A week ago I
reported that – What if BHO in the proposed direct peace talks offers
to make the building the 3rd temple a fact (now that 50% of Israelis
want it) – well it has come to light that he is also coercing the other
party as the following shows!
Obama Warns Abbas: ‘Start Talks or Else’
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
secret 36-page memo based on Obama administration statements indicates
that the president warned Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas
to start direct talks with Israel or risk losing American support for
the recognition of the PA as a country.
The Associated Press
reported it has possession of the document, under the letterhead of the
Palestinian Negotiations Department and which indicates the warning
came from President Barack Obama via U.S. Middle East envoy George
It shows that the Obama administration has resigned
itself to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu remaining head of Israel's
coalition government. “Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is not in
political danger of being replaced,” the document states.
adds that Abbas is under pressure from both the Arab world and within
the PA, whereby his consent to direct talks with Israel would be
“political suicide” for him. However, the document warns, “Abbas needs
to accept direct talks now if he wants President Obama’s help in
facilitating statehood.” The memo says that PA advisors are in favor of
rejecting the American ultimatum.
Abbas told PA media on Sunday
that he is resisting pressure from “the entire world” to concede his
long-stated condition that Netanyahu extend the 10-month building
freeze that expires in late September.
Senior Cabinet ministers
as well as the Prime Minister have clearly stated they will not extend
the freeze. Political support for the coalition is strong, with even
the center-left Israeli media generally recognizing that the PA keeps
adding on new condition for direct talks.
Abbas has in effect
insisted on acceptance of a proposed PA state without negotiations on
any substantial issues, such as the status of Jerusalem.
Minister Netanyahu and Abbas have been blaming each other for the
failure to sit down for direct talks. “We have negotiated with Israeli
governments before, more than once. Why would we avoid such talks? We
are not,” Abbas told reporters after discussions with King Abdullah in
Prime Minister Netanyahu repeated on Monday his
oft-stated declaration that he is ready meet Abbas immediately without
pre-conditions. "We have an understanding with the Americans that we
need to move now, without any delay, to direct negotiations, but in
response, we have a clear Palestinian attempt to avoid this process,"
Netanyahu said. "They are trying to stall and to sneak away from direct
negotiations and to cause the Arab League to shackle the talks."
secret memo from Washington indicates clearly that President Obama has
given up on pressing Israel for any more concessions, which Jerusalem
has made on a regular basis since the Roadmap Plan was announced by
former U.S. President George W. Bush in 2002.
The memo puts the
Palestinian Authority in the unaccustomed position of having to
compromise or “going for broke” by continuing its previously announced
strategy of waiting for the United States to declare the PA as a new
Arab country within Israel’s borders.
State Department officials
would not confirm the exact language of the memo, but said, "This
indeed illustrates where we are."
PA negotiator Saeb
Erekat said the memo is not entirely accurate, but confirmed that
American officials told Abbas that he has to sit down with Israel “if
he wants Obama to help.”
It looks like it is starting to come together like no other time in history.
