Obama says Palestinians have a right to self-determination and justice that must be recognized. He says it's not fair when violence by Israeli settlers against Palestinians goes unpunished and that it's wrong to restrict Palestinians' ability to move freely or farm on their land.
Yeah, that's an objective and fair analysis implying ONLY Israelis should be punished...
Maybe he needs to meet with the Arab nations and ask them why they rejected the UN's resolution for Palestine to have it's own territory back in 1947.
Or talk to the parents of the children killed in The Ma'alot massacre in 1974 when armed Palestinian terrorists held Netiv Meir Elementary School hostage for two days killing 22 children with grenades and automatic weapons and injuring 68 more.
I'm sure Israelis haven't forgotten even if he has.
Please stop talking about that of which you know nothing. You make a fool of yourself.

The United Nations resolution of 1947 recommended partition and establishment of two separate states for Jews and Palestinians that was subverted by the Arab world. Had they agreed, there would have been no refugee problem.
Jewish leaders agreed to the resolution. Arab nations and Palestinian Authority rejected it.
Is anyone getting this?
No, sweetie, they want to hear about how hubby beats you with the gas can from his model airplane before forcing you down on the unbalanced washing machine with his golfing togs in it and set on perpetual spin cycle!

Jefferson County School spokeswoman Lynn Setzer confirmed that Ebel only went to high school for a month in 1999, from September 2nd to October 18th. Sources say that in elementary school he was in a Severely Impacted Special Education Program.


Ryan Arci, who ran around in some of the same circles with Ebel, remembers his as “as a dark kid, depressed. His walls in his room were black and his windows were blacked out.” Ebel’s friends say he had a tattoo across his back that said “Hopeless.” He sometimes signed his letters from jail,“Evil Evan.”

Jack Ebel, Evan’s father, is a well-respected Denver oil and gas lawyer. He told his son’s friends that he was going to dedicate the rest of his life to helping Evan. Just two years ago, Jack Ebel testified in front of the Colorado State Legislature imploring lawmakers to consider other options for the mentally ill instead of solitary confinement. His son, he told them, would spend many hours in lock up by himself, and it severely affected him.


"He'll rant a little bit. He'll stammer,” said Ebel.“He'll be frustrated that he can't find the words. And I let him get it out, and eventually, because I'm his father, he will talk to me. And I'm convinced, if any of the rest of you were to go talk to him, he wouldn't be able to talk to you."

From the comments:

I was in the same bootcamp they mentioned Evan going to in the artical Pacific Coast Academy. The Camp was eventually raided by the US government after multiple accusations or rape,beatings,starvation,overw orking,child endangerment and human trafficking. So you can imagine how bad it was. The place was terrible and everyone who went there left with scars, real and mental. Evan was severlly mistreated there and alot of us all knew that he was gonna wind up in jail as soon as he got out. So many children are still going threw the exact same torment we did because camps like that are still open all over the usa and around the world, they are advertised as an academy for troubled youths. And if you follow up on what happens to the kids when they get out the stories are almost always bad.. He also went to Tranquility bay in jamacia , look that up for so giggles on another bad teen help camp. Rest in peace evan

STATE COLLEGE, Pa.— Jerry Sandusky said in interview excerpts broadcast Monday that a key witness against him misinterpreted him showering with a young boy in Penn State football team facilities more than a decade ago.

Sandusky told documentary filmmaker John Ziegler, in recordings played on NBC's "Today" show, that he does not understand how Mike McQueary concluded "that sex was going on" when he witnessed Sandusky showering with a boy in 2001.

"That would have been the last thing I would have thought about," Sandusky said during what Ziegler described as 3 1/2 hours of interviews. "I would have thought maybe fooling around or something like that."

McQueary, a graduate assistant in 2001, testified at trial that he heard "skin-on-skin smacking sound" and had no doubt he was witnessing anal sex
