Obama’s Growing List of Omitted Facts

In a speech on December 16, 2011 at the 71st general assembly of the Union for Reform Judaism, President Obama proudly mentioned a list of his administration’s actions in support of Israel as ‘facts’.

Some ‘facts’ he listed included…:

– “On my watch, the United States of America has led the way, from Durban to the United Nations, against attempts to use international forums to delegitimize Israel.”

– “In fact, I am proud to say that no U.S. administration has done more in support of Israel’s security than ours. None. Don’t let anybody else tell you otherwise. It is a fact.”

Obama's Speech at the Union for Reform Judaism
Here are some facts about the Obama Administration’s relations and support of Israel and handling of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict – facts Obama has failed to mention in his speech:

Snubbing Netanyahu. On March 23, 2010, Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu visited President Obama in the White House.

Obama treated his guest to a series of slights. Photographs of the meeting were forbidden and an Israeli request to issue a joint-statement once it was over were turned down.

In the meeting, Obama has presented Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. When Netanyahu refused to heed to these demands – Obama had left the room to ‘have dinner with Michelle and the girls’ leaving Netanyahu and his aids all to themselves for over an hour in the Roosevelt Room.

As he left, Mr. Netanyahu was told to consider the ‘error of his ways’. “I’m still around,” Mr. Obama is quoted as having said. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

 

Panetta Reprimanding Israel.  It is well documented that it was the Palestinians who have walked out of direct peace negotiations with Israel back in October 2010.

PLO-confirms-Top
Speaking in Washington on December 2, 2011 at the Saban Conference, an annual forum sponsored by entertainment mogul Chaim Saban and the Brookings Institution, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta was asked: “Mr. Secretary, you made a strong statement about Israel’s responsibility to make peace. What steps should it [Israel] take now? Withdraw the Israeli army from Palestinian territories?” “No”, said Panetta, “Just get to the damn table!“.

 

 

Expressing Disdain for Netanyahu. The president of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, told President Obama that he could no longer bear Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, and went on to call Mr. Netanyahu a “liar” in a private conversation overheard by several French journalists in November 2011 at the Group of 20 summit meeting in Cannes. Obama repliedYou are fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you.”

 

Obama’s Ambassador Blames Israel for Anti-Semitism. On November 30, 2011, in his introduction to a gathering about anti-Semitism in Europe titled: “Conference on Fighting Anti-Semitism in Europe: What is Next?” U.S. ambassador to Belgium Mr. Howard Gutman, said that Muslim hatred for Jews stemming from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should not be construed as anti-Semitism.

 

Imposing a Peace Arrangement on Israel.  In his aforementioned speech on December 16, 2011 at the 71st general assembly of the Union for Reform Judaism, President Obama declared that “Peace can’t be imposed from the outside. Ultimately, it is the Israelis and the Palestinians who must reach agreement on the issues that divide them.”

Yet, in a different speech on May 19, 2001, Mr. Obama declared: “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps…”

 

Insisting on Halt To Settlements as Pre-Condition to Peace Talks. In May 2009, after the first meeting in the White House between Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, President Obama has declared: “Settlements have to be stopped in order for us to move forward“.

Palestinians, who until that point had never made a total settlement freeze – including in areas beyond the Green Line in Jerusalem – a condition for negotiations, heard Obama and pounced. If this was what the American president was saying, how could they ask for anything less?

 

Hillary Clinton Scolds Netanyahu; David Axelrod blisters Israel on East Jerusalem Settlement ‘Affront’ while the Palestinian Authority Names a Public Square in a Terrorist’s Honor. While Obama administration’s officials are busy condemning Israel‘s decision to build some housing units in its own capital, and while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is busy scolding Prime Minister Netanyahu for 45 minutes over the phone, the Palestinian Authority dedicated a public square to the memory of a brutal murderer who in 1979 led the worst terrorist attack in Israel’s history, slaughtering 37 innocent civilians, including children, and the Obama administration is silent.

 

Breaking America’s Promise to Israel NOT to Call for its Return to 1967 Borders. In 2004, The Unites States of America made a promise to Israel that it would not be forced back to the pre-1967 lines.

In his speech on May 19, 2001, Mr. Obama declared: “The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps…”

Palestinian State with 1967 Borders. Another Palestinian Lie!

In a May 16, 2011 op-ed in The New York Times that is littered with lies, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas wrote "this September, at the United Nations General Assembly, we will request international recognition of the State of Palestine on the 1967 border and that our state be admitted as a full member of the United Nations."

He lied!

The official Application of Palestine for Admission to Membership in the United Nations submitted on September 23, 2011, reads: "This application for membership is being submitted based on the Palestinian people's natural, legal and historic rights and based on United Nations General Assembly resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947…".

 

Palestiniant-Statehood-Appl
The United Nations General Assembly resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 calls for the creation of an Arab state and a Jewish state, with borders that are entirely different than the 1967 borders. In fact, the borders stated in resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 call for a much smaller Jewish state than Israel's 1967 borders.

19671947

Upon passing, the UN resolution 181 (II) of 29 November 1947 was immediately accepted by the Jewish residents of Palestine.

Just as quickly, the Arabs of Palestine and the entire Arab world have unanimously and collectively rejected it.  In fact, once the British left Palestine on May 14, 1948, six Arab nations joined the Arab residents of Palestine to wage a war against the just-declared Jewish state of Israel.

The 1948-1949 Israel's Independence War resulted with new borders for Israel, which held until the 1967 Six-Day War, now commonly referred to as 'the 1967 borders'.

“Humanity vs. the Rothschlds” [he means Rothschilds.]

In earlier centuries up through WWII, anti-Semitic “Jewish banker” conspiracy theories frequently focused on the Rothschilds, a prominent European Jewish family which owned many financial institutions.

“End the Fed. Turn off the spigot!!!”, with an illustration showing Stars of David (containing the word “Zion”), missiles, and dollar signs, implying either that Jewish influence in the Federal government is what causes war funding, or that Jews pressure the government to send military aid to Israel, or both (Occupy Los Angeles).
