Determined to Get Kerry a Nobel, Obama Planning to Squeeze Netanyahu

President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu meeting in the Oval Office, September 30, 2013. Now they'll do it again, and Obama will lean on Netanyahu to push a framework that neither side believes in.

The PLO Golda Meir, Hanan Ashrawi, rightfully expressed her reservations regarding the whole “framework” idea: “Why have it?” she asked. “Is it just to maintain a semblance of progress? Is it meant to buy more time? Or is it not to admit we have failed?”

She usually makes my skin crawl—but she’s absolutely on the money here. The peace talks were doomed to failure from day one, at this point the aim is to put better makeup on the corpse in time for the viewing.

    Just give him a Nobel Prize for being a real jerk and then leave Israel along. I think he is a most obnoxious person anyway.

  2. It's worse than that. If only to get Kerry a Nobel prize, Obama could easily just drop it. BUT the reason is, that Obama needs to succeed. In SOMETHING. ANYTHING. He chose Israel is the victim of his need to succeed. Why? I don't know, but it could be that he thinks that it will look very good in History, or it could be that he thinks that Israel is so dependent on the US that he can push Israel easily, or perhaps because of his upbringing, or the church he attended, or because he has so many Jewish anti-Israel advisers – I don't know.

  3. Bill Scott says:

    In the meantime, Obama's policies toward Israel have reaped some fearsome weather in our country. And he wants more?

  4. Continue pray for PM Netanyahu. He should not allow to be cheated again. Wisdom and knowledge from Jehovah should lead him.

  5. Antony Raj says:

    The more they Squeeze Israel, the US should be prepared that they too will be Squeezed by Yahweh God in like manner.

  6. Mary Hale says:

    Go ahead USA..push Israel too far and you will reap what you sow..

  7. Mary Hale says:

    Send Kerry packing..he's a snake in the grass..
