"Is Obama taking on Israel"
Interesting article by Justin Raimondo on the website
antiwar.com on this subject. A couple of quotes -
"Asst. Secretary of State Rose Gottemoella's surprise
announcement that the US would like every nation -
including Israel - to sign the nuclear non-prolification treaty sent shockwaves from Tel Aviv to Brooklyn ..."
"This bombshell announcement - that the US is openly
calling for the Isaraelis, along with the North Koreans,
to join the rest of humanity in containing the spread
of nuclear weapons will hit US-Israeli relations with
the force of a tsunami.."
"If Obama follows through on this one - and I have
my doubts - it will truly mean an end to the 'special
relationship' or, more accurately, the surrent Israeli
interpretation of the terms of that relationship."
Something new is brewing in regard to Middle East
relations, with a recent speech by Joe Biden (setting
the pace) - the visit of Netanyahu to the Whitehouse,
scheduled for Monday 18th May, followed by other
Palestinian and Egyptian leaders during his month.
After which Obama will go to Cairo and make a
speech from there in June.
Tony Blair, envoy for the Middle East Quartet, says
a new peace plan is being worked on by the
Quartet in association with the Whitehouse.
I put up this information because my stance is
that I pray for these meetings as they occur,
and believe we can all make a difference by
sending love and light to all engaged.
(p.s. - This link came from the notorious "What
does it mean" website. Yes, it is useful for links!
I have been unable to find the article through
www.antiwar.com - but it can be accessed
via the article
"Savage Battle in Iraq Targets US House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi.." - click on "all-out assault" (against
the powerful Israeli lobby) 6th par. down.)
Apologies for convoluted instructions!
