11:06 am
comment has angered israel's prime minister who said it would make it impossible for his country to protect itself well back in september the issue of the israeli settlements and the disputed territories stalled peace talks with the palestinians and later on friday benefits of yahoo would need president obama at the white house parties going into has more from our washington bureau. this thursday obama said something that many israelis would find unacceptable is suggested israel go back to its pre nine hundred sixty seven borders and according to president obama that could be the starting point to then negotiate land swap with the palestinians to create a new borders going back to nine hundred sixty seven would mean giving up the west bank is drusilla when they gather strip the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who will be meeting president obama later this afternoon sharply disagreed with the u.s. president and said he wanted to see washington's commitment to live decision by congress and president bush in two thousand and four that israel will. not have to
11:07 am
give up the occupied territories after the speech that obama gave yesterday it could be hard for him to feel such commitment at least partly by the way he's the first u.s. president who has explicitly supported the idea of going back to the nine hundred sixty seven borders as the key to the peace process in the middle east having said all this obama was nonetheless very very careful to say that the u.s. is slowly an advisor here that it is not going to force any decisions on israel because it is up to these really and palestinians to decide and so on and so forth so he basically cleared washington of any responsibility to act experts say washington's policy of nonintervention in the middle east peace process looks even more inconsistent considering america's willingness to intervene in other places in the region making demands to be leaders pushing them to feel those demands and occasionally bombing those who don't but when it comes to israelis and palestinians

11:09 am
between those who want to overthrow the syrian government and those who are afraid that whatever comes next after the assad government were to fall would be these stabilized syria or perhaps an even more hostile syria so there's a debate within the administration but i think the logic of the opposition is united states personally sanctioned. the government the president and his closest advisors and offered him the option of either leaving the transition to democracy or being swept aside while it appears to be an alternative i think the organic tendency within the obama administration now is they carry out regime change in syria and i think those who favor regime change have gotten the upper hand within the administration. and so forget r t dot com is where to go for reports and videos of the world's biggest stories and here's what's there for you right now muslims
