Skip to comments.Obama: Time is Running Out for Peace "Bibi, if not now, when?" President Obama says

One day ahead of his meeting Monday with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, U.S. President Barack Obama is urging the Israeli leader to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA).
Speaking to Bloombergs Jeffrey Goldberg in an interview published Sunday, Obama warned that time was running out to negotiate a peace agreement.
Obama further claimed that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is sincere about his willingness to recognize Israel and its right to exist.
We are coming to a point, though, over the next couple of months where the parties are going to have to make some decisions about how they move forward, he said. And my hope and expectation is that, despite the incredible political challenges, that both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Abbas are able to reach past their differences and arrive at a framework that can move us to peace.
Pressing Netanyahu not to put off the hard decisions on peacemaking, Obama invoked the prime ministers nickname and paraphrased the words of revered Jewish sage Hillel.
When I have a conversation with Bibi, thats the essence of my conversation, he told Goldberg. If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who? How does this get resolved?

Bibi obviously doesn't like the taste of Obama's "Chicken Kiev"
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama is a blithering leftist idiot. No one should listen to him. You just “manage” people like Obama so they do as little damage as possible.
Israel is trying to live in peace for going on 3,000 years, well I guess 1,400 years trying to live in peace from islamics.
No one does
Hey, they have only been working on the Arab-Israeli Peace Process since 1948, so time is running out?
Time is running out for whom ?
russia is invading and yoiu are still hung up on destroying the jews
Russia is on the march. They don’t see who will stop them.
Everything he’s asserting is predicated on the false notion that Israelis are the impediment to peace.
He’s focused like a laser,on advancing the Muslim agenda worldwide.
Abbas needs to put that in writing with his blood...
If he actually did agree to Israel right to exist, he would be dead within 24 hours...
He knows it, Obama knows, it, Bibi knows it...
Hmmmmm. Obama reminds me of a guy who runs from a barroom brawl...but he smacks his wife and kids around with aplomb. ..sho ‘nuff.
um... who is it that is begging for peace with the arabs? for centuries???
Geez this guy is a royal ass hole.
How is Isreal goign to make peace with people who continue to say they will wipe them off the face of the earth?
Well, his fellow commie Vlad Putin apparently doesn’t.
You can’t make peace with someone who is determined to kill you.
That’s a good point.
Obama is not fit to be in the same room with Prime Minister.
“Bibi, if you like Israel, you und das Juden can keep Israel und der PLO vill be glad to gif each Jew a nice, varm brausbad.”
Never the onus on the “Palestinians”.
If Obama knew the fate he’s bringing down on himself, he’d do a 180° turn so quickly it’d make the heads of the entire liberal establishment spin all at once.
