By way of Ted Belman at Israpundit, we learn that Obama has demanded a timetable for an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria. Yori Yanover, JEWISH PRESS:
In anticipation of U.S. President Barack Obama visit to Israel at the end of this month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering a significant package of gestures to the Palestinians, Maariv reports. The security system has submitted to Netanyahu its recommendations for goodwill gestures, with the stated proviso that these would not endanger the PM’s own political future.
Sources in Netanyahu’s circle explained that the gestures are of a political nature, intended to ease the hardships the Palestinian Authority is facing, generating a positive public image for Israel at a relatively low political cost.
As it has always been... Land for "peace" - or hate, as the case may be - and prisoner releases. I hope and pray this is not true.
And by the way, I urge a healthy dose of skepticism when it comes to the bit about Obama's "demand" that Israel provide him with a timetable for Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria. The source is something called "the World Tribune." Nobody asks, "What the heck is that, anyway?" You would think, that with something as important as the fate of Jews in the disputed terrortories, journalists would need a known, reliable source, but these days everyone's just looking to post a provocative, controversial headline for the internet traffic it brings, regardless of any cost to the truth. Call me old-fashioned, but that's how it seems...
