A common theme among Obama’s advisors, whether they be Deomocrats or RINO’s is their view of Israel/American Jews as the cause of all the problems in the Middle East. So like Zbigniew Brezezinski, Snowcroft is in favor of Israel retreating to her 1967 borders.
WASHINGTON (JTA) – Two former national security advisers close to Barack Obama advised the president-elect to outline the contours of a Palestinian-Israeli settlement as soon as possible.
“We believe that the Arab-Israeli peace process is one issue that requires priority attention,” Zbigniew Brzezinski and Brent Scowcroft wrote in the Washington Post opinion page on Friday. “The major elements of an agreement are well known. A key element in any new initiative would be for the U.S. president to declare publicly what, in the view of this country, the basic parameters of a fair and enduring peace ought to be. These should contain four principal elements: 1967 borders, with minor, reciprocal and agreed-upon modifications; compensation in lieu of the right of return for Palestinian refugees; Jerusalem as real home to two capitals; and a nonmilitarized Palestinian state.”
Multiple reports in recent days have revealed that Scowcroft, the national security adviser to President Ford and the first President Bush, has advised Obama since before his run for the presidency.
Obama staffers have denied that Brzezinski, President Carter’s national security adviser, was a campaign adviser; however, they acknowledge that Obama solicited Brzezinski’s endorsement, and Brzezinski acted as a surrogate for Obama on a campaign call with Democrats Abroad.
The Washington Post piece, entitled “Middle East priorities for Jan. 21,” says that “not everyone in the Middle East views the Palestinian issue as the greatest regional challenge, but the deep sense of injustice it stimulates is genuine and pervasive.” Achieving a deal would “change the region’s psychological climate, putting Iran back on the defensive and putting a stop to its swagger.”
So never mind that that Muslim countries have 600 times more land than Israel. Snowcroft and Brzezinski believe all the trouble that those rogue Middle Eastern states cause in the world is because of Israel having one tiny country in their midst.
Even that Israeli leftist Abba Eban referred to the 1967 pre-war borders as Auschwitz lines, and they would leave the tiny country indefensible.
