From Big Peace:

“Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845. “Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes – the only homes they had known for centuries – and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression,” Netanyahu said. “The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that’s taken place in occupied Mexico since then is illegal. When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico,” the Prime Minister said.

Asked if his hard-line stance could hurt the U.S.-Israel relationship, Netanyahu reiterated Israel’s commitment to America’s security and the unshakeable friendship shared by the two countries, then added, “But who was it who said, part of friendship is being able to tell your friend the truth. The ball is now in Obama’s court.”

  1. I love it!!!!………Israel Rocks!!! GOOD…..Palestinians throw them!! BAD

    The interesting part is it’s gonna happen anyway if the Mexican/American border continues to be a “one-way” sieve.

    “Jose, can you see”!

  2. Mexico will be recovering the lands lost to the US in the 19th century and this inevitable event is being facilitated by US immigration policy since 1965.

    Somewhat OT, but Sarah Palin, who I had considered to be a bit if a joke, has gone up in my estimation. In a speech in India –

    – she said:

    So as government locks up land & we lose good jobs in the ‘Conventional Resource’ arena, you may hear that “green jobs” will be the saviour! But look around the world & try telling that to the thousands of English & Scottish workers who’ve lost jobs as a result of government investments in “green energy” projects. A recent UK study shows that for every “green job” created, nearly four jobs were lost elsewhere in the economy due to lack of affordable energy! Same story in Spain – investment in “green jobs” brought massive debt, skyrocketing energy costs & 20% unemployment.

    This push for ‘green’ at the expense of ‘conventional, reliable’ sources is not a credible energy policy or economic policy. It’s “Social Engineering” by Central Government Planners. And it leads to nothing but more debt & more job loss. And taxpayers will be stuck subsidizing the failure and paying more for energy.

    Brava, Mrs Palin!

  3. The fundamental difference, clear to anyone who knows anything about the Middle East (and who cares about awkward things like people), is that the overwhelming majority of the West Bank was Palestinian in 1967, the year they were attacked and Israeli colonialisation of their country started.

  4. This does not actually change netanyahu’s point, he just forgot about california, arizona and new mexico

  5. I hadn’t realized the similarities between Texas and the west bank until now.

    I hadn’t realized the vat majority of texans want texas to leave the us

    I also hadn’t realized the US government hadn’t even given the texans representation in the senate/congress

    After all, if these two thighs aren’t the case then it would be the height of stupidity to try to compare Texas and the west bank….

  6. Yeah, it’s obvious that Israel should simply evict all of the arabs from the west bank (maybe to Egypt?) and re-create the Greater Israel of KingDavid. That will bring a lasting peace.

  7. Fair point Allan.

    Of course your position is that carbon dioxide emissions have zero effect on world temperatures and that there is absolutely no need to restrict them or to develop alternative sources of energy. Oil and coal and gas are totally benign sources of energy and will obviously last forever.

  8. The difference being is that the United States and Mexico signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo which granted the United States the majority of what is now Texas (Texas actually was an independent country that joined the US but the majority of its teritory that we know today was in Mexico), California, New Mexico etc. The 1979 Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty doesn’t grant Israel the Gaza Strip while the 1994 Israel–Jordan Treaty of Peace doesn’t explicitly grant Israel the West Bank, while Israel has never signed a Peace Treaty with Syria so Golan is completely up in the air. So the two scenarios are completely different.
