View Full Version : Perry to Slam Obama on Israel.....

09-20-2011, 08:09 AM

In a speech scheduled in New York on Tuesday, Perry pledges strong support for Israel and criticizes President Barack Obama for demanding concessions from the Jewish state that Perry says emboldened the Palestinians to seek recognition by the U.N.

"We are indignant that certain Middle Eastern leaders have discarded the principle of direct negotiations between the sovereign nation of Israel and the Palestinian leadership," Perry said. "And we are equally indignant that the Obama administration's Middle East policy of appeasement has encouraged such an ominous act of bad faith."

The U.S. has promised a veto in the Security Council, but the Palestinians can press for a more limited recognition of statehood before the full and much more supportive General Assembly. The Obama administration has pushed hard for countries around the world to block the Palestinian bid, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday there was still time to avert a divisive showdown.

Obama has been criticized by Republicans and many pro-Israel activists for seeming to push the Jewish state harder than the Palestinians to make compromises to achieve peace. Among other things, Obama has called on Israel to cease building housing settlements in the West Bank and to negotiate the scope of the Palestinian state using 1967 borders as a starting point a diplomatic position the U.S. has long maintained but one that has never before been explicitly embraced by a U.S. president.

"It's vitally important for America to preserve alliances with leaders who seek to preserve peace and stability in the region," Perry said. "But today, neither adversaries nor allies know where America stands. Our muddle of a foreign policy has created great uncertainty in the midst of the Arab Spring.".....snip~

Perry is saying that Obama has pushed the Israelis to far by demanding concessions from them. Plus Obama is calling on other countries to block the UN bid by the Palestinians. Clinton says they still have time. This is all so ridiculous. There is NOTHING WE CAN DO TO STOP THE PALESTINIAN BID from taking place. Obama should have had them at the table and talking not driving them farther apart.

I agree, but Perry will use this as ammo. Not like he needs more but like we saw with Weiner's district, the Jewish are not happy with the Dems and Obama.

considering the fact that the Pastinians under Hamas control seeks nothing more thatn the total destruction of the state of Isreal, they do not warrant have any form of so called state hood confered on them, they are killers and terrorist who hide behind women and children while launching their attacks on Isreal.

Notice Perry doesn't have a solution either. Still then why was the US giving money to the Palestinians?

I can't fault Perry for that. Does anyone have a solution? When two groups of people want to destroy each other, what can you do?
