Obama Goes Aggressive

President Obama contemplates his domestic policy for the State of Israel, which he thinks is his 51st state

President Obama contemplates his domestic policy for the State of Israel, which he thinks is his 51st state

This is President Barack Obama speaking (to J. Goldberg):-

“Do you perpetuate, over the course of a decade or two decades, more and more restrictive policies in terms of Palestinian movement? Do you place restrictions on Arab-Israelis in ways that run counter to Israel’s traditions?”…

…“If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction — and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time,” Obama said. “If Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguous sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited.”

…This is not a situation where you wait and the problem goes away. There are going to be more Palestinians, not fewer Palestinians, as time goes on. There are going to be more Arab-Israelis, not fewer Arab-Israelis, as time goes on…

…I have not yet heard, however, a persuasive vision of how Israel survives as a democracy and a Jewish state at peace with its neighbors in the absence of a peace deal with the Palestinians and a two-state solution. Nobody has presented me a credible scenario…

…I believe that Bibi is strong enough that if he decided this was the right thing to do for Israel, that he could do it. If he 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. And as I said before, it’s hard to come up with one that’s plausible…

Persuasive and palusible and credible options and solutions exist but Obama, stuck in his radical outlook frame cannot accept them because of how he views the Arabs. The figures he has been given are wrong.  His assumptions are incorrect.

But, as Dani Dayan pointed out, his references to internal Israel is disturbing (Dani termed it “outrageous”).

And his employment of the adjective “aggressive’ is outright inimical.

As for managing international fallout, Ukraine will permit Obama to exhibit whether Israel can really trust him and his policies and his reactions.

  7. He makes me sick. Such an insult to America

  8. Now that Russia took over Crimea, why the US doesn't take Iran, Cuba or Venezuela over?, this could be a change in US politics.

  10. Before Bibi sees the President and all of our Democrat friends, he must view this from May 2008. Notice how BO does not look anyone in the eye: Share also with those you know voted for him. http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=CPTfgziFlUU
