It is particularly hard to believe that the U.S. congress will “soon release” the half billion dollars, just months after the PA  ignored U.S. pleas that they not seek an upgrade in status at the United Nations, and instead remain on the path of bilateral negotiations.

Whether or not President Obama is going to hand over half a billion dollars to the PA during his brief visit –  there are many people who would have to sign off on it before it could ever happen – it is extremely alarming – if true – that the U.S. president told Arab American leaders that he plans to bypass the Israeli government and the U.S. congress in order to obtain concessions directly from the Israeli people.

  1. I think this is a case of wishful thinking. For one thing Congress isn't going to be bypassed by the President over funding.

    Second the Israeli government is to left of the Israeli public. He can talk all he wants – a vast majority of Israelis aren't in the mood for any concessions whatsoever.

  2. I dont care where it comes from. I trust Obama more then Arab Americans or the Arab Journalist. Again I direct you to FACTS from the Israeli Military…."never had better relations". So I trust the Israeli Military more….yes. Not sure how many times Obama has to prove himself. Whats next? His Birth Certicate again? Cause its in the same parrallel.

  3. Right. This has been said since he is in office…already 5 years. Meantime…Bin Laden has gone (Yes I give credit to Obama) and Israel MOD is in love with Obama. But gain,,,I should listen o Arabs FOX and th deeted instead of FACTS and the Israeli MOD. talk about being dillusional….

  4. BHO is going directly to the Israeli public…? The same public that has nearly voted the left out of existence? Is he really that full of himself? Is this money he's purportedly offering to the Arabs coming from some reduction in his golf with Tiger budget? There's no other money around…

  6. If these reports are true, BO is more clueless than I ever credited before. If thy are untrue let us hear the rebuttal from his actions and his tongue. If this politics, it is crazy politics I haven't seen the like of since the Governor Turnbuckle era when Minnesota was sold down the rat hole for a couple hundred dollars each. As i asked elsewhere, "if there is a statesman out there somewhere, please stand up and raise your hand so we can be sure to take note."

  7. Obama is a community organizer. It's not just what he does best, it's all he knows. He's a one trick pony.

    So, he's going to Israel to community organize? Problem is that Jews — not he — INVENTED community organizing. So if the professor is going to Israel to preach to the choir, he'd be better off staying home and listening to a good speech by his trusted reverends Wright, Farrakhan, Ayers, and the other arab coddlers/Israel haters.

    "King" Barack Hussein of America is not as brilliant as he thinks he is; Israelis are not as stupid as he hopes they are.

  8. One has to remember that 70% of the Jewish voters in the USA voted not once but twice for a man who has on more than one occassion insulted Israel and the Jewish People. This trip to Israel is just another attempt to diminish Israeli leadership in the area by promoting the Palestinian cause. Quite frankly it is a waste of time and money for Israel to invite the President, and for the President to be in Israel. Giving an additional $500 million dollars to the Palestinians is like putting money down a rat hole. I can think of better ways of spending the tax payers money than that.

  9. There is no such right as a right of a nation to exist or not. Either it exists or does not exist.

    Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people is, therefore it exists. Its coming into existence did not require any one's approval but the will and strength of the Jewish people. Its right to exist is not negotiable nor subject to argument. Israel's existence does not depend on whether some professor thinks Israel has no right to exist because it will not treat non-citizens as citizens. It does not depend on how it treats its minorities, gays, refugees or neighbors.

    Israel may cease to exist if another nation militarily destroys Israel and exiles its population as Rome did or if the citizens chose to disband the state whether at the ballot box or by civil war.

    Egypt never lost a right to exist despite the actions of the Fatamids, Mamluks or Nasser. Germany, Italy, Austria, and Japan did not lose a right to exist notwithstanding the atrocities each committed before or during world war II. The Soviet Union did not cease to exist because it controlled states in Eastern Europe such as Poland and Romania. China did not lose a right to exist because it invaded Tibet or that it threatens Taiwan existence. Great Britain, Portugal and Spain did not lose a right to exist by colonizing much of the world. Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia, never lost a right to exist because their societies were built over top pre-existing aboriginal cultures.

    Czechoslovakia ceased to exist, because its citizens decided they wanted to separate into 2 states. It did not forfeit a right to exist because some professor at an American University or France, Belgium or Singapore thought the state had no right to exist.

  10. So Obama is giving another $500 million to the PA. You can bet that only a small fraction of that money ends up where it is needed while the rest goes into the secret bank accounts of the PA and Hamas leaderships.

  11. So why did so many Jews vote for him in both presidential elections? Face it, Jews are their own worst enemy and this coming from a Jew. Most Jews flock toward left leaning/liberal/socialist ideals. This Jew does not.

  12. Gerry Weiss, Israel will never cease to exist, as it the country which the Lord G-d has promised to Isaac and Jacob descendants. like in Psalm 105 "Firm stands His Word to Abraham spoken
    His oath to Isaac never broken
    His everlasting covenant
    With Israel, G-d will not recant
    He said "To you this land I give
    That as my heirs you there may live." Keep the faith.

  13. Alan Kardon If you are implying that a sound basis for justifying Israel's existence *to the world* is the Shoah or a UN resolution, you are mistaken. While these are excellent moral & legal arguments, the ACTIONS of the world community, esp. in the UN, have long proven that they simply don't care. So explain to me, which part of Israel's history or the Holocaust should I focus on in my learning — per your suggestion?

  14. If the above article is true, then the Jews who voted for him twice, should slap themselves silly for electing him. Over 80% of the Jewish community voted for him and are Dems. How is all this hope and change working for you. Personally, I don't give a crap.
