US President Barack Obama speaking on the phone aboard Air Force One.

Aides to President Barack Obama told media Friday the U.S. will “reassess” its relationship with Israel in the wake of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s re-election to an historic fourth term.

A White House official couched the nasty reality in more diplomatic language, saying the president had told the prime minister “we will need to re-assess our options following the prime minister’s new positions and comments regarding the two-state solution.”

An official statement distributed following the call said the president had emphasized the U.S. “longstanding commitment to a two-state solution” during his conversation with Israel’s prime minister.

Earlier in the day on Thursday, Netanyahu clarified his position on the issue, explaining his reasons for a statement during the campaign in which he told supporters he would not back the establishment of a Palestinian state during his fourth term. In that clarification Netanyahu talked about the present realities in the Middle East with which Israel has to contend. He also noted that he supports the same conditions for negotiating a sustainable peace that he had set forth in his speech at Bar Ilan University in 2009: a demilitarized Palestinian state led by a government willing to recognize the Jewish State of Israel.

But he pointed to changes on the ground that cannot be denied – or ignored – and that present a real threat.

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has united his government in Ramallah with that of Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization, which is allied with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah. All three are faithful proxies of Tehran. In addition, Gaza is now home to bases for a number of Salafi global jihad terrorist groups. Among them are the Army of Islam, Al Qaeda, and Daesh, also known as ISIS or the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Iran and its proxies are also literally parked on Israel’s borders, in Lebanon, Syria, the Syrian side of the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula. A new Palestinian state would be ripe for the picking as well, creating for Israel an existential threat that no leader could allow.

None of which has impressed Obama. At a briefing on Friday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters: “Now that our closest ally in the region – and one of the two parties who would be responsible for negotiating a two-state solution – has withdrawn from their commitments, to that ideal, it means that we need to rethink the kinds of policy decisions that we’re going to have to make going forward.”

Never mind the fact that the Palestinian Authority – the first of the two parties responsible for negotiating the two-state solution — withdrew from its commitments several years earlier.

Obama has entirely ignored the fact that the PA, via the PLO, unilaterally dropped out of the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords. He has also turned a blind eye as the PA abandoned its moral and legal obligations to negotiate a final status agreement with Israel, using the United Nations as an excuse to break that deal. The General Assembly of the United Nations participated, allowing itself to be so used by granting the entity non-member observer nation status, which opened the door for the PA to join hundreds of international treaties.

Some members of the American media are also using a double standard to judge Israel’s decisions on its national security and foreign policy.

CNN news anchor Wolf Blitzer interviewed Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz as part of Israel’s “Likud-led government” and baldly demanded to know: “Do you support what’s called a two-state solution, Israel living alongside, the new state of Palestine.”

  1. Mr. Obama has his hand free todo what he had in mind since the begining. He furled every body during his first mandate, but once reelected, he became free to start his plans to surrender USA to islam. If you don’t reach to see it, you are blind. Thats really bad luck!.

  2. Mr. President: Before you think you need to invoke political revenge which Democrats, by extension, you have never been entitled to in the first place; which is a hate-crime as an act of war and terrorism against me and our people and now Israel; I would advise to reassess the God of Israel. He watches over Israel day and night. He does not sleep. He will protect and defend Israel from all evil hatred against them. He will not protect those attack Israel. What you do to Israel – will be done to you. You will reap what you sow. While you are reassessing the costs of supporting Israel, you might want reassess their God. He is not a myth. He is not dead. He is not an unjust, tyrannical God. He is very much fair. He has given us all opportunity after opportunity that we squander daily to turn from our natural inclination to commit sin which is High Crime in His pure eyes. He is very much awake and watching ALL that we do. He knows the whole story. He doesn’t have to guess. He doesn’t have to employ spies. He does this all by Himself. And, He especially He watches Israel. I implore you: Do not take our nation down a road from which we will never return for it leads only to The Abyss by turning against Israel. And that’s no Haven to any of us. Do not betray Israel.

  4. And what will Obama do if he succeeds and Israel is finally destroyed by these Arab invaders? Say that this mistake will be upon him for the rest of his life or another hypocrotical comment as that? Can’t he really see that if Israelis voted for Netanyahu was because he is a real leader in these times of war that threaten Israel with oblivion? Hasn’t he ever heard Gazan and other Arabs leaders, stating that their aim is to destroy Israel, thus getting rid of the only truly democratic and advanced country of the M.E:?

  8. Remember how Pharaoh reacted to Moshe and Aharon? "Hashem,sorry, never heard of him." Look what happened to him and every other world leader who has come against Israel. Arrogance is their downfall every time…

  9. Oh my god…Why did any one vote for this piece of s!!!.He s acting like a frickin baby.Over some thing that was none of his business,to start with,no one told him to send his losers over there with our money ,To cause trouble.He s mad because he failed,,and his goonies failed ,Yes bringing out his true colors,GREEN and GREENER,Wish he would stop making a fool of him self 🙂

  10. Terri you need an argument without G-d being involved. FACTual argument wins, religious loses. As Jews we have zero right to exist to this sort of person so fighting his evil with words of faith do not work. You need to speak as if speaking to one devoid of all faith, as if you are speaking to an Atheist. Once you find the right words to teach the Atheist, words with no religion, then you can perhaps teach the pig. Not before.

  12. POS POS Muslime baster ! What a disgrace ! Well them F in Democrats got the hope An change all right ! WTF GUYS ! Not only but 2 times OMG! 1940 Never AGAIN ! The Jewish community an Veterans need to be callin march protest against this POS Muslime baster an his POS staff The ship of fools ! OMG LOOK OUT WORLD ! Were in big trouble !

  13. Look at all the damage Obama has done in the Middle east. Libya , Egypt, Saudi Arabia and one it goes. All these pro American leaders are gone and for a whilte Muslim Brotherhood was running Egypt. Obama wants to have a “talk” with Iran. He is crazy. So glad Bibi won.

  14. I think the U.S. needs to reassess the intelligence of trying to use diplomacy with a terroristic nation whose STATED GOAL is to wipe Israel off the map. Obama needs SOMEONE to shake some sense into him! Or at least teach him the foreign policy (and middle eastern history) he has neglected to study over the past 6 years!

  15. Aubrey Moreland, Israel shall surely seek the LORD and follow Him. As per Amos’ prophecy Israel went into captivity and have returned and are returning. But the warning is still valid. Israel should seek the LORD and depart from any evil that may be there. God bless Israel.

  16. The US will reassess? Obama and his White House Gang will reassess. He has a phone and a pen, he has made that very clear. Don’t want to wish my life away, but wish I could wiggle my nose and two years would pass quickly. God bless our country in the meantime. Good vs evil. Good always wins, God is in control and will be in God’s timing. Patience, patience.

  17. We can do anything about it. What I learn about Obama if he hate someone, or if someone won over him, he would plot revange a huge one. We should all pray to God, that he would not have success in his revange. Obama is bad news for any country in the world, because he think he owns this world and everyone should bow to him.

  18. Man do I hope that Bibi does what he wants to all of the terrorists. Anyone who crosses into Israel or onto the soil gets shot. Obama only has two years left to make problems for the next president. Why can’t he just go quietly. Oh and Michelle is on another trip “a meeting”She won’t bwe able to do this on the American People in two years,vacations are on them. 🙂

  19. For all of you that are apprehensive of this president being a Muslim sympathize or perhaps a counterfeit Christian you have to listen to this. History being made in a bad way. And it is a fact 69% of Jews voted for this president. Now tell me my facebook friends what do you think. For me I am sort of confused. And the Republicans are fighting tooth and nail for Israel right to exist. Confusing right.

  20. That is worded wrong.. Obama is not “betraying” Israel has done enough of that selling our military secrets to China and facilitating the improvement of weaponry to Russia.. Coming to the U.S by Congressional invite to undermine our presidency.. That is betrayal.. Biting the hand that feeds you.. is betraying friendship..

  21. Mr President, have you lost your marbles? Or iis this part of your scheme to eliminate our homeland and rightful land of our people, Israel off the map in lieu of your desire to promote Muslim erxtremism? Bad, bad, bad. Shame on my people who voted for you!

  22. I just do not get it why Jews vote Democrat. Are they this naive or just do not care for their heritage. Hope they wake up. Why do people vote the way to do? For swing voters, the answer is usually the state of the economy. For most, however, voting patterns are surprisingly fixed. People tend to vote for one party consistently over time. For Jewish American voters, the party of choice has been the Democratic party. Conservatives have been trying to crack the code for a number of years on how to get Jewish voters over to their side. Based on the findings of the new “Portrait of Jewish Americans” survey from the Pew Research Center, Republicans will need to find a different key. Jews are likely going to be Democrats for the foreseeable future. Let’s start with the fact that the most important determining factor of voting pattern is partisan affiliation. If you identify as a Democrat, you are far more likely to vote Democratic than if you identify as an independent or a Republican. In this instance, 70% of Jews self-identify as leaning to or members of the Democratic party. That compares with just 49% of the American public overall who at least lean Democratic. Only 22% of Jews consider themselves as leaning Republican, compared to 39% of the overall public. Orthodox Jews, who represent no more than 10% of the United States’ Jewish population, tend to make up the majority of Republican Jews. Given their self-identification, it’s unlikely that Jewish Americans will break from their Democratic ways. But a closer look at why Jews are Democratic should give Republicans further pause. US Jews are very liberal: 49% of Jewish adults identify as liberal, compared with just 19% who say they are conservative. That’s nearly a mirror-opposite of the general public, of whom 38% say they are conservative and 21% say they are liberal. That finding holds for age groups, albeit that Jews become less liberal as you look at the spectrum from Reform towards Orthodox. The reason American Jews are liberal is because they tend to sympathize with the less fortunate and with minorities: like many black and Hispanic Americans, 54% of Jews believe government should be bigger, with more services, compared to just 40% of the public at large who believe the same. And 82% of Jews think that homosexuality should be accepted by society, while just 57% of the general public believes so. Tellingly, Jews sound a lot more like a minority when it comes to discrimination than one might expect from a group of people who are mostly white. Despite problems between Israel and its Arab (and Persian) neighbors, 72% of Jews say Muslims in America are discriminated against, versus just 47% of the public at large who say that. While 64% of Jews say there is discrimination against African Americans, only 47% of all Americans do. This gap extends to attitudes towards Latino Americans, as well. The roots of these liberal values probably lie in Jews’ own understanding of what they went through in their history, with 73% of Jews holding the belieef that remembering the Holocaust is an essential part of being Jewish. Indeed, Jews say it is the most essential part of what it means to be Jewish. Third on the list, though, at 56%, is working for justice and equality. It’s unlikely that outreach by religious Christians, who tend to be very conservative, on the issue of Israel is going to break this pattern. Jews simply don’t feel any real affinity towards Evangelical Christians. Jews, for instance, don’t buy into the idea that there is a (secularist) war against Christianity, as Rand Paul has argued. Only 16% of Jews agree there is discrimination against Evangelical Christians in the United States (a much larger 30% of all Americans think there is). On the issue of Israel, only 40% of Jews believe God “gave them Israel”. This percentage is lower than the general public’s belief (at 44%) and far below white Evangelicals’ 82% conviction. Other data indicate that Jews wouldn’t be likely to follow anyone who tried use Israel as a wedge issue to separate Jews and their Democratic inclinations. While it’s true that 69% of Jews, including at least 60% of all age groups, feel an attachment to Israel, the problem for Republican recruiters is that only 43% of Jews believe that caring about Israel is an essential part of being Jewish. That’s far lower than the percentage who say the same thing for remembering the Holocaust or working for justice and equality. Perhaps most telling is that most Jews don’t feel the United States needs to be closer to Israel: nearly two-thirds (65%) of Jewish Americans feel that US support for Israel is either “about right” or too much. This holds across all age groups, and it’s matches attitudes in the population at large. In fact, Jewish voters are 19pt more likely to say they support Obama’s handling the US policy towards Israel than all Americans. When you put it all together, Jewish voters are Democratic for a reason. They believe in the party’s liberal ideology, and identify with its core values. They will not be swayed by Republican attempts to switch allegiances, because on the key issue on which the GOP (partly under Evangelical influence) highlights – diehard support for Israel – just doesn’t impress Jews much. They don’t view Israel as essential to their political allegiances in the United States, and even if they did, they think Democratic policy is just fine.

  23. I have never seen anything like Obama and his staff, this is the most divisive, revengeful President I have seen in THE PEOPLES White House. What is wrong with Congress, this man needs to go? Silence is not golden, Obama has an agenda an it appears to include taking power away from America. He considers Iran the victims and America the bully. It wouldn’t suprise me at any moment he would decide to take his pen and give America a new name. We will soon not have a voice.

  24. “Betray” Horse puckey! More like finally pursuing justice. Remember one hundred and sixty three Holocaust survivors call “Gaza a concentration camp.” Zionists in Israel response to these people, “They should gassed you too.” Nasty criminal Zionists. P3

  25. obama is unbelieveable, seeking revenge for not getting his own way, even if it did cost us 350,000 sent over to Israel to defeat Bib. never seen such a poor loser as obama. instead of thinking of the Amer. people he is seeking revenge. so unprofessional. such a poor leader

  26. He has not only become the WORST PRESIDENT EVER !!!He is also the Worst Jack Ass. I do not understand how he can legally get by with his Crap. If he messes with Israel. He will have the Wrath of God on him. If people thinks he wont turn the Muslums in this country on us. They better wake up and be prepared to defend themselves.

  27. The two bushes cracked the head off the boil without healing anything. You notice, your beloved Bibi, who barely won, has backed off his pledge to not move toward a two state solution. Obama is working toward Peace, and the continued existence and thriving of Israel. But Israel needs to quit killing innocents, too.

  28. Israel does not kill innocents. Palestinian troops have no uniforms and dress as civilians. They hid armaments in schools, mosques, hospitals and private home making their own people human shields. They used concrete given them by Israel,, to build schools and infrastructure, to build terror tunnels instead. They lob rockets daily into Israel, terrorizing the families. Only Israel protects the rights of all…Jews, Arab Israelis and Christians. Read Honest Reporting.com. open your mind.

  29. The day that America goverment turns on Israel judgment will come to this nation from God. The Hedge of protection is down because of the sins of America and the unrepenting people. The goverment is evil through and through and through those that are called by his name we must pray and repent of our sins and God will forgive and bless.

  30. Tony it will never happen there is no one in Washington with guts enough to do it. Mr Grant becareful of your words for out of you mouth can come your own judgment. Bib is in there because God wants him and I don’t think he cares what you think.

  32. Debbie it has already started for two reason the evil in goverment and the sins of America people. God punished Israel when they sacrifiest their babies in the arms of Mulock they pagan God. They would thrown them into a big plate heated red hot alive. Today we do the same thing with the unborn in the tune of 60 million babies have been killed pulled apart burned and we think the 6 million that Hitler killed was bad. This country is appointed judgment unless we repent and now.

  34. This Muzzie in the WH has shown his hate for Jews and Israel since he stepped foot in the position of President; him and the Jew hating bitch Clinton when she was Sec of State.Not only seeking the political and sovereign existence of Israel, this POS and the Bitch even tried to attack the faith and culture of Israel while defending and protecting Islam…. Friday, January 22,2010 was a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer concerning a defense contract company, Trijicon of Wixom, Mich, agreeing to remove references to the Christian bible from combat rifle sights made for the U.S. military, a major buyer of the company’s gear.The inscriptions are not obvious and appear in raised lettering at the end of the stock number. Trijicon of says it will also provide to the armed forces free of charge modification kits to remove the Scripture citations from the telescoping sights already in use.The references to Bible passages raised concerns that the citations break a government rule that bars proselytizing by American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, which are predominantly Muslim countries. YET, the US State Department under Clinton had asked the Israeli Foreign Ministry to decrease Yad l’Achim activities against missionaries.Yad l’Achim is an Israeli organization that works to keep Christian missionaries from attempting to convert Jews within the borders of Israel.The new State Department report on worldwide freedom of religion gave Israel a failing grade with regard to its level of religious tolerance, even though the practice of other faiths is protected by Israeli law. In January 2009 the U.S. Secretary of State (Clinton) re-designated Saudi Arabia as a Country of Particular Concern (CPC) under the International Religious Freedom Act for violations of religious freedom. In connection with this designation, the Secretary issued a waiver of sanctions “to further the purposes of the Act.” Saudi Arabia being a country that allows NO other religion except Islam within its borders.
    This news story about Trijicon only shows the double standard of the US government. While they absolutely can’t take a chance of insulting their oil peddling “allies” with spreading another faith, even so completely cryptically hidden, they press Israel to allow Christian missionaries free run within Israel’s borders to convert Jews away from their faith….Remember that when the bitch Clinton runs to take Obama’s place.

  35. Todd Leith, why don’t you take your buckeye and shove it. How about we send you to Iraq, or Iran, better yet Syria sounds even better. You are just like your obama lover. Go to hell along with him and do us all a favor. Must I apologize for your ugly ass too.

  36. Cindy, you need to wake up. Obama is not working towards peace. He has caused so much heartache in this world. He refuses to close our borders, never criticizes the ISIS or any other Muslim terrorists. You liberals always blame Bush and Israel. Stop drinking the kool aid and learn some truth.

  37. Bush started this…stole money in Iraq
    ..kill Hussain…for a personal vendetta…..Bush could of gotten osuma …he had him …then he went opposite to Afghanistan instead…he never fought in any war..pussy;!!! Now, we pay for his retirement….our taxes…

  38. I am thrilled that we finally have a POTUS with the cojones to stand up to an Israeli PM who thinks he can control America. Support for Israel is plummeting around the world, even in the US, and it is all due to Bibi. BTW, I am a Jew and a former resident of Israel, and no way in Hell does Bibi speak for me.

  41. FDR was asked a few months ahead of Israel’s rebirth if he would recognize Israel as a new nation, and he wrote a letter to the muslim Official, I forget the details, heard William Federer tell this. FDR mailed the letter saying NO! Under NO CIRCUMSTANCES would he do so. FDR died one week later. Herbert Hoover had worked for a Jewish Man as one of his first jobs – a haberdasher and hat maker – and he instantly recognized Israel the minute he heard of it being declared..

  42. I don’t believe the Kenyan trusts Bibi to be his subordinate any more. Many voters in Israel do not wish to be subordinate to the Muslim President either.
    The Muslim Brotherhood has thoroughly infiltrated the Obama administration and other branches of the federal government. One of the most outrageous of those appointments is Mohamed Elibiary, a senior member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council. According to a report by the Center for Security Policy, Elibiary supports brokering a U.S. partnership with the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist group.

  43. Obama you are an idiot !, Obama you can’t handle it that Netanyahu won fair square as prime minster Of Israel again , stop acting like a 2 year old ! by the way you lose OBama , because the un security will not betray Israel! Take a good look , you are betraying your country and the american people! so in other words the American people and congress and also the UN should start be betraying you!

  44. A betrayal of Israel will be the final nail in America’s coffin. “…and I will curse them who curse you.” And those we elected who can change things just stand by and do NOTHING! What a great bunch of leaders. Leading us right down the path of destruction. Pathetic bunch!

  45. Iran’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei called for “Death to America” on Saturday, a day after President Barack Obama appealed to Iran to seize a “historic opportunity” for a nuclear deal and a better future, and as US Secretary of State John Kerry claimed substantial progress toward an accord.
