Obama Fudges Facts on PA Terror and Israeli Security

Obama uttered ominous hints that he continues to whitewash terror to advance the “peace process.” The president laid the groundwork for telling Israelis what is best for them when he speaks tomorrow.

President Barack Obama distorted Palestinian Authority terror at a joint press conference with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday night and asserted that 2012 was a good year in Judea and Samaria because no one died from terrorist attacks.

He also implicitly stated Israel could settle for less than total security so long as the possibility of rocket attacks from Judea and Samaria were “diminished.”

President Obama tried to minimize his comments on the “peace process” during the “Barack and Bibi” show, which showed that they are the best of chums who never disagree.

The president called Netanyahu “Bibi” several times, and both of them poured lavish praise on each other while being remarkably honest on Iran. Prime Minister Netanyahu admitted for the first time that President Obama is correct in saying that Iran is at least a year from manufacturing a nuclear weapon. He differentiated between Iran’s ability to make a weapon and its capability to produce enough enrich uranium for one.

It was the “peace process” that prompted comments from the president that were enough to show that his advisers still think terrorist attacks, at least in Israel, are only dangerous when people are killed. That was the same kind of thinking that kept Israel from striking at Hamas terrorists in Gaza so long as rockets landed in “open areas” and wounded “only” a few farmers and foreign workers. After missiles started wounding and murdering civilians closer to Tel Aviv last November, Israel finally “had a right to defend itself.”

President Obama made two statements that ignore reality and which will give him the excuse to lecture Israelis at his speech at the Jerusalem Conference Center Thursday night that Israel faces disaster if it does not admit that the country cannot exist so long as Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria remain an “obstacle” to a Palestinian Authority state.

First of all, the president said that there was not a single death in Judea and Samaria in 2012 due to Palestinian terror.

Secondly, he stated that a peace agreement with the Palestinian Authority cannot be concluded until Israelis feel that the possibility of rocket attacks has “diminished.” He did not say that there should be “no chance” of missile attacks but only that the “possibility of rockets has diminished.”

A “diminishing” possibility is what the United States and well-meaning starry-eyed Israeli dreamers, like President Shimon Peres, supposedly created in 2005 with the expulsion of Jews and the withdrawal of all Israeli soldiers from Gaza.

Knesset Members scoffed at right-warnings that rockets would land on Ashkelon, let alone Tel Aviv. President Peres found himself stating later that he simply cannot understand why Hamas would attack Israel with rockets after the withdrawal from Gaza.

Obama’s mention that no one died in attacks from Judea and Samaria last year is even more off the mark.

First of all, there were many serious injuries.

Secondly, an infant’s life is hanging in the air at this very moment after last week’s savage rock-throwing terrorist attack on a central Samaria highway. The rock-throwers achieved their aim of causing a crash, similar to the fatal accident in Kiryat Arba in September 2011 that killed Asher Palmer and is two-year-old son. But that happened less than four months before 2012, so Obama could forget about it in his wrap-up for the year. And last week’s attack is in 2013, so that also does not count.

Thirdly, the reason there were no deaths is not because Palestinian Authority terrorists did not try but because the IDF has been able to deploy from within Judea and Samaria to prevent them, an impossibility if Mahmoud Abbas takes full control of Judea and Samaria and excludes the IDF.

Here is only a partial list from the IDF on terrorist activity in 2012 and not including daily rock-throwing and firebombing attacks.

– IDF forces stopped a would-be bomber over Passover at a checkpoint east of Shechem (Nablus) in northern Samaria. The terrorist was carrying improvised explosive devices, three knives and 50 bullets.

– Two Palestinian teens carrying bombs and guns were nabbed by Israeli forces in northern Samaria.

– IDF forces uncovered four improvised bombs on two Palestinians at a crossing north of Jericho.

  3. Are the only crimes in America counted where somebody is murdered? Is assault, rape, arson, robbery, and attempted murder not crimes also?

    The man has some unique definitions of crime, that do not fit any know legal system.

    We are to give credit to the Arabs when they fail because of our actions to prevent their war crimes? In what deluded mind?

  5. Obama is not being fair or realistic. Asking Israel to take" less" terrorism is quite insulting to Israelis and gives the PA the courage to ask fo rmore U.S. support. Congress had better rein this man in.

  6. Ani Stubbs says:

    BHO lied!!! Shocking! Just kidding. We all knew he was going to. He hates Jews

  7. Edward Lobel says:

    Arie, if you are as smart as you think you are and as tough as you think you are then why are you not running Israel or for that matter, the United States! You seem to know in advance what everyone is thinking and what they may say (just like the person who wrote the article.) you NEVER seem to back up your arguements with FACTS, but simply made up statements which you want to think are true. As I have told you so many times before, when you make up facts and think they are true, everyone knows how foolish you are and pays no attention to you.

  8. Edward Lobel says:

    NOT NEARLY AS MUCH AS YOU DO! Every time you say something stupid like President Obama hates Jews shows to the world just how ignorant you are!

  9. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    The FACT that you have nothing to say but stage a personal attack indicates clearly your mindset – and your drowning in kool aid. If you bothered to read my comments, I ALWAYS back them up eddie, unlike your ilk who only know attacks when someone disagrees with them. You are the perfect example of an obama liberal who believes only you have a right to state comments and those that disagree should shut up.And you "told me?" WOW. Typical kool aid swallower on his knee pads

    Come back when you grow up so you can talk to the adults in the room!

  10. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Edward Lobel Seems, despite your attacks, it is eddie that is belittled and laughed at by all. Typical libtard that has no ability to engage in intelligent discourse when people disagree with him. Only personal attacks.

    What's it like everyone knowing you are naught more then a kapo that would gleefully stoke the ovens for Jews if your lord and savior obama instructed you to?

    Come back when you grow up so you can talk to the adults in the room!

  11. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Chairman Obama had no problem speaking with a photo of arafat in the background yesterday, but on July 28, 2010 insisted that the background C.
    ross be covered prior to his speech at Georgetown University..As they say in Latin: "Res ipsa loquitor".

  12. to Edward lobel, she isnt ignorant, He does favour the palestinians and since he lied about being a christian, as true christians do not condone abortions and same sex marriages, as he condone same, she is right in saying Obama hates Israel or the Lord G-d of Israel. sh

  13. isn't Obama using propaganda, when he wont speak to the government of Israel, but wants to address the young people, and turn them against their own faith and race?

  14. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    Sientje Seinen If you read eddie boy's posts, you will note he really never says anything other then fall on his knees for his "lord and savior"

  15. Arie's Pragmatic Politics says:

    obama thinks the children of Israel are as gullible as the children of the US

  16. Ron Kall says:

    Being new here, Edward, it is clear who is an isn't ignorant. He is the biggest threat Israel has ever faced since he is completely pro muslim and is a muslim!! More F-16s and Abrams tanks for Morsi?! Egypt has only one use for these weapons. Wouldn't you agree, Edward?!

  17. Ron Kall says:

    The already brainwashed children of America don't have the perspective of knowing someone that was blown to bits by the wonderful arabs!
