Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is asking U.S. President-elect Barack Obama to implement an Arab peace plan as soon as he enters office.WHY SHOULDN'T ISRAEL WITHS DRAW - AFTER ALL... LOOK AT HOW WELL THE UNCONDITIONAL WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA WORKED OUT:
Abbas spoke at an economic conference in the northern West Bank town of Nablus on Saturday.
It is the first time the Palestinian President has asked Obama to adopt the Arab peace plan.
The plan is referred to as the "Arab Initiative." It calls on Israel to withdraw from the West Bank, Gaza and parts of Jerusalem. It also calls on Israel to settle the issue of millions of Palestinian refugees.
In return, Arab and Muslim states will recognize Israel and have full relations.
Qassam attacks continue despite Hamas reassurances that Gaza groups committed to lull; no injuries reported in barrage fired at southern Israel Saturday evening; meanwhile, several Palestinians reportedly hurt by IDF fireOBAMA MAY HAVE ALREADY TOLD ABBAS HE WILL PUSH FOR ISRAEL TO ACCEPT THE SAUDI PLAN.
South under fire: Three Qassam rockets were fired Saturday from the northern Gaza Strip at southern Israeli communities. Earlier, a rocket landed in an open area near Ashkelon. No casualties or damages were reported in the attacks.
I EXPECT THIS TO HAPPEN. I EXPECT OBAMA TO SQUEEZE ISRAEL - PUT MORE PRESSURE ON THEM THAN THE ARABS.
MAIN REASON: OBAMA HAS BEEN AN ANTI-ZIONIST HIS WHOLE ADULT LIFE AND HE HAS SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH ANTI-ZIONISTS SINCE THE DAY HE ANNOUNCED. LIKE ZBIG. AND NOW SCOWCROFT. BOTH ARE ANTI-SEMITES.
IN A WASH-POST OP-ED, ZBIG AND BRENT SCOWCROFT CALLED FOR ISRAEL TO WITHDRAW WHICH MADE NO DEMANDS ON ARABS. ZERO. THEY ALSO CALLED FOR INTERNATIONAL MILITARY FORCES TO GUARD THE BORDERS AND TRAIN THE PALESTINIAN ARABS. (EERILY TOO CLOSE TO BIBLICAL PREDICTIONS OF THE END-TIME!)
*******UPDATE: GENERAL JIM JONES (RET) - THE LEADING CANDIDATE FOR NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR - ALSO FAVORS INSERTING NATO TROOPS IN THE WEST BANK! MORE:
Jones, a former NATO commander, proposed a NATO-based international force that would later transfer control to the Palestinians.THESE PEOPLE THINK ISRAEL AND THE ISRAEL LOBBY" ARE THE REAL ONLY OBSTACLES TO PEACE: "IF ONLY THE ISRAELIS - READ JOOOOOOZE - WOULD MAKE REASONABLE CONCESSIONS"...
Israeli officials say that such a force sounds wonderful, but in practice cannot provide the intelligence necessary to prevent terror.
THIS IS APPEASEMENT: IN THE HOPE THEY WILL EAT US LAST, THE OBAMA-LEFT WANTS TO FEED ISRAEL TO THE ENEMY FIRST.
OBAMA WILL DEFINITELY TRY THIS; HERE'S WHY:
- MOST ANALYSTS HAVE PREDICTED THAT OBAMA WILL NOT DO MUCH ON THE FOREIGN POLICY FRONT AND BE FOCUSED ON DOMESTIC/ECONOMIC ISSUES.
- I DISAGREE: THE POTUS HAS INCREDIBLE LATITUDE AND POWER ON THE FOREIGN POLICY FRONT AND OBAMA WILL USE IT.
- OBAMA WILL TRY TO GET A DEAL FOR LIVNI BEFORE THE ELECTION IN ISRAEL.
- IF THAT FAILS, AND IF THERE IS NO DEAL BEFORE BIBI IS REELECTED, THEN OBAMA WILL PROBABLY BE THE FIRST POTUS TO HAVE HIS UN AMBASSADOR SIDE WITH THE ARABS AND AGAINST BIBI/ISRAEL IN THE UNSCR.
NOTE: LOOK AT THE TWO PICTURES OF OBAMA IN ISRAEL:
OBAMA IS AT EASE WITH LIVNI - WHO LOST HER BID TO BECOME PM BECAUSE SHE WOULDN'T PROMISE THE SHAS PARTY SHE WOULD NOT TO PARTITION JERUSALEM.
OBAMA IS GLASSY-EYED WITH THE DISAPPOINTED LOOKING NETANYAHU.
THESE PICTURES SAY EVERYTHING...
