Though many expected him to deliver a more measured response in the wake of last week’s very public row with the United States, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered another angry rebuke to the Obama Administration over the settlement expansion which stalled the US brokered indirect peace talks.
Netanyahu declared that the settlements in occupied East Jerusalem weren’t technically settlements at all, because “everyone knows” that Jerusalem will be the eternal and undivided capital of Israel. Israel invaded and occupied East Jerusalem in 1967, along with the rest of the West Bank, and its legal control over the territory has never been established in international law.
But this did not stop Netanyahu from declaring that Israel had been “unjustly accused of not wanting peace” because of the settlement expansion, which killed the peace talks. Netanyahu insisted that his government has consistently shown a commitment to peace “from day one” and that it was only the Palestinians who were holding up the process.
Despite Netanyahu’s claims, many members of his right-far-right coalition government have been outspoken opponents of any peace process, not the least of which being the nation’s top diplomat, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who has repeatedly said that peace talks will never accomplish anything and that Israel must never agree to any territorial concessions to the Palestinians. The settlement announcement was made by another opponent of the peace process, Interior Minister Eli Yishai, and appears to have been timed to do as much damage to the prospective talks as possible.

Why ask Obama when there are so many in Congress with prior experience in this area?
Netanyahu and the settlers will drag Israel, the world's Jewish community and the United States into the abyss just so they can stay in power. If ever there was an existential threat to Israel it is Benjamin Netanyahu and the settlers.
Bingo! I'm an American and a Jew, and you've hit the bulls eye regarding the danger to the rest of us.
It's astonishing to me that the Zionist criminals (Likudniks and their American fellow travelers at AIPAC and related tentacles) are so confident of their position and so contemptuous of the 350 million non-Jewish Americans that they would arrogantly and brazenly celebrate their subversion of the US govt. The notion that the "special relationship" may at some point be seen for what it is — utterly abusive, essentially the relationship of a dim-witted prostitute to her abusive pimp — and will inevitably provoke a violent reaction, is seemingly beyond the Zionist's capacity to imagine.
I believe we are witnessing in modern times the pattern of behavior that lies behind 5000 years of ant-Jewish reaction: criminals among the Jewish political class rise to power, exploit the immense talent, resources, and protective loyalty of the larger Jewish community, and then, emboldened and incapable of empathy, openly expand their predation until inevitably, they provoke the reaction that victimizes the rest of us, Jews and non-Jews alike.
Just letting the American people know who is in charge and who determines their destiny.
It was the Arabs who invaded Israel in 1967, not the other way around. Israel's prime minister at the time begged King Hussein not to join Egypt and Syria, but he did. And he lost. The area Israel conquered belonged to Jordan. Not the "Palestinians". Don't blame everything on the Jews. They are not the ones blowing up innocent people all over the world. Coomon guys, be fair.
Now tell us who the invaders were in 1948 and causing trouble ever since.
Israel had hacked into phone line between Nasser and King Hussien during 1967 war and scrambled in real time the crux of the conversation to have Hussien hear that Egypt had repulsed the Israeli Pearl harbor sneak attack and that Jordan should join the fight.
Israel begging Hussien not join the fight was for show and part of the grand deception.Furthermore Israel's attack on unarmed American ship USS Liberty during that war is another unholy part of the Israel grand scheme that was never fully addressed.
34 Americans were killed,171 wounded as IDF had just executed Egyptian POW's in captured coastal town of El Arish.
IDF recon. Shaked unit commanded by future MK Benyamin Eliezar is accused of carring out the massacre of unarmed Egyptian soldiers that had surrenderd.
The Israeli enterprise was always an expansionist one.Israel's previous 1956 attack on Egypt was prelude for 1967 Israeli war.Lebanon Litani river was what Israel was lusting after since it's inception.Land and water without indiegenous poulations is what Israel craves above all.
The pretexts are transperant save for fools that cannot connect the dots.
Hasbara propaganda, or a Kool-aid drinker's view of the world . Typically lame.
The Brits and Zionists colluded — 1917-1939 — in the THEFT of Palestine. In 1948 the rest of the world, through the UN, signed off on the crime. The Zionists then attacked, murdered, and drove out 800,000 of the ***UNARMED*** Palestinians and STOLE everything that had belonged to them. Then in 1967 the Zionist criminals attacked again, this time taking the rest of Mandate Palestine. At each and every juncture the Palestinians and the greater Arab community has acted in legitimate self-defense against an unrelenting Zionist criminal onslaught supported by Western governments — in particular the US — in thrall to domestic Zionist fellow travelers and their hoodwinked communities.
Truth's a bitch, especially if you keep it cooped up long enough to provoke a reaction.
Oh, by the way, I'm an American and a Jew.
YOU LIE!!! REMEMBER THE LIBERTY!!
Get your facts right. The Israeli's launched a preemptive attack.
On June 5, 1967, Israel launched a preemptive attack
The arrogance of Netanyahu knows no bounds. With his pack of funders to hold his back he bites the hand that feeds him.
The show goes on.
lapdog : master :: US : Israel
If you keep saying black is not black a few million times, people will believe you
We now know that there is such a thing as 'reincarnation' – Hitler has come back in Netanyahu!
If its possible for an entire country to suffer from mental illness it is obvious that Israel and the US populations have massive levels of narcissistic personality disorder. Judaism in Israel and the US is a narcissistic cult of capitalists whose greed may be the greatest in the history of the human race. Yes they will do anything to stay in power and yes they will do anything they want to make money, including and especially murder hundreds of thousands of innocent men women and children (particularly those who are Muslim. It is sick and it could lead to WWIII. I doubt Russian and China will sit quietly while the large Middle Eastern energy reserves are put into question by a country with fewer people than live in New York City, Moscow or Beijing.
" Everything is rational in capitalism, except capital or capitalism itself. The stock market is certainly rational; one can understand it, study it, capitalists know how to use it, and yet it is completely delirious, it is mad…"
Now this is really good news. The BBC is reporting today that the UK is planning to expel an israhell diplomat over the use of 12 forged British passports by the killers of a Hamas leader in Dubai.
Will the US follow suit?
Probably not. American passports weren't used by the Israeli assassins in Dubai.
Could anybody find the picture of Hitler that has the same facial expression, and post it side by side with the picture of Netenyahoo? The similarity is uncanny!
sorry,really" not sorry-?pirate!
Israel won the post '67 borders fair and square in a war for its very existence. This is just a bunch of BS for what's to come if Israel ever relinquished those lands… another attempt at a 2nd Sho'ah.
Even then if Israel won the '67 borders after another war, you'd still here the same demands to give them back.
israel never won anything fair and square. Give everyone the same toys and you'll see what I mean. And when war ends armies leave, the land doesn't become the victor's.
GREAT, BI BI YOU HAVE CONFUSED ME.
USA SUPER POWER OR A SUPER SLAVE ?
Why is this demented liar still getting my tax money? And I gotta say, if you pick a little guy up and he slaps your face you’re a fool to keep supporting him. Drop him now! Not one more dime to Israel!
Bibi is just a clown in the sorry circus that includes Obama and Ms. Piggy Clinton.
The issue isn't Jews or peace. The issue is corruption of the executive and legislative
branches of the US gov't. The Israel Lobby (mostly non-Jews) calls the shots because it signs the checks. Until the US public demands the prosecution and jailing of the Israel Lobby for bribery,
this pathertic political pornography will continue–i.e., we will continue to see the fice hump the Great Dane.
Israel is constantly stealing the Palestinan land and undermining the US credibility in the world. Now you know who the real terrorists are!!!
2-At the same time one needs to know that it was the US spy agencies who helped Israel to win the 1967 war, but that is not a question.. Israel become today’s Israel because of the Europeans and US government helped it to steal the Arabs land, 1967 war was one of those time. Zionism and Imperialism have an agenda in common, dominate the world under the dictatorial leadership of Zionism with help of US militarism.
To make this arrogant Netanyahu understand that his country's exsitance depends on our hard earn tax dollars freely given to them, America should shut off the funding to Israel and let the world Jews pick up the tab. the we will see how far the go to insult and bite the hand that feeds them.
the prescadent being Cuba,yet that even opens more " worms
I think the USA should just let the firebrand stand on it's own two legs…
NO MORE MONEY israel… and weapons either
I think most of us should write a letter demanding the US and the EU governments to start a economic and polutical sanction against Israel, because this is the only langauge the government of Israel will ever understand. If we dont do that than we.., most of us.., just talking while AIPAC is working hard to get the bilions upon bilions for Israel out of US people pocket.
Based on many of the comments I see here I would have to say that Nazism is alive and well today.
I see you like to label things said about Israel in a negative light as Nazism. Using those trigger words indicates that you are the one not holding an independent view. Rather, you are the one holding the prejudices against anyone who speaks out against Israel. Rather than comment on the article, you take your shot at the people who took the time to speak out on the article. The truth hurts, I know.
Dear Mr. Netanyahu,
I am pleased to see you as the Prime Minister of Israel again, I remember when you were the Prime Minister before, I have always liked and respected you. Unfortunately my country elected a very dangerous man named Obama, it's obvious he has no clue about foreign affairs, it's obvious he has no clue how important Israel is to the United States of America, it's obvious he does not realize who our enemy's are. I just wanted to take a moment so to tell you to do whatever you have to do to protect your country, most Americans like me are behind you, no matter what our uneducated President today is saying. May god bless you, and may god bless Israel, thank you for your time.
