Team Netanyahu To Team Bambi: Buzz Off
No More Hamastans–
After meeting with Barack Obama earlier in the week, the Team Netanyahu told Team Bambi to “Buzz Off” this weekend.
Israel Matsav reported:
If Strategic Affairs Minister Moshe (“Boogie”) Yaalon can be presumed to speak on behalf of Israel’s government, that government gave American President Barack Hussein Obama a Bronx cheer on Israel’s Channel 2 on Saturday night.
“Settlements are not the reason that the peace process is failing, they were never an obstacle, not at any stage,” Ya’alon told Channel 2 News. “Even when Israel pulled out of [Palestinian] territory, the terror continued. Even when we uprooted [Jewish] communities, we got ‘Hamastan.’ That is why I propose that we think about it – not in slogans and not with decrees.”
Netanyahu understands that peace will only come to the Middle East when the Iranian Regime quits funding and supplying weapons to Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and the radical Islamists in the Middle East.
When you solve the Iranian problem, you solve the Israeli problem.
Netanyahu met with a group of American bloggers back in 2007:

Netanyahu also announced that he won’t freeze all settlement activity.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday rebuffed U.S. calls to impose a freeze on all settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, setting the stage for friction with President Barack Obama.
“We do not intend to build any new settlements, but it wouldn’t be fair to ban construction to meet the needs of natural growth or for there to be an outright construction ban,” Netanyahu told his cabinet, according to officials.
The note of defiance came less than a week after Netanyahu held talks in Washington with Obama, who wants Israel to halt all settlement activity, including natural growth, as called for under a long-stalled peace “road map”.
