This morning when I wrote a post saying that the United States isn't really a friend/ally of Israel, I had no idea that while I was busy at work, sans computer/internet, that Obama would spill the beans, take off his mask and declare that he expected Israel to withdraw from all of the Land we liberated in the 1967 Six Days War, a war that began because of Arab aggresssion, verbal and military.
Obama's urging that a Palestinian state be based on 1967 borders — before the Six Day War in which Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza — was a significant shift in the U.S. approach and seemed certain to anger Israel. (article)
Egypt, Jordan and Syria all made it clear that their war goal/aim was to destroy the State of Israel and push all the Israelis into the sea.
According to all international law, historic precedent a country that survives a war of aggression against it and finds itself in possession of land of its enemy that land goes to the victor! Therefore, we should never have given the Sinai to Egypt. Egypt lost all rights to it when it massed its tanks on it to conquer Israel.
Jordan gave up all rights to Judea and Samaria when it attacked Israel. There had never been a Palestinian State. There is no Palestinian history that predates the fiction people spout today.
Syria gave up all rights to the Golan Heights when it attacked Israel and lost it in the war.
It's about time that Israeli politicians act like rsponsible leaders and do what's best for the State of Israel and not try to curry favor with those who don't care if we survive or not.
