Barack Obama is to deliver a blunt warning to Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, that the era of the blank US cheque is over.

The President will use a meeting with Mr Netanyahu in Washington on Monday to tell him that from now on Israel must earn its privileged relationship with America.

Mr Obama will make clear that he will not allow his foreign policy objectives to be dictated by the Jewish state's interests, and that its leaders must resume working for peace with the Palestinians.

What disturbs me is to think Obama was bought and paid for by the 20 million dollars he received for his campaign by AIPAC.

If you get contributions form someone, you must return the kind gesture by supporting your contributor, even if your taxpayers paid for such a bribe...

What´s going on? Diversion, anyone?

What, nobody has seen this thread, yet?

I think it implies BIG news, especially concerning Iran, Russia and the possibility of averting WWIII.

But something just doésn´t sound right.

What´s your take?

I think Obama might actually be trying to do the right thing here.

But thats a lot of balls to juggle.
Maybe Obama is just as sick of the bloodshed and mindless spending as most other Americans are and is trying to end it in a nice but firm way for now.

Israel just seems like a spoilt child throwing a tantrum and Obama is giving a little tough love. Bout time imo.

I mean, where do you start?

Many within Israel's government are openly hostile to two key aspects of American policy on the Middle East: statehood for the Palestinians and engagement with Iran.

Two states might not be a bad idea, but something about it screams WW3 and "Revelations"

. Jewish voters, 78 per cent of whom voted for Mr Obama, are among the strongest supporters of the plan.

I Consider Israel to be a Jewish state and I as an American have no qualm with letting them deciding what is right within their own state.

What he has not done yet, is query the $3 billion in military aid which US taxpayers send Israel every year, although that could yet happen given the straitened times.

In the big scheme of "global chess" that isnt alot of money, but how much aid does a military program need?!?

and above all, not to launch preemptive air strikes against suspected nuclear enrichment facilities

Well, atleast someone is keeping an eye on things....

Finally someone sticking up to the Israelis...
It is right to say they are the spoiled child of the modern age, more so than the US is.
I grow tired of their rhetoric and annoying "WE WELL DESTROY YOU!" Speeches that come out of their government and press.

Warning: This poster does not believe in a jewish state.

The two state plan for Israel is possible but is gonna be far from peace...The palestinians are never gonna forgive them for occupying their land and Israel is gonna retaliate for sure...this sounds like disaster to me, Israel would'nt threaten anyone without knowing them to be a threat...their main problem is that their leadership is doin a bad job at convincing their american counter parts....

Smoke and mirrors.

This ties in with other threads made about mid July being the day.

Obama says, "play nice with Palestine Israel or we can't be friends"

Israel, "look USA, we are so keen to be your friends that we are willing to sign a peace treaty and have a 2 state system with Palestine"

I may be completely off the ball here, but if I am right, strap yourselves in because this will just be the begining of the ride.
