WND is reporting that Palestinean Authority officials who wished for their identities to be withheld told the online publication that the Obama administration has told the Palestinean Authority to be patient through the elections, and to not make trouble until Obama is re-elected. That would make perfect sense given the Obama administration’s abysmal record in supporting Israel, and its ceaseless devotion to restoring the 1967 borders that would leave Israel indefensible. It’s no secret that this administration has given support to the so-called “Arab Spring” in neighboring Egypt, and continues to down-play the Islamists’ takeover of that nation, while attacks upon Israel continue from all directions. WND’s Aaron Klein quotes the source as saying:
“We were asked by the (U.S.) administration not to make special demands or scandals during the elections,” said the official.
“After elections, the negotiations will be renewed on basis of the Clinton plan and Obama’s speech in Cairo of the 1967 borders,” the official said.
This is not surprising, after Obama took such a strong public relations hit in his press conference with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last year, and I suspect in a second term, the fangs would come out from behind the polite smiles, and the Obama administration will begin to pressure Israel very strongly. This remains one more reason that Barack Obama must be defeated in 2012. Left to carry out his foreign policy agenda, Israel would soon lay in ruins, or be overrun.
