Since Netanyahu’s victory last week, the Obama administration has offered little more than a cold shoulder to Israel, and seems more interested in talking to Iran.
The fact that Israel is our best ally in the region is overlooked while Obama continues working on his so-called “non-binding agreement.”
This morning on FOX and Friends, Tucker Carlson discussed the issue with Ann Coulter:
Obama and others on the left seem to harbor a belief that things would be different if someone other than Netanyahu was the prime minister of Israel.
In his weekly column, Charles Krauthammer reminds us that Netanyahu isn’t the problem:
No Peace Any Time Soon, but Not Because of Bibi
Of all the idiocies uttered in reaction to Benjamin Netanyahu’s stunning election victory, none is more ubiquitous than the idea that peace prospects are now dead because Netanyahu has declared that there will be no Palestinian state while he is Israel’s prime minister.
I have news for the lowing herds: There would be no peace and no Palestinian state if Isaac Herzog were prime minister either. Or Ehud Barak or Ehud Olmert for that matter. The latter two were (non-Likud) prime ministers who offered the Palestinians their own state — with its capital in Jerusalem and every Israeli settlement in the new Palestine uprooted — only to be rudely rejected.
This is not ancient history. This is 2000, 2001, and 2008 — three astonishingly concessionary peace offers within the last 15 years. Every one rejected.
The fundamental reality remains: This generation of Palestinian leadership — from Yasser Arafat to Mahmoud Abbas — has never and will never sign its name to a final peace settlement dividing the land with a Jewish state. And without that, no Israeli government of any kind will agree to a Palestinian state.
