If this is true, could Obama possibly sink any lower? Well, he could declare war against Israel. “Shock claim: Obama encouraged Palestinian ‘resistance’: Violence targeting Jews aimed at pressuring Israel into splitting capital,” by Aaron Klein for WorldNetDaily, March 31 (thanks to Phil):
JERUSALEM – The Obama administration has encouraged “resistance” by Palestinians to protest Israel’s presence in eastern Jerusalem, a senior Palestinian Authority official claimed to WND.
The senior PA official, speaking from Ramallah on condition of anonymity, said that in recent meetings with U.S. envoys to the region, the American diplomats supported and encouraged the concept of Palestinian protests to pressure Israel into evacuating eastern sections of Jerusalem.
The PA official’s claim follows a meeting in Jordan last week between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and George Mitchell, Obama’s envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. At a press conference immediately following the meeting, Abbas declared the Palestinian “right” to “resistance” against Israel.
The U.S. has come down hard on a decision by the Jerusalem municipality to approve 1,600 new homes in Ramat Shlomo, an already-existing Jewish community in eastern Jerusalem. The decision was made public during Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to the region earlier this month.
The Palestinians claim eastern Jerusalem as their future capital, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made clear he does not intend to give up the Jewish sections of the city.
Netanyahu has stated that he had not been aware of the decision to build in Ramat Shlomo and that the announcement was not timed to coincide with Biden’s visit.
Still, Obama senior adviser David Axelrod called the Ramat Shlomo announcement an “insult.” Other administration officials called the Jewish neighborhood expansion an impediment to Israeli-Palestinian negotiations….
