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.

Judy, I agree with every thing you wrote. But I think you missed the statement that was written... "A Son of God"! This is what the Jehovah's witness use and have placed in there on private version of scripture... namely John 1: . This chapter of John's gospel spells out that Jesus was not A Son but rather The Son of God, The creator of heaven and earth! The statement 'A Son of God' gives the impression that God has many Sons and that is only true in the sense that all who except Jesus Christ as savior are born again into the family of God and then can be called sons of God. Remember John 3:16... 'For God so loved the world that He gave His ONLY begotten Son that whosoever beleiveth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life'.

He is called Emanuel which means God with us. If we can say that he was just 'A Son of God' then that would give the idea that there are multiple  'ONLY Sons of God' which is not true. Please read chapter one of Johns gospel and Hebrews chapter one. Also John's first epistle warns of those who say that God 'Jesus' didn't come in the flesh who John calls anti-christs.

Judy, Your right, they don't believe He is the Messiah or the Son of God. Their text reads "a son of God". I have spoken to many JW's and they do not understand the trinity or... like you said, that the Holy Spirit is a person of the God head. My question was always... then how can someone 'Grieve' the Holy Spirit. If it is a power like electricity you cannot grieve a thing but you can a person. I tell them to go home and look up every mention of the Holy Spirit in their concordance and come back and talk to me. So far no takers!

if a Child dies We grieve, if a grandpa dies We say rest in peace... Jesus suffered a very premature and in the extreme horrible death, murder by the lib-shit-head and a tory hand... grief starts with an unfulfilled love and life, its horrible limits are bound only by mortality

Jesus represents the triumph of Love (The Son) through The First Moral Nation, One Nation Under God, Israel ...Jesus was a Messiah (hence a God) to Godly but weakened people, weakened by the disempowering, under-powering, demoralizing, life and love of life destructive effects of money …"under god" on money coins and affirms The Rejection of God, it is a written blasphemy on the artificial curse for God, same difference as a golden calf on Mount Sinai.

Barry, God creates, We copy...  my mom wasn't reading from the manual before she had me... thank God I was copied correctly.

lol, Oleg, Your right, God creates and we make copies... mine was done very poorly... won't go into details.

OBAMA ( A RADICAL MUSLIM, ANTI-JEW  AND ANTI-CHRISTIAN )  IS HOPING AND WAITING FOR THE DOWNFALL AND OVERTHROW OF ISRAEL BY HIS "FRIENDS-THE MUSLIMS !!!!!).....OBAMA IS TOILET BOWL SCUM !!!!!!

Please, that's an insult to toilet bowl scum !

The USA is on the verge of civil war because of obummer.

I agree 100%.

Only the scripturally ignorant and blasphemous are not knowledgeable about what is coming soon. When Jesus Christ comes again, he will violently destroy the evil, and I will see His vengeance on all who have opposed Him. Jesus is coming soon, and we as Christians will not be on the wrong side of His wrath. I will not live long enough to see it, but my children will live long enough to delight in His justice on those who have blasphemed His HOLY NAME! Praise GOD and AMEN!

Really ??????? Scripturally ignorant ? That is not nice ! There have been those who have been preaching the "end of days" since Christ ascended up into the heavens after giving the great commission ! Christ will return again , I do know and believe this but I do not think man will know when that day is coming . There have always been evil dictators forcing their self serving laws down onto the masses but it has always been somewhere else not here ! I believe the USA is one of the greatest nations to ever exist but we have walked away from God , it is time to pray for a deliverer to lead us out of this oppression !

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.

You don't get to interrupt me
