Obama will meet with Netanyahu today. In an interview this week Obama told the press that he would tell Netanyahu “If not now, when? And if not you, Mr. Prime Minister, then who?”.
He also will add the following threat: “There comes a point where you can’t manage this anymore, and then you start having to make very difficult choices,” The U.S., though willing to defend an isolated Israel at the United Nations and in other international bodies, might soon be unable to do so effectively. “If you see no peace deal and continued aggressive settlement construction — and we have seen more aggressive settlement construction over the last couple years than we’ve seen in a very long time,” Obama said. “If Palestinians come to believe that the possibility of a contiguous sovereign Palestinian state is no longer within reach, then our ability to manage the international fallout is going to be limited.”
So he will let the UN decide Israels fate if Netanyahu does not sign on to his Peace Deal. It must be nice to live in such a delusional world as Obama does. The Laws of your own nation mean nothing, the allies and friendships of nations that we have stood with mean nothing. You just dictate that the world should work as you say it should.
The problem with that Mr. President is that it doesn’t. You have single handedly destroyed American credibility and America’s position of strength around the world. You have betrayed the principals of our nation in every circumstance.
Bibi will do what is best for Israel, not what you dictate. He as does this author knows that it is you who time has run out on. You are the laughing stock of the world. You are in the process of destroying the Democrat party, you have devastated the American economy, and are disarming the American Military.
The clock is ticking. It is counting down to the end of the nightmare of Obama. Bibi was raised in the US, he knows American politics. He knows that not only do you Mr. President have no world wide capital, you have even less at home.
981 days remain until you not he is gone.

The trial has just begun of Oscar Pistorius for the murder of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, but, virtually alone amongst the many commentators and broadcasters covering this huge media circus, I am willing to predict to ATW readers right now the outcome of this hugely-expensive circus.
He will be found ‘Not Guilty’ despite being almost blatantly guilty of this murder, based upon one thing, and one thing only. Not the colour of his skin, not for the language of his birth as well as his culture; no, he will be exonerated of all charges because he is a Sportsman. He may be white, he may speak Afrikaans as well as English, he may well be as guilty as sin, but because he is supremely good at what he has achieved in athletics, and because he has overcome the significant hazard of having no proper legs by running on carbon fibre blades.
Even if the jury has a majority of black-skinned jurors serving on it, they will return the ‘Not Guilty’ verdict because he is supremely good at running faster than any other disabled athlete, and faster than many able-bodied runners. He is a minor god in their eyes, and we all know that ‘gods’ can do no wrong!
My Pensioner friend is right, in that the jury no longer serves; but, and it is a very big ‘but’, I doubt if even this black judge will go against the tradition in both black and white South Africa, and imprison the adored ‘Blade Runner’ for the murder of his girlfriend. As I remarked previously, ‘Gods can do no wrong’

Tricky one for the Dhimmis at the BBC. An act of gruesome mass terrorism at a Chinese rail station, dozens dead and many more injured. What to say?
Chinese officials have blamed separatists from the north-western Xinjiang region for a mass knife attack at a railway station that left 29 people dead and at least 130 wounded.
Elsewhere..but not on the BBC.
China has blamed Islamic militants from the volatile Xinjiang province for an attack by knife-wielding “terrorists” at a railway station in Kunming city that left at least 33 people dead and 130 injured.

Further to Pete’s post…more from Peter Hitchens…
Senior American, German and EU figures have gone to Kiev to egg on the anti-Russian crowds. Imagine how you would feel if Russia’s Foreign Minister turned up at SNP rallies in Edinburgh, backing Scottish independence. Putin’s Crimean games are a sarcastic response.
The unspoken message is: ‘You like breakaway movements and meddling in other people’s business? Try this for size.’ And now, having raised hopes we cannot fulfil, we have awakened the ancient passions of this cruel part of the world and who knows where our vainglorious folly will now lead?
Listening to the arrogant noises coming from London, Brussels and Washington, one could be forgiven for sympathising with Putin.

Peter Hitchens has just given an interesting interview with the American commentator Laura Ingraham on her radio show.
More than many other talking heads, he knows what he talks about, having been a foreign correspondent in Moscow as communism fell. He’s also a former Marxist-Leninist and now one of the genuinely conservative voices around. He explains why Russians feel betrayed and pushed into a corner by the West over the last couple of decades, and why Russia shouldn’t be seen as an opponent.
This is recommended listening. The interview’s here.

As Russian troops and gunmen in unmarked uniforms fan out across Crimea, seizing two airports in an apparent bid to assert dominance over the region. President Obama warns Russia there would be “costs for any military intervention.” What might those costs be, exactly, and who will try to demand the payment and in what way? A very dangerous game is being played out in the Ukraine and one wonders what Obama hopes to accomplish here, precisely? It’s perfectly obvious that Russia will not sit back and allow the Ukraine to wander into the embrace of the EU.

Inside the mind of the modern liberal intelligentsia.
Match Of The Day needs to become more diverse with fewer white men on its panel of pundits, the BBC has said. Days after announcing its dramas would include more black and gay actors to reflect modern Britain, the corporation turned its sights on sports shows. Danny Cohen, the BBC’s director of television, singled out BBC1’s Saturday football highlights programme for fresh criticism. He said: ‘If we have five pMI6 job advert (endorsed by gay rights group) seeks spies ‘committed to diversity and equality’
Meanwhile, lest you think that this modern intellectual cancer is restricted to the BBC, try the British security service MI6.
MI6 job advert (endorsed by gay rights group) seeks spies ‘committed to diversity and equality’
We are enfeebling our culture through this obsession about “diversity” and “equality”. If the BEST pundits on football are WHITE then they should get the job. Similarly if they are BLACK, or YELLOW. If MI6 want the BEST spies, I fail to fathom why this needs the endorsement of a Gay Rights advocacy group such as Stonewall nor why a “commitment to diversity and equality” even matters? Do you?

Need I say more? Hewitt has subsequently apologised but Harman and her husband Jack Dromey, remain in denial. Why haven’t they been sacked?
