Obama's Israel “Auschwitz Borders” Policy
(INN).By Mark Langfan.
A close analysis of President Obama’s May 19, 2011 Middle East Policy Speech shows where he may be heading if reelected - from a militarized Palestinian State to bringing in the "refugees".In 1967, it was Abba Eban, the left-leaning Israel Ambassador to the UN, that equated the Green Line or the pre-1967 War armistice lines to “Auschwitz Borders.” In 2012, President Obama has been touted by some as “no better friend of Israel.” However, President Obama’s current 2012 Israel policy on Israel is unchanged from his famous May 19, 2011 speech at the US State Departmentwhere Obama clearly defined his policy was one of pushing Israel back to the Auschwitz borders of the 1967 Green Line.
Obama’s Democratic defenders falsely claimed in 2011, and now, in 2012, that Obama’s “Israel Policy” is “nothing new” and merely a continuation of decades of American policy. America’s decade-old policy has been “defensible borders,” and the 1967 ceasefire lines are “a New Holocaust Borders.” Now that President Obama faces reelection, and a possible second-term unbridled by the politics of getting re-elected, Obama’s May 19, 2011 speech may very well become Obama’s blueprint for a second term 2013 “surprise.”
Therefore it is vital to carefully revisit President Obama’s policy of “Auschwitz Borders” for Israel as defined in his 2011 speech, so as to avoid Obama’s “dream” from becoming America’s and Israel’s “nightmare” in 2013.The following is an analysis of President Obama’s May 19, 2011 Middle East Policy Speech: Obama Text May 19, 2011:
