Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
LOL... you cons are a hoot sometimes. How did that meeting go that the shrub had with Israel??
I'm just a little unclear what it is that you cons are ranting about? Apparently YOU felt that Obama would solve the worlds problems and since it didn't happen in his first 100 days you call him a child on the international stage? Is that a tantrum I sense?
So Obama met with the Israeli Prime Minister and asked him to be sensible and do the right thing regarding the two-state solution, the Israeli Prime Minister says he's can't chew gum and think at the same time and he feels Iran is a bigger threat. The Palestinians are a real, daily threat to the lives of the Israeli people (and vise versa) while Iran is a possible threat years down the road. But we can't forget that the very rightwing Netanyahu needs to keep his people scared about a nuclear threat so he can press forward with his agenda... you know, the way the shrub admin used fear in America.
I dunno, looks to me like Netanyahu is the fool.
Israel is a loose cannon on the stage of international relations, and I support them 100%.
Obama has the right ideas, but Israel is apparently not ready for them just yet and would rather focus on Iran for now.
Anyway, I think it's pretty safe to say that peace in the ME will not happen under this US president's watch either. Not that I ever thought it would, either.
"Yes, but are you a Protestant atheist or a Catholic atheist?".- Northern Irish joke
You have got to be kidding.
Its pretty commmon knowledge with people who are paying attention that the link has been made.
I proved my point with official language/comments from high ranking members of this administration..you simply said nu uh and made a snide comment.
Debunking does not equate your clearly baseless opinion.
Netanyahu has to look out for his country's interests so he gets points. Obama should do the smart thing and tell the Israeli's and the Palestinians to figure out the whole issue themselves. As for Iran, the Israeli's have to do what they got to do and thats it. America needs to stop worrying about that hell hole that is the Middle East (after we finish Iraq), nothing we do is going to make it better. Let them fight, and go to war then God can sort them out.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
It wasn't a failure of diplomacy, it was a failure of timing. With two past administrations supporting Israel's flouting of international law with the expansion of its Jewish settlements, it's kind of late for Obama to prance in and make calls for a two-state settlement. Furthermore, Israel has been refocusing on Iran as of Bush's reign, and that's not about to change. Palestine is gradually becoming a non-issue for Israel. It will simply be dismantled by Israel's expansion.
Palestine is a cause for concern but everyone should be much more concerned about Israel setting its sights on Iran.
Again, learn to read comments beforehand, it might save you the embarrassment later.
You have yet to list the examples of how Obama embarrassed America by going to Israel.
It's quite easily seen however, how Obama haters such as yourself (I would even go so far as to say Un-American) would just like to spit bile at the president.
