This May Be Out of Place But Important IMO

Reader comment on item: Assessing Obama's Mosque Speech on Islam

Submitted by Barry (United States), Mar 27, 2016 at 13:03

Why do I get the impression that Obama equates many troubles in the ME with the Israeli-Palestinian issue. I heard that just recently that Obama told a group, in his recent visit to Argentina, that there was no hope for an Israeli-Palestinian accord during the remainder of his administration. However, he went further and blamed Israel for the deadlock saying that the problem was that Israel was too successful economically and therefore had no incentive to reach an accord----it would be hard to make this stuff up if true. I believe that Obama is on a course to get even with Israel in general and Netanyahu in particular. He secretly supports the BDS movement, but more importantly he will, after the US election, support a UNSC resolution to declare a Palestinian state with delineated borders----this will tie the hands of any future president. Unless another UNSC member vetoes this resolution Israel will be in a world of hurt especially if the Abu Mazen regime themselves declare a state. Should this occur, a war, magnitudes above all others is in the future.
