And I suppose it was Obama who ordered the thunder storm that started soaking Israel now? The one that was forecast earlier this week to continue through Sunday? Could it be that this is simply a bad weekend for a ground operation?
2. If Israel weren't pussyfooting with Hamas all of it
ab   (11.22.12)
would be unneccessary,i.e. elevating the MB and letting Hamas dictate terms like abolishing Gaza-Israel borders for Gazans
3. Obama & truce
Greg ,   Davis United States   (11.22.12)
He has done nothing but avoid dedication to Israel. As an American that is pro-Israel, Obama is worthless for Israel; Romney would be better!
4. HOWZABOUT,............
Gideon Reader   (11.22.12)
P-resident ZerObama should have been working to have the **aggressors** in the latest edition of Middle East Kabuki quit their random murderous assault, rather than putting pressure on Netanyahu to resolve the action. Sort of like blaming the victim of rape for being so durned cute. And Adon benHorin; does it not get embarrasing kissing up to Obama so much? Remember to get the lip balm.
5. Quid pro Quo
David ,   Montpelier USA   (11.22.12)
Obama to Bibi: cease fire now Iran to be dealt with next, promide. Bibi: thank you Mr. President.
6. What about the firepower the US is sending now?
SD Charger ,   San Diego   (11.22.12)
I heard a report that the US is sending several warships to the region. Perhaps, they are either for the next round with Gaza AND Egypt, or they now have their sites on Iran? Much more to this cease-fire then told by this author. Think for a second people. Do you really believe Bibi would allow anyone to strike Israel without repercussions? He allows Obama to voice his opinion, as he should since we are allies, but when it comes down to it, NO ONE will dictate to Israel what is best for their country, as it should be. The situation is real, Israeli's have died and Bibi won't allow Israel to suffer more then it has too, even if a truce makes him look politically weak. He knows what he is doing, probably one of the smartest negotiators and leaders in the world when it comes to defending your country. We will all watch to see how long Hamas will show restraint. The line has been drawn in the sand and it is now up to them to come to reality.
7. Has Israel become a USA colony?

8. Balance&peace ONLY via SECURE BIG ISRAEL and Arab TRANSFER.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (11.23.12)
9. Obama is the Israeli Military Comander!
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (11.23.12)
A Strategic and Tacktical Military Fool and Idiot. The Israeli PM seems no better. They bouth seems to be Useful Idiots only. Arn.Sweden.
10. No disease is worse than self-delusion
Daniel ,   Beer Sheva   (11.23.12)
and we are and always have been an extremely sick people. The brotherhood is clear, there is no place for jews in this wolrd. We may want to ignore this to live in a short-term bubble, but it will hit us sooner rather than later.
11. No Pressure on Netanyahu
Mark of Lewiston ,   USA   (11.23.12)
Netanyahu in the White House told the US President to essentially get effed on national TV in the US. Any pressure Netanyahu felt was self-generated. This entire battle from start to finish was Netanyahu's idea. He used Obama for his ends, not the other way around.
12. to 6 - On the Way Home Again
Mark of Lewiston ,   USA   (11.23.12)
Only the Iwo Jima is still in the Med. Carrier and Assault ship locations are posted online at the USN website. Hiding a carrier is nigh on impossible.
