein the Son, and Lyndon Johnson the Holy Ghost. Eric Yoffie of the Union for “Reform Judaism” said in fact that gun control is part of the Jewish religion—I wonder in what Torah he found that one. Most Jewish Democrats would vote for Hitler if he ran with a D instead of an N after his name.

“Tried calling Schmuck Schumer’s office this afternoon. They weren’t even picking up.”

Schumer’s nickname is Putzhead, per former Senator Alfonse D’Amato. Then again, Schmuck and Schumer both start with the same three letters.

I remember it from Schindler’s List. “Poodle Jew” is
flattering in comparison!
