a militant Islamist and member of the New Black Panthers, and his
comrade Jerry Jackson were charged with voter intimidation after
incidents in November 2008 in Philadelphia. After the White House
appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General, the Department of
Justice dropped charges and dismissed the case against the militant
debt, miscarriage of justice, refusal to secure the borders, and
using strategic agencies such as NASA for Islamic appeasement are all
indicators that by design or by ignorance, the tenets of the
Declaration of Independence are being violated. And this week, we
continue to see the impact of this type of leadership.

Remarks by President
Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel in Joint Press
give a perspective below on Obama and Netanyahu's statements during
their White House press availability.
I just completed an excellent one-on-one discussion with Prime
Minister Netanyahu, and I want to welcome him back to the White
I want to, first of all, thank him for the wonderful
statement that he made in honor of the Fourth of July, our
Independence Day, when he was still in Israel. And

between our two countries.
public relations statements for the Jewish audience in the United
States. They began their meeting at 11 a.m. After the photo-op, they
had a working lunch. Netanyahu left around 1:50 p.m. He was at the
White House just under three hours.
Minister Netanyahu indicated in his speech, the bond between the
United States and Israel is unbreakable. It
encompasses our national security and strategic interests; but most
importantly, it is the bond of two democracies
which share a common set of values and whose people have grown closer
and closer over time.
unbreakable bond has become the mantra for the White House (and
Israel) since the public relations debacle in late March and early
April over the Biden-Jerusalem incident. Netanyahu, who is very
concerned about Israel's relationship with its only true friend in
the world along with his political challenges in Israel, is using
"unbreakable bond" frequently.
our discussions in our private meeting, we covered a wide range of

on the progress that's been made in allowing more goods into

think it's been acknowledged that it has moved more quickly and more
effectively than many people anticipated.
gives Obama some degree of victory — since the world after the
Turkey flotilla incident called for more access to Gaza, and the
Obama Administration fronted the efforts and was able to deliver.
Obviously there is [sic] still tensions and issues there that have to
be resolved, but our two countries are working cooperatively together
to deal with these issues. The Quartet has been, I think, very
helpful as well. And
we believe that there is a way to make sure that the people of Gaza
are able to prosper economically, while Israel is able to maintain
its legitimate security needs in not allowing missiles and weapons to
get to Hamas.
discussed the issue of Iran, and we pointed out that as a consequence
of some hard work internationally, we
have instituted through the UN Security Council the toughest
sanctions ever directed at an Iranian government.
addition, last week I signed our own set of sanctions, coming out of
the United States Congress, as robust as any that we've ever
seen. Other countries are following suit. And
so we intend to continue to put pressure on Iran to meet its
international obligations and to cease the kinds of provocative

are Obama's sanctions, which were watered down thanks to Russia and
China. They will have some impact, but it won't stop Iran from
developing a nuclear weapon. It will be interesting to see what kind
of pressure Obama and company exerts. Iran's spoken of possible
disruption of the Persian Gulf oil flow. The US ships in the region
may be busy if they attempt this.
We had an extensive discussion about the prospects for Middle East
peace. I believe that Prime Minister Netanyahu wants peace. I
think he's willing to take risks for peace. And
during our conversation, he once again reaffirmed his willingness to
engage in serious negotiations with the Palestinians around what I
think should be the goal — not just of the two principals involved,
but the entire world — and that is two states living side by side in
peace and security.
for peace" has become another Israeli line from Netanyahu, Ehud
Barak and Israel's ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren.
Israel's security needs met, the Palestinians having a sovereign
state that they call their own — those are goals that have obviously
escaped our grasp for decades now. But
now, more than ever, I think is the time for us to seize on that
vision. And I think that Prime Minister Netanyahu is prepared to

has cleverly called for direct talks and enough of the proximity
talks. Abbas has responded cleverly, saying he would be interested in
direct talks if Israel will first agree to border (boundaries) and
are going to need to be a whole set of confidence-building measures
to make sure that people are serious and that we're sending a signal
to the region that this isn’t just more talk and more process
think it is also important to recognize that the Arab states have to
be supportive of peace — because
although, ultimately, this is going to be determined by the Israeli
and Palestinian peoples, they can't succeed unless you have the
surrounding states having as — a greater investment in the process
than we've seen so far.
diplomatic talk is over-used and sometimes absurd. The Palestinians
have never provided any confidence for one to believe that they are
serious about peace with Israel. Fatah's relations with Hamas are in
shambles and the Palestinian people are the ones being hurt the most.
To this day, the Arab states still haven’t acknowledged
Israel's right to exist.
Finally, we discussed issues that arose out of the Nuclear
Nonproliferation Conference. And I reiterated to the Prime
Minister that there is no change in US policy when it comes to these
issues. We strongly believe that given its size, its history, the
region that it's in, and the threats that are leveled against us —
against it, that Israel has unique security requirements. It's
got to be able to respond to threats or any combination of threats in
that's why we remain unwavering in our commitment to Israel's
security. And the United States will never ask Israel to take any
steps that would undermine their security interests.
the professor, wants a nuclear-free Middle East. Sure! Israel
is okay here, because the Middle East will always have nuclear
threats — especially after Iran develops its nuclear weapon,
followed by a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia,
Turkey, Syria, Iran and the UAE have all been in talks on developing
nuclear energy, which is a good cover for developing nuclear weapons.
So I just want to say once again that I thought the discussion that
we had was excellent. We've seen over the last year how our
relationship has broadened. Sometimes it doesn't get publicized;
but on a whole range of issues — economic, military-to-military,
issues related to Israel maintaining its qualitative military edge,
intelligence-sharing, how we are able to work together effectively on
the international front — that in fact our relationship is
continuing to improve. And I think a lot of that has to do with
the excellent work that the Prime Minister has done. So, I'm
perspective: There were some positives such as military-to-military,
issues related to Israel maintaining its qualitative military edge,
and so on. As I have shared before, the Pentagon-IDF cooperation has
never been better, and a lot of that has to do with the challenges in
the region and the good relationship from when George W. Bush was

The greatest new threat on the horizon,
the single most dominant issue for many of us, is the prospect that

Security Council, which passed sanctions against Iran [and] by the
U.S. bill that the President signed just a few days ago. And I

countries to follow the US lead, to
adopt much tougher sanctions against Iran, primarily those directed
against its energy sector.
does a great job of keeping the focus on the enormous threat to all
parties in the Middle East if Iran goes nuclear.
As the President said, we
discussed a great deal about activating, moving forward the quest for
peace between Israel and the Palestinians. We're
committed to that peace. I'm committed to that peace. And
this peace, I think, will better the lives of Israelis, of
Palestinians, and it certainly would change our region.

made a perfect point about Iran's proxies: Israel moved out of
southern Lebanon, and Hezbollah moved in. Israel moved out of Gaza,
and Hamas consequently smuggled in more arms in five years than in
the previous 30 years.

proceed to the solutions, we need to begin negotiations in order to
end them. We've

he's shown it time and time again. I think I've had my

my estimation, once again, Netanyahu
wisely focused on how special US-Israel relations are, and on the
security relations and needs.
I think Netanyahu's repetition in making these statements was his
subtle way of better gauging Obama's commitment to Israel's security
and relationships with the United States.

interacting with terrorists, terrorist sponsors, and those who aid
and abet terrorists and terrorism.
however, it seems that Americans are to understand that there is no
war on terror; that terror is the result of isolated, random
incidents that police are supposed to be able to handle; and that the
nation is no longer fighting a war on terror but, rather, trying to
assist the nations of Iraq and Afghanistan in establishing and
maintaining some brand of democracy that is based on parliamentary
approval of sharia law and "constitutions" that grant
freedom of religion to Islam only.

Aeronautic and Space Administration — is kow-towing to Islam. In a

plans for NASA. Bolden said:
I became the NASA administrator — or before I became the NASA
administrator — he [Obama] charged me with three things. One was he
wanted me to help re-inspire children to want to get into science and
math; he wanted me to expand our international relationships; and
third, and perhaps foremost, he wanted me to find a way to reach out

by over $600 million and for all practical purposes shut down any
manned space exploration. NASA has been critical to America's defense
