From Obama Campaign Video, Philadelphia, April, 16, 2008:
Israel Must Retain Control of Jerusalem
"It is not an acceptable option for Jerusalem to be severed from Israel along the lines of the 1967 borders. That is not going to be an option.Eighteen month later, President Ø received applause at the UN when he condemned Israeli "occupation" and he now includes Jerusalem in future negotiations over "settlements." and 1967 borders.
BHØ, Sept. 23, 2009, "united nations" @ PRNY:
"... 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 has come -- the time has come to re-launch negotiations without preconditions that address the permanent status issues: security for Israelis and Palestinians, borders, refugees, and Jerusalem.
And 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, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people.Small piece of good news: He called it the "Jewish state of Israel." But since he has reversed himself so many times (see above), imho it's just more Ø lies....
Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.
Hat tip for interview of Ambassador Bolton to Freedom's Lighthouse.
"One specific thing, 2 broad themes I think he's put Israel on the chopping block, I don't think there's ever been a speech by an American President let alone at the United Nations that was so critical of Israel."POSTSCRIPT:
