    The actual building in East Jerusalem is not something new, and is something that has existed 46 years before the current administration has even been formed.

    True, I remember a couple of weeks ago hearing some American saying this had been going on for all those years and they had apparently been unaware of it.

    Never mind this

    Israel agrees to freeze settlement construction as gesture to US - Israel News, Ynetnews
    The article you're referring to is about the Israeli decision to show a true willingness towards peace and freeze its west bank settlements.
    Jerusalem is not considered to be a west bank settlement in Israeli eyes, and when he has announced it, Benjamin Netanyahu has clearly stated that Jerusalem is not included in his plan.
    The American reaction at that time, was a small disappointment that Jerusalem is not included and yet a great applause for the act.
    Clearly that applause didn't last long.

    And by the way, the Golan Heights are also not recognized as Israeli land by the international community, just as East Jerusalem, and yet building in Golan Heights is not being criticized.
    All of this technically and obviously results in the conclusion that the new opposition to Israeli building in East Jerusalem is an agenda-sourced one, one that has originated in the halls of the White House, I'm afraid.

    I accept I was only half listening and wasn't sure the area the American woman was speaking of.

    However from the link I gave

    According to the Shas minister, continued construction in Jerusalem and the settlement blocs that will remain in Israel's possession in a peace deal will be made possible only in the framework of a US-backed permanent agreement.

    Now have you gone against that, or not.

    If that has to do with the missile defense program, why should the American tax payer being paying for a military structure in Europe. The Europeans should start to learn how to defend themselves. Im sick and tired of defending socialists.

    Well what do you know.

    You people are laughable. Keep up the BS.
    Really aps, you're going to complain about the credibility of the source and to counter it you post what is essentially a COMMENTARY blog by a man whose entire purpose at that news organization is to do puff pieces (Did you know Obama and Michelle were voted Cutest Couple by Nickelodian! OMGZ!) on Michelle Obama detailing her "Living History".

    This is like saying a worldnetdaily story is bogus cause media matters said so.

    The original story was dubious no doubt, however I highly doubt this individual who pretty clearly is a staunch Obama supporter is going to give a fair view either. Its likely somewhere in the middle.

    More to the question I'd have is what reaction would we be seeing if this was back with the old French head of state, if the French media reported it how the Israeli media did, and it was Bush in office. Would we be hearing how its overblown or would we be hearing how he's a horrible diplomat whose an idiot and an embarassment to our country.

    I agree but hey, if US is spending its taxpayers money on protecting Israel. May as well add Europe in that list as well.

    After all, US does more business with Europe than it does Israel.

    They already sent their airforce. Three out of four direct hits as I recall.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The story is confirmed and shows Obama to be true to his Muslim roots. After all he was born a Muslim and with Communist parents, friends etc. we should expect nothing better from the Amateur in Chief.

    He is willing to kiss but all over the middle east and bow to dictators and talk with our sworn enemies but not our best friends in the Middle east.

    Obama is as anti-Israel and he has shown he in anti-American.

    He will go down in History as not only the worst Person to ever hold the office but as a traitor to the values our Nation was founded on.

    Obama is clearly actively working to destroy the Constitution and is actively trying to erode the relationships with the UK and Israel our finest allies.

    He is showing himself to be a pretty uppity Muslim, without good reason because he such and idiot.

    Because Poland is an ally who is one of the few countries who actually send troops to actually fight and they have housed terrorists as well.

    Plus is keeps an eye on Russia.

    All damn good reasons.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
