President Obama Claims He Has Done More For The Security Of Israel Than Any Other President, But His Record Tells A Different Story

President Obama Discussing Israel Last Night: “I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration." Politico’s Playbook

May 2011: Majority Leader Cantor On President Obama’s Leadership On Israel. “I strongly disagree with the President on the notion that somehow the '67 lines should be a starting point for any discussion having to do with the Arab-Israeli conflict. I think that the prior Administration had said all along that the '67 lines really don't reflect realities on the ground, and that's one of the reasons why I disagree with it. I also think that the fundamental problem in the Arab-Israeli conflict is that you have parties around Israel that frankly refuse to recognize its right to exist as a Jewish state. And until that recognition is there, it's very difficult to see how Israel can accomplish any lasting peace." CNN

March 2011: Concessions The Administration Has Called For Endangers Israel’s Security. “The Administration has called on Israel to make sweeping concessions that I believe will endanger its security, but it doesn’t seem to demand similar from the Palestinians. That’s why I support bipartisan efforts in the House and Senate that call on the White House to put an end to anti-Israel incitement in the Palestinian territories. No matter how much we desire Mideast peace, it will remain a pipe dream so long as Palestinian culture makes martyrs of terrorists who target innocents.” Press Release

October 2010: The Administration Continues To Send Mixed Signals On Israel. “There’s no question there are mixed signals coming out of the policies furthered by this administration,” Cantor said, adding, “They’ve yet to acknowledge the right of the Jewish state to exist ... We need to send a signal to our allies in Israel that they can count on us to stand up for human rights.” The Daily Beast
