Obama Reaffirms Commitment to Israel in Sharon Message

By: JTA

President Obama reaffirmed his commitment to Israel’s security in his condolence message on the death of Ariel Sharon.

“On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to the family of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and to the people of Israel on the loss of a leader who dedicated his life to the State of Israel,” Obama said Saturday morning, within hours of the announcement of the death of Sharon at 85.

“We reaffirm our unshakable commitment to Israel’s security and our appreciation for the enduring friendship between our two countries and our two peoples,” the statement said. “We continue to strive for lasting peace and security for the people of Israel, including through our commitment to the goal of two states living side-by-side in peace and security. As Israel says goodbye to Prime Minister Sharon, we join with the Israeli people in honoring his commitment to his country.”

Sharon left office in 2006 after a stroke, months after he orchestrated Israel’s forced deportation of its citizens from the Gaza Strip, a policy that led Netanyahu to leave the government at the time.

    Could he possibly have made a weaker statement about Arik?

  2. Kenton Quint says:

    Don’t believe it.

  3. Donna Kocurek says:

    Don't believe anything that comes out of his mouth. It is a lie.

  4. Dianne Roberson says:

    Obama is still saying two States, which means he wants to divide Israel again. Israel belongs to the Jews because God made an unconditional, everlasting land covenant with Israel,

  5. Judi Fradkin says:

    Taqqiya.(and I dint mean shofar blowing)

  6. liar, liar, pants should be on fire!

  7. Israel ,WE Know BS Barry Is A Criminal Muslim Sociopath and Our Government Is His Enabler ! Act Accordingly !

  8. Please do not believe obama when he says he is commited to Israel. He is more interested in supplying his muslim brothers with arms and money. Stand firm Israel, God is on your side.

  9. Edward Lobel says:

    Please do not believe Carol Hull Holden when she says she is committed to Israel, She is more interested in hating him as she is more interested in giving comfort and aid to Israel's enemies. She has no Jewish interest in Israel and is an evangelical looking for all the Jews to be in Israel so her rapture could happen and all Jews will be forced to convert or go to the fires of hell for all eternity!

  10. Edward Lobel says:

    Do not believe anything that comes out of Donna Kocurek's mouth as she does not know what she is talking about!

  11. Donna Kocurek says:

    Are you of the belief that truth is only relivant when it agrees with your perspective? Does political correctness blur the lines between fact and perspective?

  12. Edward Lobel says:

    Donna Kocurek That is not the issue, the issue here is that you are wrong! If there were a Jewish Talaban, I am sure you would be a member. You have no idea of what you are saying

    On your first statement I am not sure you are correct, HOWEVER, I fully agree with your second statement and defy anyone to say it is not true!

    Wow that is pretty bold for a Democrat. Ignorance is not bliss. And as for your disrespect, it is obvious your ability to carry on a conversation is challenging at best. Sleep well Edward your world is about to change.

  17. Donna Kocurek says:

    Edward that is what he is saying. Don't you watch his speeches?

  18. Donna Kocurek says:

    Edward who taught you to be so angry? To be a grown man you sure act as if your a little boy who isn't being heard

  19. Edward Lobel says:

    Donna Kocurek No matter how you try to paint it, you are an ignorant idiot and that is the truth! Your problem is that you do not accept the truth! My ability to carry on a conversation based in fact, truth, honesty and integrity is far superior to your fictional comments. You are simply like the Taliban and now that you have been found out, you try to blame other people for your ignorance. I sleep very well because unlike you, I speak the truth!

  20. Edward Lobel says:

    Donna Kocurek Not only do I watch his speeches, I actually understand the words coming out of his mouth! I also read what he says. I listen and hear with an open mind (and ears,) which is more than I can say for you.
