I will go visit Israel, says Obama, but only if you elect me to a second term. Face it this is pure pandering at its best. He hasn't visited Israel since his campaign, but now claims he will in his second term. It's crap and we know it.
This is a man that has no love for Israel. Sure he goes through the motions and he puts on the platitudes but deep down inside he wants no part of Israel. Want proof? Look back to what he said in March of 2011. He firmly believes that there should be a Two state solution with Israel returning to the pre-1967 borders.
That would result in Israel giving up the Golan Heights, the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and the Sinai Peninsula, basically every strategically advantageous position that they attained during the 6 day war in 1967, a war they didn't start, but definitely did finish by the way.
These people are attacked everyday by multiple terrorist groups funded by the countries around them and we are suppose to support them giving back the very strategic grounds that the original attacks were staged from. There is a reason that Palestine, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt want this land back. Take the Golan heights for example, Damascus, the capital of Syria is basically visible from the mountain top. Of course they don't want Israel to have that.
"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," Obama said in the concluding section of his 45-minute address that looked at political and social change sweeping across the Middle East and North Africa.
"We believe 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," Obama continued.
That however is what happens when you attack a country and get your ass kicked. You lose things. What about all of the Jews that have settled in the West Bank? You know the settlements that our Israel loving President called illegitimate and illegal.
One of the things that was brought up was that Reagan never visited Israel, and Bush 43 only did in the last year of his second term. Something different about then and now. Neither one of them announced a visit a year out in the middle of re-election to try to garner up some support and votes. On top of that both Bush and Reagan were very much known to be very Israeli friendly. Reagan went out of his way to make sure that the IDF was taken care of and improved.
The biggest difference between them and Obama? Religious faith. Both Reagan and Bush were known to be religious Christians. Obama not so much. So when Obama calls for his two state solution and never even mentions how to handle Jerusalem don't be fooled.
This is a zero sum game ladies and gentlemen. There will never be peace in the middle east because the muslims will never allow a Jewish state to exist. If you give them an actual country they will continue to attack Israel and kill her citizens.
