Abbas and Kerry in Cahoots to Throw the Peace Talks Bomb at Israel

The thundering silence from the White House after Abbas’ exit was the calm before the coming storm.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry called Mahmoud Abbas Monday, just by coincidence when the Palestinian Authority chairman was sitting down for a chat with U.S. Middle East Peace Envoy Martin Indyk in Amman.

The PA’s official WAFA news agency reported that Abbas’ negotiator Saeb Erekat and his spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeineh also were at the meeting.

The same day, an official of the Palestinian Authority who spoke on the basis of anonymity, told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency that Abbas will extend the talks if Israel simply will make a couple of peace-loving gestures. All Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has to do is see his government collapse by prohibiting Jews from building in Judea and Samaria and freeing Arab terrorists, including those with Israeli citizenship.

The conditions were widely expected but the timing of the statement with Kerry’s phone call is impeccable.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been playing along with this diplomatic farce with both hands tied behind his back and his ankles chained to the diplomatic time bomb that will explode in Israel’s face  – not because the talks will fail but because they started in the first place.

The script was written with the recent visits of Netanyahu and Abbas at the White House, where President Obama welcomed them into his Machiavellian den.

Before Netanyahu’s plane touched down, Obama already was on the attack, using as his mouthpiece Jeffrey Goldberg, a journalist he can count on to toe the party line.

If Netanyahu “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,” the president said. “It’s hard to come up with one that’s plausible….

“Do you resign yourself to what amounts to a permanent occupation of the West Bank? Is that the character of Israel as a state for a long period of time? 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?”

We’ll leave it to the reader to figure out President Obama’s understanding of “Israel’s traditions.” Maybe he has a secret Zionist past when he went to school in Indonesia.

Other comments from the U.S. president who has an “unbreakable” bond with Israel,” included, “We have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time.” True. All it takes is a building freeze to fix that problem.”

Obama and Netanyahu then held their usual photo-op conversation before their talks and a high-profile conclusion.

But when Abbas visited, there was a short prelude and then, “Lights out. No sound. No action.”

Zilch.

Obama was totally non-committal, with no demands from Abbas, after having previously repeating time after time the lie that Abbas has stopped incitement and is against terror, simply because he says so. His war against terror consists of the IDF arresting and killing terrorists under Ramallah’s nose.

All the president had to say to the press was, “It’s very hard; it’s very challenging. We’re gonna have to take some tough political decisions and risks if we’re able to move it forward.”

Who is “we,” Kemosabe?

We is Israel.

Obama made no comment on Abbas’ recognizing as a Jewish state. He made no comment on Abbas’ silence on dropping the demand to import a few million Arabs into Israel to guarantee the end of a Jewish state of Israel, and Obama did not say they he told Abbas that if a deal is reached, it is final. No ifs, ands or buts. No “it’s a deal if…”

  1. Richard Fox says:

    paranoia strikes deep……

  2. Do not trust Obama! !!!

  3. Romeo Singh says:

    BLESS YOU FOR BEING BLESSING…

  4. Joy, another ignorant sheeple.o

  5. Do not listen not trust Obama or Kerry. Do what is best for Israel

  6. Alan Kardon says:

    No recognition of Israel to exist, no deal. We have given enough to only receive nothing in return.

  7. At this point, the one state solution seems the best choice – one state – for Israelis and Jews of all stripe. The Arab countries have 100 times the lands mass that Israel occupies, and there are some 2 dozen Arab/Muslim countries in the same geographic area – why will they not allow the Palesitinans to create a new state out of lands donated by these 2 dozen states? As for their desire to have East Jerusalem as their capital – they can create whatever capital they want in their new home and call it New Jerusalem..

  8. HEY OBAMA, LOOK AT THIS: They say the Feds are spying on us here. I hope obama reads this:
    obama deserves No respect. The legality of his presidency is too much in doubt.
    The legality of his actions is too much in doubt.
    Where his loyalty lies is too much in doubt.
    obama’s name should always use the lower case “o”.

  9. Abbas never intended to make a deal. It has all been a ploy, a pretend game to get whatever he could out of Israel while giving nothing. The "peace" was never going to happen. Netanyahu should have someone call Obama and say to cancel the rest of the talks because he has "gone fishing." (That is an old Southern idiom, a way to tell someone, "Get lost, I'm tired of the games, got better things to do."

  10. "In Cahoots"? did your uncle Al from the shoe store write the lead for you?

  11. Joni Abrams says:

    I don't understand why Israel;s PM would let any terrorists free, There will never be peace until the return of our Messiah.
    All I can say is "when someone stabs you in the back you don't give him another knife to do it again".

  12. ISRAELI’S LAUGH LAST. OUR GOD RULES.

  13. One State. Jewish State.

  14. Don’t turn your back on obama, kerry or hagel…………………

  15. Ben II says:

    what “peace talks”? The PA is a terrorist org. that brings nothing to the table.

  16. Could it be Obama is ushering in the false peace like the anti-christ?

  17. We are not children afraid from storms, the real storm is making peace with Palestinians in their terms. I believe Obama need to answer many thins before, like Ukraine or what I read in Belgian newspaper De Morgen. It has published pictures of US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama depicted as apes, days ahead of Obama’s expected visit to the country this coming week.

  18. Dean Petree says:

    Don’t trust any of them.

  19. Why do supposedly intelligent [whatever that used to be, it seems to be no more] people keep up such a farce? If Obama wants to destroy Israel, why not just attack? Or maybe he has and we haven't heard all the details…Do many people remember B.Hussein Obama's promise on an open microphone, that after the elections he will have more "flexibility"??? This appears to be the beginnings of the "flexings"…stand back and give Russia a pass to take over Crimea, then Ukraine, then Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania..Poland, what else?? Romania?? And Abu Obama can undermine Israel to his hearts content and thereby "cleanse" the middle east of infidels…then the move can be westward to Europe and the United States……What has to happen before people will see what's going on??? It's almost a play by play repeat of the 1930's with Hitler….

  20. Sientje Seinen says:

    charles Hoffman In cahoots, what is wrong with that word, doesnt it mean they are on the same page?
