Obama, Palestinian Leader Meet As Deadline Nears

Mar 17, 2014 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: National Public Radio

A deadline fast approaching, President Barack Obama is seeking to ease the logjam in elusive Mideast peace talks and keep Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas from walking away, despite few signs that either Palestinians or Israelis are prepared to budge on key sticking points.

after a millennia of lies and deceit, hasn't Obama learned anything yet about muslims?

islam forbids muslims to surrender to non-muslims. they can NEVER surrender to non-muslims.

this is THEIR LAW.

the Koran mandates that the only option they have when faced with the possibility of losing a battle is hudna.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudna

for those of you who have not read the Koran, a hudna can be no longer then 10 years.

what happens after 10 years?

war of course. this is THEIR LAW.

this process.. this religion that muslims have been following has been going on since 622ad.

in other words, the muslims have NEVER considered peace with Israel or any non-muslim country for that matter. NEVER.

hear the story direct from a muslim cleric. he is very direct. he is being so because he knows non-muslims are hard of hearing. many are stupid beyond comprehension.

As soon as the Israelis start returning some of the
stolen Palestinian homelands the situation will
start easing up.

The Koran is like the Old Testament. Full of over-the-top dogma.

For instance:

"One who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall be put to death; the whole congregation shall stone the blasphemer. Aliens as well as citizens, when they blaspheme the Name, shall be put to death." (NRSV)
Leviticus 24:16

"If a man commits adultery with another man's wife—with the wife of his neighbor—both the adulterer and the adulteress must be put to death." (NIV)
Leviticus 20:10

"Anyone who dishonors father or mother must be put to death. Such a person is guilty of a capital offense." (NLT)
Leviticus 20:9

Crazy stuff, nicht wahr?
Like the Koran.

Don't take it so seriously.

what Palestinian homelands? they are all arabs.

the philistines died out a long time ago. don't you know this?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Pales...
http://www.shamrak.com/Masada2000-HistoryofPa...

that area in the middle east where the Israeli/arab issue has been gurgitating for the last 100 hundred years was once called the ottoman empire.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_empire

the ottoman empire lasted for about 500 years. from 1399ad-1922ad.

they ceased to exist after losing to the allies in world war one.

do you know how big the ottoman empire got during it's 500 year reign? about the size of the EU. and guess how they got so big, genius? they conquered all these other countries to create their empire.

in fact, the reason why there is no more country called the ottoman empire is because they went to war in world war one in the hopes of conquering MORE land to add to their precious empire. BUT they LOST this time around.

they LOST. the muslim ottoman empire LOST. PRAISE ALLAH.

if it were me, I would tell Israel to do what the muslims are trying to do to them. CONQUER THEM. take the lands of ANY neighboring country that tries to conquer them and claim it for their own.

I rather have a big country called Israel in the middle east than all these small muslim countries who have declared on the usa.

makes sense. right?

to Israel.. it is almost time for the arabs in Lebanon to start up their war with you AGAIN. the 10 year hudna is almost over. when they do, don't hold back with the fighting. totally annihilate the muslims. and TAKE OVER Lebanon. call it your own. ONLY by doing this will we finally see the possibility of peace in the middle east.

get it done.

what are you? an idiot?

don't take it seriously? over a billion people take islam VERY seriously. most of them pray 5 times a day. that's how serious they are about it.

many commit suicide bombings in the name of islam. that's pretty serious if you ask me.

the middle east is bubbling about ready to go to war because of islam. and you are telling me to quote, "don't take it so seriously."???

what are you? on drugs?

liar.

the league of nations didn't exist in 1947.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/League_of_Nation...

I got this feeling YOU are muslim. if so, I find it hilarious that a muslim is telling me that it's wrong to conquer another country when that's EXACTLY what they did for 500+ YEARS. and as I understand it, STILL doing so today in places like the Philippines, Thailand, Nigeria, etc. the list goes on.

unbelievable.

if land seizure is illegal, then, why are you muslims pushing your agenda of sharia law all over the world in countries like Nigeria, Somalia, Malaysia, Lebanon, the Philippines, Thailand, etc?

.... the list goes on.

hell, you muslims are even trying to take over Australia, the UK, France...

Palestinians must realize by now that Israel's plan is to build settlements everywhere their heart desires and NO ONE is going to stop them from building over the entirety of the land they claim as their own.

After the events in Crimea, the Palestinians should realize that Obama is NOT the person able to stop land grabs by countries intent on doing so.

And what consequences might they be? Looks like Putin has Carte Blanche to return Russia to its previous Soviet Empire without any serious consequences. When you wake up at noon, does the sun give you a headache?

THAT land that Israel Is on IS THEIRS. the fact that they are living on it further confirms their claim to it.

I hope Israel builds all over their land so that the arabs truly understand that it IS Israel land.

furthermore, if these arabs try to push Israel off THEIR land, I hope Israel does the right thing, and TAKE the arab land for their attempt on conquering Israel.

what about all the innocent arabs that are caught in the middle? yeah. what about them?

if these arabs are successful in taking the land from Israel, what do you think they will do to the innocent jews in Israel?

one only has to read about what the muslims are doing to the christians in Nigeria to realize what they will do..

do you want to know the reality of it all?

land belongs to who can control it. no more. no less.

if you are on top of a hill and there are a million people fighting with you over it. and you remain the lone survivor after all the fighting is done, then, that hill is yours. to do as you please.

that is the reality of it all.

it's been like that since the beginning of time. it doesn't get any more real.

understand?

Obama shouldn't be over there fighting a battle that is so far away from our borders. even if we were able to win the initial battle, the distant is too far for us to continue control of it for long.

let the locals deal with the soviets. it's their problem. bottomline, they don't support us much at all. so, why should we support them?

they showed this to us during the afghan war. do you remember how many troops they sent over to assist us?

according to sources I read, most of our supporters if you can call them that sent in less than a thousand of their people to help us. looking at the list, Ukraine only sent 26.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_in_Afghanist... (2001%E2%80%93present)

you want us to assist Ukraine? ok, I'll agree to send them 26 of our troops. the same number they sent us.

another thing.. where's the UN and NATO in all this? freaking hiding in some corner twiddling their thumbs I bet. useless.

risk the lives of our people for the people of Ukraine?

that is what it all comes down to.

frankly, I don't see the logic of doing so. especially since they only sent 26 to help us during the afghan war.

before we intervene at all, I think I like to see Germany, spain, france, and all the other countries in the former soviet union speaking up first before we enter the scene. how about kazhanstan speaking up a little?

it's their turf that we are dealing with here. not ours.

We have no business getting involved in Ukraine. Certainly NO American lives should be put at risk.

Additionally, and in keeping with the topic here, we have no business involving ourselves in the civil conflict in Palestine (those semites who can't seem to get along with each other need to resolve their own problems)
