Obama’s November Surprise

There is growing speculation that President Obama will spring a diplomatic surprise on Israel during the interregnum between the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 8 and his departure from office in January.

Some say the surprise will be a speech laying down parameters for a final settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute or some type of formal censure of Israeli settlements in the West Bank, but the scenario generating most discussion is a decision to support, or perhaps not to veto, a UN Security Council resolution recognizing a Palestinian state.

This would be a bombshell.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if Nobama does recognize a Palestinian state. And he will probably get another Nobel prize for it even though through his actions the Middle East is a blood bath.

    What a joke. Plaster the fakestinians when they get out of line..no-one gives a fiddler’s fuck about the creeps..enough of this lifetime of bullshit I’ve had to endure listening to these jooo-crazed chimpanzees…

      I say do it.

      Establish the official border, and wait. When (not if) the official state of Palestine launches an attack on Israel, wipe them out in the counterattack.

        and claim ALL the newly cleansed-of-Muslim-Palestinians land for Israel, full stop.

    Emperor Barry has his eye on some sort of UN gravy train sinecure to keep his ego topped up for years to come, Just can’t let go, can he?

      It is his back-up plan should he fail to remain for a third term.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Methinks Trump has something up his sleeve to short-circuit anything like that from ever happening. Something like “the truth about Barack Obama” for example, something so game-changing that the past eight years of legislation could be entirely nullified.

  • CoolTolerance

    Not important what he does anymore. It would only be another decision overturned by Trump in January. Another failure added to Obama’s report card.

    • The Deplorable Rosenmops

      May it be so.

      • CoolTolerance

        I am waiting for the traditional OCTOBER surprise. I think it will be Wikileak.

        • BillyHW

          I’m thinking it will be Willy-leak.

          • Justin St.Denis

            LOL. Indeed! Bill “The Walking Corpse” Clinton looks like he’s going to choke his last breath any moment.

    • V10_Rob

      I have serious doubts the Palestinian leadership even wants statehood.

      Their formal administration of Gaza and the like indicates no real desire to deal with the daily grind of governing. Building infrastructure, encouraging industry, tackling social issues… That’s boring. Being revolutionaries, now that’s exciting.

      • CoolTolerance

        I agree. They have too much free money to lose.

      • Justin St.Denis

        I suspect you are right on that score.

  • mobuyus

    So it turns out obama was”palistinian”.

  • andycanuck

    And Assh0le is going to be at Peres’ funeral as a speaker (unless I’m misremembering that part).

  • Obama will do anything to throw a monkey wrench in the works.

    I mean anything.

  • BillyHW

    It wouldn’t surprise me if he did this because he is a Muslim born in Kenya after all.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    In the end, it won’t mean a thing. As the Bible says, Israelis are a stiff necked people. They will say no and whatever the UN does to enforce this will be met with resistance by a majority of Americans, as well as those governments that are counting on Israel to supply them with weapons and advanced technology. The UN will go under before Israel does.

  • NoBamaYoMama

    Obama can go to Hell! Hitlery will be right behind him!

    Then Israel needs to immediately bail out of the F-35 Tier-2 program and announce that, thanks but no thanks, we’re not going to a be a funding scheme to keep Lockheed afloat. Dassault just scored a big win with selling a large number of Rafale aircraft to India. So there are options. And they won’t do it, Russia or China will.
