Obama to rebuke Israel at UN

The Reverend Jeremiah Wright could not be reached for comment:

The U.S. informed Arab governments Tuesday that it will support a U.N. Security Council statement reaffirming that the 15-nation body "does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity," a move aimed at avoiding the prospect of having to veto a stronger Palestinian resolution calling the settlements illegal.

But the Palestinians rejected the American offer following a meeting late Wednesday of Arab representatives and said it is planning to press for a vote on its resolution on Friday, according to officials familar with the issue. The decision to reject the American offer raised the prospect that the Obama adminstration will cast its first ever veto in the U.N. Security Council. 

Still, the U.S. offer signaled a renewed willingness to seek a way out of the current impasse, even if it requires breaking with Israel and joining others in the council in sending a strong message to its key ally to stop its construction of new settlements. The Palestinian delegation, along with Lebanon, the Security Council's only Arab member state, have asked the council's president this evening to schedule a meeting for Friday. But it remained unclear whether the Palestinian move today to reject the U.S. offer is simply a negotiating tactic aimed at extracting a better deal from Washington.

Arabs extracting better deals from Washington has become a staple has it not?

As more of the pieces of the puzzle fall into place it's become clear that Obama actually is Al-Mahdi, the 12 Imam.

After he finishing his fundamental transformation of the US into a third world cesspool, and with the power of the newly unified 57 states of the Muslim empire (hence the Freudian slip back in '08) he will rule the world and bring communism and sharia law to all.

On the plus side Michelle's mean and ugly face will be covered with a burka.

Les Nessman:

"Israel became a nation in 1312 B.C.E., two thousand years before the rise of Islam.
For over 3,300 years, Jerusalem has been the Jewish capital. Jerusalem has never been the capital of any Arab or Muslim entity. Even when the Jordanians occupied Jerusalem, they never sought to make it their capital, and Arab leaders did not come to visit."

Jim Addison:

Obama obviously prefers marxists and islamists to American allies.

Unfortunately for our country, most of the once-proud Democratic Party now agrees with him in standing against American interests everywhere in the world.

The US public does not need to believe anything, the Arabs need to recognize the state of Israel and decide that living in peace is better than a constant state of war, which unfortunately­ is only hurting themselves­. When that happens, there will be no need for UN resolution­s at all.
