Now, this might just sound too boring for some members on here because they want everything to have a fantastical imaginary story where someone is plotting to do this and that they eventually have control over all. The reason behind these latest developments might not be so interesting but is still a conspiracy in itself.


‘Kiss of death’ for Palestine

It has nothing to do with Hamas… nothing to do with rocket attacks in Southern Israel….. the truth is, it’s all about scoring points (and votes) for the upcoming Israeli election…. not a thing more, not a thing less.

Gaza War Role Is Political Lift for Ex-Premier

By Ethan Bronner




JERUSALEM — A few weeks ago, Defense Minister Ehud Barak was considered a dead man walking in Israeli politics. Members of his Labor Party were plotting to replace him after elections on Feb. 10, if not before. Under his leadership, the storied party of David Ben-Gurion and Golda Meir had sunk so low in the polls that there was serious talk it might disappear.

There is, however, much irony — and uncertainty — in this political upheaval. Although Mr. Barak has gained from the war, he was opposed to it for far longer than any of the other top leaders and has been the most eager of them for a cease-fire since it began. Many abroad recall Mr. Barak as the prime minister who in 2000 went further than any Israeli leader in peace offers to the Palestinians, only to see the deal fail and explode in a violent Palestinian uprising that drove him from power.

I knew it I knew it I knew it.

"The real reason..." is always anti-israeli.

Not because they knew Obama is not a friend of Israel and they will be alone when he takes office so they had to act now.

Not 5000 rockets being fired since 2005 and 17 suicide bombers killing, maiming and destroying.

Not Hamas refusing to recognize the right of Israel to even exist and taking support from Iran whose leader says Israel is a "rotting corpse" and will "Burn in fire" and "will be pushed in the sea." Or that little denying the Holocaust.

Nope. It's all about Israeli elections and the petty needs of a politician.

Obama has not 100% stated whether or not he supports Israel. He does not currently support either side because of the violence they have both caused.

Obama hasnt yet stated his stance on Israel but i think the fact that he hasnt said anything at all regarding recent events speaks for itself.

i don't believe it specifically says anything.
any foreign government involved in (or involving itself in) the israel/palestine situation should communicate with both sides. it's called 'diplomacy' in my opinion.

Sorry about that.


Yeah thats true, if this all is just for political votes than its worse than we ever imagined, why go that far? I cant believe people would take lives for the sake of votes. I know im looking at it with a simple view, but its all there in black and white.

Op your post doesn't make clear that Ehud Barak is commander in chief of Operation Cast Lead?
