Obama: We lied, so what?

When Ariel Sharon decided to destroy Jewish villages in Gaza, he relied on President Bush’s written promise to accept Israeli settlements in Judea and Samaria as a de facto border change. We repeatedly argued that the promise was worthless.

During his meeting with Barak, Obama’s envoy Mitchell informed the Defense Minister that Obama will not respect another president’s promise.

No wonder. In 1956, Eisenhower forced Israel to retreat from Sinai, promising American intervention if Egypt closed the Tiran Straits. When Egypt did just that in 1967, America pressured Israel to abstain from preemptive attack rather than doing anything to reopen the Straits.
