    Bibi Spoke Truth To Power

    Bibi Spoke Truth To Power

    The disloyalty card is being played by Jeffrey Goldberg (who took great offense to Benjamin Netanyahu’s perceived disrespect towards “my President”), Glenn Greenwald (the evil and disloyal Israel Lobby, again) and Andrew Sullivan (the Israeli-influenced media and the crazy Christians, again).

    Yet these critics who are so quick to run for the disloyalty card ignore the reality that the reaction to Obama’s Middle East speech on Thursday was so swift, overwhelming and bipartisan because support for Israel in the United States has almost never been stronger and is trending towards Israel even more so:

    Maybe, just maybe, the vast majority of Americans are not buying into the “Arab Spring” fantasy, and worry that our President is walking us — I repeat, us — down a path we do not want to go. 

    Maybe, just maybe, we were thrilled to see someone speak truth to power, because our media and intelligentsia will not do it.

    @Andrew – are you GG's sock puppet? He's been known to do that. GG posted the Onion piece as an update to his post. At least be original.

    It may also be that the US public is not buying the total canard that Islam is a religion of peace.

    A lot of people are getting tired of being accused of being racist or 'Islamophobic' every time some Muslim tries to kill a bunch of non-muslims.

    Frankly, the Palestinians haven't done anything that should change our sympathies. Add to that, the ability, or lack of ability, by Palestinian negotiators over the years, and you are left with a picture that paints the Palestinians as the "world's worst negotiators" as they have passed on multiple occasions deals that are probably as far as they could ever hope to achieve.
    Clearly, negotiations are not an option, only winning.

    Here's the offensive part–verbatim–of Obama's Thursday State Department speech, on which he doubled down during his Sunday AIPAC speech:

    “The United States believes that negotiations should result in two states, with permanent Palestinian borders with Israel, Jordan, and Egypt, and permanent Israeli borders with Palestine. 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.”

    Note the emphatic concern over the Palestinian "people," and their right to a "sovereign" "contiguous" (read continuous, unbroken) "state." Note also the absence of concern for the Israeli people and their right to a "sovereign" "contiguous" state.

    Here are several analyses of why Obama's words are so radical/unacceptable, including one from Gene Simmons!
