Donít second guess me again: Netanyahu to US
NY Post ^ | August 2, 2014 | 5:50am

Posted on 08/02/2014 4:13:49 AM PDT by Dave346

WASHINGTON — Following the quick collapse of the cease-fire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the White House not to force a truce with Palestinian militants on Israel.

Sources familiar with conversations between Netanyahu and senior U.S. officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, say the Israeli leader advised the Obama administration “not to ever second guess me again” on the matter. The officials also said Netanyahu said he should be “trusted” on the issue and about the unwillingness of Hamas to enter into and follow through on cease-fire talks.

An Israeli official said the Netanyahu government viewed both Hamas and Qatar as having violated the commitment given to the U.S. and the U.N. and that it expected the international community to take practical steps as part of a “strong and swift response,” especially regarding the return of the abducted soldier.

In a phone call with U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro, Netanyahu vented his anger, according to people familiar with the call.

Netanyahu told Shapiro the Obama administration was “not to ever second-guess me again” and that Washington should trust his judgment on how to deal with Hamas, according to the people. Netanyahu added that he now “expected” the U.S. and other countries to fully support Israel’s offensive in Gaza, according to those familiar with the call. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter by name.

They said Netanyahu made similar points to Kerry, who himself denounced the attack as “outrageous,” saying it was an affront to assurances to respect the cease-fire given to the United States and United Nations, which brokered the truce.

Kerry should (and probably does) know that 'cease fires' are a device used to reinforce troops when you are in bad shape, like calling for a 'time out' in a ball game that is going badly.

Some people can't be negotiated with. What is anyone going to say that will make Hamas quit being a terrorist organization?

——President Barack Obama demanded that those responsible release the soldier.——

The demand says volumes about Barack Obama.

He doesn’t understand the basic process is war. Combatants are killed and captured. The depth of misunderstanding of basic war and the continued futility of trying to reduce actual war to some sort of criminal activity indicates the depth of Obama’s naievete. War can not be resolved in a court room nor conference table. The single most important component of peace is spilled blood not pious utterances.

The 60’s pacifist is just plain lost when he enters the reality of world affairs

The return of a combatant can not rationally be be demanded by an irrelevant third party.

By not naming those responsible the demander admits not knowing who is responsible.

In the vernacular, every day Obama stands before a microphone and shows the world his ass. Pitiful.

The fact that an America-hating idiot such as John Kerry holds such an important US government position is an affront to decency and common sense.

The fact that the American electorate voted FOR this administration, twice, shows that too many Americans don't have either decency or common sense. Too many are more concerned about free abortions, free birth control, gay marriage, EBT, and the printed stimulus drunk stock market.

Will the American electorate wise up in time to save this country is anyone's guess.

Israel drops flyer's in areas they're going to bomb to warn Palestinians to get out of the area. Israel's NOT trying to ‘wipe out’ anyone.

If Israel wanted to ‘wipe them out’ they would all be gone. Israel's a first world ethical country and the Palestinians are third world losers. It would take nothing to 'wipe them out'.

That said, it appears the Palestinians reward kindness and tolerance with hatred and jealousy. They need to be moved out of Gaza and into a country that could be formed by Arab neighbors donating land to them.

PM Bibi Netanyahu needs to articulate Israel's new Hamas policy: unconditional surrender. Hamas will give up its arms and weapons. If not, Israel will utterly destroy the fighting abilities of Hamas (and any other Palestinian terrorist organizations).

No peace with the Palestinians is possible unless and until they are defeated in such a manner as to make denials impossible. Defeat has to be accompanied by a lot of slaughter because that is the only thing the barbaric minds of the Palestinians can understand. Unfortunately there will be collateral damage, but the Palestinians all voted for Hamas to lead them to martyrdom or victory over the hated Israelis.

IMHO there is no saving this country without wholesale repentance before God by the people. It is extremely unlikely to happen, but I hope for the best. Like you said, this is the leadership the people asked for.

The cultural Marxists have so divided and balkanized the people, there is almost no common ground between us and them. Those who celebrate the flesh and those who mortify the flesh.

The Arab neighbors could have solved this problems as you have proposed many years ago had that been their goal. . The only way any of them wants to solve the problem is to eradicate Israel.

It may be the only time I do so, but agree with Joan Rivers on her comment that if New Jersey were bombing New York, New York would take out New Jersey. We have no right yo tell Israel to just grin and bear it while that would not be our own policy.

The muslim in the White House further complicates the issue through his insulting treatment of Israel's prime minister and his miserable interfering secretary of state.

Israel is our only ally in the middle east and we have the privilege of supporting her right to exist.

Mr. Netanyahu knows what needs to be done and if the wimp in the white house doesn't have the testicular fortitude to support Israel's efforts to protect her citizens, the he should not hamper those efforts, but rather stand back and watch how a REAL leader handles the situation.

I stand with Israel!

I can’t prove it directly but it looks to me like Ben punctuated his spiel with about 1000 fresh 155mm rounds on the South end of Gaza. Up to this point the Israelis have worked only on northern and eastern Gaza. Hitting Rafah would be an up-grade. Each one of those 155 rounds should have a note on it: Stick this in your Ramadamadingdong.

You're right - it ‘shouldn't’ be necessary.

But Palestinians having their own country (far away from Israel) - and paid for by Arabs - has advantages. One is the world will find out exactly how much the Palestinian people REALLY mean to Arabs. I'm guessing ‘not much’ but I could be wrong. Iran coughs up a hunk of change to funnel money to Hamas - wouldn't they be better off if Palestinians had their own country - far far away from Israel? We could find out... actions speak louder than words...

What if Iranians use Palestinians as a way to express their hatred for Jews... and nothing more - that would be my guess. Again, I could be wrong. We would know if and when Iran refused to donate to the ‘land for Palestine’ movement...

TV is the main contributor. For 5-6 years all TV has done is shown propaganda negative towards Bush, republicans, and Christians in general. Is it any wonder that Americans vote Obama twice when all of a sudden you have most TV personalities, news, shows, talk shows, comedy, movies, and anything else on TV plugging for Obama like he is the savior of the world? Take away the media, and comedy-news shows, and the democrats lose.

Perhaps. We need some leadership with some courage, some organization, and a declaration.

There will be no wholesale repentance before God. That will never happen.

IMO, if their is no repentance, whatever comes of it will be of little benefit. Some tyrant will rise up. Ultimately, what can restrain tyranny except accountability to God? We have tyranny now because the majority of the people as well as the leadership do not fear God.
