But during his remarks at the Saban Forum on Saturday, Obama let the cat out of the bag. Gaza, he admitted, is a separate entity. A peace deal, he explained, “is going to have to happen in stages.”
As he sees it, a peace deal will involve an Israeli withdrawal from Judea and Samaria. A post-Israel Judea and Samaria will be so wonderful that the Gazans will decide to join it.
Obama explained, “If there is a model where young Palestinians in Gaza are looking and seeing that in the West Bank Palestinians are able to live in dignity, with self-determination, and suddenly their economy is booming and trade is taking place because they have created an environment in which Israel is confident about its security and a lot of the old barriers to commerce and educational exchange and all that has begun to break down, that’s something that the young people of Gaza are going to want. And the pressure that will be placed for the residents of Gaza to experience that same future is something that is going to be I think overwhelmingly appealing.”And the lion will lie down with the lamb and everyone will join hands and sing Kumbaya.
And I'm the Queen of Sheba.
For those "young invicibles" waging jihad (and that includes West Bank Palestinians) the only thing that's overwhelmingly appealing is the idea of getting rid of that uppity Zionist entity (because its very existence contravenes the heart and soul of Islamic doctrine). Barry the Utopian appears to be committed to making that happen.
