Obama Pretends ’67 Borders Policy Triggered By Netanyahu Win
President Obama and the Obama Administration, using the opportunity presented by the reelection of Israeli Prime Minister to advance Obama’s apparent goal of destroying the Jewish state, are now saying that they might favor returning Israel to the suicidal pre-1967 borders. Pretending that this policy represents a shift because of Netanyahu’s statements decrying a Palestinian state that could become a military threat to Israel, Obama and his minions, according to the New York Times, would consider a UN Security Council resolution “embodying the principles of a two-state solution that would include Israel’s 1967 borders with Palestine and mutually agreed swaps of territory.”
To put it baldly, Obama is lying when he pretends that this is a new policy for him. As the Times itself reported on May 19, 2011, “A day before the arrival in Washington of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Mr. Obama declared that the prevailing borders before the 1967 Arab-Israeli war — adjusted to some degree to account for Israeli settlements in the West Bank — should be the basis of a deal. While the 1967 borders have long been viewed as the foundation for a peace agreement, Mr. Obama’s formula of land swaps to compensate for disputed territory created a new benchmark for a diplomatic solution.”
Obama’s desire to render Israel vulnerable to attack has been evident for some time, as he has denounced Netanyahu while coddling the nuclear aspirations of the terrorist Iranian regime. In retrospect, Obama’s hypocrisy is astounding; the same 2011 Times piece quoted him saying of Hamas, “How can one negotiate with a party that has shown itself unwilling to recognize your right to exist? In the weeks and months to come, Palestinian leaders will have to provide a credible answer to that question.”
Obama reportedly started secretly negotiating with Hamas at the beginning of 2014; months before Hamas went to war with Israel; as Fox News reported in June of 2014, during the war between Israel and Hamas, Obama openly said he would help act in negotiations between the two.
