Report: Obama's post-election agenda calls for
a Palestinian state or else

WASHINGTON — With the mid-term elections over, President Barack Obama is expected to resume heavy pressure on Israel, a report said.


The Center for Security Policy asserted that Obama would threaten U.S. relations with Israel after the Democrat Party's loss in congressional elections on Nov. 2. The Washington-based institute said Obama would press for the establishment of a Palestinian state over Israel's objections.

"Once the 2010 elections are behind him, it is a safe bet that President Obama will revert to form by once again exhibiting an unmistakable and ruthless determination to bend Israel to his will," the report, authored by Frank Gaffney, said.

Gaffney, a former Defense Department official, said Obama plans to increase pressure on Israel to unprecedented levels after his party's historic defeat in congressional elections. He said the president had eased pressure on Israel in response to Democrat candidates who feared a Jewish backlash.

"Unfortunately, what the president has in mind for Israel after the election will make his previous treatment of the Jewish state look like the good old days," the report, titled "Obama's Not-so-hidden Agenda," said on Oct. 26.

The report echoed previous assessments by the Israeli government and intelligence community of a crisis with the United States in the aftermath of the U.S. elections. The Israeli assessment envisioned that Obama would accelerate efforts to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank regardless of Israeli concerns.

"Worse yet, he will be able to take advantage of a vehicle for effecting the so-called 'two state solution,' no matter how strenuously Israel and its friends in Washington object," the report said. "The Palestinians will simply unilaterally declare themselves a state and ask for international recognition — and Mr. Obama will accede to that request."

During the spring of 2010, U.S.-Israel relations were said to have dropped to one of their lowest points in more than 50 years. Gaffney said Obama vilified Israel and forced it into territorial, political and other concessions to the Arabs.

"To be sure, ties between the United States and Israel — far and away America's most important and loyal friend in the Middle East — have improved lately from the nadir to which Mr. Obama plunged them since he took office," the report said. "That has nothing to do, however, with a change of heart or agenda on the part of the president and his administration."

Gaffney said Obama could provide U.S. recognition to any unilateral declaration of Palestinian independence. Another option was that the president abstain from a resolution in the United Nations Security Council that would recognize a Palestinian state.

"The truth is that, either way, Mr. Obama will have dealt Israel a potentially mortal blow," the report said. "Without control of the high ground and water aquifers of the West Bank, the Jewish state is simply indefensible and unsustainable."

The report said Obama could also agree to deploy U.S. forces in the West Bank in wake of a declaration of Palestinian independence. Gaffney warned that international forces, including Americans, would soon protect Israel's enemies in a policy similar to that of the UN peacekeeping mission in Lebanon.

"The same is certain to eventuate in the West Bank as paramilitary forces the United States has foolishly trained and equipped become a standing army and fall under the sway of Hamas," the report said.


Jim, I am an Israeli Jew. it is not about the level of criticism against Israel it is about the lack of criticism against other countries which really engaged in war crimes. Ask yourself how many times did you criticize Sudan for the genocide they commit in Darfur? How many times did you criticize Syria, Iran, or Saudi Arabia on the attitude towards Christian believers, woman, lesbian and gays? The criticism against Israel is meant to destroy Israel while the goal of “real” criticism is to make some one better

So, Jim, 'the Jews have a convenient label for anyone who levels legitimate criticism at their policies and influence'??? I'm sure you would be the first to insist that you're not generalizing. Am I right?

Soon, very soon, should Obama turn further against Israel, the U.S. will collapse for turning against the APPLE OF HIS EYE. God's foreign policy is very clear. "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." This has been seen with ancient Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, Spain in 1492. England lost her empire when she turned against Israel as did Nazi Germany. Next?

Oh, and by the way, the Jews have a convenient label for anyone who levels legitimate criticism at their policies and influence. They dismiss them by calling them "Anti-Semitic". Keeps folks from focusing on the truth. America first!

Jim      10:41 a.m. / Saturday, November 6, 2010

No one will be able to stand against Israel. Whoever attempts to do so will be discomfitted. This will be clearly seen by all very soon.

Nice try Jim the anti-Semite!

Obama is the first President in recent memory to stand up to Israel and the Jewish lobby. The Jewish-controlled media has been engaged in a "death by a thousand cuts" strategy to discredit Obama and diminish his political power. Our national power and resources have been hijacked to fight Israel's battles, battles which are not in the best interest of America.

I agree with Rev. Divine. Recommend reading The Mountains of Israel by Norma Parrish Archibold. Why should Israel give up land that was acquired after numerous attacks from the surounding neighbors to have the same results as Gaza?

There is already a State of Palestine; it's called Jordan! Why is there a need for two states of Palestine?
