Appeasing Israel - At What Cost?
By Jeff Gates
Barack Hussein Obama's June 4th speech in Cairo was awaited with keen anticipation by a global population of 1.3 billion Muslims outraged at the abuse that Zionism has long inflicted on its neighbors-with U.S. support. Ten weeks have since passed. The potentially positive impact of his remarks was immediately offset when he appeared the next day at the Buchenwald death camp in Germany. The timing of that Holocaust photo-op resolved all doubts about who stage-manages this presidency.
Media attention immediately shifted back to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In the lead-up to the Cairo speech, Obama's White House handlers enabled this right-winger to proclaim-from the White House-that peace with the Palestinians ranked a distant second to Tel Aviv's concerns about Iran. Soon after the Cairo speech, Netanyahu reluctantly referenced a "two state solution"-though only under duress from Middle East envoy George Mitchell. Obama quickly portrayed as an "important step forward" this grudging referral to an agreed-to strategy.
In truth, Netanyahu announced several giant steps backward. Rather than agree to negotiate a two state solution, he set preconditions certain to preclude two states, leaving nothing to negotiate. Again negating the potentially positive impact from Cairo, Obama praised the Israeli leader even as he insisted that Palestinians recognize Israel as a "Jewish state" where Jerusalem as "Israel's capital will remain united."
Netanyahu also insisted on Israel's right to colonize even more Palestinian land by expanding the very settlements destined to preclude a viable Palestinian state. By applauding this defiant speech, Obama inflamed the very conditions that have precluded peace in the Middle East for more than six decades. In the ensuing ten weeks, Netanyahu's stance has only further hardened-with Obama's tacit approval.
