Obama encouraged Â Israeli students to push their political leaders to “take risks” for peace.
Now that the applause has died down from President Barack Obama’s address to students in Jerusalem, Members of Knesset are coming out with their criticisms, with one lawmaker calling Obama’s speech “offensive to Netanyahu” and another saying it contained “filth.”
AnÂ Obama administration videoÂ highlighting the president’s plans for his Mideast trip depicts Jerusalem, the Golan and the West Bank – also known as Judea and Samaria – as non-Israeli territory.Â The White House has released what it says is a map of Israel. The only problem is that Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights are missing.
“It’s time for new, creative concepts to resolve the conflict in the Middle East.”
The answer is simple. Palestinians badly need U.S. money. They know the U.S. will never endorse all of their demands or cut off its ties with Israel.Â Yet they will continue to ask for U.S. money, largely because their Arab brothers have turned their backs on them and are refusing to help. Â Â The U.S., of course, will continue to shower hundreds of millions of dollars on the Palestinian Authority.Â In return, Palestinians will continue to harbor hatred for the U.S.
