In what has been characterized as a “bombshell,” President Obama sided with Palestinians against Israel during his Mideast speech when he revealed his support of the Palestinians’ demands that Israel pull back to their borders based on how they were before the 1967 Middle East war. Obama said, “We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps…The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves and reach their full potential in a sovereign and contiguous state.”

:rolleyes:

THEY HAVE A SOVEREIGN AND CONTIGUOUS STATE! It's call Jordan. :rolleyes:

Wow. Granted, he's not as ballsy as GHW Bush was but it is strange to see an American president actually show some backbone when it comes to Israel.

Chances are, it is just rhetoric.

It is very difficult politically to stand up to Israel in the United States. That is why I am leaning toward this being just rhetoric. It's not even that harsh if you look at it. The so-called Two State solution has been around since before Obama came on the scene and he had all kinds of weasel words in his statement so ..... not really that harsh at all.

Which pretty much goes to show you have much of an Israeli bitch the United States has become if something as mild as what he said has people running in circles pulling their hair out.

Since the term Palestinian isn't even 100 years old, it seems more reasonable to return the borders to where they were in 926 BC (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Map_Israel_Judea_926_BC-pl.svg) the region was commonly know as Judea (from the Hebrew: יהודה, Standard Yəhuda Tiberian Yəhûḏāh "Tribe of Judah", Greek: Ιουδαία, Ioudaía; Latin: Iudaea).

For the sake of historical accuracy the "Palestinians" (who started using that word in 1920 because it sounded neat) should get or retain the region of Philistia that is truly where the philistines set up came in the days of yore.

It's time for this canard of Palestine to go the way of the dodo. A sand pirate can call themselves Jedi Knights, but they will still be sand pirates.

Stand up to Israel? We need to stop standing in their way.

Netanyahu waste no time. shove it up you ass Obama


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu swiftly rejected President Obama's call Thursday for Israel to pull back to the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War, calling those lines militarily "indefensible."

I am, oddly enough, MORE terrified of them because they can dance. In formation. While on Patrol. And Armed. And aren't afraid to hold hands and skip off camera.

The whole "Palestinian" myth mystifies me. It is sort of like if Norway laid claim to Canada because the Vikings settled Newfoundland back when being Scandinavian wasn't synonymous with being a tree-hugging pussy. Yet everyone says, hell, if a bunch of dune baboons who have been run out of every sandbox in the Middle Eastern playground say, "Hey, see that temple foundation built by the Hebrews that the Muhammadan zombies built a mosque on in a city built by the Hebrews that have been there almost as long as sex has been popular? That's ours." And a good chunk of humanity says, "Oh, ok."

I mean WTF?

So we should just give back America to the American Indians right?

The truth is, that is not even analogous to the demands of the "Palestinians". My Viking/Canada one is much closer. I mean should Spain give up the southern half of their country next? Please.

Obama sends back to the Brits the Winston Churchill bust that was given to the US after 9-11, gives his crappy speeches as a "gift" to the queen of England, throws numerous allies under the bus, then kicks Israel in the teeth. Who in God's name would want to be an ally of ours now? He only seems to like the bomb throwers.

The Republicans had best field someone decent this time. Our country can't take 4 more years of O.
