As described in Y-Net, in a recent interview with the New York Times, Barack Obama said this concerning Benjamin Netanyahu:
"If he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises, including taking on the settler movement."I wonder what "difficult compromises" Obama has in mind? Does releasing hundreds of terrorists and murderers back into the local Arab population so that they can be hailed as heroes count? Or, was that just soo yesterday?
I have to say, I am just sick to death of progressive-left indifference to vital Jewish concerns.
Southern Israel was pummeled for over ten years with rocket fire and they said hardly a word in opposition. Leftists often claim that those rockets were harmless, but they ruin lives! The entire southern part of the country is constantly running into bomb shelters and these people who claim to be your allies could not care less. Or, really, I should say was running into bomb shelters. For now much of the region has been evacuated and for obvious reasons there is much reluctance to return.
So, how can Israelis in the south conduct business? How can they work their farms? How can they possibly live their lives while Arabs are shooting rockets over their heads and tunneling under their kibbutzim for the purpose of the murder and kidnapping of Jews?
And now we have a president of the United States who still seems to believe that the real problem is that Jews are living in the wrong places within the Land of Israel.
Barack Obama honestly believes that for there to be peace between the Arab majority and Jewish minority in the Middle East that what is necessary is for the Jewish Prime Minister of the lone, sole Jewish state to force Jewish people to not move into, or build on, the land of Judea.
Does this sound reasonable to you?
Because, I have to say, to me it sounds racist as hell.
Almost the entire Middle East is Judenrein and here is the American president insisting that Judea must be free of Jews to the extent that some worthless gangster-terrorist-theocrats demand that it be so. This is the land where Jewish people come from and within the land from which civilization, itself, began. Jews lived throughout the entire Middle East for thousands of years and now we are pushed into Fortress Israel as a matter of self-protection and Barack Obama thinks that we have not given up enough land.
What I say is that this president of the United States is a lame duck and, given his unconscionable support for Islamist groups like the Brotherhood, cannot to be trusted.
The problem here is not "the settlements."
The problem is 14 centuries of incessant Arab-Muslim Koranically-based hatred towards Jews.
That is the source of the problem and nothing else.
