WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel.

Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations. In a speech outlining U.S. policy in the Middle East and North Africa, Obama on Thursday sided with the Palestinians' opening position a day ahead of a visit to Washington by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is vehemently opposed to referring to the 1967 borders.

The palistenians wont be happy even with that. The MSM always paints Israel in the wrong, what they wont admit is they are all wrong in one way or another.

Tit for tat. Last time we visited, they built settlements against the agreement. Now, they're coming here and we just removed their borders.

Wow... I thought those "leaks" were false.

Is this a P.R stunt to show sympathy?
Will this be enforced?

This was expected, but it's HUGE.

One sure sign of the "End Times" is the U.S. turning its back on Israel.

May God help us all....

Wow I know some articles hinted towards this, and others said the exact opposite. This worries me, this is exactly what I've been thinking would be the best solution, and Israel will have none of it. IF I were in Gaza or Lebanon I would personally be stocking up on supplies.

Yes, but do you REALLY think that will quell the violence at all?....

Until the entire Jewish presense is removed from the region, there will always be violence IMO.

"Palestinians"... I feel sorry for them. Mainly because they are only seen a political bargaining tool for the regimes in the area.

Has he lost his marbles?

The Palestinians should be happy that they have what they do today. The Egyptians have always been happy that the Israelis didn't go any further than they did when responding to Arab aggression. Jordan and Syria have minded their place for the most part, knowing that they too could easily lose territory to Israel in further wars.

Now Obama wants to goad his Arab brethren into more hostilities, apparently.

Foolish. What the borders of Israel are are none of the US's business and this is foolish to boot.

Obama has just alienated one of the most loyal voting blocks the democrats have in Jewish voters who were already a bit wary of him, not only for his weak support of Israel and repeated catering to the Muslims, but also in the shabby treatment the Israeli government he and his administration have shown on a number of occasions. This is yet another, with the Israeli Prime Minister's visit so close to this announcement.

The vast majority of the country is fundamentally against foreign aid of any stripe, let alone foreign aid to nations that harbor terrorists. The last thing the people of this country want is tossing cash at Muslims, which will be seen rightly so, as protection money. At a time when unemployment is high and the nation's economy in terrible shape, to divert resources from domestic priorities and give it to Muslims, extremist or moderate is a political disaster.

He has set expectations that can not be met. It does not matter what you give the Palestinians, they will be a disaster as a governing entity absent massive amounts of aid and there is no way that Israel will give up the land in the first place and were they to give it up, would certainly need to be compensated.

This will also heighten an already strained relationship between Blacks and Jews, who ironically support common leaders in most cases, but historically have had a tense relationship.

Nobody really believes that we will spread democracy in the Middle East. At best we will get illegitimate elections pitting one religious thug against another. For the purpose of global stability, this will be nothing more than old wine in new bottles.

This alienates Wall Street and Hollywood, two of the largest sources of donations to the Democrat party. Both industrys are dominated by Jewish leaders who will not look too kindly of this about face in US policy.

I think this is an outright appeasement of the Muslims. Obama knows that high gas prices are huge election issues. He has probably worked a deal with OPEC whereby he denounces Israel and pushes for a return to the 1966 borders in turn for an increase in oil output and a dramatic reduction in oil prices.

The Republicans are licking their chops right now

Ummm you know Obama isn't an Arab right? Or even Muslim?

Please tell me you're being symbolic calling them his Arab brothers. Not trying to pick on ya but the site motto is Deny Ignorance.

Wow...I wondered if when the Palestinians declared statehood in their petition to the UN this coming fall if the US might just abstain. This makes it quite clear where the current administration will stand.

I doubt Israel will comply.

Pure media spin..

During the recent talk of war between Britain and Argentina the Obama administration used the Argentine name for the islands infuriating the British press and creating the impression his administration supported Argentina against Britain..

However dig a little bit under the surface and while all this talk of war dominated the headlines a British bank (Barlcays) supported by an American bank (Citi) where sorting out the Argentine debt default..

All we hear is media spin and lies...

So in this case I wonder what is actually happening since it seems to me to be the absolute opposite of what they say.
