    Netanyahu stands firm against demands from Obama

    Netanyahu stands firm against demands from Obama

    Netanyahu stands firm against demands from Obama - Telegraph


    Israel stood firm against demands from Barack Obama on Monday to cease the construction of Jewish settlements and embrace the "two-state solution" to achieving peace in the Middle East.


    Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, in his first meeting with the US president, made it clear that while he welcomed Mr Obama's commitment to the region, he was more concerned about dealing with the threat of Iran than peace talks.

    Mr Obama was unable to secure any commitments on ceasing the construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank or embracing the "two-state solution" to achieving peace in the Middle East.


    How do you all rate Obama's meeting with netanyahu? Was it a success, and for whom?


    I think netanyahu is right about Iran. It should be the focus with Obama, before talks of settlements, and a two state solution can be discussed.

    Obama is such a little boy on the international stage. It would be best that we keep him home so as not to embarrass ourselves. I NEVER thought I would miss the Bush Years, but Jesus... Obama is sad. At this point, Obama just needs to focus on domestic problems. We elected two idiot children in a row. Good for us. Go Team America!

    ANYTHING Obama does, the right will complain. Big surprise there.

    I understand Iran is a bigger concern for Israel right now, however, if they can't handle more than two topics at a time it is THEM who are "little boys on the international playing field".

    All Israel is doing with the continuation of the settlements is just adding fuel to the already continuing fire between them and Palestine.

    And prey tell what did Obama do that is so embarrassing in Israel? Try to get Israel to recognize a two-state solution and halt building on the settlement? Oh yeah, that's embarrassing.

    Maybe he should have convinced Isreal to just slaughter every Palestinian, I'm sure that would have made many on the right happy and joyful with glee.

    Obama isn't embarrassing Israel. He is embarrassing America. And Israel ought to recognize a two-state solution, they just shouldn't be so stupid as to give up territory necessary to their own security. Simple distinctions are too complicated for Axelrod and Obama.

    Personally I think Obama has gotten kind of a big head from the absurd amount of praise that people gave him during his campaign run (and some still continue to give him). I think he really thought that he was going to go there and just solve everything in one fell swoop. Hopefully this meeting brought him down a few pegs so that he can realize it's going to take a lot more for peace to be achieved in the Middle East.

    Obviously it is not a success for President Obama. Whether it was a victory for Netanyahu remains to be seen.

    Iran and a two state solution are two separate issues, no?

    Obama screwed up his routine.
    He now has a year of his butt smooching "talks" with Iran.
    Wasn't his intent going by his language to set a timetable on talks with Iran..but that is how it is being taken.

    Not according to Obama and his staff.

    /sigh, please learn to read my comments.

    I never said he was embarrassing Israel, I asked what did he do that was so embarrassing IN Israel?

    Still waiting for examples instead of rhetoric. Given that Bush labeled countries right away as Axis of Evil, given that Darfur happened is examples of embarrasing America. But you long for those days. You long for the days when Bush attacked Iraq, a country that had LITTLE to do with the war on terror, given what was going around. But you long for those days.

    Bush was an EMBARRASSMENT internationally. Get real and get off your partisan high horse and back to reality.

    All you have proven is that ANYTHING Obama would do (even if you agreed with it) would be wrong because Obama did it.
