On marks out of ten for his speech to the UN on the subject of ending the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel, I’d give President Obama minus five.

Earlier this month (on 4 September) I wrote a piece with the headline Obama has signalled his coming complete surrender to Zionism and its lobby. That surrender, it seems to me, is now effectively a fait accompli.

“After 60 years in the community of nations, Israel’s existence must not be a subject for debate,” Obama proclaimed. “It should be clear to all that efforts to chip away at Israel’s legitimacy will only be met by the unshakeable opposition of the United States.”

Leaving aside the matter of whether Zionism’s monster child is legitimate or not (I say it’s not), only a complete idiot would deny that Israel exists. The question is – WHICH Israel must not have its existence debated? Israel inside its borders as they were on the eve of the 1967 war or the greater Israel of today? That’s not a question Obama is prepared to ask let alone answer.

In my view the most appropriate response to Obama from the Arab and wider Muslim would be something this: All American presidents who refuse to demand (with the promise of sanctions if necessary) that Israel end its occupation of all Arab land grabbed in 1967 will only be met by the unshakeable opposition of all Arabs and other Muslims everywhere.

We now know what Obama himself expects of those Arabs who “count themselves as friends of the Palestinians”. They “must seize the opportunity for a peace agreement that will lead to a Palestinian state.” They can do that, Obama added, “by supporting the Palestinian Authority financially and politically and by coming to terms with Israel’s existence.”

Again the question – the existence of WHICH Israel must the Arabs come to terms with? To Obama I say, “Mr. President, until you are prepared to answer this question, you will have no credibility whatsoever in the Arab and wider Muslim world, at least far as ‘the street’ (the masses) is concerned.”

Obama’s notion that there is an opportunity for a peace agreement to be seized can only be the product of desperate and deluded wishful thinking on his part unless he believes that he can bribe and bully the discredited Palestinian Authority into accepting crumbs from Zionism’s table. It’s not totally impossible that he might be able to do so, but that would only provoke a Palestinian civil war. Could that be what Zionism really wants, in order to have a pretext for completing the ethnic cleansing of Palestine?

Perhaps most depressing of all was Obama’s statement about the need for an independent Palestinian state. It is required, he said, to provide Israel with “true security”. No mention of it being needed to go some way to righting the terrible wrong done to the Palestinians in Zionism’s name.

Yes, President Obama did call on Israel to continue its moratorium on new settlement activity. The question is – What is he going to do when, in a few days or three months from now, Israel defies him?

We know the answer. Nothing.

    Obama was a puppet from the Start.After the Bush debacle there should have been a new broom to sweep the despots from further corrupting our societies.

    Obama gave new powers to the most corrupt,evil institution on the planet, ie the US Federal Reserve.

    Nothing changed.In fact it got worse with new presidential orders further eroding personal liberties.

    I never thought that corruption would ever reach such depraved heights that we are now witnessing.

    Does Ron Paul step up to the plate and risk the similar fate of JFK?

    Power corrupts and absolute power destroys the very essence of our civilisation.

    Americans should be ashamed of themselves. Not one of their politicians who knows the truth about Israel is not sold out.

    On the very day the UN declares Israel violated International Law killing Palestinian peace activists, AN AMERICAN KID AMONG OTHERS, SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES IN THE BACK OF HIS HEAD and their President is heard at the UN defending Israel’s rights.

    SHAME ON THEM! THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR NATION TO THUGS. THEY MAKE ME SICK.

    What a disgrace that Obama is.

    Netanyahu must be laughing at the control he has over 200 million Americans, the so-called most powerful nation in the world, but a puppet on an Israeli string.

    How disgraceful they have all become and for those good people in the Congress (there aren’t many, mind you) they must be ashamed to be seen as representatives of people, a whole country, who have been sold down the river yet again by an elected president.

    A bad day for peace, justice, honesty, integrity and fair-mindedness all because of a pathetic and weak president who has sold his soul to a foreign country.

    May Obama pay for this in some way to equal his perfidy as similar to his predecessor, Johnson, sold out the American people over the USS Liberty.

    Just as that ship and its murdered US crew has represented Johnson’s treachery since 1967, so during the remainder of Obama’s tenure as a lame duck president we will be reminded daily of his treacherous act in the support of a hated state.

    Mighty are the plans of Mice and Men. Large and beautiful are the hints and the promises of “things to come” in an election year. High and lofty are the targets and the intentions but, if the arrow is not launched from a taught bowstring, you can bet it will fall short.

    Barack Obama, ever since he hove up over the horizon a few years ago walking in to Washington from that far Midwestern state with a Presidential gleam in his eye, has demonstrated a high degree of rhetoric but a rather low degree of achievement.

    Is there anything different in this latest batch of words to indicate that anything has changed? Even the change he promised has not eventuated… what is there which indicates that is the “change” we have been looking for?

    It is long past the time for words! If he wants to overhaul the US, its Foreign Policy or make any changes, now is the time to stop talking about it and start doing something about it.

    It is time to walk the talk…. and he has long ago demonstrated that he is incapable of talking and walking at the same time.

    My take? Election year bullshit.

    Zionist entity is the only member of United Nations which doesn’t have internationally recognized borders. This suits the Zionist-regime as their dream has never been just the occupation of British mandated Palestine, but alos Trans-Jordan, Lebanon and Southern Iraq – the so-called ‘Eretz Israel’.

    Ben Obama is another Black creation of the Jewish Lobby – to use his “Muslim” background and with the help of another ‘Crypto-Jew’ Mahmoud Abbas (his family was Iranian Bahais) – achieve that dream of Theodor Herzl.

    If we win this,we should show these criminals how a real creative,passionate,ethical, empathic,courageous civilisation deals with those who transgress all boundaries of what is ethical and decent.

    We should not lower ourselves to their moronic lust for power and indulge in revenge that lowers us to their standards.Justice should be swift and effective but allow no escape via the death penality.

    We are are making serious progress but still the odds are heavily stacked against us.Public apathy abounds and their Hollywood media drug is the distraction.

    For a lot of people the debt slavery is saping their strength and they don’t want to hear even more bad news of oppression.

    We should also push the monetary angle.’Secret of Oz’ by Bill Still.This is an excellent doco that has already received two awards. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D22TlVA8F2E

    If they won’t believe the 911 depravity,they’ll look at who is legally stealing from them and believe it.

    Israel, A Nation Built On A False Premise.

    The critical fallacy and false premise here is all contained in his statement, “After 60 years in the community of nations, Israel’s existence must not be a subject for debate….”

    Obama, as well versed in Constitution Law as he is supposed to be, has apparently neglected his history, or his speech writers have failed him miserably.

    Israel may have been here for sixty years, but it has never joined the “community of nations” or become an actual Nation itself.

    It has no established and proclaimed borders!

    It has no Constitution or other legal founding document and statement of being and purpose as does most actual Nations!

    It has no treaties with neighboring or “allied” nations of the world.

    It is actually about as much of a “neighbor” of the “community of nations” as is the school bully, the “bully on the block,” or the invading marauding Hun or Vandal from the barbaric hinterlands of the Far East.

    And, it has never adopted a neighborly attitude toward any other of the nations of the world or the Middle East, particularly those who were unfortunate enough to have a Nation they chose to steal, or be a neighbor to the land which they stole and in which they settled.

    They have been called a pariah nation, which is about as close to “nationhood” as they will ever get, for as long as they exist as a pseudo “nation” which, by grace of God and the will of the rest of the world, shall not be for much longer.

    Iran’s President Ahmadinejad speaks with the voice of prophecy when he says, “they shall disappear from the pages of history.”

    May it be so…. amen! May it be soon!
