    Two snubs in such a short time is not something many US Presidents would put up with.
    Then he would have heard wrong. Everything I have heard from credible sources is that no one actually lived in this area where the new building was approved and that the land was legally purchased more than twenty years ago.

    Ok, I live in the UK. That is what our news said. It is obvious that a lot of people here have no interest in peace, but Obama is trying for that and the actions which Israel is taking given that the Palestinians want East Jerusalem for their capital is as Justbubba said, eating the pizza which you are supposed to be discussing dividing.

    Here is what Israel said on it in August 09

    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.
    Israel agrees to freeze settlement construction as gesture to US - Israel News, Ynetnews

    Clearly Israel has changed it's mind and just in time for visits from/with the Vice President and President.

    I was listening to BBC news on the radio yesterday while driving to work, and they talked about it at length.

    Israel does not consider East Jerusalem "Occupied Territory" and stated at the time that neither East Jerusalem nor Golan Heights were subject to the moratorium on new settlement construction.

    So what about the West Bank? That's where the freeze was 'supposed' to be... right?

    I guess not...

    (and if it takes you awhile, Beitar Illit is in the West Bank)

    Hard to make a judgement considering the utter lack of details in the article.

    I let it go the first time but now I have to call you on it.

    Democratic republic. That is the Polish government. This isn't the 80s.

    In any case however Then maybe the Polish should buy the system from us. Its not the job of the American people to defend the scum filled socialist hell hole that is Europe.
    You are painting WAY too big of a brush. Yes most countries in Europe are socialist but Poland is NOT one of them. There is a big difference between Eastern and Western Europe.


    You also ignored my point that they have been a staunch ally of ours.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Why am I not surprised to learn that Barack Obama is snubbing Netanyahu? Like all Muslims and Islamic sympathizers, they don't like Israel.

    Thank you. Our nation has sacrificed more persons to protect others nations. Euro hates us, Israel uses us. We have our own crap to fix at home.

    If Israel has any interests in peace then she would need to understand concessions are needed. She may say it is not occupied but the UN does not.

    I notice you are Christian and extreme. Someone gave me a link to a Christian party once which fully supported Israel but only because they were going to get something out of this. They also had some murkey anti Jew stuff going on.

    Hope we don't have another religious act wanting their oar in.
