Obama tells “Palestinians” to cut out the genocidal jihadist rhetoric and rocket attacks — no, wait…

Actually, he pretended that they have already done that. He spent his time hectoring the only side that really wants peace as if it were the only obstacle to that peace, and called upon it to take steps that would seriously imperil its survival. “Obama tells Israel: ‘Peace is the only path to true security,'” by Stephanie Condon for CBS News, March 21:

Speaking before a lively and receptive crowd of 600 Israeli students, President Obama today urged the youth of Israel to accept “the realization of an independent and viable Palestine.” A two-state solution, the president suggested, is the only viable path forward for Israel, given the political and technological changes underway.

“Peace is necessary. I believe that,” Mr. Obama said, speaking at the Jerusalem International Convention Center on his second day in Israel. “I believe that peace is the only path to true security. You have the opportunity to be the generation that permanently secures the Zionist dream, or you can face a growing challenge to its future.”

Yes, creating a new base for jihad attacks against Israel will certainly secure the Zionist dream.

With the fast-moving developments in the Middle East sparked by the Arab Spring and the spread of democratizing technology, Mr. Obama said, “This is precisely the time to respond to the wave of revolution with a resolve and commitment for peace.”

That “wave of revolution” brought to power governments that are unanimously and indefatigably hostile to Israel. So apparently Obama wants Israel to respond to this new threat not by preparing itself for a war that appears to be inevitable, but by pretending that the developments are positive and doing nothing to protect itself.

“Peace must be made among peoples, not just governments,” he continued. “No one step can change overnight what lies in the hearts and minds of millions…. But progress with the Palestinians is a powerful way to begin, while sidelining extremists who thrive on conflict and division.”

Mr. Obama noted that, given the strong support for Israel in the U.S., it would be easy for him to put aside the idea of pursuing a two-state solution. However, he added, “It is important to be open and honest, especially with your friends.”

“Given the demographics west of the Jordan River, the only way for Israel to endure and thrive as a Jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable Palestine,” Mr. Obama said, prompting cheers from the young audience.

Mr. Obama hailed Israel’s thriving economy and robust democracy, remarking on the robust debate that young Israelis engage in. He even found the silver lining when a heckler in the crowd began yelling in Hebrew for the release of Jonathan Pollard, a Jewish-American intelligence analyst who spied for Israel.

“This is part of the lively debate that we talked about — this is good,” he said, bringing the audience to give him a standing ovation. He joked, “I have to say we arranged for that because it actually made me at home. I wouldn’t feel comfortable if I didn’t have at least one heckler.”

Mr. Obama said that while he backs a two-state solution, “the only path to peace is through negotiation… That is why, despite the criticism we’ve received, the United States will oppose unilateral efforts to bypass negotiations through the United Nations.”

He also said that Israel cannot be expected to negotiate with anyone who is dedicated to its destruction. Still, he said, “Palestinians – including young people – have rejected violence as a means of achieving their aspirations. There’s an opportunity there — there’s a window.”

Have they really done that? Where? Who? How?

The president made an appeal for empathy, noting that before delivering his speech, he met with a group of young Palestinians, between the ages of 15 and 22.

“Talking to them, they weren’t that different from my daughters. They weren’t that different from your daughters or sons,” he said. “I honestly believe if any Israeli parent sat down with those kids, they’d say, ‘I want these kids to succeed.'”

It isn’t the Israelis who are teaching their children that their highest aspiration is to hate Israel and work for its destruction by killing Jews.

    ‘If Jews do not make peace, then we run the risk of war.’ Reminds me of Bush’s howler: ‘If we do not succeed, we run the risk of failure.’

    So, the only way to have peace is to have a militarized area in the West Bank ten times bigger than Gaza and a slim neck of land next to the Mediterranean so the incoming missiles will be right beside Tel Aviv and Jerusalem…riiiight.

    So everybody: Drink 8 glasses of water every day. And help the young Pally kids with TV programs that tell them to murder Jews and an Arab Mickey Mouse who talks about jihad and reconquering Jerusalem.

    It’s all the fault of those Jews who were authorized by the United States to create Israel…and then told to go twist in the wind.

    The only important truth is that the Palestinians are Muslim, merinated in the eternal hatred of Islam and the Koran and the Hadith, such as this:

    “The Jews will hide behind rocks and trees,
    and the rocks and trees will say:
    “O Muslim, O slave of Allah!
    There is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!'”
    — Hadith 6985

    Therefore Muslims will never seek to live at peace with the Jews, but will always seek anihilation of the Jews, until perhaps someday they renounce Islam, at which time they might live amongst civilized people again.
    Until that time they must live apart, very far apart, perhaps in North Africa, perhaps in some part of the newly ‘liberated’ Libya.
    If that’s what Obama means by a ‘two-state solution’, a Palestinian state in Libya, then we finally agree.

    Until then, Obama’s duplicitous talk of Israeli efforts to make peace have only one motive, to disarm Israel and to get them to drop their guard, in preparation for Islam’s war of anihilation against the Jews.

    I have never considered obummer to be of even average intelligence, just a less than shabbily education lout with an oversized ego. Lately I have been increasingly convinced that the buffoon in chief is either stupid to the point of being criminal, or he is nothing short of evil. No third option.

    What seemed to escape most commentators is, that Hussein Barak Obama twice told the “Palestinians” in Ramallah that they they have the aright to a “contiguous” “Palestinian State”.

    If he really meant what he said, it follows that in order to have that “contiguous” state it will not be possible for Israel to remain a contiguous state as in order to join the “West Bank” territories with Gaza Israel will have to cease to be a contiguous state.

    This point of view is consistent with Obama, born and originally brought up as a Muslim being only a fake Christian and and an enemy of Israel.

    Alternatively, he is simply an idiot who does not fully understand what he is talking about.

    Be my guest and choose the interpretation which you believe in most.

    Regardless of the interpretation he should not be the President of the USA, because on a multitude of issues, like aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood and indirectly also Al Qaida (as concerning Libya) and sabotaging the conclusion of the prosecution of the Nidal Malik Hassan of teh Fort Hood Massacre infamy as well as appointing Muslim supporters of Jihad to key positions in the USA security establishment his actions are treasonous to USA interests.

    The alternative is that he simply too dim witted to be the President of the USA.

    ”Speaking before a lively and receptive crowd of 600 Israeli students, …”

    I just can’t get my head around the utter stupidity and refusal to see what’s under their noses, that some people exhibit.

    Ah well, *students* …

    I wonder how ‘lively and receptive’ Netanyahu is to this idiocy.

    Nothing Obama can say or do will destroy Israel, but his every word and deed against Israel brings judgement upon his own head.
    Don’t pick fights with Israel, Obama because every time you do you’re picking fights with God, and when you pick a fight with God, you don’t win!

    @mortimer,

    ‘authorized by the United States to create Israel…

    I think Israel was created by UN mandate, not by the wishes of US alone.

    Correct me, if i’m wrong.

    When one recognizes no one as being greater than he/she sees him/herself, God does not enter the picture. When that one is a position of authority, he/she doesn’t foresee the true consequences of going against The God not recognized as to the decisions affecting those over whom they rule.
    In the Hebrew part of the Bible, there is a warning to the king of Tyre for just such a feeling of superiority. The king of Tyre considered himself a ‘god’ and had set himself up as such to his subjects. This same warning is applicable to the current situation.
    Those to whom the warning most applies do not usually listen.
    Ezekiel chapters 37 and 38 also apply.
