A screenshot for the campaign ad released by former presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

A new video slamming President Barack Obama’s policy towards Israel was released recently by former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum. In the video, which was released on Santorum’s website Patriotvoices.com, Obama is taken to task for his call for a proposed future Palestinian state to be contiguous. It also details the setbacks and difficulties for Israel if the terms of President Obama’s two-state solution were to be implemented.

“President Obama has shown the world where his priorities lie as they relate to the Middle East.  He continues to apologize to our enemies, negotiate with Iran, and turn his back on our ally Israel,”  says Santorum in a release that accompanied the ad.

  • “Contiguous Palestine” says President Obama. Does this mean that President Obama wants to give the Negev to a new Palestinian State? Speaking at the State Department on May 19, 2011, and then on May 22, 2011 at the Washington policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), President Obama envisioned a possible peace treaty in which Israel would border on a new Palestinian State which, in turn, would also have borders with Jordan and Egypt. But, remarkably neither of the Obama speeches referred to an Israeli border with Egypt. This is significant because, in the 1979 treaty with Israel, Egypt had already specifically recognized an international border with Israel that runs along the south-west edge of the Gaza Strip and then down along the eastern side of the Egyptian Sinai, i.e. the west side of the Negev. Does this mean that Obama thinks that the Negev might be given to a new Palestinian State in a land swap, e.g., in exchange for Jerusalem? This hypothesis is somewhat supported by Obama’s careful inclusion in both speeches of the adjective “contiguous” with reference to the territory of a new Palestinian State. This could indicate that Obama is perhaps contemplating a solid Palestinian land mass joining Gaza with the West Bank. For Obama, this scenario would have the added plus of contributing to another one of his cherished goals –namely taking away Israel’s nuclear weapons. Pressuring Israel to cede the Negev to a new Palestinian State would for Obama have the added advantage of necessitating Israel’s abandonment of its nuclear defense research establishment at Dimona.

    Looking at Obama’s May 19 and May 22, 2011 speeches, we should ponder the word “contiguous” and ask ourselves how the identical ambiguity about Israel’s border with Egypt managed to get included in the speeches for these two different but politically important audiences.

    so why should israel listen to obama? let him manage his own country…….and israel should reject any of obama’s words…..israel is not america and america is not israel……

  • Obama has the same view about Israel as his good friend Rashid Khalidi who supports the PLO Charter which calls for the murder of six million Jews…Why do you think the Obamas and Khalidis socialized so much in Chicago?…because they agree on the fate of the six million Jews in Israel…
