Tag Archives: Obama
It’s about time the Obama administration answered Israel’s many rebukes to the vaunted peace process. The anonymous officials who blames the Israelis for the failure of talks — and Haaretz is saying it’s Martin Indyk — were serving as the president’s proxies.
“My very first political action, the first thing I ever did that involved an issue or a policy or politics, was a protest against apartheid,” Obama said last night in an eloquent eulogy to Nelson Mandela. And today as president he is responsible for giving billions of dollars in military aid to an Israeli regime that, by any reading of international law, is committing the Crime of Apartheid against the Palestinian people.
Letter to Obama: Don’t visit Nativity Church in Bethlehem, witness Separation Wall & refugee camps instead
Munther Isaac, director of the “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference” and faculty member at the Bethlehem Bible College has written an open letter to President Obama on his upcoming visit to Bethlehem.
Calls abound for another Gandhi — particularly when the subject is the Palestinian struggle for human rights and self-determination. Nicholas Kristof is just the latest. The main reason why my business partner and I called our latest venture the Palestinian … Continue reading
Former U.S. ambassador Charles O. Cecil’s letter to President Obama warns that a U.S. veto of Palestine’s application for U.N. membership will physically endanger American civilians: …if the United States vetoes the Palestinian request for statehood, we will damage our position in … Continue reading
Lately I have had conversations with two very-connected Jews that suggested to me the wheels are coming off the lobby’s cart, that the collapse of the talks due to Israel’s intransigence is upsetting American Jews, and some of the grown-ups … Continue reading
As the United States sends envoy George Mitchell to grasp at straws in hopes of restarting negotiations to create a Palestinian state after the Israeli government refused to curb settlement construction, Obama’s inability to entice Netanyahu’s coalition to comply with … Continue reading
Well because that’s where the power is. The permanent Establishment in D.C. has a neoconservative flavor right now, Obama has to truckle to those folks. (Ask me why later.) The Foundation for Defense of Democracies is a neoconservative shop. It … Continue reading
Robert Grenier, CIA’s chief of station in Islamabad, Pakistan, from 1999 to 2002 and director of the CIA’s counter-terrorism center, writes in disbelief at the current Obama administration strategy with the peace process (which he considers long dead). He comments … Continue reading
One may fairly conclude that Barack Obama’s over-hyped alleged efforts to “reach out” to the Arab and Muslim worlds ended yesterday when he responded, with a breathtaking lack of grace, to Qatar’s defeat of the United States (as well as … Continue reading
Another report that the Netanyahu-Barak government was fluttered to the point of defensive reaction by the prospect of Obama’s Cairo speech– Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Obama administration just two weeks after elected to Knesset that he supported the … Continue reading
That there is nothing new, or surprising, in these cables yet that we feel the need to parse through them is indicative of our frustration with the current state of affairs, leading us to believe this will be a worthwhile endeavor. Surely … Continue reading
From the always-entertaining Matt Bors, who works for many newspapers in the U.S. and lives in Portland. Thanks to Ali Gharib:
You’re fed up with Israel’s settlement policy. You’ve read about Obama’s offer to give Israel the moon for a three month moratorium that excludes East Jerusalem, and you’re furious. On the other hand, you might be someone who could care … Continue reading
Several recent news items have focused on Israel’s desire to confront Iran in Lebanon by taking on Iranian ally, Hizbollah. Yesterday Norman Finkelstein sent along this clip from the Asia Times, “Israel moves to counter Hezbollah,” which begins, “In the … Continue reading
Here’s an interesting if gag-producing piece by David Horovitz, the editor of the Jerusalem Post, on how the relationship between Israel and the U.S. has chilled. The piece seeks “bitterly, to underline” how the romance between the countries has ended. … Continue reading
Here’s another historical reenactment, this one courtesy of Blogging the Casbah:
Henry Siegman is cynical (at the National Interest) about Obama’s concessions to Netanyahu. Note Siegman’s blistering tone. Note the frank description of Palestinian rightlessness (emphasis mine). Siegman’s piece highlights the amazing fact that East Jerusalem is free for Netanyahu’s picking:
Roger Cohen praises Fayyad, and pushes the Obama-Clinton efforts. The settlement deal with Netanyahu is “positive but a detail.” (I’m not sure what he means by that.) His take on the Palestinian change of attitude reminds me a little of … Continue reading
By now, readers must know that I possess one of the hallmarks of weak judgment, I believe whatever the last person I talked to has told me; and in that spirit, let me pass along what a friend told me … Continue reading
Hitchens says US is ‘Shabbos goy’ to Israel, and latest deal will just further dispossess Palestinians
Christopher Hitchens has a great column at Slate describing the “national humiliation” of the United States by Israel in the latest deal that Netanyahu has extracted. Hitchens’s language is colorful, and is a reminder that generally when a writer writes … Continue reading
The New York Times is at it again. In an article about President Obama’s mild criticism of Israel’s plans to build more settlements in occupied Palestine, the newspaper said: Despite their efforts to build mutual trust, Mr. Obama and Mr. … Continue reading
More craziness from Israel– pressure on Obama without the usual lobby middlemen. Aluf Benn, an editor at Haaretz, echoes David Broder’s column saying that a U.S. attack on Iran would resurrect the economy and reelect Obama (Broder link here), then … Continue reading
