Obama: ‘Israel Doesn’t Know What Its Own Best Interests Are’

Lately, concerns regarding Obama’s relationship with Israel have centered on defense secretary nominee Hagel, who chairs the Atlantic Council think tank, which last month published both a column titled “Israel’s Apartheid Policy” and a policy paper stating that Iran “should be viewed as a potential natural partner” for the U.S.

In 2008, Hagel took a direct shot at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), telling former Middle East negotiator Aaron David Miller in a quote that appeared in Miller’s book, The Much Too Promised Land, that “the Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people” in Washington.

Hagel did not sign the following letters, among others backed by AIPAC, while he served in the Senate: an August 2006 letter asking the European Union to declare Hizbullah a terrorist organization; a November 2001 letter asking President George W. Bush not to meet Yasir Arafat until Arafat took steps to end violence against Israel; and an October 2000 letter in support of Israel. He did, however, sign a 2009 letter asking Obama to directly negotiate with Hamas.

One Response to “Obama: ‘Israel Doesn’t Know What Its Own Best Interests Are’”

  1. In my opinion Netanyahu is the best person to continue representing Israel's best.
    interests.

    As far as the settlements, I believe that the settlements that are contiguous to Jerusalem are very important for Israel to keep, E1 is such an area also, although no one is hearing that Israel is open to negotiating a road through E1 to shorten car traffic that would have to spend an extra 20 minutes going east of Maleh Adumim.

    I think any new settlements that aren't very close to the green line are a very bad idea.

    President Obama would like for Israel to agree with Mahmoud Abbas in giving up Maleh Adumim and it's 40,000 residents in return for endless war from Gaza and a promise that the West Bank Palestinian state would be nice.

    He is using the threat of sitting out resolutions in the Security Council.

    With Senator Chuck Schumer capitulating to Hagel based on an absurd last minute.
    change of heart from Hagel, the President knows he will face to Democratic opposition to anything he does. He also expect that most Jews will believe that.
    the President is acting in Israel's best interests.

    It is very important to demonstrate that the Jewish Democratic community does not agree.

    This was shown when Forest-Hills voted a Republican in protest.

    Dumping Chuck Schumer should be item number one to demonstrate that New York.
    voters want to be represented by someone who will not vote for an atomic bomb.
    over Tel Aviv, just because of a false promise or the President's wishes.
