    Interesting position considering that Israel is an ally. Israel is a legally established state and the PA is a terrorist insurgency. How hard is that for people to understand?

    Israelis were caught dancing, too on 9/11 - right next to a white van they had positioned in New Jersey, directly across from the Twin Towers. They had set up video cameras and had even photographed themselves "high-fiving" each other in front of the wreckage in the background.

    Oh and don't forget what Ben had to say:

    "It's very good."
    - Current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, when asked what the 9/11 attacks means for relations between the US and Israel, quoted in the New York Times, September 12, 2001

    Israel was the only country in the Middle East that flew all flags at half staff in mourning of 9/11.

    Arab Muslim dogs danced and cheered. Allah Akbar.

    This, of course, is not true. From the beginning, the Obama administration's ham fisted Israeli-Arab policy has strongly favored the Arab positions. In his Cairo speech, Obama repeated arguments used to question the legitimacy of the state of Israel when he claimed the UN had only created Israel because of emotions created by the Holocaust and he called all Israeli settlements illegitimate, including Jewish neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Israel's Capital, as "settlements".

    Obama's appointment of George Mitchell as his special envoy has to be seen as a deliberate slap in the face to Israel. In 2000, Clinton was forced to recall Mitchell from the area because he had so offended the Israeli government that Ehud Barak, then PM and now DM, had ordered the Israeli government not to talk to Mitchell with the result that not only would no one in the government meet with him but they also stopped returning his calls.

    In case anyone still didn't understand the Obama administration's determination to create a hostile international environment for Israel, Obama told Abbas that he would bring down the Netanyahu government and help to install one more favorable to the Arab positions, thus leading to Abbas' hardline positions and his refusal to enter into direct talks with the Israeli government.

    The Obama administration cannot at once support partisan positions on the issues and claim to be an honest broker in mediating talks between Israel and the Arabs. If these talks were to be taken seriously at all, it was necessary for Israel to first respond to Obama's provocative words and actions and to confront his strongly pro Arab positions on the Issues before dealing with the PA. Seen in this context, Biden's petulantly late arrival for dinner with the Netanyahus and his outrageous condemnation of Israel's announcement of new building permits in its Capital is just a continuation of the Obama administration's pro Arab attitudes and positions.
