Israeli settlements Obama Administration obamablunders


This of course was all predicted, here, at the Tundra Tabloids, that the Obama administration’s highly flawed foray into the peace making business from the git-go, was ill planned, strewn with false notions and highly anti-Israel for anything positive to come of it. So, yes, the TT is saying, I told you so.

Demanding that the Israelis to stop building within its suburbs of J’Lem, as well as in other big communities inside Judea and Samaria, was boneheaded from the very beginning. Barry Rubin over at Rubin Reports says Obama’s policies directed towards Israel over the last six months, made no sense whatsoever. The Tundra Tabloids fully agrees. KGS

U.S. Drops Bid to Sway Israel on Settlements

WASHINGTON — After three weeks of fruitless haggling with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Obama administration has given up its effort to persuade the Israeli government to freeze construction of Jewish settlements for 90 days, a senior administration official said Tuesday.

The decision leaves Middle East peace talks in flux, with the Palestinians refusing to resume direct negotiations absent a moratorium, and the United States struggling to find another formula to bring them back to the table. It is another setback in what has proved to be a star-crossed campaign by President Obama.

The administration decided to pull the plug, officials said, because it concluded that even if Mr. Netanyahu persuaded his cabinet to accept a freeze — which he had not yet been able to do — the 90-day negotiating period would not have produced the progress on core issues that the United States originally had sought.

“We made a strong effort, and everyone tried in good faith to resume direct negotiations in a way that would be meaningful and sustainable,” said a senior American official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the administration’s internal deliberations, which are continuing. “But the extension wasn’t actually going to do that.”

Administration officials did not offer a Plan B to revive the talks, and analysts said it was not clear that the administration had one, beyond a general commitment to keep talking to the Israelis and Palestinians about the major issues that divide them: borders, security and the status of Jerusalem, among others.

  1. I for one, will not forget the humiliation that this Administration put Israel and Jews everywhere through. In the end, this Administration had to admit what we all knew for a fact NINE MONTHS AGO: a settlement freeze by Israel does not change Arab policy toward Israel.

    The Arab League of Nations maintain a manifest policy of anti-Semitism. This is the single policy prolonging war between the Arabs (Palestinian and otherwise) and Israel. Until the Administration confronts that, The United States is doing more harm than good.

  2. why wouldnt you want them to build and keep the settlements? if you dont have a reason for them not to have the settlements, then let them keep and build the settlements. if you have a reason why they shuldnt, it still depends what that reason is if to let them continue makeing settlements or not. boarders-No documentation, fees, health screens, criminal checks, identification note, or tests, for people to immigrate, cross or to stay in boarders. No citizenship, papers, passport, green card, visa, or license. can leave the fence up, but let people jump the fence, or tear fence down.

  3. let people be outside with guns. right for tools that could be used(but arnt currently being used as) a wepon to pass thru boarders. Don’t physically deny physically peaceful people access to outside, roads, parks, sidewalks, fields, land,
    Don’t hurt, handcuff, arrest, lockup, put a tracking device on, direct weapons or point guns at peaceful people. don’t physically force an x-assailant that caused minor injury/illness. No penalizing peaceful x-assailants with death, abuse, or neglect of survival needs.
