JERUSALEM — The Obama administration asked the Palestinian Authority not to make any major demands until after the presidential election in November, a senior PA official told KleinOnline.

The PA official, speaking on condition his name be withheld, said that Obama promised to renew stalled Israeli-Palestinian negotiations on the basis of the 1967 borders, meaning an Israeli withdrawal from eastern sections of Jerusalem as well as from Judea and Samaria, also referred to as the West Bank.

“We were asked by the (U.S.) administration not to make special demands or scandals during the elections,” said the official.

“After elections, the negotiations will be renewed on basis of the Clinton plan, and Obama’s speech in Cairo of the 1967 borders,” the official said.

The Clinton plan is a reference to the formula used during the Camp David negotiations in the summer of 2000 that saw sections of Jerusalem in which Jews predominantly live go to Israel, while areas inhabited by Arabs would become a Palestinian state.  The negotiations also called for a near complete Israeli evacuation of the Gaza Strip and West Bank.

KleinOnline previously reported that several major purported Arab neighborhoods in Jerusalem are actually built illegally on Jewish-owned land, resulting in an Arab majority in those sections.

Obama to ‘take on’ Netanyahu during 2nd term?

This is not the first time the PA claimed the Obama administration asked them to hold off until after this year’s election.

Last September, KleinOnline quoted a top PA official saying the Obama administration told the Palestinian Authority it cannot significantly help advance a Palestinian state until after the election.

The official, however, said the U.S. will press for a Palestinian state quickly if President Obama is reelected.

“The main message we received from the U.S. is that nothing will happen in a serious way before the 2012 elections,” said the official.

Earlier this month, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius said he expects Obama to “take on” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during a second presidential term.

Appearing as a panel member on the syndicated Chris Matthews Show, Ignatius stated: “What I hear from the White House is looking towards a second term on foreign policy, which I cover, as an opportunity to do the broad things that would establish an Obama agenda. He came into office passionate about the Middle East, about the Palestinian issue. I’d see him taking another really strong crack at that.”

“Go head to head with Netanyahu again?” Matthews then asked, according to a transcript provided by Newsbusters.

“Yeah, and I think, this White House thinks… -that he’s had success, that that’s an area – who would have said that an anti-war President, candidate, four years ago, could run on a strong foreign policy record?”

    Obama will celebtrate when the State of Israel is destroyed.  He will be at the homes of the Liberal Jewish Hollywood elite who will celebrate also.  They will celebrate when all the Jews are killed and they are left to live because they are special. Barbara Streisand would love to see Jews die in Israel.  She could sing a song about it. 

    Obama will destroy the economy in this country.  He will blame Bush.  He will hide this by naming the San Andreas fault after Bush and call it Bush’s Fautl.

    Obama and his Chicago thugs are playing hardball.  The American people are too stupid to realize this and the country is headed down the tubes.  Obama will weaken American and this will lead to the end of the free world as we know it.

    This article  discloses that the Socialist Democratic Party is working side by side with the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate terrorist organizations in Gaza when it uncovers that Obama has asked the Palestinians to lay low until after he is reelected in November, 2012 and that afterwards he will continue coercing Israel to capitulate to the demands of the Muslim Brotherhood affiliate terrorist organizations in Gaza, which includes evacuating East Jerusalem. These activities are part of the fulfillment of Rev.18:2, which foretold that Babylon the Great, which is the USA, would become a prison for every hateful bird, which includes the Socialists in the Democratic Party, the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization and its affiliates. The leading role that the Democratic Party Socialists has caused the USA to take in coercing Israel to capitulate to the demands of the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization affiliates in Gaza are part of the  the fulfillment of Rev 18:24, which foretold that these Socialists in the Democratic Party in the USA would cause America to become the leader in propagating the killing of Christians and everyone that is slain on the earth.   
    Rev 18:2 and he cried out with a mighty voice, saying “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird.
    Rev 18:24 “And in her was found the  blood of prophets and of  saints and of  all who have been slain on the earth.”

    And the American Jews will still vote for Obama.  Because they are Liberals first, Jew second.  Sad that.
