OBAMA LIED in 2008. Now he refuses to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel

If the Obama Regime is concerned about its disastrous image with Israel supporters, denying that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital probably isn’t the way to fix it.

WEEKLY STANDARD  But at a press conference today, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland did exactly that, to the consternation of many reporters who repeatedly kept trying to clarify her remarks, only to be repeatedly stonewalled. “We are not going to prejudge the outcome of those negotiations, including the final status of Jerusalem,” State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland said in response the question.

When pressed further, Nuland stood her ground. “Our policy with regard to Jerusalem is that it has to be solved through negotiations.  That’s all I have to say on this issue,” said Nuland. Later, an apparently irritated spokesman again repeated her commitment not to answer the simple question. “I don’t have anything further to what I’ve said 17 times on that subject,” said Nuland. “OK?”

The Exchange:

Q:  Is it the view of the — of the United States that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel, notwithstanding the question about the embassy — the location of the U.S. embassy?

MS. NULAND:  We are not going to prejudge the outcome of those negotiations, including the final status of Jerusalem.

Q:  Does that — does that mean that you do not regard Jerusalem as the capital of Israel?

MS. NULAND:  Jerusalem is a permanent-status issue.  It’s got to be resolved through negotiations.

Q:  That seems to suggest that you do not regard Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  Is that correct or not?

MS. NULAND:  I have just spoken to this issue –

Q:  (Inaudible.)

MS. NULAND:  — and I have nothing further to say on it.

Q:  You’ve spoken to the issue –

MS. NULAND:  Yeah.

Q:  — but you haven’t answered the question.  And I think there’s a lot of people out there who are interested in hearing a real answer and not saying — and not trying to duck and say that this has got to be resolved by negotiations between the two sides.

MS. NULAND:  That is our –

Q:  What is the capital of Israel?

MS. NULAND:  Our policy with regard to Jerusalem is that it has to be solved through negotiations.  That’s all I have to say on this issue.

Q:  What is the capital of Israel according –

MS. NULAND:  Our embassy, as you know, is located in Tel Aviv.

Q:  So does that mean you regard Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel?

MS. NULAND:  The issue on Jerusalem has to be settled through negotiations.

Q: I just want to go back to — I want to clarify something, perhaps give you an “out” on your Jerusalem answer.  Is it your — is it your position that all of Jerusalem is a final-status issue, or do you think — or is it just East Jerusalem?

MS. NULAND:  Matt, I don’t have anything further to what I’ve said 17 times on that subject. OK? 

Q:  All right.  So hold on.  So I just want to make sure.  You’re saying that all of Jerusalem, not just East Jerusalem, is a final-status issue.

MS. NULAND:  Matt, I don’t have anything further on Jerusalem to what I’ve already said.

  1. You just know that you know , when your talking to a lying , deceitful, two-faced pos individual. He’s sold his soul to the devil.

  2. Actually, Jerusalem was the capital of Judah comprised of the Tribes of Judah, Benjamin, with Levites, and Samaria was the capital of the Ten Tribes of Israel. In the time of King David and King Solomon, the capital of all the 12 Tribes of Israel was Jerusalem.

    Jerusalem is the capital of the State of Israel, and for the U.S. to now believe this is up for negotiations proves Obama’s administration fully intends to destroy the State of Israel, as is the goal of any good muslim rotter.

  3. Katie: I, also, have few Jewish friends who voted for him. When I start say anything negative about this Muslim in chief, they interrupted me angrily. They, simply, did not want to KNOW. I don’t know now how they feel. I don’t open the subject, since I don’t want to lose their friendship. However, one of them is Israeli who agrees with me.

    • ronyvo, “friends” who support Obama cannot be real friends to you. Would you have said the same about “friends” who supported Hitler?

  4. God will not be mocked. I have read the Book and know how it ends. Still, I am disgusted by the obamanation and his cronies on the hill. I will always stand for Israel in deed and prayer regardless of the the resident in the White House says.

  5. OK, there is plenty enough to talk about Oblabla, than to pick on crap like this. Only two country’s recognize Jerusalem as the legal capitol of Israel, and one on them is Venezuela. While I’m no fan of Islam, I’m not leading any cheers for Israel either. And lately, I’m wondering if your site is more about Pro-Jewish issues than with Islam. Truth be told, Israel is also a terrorist state that has been caught, red handed, spying on the US. Has, been caught also, red handed, committing violence against it’s own people in so called Black Flag Opps. Has been thumbing its nose at UN resolutions since the 1960’s, with far worse breeches than Saddam Hussein; with a reprehensible human rights record, and where native Israelis are persecuted for not being Zionist enough–several of whom I know personally. So please, stop playing the innocent Israel card–it’s bunk.

      • Nice one!!!!
        So why has Israel just won yet another nobel peace prize, developed a vaccine to cure most cancers, is a world leader in medicine… if it is so bad?

    • you ignorant commie twat how the fuck do any sane person equate Israel with any arab/muslim country what planet are you from what drug are you on this week, Jerusalem has been central to the Jewish faith long before any other and no man has the right to change that especially a black african masquerading as an american

  6. The Jews and the Christians are the
    “People of the Book”, THE BIBLE,
    God said I will give you the land as I lay it out.
    NUMBERS 34: 3-12
    No more arguments, God supersedes POTUS

  7. I remember being at a meeting held in a Conservative Jewish synagogue back in 2008. I was shocked at how many of the mostly elderly Jews were thrilled to vote for him. I tried to point out some very worrisome facts about his anti-Israel leaning but they laughed. I wonder if they are still laughing.

    Once he was elected, I hoped that I would be pleasantly surprised and my worrying would have been for naught. Now I realize that I was right to worry. Sadly, he is far more dangerous than I thought.

    My most liberal Jewish friends just loved him when he was running for president and tried to convince me to vote for him. Soon after the inauguration, they never said another word about him. They are now conspicuously silent about him and his bid for (G-d forbid) re-election.

  8. BNI, this one went through !!
    Now as to voter fraud – is there any question as to why obamanation is so confident he will win the election ??

  9. the son of a bitch got me frothing at the mouth when ever i even hear his name and we ain’t even got started yet !gona be a long long hot summer.

  10. It is interesting that a 2004 AP press release would refer to him as Kenyan Born , once in a headline and once again in their article . Yet no one mentions this article and completely ignores its existence . I would think if it was inaccurate , that Obama or his staff would have challanged the statement . But then again , I suppose Kenyan sounds better than British East Africa was known as in 1961 . It did not become Kenya until 1963 .

  11. BNI, do not know if this will get through but will try – seems Internet Express this evening repeatedly sends message stating “unable to open this” page.
    Since I am more than a little politically active – that may have become a problem with them.
    Will try to check later and see if this is posted.

  12. I know you’re right; however, it won’t matter. Even IF he is beaten…he will NOT step down. Remember when he said:
    “I may suspend the elections to FIX THE BUDGET.”
    “I will be in office another five years.”

    I WANT TO BE WRONG. I don’t think, regardless of what happens, he will step down.
    He has lost many of the liberals;
    He has lost much of the Liberal Jewish vote;
    He has lost the female vote;
    He just had the Black Community file a lawsuit against him.

    He will get back in NO MATTER WHAT.
    He has caused enough damage — thee is only one way to get him out of our WH. And, I can’t say because I don’t want men in black suits at my door.

  13. Remember that comment on open mike he made unknowingly last September at the United Nations when he told Abbas to wait till he’s reelected?

  14. I am sure Israel is not grieving cuz this Muslim is speaking out. HE lied to get votes then; and doesn’t need them now.
    The Jews that voted for him feel very betrayed “as they should.”

    • Upaces, most of them will vote for him anyway.Any Jew stupid enough to vote for him the first time, will do it again.

    • So you think that Jews won’t vote for obama again? Your dreaming, most Jews are liberals ,and liberals don’t think like normal, intelligent beings.

  15. This video explains how when YOU cast a vote to, for example, Newt Gingrich…the programmer of the voting machines fixes it so that the “desired” person to get president gets “his” vote:

    • I have watched returns from my state go exactly opposite what the polls said and in two years a vote was cast, to demand car seats. It lost by 62% of the vote. The next election on electronic voting the same bill passed by 62%.
      No one called for a recount because they trusted the machines.

      I have a solution to this fraud.
      Go back to hard cards. Stop last min. registry. Stop early voting.
      End vote by mail. [except absentee ballot].
      Picture ID required to vote.
      Vote only in your local precinct.
      Now let the hand wringers start squeezing their hands.

      • Now for each election in this country, a hard copy count must be made to declare a winner. Jump on the Idea of fast and you give accuracy away and allow the thieves in.

    • Saw that video! Unfortunately most won’t even give it a listen because it’s from “The Catholics”. Bunch of sheeple in this country!

  16. From the AP in 2004: Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate
    Hmm…An AP story from 2004 entitled Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate has been discovered on archive.org by many sites (and twitter where I got this). Does this mean now that the AP is nothing but a bunch of birthers?
    Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.
    The Republican choice will become an instant underdog in the campaign for the seat of retiring Republican Senator Peter Fitzgerald, since Obama held a wide lead even before the scandal broke.
    “I feel for him actually,” Obama told a Chicago TV station. “What he’s gone through over the last three days I think is something you wouldn’t wish on anybody.”
    The Republican state committee must now choose a replacement for Ryan, who had won in the primaries against seven contenders. Its task is complicated by the fact that Obama holds a comfortable lead in the polls and is widely regarded as a rising Democratic star.
