Report from Israel National News: Obama Favors Saudi Initiative, ‘Dividing Jerusalem.’
(IsraelNN.com) United States President-Elect Barack Obama will support the Saudi Initiative for peace between Israel and Arab nations, the British Sunday Times reported Sunday. Obama told Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, “The Israelis would be crazy not to accept this initiative,” according to the Times. No, Barry, to accept such a deal would be crazy.
The initiative calls on Israel to withdraw completely to its 1949 borders in exchange for normalized relations with Arab League countries. It includes a full retreat from the eastern half of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, and from the Golan. 1949 borders do not even include Jerusalem.
The plan also calls on Israel to find a solution for the plight of millions of foreign Arabs who claim descent from those who fled Israel during the War of Independence. They are considered refugees by Arab governments and continually have been denied citizenship in their countries of birth. And what are the Arabs going do again?
While proponents of the plan have welcomed the plan as a chance to deal with the refugees without granting them Israeli citizenship, some Arab leaders have warned that any alternative to allowing the millions to “return” to Israel is unacceptable. PA-based terrorist groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad are among those who insist that every Arab who identifies as a descendant of a former resident of Israel be allowed to live in Israel.

Now, let me get this straight, Israeli’s should give up even more of their tiny country to the Palestinians, the majority of whom did not even live in the area in 1948, while the Arabs don’t have to part with a square inch for their brothers, the Palestinians? Arab population in Israel in 1948 was 160,000, now it is 1,250,000.
