    That we're keeping them safely in Guantanamo isn't the issue.

    That's where people like that belong, when they're not in their rightful place at the bottom of a former hole six feet deep.

    White House Calls Netanyahu Speech 'Important Step Forward' in Peace Process - Political News - FOXNews.com
    "The president welcomes the important step forward in Prime Minister Netanyahu's speech," White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said in a written statement. "The president is committed to two states, a Jewish state of Israel and an independent Palestine, in the historic homeland of both peoples. He believes this solution can and must ensure both Israel's security and the fulfillment of the Palestinians' legitimate aspirations for a viable state, and he welcomes Prime Minister Netanyahu's endorsement of that goal."

    Also on Monday, former US president Jimmy Carter, visiting in Israel, said that Binyamin Netanyahu has placed "several obstacles on the road to peace", in response to the prime minister's speech Sunday evening.
    Hamas slams Netanyahu's 'racist, extremist' ideology - Israel News, Ynetnews
    Hamas slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's address on the Middle East conflict on Sunday, saying it reflected a "racist and extremist ideology."
    "This speech reflects the racist and extremist ideology of Netanyahu and denies all the rights of the Palestinian people," Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum told AFP. "This speech is the reiteration of the policy of his government, which aims at transforming the Palestinian people into a tool to protect the occupation." (AFP)
    Palestinians angered by Netanyahu peace terms - Yahoo! News
    Palestinian disappointment was echoed in capitals across the Arab world, where leaders accused Netanyahu of setting more obstacles in the path of an already stymied peace process.
    Seems like Dear Leader's spin on Netanyahu's speech is at odds with the Palestinians take on it.

    Netanyahu's speech is a slight shift, but it hardly impressed the other side. Calling it an "important step forward" is simply nonsensical. The so-called peace process remains as intractable as it has ever been.

    Nice new avatar by the way. Who is it?
    I don't think so somehow. It seems from my view, there is a slow deterioration of ties between US and UK imho.
    Brown seems still bitter about the humilation he faced he got slated in the press

    Yes it is.
    Then US has not really taken them in.

    Good enough to dump them in other countries but must keep the ones no one will take locked up in Cuba.

    I stand corrected on Obama's comments. However, it is a shift, and you can argue it is important since peace is impossible without both sides shifting.

    So Great Britain should just "get over it"?

    A rather arrogant and presumptuous pose you have there.

    Its like Britain dumping and letting loose terrorists on American soil without even telling the people who protect the land about it.

    The citizens do not seem very happy with their new "neighbours"

    'This is a very small country ... and some are saying if the whole world doesn't want these folks, why are we taking them?' Nariang said. The government has 'fumbled the ball on this one.'"
    British government officials are "pissed," according to a senior State Department official, saying they were not adequately consulted.
    Does anyone not think Britain, the country which is in charge of defense in Bermuda had a right to know what will be coming under its protection?

    It goes both ways. I don't think we should sweat petty crap Britain does that might anger us either.
