I am sitting here, stunned and in disbelief. Did––for the first time in the history of this country––the sitting President of the United States of America actually, and purposefully say what I just heard him say? Talk about spitting in the face of Israel's Bibi Netanyahu one day before he was slated to visit this country and address both Houses of Congress.
It is totally unbelievable, but true. President Barack Obama delivered his long-awaited "Arab Spring" speech today and the most significant take-away from his 45-minute delivery was the following:
"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".
Go back to the 1967 BORDERS??? For real??? What was our president thinking when he uttered those fighting words? Does he not know that American Christians, and Jews across the globe will never stand for this to happen? Is he trying to usher in WW3? Is Netanyahu going to allow himself, and Israel, to be "one-upped", "neutered", and smacked-down by Obama AGAIN (remember, he was dissed by the president before during a different visit to the White House).
Well... the eyes of the world now hone in on Netanyahu. If he lets this statement reverberate another day in the news and throughout the global blogsville... he may as well go back to Israel and begin packing his political moving boxes, baby!
This is UNBELIEVABLE!!!!
