Does President Obama ever threaten – I mean credibly threaten – any country in the world except Israel?
Excerpted from Ari YashAr\’s article at israelnationalnews.com:
US President Barack Obama gave an interview with Israeli media on Tuesday, in which he threatened that an Israeli refusal to renew peace talks with the Palestinian Authority (PA) will “make it hard” for the US to veto motions in the UN against Israel.
In an interview with Ilana Dayan for Channel 2\’s “Uvda” (Fact) TV show aired Tuesday night, Obama commented on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu\’s statements before elections in which he said that a Palestinian state won\’t be founded on his watch.
Obama noted that later Netanyahu distanced from the statement and “suggested that there is the possibility of a Palestinian state. But it has so many caveats, so many conditions, that it is not realistic to think that those conditions would be met anytime in the near future.”
Obama then issued a threat to Israel, referring to his remarks after the recent Israeli elections when he said America would have to reasses its policy towards Israel, and clarifying that at the time he was referring to something specific.
“If there are additional resolutions introduced in the United Nations…up until this point we have pushed away against European efforts for example, or other efforts. Because we\’ve said, the only way this gets resolved is if the two parties worked together,” he said, referring to European moves to unilaterally recognize the PA as a state.
The president said security aid to Israel won\’t cease, but warn that, “if in fact, there\’s no prospect of an actual peace-process, if nobody believes there\’s a peace process, then it becomes more difficult, to argue with those who are concerned about settlement construction, those who are concerned about the current situation, it\’s more difficult for me to say to them \’be patient! wait! Because we have a process here.\’ Because, all they need to do is to point to the statements that have been made saying there is no process.”
A question for you: has Barack Obama ever demanded that Palestinian Arabs do something – anything, no matter how small – to accommodate Israel? Why is this a one-way street?
And, far more importantly, has Barack Obama ever demanded that Palestinian Arabs renounce the hamas charter they all live under (it used to be just Gaza, but now, via its “unity agreement” with fatah, it includes the west bank as well)?
Allow me to show you a few key excerpts of that charter, as a reminder of the conditions President Obama has no problem at all expecting Israel to make peace under:
-Surat Al-Imran (III), verses 109-111 Israel will rise and will remain erect until Islam eliminates it as it had eliminated its predecessors. (first paragraph of the charter)
-The Islamic Resistance Movement is a distinct Palestinian Movement which owes its loyalty to Allah, derives from Islam its way of life and strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine. (beginning of Article 6)
-the Hamas has been looking forward to implement Allah\’s promise whatever time it might take. The prophet, prayer and peace be upon him, said: The time will not come until Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them); until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: O Muslim! there is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him! This will not apply to the Gharqad, which is a Jewish tree (cited by Bukhari and Muslim). (End of Article 7)
-Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model, the Qur\’an its Constitution, Jihad its path and death for the case of Allah its most sublime belief. (Article 8 in its entirety)
-[Peace] initiatives, the so-called peaceful solutions, and the international conferences to resolve the Palestinian problem, are all contrary to the beliefs of the Islamic Resistance Movement. For renouncing any part of Palestine means renouncing part of the religion; the nationalism of the Islamic Resistance Movement is part of its faith, the movement educates its members to adhere to its principles and to raise the banner of Allah over their homeland as they fight their Jihad (Beginning of Article 13)
As you can plainly see, the charter – which, again, all Palestinian Arabs now live under – says, in order of appearance, that:
-it will eliminate Israel (not the “occupied territories”, but Israel in its entirety,
-that, in accordance with the dictate of Allah, all Jews must be killed – not just Israelis, but all Jews,
-that jihad and death on Allah\’s behalf is its most sublime belief,
-and that it rejects any and all peaceful solutions as a blasphemy against Islam.
But does Barack Obama demand Palestinian Arabs renounce that charter as a condition of making peace? Nope.
President Obama, therefore, demands of Israel that it make peace with an entity which, specifically, in writing, is committed to taking over every inch of Israel, killing every Jew, both there and everywhere else, and which specifically rejects all peace solutions…including the one he is demanding that Israel facilitate.
Then he wonders why this is a problem for Mr. Netanyahu?
Can Barack Obama possibly be that obtuse? Can he possibly be that naive? Or there something else in play…something much uglier?
You tell me.
