The Obama administration continues to pressure Israel to make suicidal concessions to the Palestinians. The latest threat by George Mitchell to withdraw America's loan guarantees to Israel constitutes nothing less than blackmail. However, if the U.S. were to withhold its aid to Israel it would be shooting itself in the foot. That aid comes with strings attached. It requires Israel to buy its military weapons and other products from the U.S. Those purchases contribute to our economy in no small way. The cutoff of aid would surely cost some Americans their jobs.

It’s way past time for all those liberal Jews who foolishly continue their support of Barack Obama to wake up and help make him a one term president. Shame, shame on them if they continue to back this Muslim loving supporter of the Palestinians!

On eve of visit to region, American special envoy threatens Israel with sanctions if it fails to advance peace talks, two-state solution.

WASHINGTON – On the eve of his visit to the Middle East, US special envoy George Mitchell threatened that his country would freeze its aid [in the form of loan guarantees] to Israel if the Jewish state failed to advance peace talks with the Palestinians and a two-state solution.

According to American law, Mitchell said, the US can freeze its support for aid to Israel.
