Obama sets preconditions to meet with….Israel

Update at end of post

Oh good grief.

Is it possible he has just mixed up his allies and enemies lists?


The White House waited several days to confirm that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could meet with President Barack Obama Monday, and sought conditions first — underscoring the new depths of difficulty that Middle East peace efforts have reached in the last week.

U.S. officials said the delay, which stretched until late Sunday, stemmed from last-minute discussions aimed at gaining a more robust and public commitment to the peace track from Mr. Netanyahu. One official said the U.S. wanted Mr. Netanyahu to express stronger support for negotiations on an independent Palestinian state at his speech Monday before the Jewish Federations of North America in Washington. “We’re in the part of the process where you can’t expect something for nothing,” the official said.

It wasn’t immediately clear what Mr. Netanyahu would say on the issue. But ultimately the U.S. agreed to schedule the meeting…..

Obama wouldnt have known our NATO allies then if asked betcha and he had a CMTE on NATO in AfPak and NEVER HELD A MEETING and he is a snarky snarker with the tea slur aimed at Hillary, he has always had a thing against tea people ! and Obama DID later listen to dictators spewing anti American nonsense at that Latin Americas meeting I recall…he looks much younger here does Obama…

Update: So Obama set ‘preconditions’ on meeting with BiBi, and what did he get from his one on one meeting? What did his ‘Oneness’ produce that Hillary could not get? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. And he did not appear with BiBi to adoring cameras afterward because he got absolutely nothing…WSJ:

(…) Mr. Netanyahu didn’t offer any new commitment about Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem — which the Palestinians have demanded be fully stopped as a precondition for peace talks — or list any specific terms for holding new negotiations.

“We had an idea that he might bring something out to push the process forward,” one U.S. official said. “But he’s kept it in his pocket.” The official said the U.S. side had hoped Mr. Netanyahu would unveil a more detailed proposal for restraining the settlements.

The Israeli leader also appeared to resist U.S. pressure to give stronger support for discussions on an independent Palestinian state — the so-called “two-state solution.” He said he was committed to two states living side by side, but suggested that key Palestinian demands for negotiations over East Jerusalem and the right of return for Palestinian refugees wouldn’t be on the table.

U.S. officials said the White House had held off until late Sunday firming up Mr. Netanyahu’s meeting with Mr. Obama, in an effort to pressure the Israeli leader to take a more conciliatory line.

After the meeting Monday night, the White House issued only a brief statement saying the president and Mr. Netanyahu discussed a number of issues in the U.S.-Israel bilateral relationship, as well as how to move forward on Middle East peace. The two leaders didn’t appear together for the press after the meeting.

Palestinian and Arab leaders on Monday discounted the speech, saying it didn’t differ substantively from past addresses. Palestinian Authority officials reiterated that negotiations with Israel couldn’t resume without a complete settlement freeze….
