1. Obama wants ...: No problerm providing
DT ,   TA Israel   (09.21.11)
Israel has all the settlements, Judea and Samaria, Jerusalem all of it , a US commitment to unconditionally back Israel in the useless UN when the Arabs attack and we obliterate them .
2. Makes sense
Ram ,   London   (09.21.11)
The problem lies in the fact that BHO entered the ME scenario like a bull in a china shop; no doubt because of his pro-arab stance. There is a lot of work that has to be undone in the form of weening away the false hope and expectations the "palestinians" built on his approach. They will need a pretty long ladder to help them come down those dizzying hights. In truth the so called "palestinians" should consider Jordan home. However, with all the generosity that Israel has demonstrated in sharing their sliver of land with the creation of yet another arab state (23rd?) the "palestinians" have been emboldened to loudly declare A) they will not recognize a Jewish State B) they want their new state free of Jews and C) insist on flooding Israel with millions on refugees. In short, they will not settle for less than the destruction of Israel. What choice has Israel got but to defend itself and risk being accused of using "disproportionate" power? As if wars can be won otherwise. Thank you BHO for not only putting Israel in this position but also for screwing up the US's position and creating more disharmony on this planet. PS. If an enemy is intent on killing you, smite him before he gets the chance to do so. Plain logic!
3. NYT: Dear Bibi : Please committ suicide
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (09.21.11)
So Obama can be elected for a second term, NYT wants BIBI to put Israel in mortal danger for the Obama, who messed up America according to his plan, unleashed Islamists to rule Egypt, yet did not support the green revolution in Iran
4. Repeat after me,.....
Gideon Reader ,   USA   (09.21.11)
...this little phrase I learned from the Doilie Lamah. "Gornisht Helfen" bubeleh.
5. what is going on?
Ber ,   Yahud   (09.21.11)
The Israeli govt has became a branch of the Republican party in some ways. Strange times. Thank you for the support.
6. iron dome ready
wmd   (09.21.11)
7. @ 3 Norbus blame OBAMA ha ha ha
sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (09.21.11)
Bibi lost Egypt. Egypt shares a border with Israel. Israel could of sent tens of thousands of soldiers to break up the demonstrations that OBAMA had no control over of. If you haven't noticed there are protest all over the Middle East including Israel at one point. You can also blame Obama for the protest in Israel as well and the 100 percent tax your government puts on gasoline and "toothpaste" so every time you fill up your car with gas blame Obama for making you fill up BIBI's tank too.
8. External factors leave 1 option: BIG ISRAEL
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (09.21.11)
9. Hope Bibi isn't dumb enough to help Obama.
Chaim ,   Israel   (09.21.11)
Obama's impact on the U.S., Israel and the Free World is nothing short of disastrous. Most U.S. Presidents have at least one area of strength; sometimes it's the economy, sometimes foreign policy etc. However, in Obama's case it's all bad. Obama's Republican foes are, for the most part, good friends of both American and Israel. I hope Bibi isn't dumb enough to help Obama.
10. #7 I thought you were simple
Norbus ,   Jerusalem   (09.21.11)
You have to be crazy if you compare the social standard of living protest in Israel with the Arab upheavals. Arab spring my Tuchos; USA agitation more like. America is losing it helped by Obvama Educated middle class trying to draw attention to cost of housing. No blood spilt
11. bibi helps BHO then slammed by NYT
moron ,   galut   (09.21.11)
typical liberal hatchet job..did they want the funds for their pal friends or not? democrats have owned jewish vote just like black vote but have done nothing much time these groups of over and uinder priviledged both figure that by election in 90 years won by republicans and NYT world is view is spoiled--too bad--so sad!
12. A wise investment to insure US cuts all PA aid for UN bid
Dr. L. Brnd ,   San Diego, USA   (09.21.11)
It was a good move to appear conciliatory toward Obama and the PLO. Israel's hands are clean. So if Abbas follows through with his UN and unilateral statehood bid, Bibi is perfectly positioned to urge Congress to cut them off completely and make Obama look like the double crosser and ingrate if the White House tries to oppose it. Abbas was given his chance. So was Obama - now we'll see what he does with it.
