If Caroline Glick is correct that there have been secret negotiations between the Obama Administration and Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Israeli government concerning Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria; then Netanyahu is turning his back on the Israeli voters that placed Likkud back in power. Netanyahu’s Likkud election was based in large part on NOT giving up Land for a false peace.
I wonder what President Barack Hussein Obama used as pressure to force Prime Minister Netanyahu to think about placing Israel in a destructive path? Glick wrote that she believes Netanyahu is gambling that the Palestinian Authority will turn down the terms Obama seems to have worked out.
If Glick is correct about the terms they are a deal to lease East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria would be leased to Israel for a certain amount of years in which the lease runs out eventually giving absolute control to the Western forced and propped up State of Palestine. Like any Jew would live in an area in which the stated goals are the destruction of Israel in entirety and all Jews in the process. I say a “certain amount of years” because the time frame of lease has not been agreed upon between Netanyahu and the Obama Administration. If the deal proceeded Israel wants like a ninety year lease and Obama is thinking more of a short term lease which perhaps might be a decade or so.
If the deal proceeded Netanyahu would be forcing a validation of the Islamic claims to Jerusalem and to land of Jewish heritage. The validation would truly turn Israel into an occupying nation if an eventual war between the neophyte Palestinian State and Israel broke out with Israel winning retaking their Land again. I know the West is insistent on following the Jew-hating Arab nations’ mythology that Israel occupied land won in 1967. That concept is an error! Israel did win land from Egypt, Syria and Jordan in that Six Day War but Israel was not the aggressor. The land that Jordan attached the appellation of West Bank was actually occupied after a British led Jordanian Army (Arab Legion) in 1948 pushed Israel back to Jerusalem usurping the Eastern half in which Jerusalem’s ancient Jewish Quarter existed. The land occupied by Jordan and conquered by General John Gordon Glubb (Glubb Pasha) was a part of the original Palestine Mandate that was created for a Jewish Homeland with little to no protest at the idea in 1917 by surrounding Muslim-Arabs.
The American Left and a significant amount of Republicans (especially of the foreign policy orientation) have been twisting the screws for decades to press Israel to return at least to the pre-1967 borders. Amazingly America’s Jewish Left with the likes of J Street (SA HERE) and Israel’s land-for-peace party – aka Kadima – led by the previous Prime Minister defeated by Netanyahu’s Likkud, Tzipi Livni have called for a return to the 1948 borders that Israel managed to survive with when Independence was declared.
If indeed Netanyahu did participate in secret negotiations and parleyed East Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria; then Netanyahu is one of a long line of Israeli Prime Ministers that have caved into Western and American pressure to give up Jewish land to hateful Muslims who desire Israel’s destruction.
