    Bibi Makes The Case

    Bibi Makes The Case

    Some people are referring to this as a smackdown, but I don’t think so.  Netanyahu made the case which needs to be made, and has been made before (via Uncoverage):

    The key thing is, Netanyahu did not use the word “expect” because that would have caused mass OUTRAGE! and INDIGNATION! and would have required us to JUMP TO OBAMA’S DEFENSE!

    Instead, it was just Netanyahu making Israel’s case in a dignified and persuasive manner.

    Update:  Be sure to check out this video of a young Bibi.

    Daniels Flunks the Israel Test

    "Daniels is right that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has nothing to do with the Arab Spring. But he failed to note how Obama had tilted the diplomatic playing toward the Palestinians or the significance of the 1967 lines for efforts to re-partition Jerusalem (a point that Pawlenty highlighted). Nor did notice, as Bachmann and Romney did, the fact that this was clearly intended as an insult to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who arrives in the United States today for a visit.

    While Politico’s Ben Smith approvingly notes the bipartisan tone that Daniels seems to be adopting, it is somewhat unusual these days for someone who is thinking of running for president to fail to take an opportunity to demonstrate his support for Israel and to criticize the incumbent for taking a swipe at the Jewish state.

    One obvious conclusion to be drawn from this is that he really is a disciple of Indiana Senator Richard Lugar, one of the leading foreign policy “realists” in Washington, who has always been cool to Israel. Daniels was an aide to Lugar in his youth and while that wouldn’t necessarily mean that he had adopted the senator’s philosophy on all things, it is not an insignificant fact.

    Daniels has always been something of a cipher on foreign policy. As for his support for Israel, the sum total of proof provided by his friends of his affection for the Jewish state was one speech given at an ADL dinner. On the other side of the ledger, there was his recent appearance at a dinner given by the Arab-American Institute, a left-leaning anti-Israel group that honored him because the Indiana governor’s grandparents came from Syria. While his heritage means nothing in this discussion, his reaction to the president’s speech does tell us he doesn’t appear to have strong feelings about American support for the Jewish State."

    Bibi makes an even better case, of course not carried by the MSM:

    So using Obama's logic is he going to give back Texas to Mexico??? How about New Mexico and Arizona? The entire Southwest? Hey, should we give Cuba back to Spain? How about Puerto Rico? Philippines? The Virgin Islands? Guam? Maybe we need to give back the Louisiana Purchase to Spain as well since France took it from them? Heck, everybody in the US leave your homes, you are illegal settlers, Obama has declared all the land to be given back to the Indian tribes. Hawaii goes back to the Hawaiians. So that leaves us with Alaska…wait a minute, we bought that from the Russians who took that land from the Eskimos. So what does that leave us with???? Manhattan, the only place we bought from the original inhabitants.
