WASHINGTON—U.S. President Barack Obama, seeking to place the U.S. ahead of the political tumult sweeping the Middle East, promised support and economic assistance for democratic reformers and for the first time called for the creation of a Palestinian state based on Israel's pre-1967 borders.
This is my take on Obama's recent statements on the mid-east conflict:
Are you kidding me Obama! You have the audacity to tell Israel to roll back their borders to pre-1967. The Israeli people have spent blood, sweat and tears to obtain, defend and maintain every square inch of the property they now hold. Obama ought to be reminded that it was Egypt and Syria that provoked the war in 1967 against Israel. Please go to this link to review some history on the war:
If the Israeli army and air force would not have been proactive to quickly engage themselves against Egypt and Syria, they probably would have been decimated! The war plans of Egypt and Syria definitely back fired against them. Once again, they (Israel/Syria), provoked the war and thus in turn deserved to lose the 1967 war against Israel, including the ground they lost.
The aftermath are just the fortunes of war. NOTE: Obama and his staff need to go back to the drawing board and Obama ought to retract his recent ridiculous statements on what Israel should do!
