Obama Admin State Dept Settlement Freeze To Include Jerusalem

June 23, 2009

The hits just keep coming. Obama bows to Islam and spits on Israel (again)


Jewish neighborhoods in east Jerusalem are included in the US demand that Israel halt “settlement” construction, including for natural growth, State Department spokesman Ian Kelly told The Jerusalem Post during a press briefing on Monday.

“We’re talking about all settlement activity, yes, in the area across the line,” he said, referring to neighborhoods in Jerusalem over the Green Line, or pre-1967 armistice line, in response to a question on where America’s calls to halt construction in the settlements would be applied.


The Obama administration had not officially clarified its position on Jewish neighborhoods over the Green Line but within Jerusalem’s municipal boundaries, but the Netanyahu government had been working under the assumption that US officials’ call to halt even natural growth in the settlements did not refer to neighborhoods in the city, according to high-placed government officials.

Kelly’s comments Monday, however, made clear that Jerusalem was included, suggesting that efforts to finesse the disagreement could be further complicated.

US President Barack Obama has called the settlements illegitimate and said that their expansion must stop, including natural growth.  Read it all >>>

I’m not at all shocked. Saw it coming well before Prez-select O was sworn into office.  One of the many reasons I was against his becoming POTUS.

Speaking of Obama’s horrid treatment of Israel. Sammy over at Yid With Lid posted this yesterday.

    Have you read this?

    Even as the mullahs are terrorizing the Iranian people, the Obama administration is negotiating with an Iranian-backed terrorist organization and abandoning the American proscription against exchanging terrorist prisoners for hostages kidnapped by terrorists. Worse still, Obama has already released a terrorist responsible for the brutal murders of five American soldiers in exchange for the remains of two deceased British hostages….

    Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting… And, yes, I know perfectly well how good US citizens must feel about Obama. Unfortunately.
