How Barack Obama Destroyed Chances for Middle East Peace

The Palestinians have changed their position. They are only willing to negotiate if Israel accepts returning to the 1967 borders. That will never happen. Thanks, Barack Obama.
(JPost) – Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat said that the Palestinians were ready to restart peace negotiations if based around the principles US President Barack Obama laid out in his State Department dress on the Middle East, the Washington Post reported Tuesday.

According to the report, Erekat, who met Monday with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and other senior White House officials, said that if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu accepted Obama’s platform of a return to pre-1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, then he would have a partner for negotiations.
He also said that according to what the prime minister said at the US Congress during his Washington visit, “he’s not a partner for peace.”
