Obama: US won’t be able to defend Israel if peace talks fail

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 stress that he would convey to Netanyahu, in the spirit of the Jewish sage Hillel the Elder, that the prime minister could lead Israel toward peace if he chose to do so.

“If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?” Obama said.

I don't think that the U.S. can defend itself -right now, let alone Israel.  Obama is in no position to tell Netanyahu how the U.S. won't be defending them if they don't bow down to the Palestinians.  This is the same ignorant "Muslim brotherhood" loving President that wanted Israel to go back to pre-1969 borders, so they wouldn't be able to even defend themselves.  Obama is ignorant on the world stage, and being made a fool of all over the place... 

Blane, I agree down to obama Is "ignorant."  The posterior port knows what he's doing and that is to destroy America's ability to do "jack s."  It is all part of his plan to make America in the image of Kenya and further the muslim religion which is an enemy of everything else.

Bryan,

I digress on "ignorant"....you are correct, he wants to further the muslim religion....as he has proven over and over again.  I suppose what I really meant is the rest of this Nation is allowing it to continue.

Thanks!

Blane.. I'd like to add.....To paraphrase Pres. Nixon's words, " Pres. Obama and the Congress of cowards, CANNOT DEFEAT OR HUMILIATE THE UNITED STATES, ONLY AMERICANS CAN DO THAT !"   Stand up America because YOUR silence is permission to continue their agenda of America's destruction !!!

Very true Eileen.

There is another angle to Obama. His love of Communism. I believe he thinks that Communism could be the way to force conversion on all Americans, no matter their religion. And we must always remember that he wants the USA to suffer for the sins of our ancestors. This is why his push for redistribution is so important.

History is going to have one hell of a time explaining all this in context and writing the actions properly, that will be taken by Patriots to stop all this madness.

For God and Country!

 

Nope. He is not ignorant. He is trying to destroy Israel along with the US
Israel and the United States refuse islam

obumber needs to leave Israel alone and mind his own business. They have God on their  side.

Is the US Gog or Magog?

Patsy, The USA is an extension of Israel... so the gog has already begun, it's the grand mufti ...magog involves The UN with magot (or little gog) putin in charge of the "armies".

I'm just curious as to which "God" is on their side?

Being that they Deny Jesus Christ, Deny Jesus is the Messiah, Deny Jesus is the Son of God, Deny Jesus is God, Deny Jesus is the Word of God, and Deny the New Testament.

So if Jesus is Denied, then which "God" is on their side?  It wouldn't be Jesus.

Are you a Christian?  That's something I could never understand -- Christians supporting people who Deny Christianity and Deny Jesus.  That doesn't add up.

If Jesus was the Messiah, but Jews deny that, and are still waiting on the Messiah to come, then when he DOES come, who is their Messiah going to be? 

Answer: Not Jesus.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
