Obama: Palestinian Terror is Israel's Fault

By Douglas V. Gibbs

The anti-American, anti-Israel President of the United States has struck again.  Who he is has always been obvious based upon who Mr. Obama hangs around, what he says, and what he refuses to say.  In the case of the increase of Palestinian violence in Israel, that some fear may escalate into yet another intifada, where there has been a wave of lethal terror attacks, President Obama's administration accused Netanyahu of "inciting" the violence.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said, "we've seen also attacks on Palestinians...we need to reduce these kinds of incitements."

Toner also attacked Israel regarding their position on the Temple Mount, and claimed Israel needs to "message better."

After a litany of pointed questions in an attempt to get Toner to clarify his position, the reality was that he had no intention of holding the Palestinian Arabs and their leadership to blame for the wave of terror that has erupted at levels that has Palestinian leaders screaming that they are prepared for another Palestinian intifada (uprising).

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry plans to travel to Israel soon, and fears that the "two-state solution" may be lost.

This writer believes that a two-state solution would better enable Islam to move against Israel, because Israel's buffer defense zones would be gone.

Lebanon used to be a Christian nation, but that has all but been destroyed by Muslim jihadists. Now, perched on his throne, the leader of Lebanon's powerful Shiite Hezbollah movement has said he backs the series of Palestinian attacks on Israelis, describing them as resistance and an "intifada".

"I emphasise our absolute support for the rights of the Palestinian people and their intifada," Hassan Nasrallah said in a televised address ahead of the Shiite Muslim religious holiday Ashura.

"It is incumbent upon us all to stand by the Palestinians and help them all we can, and to recognise the fact that the Palestinians have in front of them... no choice but the choice of resistance and intifada," he added.

Nasrallah said the Palestinians were responding to "provocations by Israelis" and were seeking to prevent the "Judaisation of Al-Aqsa mosque".

The goal of the Islamic world has never been "peace with Israel," and it never has been.  Israeli President Netanyahu understands this, and that is why he has taken such a hard stance against the violence.

As the old saying goes, "If Muslims were to lay down their weapons, there would be peace.  If Israel were to lay down their weapons, there would be no Israel."
