They'll say anything to avoid having to exercise that veto

Jeffrey Goldberg doesn't understand why the Jews don't love Obama (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
The anti-Israel Barack Obama, who has strengthened America's defense and intelligence ties with Israel (despite secretly hating it, as many Republican will tell you), also appointed the secretly Israel-hating Susan Rice as American ambassador to the United Nations, where she spends much of her time vigorously defending Israel (go figure). Just like yours truly, she sees the Palestinian gambit at the United Nations as worse than useless. Late last week I spoke with Rice about the upcoming battle at the UN over Palestinian statehood. Here are some of her comments:

On the Obama Administration's approach to the Middle East at the United Nations: "Just as we have been doing for two and a half years, beating back counterproductive anti-Israel efforts of various flavors in New York and in Geneva, we've been seeing this one coming for quite a while and working to try to avoid it, not only because this is consistent with our overall approach to defend Israel's right to defend itself, but because it is counterproductive."

She explained: "This is about shortcutting a process for which there are no shortcuts. At the end of the day, there's only one way to create two states for two peoples, and that is negotiations To have a drama that changes very little in the world vis-a-vis the actual conflict, and then to expect that while one party is taking this great victory lap the other party is going to run to the negotiating table, is not necessarily realistic."
Read the whole thing.

Hey Jeffrey - Susan Rice doesn't secretly hate Israel. She's quite open about it. And so is Barack Obama. Trying to stop the 'Palestinians' from presenting this proposal to the United Nations is a win-win for Obama. If he succeeds, he avoids having to exercise the US veto in the Security Council (which he REALLY doesn't want to do) and he convinces Jews like Jeffrey Goldberg that deep down, he really is pro-Israel.

What could go wrong?

But Barak Hussein Obama and Susan Rice are nevertheless demanding that Israel not crimp the PA's financial style for their tearing up of Oslo's requirement that PA status change be through direct negotiation--not unilateral initiatives.

Commentary asks: if the very same international "guarantors" of Oslo either support UDI or attempt to intimidate Israel into ignoring its blatant violation, why should Israel for God's sake sign any other agreements, to be guaranteed by these same willfull violators of their Oslo promises?

Fool me once....
