Obama may not defend Israel

Once again, President Obama is trying to flex his bully pulpit muscle with Israel instead of with the Palestinians. While he demands Israel works out a peace deal with the Palestinians, he is making no similar demand to the very people and organizations that threaten Israel's right to exist.

In an interview with Bloomberg, President Obama said time is running out for Israel to make peace with the people who have it in their charter to destroy Israel, the Palestinians, and Mr Obama's message to Netanyahu, who he is due to meet with on Monday, is, “If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?”

So, according to Barack Hussein Obama, who barely understands the real threats to Israel, it is up to them to make peace with the people who want to destroy them, but not the other way around. If that does not happen, President Obama said, "then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited."

Obama is a master at deception and is doing to Israel just as he did with the United States Congress in budget negotiations where his message was basically, "I'm willing to negotiate with Republicans and long as they agree to everything I want."

Israel can expect to face international isolation and possible sanctions from countries and companies across the world if Benjamin Netanyahu fails to endorse a framework agreement with the Palestinians, US President Barack Obama cautioned on Sunday ahead of a meeting with the Israeli prime minister.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Obama stressed that time was running out for Israel to achieve a peace deal, and added that he believed Netanyahu had the capacity to rally Israel’s citizens behind an agreement.

But if Netanyahu “does not believe that a peace deal with the Palestinians is the right thing to do for Israel, then he needs to articulate an alternative approach,” Obama said.

“There comes a point where you can’t manage this anymore, and then you start having to make very difficult choices,” he said. [...]

The president went on to condemn in no uncertain terms Israel’s settlement activities in the West Bank, and said that though his allegiance to the Jewish state was permanent, building settlements across the Green Line was counterproductive and would make it extremely difficult for the US to defend Israel from painful repercussions in the international community.

“If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction — and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time — if Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguous sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited,” Obama said.
