One question. Can someone point me to one condition met by the Muslims in Gaza, Samaria and Judea since Israel capitulated to Bill Clinton at Oslo? First under Arafat and then with succeeding terrorists in charge, not one condition was met by the Muslims, while Israel handed over piece after piece of Jewish land in an illogical and suicidal act of desperation and peace wishing. Islamic jihad exploits the goodness of the Jews and their love of life.
You cannot make peace with an enemy that lives for your destruction. The enemy must be destroyed. It's that simple, folks.
Bolton: Israel on the Chopping Block
In a speech to the General Assembly of The United Nations, The President of The United States of America said, "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

(IsraelNN.com) United States President Barack Obama issued a stinging condemnation of the Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria on Wednesday in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly. The U.S. “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements,” Obama announced.
Obama also stated that the U.S. must put more pressure on Israel to accept Arab demands. “The United States does Israel no favors when we fail to couple an unwavering commitment to its security with an insistence that Israel respect the legitimate claims and rights of the Palestinians,” he said.
Obama has pressured Israel to completely freeze building for Jews in Judea and Samaria, a plan Netanyahu has rejected. Israeli leaders have stated that many Judea and Samaria communities are within the “national consensus” regarding towns that are expected to remain in Israeli hands permanently, and that building should continue in those areas. The Obama administration's most recent statements on the subject made clear, however, that a freeze on settlements could not be a precondition for peace talks between Israel and the PA.
Regarding Iran, Obama expressed support for both diplomacy and consequences. Iran and North Korea should be offered “greater prosperity and a more secure peace” if they agree to abide by international guidelines, but “must be held accountable” if they insist on pursuing nuclear weapons, he said.
UPDATE: UN criticizes Israel's atomic program J Post (hat tip Craig)
What a joke. Israel has had an atomic program for decades -- the existence of such a program kept them from annihilation in the Yom Kippur war (they love to attack on Jewish high holy days). Israel has never used them ........... so this is all part of the OIC-driven Jewish genocide solution.
Overriding Western objections, a 150-nation nuclear conference on Friday passed a resolution directly criticizing Israel and its atomic program for the first time in 18 years. Iran hailed the vote as a "glorious moment."
The consequence of an Obama presidency.
Israeli delegate David Danieli denounced the vote as "openly hostile to the state of Israel" and accused Iran and Syria of "creating a diplomatic smoke screen" to cover up their "pursuit of nuclear weapons."
But chief Iranian delegate Ali Asghar Soltanieh said the vote should serve as a warning to Washington and other supporters of the Jewish state.
"The US Administration .... has received a message that they should not continue supporting Israel at any price," he told reporters.
