Obama Calls Netanyahu, Abbas to Follow the Script for Direct Talks

Obama’s trust of Netanyahu and Abbas not upset Kerry’s peace process cart is zero, so he called both leaders on Thursday just in case they forgot who is calling the shots.
Thou shalt not criticize President Barack Obama.

Thou shalt not criticize President Barack Obama.

President Barack Obama telephones Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday, making a front stage appearance to make sure Israel stays on the White House’s straight and narrow path for a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority.

The White House issued an announcement on the phone call, just to make sure it received major press coverage.

President Obama also called  Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

Details of the phone calls may be released later on Thursday, but it can be assumed that both leaders were politely warned not to say anything or take any action that might upset  U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s apple cart.

The big question is whether Israel will announce new housing construction for Jews in Judea and Samaria. The Hebrew-language Maariv newspaper reported on Wednesday that Netanyahu struck a secret deal with Jewish Home’s Housing Minister Uri Ariel to announce more housing starts in return for the party’s swallowing the bitter pill of freeing 1,000 terrorists in order to resume direct talks after three years.

Abbas has warned that he will scuttle the talks if Israel goes ahead with more housing for Jews in Judea and Samaria.

    Teleprompter boy knows spript, and nothing but the script…

  2. Carolin Knox says:

    I pray Abbas "scuttles" the talks!

  3. Michelle Albagli says:

    To quote a common expression in my native language: what a bloody rotten cheek!

  4. Cody Flecker says:

    The issues in this new round of talks are relatively simple. How much land will Israel give up to the new Palestinian State. That's it. The Palestinians will give nothing in return. No stopping of their eternal hatred for the Jewish People, No stopping of their war against the Jews, No creation of peace between the two warring factions. It's Gimme Gimme for the Palestinian side, and for the Israeli side, it will be Take it Take it.

  5. and why is Israel letting the American Dictatorship run things I don't get it?

  6. It makes me angry and I don't even live in Israel and I am American.

  7. The real question is, what is King Obama's trump card that's encouraging him to arrogantly call the shots to Bibi and perhaps to Abbas. Abbas is simple – Dollars! For Bibi not so simple. Armaments? United Nations support? Iran? We can only pray for Bibi to stand strong. Israel's security is tied to borders, land and a Palestinian State that can present no threat to Israel. The Left will not ask Bibi to endanger Israel and the Right Wing expects him to continue to be Bibi Netenyahu.

  8. You've got a very good chance of getting your prayers answered – the alternative for Abbas is execution. Personally I can't see Abbas anywhere but at the end of a rope!

  9. Are you speaking about the facial kind or the kind that Mighty "O" sits on?

  10. Obama it is none of your business!

  11. Rue McDowell says:

    iT IS A FALSE PEACE OBLAMO WANTS..Israel do not give in to our fake leader.

  12. A genuine peace process must be one in which both parties are willing to shift ground. It must not be one-sided.

  13. Yechiel Baum says:

    Obama the playwrite?

  14. Yechiel Baum says:

    Obama disgraces the office of the president by putting his feet on the President's desk. What CEO would do such a low class thing?

  15. Gary Horwitz says:

    Obama is insulting us by showing the soles of his shoes and putting them on a desk that is the property of all Americans.

  16. Hey african monkey, stay out of Israel internal affairs, look home issues like NSA, IRS, AP, Bengahzi, budget, etc:.

  17. the american president is very mentally ill. very.

  18. I will never figure out how Obama received another four years. I DID NOT VOTE FOR HIM. What does he mean, he is calling the shots. Who died and made him boss? What Israel decides to do is Israel's business, not Obamas. He has nothing to lose, but Israel has a lot to lose. In the name of God please don't give up your land. I pray for Israel and I pray for the peace of Jerusalem. I would ask that you pray for America. We need an honest President, one that loves America and her allies. God Bless You.

  19. Neil Rossiter says:

    Israel is a sovereign, independent state and should not be dictated to by that islamic terrorist in the whitehouse – or any other self seeking US politician. How quickly would the US dispatch another country if one tried to dictate US home and foreign policy? Like Britain in it's empire building days, the US runs rough-shod over the world with it's arrogance and has a "sod the world" mentality when it comes to the disaster and tragedy it leaves in it's wake.
