Obama tries to reassure Jews at AIPAC (many suck it up)
** His speech is live onÂ C-SPAN.
Today Obama repeated his plan to push Israel back to the 1967 border. Obama said it was “nothing new.” That wasÂ another Obama lie.
Obama’s declaration that the U.S./Israel relationship was ironclad does not reassure me. I am dubious about Obama’s promise. Obama’s idea of ironclad is sketchy at best. After all, in 2008 Obama vowed at the AIPAC conference that Jerusalem would remain the undivided capital of the state of Israel if he was elected. He walked back on that promise the next day. In 2009 at Cairo University (with the Muslim Brotherhood in attendance at his invitation), he called on Israel to stop all the settlement activity, and created a crisis in US/Israel relations when Israel approved 1600 houses in Jerusalem. And of course last week, Obama caused fright and worry amongst freedom-loving peoples when he endorsed the Auschwitz borders. I am glad that he said that the UN won’t create “Palestine,” and while this is elemental, with Obama, you gotta be happy with any crumb. When he said that Israel’s isolation in the international arena won’t be sanctioned or tolerated, he did not expand upon that. So while his propaganda ministers will spin this for the Jewish campaign dollar, when you really look at it, it’s a lot of empty rhetoric. He used AIPAC today to reassure the Jews ……. and many bought the ruse.
Obama’s Propaganda minister in chief, the ‘post American’ Muslim agit-prop Fareed Zakaria from CNN, calls it all “fair & balanced”. No surprises here.Â Readers are reminded that earlier this month, it wasÂ revealed Zakaria has met with Obama to advise him on foreign policy matters. Â Â Read more:Â (Newsbusters)
But that was when he needed the Jewish vote.
Last week Obama told Israel to turn over the Holy Land to theÂ Hamas-Farah alliance and divide Jerusalem.
Today Obama once again spoke to AIPAC. HeÂ did not mention Jerusalem.
And, he forgot to apologize for lying to the leading Jewish American conference for breaking his promise to Israel. (GWP)
Israeli Arabs prefer to live in Israel but Oppose Existence of Jewish State
Funny how Israel is the one getting blamed for being an “obstacle to peace” who needs to make more concessions. Peace? What peace?
(INN) Two thirds of Israeli Arabs say they are opposed to Israel’s continued existence as a Jewish and Zionist state, a special poll commissioned by Haifa University released this week said. The poll also shows, among other things, that nearly 30% would like to see Israel disappear altogether, and that 38% do not believe that there was a Holocaust.
The poll was directed by Haifa University professor Sami Smooha on behalf of Haifa University’s Jewish-Arab Center, part of an annual project by the Center to determine relations between Jews and Arabs in Israel. Smooha will officially present the poll and his analysis of the results at a special conference next Sunday at the Center. Those polled included a scientific sampling of 700 Israeli Arabs 18 years of age and older, including representative samples of the Druze and Bedouin population. The Jewish portion of the poll queried 700 Israeli Jews 18 and over, including new immigrants, Hareidim and residents of Judea and Samaria.
The poll highlighted a clear radicalization of Israeli Arabs. Over 62% said that Israelis “are foreigners who do not fit in in this region, and they will eventually leave the country.” Another 71% said that “the Jews are primarily responsible for the ‘nakba,’ the term applied to the fleeing of the newly declared state of Israel by tens of thousands of Arabs in 1948.
Perhaps as a reaction to the hostile feelings displayed by Israeli Arabs revealed by the poll, Israeli Jews told pollsters that they felt “distant” from Israeli Arabs. Over 68% of Jews said they felt this distance, and 67.9% said that they avoided driving through Arab towns and villages. Over half, however, said they would have no problem with their boss being Arab, and nearly 60% agreed that the establishment of the State of Israel was a major “tragedy” for Arabs.
In presenting the initial findings of the poll Tuesday, Smooha said that despite the differences, the poll showed that the majority of Jews and Arabs were committed to coexistence.
