    .......For the record, President Barack Obama lines up on the right side of history in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict; and Benjamin Netanyahu rebukes him over 1967 plan:



    On the FoxNews.com homepage, the headline was slightly different: "Obama Shocker: Backs Palestinians, Tells Israel to Pull Back to '67 Borders." I respectfully disagree -- this was as predictable as the sun rising every morning and setting every evening. But what is not clear is whether or not American Jews will interpret Obama's speech as insightfully as those reporting on it from the right side of the aisle. For the majority of American Jews are liberal, do not take kindly to the reporting of Fox News and The Drudge Report, and are ill-informed on the impact of Obama's words and actions vis-à-vis Israel's survival.

    The possibility of four more years of Obama is a real issue for American Jews to consider.

    Talk is cheap... when it comes down to it, the US will still continue to arm Israel...

    he actually just sided with the UN.. but it's political suicide.. If he was going to
    fall on his sword, I would have hoped he would have done it on the behalf of his own
    people. Why bite the bullet for a conflict with no possible resolution. The
    Israelis will never co-exist on an equal footing with any Arab nation. Their entire
    settlement.. the entire country is stolen land.. By all logic, Israel should be
    located somewhere in Europe.. perhaps on land previously occupied by Germany.
    Why should Obama.. so close to election time.. risk his immediate political
    future for such a hopeless situation? Whoever advised him to turn his focus to
    Israel set him up for a fall. My 2 cents.​

    The African American community wants to know who sides with us!:em4200:

    We voted for Barrack Hussein Obama,
    not to be a Black leader,
    but to benefit all Americans,
    us not discluded or neglected,
    since we have been "diners at the table" for the past 24 years

    The supporters of his campaign,
    the NAACP, and the Urban League,
    are still waiting for a real commitment about
    jobs, bailouts fo subprime mortgage ripoff victims, an end to union bashng,
    and the assured security of medicaid and medicare

    The Arabs in Palestine did not vote for him but they have "cousins with much oil"


    And what the Palestinian people actualy want is a seperate state,
    free from oppresion and trade abuse.

    So do these Arabs feel that the president is siding with them?

    What does the news say?

    Mr. Obama has not directly discussed his new peace effort with the Palestinians, including the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, though lower-level American diplomats have. The Palestinian reaction has so far been relatively muted. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a spokesman for Mr. Abbas, issued a statement after Friday’s meeting at the White House saying that Mr. Netanyahu’s remarks amounted to “an official rejection of Mr. Obama’s initiative, of international legitimacy and of international law.”

    Mr. Obama outlined his proposals in part to put the Israeli-Palestinian divide in the context of American support for democratic changes in the Arab world, but also to try to head off a worsening of the conflict as the Palestinians campaign to win recognition as an independent state at the United Nations General Assembly meeting in September.

    Mr. Obama warned that such steps would be little more than symbolic and could prove counterproductive.
    The meeting between him and Mr. Netanyahu — their seventh since Mr. Obama took office in 2009 — was

    If it were not for the world dominance of the,
    religion "of the book",

    it would be apparent to every nation,
    every culture,
    every ethnicity,
    and every race,

    that Isreal is nothing more then a colony!

    I agree ^. His speech was really pro Israel however, though not entirely in lock step with them.

    .......Not only that brother, they are not even the real indigenous Jews of the Bible, but some spin off from the Khazar group.

    The Khazars were a powerful people who once ruled over portions of Russia and Eastern Europe. They (or at least many of their leaders), converted to Judaism and were eventually defeated and disappeared. Their descendants were either assimilated amongst the Jews or became Sabbath-keeping and other “divergent” Christians, many (if not most), of whom, migrated to the west and to North America.
