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.

Brad , I have always supported Israel for the simple fact that they are basically our only ally in the middle east . I believe most prophetic scripture has been fulfilled and history just has a way of repeating itself . I have the same belief when it comes to anti-Christs ,they have always been and always will be . After the topic came up in class one day(I approached the teacher) about the fact the Jesus(who is and always has been God) said He did not know when He would return and only the Father knew, well since He is God and does not know does that not mean that the day has not yet been decided ! Simply because God is long suffering and does not want any to perish . But back to the topic ....my defense of Israel is not a religious or scriptural thing ...only a political thing , as it would be for any of our true allies !
Why do you accuse me of being this or that? I certainly didn't join this website to be called names, or stereotyped. Note too, that I'm not running around on here, targeting any user, then giving them derogatory labels. Also, just to let you know, I video record and screen capture everything on here, which is saved to multiple backups, so I can post anything I've written, or anything you, or anyone else, including administration has written to me up on Youtube, or any other Website if so need be.
Also, what is this about "The Pits of Hell?" Biblically speak, there is no "Hell," as that term only exists in few English translations of the Bible. There is a place called, "Hades" mentioned in the original Koine Greek texts, but not, "Hell." The term "Hell" is derived from the ancient Norse/Germanic Religion. Here, education yourself:
Thus, there are 2 Hells. One, is a place, the other is a female, the daughter of Loki. The very "Hell" you speak of, is actually a term stolen from the Norse/Germanic religions. Just as the days of the week, for example, Thursday, is actually "Thors - day," or Wednesday, is actually "Wodins - Day" (Odin).
How is saying that, "Jews Deny Jesus is the Messiah," equal to "Jew Hate" ? Please inform me.Or how is saying, "Jews Deny the New Testament," equal to "Jew Hate" ? Inform me on that too.
This isn't "hate" at all, but FACTS. Are you going to sit there and tell me that Jews accept Jesus Christ as their Savior, and that he is the Son of God, and embrace the New Testament? If they did, then they would be Christians, and not Jews, now wouldn't they? So how do FACTS=Hate? I'm curious.
The bottom line here is that Jews Deny Jesus Christ -- and Jesus Christ is the central figure, savior, and Son of God/God of Christianity. Thus, Christianity and Judaism are at 180 degrees opposition to one another.
Stop spewing your HATRED OF TRUTH, or I will file a complaint with Admin. You do not have a place here for that kind of hate. You do not follow topic. You just spew hate of truth. Stop it or I will follow through on my promise to you.
Yes, all of this is recorded now, saved, backed up, etc, for further reference, to be put up online, or on Youtube etc. Thank you, and God Bless you, Mrs. Doyle.
The Israelite nation broke the covenant they had with God !
With all the enemies our western culture has, your apparent hate of Jews is ridiculous. You sound so much like Islamists with your disdain of Jews. I was christened a Catholic and all my life had been fortunate to have many Jews as my friends. I was thought in catechism that Jesus was the son of God. In church I make the sign of the cross and say "in the name of the father, son, and the Holy Ghost Amen". I bet that offends you also. Get over your bigotry of our friends. We have enough enemies and do not need to antagonize people who are our only friends in the Middle East.
Interesting how you are so full of accusations. You are quick to call another human all sorts of labels. Saying they "hate jews," are "ridiculous," or "you sound like an Islamist," or "you're a bigot."
Now the question is, should I be like YOU and call you names, or label you with all types of assertions?
You, Sir "Vladimir Val Cymbal," don't know me, or who I am, so please stop with your accusations.
Prove to me how saying, "Jews Deny Jesus Christ & the New Testament" = Jew Hate, or Bigotry, or makes someone an Islamist.
You can't. As those are facts.
They are facts that make you angry, because it brings this to the attention of Christians, making them stop and think, "Why would I place a nation or people who DENY MY SAVIOR/GOD, before my own needs, my own nation, and my own children."
That sir, Mr. Cymbal, is what you are afraid of.
Last time I checked, according to Christianity, Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, the Word of God, and God. All of which Jews deny. Thus Judaism and Christianity are diametrically opposed.
Let's see how this piece, produced by Seinfeld & Larry King, portrays Jesus.
That's what they think about Christian Citizens of the United States of America.
Quit being Anti-Caucasian.
I believe that the Jews will always be God's Chosen people, but that does not mean they will all be saved. On the contrary, only those Jews who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior will find salvation in His Name and His blood sacrifice, and that would be the Messianic Jews!
Amen brother !
ALL who love God their creator are already saved.
Right Garry! You are absolutely right! Israel does have GOD on their side!
They are GOD'S chosen People! HE will not let anything happen to his people!
At one time we had GOD on our side! We need to change our ways and pray
every day for him to help us against the America Haters and help us get our
country back! The HNIC could not even run a popcorn stand!
Gary you sure have started a storm here, and it is good...
To deny is to say no to an offer, the question is how forceful is the offer?! Jews have never attempted to harm Christians, especially en-masse –never! yet so called "christian born sinners" have been at Judea's throat ever since rome fell and around the year 666, their year of "victory", yeap, rome is not dead it just got “better”… “christian” born sinners and islime have the same god, their only difference is which way is up... and there are two of them just under your post.
Through Israel came Jesus, a son of God, anybody who speaks less than good of Jews and/or Israel, rejects God… but still, does God force His will? Obviously no, if He did there would be lots of arcs on all the rainbows… He simply leads the horse to the water, born sinners make the horse drink.
I'll give you chance to correct your statement that says... 'Through Israel came Jesus, A SON OF God'... Where in the scriptures can you find such a statement? There is only one God and He is three Father, Son, Holy Spirit! Thus that is why we read that God said, 'Let us make man in OUR image after OUR likeness'! See Gen. 1. Do you know the meaning of Emanuel?
Good point ! And Jesus could trace His linage from His Mother Mary all the way back to Adam @ Luke, Chapter 3, Verses 23.....and at verse 38b, it says, "--which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God." So if ANYONE calls Noah or Adam a fairy tale, or just a creative story, I believe that they are sinning against the Holy Spirit, and there for liable, big time !
