Yes, there now is a settlement in Israel called "Obama".
In a move that comes as gesture of deep gratitude, the Israeli government permitted an extreme rightwing Israeli association to name a new
settlement Obama. The building of settlements makes the establishment of a connected Palestinian state an impossible task.
As the above content states, this definitely hinders the peace process. Settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank is illegal and this news is
announced while Secretary of State John Kerry is in Israel to help resume peace talks to find a resolution on the Israel/Palestine issue...this is
very "ironic" in my opinion.
I wonder what it is that they are conspiring?
Bulldozers started to pave the way for the settlement a day after Obama gave his speech to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)
annual conference. The construction of the settlement comes in the larger context of a Zionization project that aims to link Jerusalem to the city of
Ma’ale Adumim, north east of Jerusalem.
The hardliners in Israel always have their bulldozers ready to demolish Palestinian homes. They won't stop until every Palestinian is pushed into the
The location of the Obama settlement is along the main road that connects the West Bank’s northern and southern regions; a consequence of
building the settlement would therefore be to separate those territories permanently.
To top it off, this new settlement will now permanently separate two Palestinian territories so it will make it even more difficult for the citizens
of the occupied West Bank to conduct their daily travels, it's already quite a task.
In order to make concrete the reality of settlement in these territories, the Israeli government has decided to move its police headquarters next
to the Obama settlement.
At least the land thieving settlers will have a police presence to keep them safe
Israeli radio reported that this step came to honour Obama’s positions in solidarity with Israel which he disclosed to his audience at the AIPAC
In other words, Obama has assured the AIPAC lobbyists that he is willing to cater to their demands. AIPAC controls so much American policy both
domestically and abroad that any American citizen should be angered to the point where they demand these lobbyists to be considered terrorist
The same thing is happening in my native country of Canada so I am not poking fun at the United States, we have our own Zionist stooge, but he is less
useful to Israel than Obama.
Israeli official sources mentioned that the Israeli step comes in the framework of the strategy “Greater Jerusalem,” which aims to change the
demographic nature of Jerusalem, raising the number of Jews to one million, a project put forth by former Israeli prime minister Ariel Sharon.
They might as well come out and admit that they will not stop until they have stolen the Euphrates to the Nile as this certainly appears to be their
This is ethnic cleansing by forcing Arabs out of their homes to make place for Jews.
Another slightly related fact I would like to point out:
Iran named a street after Rachel Corrie, Israel named a settlement after Obama.
Kind of makes you say think huh?
