Today, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on visiting Washington D.C., USA, today, handed what just sounded like with THANKS to conservative talk radio show host Rush Limbaugh, handed to President Barak Obama his “rear end” to him, to put it mildly in light of yesterday’s speech that was given by President Obama on both Israel and the Middle East in regards to this whole issue of an “Arab spring” of protests in the streets of a number of Arab nations.
From the Alert Net website:”WASHINGTON, May 20 (Reuters) – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Friday he was prepared to make compromises to peace but he rejected President Barack Obama’s proposal that Israel return to its 1967 borders.
Obama and Netanyahu met at the White House a day after the U.S. president endorsed a longstanding Palestinian demand on the borders for their future state.
In remarks to reporters in the Oval Office, Obama said he had reiterated the principles he had laid out on Thursday.
Both men acknowledged differences between their positions.
Obama said the United States and Israel had an extraordinary bond. Netanyahu said he and Obama could still work together for peace.”
I would love to be a fly sitting on a wall listening to what is REALLY is going on in regards to this meeting between Prime Minister Netanyahu and President Obama. It would not be of any surprise if Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed his outrage over President Obama’s speech in much more detailed way.
Frankly, I cannot blame Prime Minister Netanyahu being “very angry” over the course of the last day over the tone and direction of President Obama’s speech, which simply comes from not only from Prime Minister Netanyahu himself, but also from a nation that for sixty-three years has had to STAND UP to those neighbors who wanted to see that very same Israel destroyed.
From Yahoo.com website:”Obama said in his speech on Thursday that the United States supports creation of a Palestinian state based on the border lines that existed before the 1967 Six Day War in which Israel forces occupied east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza. The comment drew angry criticism in Israel, and Netanyahu made clear after meeting with Obama that the idea was unacceptable.
“We cannot go back to those indefensible lines,” said Netanyahu.
Both Obama and Netanyahu said they shared a desire to get to peace and downplayed disagreements. “We may have differences here and there,” Netanyahu said.
But there was no sign of resolution of the many barriers that stand between Israel and the Palestinians, more now than last September when Obama brought the two parties together to call for a peace deal within a year — a deadline that now looks all but unattainable.
Netanyahu said his nation could not negotiate with a newly constituted Palestinian unity government that includes the radical Hamas movement, which refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist. He said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas had to choose between continuing the deal with Hamas and making peace with Israel.
Obama agreed that Hamas “is not a partner for a significant realistic peace process” and said Palestinians would have to resolve that issue among themselves.
Yet both Obama and Netanyahu emphasized a need to make some kind of progress, against all obstacles, as changes sweep the Arab world.
“History will not give the Jewish people another chance,” Netanyahu said.”
I give Prime Minister Netanyahu A LOT OF CREDIT that he had both the guts and the courage to say what needed to be said to President Obama that Israel will not agree to any efforts that could put its very life as a nation into danger. Also Prime Minister Netanyahu had to give President Obama a much-needed teaching lesson on the subject of Middle Eastern politics. Goes to show that the USA has a President who lacks TRUE LEADERSHIP and KNOWLEGE to what is REALLY GOING ON over in both Israel and the Middle East. If Prime Minister Netanyahu was not Prime Minister of Israel, he would have made IMHO an excellent Republican Presidential candidate in the United States of America Presidential campaign.
Even a few days ago, Ben Stein had said this much more better then I could on the whole subject of the Middle East and the recent mass protests in the Arab countries in the Middle East, called the “Arab Spring”. Frankly, I cannot blame him, because he senses that there is MORE to all then what is going on in the last couple of months on the Arab street.
“Ben Stein thinks the “Arab Spring” may not be something to celebrate. Rather, it’s something to worry about.”
All that both Prime Minister Netanyahu and Israel have been saying in all of this is that could very well be an effort of Iran to gain more power in the Middle East in order to create a new Muslim caliphate. Also for Jews and Christians, this MUST BE A WAKEUP CALL to support and stand by the land that gave to the world its greatest book, the Bible.
