According to published reports, when President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt met with HRH Obama this past week, one item of discussion was the would be dictators’ planned speech at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly in September.
Mubarak gave strong indications that Obama would make a major policy announcenment essentially buying the so called Palestinians full basket of demands
and supporting the so called Saudi plan fully. That plan, of course, calls for “the right of return” which all observers understands means the end of Israel as a Jewish state.
In addition, it requires the handing over of Jerusalem to the Palestinians, which, as was witnessed during the 1948-1967 period under Jordan, and more directly, currently with the Temple Mount under Islamic control, there is total disregard for antiquities and a TOTAL denial of any Jewish history there.
There were clear indications that this was coming. As I have blogged here, the awarding of the Presidential medal of Freedom, and articles in “The Atlantic” and more specifically in the New York Times, by Obama’s confidant and advisor Robert Malley, both of which essentially declared the two state solution dead, were obvious road signs that this was coming.
