Buried in his blithering, blathering, self-congratulatory, hectoring speech on the Middle East today, Barack Hussein Obama dropped this diplomatic nuclear bomb:
So while the core issues of the conflict must be negotiated, the basis of those negotiations is clear: a viable Palestine, and a secure Israel. The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine. The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.
COME AGAIN?!?!?!?!? WHAT?!?!?!?!?!
In other words, Obama is now ready to advocate the next step of his plan to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth.
This is absolutely outrageous. There is no way that Israel can be secure, geographically, with the 1967 borders. He knows that. Israel knows that. The world knows that. He may as well have just declared a proxy war against Israel, and he clearly is trying to destabilize Netanyahu’s government. Instead, as usual, Obama may have overreached. My prediction is that Israel will rally behind Netanyahu in denouncing this suggestion in no uncertain terms.
As well they should.
What’s next from Obama? Asking Taiwan to cede half of the island of Formosa to the Communist Chinese? Unilaterally ceding not just the prison camp but also the Naval base at Guantanamo to Castro?
Obama is a menace.
