Today’s speech by US President Barack Obama is nothing short of an outrage, and one which openly declares Obama an enemy of the State of Israel.  The international community should clearly understand, in Israel there will be little to no political debate on this issue – It is almost unanimous that the calls for Israel to return to the 1967 borders would mark a grave danger to the state of Israel. As Prime Minister Netanyahu stated, these borders are “militarily indefensible.”

It is necessary in these times to remember the words of Israeli Ambassador Abba Eban, when he served as Israel’s Foreign Minister. Appearing at the United Nations following the Six Day war, he described the fragility of Israel’s 1949-1967 map referring to them as Israel’s “Auschwitz” lines:

“We have openly said that the map will never again be the same as on June 4, 1967. For us, this is a matter of security and of principles. The June map is for us equivalent to insecurity and danger. I do not exaggerate when I say that it has for us something of a memory of Auschwitz. We shudder when we think of what would have awaited us in the circumstances of June, 1967, if we had been defeated; with Syrians on the mountain and we in the valley, with the Jordanian army in sight of the sea, with the Egyptians who hold our throat in their hands in Gaza. This is a situation which will never be repeated in history.”

This proposal presents a serious threat to the State of Israel. This President is more concerned with Jews who build homes in the ancient Jewish homeland than he is Arab Muslims building bombs in Iran.

    unfortunately, netanyahu likely agrees with obama and has surely drawn up plans to divide jerusalem as well. he hasn’t revealed his plans or his true policies, much more similar to peres than to the Likud platform, as a matter of political expediency. in any case, a strong leader would ignore obama, act solely in the interests of israel and not, as has been the case for too many years, in the interests of the arabs/so-called Palestinians. Doing so would result in the US leaving the issue alone. as long as obama knows that bibi is pliable and weak he’ll continue to pressure him. in contrast, the arabs are steadfast in their hatred and obama realizes that he has nothing to say to them
