Israel Fears Obama Heading for Imposed Mideast Settlement

Curt Here...

According to the article posted below President Obama is planning on imposing a permanent Mideast settlement on Israel and the Palestinians in less than two years. It seems to be clear that President Obama is telling Israel that your last chance to put forth a good faith effort to negotiate a deal is here and if they fail to do so it will forcefully imposed.

The huge problem with this approach is that the deal that everyone is trying to shove down Israels throat is one that they can not accept if they would like to remain a sovereign nation. Israel, under Prime Minister Netanyahu will not willingly give up East Jerusalem and this is exactly what they are currently demanding Israel to negotiate away. Which is why I have a very hard time believing that Obama and the world is going to wait and let the two year time frame clock run out on this.

It is very clear that this is a shot over the Israeli bow and soon I believe that it will be very clear that Israel will not wilt under international pressure. If and when this happens then the prophetic fireworks begin. Like I have said before, there will be a two state solution whether Israel likes it or not, which will be the perfect setup for the middle of the 70Th week. Could this all happen in the next few months? Well see.

Stay Tuned



U.S. President Barack Obama's demands during his meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last Tuesday point to an intention to impose a permanent settlement on Israel and the Palestinians in less than two years, political sources in Jerusalem say.

Israeli officials view the demands that Obama made at the White House as the tip of the iceberg under which lies a dramatic change in U.S. policy toward Israel.

Of 10 demands posed by Obama, four deal with Jerusalem: opening a Palestinian commercial interests office in East Jerusalem, an end to the razing of structures in Palestinian neighborhoods in the capital, stopping construction in Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem, and not building the neighborhood of Ramat Shlomo.

But another key demand - to discuss the dispute's core issues during the indirect talks that are planned - is perceived in Jerusalem as problematic because it implies that direct negotiations would be bypassed. This would set up a framework through which the Americans would be able to impose a final settlement.

It is not just Obama's demands that are perceived as problematic, but also the new modus operandi of American diplomacy. The fact that the White House and State Department have been in contact with Israel's European allies, first and foremost Germany, is seen as part of an effort to isolate Israel and put enormous political pressure on it.
