It’s official: Obama has betrayed our closest ally, Israel.
If Israel cowed to Obama’s demands and gave back all the land they rightfully won in the 1967 “Six Days War,” they would not only be reduced to only 8 miles wide, but they would be forced to give up the Wailing Wall, the Temple Mount, the portion of the city which was Old Jerusalem, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Garden of Gethsemane, among other treasured historic sites.
In Islamic tradition, any sites which hold religious significance in lands that they conquer must be destroyed or converted to the worship of Allah. This is why they built an enormous Mosque on the Temple Mount and walled off the Golden Gates of the Eastern Wall, rendering the surrounding land useless by converting it to a Muslim graveyard.
If Hamas ever got their hands on these sites, you can guarantee they would immediately destroy everything of Judeo/Christian religious significance and erect their own Muslim shrines in their place. Also, once built, Muslim holy sites can never be moved or torn down – to do so is a direct attack on Islam itself and would result in violent retaliation.
Of course, the Arab world is disappointed that Obama didn’t go further – they want Israel (and the Jewish people) eliminated completely, and giving away portions of land will never change that.
