Obama Pressing Netanyahu as Government Split on 2-State Solution

Israel must agree to give up East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan before the talks have begun.
"What you give is what you get." Israelis no longer trust Obama on Israel's security while he negotiates with Iran.

"What you give is what you get." Israelis no longer trust Obama on Israel's security while he negotiates with Iran.

But the left inside the coalition has not been silent, either. Minister Jacob Perry of Yesh Atid (Lapid’s party) told the same Reshet Bet host that Israel must embrace the 1967 line, possibly with a few minor alterations. He suggested there’s a majority in Israel for a near-complete retreat from Judea and Samaria—he didn’t say anything about East Jerusalem.

Then Perry, who used to be the head of the Shabbac, Israel’s semi-clandestine internal security police, warned that if the prime minister had to make coalition changes in mid sail to facilitate a deal, he would.

And Labor party leader Shelly Yachimovich promised Bibi that, should Naftali Bennett’s party leave the coalition over the 2-state deal, she and her party would provide him with a political safety net. It’s a math issue: Bennett has 12 seats, Shelly has 15.

Of course, this means that in order to end Jewish life beyond the green line, the Labor party would vote in favor of a budget that it spent the past month attacking as fattening the rich at the expense of the middle class and the poor in Israel—even predicting the collapse of whole segments of the country because the new budget is so harsh, neglecting the neediest, taxing unfairly folks with middle income.

But it’s all worth it, for a chance to kill the “settlements.”

  1. do not give an an inch what is yours is for ever and more too arabs are free under jews rule than in any muslim world.

  2. Notwithstanding Mr Yanover's alarmist and anti-Obama rants, the Palestinian leadership is supplying Mr Netanyahu ample opportunity to sit back and watch as they are painted as the ones avoiding any negotiations.

    The spectacle of PLO factions' infighting will send Mr Kerry home to join the list of US diplomats whose efforts to get 2 sides to sit at a table have been thwarted by incompatible outcome expectations.

  3. The Palästians are n o t the princes of the 1001 night myricle. There are Terrorist see Munich Fürstenfel-Bruck see Entebbe where German Terrorist and German Terrorist work hand in hand. Israel and some Arabs are not foolish schoolboys who need some hard wors of Uncle Sam!

  4. Vicky Cheatham says:

    Obama can't even help his own country, much less tell Jews what to do in their own country. Don't listen to him, I'm praying for the peace of Israel.

  5. Joe Khoury says:

    Israel has nothing to gain by giving and land to Palestinians – and The EU , instead of facing their own internal problems, are deflecting their miserable outcome in order to appear relevant. Any reasonab;e, logical person can see that Israel has the moral and ethical upper hand.

  6. Sir Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu never accept to cut Israel. Israel is one and not two. The holy land is indivisible according to the Bible. Bishop Amani Placide.

  7. Anonymous says:

    The best cann be a Federation like in Switzerland, so it would two states in one.

  8. Mr Netanyahu, take no notice of Obama -Read Zechariah 12 v2-3 and trust God-He is the one to obey-DO NOT DIVIDE YOUR LAND Sir.

  9. Dorothy Andreassend says:

    Israel is not dividable! It belongs to the Jewish people by order of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Stand strong Prime Minister Netanyahu. Millions are praying for you and Israel. Listen to God not the scheming voices of the world governments.

  10. David Ensz says:

    We just came back from a 10 day tour of Israel! We loved it. I agree; Israel should not go back to the 1967 land area as Obama suggests, unless we are willing to give all the territory back to Mexico that we won in the Spanish-American War!

  11. Charlie Hall says:

    "Israel must agree to give up East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan before the talks have begun."

    This isn't true. The 1967 borders are a "foundation" for negotiations, not the final result. Israel agreed to this in 2003, ten years ago, when it accepted the Bush Road Map.

  12. Charlie Hall says:

    David Ensz The US took no territory from Mexico during the Spanish American War.

  13. Perhaps, if Obama would stay out of Israel's face and tend to the much needed unbiased running of our country both nations would be much better off. I pray that Israel will not give up one inch of what God promised them.

  14. Exactly as you say, Sir!

  15. (P.S.: Are you Palestinian/Arabic yoruself I'm left wondering?)
