Israel’s Netenyahu To Obama– Shove It!

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will announce his refusal to go along with requests from President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for an end to any form of housing construction in West Bank settlements. As a sop to the Obama administration he may pursue destruction of some outlying illegal settlements. According to the Israel Peace Now group, about 44% of West Bank settlements were built on Palestinian owned land, but Netanyahu feels committed to the principle of unlimited construction regardless of American demands or the need to end these activities in order to secure peace with Palestinian leaders.
Netanyahu will argue there will be no further appropriation of Palestinian land and all growth will be within the boundaries of existing settlements.

Hillary Clinton and President Obama understand that no Palestinian government can accept the present status quo in which Israel has seized land from Palestinians and is now refusing to acknowledge the right of Palestinians to have a government in east Jerusalem. Both sides have made clear their position, the fight has begun, who will win the battle?

    To the people of the ruling class of the U.S. , it is now high time that you get it through those thick heads of yours, that have been filled with the nonsense of AIPAC, and other organizations run by the people of the government of Israel;
    Stop the funding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We now know the true ideas of Israel and the means by which they will be carried out. Should someone ask me, yes I am Jewish, and I do not agree with the government of Israel’s plans to expand the illegal settlement building and the way in which they are treating their own citizens.

    The Obama administration is attempting to work for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. The Israel lobby has lost its power, even major Jewish groups are supporting Obama.

    Obama must not back down after ISRAEL slaps AMERICA in the face

    Whether Netanyahu was merely stupid or, more likely, arrogantly malicious in order to assert his claimed superiority over America – is not the point. President Obama cannot afford to blink again and allow Israeli extremists to dictate US foreign policy.
    There is now the dangerous possibility of a third intifada, provoked by the Netanyahu cohorts, that could spark a nuclear war in the Middle East.
    Time for Netanyahu to leave the stage, and for Obama to assert his authority over this tiny nation that thinks it can rule the world.
