The proposal from the Obama Administration is a trick. Israel will be left betrayed.
Israeli Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau on Tuesday warned that the proposal whereby the Obama Administration will provide Israel with various gifts and assistance in exchange for another Jewish building freeze is a trick, just as most previous American diplomatic promises have been phony.
Speaking to Voice of Israel Radio, Landau decried the fact that the proposal is being misrepresented in the Israeli media, and even to most Israeli lawmakers.
According to the publicized version of the proposal, Israel will impose a 90-day Jewish building freeze in Judea and Samaria (excluding eastern Jerusalem) in order to facilitate a resumption of direct peace talks with the Palestinians. In return, Israel will receive American support at the UN, more recognition of its security demands, and 20 F-35 fighter jets.
Most Israelis are erroneously led to believe that they are going to score a major diplomatic victory and some free military hardware just for making a small, temporary gesture, explained Landau.
Since the Palestinians have already rejected the temporary and limited nature of the building freeze, there is almost no chance that Israel will be provided the promised benefits for making the gesture. Instead, just as in the past, Landau said Israel will find itself betrayed.
“Israel has failed to learn from the past,” he lamented. “President Obama is ignoring previous promises that President Bush presented to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Those promises, too, were portrayed as a great diplomatic achievement.”

Like a typical glossy and hybrid politician, Barack Hussein Obama refuse to give Israel a signed letter. Oral agreements are as we know, not worth the paper they are “written” on. The back yard deals of darkness are back.
But you can be sure of one thing. The Israeli politicians who bow down to Obamas will be handsomely rewarded. Not only with lofty promises and honor, but with physical assets. The accounts might already have been blessed with goodies from Washington.
Strange is it not. Even Israeli politicians have a price tag?
