President Obama Defends Israel, Condemns Hamas, Sends Kerry To Egypt To Fix It

President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke on the phone today; The White House just released the clarifying statement of next steps...


Readout of the President’s Call with Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel

President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke again this morning by phone, their second call in three days to discuss the situation in Gaza.  The President discussed Israel’s ongoing military operation, reiterated the United States’ condemnation of attacks by Hamas against Israel, and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself.


The President also raised serious concern about the growing number of casualties, including increasing Palestinian civilian deaths in Gaza and the loss of Israeli soldiers.


President Obama informed the Prime Minister that Secretary of State John Kerry will soon travel to Cairo to seek an immediate cessation of hostilities based on a return to the November 2012 ceasefire agreement. The President underscored that the United States will work closely with Israel and regional partners on implementing an immediate ceasefire, and stressed the need to protect civilians—in Gaza and in Israel.

And all done in time for a late tee-off...

Jim Quinn's The Burning Platform Sunday Funnies segment has some choice cartoons this week on this very subject.

Art imitates reality indeed.

Kerry to the rescue again.  If his track record is any indicator of future outcome this should all be wrapped up in a day or two.



Ok, that was sarcastic.

'baraq' (or barack) is hebrew for lightning and lightning has been known to represent a fallen angel aka lucifer inside solar worshipping circles like zioni$sts n the vatican.  Where is the pope on this?  Not that its important but it illustrates the point nicely...and as for the poor ignorant masses of roman catholics muslims or torah jews, when havent they been financed or used by the powers that be?

When power is taken away from psychopaths.

The 28-page thing sounds like a carrot for 911 Truthers. Relations are souring with the Saudis; maybe crumbs will be used to smear Riyadh.

Take a look at the map of Eretz Yisrael.

The Saudis were always going to be thrown under the bus.

I guarantee those 28 pages leave out Urban Moving Systems and the Mossad fuckbags actually caught with explosives on 9/11.

Good thing Lucky Larry also broke his normal routine of breakfast at Windows On The World.  Good thing also that both his kids were "running late" to their jobs at the WTC that day.

I wonder why he "felt a compelling urge" to buy the asbestos laced white elephants that were the towers....?

The AP just reported that 2 of the 13 Israeli soldiers killed in Gaza were Americans who emigrated to Israel and joined the IDF.  Israel naturally put the two in the front lines, using them as cannon fodder (not real Israelis) and for political reasons should they get killed in combat.  What are the odds, thousands of Israeli combat soldiers in Gaza and 15% of the KIA are dead American immigrants?  Ask Benjamin.

(AP) Stuart Steinberg confirmed the death of his son Max Steinberg, 24, to The Associated Press on Sunday. Steinberg, whose family lives in Southern California's San Fernando Valley, was a sharpshooter for the Golani Brigade. He was one of 13 Israeli soldiers and 65 Palestinians killed in fighting Sunday during the first major ground battle in two weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas.

Earlier Sunday, the IDF said in a statement that Sgt. Nissim Sean Carmeli, 21, was killed in combat in the Gaza Strip. Carmeli was from South Padre Island, Texas, said Deputy Consul General of Israel to the Southwest Maya Kadosh. She said Carmeli moved to Israel four years ago and added that the consulate helped his family get a flight there Sunday.

Actually the name "Barack" means "blessed" or "blessings" in both African languages and Hebrew.

Are you high on something brother? Can't understand your gibberish, but hope your situation improves.

Only the terminally stupid still do not know Obama is a Muslim.


His Church named a Muslim as their man of the year....a racist black Muslim named Calypso Louie.....He admitted his Muslim faith and Clinton's top paid liar had to remind him he was a "Christian".....not a Muslim.



How stupid are people?

Don't presume to attack Obama by calling him Muslim. Once you get to a certain level, you find a different set of beliefs.  Pointing the finger at a religious association is misguided.

its actually all very simple... those who rule the planet (for now), are satanists.  Been that way for a long time.   Of course they don't advertise it, and do whatever they can to confuse the issue.

Obama is a good little Goy who will do what his masters want...

Otherwise Mossad might have to give the US another false flag spanking.

based on my research into his mother's family, I tend to agree.  She was secretly jewish.  But then again, so are a lot of U.S. presidents.  Lydon Johnson is easy to uncover... but there are many many others...

Unless Kerry is arriving with a date certain to end the offensive operations on the part of Israel I really fail to see what is to be negotiated.

Hamas surrenders?

And then what?

So far the only one that gained anything by all this mess is NATO.

"Facts on the ground are simply to be agreed to."
