President Obama’s Message To Israel: Go To Hell

Posted on May 19 2011 11:27 pm

President Barack Obama wants Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders, with a few minor agreed upon swaps. He might as well have told the Jews living in Israel to pack up their belongings and leave or take their chances in the Hell that Hamas has waiting for them.

In his stab-Israel-in-the-back speech delivered on Thursday at the State Department, Obama declared:

The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states. The Palestinian people must have the right to govern themselves, and reach their potential, in a sovereign and contiguous state.

Obama waited towards the end of his speech on the Middle East and North Africa to throw our most reliable Mideast ally, and the region’s only true democracy, under the bus. His timing, on the eve of his meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu at the White House on Friday, could not have been more provocative.

Prime Minister Netanyahu did not waste any time in reacting to Obama’s gambit. He said that Israel would object to any withdrawal to “indefensible” borders, which the pre-1967 borders would most certainly be.

A future attack launched from the pre-1967 lines against Israel’s nine-mile-wide waist at its narrowest point could easily split the country in two.  Most of its national infrastructure (airports, industries, and inter-city highways) and population centers would be fully exposed to hostile fire from military forces deployed along the adjacent West Bank hill terrain, which would serve as an ideal platform of attack for Arab military forces. The Golan Heights would provide the Syrians with the same strategic military position to threaten Israeli civilians living below. Protecting against infiltration by Palestinian terrorists would be virtually impossible.

Obama’s inclusion of a demand for a “contiguous” Palestinian state encompassing Gaza and the West Bank would also have the effect of splitting Israel in two.

In short, the pre-1967 borders are not defensible because they do not provide Israel with sufficient buffer depth to enable Israel to protect itself against terrorist incursions, as well as to ensure a defeat of conventional military assaults if Israel is once again attacked.

To illustrate Israel’s profound vulnerabilities if it returned to the pre-1967 borders, here is a map of what those borders would look like:

Israel has returned Sinai to Egypt.  Under the terms of the peace treaty Israel signed with Egypt, there has been more than thirty years of relative peace between the two countries. However, that peace is now threatened as a result of the so-called Arab Spring Obama is so proud of, which swept Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak from power and left a vacuum that is likely to be filled by the Egyptian branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.

And what does the Muslim Brotherhood have in mind for Israel? A leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Muhammad Ghannem, provided the answer to the Arabic-language Iranian news network Al-Alam:

the people should be prepared for war against Israel

Israel withdrew from Gaza unilaterally in 2005, after entering into detailed security arrangements with the Palestinian Authority. When Hamas took over Gaza completely in 2007, the agreed upon security arrangements fell by the wayside as the terrorist organization launched thousands of rockets into populated areas of Israel, targeting and killing civilians including children.

At least President Obama recognized in his State Department speech that Hamas is not to be trusted. He criticized the ongoing rocket attacks and other terrorist acts by Hamas and its allies and the long-standing Palestinian culture of hate. Israelis, he said, have had to live

with the fear that their children could get blown up on a bus or by rockets fired at their homes, as well as the pain of knowing that other children in the region are taught to hate them

Obama even acknowledged that Hamas’s participation in the new Palestinian government

raises profound and legitimate questions for Israel

And he asked rhetorically

how can one negotiate with a party that has shown itself unwilling to recognize your right to exist

Yet, rather than first insist on the logical condition that such a terrorist party – namely, Hamas – be excluded from the Palestinian government and repudiated by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Obama told the Israelis to never mind and just turn the clock back to pre-1967.

Obama seeks to define in advance the Palestinian-Israeli borders, after which the “emotional issues” of Jerusalem and return of the Palestinian refugees would be negotiated. What kind of leverage would Israel have then, especially when the Obama administration has declared previously that East Jerusalem belongs to the Palestinians?

Obama is essentially telling Israel:  Give up all defensible borders first — then take your chances on Jerusalem and the Palestinians’ claim to a “right of return.”

All of these issues are inextricably linked. Why didn’t Obama insist, in his same speech telling the Israelis what they must do for “peace,” that the Palestinians must renounce once and for all their bogus claim for the right of millions of descendents of the original refugees to return to their so-called “homes” within Israel’s pre-1967 borders?

As Prime Minister Netanyahu’s statement, issued in response to Obama’s speech, pointed out:

Without a solution to the refugee issue by settling them outside of Israel, no territorial concessions will end the conflict.  Equally, the Palestinians, and not just the United States, must recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people, and any peace agreement with them must end all claims against Israel.

Whatever intentions Obama may have had in making his reckless proposal, his meddling where he does not belong will likely make the Jews’ historic and legitimate homeland a living Hell.

    I disagree; Obama did no such thing. He doesn't have the integrity and honesty to speak openly about how he feels about Israel. If he did speak his real thoughts I don't doubt a bit he would say just what you claim and worse. However he, like all lefties, is a sanctimonious, two-faced, lying POS and will never admit he just how much hates Israel and the United States.

    How the US people feel about the item is an internal matter for US residents.
    Just moments ago the Golan was placed into a status of a closed military area including the sector reserved for the burial of terrorists. One may suggest to the islamic mobs to thread very gingerly… if at all.
    Further. About 3000 new apartments are now authorized to be built in Pisgat Ze'ev and Har Chomah, suburbs of Jerusalem towards Judea and Samaria. This including 1500 approved today.
    There are other portends about to happen but those will be advanced at top speed but w/o much noise.
    We of course wish only good for the US but at this point we cannot afford to remain aloof about the intent of the ocupant of the White House.

    Good morning Joseph:

    There is no question now (as if there ever was before) as to which side of the battle Obama stands on. He is completely unambiguous on that point!

    I wrote an article on Obama Middle East policy using the transitive property; a=b b=c therefore a=c
    using in place of numbers Obama, Farrakhan and Reverend Wright.

    You can read it here: Obama, Jews, Israel and the transitive property

    WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Using Rev. Wright’s words…I must ask that question of Obamma. Who the hell asked you to tell Israel to move borders to pre-1967 status…


  5. May 20, 2011

    Hey O, "WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?" Using Rev. Wright's words…I must ask that question of Obamma. Who the hell asked you to tell Israel to move borders to pre-1967 status…

    Every country "took" their land from somebody. By Obama's logic, shouldn't we have to give most of the US back to the Indians? Except whichever tribe we "took" it from, they took from some other tribe, so…..

    I'd love to see Nentanyahu tell Obama to go F himself!

      When you say "every country," does that mean every white country outside of Europe?
      I suppose if Israel is right to take Palestinians land because the Israel's have bigger guns, then I suppose you deserve a punch in the face. No point in bothering with ethics, right?

    Actually, you're quoting the Rev. Wright's dearest friend, the Rev. Louis Farrakhan. The Rev. Wright's latest statements regarding Jews/Israel were, when asked about his relationship with President Obama about a year ago were as follows: When Wright was asked if he'd spoken to the president recently, his response was no, "And, it's because of them Jews." Later on in the day, Wright modified that statement a bit and stated that he'd not spoken to the president, and "It's because of them Zionists."

    Obama, in his way, did say to Israel, go to hell. Great piece Joseph! Going up on my Facebook. Must be read by all!

    I just listened to the Press Conference that occurred after the meeting of Obama and the PM of Israel. I must say that my admiration and respect of the PM has increased ten fold. He was so clear in his message, and in his humble way made his views extremely clear as to why he opposes Obama in his approach to a solution. As a result, my support of Israel has grown even stronger.

      Bibi just gave Obummer a little adult supervision, something that is lacking in the current administration.

  10. May 20, 2011

    Since it is settled and unalterable Israeli policy to retain all of the city of Jerusalem–a longtime non-negotiable position–withdrawal to the pre-1967 borders (with Jerusalem divided) as a precondition is prima facie unacceptable to Israel. Obama must know that, because his Middle East advisors do. So this speech was made with the full knowledge that it would be rejected. Now I guess you have to ask the question: Why? Who benefits from this?

    It seems likely that Obama is threatening that, unless Netanyahu caves, he will not veto the inevitable UNSC resolution declaring Israel is in illegal occupation of the West Bank–the preliminary step to a de facto UN authorization of war against Israel. I'm reminded of that beloved Ramadan carol, It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Jihad…

      Obama sees himself as the guardian angel of the "Arab Spring", and by offering up Israel on a silver platter, he thinks he'll regain his approval numbers with the Arab Street (as they've been sinking like a stone) and he can count on more of that "annonymous donor" cash for his up-coming re-election. Which he's going to need after he loses a big chunk of his Jewish supporters (though the anti-Zionist/anti-Israel

      The Jews are not the only people for whom Jerusalem is a sacred place. Do you care about other people or just your own?

  11. May 20, 2011

    Anything Obama says is pro Islam and Anti Israeli and Anti American when considered
    clearly. He is a bum and should be impeached as he is placing America in danger while
    sidling up to enemies that wish us great harm. We may not get and impeachment as so
    many leftists are in our government but it all must be remembered in 2012 or the great
    majority of us will be told to go back to England, Ireland, France, Norway,
    Spain, Germany, Portugal, Scotland, Whales, New Jersey…………………I think you get my
    drift……………..this guy is poison and we are in a destruct mode created by him and the
    imbiciles that voted him into office, things must change……………………………William

      William, how in hell is Obama pro-Islam? He's waging war in Pakistan and Afghanistan and so thousands of Muslims have been killed by the US military under his watch. Where do you get your information? Seriously?

      • March 25, 2012

        What he is doing is waging war to promote the Muslim Brotherhood in each and all
        Middle Eastern Nations and structuring our war to that end, Mubarak was a Muslim, as
        Gaddafi and Osama Bin Laden. If you catch my drift the man is never speaking to
        Christian persecution, Israeli victimization nor the spread of the Islamist Caliphate
        as a danger to non Muslims which it most certainly is considering the daily murder
        of Christians and Jews and as Obama supports hell you make the correct connection
        with pro-Islam…………………………………………………………William

    The “Palestinians” deserve absolutely nothing. Their grandfathers left Israel in 1948 at the behest of the Hitler-loving Islamic Imam in Jerusalem with the clear understanding that they were to get out of the way of their assumed-to-be-victorious Moslem armies from every nation surrounding Israel, and that these same “Palestinians” would return to rob, rape and murder any Jews left alive, taking everything for themselves which the Jews had built up over time in typical Islamic fashion as practiced over the centuries.
    Black September was the1970′s result of these same “Palestinians” who had tried to violently overthrow the Kingdom of Jordan. The “Palestinians” are playing a con game meant to successfully dupe the fools of the Western university crowd and their allied academic-led MSM lemmings, including the cynical use of the varied corrupt and murderous UN mechanisms. Luckily greater numbers of more civilized and humane Americans (outside of our lily-livered academic strongholds) see though this fake “Palestinian” front, this murderous “Palestinian” front.

    He has to comment on this because America gives billions of police and military equipment to Israel. Therefore he is morally obliged to make Israel accountable for how it uses those weapons. If he feels that those weapons have been used for aggressive expansion, it makes sense for him to express his belief that Israel's true borders should be based on 1967's borders, before they conquered neighbouring Arab territory
