Israel on the chopping block
Obama: I told you I’d throw Israel under the bus
The Tundra Tabloids warned, warned and warned again about this very scenario. The US administration has now indicated to the world a pivotal change in policy in its relationship towards Israel concerning the conflict, in one of the most radical and immensely naive, anti-Israel speeches ever given by a US president.
Here is the video of John Bolton on the Glenn Beck show talking about the speech. KGS

Obama speaking at the UN: ” We continue to call on Palestinians to end incitement against Israel, and we continue to emphasize that America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.The time… (applause)… the time has come to relaunch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues. Security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees and Jerusalem. The goal is clear, two states living side by side in peace and security, a Jewish state of Israel with true security for all Israelis and a viable Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.Glenn Beck: Ok, “occupation that began in 1967”, that’s weird, it’s a war they won.John Bolton: Yeah. This is the most radical anti-Israel speech I can recall any president making. I just want to underline..Glenn Beck: I was just going to ask you that..John Bolton: Two phrases in what you’ve just heard, the president says that “America does not accept” and I’m quoting now, “the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” Not ‘new Israeli settlements’, “continued Israeli”, which, this is Mr.Wordsmith here, that calls into question in my mind all Israeli settlements.Then he says that “we want a Palestinian state that’s contiguous”, by the way, Gaza and the West Bank were never contiguous Palestinian areas before, “and that ends the occupation that began in 1967”. That means, I think, a return to the 67′ borders. Now, he doesn’t say that, but that’s certainly implicit in this statement.(Glenn Beck and John Bolton looking at a map of Israel and the disputed territories)Glenn Beck: Show me what this means[…]Well the idea is a road between Gaza Strip and the… (West Bank) it makes it contiguous because your going to make a Palestinian territory, but there’s one small problem with that, ..Glenn Beck: Well then Israel is not contiguous.John Bolton: Do you think that matters to the Palestinians? That is the kind of approach to an issue that is attempting to decide the outcome to the negotiations, before the negotiations, that’s why I think that the Israelis should be worried. He’s laid it out where he wants it to end up.[…]Glenn Beck: And Jerusalem:John Bolton: That would be, that would remain divided. That would not be the capital..Glenn Beck: We have never been for a divided Jerusalem.John Bolton: Well we have said that it’s a matter for the final negotiations. Our State Department over the years has resisted over the years any effort by the Israelis to say Jerusalem is a unified city and the capital of their country. The only country that I’m aware of where the United states disputes what the capital is.Glenn Beck: Did we sell out Israel today?John Bolton: I think it’s very close to it. As I say, I think it’s the most anti-Israel speech I can remember by an American president, and the important thing is, when you have the Palestinians in as a weak of a position as they are now, and to have Barack Obama be their lawyer in effect, puts them in a very strong bargaining place.[…]Glenn Beck: Bad day at the UN.John Bolton: I have to say that I was very shaken by this speech. I was disturbed by it, because it shows the president in the most naive mode, talking about how many problems he wants to solve through the United Nations. He did everything but say, “why can’t we all just get along”.And I think that the warm reception he received at the UN is a reflection that they know exactly what he’s saying. The other thing that struck me about this speech, was how personal it was to him, and how it was his presence, and the changes he’s made that have enhanced America’s security, whereas in fact we’ve seen just in recent days, a dramatic reduction in that security.A cancellation of the European Missile Defense sites, and an evident unwillingness to do what his own commanders think is necessary in Afghanistan. The signaling of potentially very large reductions in our nuclear arsenal. All of which is being done without a thought to the consequences.Glenn Beck: Jeremiah Wright said about a month ago that “the president couldn’t talk to him because the Jews are telling exactly what to do, who he can and cannot meet with”. I don’t think that the Jews were talking to him about this speech?John Bolton: Yeah. well this is part of a conspiracy theory that a lot of people on the Left have, that the Jews are running our foreign policy. Here we are, you’re a Mormon and I’m a Lutheran, not a very good one, talking about the security of Israel. We’re not a part of the Jewish conspiracy, but a lot of people think that that is something that Obama needs to overcome, and he said today in the speech, that America’s not doing a service when we couple our interests in Israel’s security, with a lack of insisting that Israel look out for the Palestinians’ rights. There’s never been a point where an American presidents haven’t done that.Glenn Beck: Do you think that a man can sit in a church with somebody who is as anti-Semitic as Jeremiah Wright is, and not come away with an anti-Semitic view?John Bolton: Well I think at a minimum, he was either asleep for twenty years, or we need an explanation of which we really didn’t get in the Jeremiah Wright speeches in the campaign.Glenn Beck: That kind of..we’re changing our policies towards Israel, at least it may not be anti-Semitic, but we’re changing almost a hundred percent..John Bolton: Dramatically, I think that we put Israel on the chopping block. This speech demonstrates to the Palestinians, they don’t have to make concessions, the president is going to take care of them.Glenn Beck: Do you think that we put ourselves on the chopping block as well? We have one piece of sound here…. “No one nation should, or can or should try to dominate”.Obama speaking at the UN: No one nation can, or should try to dominate another nation. No world order that elevates one nation or a group of people over another will succeed. No balance of power among nations will hold.”Glenn Beck: “No world order that elevates one nation or a group over another will succeed.” Well, we shouldn’t be domineering, but all nations are not created equal.John Bolton: The Liberal international economic order’s stability in the world as a whole since 1945, has rested on the United States. Rested on us and allies in many cases, rested on our nuclear deterrent, rested on our armed forces, rested on our determination to preserve freedom in the world. And I think what he just said was, our policy for the last sixty years has been wrong.Glenn Beck: And we are going for a one world order kind ofJohn Bolton: He’s made it very clear how much he wants to do through the UN, and an overwhelming percentage of our policy, and we’ll see more of it.
