Israel is Adamant: Jerusalem Will NOT be Divided

The Haaretz news website is reporting that Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has declared today that Jerusalem was the eternal capital of the Jewish state and that it would remain undivided. The Haaretz news article reports:
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Tuesday that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of the State of Israel and that it will never be divided - "neither directly nor indirectly." Addressing a group of foreign diplomats at the President's Residence in Jerusalem, the foreign minister quoted a speech made by former prime minister Menachem Begin, explaining that Begin's remarks reflected the connection that Jews around the world feel toward Jerusalem - a connection that still exists today. "Today," he said, "I stand before you in Jerusalem, and confirm Begin's words: the city will remain our capital and will never be divided."
Lieberman further stated:
Lieberman stressed that the government of which he is a member seeks peace as long as there is a genuine partner. "The State of Israel has proven time and again that it is prepared to pay a high price for peace with its neighbors and has already evacuated territory three times its size," he said. "We must now create a new reality in the region based on security for Israelis, economic prosperity for Palestinians, and stability for both. Only then will it be possible to negotiate a final agreement between the parties."

As President Obama continues to force Israel into giving up its East Jerusalem settlements, this stance by Lieberman sends a direct message: "You can push us only so far. We will make other concessions for peace, but Jerusalem is no one of them!"
In the meantime, the administration again demonstrated a high level of ineptitude when, within a few hours, the statement made my Michele Foray regarding the removal of the military option against Iran was countered. Now, it seems, no one really knows whether or not Barrack Obama has the chutzpah to actually use force against Iran. RESULT----
THE IRANIANS ARE LAUGHING THEIR HEADS OFF as they perform military maneuvers in the Persian Gulf, and
THE ISRAELIS ARE AGAIN scratching their heads as they attempt to interpret the actions of a foolish American president.
