Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama.

Bloomberg View – When Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the White House tomorrow, President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future — one of international isolation and demographic disaster — if he refuses to endorse a U.S.-drafted framework agreement for peace with the Palestinians. Obama will warn Netanyahu that time is running out for Israel as a Jewish-majority democracy. And the president will make the case that Netanyahu, alone among Israelis, has the strength and political credibility to lead his people away from the precipice.

  • I THINK ISRAEL DIDNT SEND THAT LAST SHIPMENT OF DEMENTIA PILLS TO THE WHITE HOUSE…

    THATS WHAT IS CLEARLY WRONG RIGHT NOW

    The best place for Israel to be is NOT an ally of the US. Go ask the Ukrainians.

    “President Barack Obama will tell him that his country could face a bleak future — one of international isolation and demographic disaster…”

    Yeah, right now he’s got to take care of Putin but he’ll be back.

    Those who served in the IDF,and gave their lives defending these same borders that Obama wants us to part with.And for what,to give it away to terrorists who want to annihilate us.There will NEVER be peace in the ME..If these Arabs can’t even tolerate each other and are killing off each other,then what hope would we have…When Obama retires he will move to the safety of Hawaii…Whilst we will still be living here next to Arabs who want to finish us off….Obama can give away or share Washington with these palestiians,if he so wishes…Netanyahu should tell Obama…NYET…This one word that he understands very well……

    LOL, Obama is a useless cow. Yeah not even a bull. Bibi should tell him and Kerry they will not be getting a Nobel for dismantling Israel, although maybe they’ll get one for tearing apart Syria, Iraq and now the Ukraine.

    The only one for whom time is running out is Obama. Israel faces a great future and is growing from strength to strength. Only 2 more years and Obama will be gone. Under his “brilliant” leadership it is America that has lost face, status and effectiveness everywhere on the world stage. The Palestinians cling to their ridiculous dreams of exterminating Israel and this leads them to increasingly bad decisions, so for them too, time is running out.

    The full article text says that in placing the onus on Netanyahu to bend to reach a peace deal with Palestinian Arabs, Obama will quote him the second and third lines of Hillel’s famous wisdom: “… If not you, who? And if not now, when?”

    Perhaps our President is unaware of Hillel’s first line: “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?”

    I say that if anything, it is America that is already facing international isolation. President Obama thinks that he can pressure the Jew to bow to his whims and wishes. He has lost all prestige and leadership in the entire world but the only place he feels, that if he can get the “Jew” to bow, he will have gained back what he lost. I say to Natanyahu, don’t give up. You have no right. You represent every Jew and we would never give in for blackmail, even if it comes from the President of the United States.

    What is better for your people? The threat of international isolation and demographic disaster or death and destruction at the hands of Islamic/Palestinian terrorism. Not much of a choice.
