Obama Planning Sanctions Against Israel

It has been reported that Socialist Emperor Pinocchio Obama is planning to issue sanctions against Israel for building housing in East Jerusalem, presumably the Arab part of Israel's capital city.  Let's be clear.   Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel.  The Israeli government has the right to approve housing, or any other building in Jerusalem, without interference from Obama or anybody else.  This is one of the reasons why the two state solution for Israel and the Palestinians is absurd.  The West Bank should be part of Jordan, as it was for decades, with Amman as its capital city.   The Gaza Strip should be part of Egypt, again as it was for decades, if not centuries, with Cairo as its capital city.   We have to stop pretending that a two state solution in Israel is ever going to be feasible.  The Palestinians have proven over and again that they cannot govern themselves in spite of the billions of dollars we have given them over the years. 

Most important, while Obama is easing sanctions on Iran, that is developing nuclear weapons and the missiles to carry them, he is threatening sanctions on Israel, the only real democracy in the Middle East and our ally.   How on earth does this make any sense.  Obama continues to implement a feckless foreign policy that has made a mess in the world.  The Middle East is on fire.   We face more Terrorist threats than ever.  Russia has invaded a European sovereign country.   China becomes more belligerent by the day.  And, Iran is closer to having nuclear weapons than ever.   Israel is the only reliable ally we have in the Middle East.   Obama needs to back off and mind his own business.  The Israeli's have every right to build housing, or any other building anywhere in their country they choose to do so.
