obbinThe following is via the Whitehouse:

“President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke again today by phone about the situation in Gaza. The President underscored the United States’ strong condemnation of Hamas’ rocket and tunnel attacks against Israel and reaffirmed Israel’s right to defend itself. The President also reiterated the United States’ serious and growing concern about the rising number of Palestinian civilian deaths and the loss of Israeli lives, as well as the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza.

“Building on Secretary Kerry’s efforts, the President made clear the strategic imperative of instituting an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities based on the November 2012 ceasefire agreement. The President reaffirmed the United States’ support for Egypt’s initiative, as well as regional and international coordination to end hostilities. The President underscored the enduring importance of ensuring Israel’s security, protecting civilians, alleviating Gaza’s humanitarian crisis, and enacting a sustainable ceasefire that both allows Palestinians in Gaza to lead normal lives and addresses Gaza’s long-term development and economic needs, while strengthening the Palestinian Authority. The President stressed the U.S. view that, ultimately, any lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must ensure the disarmament of terrorist groups and the demilitarization of Gaza.”

  1. Does Mr. Obama know who has not permitted all ceasefire attempts to take hold?

    Does he know that rocket fire hasn’t ceased all throughout?

    Does he know who has fired into the field hospital set up to treat the injured Gazans?

    Does he know who has bragged about buying more rockets from our dear friend ill-ung-pung-dung?

    Does he know which side has begged people to run and save themselves and which side has forbade the Gazan population to abide and thus spare their lives and those of their children – the next doir of terrorists?

    Perhaps he and Mrs. Michelle ought plan their upcoming vacation to Martha’s Vineyard and who gets which room!

  2. Three cheers for Obama Esq. The only question is who has his head buried deeper in the sand, Obama Esq. or Wanky Moon. Hasn’t Obama heard that Hamas has said that they will not demilitarize? Does he think that they mean “will not demilitarize” the same way as they mean “abide by a humanitarian respite”, i.e. do the exact opposite.

  3. We have a real problem with this statement. It is just another of many, many verbal utterances by Obama that has the value of the paper on which it is written. Bupkis!

    With the full knowledge that no terrorist (actually nearly any Muslim) cannot be permitted to have access to any form of weapon, and that if Gaza is to remain settled by Arabs, it will need to be demilitarized to the 100% level – he sent Kerry to offer $47 million. And just where will that money go? Same place as about $400 million that was already sent. Just check some of the articles posted here on YWN for the descriptions and video clips depicting the tunnel networks and the storehouses of weapons- all with Israel as the target for the violence, murder, and terror. Not a dollar went into developing infrastructure for a civilized nation.

    Obama cannot be trusted, and this conversation needed to take place only for the media to report that they have spoken. Meanwhile, Obama has not once condemned Hamas as a herd of brutal, uncivilized,and subhuman savages. He’s busy pitying them. What a shame he is wasting the position of US President to support terror.

    Dear Barry,
    Unlike you, I choose to protect my borders so that my people have the security that all people should have. I realize that your aim is to bring America down to the level of a third world country from whence you emanated but I differ with you in that respect.

    If you would like some advice in this matter, please call me in about two weeks as I am quite busy at the moment.

  5. Why can’t this man treat this crisis like he treats the Syrian/Iraq/Ukraine and all other world crisis just ignore like it’s not happening.

  6. See, Obama doesn’t even care about his own Country’s safety. He’s allowing illegals to overrun this Once great Nation. So this Neville Chamberlain of our time, should be ignored by Israel & Eygpt. Let the Kenyan sell his own Country down the river, NOT Israel!

  7. Hey Obumma, why don’t you come over here and see what’s going on for yourself. Visit Gaza and see who the terrorist are using for shields and see for yourself that Hamas is calling for a 24 hour ceasefire to suit their own needs and plans, not to help the civilians of Gaza. They will most likely break the ceasefire again, for the 6th time. Hamas couldn’t give a flying leap about civilians. These people are used for protection.
    It’s easy enough for you to sit in our plush office with your feet up on our desk talking on our phone telling the man protecting Israel what you want. You really don’t have a clue or even care about the needs and protection for the people and land of Israel.
    Why don’t you crawl back in your hole and play with your marbles, the ones that fell out of your head.

  8. So let Israel finish the job. Any ceasefire before Hamas is decimated will just allow them to rebuild their arsenal. Obama talks tough but his history shows it’s all smoke.

  9. HOW EXACTLY DOES OBAMA WANT TO HAVE GAZA DEMILITARIZED??? IS HE WILLING TO SEND IN US TROOPS TO AID IN GETTING THE JOB DONE QUICKER???? NO OTHER WAY IF HE WANTS IT DONE QUICKER…LET’S GET SOME CONCRETE DETAILS HOW HE PLANS TO GET THIS DONE…..

  10. They both know that demilitarization won’t happen if there’s an ‘unconditional’ cease fire. This is Obama’s way to strengthen Chamas and hurt the Jews as he was taught by Reverend Wright and ACORN. Netanyahu certainly knows obama is his enemy. Lets hope he has the strength to persevere.
    I would not be surprised to see obama send troops to ‘save’ the Palestinians.

  11. Has Obama been following the news lately? Oh -no he’s been playing golf – I forgot about that.
    They tried ceasefires already! Israel ceased while hamas continued to fire! What is Israel supposed to do for goodness sake? Give me a break! I’m sick of this already!

  12. Is he just a total idiot or am I missing something here? What does he want Israel to do?? They fire rockets from schools & hospitals & use apt buildings as headquarters. You can’t on the one hand “reaffirm” israels right to defend itself & on the other hand say your “very concerned” about growing civilian casualties. Those 2 statements are contradictory. Must be a total moron.

  13. “Unconditional”.. “Ceasefire which provides economic needs”… “Ensures the demilitarization of Gaza”…

    Those are conditions. Hardly unconditional.

  14. It’s obvious whose side he is on. You should read the comments on the News blogs. He sold this country to the Mexicans and now he wants to sell out Israel.

  15. what is the big shayleh here, obamah is doing the same thing that the us, england, and the rest of the world did in wwII, nothing. just you don’t get into the news unless you also say something stupid.

  16. “any lasting solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict must ensure the disarmament of terrorist groups and the demilitarization of Gaza.”

    I do not understand what the problem with this is.

    I should note that as the result of Obama’s proposing this, a senior Hamas official has threatened Obama’s life in a Facebook post.

  17. “Husein Obama, John Kerry and charliehall are on the side of hamas.”

    While you all have been doing Hamas’ work, dividing Israel from its allies, I’ve been defending Israel on the left wing site dailykos.com from the slanders put out by its enemies. I’ve also pointed out to the consternation of the evil ones there that Progressive heroes Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Alan Grayson are all pro-Israel. They are pro-Israel BECAUSE they are from the left. The people who are attacking Israel on that site are PINO — Progressive in Name Only, supporting theocratic terrorists.

    And for getting no end of attacks from Israel’s enemies there I get no end of attacks from Israel’s so-called friends here.

  18. No, Anon21, they are not contradictory. You can be very concerned about civilian casualties but understand that there is a cost to Israel defending itself. The problem is when you are more concerned about a terrorist organization that sacrifices civilians than about a civilized nation state’s right to defend its citizens.

  19. 1) We are limited to knowing that which the press reports. Often worded to maximize emotion and effect. Not report news but contribute to it’s making
    2) the US is “run” far more by congress-senate then by president. Not to under estimate his authority or influence which is concentrated in one person and his advisors
    3) if we truly believe that it is sinat chinam that keeps us in golus. (Mshuvad to the nations) then our real enemy is defined.
    4) unity in peace is far more important than in times of war. Even the cursory review of shoftim will reveal the results of national teshuva
    5) I must work harder to support Torah, seek out the widow and the orphan or the sick to help. To create jobs and provide tzedaka for those in need.
    6) to reach out and fill my home with guests for shabbos. To make shabbos the greatest joy and not a prison day of things I can’t do.
    7) I must think of the world as Jews and non-Jews. Loving without cause or judgement of hats or complexion the former and treating with kindness and respect the latter
    8) I must be there to rescue the tinuk shnishba by example of who we are
    9) I must realize that gmilus chasadim will restore the avodah and that avoda will bring forth the Torah. NOT from Har Sinai but from Zion as foretold
    10) I must serve Hashem in all that I do with joy

    Some of us have the precious gift of learning full time, some part time while supporting Torah institutions, some work and support Torah.

    So too some are in the tzivos Hashem and go out to milchoma. Some go in to pray and to learn. This is our way. All are needed. The lesson of the arba minnim is not once a year. It’s a lifetime.

    Please please my people let us return to Hashem not as a fragmented nation but united in causeless love as defined by Torah. We the people must unite so the leaders will unite with singular purpose as above.

    Everything else no matter how frightening is external to our beings.

    It is NOT any other nation to whom we are accountable. We are accountable to each other and to Hashem. I am starting with myself.

    Every wound, tear or pain is not them it’s the greater we. I must do all I can to achieve that which Hashem expects of His nation.

  20. What are you all expecting from a person with the name Mubarak Hussein Obama. It’s a shame we have the leader of hamas working in the white house. I don’t feel safe in the USA anymore. We need to all join rallies to support Israel just like these monkeys all over the world. We need the Israelis to know we are on their side and we need Americans to know the truth of what’s really going on there. Trust me CNN doesn’t quite tell it how it is. AM Yisrael Hai!!

  21. Charliehall, stop feeding us your snake-oil on this forum. Every honest intelligent person can see that Husain Oabama (YM) wants to preserve Hamas so they continue killing more Yiden. With your progressive Boslshevik friends we do not need enemies.

  22. You may fundamentally disagree with obama or charlie hall (in this case) but the way many of you voice your opinions resonate from childish behavior and lack of intelect. Calling a president names or making fun of him personally reflects the babyishness of the writer.
