    • Judge Schwebel, a former President of the ICJ, who pronounced “As between Israel, acting defensively in 1948 and 1967, on the one hand, and her Arab neighbors, acting aggressively, in 1948 and 1967, on the other, Israel has the better title in the territory of what was Palestine, including the whole of Jerusalem.” (See Appendix A and http://www.2nd-thoughts.org/id248.html )

    • William M. Brinton, who appealed against a US district court’s withholding of State Department documents concerning US policy on issues involving Israel and the West Bank, the Golan Heights, and the Gaza Strip. He showed that none of these areas fall within the definition of “occupied territories” and that any claim that the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, or both, is a Palestinian homeland to which the Palestinians have a ‘legitimate right’ lacks substance and does not survive legal analysis. According to Mr. Brinton no state, other than Israel, can show a better title to the West Bank.

      You’re a brainwashed anti-Semite.

      The US has given 100 billion to Iraqi terrorists over the past decade, and no one words it the way you brainwashed antisemites do for Jews.

  • Florres

    Ungrateful shmo, after all the Jews did, and how far we went out of our way to get that slimy backstabber elected twice!!! Not one thing for us.

    Has he even mentioned poor among the Jews once in his evil tenure as pres?

  • yzwisey

    I do not believe oboma has the authority to out right deny Israel request for monies.. that is up to Congress.

    So much for the promises that Nadler and other Democrats got from Obama when he promised to increase security cooperation. We need to remember that Democrats abandoned Israel in her time of need for paper promises from Obama that were quickly broken.
