Pipes May Be Right, But He is Wrong to Pour Cold Water on Wikileaks

Reader comment on item: Pouring Cold Water on WikiLeaks

Pres. Obama's concerted efforts to be THE ONE to bring to fruition an Israel-Palestinian peace deal into existence might be motivated by a sincere effort to do the right thing.

He however, has been operating under his blinkered false premises that the unresolved Israel-Palestinian conflict is due to the issue of Israeli settlements and that it is that unresolved conflict that most endangers Mid East stability, contributes to Muslim terrorism and threatens American/Western interests in the region and the world. Operating on that premise, he has almost exclusively pressured Israel to make concessions in order for him to be THE ONE to make that so far elusive state of peace a reality.

Pres. Obama's false premises and words, policies and deeds that flow from that, far more speak to his motives being to satiate his ravenous egotistical appetite to establish his legacy for all time as being THE ONE AND ONLY greatest American President and world leader who accomplished what for mere mortal leaders has been until now impossible.

The Wikileak revelations clearly show that the Saudis and other Arab nations could care less about the Palestinians and that they not only fear losing power to Iran, but want America to attack and defeat Iran so that their power and hegemony in the region will not be compromised. These revelations also show that it is not because of Israel that there is no peace and stability is threatened in the Middle East, but because of the Palestinians/Arabs there is no stability and there is no peace between Israel, Palestinians and other Arab nations.

What Obama has been trying to do to Israel to force her to concede whatever it takes to get the Palestinians to sign on the dotted line of a piece of peace paper, existentially threatens Israel.

The Wikileaks revelations should be used to pound and shatter the American/Western deliberately conceived false premises in this regard that are so inimical to Israel's best interests and force everyone, especially Obama to admit and deal with the the realities that are right in front of them.
