Middle East Crisis
Hillary Clinton Sent to Israel
Surprisingly, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton left Cambodia and flew to Jerusalem, Israel today to meet separately with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Isa El-Ayyat in Cairo. The leaders are meeting to attempt to bring about a diplomatic solution to this crisis and a cease fire between Israel and the Palestinians.
I said surprisingly because I don’t believe Hillary has been involved in any Middle East talks before. According to Wiki, “Obama appointed several Special Envoys including a Special Envoy for Middle East peace (George Mitchell) and a Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan (Richard C. Holbrooke).” Holbrooke died unexpectedly in 2010 and Mitchell resigned in 2011. Marc Grossman succeeded Holbrook, and Mitchell was succeeded by David Hale. Perhaps these men are also involved, but there is no mention of them.

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama
The Dictator in Chief at Work – Shoving another Ally under Obama’s proverbial bus! Now we are aligned with the PLO!
In Obama’s Middle East Speech one half ago…
Obama sides with the Palestinians over Israel! He called for the borders of Israel to be based on those from 1967! I bet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is thrilled to hear this since he is vehemently opposed to changing their borders to those from 1967. How will Congress react to this news? Will they stand for Israel against Obama’s new “foreign” policy? What will be the Israeli’s reaction to this news? The Prime Minister will be in the US to address Congress tomorrow.
