Just do what you're told Bibiboy

I have this eerie feeling about the current lull in the 'peace process.' There must be something going on behind the scenes. Something like this.
Steve Simon, senior National Security Council advisor on the Middle East, held a conference call with Jewish leaders on Friday in which he said that the Palestinians had indicated that they would move forward with talks on the basis of Obama’s plan if Israel agreed to as well and that the US was now waiting for Israel’s answer, according to participants on the off-the-record call.

They said Simon also noted that the US was reasonably confident the Palestinians would abandon their effort to go to the UN in the case of such a scenario.

Simon pointed out that though the Palestinians have mentioned their intention of approaching the UN General Assembly for a vote on a declaration of statehood when it opens in September, the UN requirement that parties file in July for the GA opening meant that there was only a month to come up with an alternative.

He also described split opinion within the Palestinian camp over the wisdom of proceeding, and suggested that the Palestinians were looking for ways to avoid a UN showdown.

US President Barack Obama detailed a basis for a Palestinian state as a framework for negotiations in a Middle East policy address last month aimed in part at spurring on talks. But his outline, particularly that the pre-1967 lines with mutually agreed land swaps serve as the basis for a Palestinian state, troubled Netanyahu, who quickly pushed back against the idea.
Is Bibi going to crack? We've seen it too many times before. More here.

Is anyone aware that the U.S. border has been deteriorating as rapidly as Obama pursues stealing land from Israel? Also in the last 2 week period that the U.S. has been hit by 5 F-5 tornadoes. An F-5 is considered to be the finger of G-d. Five times Obama has gotten the finger, from G-d, and it just doesn't register with him.

It seems to me Israel can elect to be hanged now or drink poison later.

When it comes to national suicide, Netanyahu might want to be creative. There are only so many ways Jews can learn to start swimming if he is foolish enough to accept Obama's latest offer.

What could go wrong indeed

O's brilliant plan--hey, Palestinian Bombers posse are going to get its buddies to gang up on the Jewish kids in the cafeteria next Friday and steal their wallets for "lunch money".

So you guys should agree to give them the money voluntarily so we can settle this without all the shouting and overturning of chairs.

Um, no.
