Photo: Bibi Netanyahu And Obama In Their 20's (Ben Nitay Speaks!)

Draw your own conclusions:

Hat tip: DM

UPDATE: I posted this last year, but it goes well with the above photo:

A 28-year old Benyamin Netanyahu, calling himself Ben Nitay, debates on the 1978 US TV show "The Advocate" against Palestinian self-determination and intriguingly suggests West Bank and Gaza Palestinians could have Israeli citizenship. He is debated (or rather questioned) by Fouad Ajami, now professor at Johns Hopkins University's SAIS. Note that Bibi says that while he opposes a Palestinian state, he thinks Palestinians could vote and have full rights in either Jordan or Israel - essentially endorsing a one-state solution.

His argument was not better then than it is today! He proposes the integration of the "Palestinians" with the possibility to become very fast a majority and outvote Jews, without a blink.
Then later, the State of Israel became worried about this fast growing foreign population, and DID consider "separation" (that was the idea behind the "disengagement".
To say, there was not then and there isn't now any ideological basis for our policies but rather we follow where the situation pushes us.

I would say there is both ideology and pragmatism--the two are not mutually exclusive. The problem begins when there is external pressure that cannot be ignored.

For that reason, while I am pleased that Bibi spoke his mind, we are not out of the woods yet.

Not by a long shot.

Can someone please explain because for the life of me, I cannot, and never will, understand why Jewish people here in America vote in majorities for left wing, socialist/communist loving politicians??? Are they of the same beliefs? Will they be so foolish to put this America hating/Israel hating inept moron back into OUR White House so he can continue to screw WE THE PEOPLE and put the final nail in the coffin of America's greatness? Will you continue to screw the rest of us by aiding in putting these socialist left wing communist loving people in our place of government? It boggles my mind!!!!!! Please spare America of this idiot and all the other liberal socialist democrat idiots in the next election. Can you please help in this go around of elections? We do have a good pool of candidates running against this idiot and I want my children and grandchildren to be able to still live in the greatest country in the world as I and the old and older generation have been able to. Do the right thing this election! VOTE BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA OUT OF OFFICE!!!
