The Obama Regime told Mahmoud Abbas, leader of the Palestinian Authority, that it cannot significantly help advance a Palestinian state until after the 2012 presidential elections, a top PA official told KleinOnline.
(Gee, Barry, we already knew that, which is why pro-Israel Republicans are beating Democrats even in Democrat stronghold districts like Anthony Weiner’s in NYC)
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 (toward a Palestinian state) before the 2012 elections,” said the official.
“Obama will not accept the Palestinian request of a state at the (United Nations) Security Council and cannot help on the ground for now,” said the official.
“We were told to wait for Obama’s reelection, and that before then nothing serious will happen for a state,” the official continued. “But after the reelection, the U.S. said the schedule will be short to reach a Palestinian state.”
Obama’s treatment of Israel was a significant issue in the recent election of Republican Bob Turner to former Congressman Anthony Weiner’s seat in a district that had not elected a GOP candidate since 1923.
Also, presidential contenders like Rick Perry and Michele Bachmann have been strongly criticizing Obama on Israel. MORE AT: KleinOnline
