1967: A Critical Year For Obama’s Presidency

American presidents have, with rare exception, spoken of Israel with biblical reverence.

If anything, the language has only gotten more pro-Israel with each successive White House administration since Harry Truman made the United States the first country to recognize Israel’s independence in 1948.

I totally disagree! Hilary Clinton and the Congress had to reiterate the U.S.' support of Israel after the first visit by Netanyahu. Also, to go back to Israel's 1967 borders is proof that President Obama either knows nothing about the history of Israel or he doesn't care about what he does know. He is more anti-Israel than Carter was. Already, due to his anti-Israel speech, he has lost the vast majority of the liberal Jewish voters. Its one thing to want a two state solution but its another thing to suggest Israel go back to borders that made them vulnerable to attack and which is why the borders changed in the first place due to Israel gaining victory over her enemies.

Interesting that Israel forcibly removed their Jewish citizens from the Gaza Strip hoping that would bring peace and yet they get rockets fired from that area daily. Sure, the Palestinians want peace. So do the Jews. Those Palestinians that live in Jerusalem do not want to live in a Palestinian state with terrorists at the helm-they aren't stupid-they know Israel treats them far better than the Hamas would.
