AND THIS NATION NEEDS RECOGNITION OF “ITS RIGHT TO EXIST”????? RSK
President Obama stood before the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday – in the same place he stood last year to make a bid for Palestinian statehood within the year – only this time, to plead his case against recognition of the Palestinian Authority from the U.N. Security Council.
The Obama Administration has come under intense scrutiny for what many have perceived as a lack of support for Israel. And recently, Republican presidential frontrunner, Gov. Rick Perry, blasted Obama for fostering a policy of “appeasement” in the Middle East, by demanding concessions from the Jewish state and empowering the Palestinian Authority to seek statehood.

US-Israel Ties: Conventional Wisdom Challenged http://www.israelhayom.com/site/newsletter_opinion.php?id=526 The suggestion that US-Israel relations are trending downward is a derivative of baseless conventional wisdom, as reflected in a recent study by Haim Malka, the Deputy Director of the Middle East Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. For example, conventional wisdom assumes that the recent turmoil, […]

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4125645,00.html The idea that creating a second Arab Palestinian state will solve the problem not only defies reality, it prevents other options and undermines Israel’s legitimate claims. Why not consider other options? Because anything less than a Palestinian state and full sovereignty negates the Arab resistance movement that has sought Israel’s destruction for the […]
