UNDERSTAND WHY OBAMA IS DEATH FOR ISRAEL
Obama Gives Final Burial to 'Undivided Jerusalem' Statement
Obama replied: "You know, the truth is that this was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech. And we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given.
"The point we were simply making was, is that we don't want barbed wire running through Jerusalem, similar to the way it was prior to the '67 war, that it is possible for us to create a Jerusalem that is cohesive and coherent.
Sin of syntax
"I was not trying to predetermine what are essentially final status issues. I think the Clinton formulation provides a starting point for discussions between the parties.
"And it is an example of us making sure that we are careful in terms of our syntax. But the intention was never to move away from that basic, core idea that they -- that those parties are going to have to negotiate these issues on their own, with the strong engagement of the United States.
"And if you look at the overall tenor of that speech and what I've said historically about this issue, you know, Israel has an interest not just in bunkering down. [They've got to give in even more!] They've got to recognize that their long-term viability as a Jewish state is going to depend on their ability to create peace with their neighbors."
In the same speech to AIPAC, Obama said that he would never compromise on Israel's security and promised: "I will do everything in my power – everything – to ensure that Iran does not achieve a nuclear weapon." [How long before he decides to renege on this promise also? As soon as he's elected!]
