Gosh, I Think He Means It (Not)

Only two types of people attempt to act as peace-makers by stomping their feet and throwing a huge hissy-fit. It is either a bully who is actually a wimp at heart....or.....someone with an ego the size of Mount Hood. In this case, we may have both types balled up into one. His name.... (uh, look to the left. don't want to say his name in this context because you may be stuck with a label you really don't want. . . . . . . Nah, I'll say it.......) Barack Obama.
What is his current stratagem in the Middle East? Well, on Wednesday White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told Israel's consul in Los Angeles that the Obama administration is fed up with both Israel and the Palestinians. He threatened, not promised, that the US will reduce its involvement in the Middle East if the situation does not improve. (We can only hope.) Emanuel met Jacob Dayan, consul general of Israel in Los Angeles, about two weeks ago, and Dayan then briefed the Foreign Ministry. Emanuel told Dayan the U.S. (shorthand for Obama) is sick of the Israelis (shorthand for Netanyahu) who, he said, adopt suitable ideas -- such as acceptance of the two-state solution and a freeze on settlement construction in the West Bank -- months too late, when they are no longer effective, according to Army Radio. The U.S. is also sick of the Palestinians who "never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity," Emanuel reportedly said. (Army News Daily) Emanuel reportedly said that if there is no progress in the peace process, the Obama administration will minimize its involvement (please say it ain't so) because, he said, the U.S. has other matters to deal with (like converting America into a socialist state, sucking the money from near-empty middle-class pockets, fouling up Health care, demonizing Christians and Conservatives, turning congress into a brothel, etc, etc, etc,). Offering a dubious carrot, Emanuel reportedly said that if there is progress in peace talks, Obama might visit Israel and the region. (OMG, the messiah may come to town. You Israelites better get your act together or Barack will smack you on the head with a TelePrompter.)
