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.

This all part of the plan to destroy this country.  What a shame this administration is...however, I believe that they will fail in the end...my faith tells me so.  The bible says that Jews and Christians are the same and are one with God. There is no separation at all.  So anyone or anything that is unnatural in this universe and opposes Christ will not succeed.  This administration's feeble attempt to control the world will always be met with opposition and therefore they will be thrown into chaos that will have no end until they repent and turn away from their sinful ways.  God is and will always be the reigning Lord on this planet and only he can create a peace that man cannot achieve.  Unfortunately we may have to suffer through some tough times until we can elect God fearing men and women in office in this country again. 

Israel can take care of itself, and does not need anything from us to deal with her Arab enemies!

We the people must Act before the point of no return... We are now approaching the stage of Destabilization, see Yuri Bezmenov episode 8.

BACK OFF BARACK! BACK OFF! ISRAEL DOES NOT EXPECT ANYTHING FROM YOU ANYWAY.

Am I the only one in the USA that can read and understand Genesis 12: 3  ??   God specifically told Israel NEVER to sell, trade, or give away one inch of their "God given Land,"  ever !   What is so hard to understand here??  This command is still in force and legally binding.   Why can't neighboring countries give up a LITTLE of their land to their Islamic brethren, the Palestinians, if they are so crowded for space?  Israel has already illegally given up some of their land already, in the Golan heights, etc., and nothing good came from it.   It's like Obama-care...   it's NOT about health care at all, but it's all about CONTROL !!   Yes!  There will be a soon coming war between Israel and some of her neighbors, and the Bible tells us who will win...  Israel.   So that all the nations will know exactly HOW Israel wins,  she must be all alone, looking totally defenseless, and God will 'give them the victory !!'   So it is written...  Besides,  America's Army and Navy are pretty much destroyed by Obama already.   What a pity. 

AMERICA'S VERY LOVABLE MARXIST MUSLIM "COMMUNIST" GESTAPO "PUSSY" SHOULDN'T WORRY HIS LITTLE ZEBRA HEAD ABOUT ISRAEL!                                                                                              WHEN THE CHIPS ARE DOWN ISRAEL WILL SETTLE ALL PAST DUE ACCOUNTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST CRISES, BEGINNING WITH IRAN, THEN TAKING ON ANY OTHER RAG HEAD NATIONS WHO WANT TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE!                                                                                                               BUT THE MUSLIMS ARE SO BUSY FIGHTING WITH THEIR SELVES THAT I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THAT THEY WILL WANT WAR WITH ISRAEL WHEN THEY SEE THE "BACK TO THE STONE AGE" RESULTS IN IRAN AFTER ISRAEL FINISHES WITH THEM!                                                                                  THE DAY IS SWIFTLY COMING WHEN THE US MILITARY WILL REFUSE TO FIGHT IN ANY FOREIGN NATION UNTIL AMERICA'S MARXIST MUSLIM "COMMUNIST" DICTATOR IS IMPEACHED!                    I COULD BE WRONG BUT SO FAR I HAVEN'T SEEN A HAMMOR & SYCKLE OR A FLAG IF ISLAM PATCH ON ANY OF OUR MILITARY!

This is so totally unacceptable!!! We are the only real ally Israel has. God will not forgive the United States there will be a heavy price to pay if we do not defend Israel. While most of them do not believe in Jesus as the Messiah, God still has them as His chosen people and Jesus will come a second time to reclaim them.

As for the US we need to take back over our government and we need to do it right now. We are very closely to collapsing with no way to recover. We thought we had it bad in Pearl Harbor, but that is nothing we were oceans apart. Now with Nuc's we are but a rocket launcher away.

We the American people better wake up soon or it will be over for good. This is not doom and gloom, this is the truth!!!

Obama cannot protect the US.  Dope makes you loose a lot of weight fatso.  The cigarettes will give you lung cancer-too late to quit.  Pack up and get out of our White House and our country.  Go home now.

That land is their's and should never have been given to the Palestinians. That is what this president is all about, he is not an American and he will find out very quickly what the Americans are made off. The Bible says that the state of Israel will never be defeated as they are his chosen people. I know that the Israel people can and will defend their country.

Of course, obummer will have our military so weak, it can't even retake the whitehouse!

The former USA of which this POTUS never lead or intended to lead. is a thing of the past.  The village idiots who cast him as the dark shadow are now totally in the dark as to what to do with their brand of apartheid for this former country.  They do not have a seeing eyed dog because they are Obummified.

We are doomed!!!!! With all the proposed cut backs in defense, we won't be able to swat a fly!!!!

ALERT ALERT

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
