The Obama Cease-Fire in Israel

The president was more hands-on with the cease fire than previously known:

Throughout his trip in South East Asia he was constantly on the phone with both Morsi and Netanyahu, before and after his meetings with the leaders of China and Japan. The president even made time to speak with both leaders during a dinner held as part of a summit of East Asian leaders.

His goal – creating the conditions needed for a ceasefire. Publicly he praised Morsi and Netanyahu, and behind the scenes he was pressuring them to bring the conflict between Israel and Hamas to an end.

He didn’t go on TV and make loud, obnoxious threats — he didn’t “McCain” the crisis. He handled it quietly and calmly. And the cease-fire is holding.

    He seems to be one of the few politicians who understand the time for campaigning is over and the time for governing has started again.

      Time to stop campaigning and start “governing” FOREIGN NATIONS.
      Maybe we should start with the domestic issues and stop policing the world.
      Glad to see your leader is back to drone striking innocent people in foreign countries all whom seem to be enemies of Israel and have never committed acts of aggression against us.
      If he wasn’t a shill for the apartheid nation of Israel, maybe he would call for a notice of their crimes against humanity.

    ““McCain” the crisis.”

    Ha ha!

    So simple, yet, voluminous in its implication.
