1. Israel abuses "Summits" to bomb, hiding behind superpowers
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (03.03.14)
2. American Foreign Policy Fading Badly
Syria is lost. Abbas not prepared to commit to Kerry Plan as there is no support fbr it by the majority of Palestinians. Iran negotiations a smokescreen for headlong rush development to Iranian Nuclear weapons and ballistic missile capability. USA credibility and deterrence impact dismantled by Ukranian crisis. Europeans divided amongst themselves, and yet Obama and Kerry idealistically want Netanyahu to sign up. Even if it is close the right right agreement for Abbas and Netanyahu it is clearly the wrong time and it is pointless signing up to an agreement which wont work or be worth the paper it is written on. Better save it for a more auspicious time when there is support for it and credible belief and confidence in USA foreign policy which is sorely lacking at the present time.USA needs to start showing authority and confidence with Iran , Ukraine, Syria, etc.
3. Obama, take your willing partner Abbas and

SHOVE him !
4. Ntetanyahu and Obama do the tango
Ian ,   Newcastle upon Tyne   (03.03.14)
Takes 3 to tango? Is Netanyahu or Obama gripping Abbas between his teeth? THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
5. 1 what do you think about christian exodus in arab world?
6. 1 Jihadis killed 30 chinese with samurai swords this weekend
7. Reality of Palestinian State
Zechariah   (03.03.14)
In Fifty Percent of Judae and Samariah and Three Thousand square kilometres of Islamic Israel the Palestinians can Live but only Palestinians who can live in peace with there Jewish neighbours no room for Holocaust Deniers Islamic Califate and Fatah Bath Clones.Massive Security Presence in The Jordan Valley and Judae and Samaria but no money available for settlement construction beyond that that creates Employment for Palestinians.The Money ought go Security and The Social Gap.
8. Every disaster is possible unless good people stop it.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.03.14)
The monstrous Two State Final Solution, like every disaster, is possible. That is why good people must be very assertive, vigilant and passionate-to assure it never occurs.
9. History shows, Russia abuses "Summits" to attack neighbors
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (03.03.14)
10. I demand BDS, UNSC, ICC, NATO, US GI's for Russia

11. Obama is totally clueless...
Malone ,   Hfx   (03.03.14)
..must be hard to negotate with an idiot!
12.  #10, memory
Beary White ,   Norway   (03.03.14)
The story tells the US/Sotero acted the same way against Libya as Russia do now against Ukraine, seen from a Russian point of view. Looks like you do not like the islamic-cult-followers being deported to Siberia?? :-)
13. Taking Shimon Peres with him would be better. Less ice cream
Michael ,   California, USA   (03.03.14)
Well, the best Bibi can do is to be silent as much as possible and listen intensely. He is being presented with many good ideas in the U.S., by well educated people. One of the things Netanyahu will be told is that his way into history books is through signing a peace agreement with Abbas, not through eating ice cream or paying an exorbitant hotel price. Shimon Peres could have told him this.
14. Obama vs Abbas
Obama, who was wrong about Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Afghanistan, and Egypt says that a two state solution is possible. Abbas says that a two state solution is possible only if both states are Arab. Who is right?
15. #13. Like it got Chamberlain into history books.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.04.14)
First of all, Bibi will be in history books because he is Israel's P.M. So much for your inanity about getting Bibi into history books. Chamberlain got into history books by signing a "peace deal" with Hitler. It made him loathed forever. As would any Israeli P.M. who signs a disastrous "peace deal" with Holocaust denying mass murderer Abbas
16. On the very day Putin is handing Obama his head
Al   (03.04.14)
Obama shows that when it comes to Israel, he's got balls. Hilarious! What Israel has to do is look interested, (wink wink yawn) while telling themselves that America today is a nothing. Play nice smile for the cameras and go home. Obama is up to his eyeballs with trouble with Russia.
17. The only thing that Bibi has to remember
A ,   Belgium   (03.04.14)
when dealing with the incompetent falure Oblabla is the one-word answer of a true Likud predecessor who, when forced to deal with a different incompetent U.S. president, answered every demand with..."NO". (to quote the late, great Itzhak Shamir)
18. no. 13, clueless, nothing you have ever posted makes sense
19. Mr. President...
milwaukeebroad ,   Haifa, Israel   (03.04.14)
...the day the US accepts a two-state solution with Native-Americans will be the day Israel is willing to accept a two-state solution with the Palestinians. Shall we?

21. Why does Obama always cross his legs...
Malone ,   Hfx   (03.04.14) a woman? Missing something possibly?
22. #9, 10, not mine.

23. #13
Anshel ,   Canada   (03.04.14)
Well educated doesn't mean that they are also intelligent, the evidence is before us: Benghazi, Worthless Red line in Syria, caving to Iran and now being outsmarted by Putin in Ukraine. Beside, USA is not living up their obligation under the 1994 Budapest memorandum. USA, Great Britain and Russia guaranteed the security and the territorial integrity of Ukraine, for giving up the atomic bomb, inherited in from he Soviet Union. These treaty is no different form the security guarantee given to Czechoslovakia by Great Britain, France and Soviet Union. We all know what happened in Munich 1938. This is why, Israel should not ever contract the security to USA and countries of Europe. Never! I believe that Netanyahu understands the tragical events caused by treaties that were not worth the paper written. So your advise in ill placed and would have tragical consequences for the Jewish people. Just remember, it was not the democrats who gave more freedom to the American Jews in the sixties, it was the respect earned by the state of Israel. (Jewish quotas at Yale, etc, no membership in prestigious clubs...)
24. Don't trust our traitorous liar in the white house.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles   (03.04.14)
25. no. 22 - clearly so because they are true unlike yours
26. #2 NO
Every day that goes by means that Israel steals more land to build on, more water and resources. We are not stupid. The more you delay a 2 State solution, or having to settle boudaries, means the more chances you have to drive Palestinians and Bedoins out unti l all the West Bank and Gaza and Golan is totally owned and occupied by jews. That is your master plan, isn't it.
27. # 22 Will the real Steve stand up?
BUILD BABY BUILD!!!! ,   United States   (03.04.14)
the other one lacks your humor and wit. BUILDING AND ARE WE BUSY!!!
28. #23, History does not have to repeat itself.
Michael ,   California, USA   (03.04.14)
Keep in mind that the peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan are holding up well, were brokered by the US, and are well supported. There are risks, always, but when there are peace agreements among countries, the risks are lesser.
29. Differences Filled International Forces
Zircon   (03.04.14)
Fifteen hundred square miles of. Judae and Samaria separate the Core central Palestinian Stance and the Core Central Israel stance on Judea and Samariah .Thats sixty percent versus Eight five percent of Six thousand Square kilometres of Judea and Samariah .An interim International Armed Force of USA NATO and ExIDF needs to fill the Gap to maintain A secure situation in the Interim ?The Land swap with Islamic Israel Strongly observed would vary from fifteen hundred to three thousand square miles of The Arab Tringle and Shale oil rock Bedoin Lands .
30. To: No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (03.04.14)
Do you seriously mean to suggest that Netanyahu should sit quietly and swallow the bilge that spews forth from Obama? Netanyahu is not there to be lectured -- least of all by the obnoxiously arrogant bumbler-in-chief of the United States.
