Obama’s Timetable

We'll be here, Mr. President, long after you have turned to dust, your memory not even a breeze in the wind.
TIMETABLE PIC

Just before his visit to Israel, apparently the Obama administration has leaked information that Obama is coming here not for a photo opportunity, but to seriously move the defunct peace talks forward. He wants, among other things, a timetable describing when Israel plans to withdraw from Yehuda and Shomron (Judea and Samaria or the “West Bank”).

Mr. President, according to my math and some websites, Abraham was born 1,948 years after creation (yes, Israel was re-established in 1948 and doesn’t that bring a smile to your face?). When he was 55 years old, Abraham was commanded to go to Canaan, modern day (and ancient) Israel. So, the first Jew to enter Israel was 2,003 years after creation…or…to put it in more familiar terms, 1758 BCE. So that makes our presence here in the land of Israel…oh, about 3,771 years, give or take a few (very few) when the Jews left for famine or whatever, and certainly, there have been Jews here continuously, for 2,000 years plus.

That is longer than any other nation alive today, certainly longer than any Arab/Palestinian/Muslim – or even Christian claim to this land. It is documented, substantiated, proven. It is in the ground, buried deep and rediscovered regularly by anyone who digs deep enough to find the history waiting to be uncovered.

But that isn’t what you asked, was it? You asked about when we’d be leaving. I did some calculations, using common sense, the current political situation, my own knowledge and research, and figured out that we’ll be pulling out of Yehuda and Shomron, the West Bank, etc. – about one week before never; two days after the end of the world.

We’ll be here, Mr. President, long after you have turned to dust, your memory not even a breeze in the wind.

We’ll be here, Mr. Obama, until the end of time. This is what God has promised and this is what we promise ourselves, our children, our grandchildren and theirs.

You want a timetable for when we’ll withdraw – I’ve given it to you.

Now, let’s talk about that other timetable – the one for peace in the Middle East. It will happen, Sir, when the Palestinians want it, and not before. When they learn to stop dancing in the streets when they succeed in murdering children and exploding buses. Peace will come when they have no desire to fire rockets at us and no interest in demanding one thousand Arabs at a value of the life of one Jew.

In other words, Mr. Obama – not in your lifetime, sorry.

So, really, if that’s why you are coming to Israel – perhaps you can save the gas, save the time. Unless, of course, you are bringing Jonathan Pollard home which is, as our Prime Minister said recently, long past due.

Assuming you still plan on coming, if I were you, I’d go back to Plan B and begin working on what pictures you want.
