Obama to apologize to Egypt for Six-Day War?

Late Friday night Israel time, it was announced that President Barack Hussein Obama has decided to fulfill his promise to make a major address apologize from a Muslim country by doing so from Egypt on June 4 (Hat Tip: Little Green Footballs).
Obama pledged during the campaign to address the Muslim world from a Muslim capital within the first few months of taking office. Picking a site proved challenging for a range of reasons -- from diplomacy to security -- and the decision took longer than expected, with Obama commissioning options from a research team.

Having settled on Egypt, the White House today announced that he is adding a stop there to his early June overseas trip. That trip will also take him to Normandy, France, for the anniversary of D-Day, and to the Buchenwald concentration camp and Dresden, Germany.
Obama has apologized for something America did just about everyplace he has gone to this point (in fact, it is rumored that when he gets to Buchenwald and Dresden he plans to apologize to the Germans for their suffering in World War II). But there's another apology he will likely make in Egypt that I have not seen mentioned anywhere in the media.

June 5 will be the 42nd anniversary of the Six-Day War, in which Israel was attacked by Egypt, Jordan and Syria. The results of that war, in which the Arab countries vowed to drive the Jews into the Sea (literally), were the liberation by Israel of the Sinai, the Gaza Strip, the Old City of Jerusalem and the eastern half of the City, Judea and Samaria and the Golan Heights. Since then, the Arab reprise has been that they want to 'go back to the June 4, 1967 borders.'

Anyone want to bet that Obama is going to apologize to Egypt for their defeat in the Six-Day War (a defeat that they try to portray as a victory)? I'd be shocked if he didn't.

Hussein wants to reset Israel to "0", so that the Arabs can have a chance to replay the Six Day War in order to give them a chance to win. Bibi must be supported and stay very strong against the evil machinations of the White House and the State Dept. (and maybe even the Pentagon). He must never blink. Our lives depend on his strength.

Obama keeps on apologizing. No sane Jew in Israel would apologize for Israel's existence. If there's anything Israelis should learn, it is that Obama's predilection for the Muslim World means he is not going to be their friend. It is that simple.

Maybe some American Jews will apologize for voting for Obama and encouraging others to vote for him.

to carl and all the rest who keep using the republican and faux news talking points of obama "apologizing", care to repost the exact words of him saying, "i am sorry for what america has done"

you cant and wont, because they dont exist

explaining and talking is not the same as apologizing.

sorry that he isnt like bush...and his policies worked out really well.

or is it my imagination that most of the hamas attrocities occured while bush was president

This one is not something BO can apologize for. He can apologize for selling us arms, but he ca can not apologize for Israel handily wiping the floor with Egypt.
