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.


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 !

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.
