Reader comment on item: One Cheer for Obama's Arab-Israeli Policy

Submitted by Lynn (United States), Sep 24, 2009 at 08:49

The talk goes round and round with each gently saying the other should be willing to do their part so the peace process can move forward. Like the Dr. Suess book of the man who travels north and the man who travels south, refusing to move aside so they can pass each other. In the case of Israel they step aside and the Muslims move in front again demanding Israel step aside. Again.

President Obama just said what he has been saying after President Bush said that Israel has the right to defend itself. Well you can exist their, you just can't build homes. In other words, don't unpack your bags.

What is new about this? He just reverted back to the Leftist thought that Israel has no place in the Middle East, but unfortuately they are there and the rest of the Middle East considers them unwanted visiters so Mr. Obama obliges.

One cheer? No, more like the cheerleaders watched the ball cross the end zone, head to the goal post, and bump into the pole, and back in the field of play. Mouths open ready to jump up and down, then oh, mouths close, back to the game.
