Obama in West Bank: Palestinians 'deserve a state of their own'
nbcnews.com ^ | March 21. 2013 | John Newland

Posted on 03/21/2013 5:28:31 AM PDT by John W

President Barack Obama spoke critically of Israeli settlement activity and reaffirmed his commitment to the creation of "an independent and sovereign state of Palestine" in a Thursday news conference in the West Bank.

"We cannot give up on the search for peace, no matter how hard it is. ... Too much is at stake," the president said at the joint news conference with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on the second day of his first official trip to Israel. Advertise | AdChoices

Obama reaffirmed the "difficult" goal of a two-state solution, adding that Israel's program of settlements was unhelpful and did not "advance the cause of peace."

deserve?

no people on earth are LESS deserving of a land of their own than the made up Palestinian people, who are actually nothing but a bunch of jew hating terrorists.

Mr. President - barbarians and terrorists devoted to Israel’s destruction don’t deserve a state, period.

That’s where you and I part company. The Arabs have proven they can’t even maintain a responsible autonomous regime. To give them a sovereign state would put Israel in grave danger.

Its a notion that deserves to be flatly rejected out of hand!

What irony that Obama was saying this as Palistinian rockets were being fired on Israel from Gaza.

Obama doesn’t believe exporting peace, but yet he says that Palestine should be given that chance. They don’t want peace. They like conflict and as long as there’s conflict in or around Israel, Israel will be left with no choice but to defend herself.

They have a nation. It is Jordan. Whence they came.

The term Palastenian is a total fabrication. There has never been a nation called Palestine. More Muslim lies.

They are people that create such problems that even Jordan wants no part of them.

I am amazed at the number of Google search terms concerning the temple mount that give a google return that you are not allowed to read that site. This is a subject that we are evidently “not allowed” to research.

You know what? They had one. Then Yasir ara Fat and his intifada messed it up. If the Palis are upset they have no one to blame but themselves.

David Webb on his program last night said that “Isn’t one of the conditions of a two-state solution supposed to be that each state recognizes the other states right to exist?”

PA depicts a world without Israel

The Palestinian Authority makes no attempt to educate its people towards peace and coexistence with Israel. On the contrary, from every possible platform it repeatedly rejects Israel’s right to exist, presents the conflict as a religious battle for Islam, depicts the establishment of Israel as an act of imperialism, and perpetuates a picture of the Middle East, both verbally and visually, in which Israel does not exist at all. Israel’s destruction is said to be both inevitable and a Palestinian obligation.

The following description of Israel’s founding in a Palestinian schoolbook represents the dominant dogma about Israel:

“Palestine’s war ended with a catastrophe that is unprecedented in history, when the Zionist gangs stole Palestine … and established the State of Israel.”
[Arabic Language, Analysis, Literature and Criticism, grade 12, p. 104]

This official PA map of “Palestine” was broadcast on PA TV in September 2011. The map includes both the PA areas and all of Israel (excluding the Golan Heights) wrapped in the Palestinian flag - a symbol of Palestinian sovereignty over the whole area - and has a key through it, symbolizing ownership. Similar maps presenting all of Israel as “Palestine” appear in Palestinian schoolbooks and are shown regularly on PA TV.

Remember Newt who was asked about Palastine and he said to the arab guy during the debates that there is no palastine and never has been

If they want their own country then tell Jordan and other countries to give up a few acres .

hat amazes me is how Jews in this country are so different to Jews in Israel and how Jews over ehre for the most part couldn;t careless and seem more interested pushing a homosexual agenda than caring for Israel even though they will deny that

Hey, Barry, the Israelis WON the 1967 War. They should have never ceded an inch of ground to the Palis, but did, in the interest of “peace”. It got them nothing.

You are not dealing with the Republican leadership oer there, but rather, people who will fight to keep their country.

Lets just say for purposees of discussion that the Palis get a state of their own.

Will that end the violence?

No. The state will be a springboard for them to launch more attacks.
And should they manage to kill Israel would.then peace begin.

No. They will find a new target

Transjordan, today called the nation of Jordan, was specifically created so that the Palestinians would have their own state. So what Obama is calling for, is that pieces of Israel should be cut off to make the Palestinians a second and third state.

Though, considerable fault in this lies with the Israelis, for refusing to, after four wars and other unpleasantnesses, expel those individuals allied with their enemies from Israel. That is, the Gazans should have long ago become Egyptians, and the West Bank Paleos, Jordanians.

The easiest, and now most humane thing that could be done would still be for Israel to expel them. And after a decade or two of pissing and moaning, the world would be very content to go back to ignoring the region.

Did the Palis not lose a war? Why do they DESERVE a re-do? What has gone into this judgement of what they “deserve”? They can live peacefully where they are- or go someplace else. Does Obama believe he is God?

Well like it or not, most of the Jordanians ARE Palastenian, so it would be natural to declare Jordan be the REAL Palistine.

Rockets Hit Israel as Obama Meets Palestinians
Thursday, March 21, 2013 06:26 AM

By: JULIE PACE

RAMALLAH, West Bank — President Barack Obama is meeting Palestinian officials on the second day of his Mideast tour to emphasize the importance of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a message underscored Thursday when Palestinian militants in Gaza launched rockets into southern Israel.

That calm has not extended to Gaza, which is run by the militant Islamic Hamas movement. As Obama began his program Thursday, Israeli police said militants in Gaza had fired two rockets at the southern town of Sderot.

One of the rockets exploded in the courtyard of a house in Sderot early in the morning, causing damage but no injuries, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. The other landed in an open field. Sirens wailed in Sderot shortly after the 7 a.m. rocket attack, forcing residents on their way to work or school to run to bomb shelters.

You are absolutely correct. Jordan was created as a home for the Palestinians. The Arab countries, especially the Saudi’s, have been putting all kinds of monkeywrenches in that, to preserve a perpetual jab at Israel.

OK does this fall into the category or within 24 hours there will be a “weather event” after a President disses Israel...
http://jerrybishop.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/israel-gods-blessing-on-america-and-natural-disasters/
this is just some of them from the article I linked
October 30, 1991: President George Bush opens the Madrid Conference with an initiative for a Middle East peace plan involving Israel’s land.

On the same day, an extremely rare storm forms off the coast of Nova Scotia. (It was eventually tagged “The Perfect Storm,” and a book and movie were made about it.)

Record-setting 100-foot waves form at sea and pound the New England Coast, even causing heavy damage to President Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

August 23, 1992: The Madrid Conference moves to Washington D.C. and the peace talks resume, lasting four days. On that same day, Hurricane Andrew — the worst natural disaster ever to hit America — produces an estimated $30 billion in damage and leaves 180,000 homeless in Florida.

January 16, 1994: President Clinton meets with Syria’s President Hafez el-Assad in Geneva. They talk about a peace agreement with Israel that includes giving up the Golan Heights.

Less than 24 hours later, a powerful 6.9 earthquake rocks Southern California.

This quake, centered in Northridge, is the second most destructive natural disaster to hit the United States, behind Hurricane Andrew.

March 1 to April 1997: The combination of PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat touring America, and Clinton rebuking Israel for not giving away her land for peace, coincide with some of the worst tornadoes and flooding in US history.

On the very day Arafat lands in America, powerful tornadoes devastate huge sections of the nation, ripping across Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky and Tennessee.

Arafat’s American tour also coincides with the storms in the Dakotas, which result in the worst flooding of this century, in addition to weeks of major storms throughout the Midwest.

The Jews settled on a land no one wanted. The a-rabs have way more land than tiny Israel. If you fly into Israel you can see the difference from the air. Israel is lush and green, the rest is barren sand dunes.
