Will Obama Try to Blackmail Israel?

As Vice President Biden arrived in Israel this week, word leaked about yet another “peace plan” designed by the Obama administration. There isn’t much new in it. According to The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. might support a UN Security Council resolution calling on “both sides to compromise on key issues,” and it might involve the Middle East Quartet. Israel would be told to stop building in the territories and recognize East Jerusalem as the capital of a Palestinian State. The Palestinians would be told to recognize Israel as a Jewish state and give up the “right of return” for the original 1948/49 refugees and their descendants.

Just do it and voila! Problem solved.

    Obama’s objectives seems to parallel those of the ayatollahs

      If the Palestinians are in control of Jerusalem they will attempt to destroy it just as ISIS has destroyed ancient historical sites and artifacts.

        In 1949 and the 1950’s Jordan tore down a number of synagogues in the eastern half of Jerusalem.

        And back in Israeli control, the Arabs have been caught doing things to try to destroy historical sites a number of times.

    The Palestinian leadership doesn’t want peace. If it had to do something other than wage war against Israelites, if it had to actually govern and be responsible for it’s people, it would be a colossal failure. Their hold on power derives from the myth that they are all that stands between the Palestinian people and the dastardly Zionist boogeyman. If that threat is reduced or checked by an internationally recognized and enforced peace deal, then all those angry Palestinians will have some free time to start asking hard questions of their leaders, like where’s the money going. That, or they’ll be dragged down as traitors and collaborators. That’s why every time there is a serious deal on the table, they walk away and immediately launch a new offensive.

      The Palestinian cause exists to destroy Israel. It’s not about Jerusalem, though they are willing to take the land inch by inch.

        Muslims don’t share and they don’t play nice. Proof? Look at every country that they live in. Lots of problems getting along with others.

    Voila, no, the problem will not be solved. Jerusalem can ot now or ever be a dual capitol and the “palestinians” cannot ever be trusted to honour any, any, power sharing, territory sharing with Israel. Run the palis back to Jordan and let Israel carry on building their home.

      The two state solution for Palestine was Israel (Jewish) & Jordan (Arab).

    Some good news (hopefully he doesn’t change his mind):

    Donald Trump Has Decided Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel – The U.S. Has Not

    Oh well, no problem there./sarc
    Seriously, what world does Obama live in?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Proof that Obama is off his rocker. He keeps doing the same thing over and over again while expecting different results each time.

  • Netanyahu will not be moved.

    Maybe the USA can vote to move back their borders to 1958 to exclude Hawaii and Alaska , thus get rid of Palin and Obama .
