Joshua Pundit:

Well, that didn’t take long. The Obama Administration has now given official recognition and a White House invite to a terrorist entity :

A senior Palestinian Authority official reportedly announced that the US has invited the new Palestinian unity government’s prime minister, Rami Hamdallah, to an official visit in Washington.

According to a report by Maariv on Friday, a Palestinian official stated that the invitation is a declaration of American recognition for the unity government. The report cited the official as saying, “The visit will take place in June, during which Hamdallah will meet with American president and visit the US Congress.”

“The US administration has renounced its previous disapproval of the national unity government and will now support the new government,” claimed the head of the Fatah reconciliation team, Azam al-Ahmad.

Washington has previously announced that it expects any Palestinian government to refrain from violence as well as recognize Israel and agreements.

Nor does it mean that U.S. aid, military and otherwise to Hamas and Fatah is going to cease, no matter what Congress says.

President Obama actually signaled his approval of the Hamas – Fatah merger a month ago.This just makes it official.

What this president has essentially done is to choose sides in the conflict, and to break existing U.S. law regarding material support for terrorism while doing it.

And Israel? PM Netanyahu admitted today that he had imposed what Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon called a ‘silent freeze’ on all construction in Judea and Samaria in response to major pressure from the Obama Administration:

Netanyahu, who met Thursday night with mayors from 20 West Bank settlements, said the United States recently demanded that the Civil Administration not only refrain from issuing tenders for construction, but also freeze the activity of its planning committee altogether and not approve new projects that would later require tenders.[…]

“I don’t know of a formal policy to limit building. But when you look, de facto, what’s happening on the ground, yes, you feel there is a silent freeze in terms of planning and in terms of government construction,” Danon (Likud) said. “And that’s something that bothers me.”

“This “freeze” is being enforced everywhere — within and outside the so-called settlement blocs”, he said. “If you don’t allow any planning, it will stop. You will have no [housing] units for youngsters in Ariel, in Maaleh Adumim. This is happening already.”

Danon said he wasn’t sure why the government would agree to quietly freeze settlement expansion, suggesting that pressure from the United States might be behind it. “Building in Judea and Samaria is a major issue among the Americans,” he said, using the Biblical names for the West Bank. “A lot of pressure is being put on us.”

Here’s the thing about blackmail…once you give in to it,it never ends. And it’s also true that anything like this someone threatens you with is something they’re probably going to do to you anyway eventually,out of sheer hatred.

That’s exactly what’s going on here.

President Obama’s goal was always to destroy the relationship between America and Israel before he leaves office, and he’s made a fair degree of progress.It’s a major part of his agenda, and no amount of groveling by Israel is going to change that.
It’s time Israel said no, publicly.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
