Hillary Launches Israeli-Palestinian Talks

From a memory challenged McClatchy:

Hillary Clinton launches Israeli-Palestinian peace talks

By Warren P. Strobel, McClatchy Newspapers Thu Sep 2, 2010

WASHINGTON — Israelis and Palestinians on Thursday opened their first direct peace negotiations in 20 months, a long-shot attempt to end the conflict that host Secretary of State Hillary Clinton acknowledged is burdened by history and bitter disputes.

"We’ve been here before, and we know how difficult the road ahead will be," Clinton said, flanked by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in the State Department’s ornate Benjamin Franklin Room .

The two men and President Barack Obama have set a highly ambitious one-year timetable to solve long-intractable disputes over the borders of a Palestinian state, Jewish settlements in the West Bank , the fate of Palestinian refugees and other issues.

The talks face a potential crisis point in little more than three weeks, when Netanyahu’s moratorium on new settlement construction expires. Abbas, backed by Arab nations, says he’ll abandon the talks if Israel resumes settlement construction…

Notice that the same United States that is for building a mosque at ‘ground zero,’ opposes Israeli building houses on their own land. Because it might not be sensitive to the Palestinians.

In any case, can there be any doubt that Mrs. Clinton will finally bring peace to that trouble part of the world?

Mrs. Clinton holds the historic teapot she received at a photo op during her husband’s visit to Belfast Northern Ireland.

Look at how she solved the ‘troubles’ in Northern Ireland.

Just by having a tea party. (Small t, small p.)

    Remember, she was for Hillary-care before she was for Obama-care.

    And how, exactly, did a non-functioning member of our government, as mere first lady, get a motion carried in Congress to get Hillary-care started, to begin with? All this before she was a senator?

    And, mind you, there is now one ad to promote Hitlery for prez in 2012….started by one disillusioned dentist. http://michellemalkin.com/2010/09/02/first-hillary-for-president-in-2012-ad-hits-the-airwaves/

    I guess a stupid socialist remains firm that the “right people” need to implement socialism in this nation and the “wrong people” are “doing it wrong”.

    Election season.

    Time for Democrats to make peace in the Middle East again.

    Luckily for them, peace seems to disappear shortly after their noble efforts bring stability to the region once again.

    Oh dear, stupid me. Here I thought The Won that was born in two Hawaiian and one Kenyan hospital could bring peace to Jerusalem the same way he said he could lower sea levels. After all, isn’t he The One we’re all supposed to be waiting for? If you can’t believe what Oprah and The Won says – who can we believe?

    God referred to Jerusalem as cup of trembling:

    Zech 2:12 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

    Luke 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is near.

    Why does Isreal continue to give in to these people. They want to drive them into the ocean. From what I understand Palestine never existed in the first place, why is any credence ever given to this bunch of anti-semites.

    They literally made it up in order to allow Muslims the ability to destroy the Biblical homeland of Jewish people. I feel terribly sorry for Isreal because they are now totally against the tide with this administration.

    This leads me to another situation about Jewish people that I find hard to understand and that’s their ignorance to continue to vote for Democrats in greater numbers than Republicans. Jewish folks have been suckered into voting this way similar to the way Black folks continue to believe that somehow getting government goodies is the only way to prosperity.

  5. AmericanIPA says:

    These silly lefties and their time-wasting Israeli/Palestinian “peace talks”. Every couple of years we get the same old thing, renamed and repackaged and it all turns out the same.

    Why not do something less painful and more productive and just slam your hands in a car door repeatedly? And Hillary, you can slam your face instead of hands.
