I read this article over the weekend and was disgusted by what is obviously going on. In part, the article reads:
“President Barack Obama suggested Thursday that a Palestinian state based on Israel’s 1967 borders would be best for peace negotiations — a bold endorsement that seemingly goes against U.S. promises to Israel and adds fuel to an already intense debate surrounding Israeli-Palestinian relations.
Although Obama assured the U.S. commitment to Israel’s security is “unshakeable,” he called on the country to act “boldly to advance a lasting peace.”
“Obama’s support of Palestine’s demands for the borders that existed before the Six Day War in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza is a significant shift in the U.S.-Israeli policy.”
The article starts with a lie and goes downhill from there. It’s a classic case of Anti-Obama Hysteria. George W Bush said exactly the same thing as Obama did, but, strangely, was not exposed to the same vitriol as is being heaped upon Obama.
Allan West’s grandstanding is a classic case in point He just hasn’t comprehended that US presidents have consistently maintained the same position. He then entertains us with more stupidity:
“The creation of a Hamas-led Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 borders signals the most egregious foreign policy decision his administration has made to date, and could be the beginning of the end as we know it for the Jewish State,” he said.
“The pre-1967 borders endorsed by President Obama would deny millions of the world’s Jews access to their holiest site and force Israel to return the strategically important Golan Heights to Syria, a known state-sponsor of terrorism,” West continued. “Make no mistake, there has always been a Nation of Israel and Jerusalem has been and must always be recognized as its rightful capital.”
[Note to Allan West: Israel DID NOT EXIST for 1900 years and Jerusalem was not the capital of that non-existent state.]
We also have these gems of stupidity from Jay Sekulow of The American Center for Law and Justice, who also seem to disregard the fact that Obama was only re-stating America’s position, as propounded by previous presidents, and goes on to create another anti-Obama fantasy.
The American Center for Law and Justice added that Obama’s decision “rewards Hamas — a terrorist group that vows to eliminate Israel.”
“President Obama is not the negotiator-in-chief for the Middle East and to make sweeping demands and characterizations not only hurts the peace process, but damages U.S.-Israeli relations,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ.
It is pretty apparent to me that the hysterical anti-Obama propaganda has been ginned up by Israel, through it’s Jewish, Christian and Conservative stooges in America. It’s hypocrisy, pure and simple – a deliberate and disgusting attempt to demean an American President – in an attempt to pressurize him into bending to Israel’s demands.
So much for “America the Great”. Israel’s stooges are turning us into “America, the lap-dog of Israel”.
