On US Israel Relations


Netanyahu Urges U.S. Return to 1845 Borders


Israeli PM calls for "just solution" to end the conflict.

Aboard Air Force Aleph (Reuters) - Speaking to reporters accompanying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his long flight to the United States tonight, Netanyahu spoke of the injustice and hardship Mexicans have endured since American forces annexed Texas in 1845.

"Tens of thousands of ordinary Mexicans were driven out of their homes - the only homes they had known for centuries - and forced to live in poverty and squalor south of the border imposed by American aggression," Netanyahu said. "The Israeli and Mexican people agree on this: This festering wound will never heal until America takes bold steps to return to the internationally accepted lines of 1845. Clearly the settlement activity that's taken place in occupied Mexico since then is illegal.

When I meet the President tomorrow I will tell him to halt all building activity in Texas immediately. Two lands for two peoples, yes, but not on land taken by force from Mexico," the Prime Minister said.

Asked if his hard-line stance could hurt the U.S.-Israel relationship, Netanyahu reiterated Israel's commitment to America's security and the unshakeable friendship shared by the two countries, then added, "But who was it who said, part of friendship is being able to tell your friend the truth. The ball is now in Obama's court." Received VIA Email
"we feel sorry for the American people who elected a president that who is so foolish to make remarks that are so irresponsible and so detached from reality!" From NY Times Video

I wish he had not made that suggestion about the USA going back to 1845 borders because president Obama might just make that his next pet project in the long list of projects to destroy the United States of America. With the wackos he has supporting him, he just may do it too.

All the best,

In 1844 there was no US/Mexican border. The southern US bordered the Republic of Texas. The Texas border extended up into what is today Wyoming. There are those of us in Texas that think we could do MUCH better without the rest of the US dragging us down with it. Give em hell Bibi!

Enjoy your posts, however the 1957 borders would suffice. With Hawaii no longer a state, the big O would no longer qualify!
