      Rep. Paul Broun

      Rep. Paul Broun, M.D. represents the 10th District of Georgia. In order to stop unsustainable spending, Dr. Broun has introduced an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would force Congress to balance the federal budget and return money to the taxpayers.

On the eve of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s visit to the White House, President Barack Obama demanded that Israel return to its pre-1967 borders and accept the creation of a Palestinian state. Facing a firestorm of criticism created by this undiplomatic strong-arm tactic, the president spoke to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Sunday and insisted he had been misunderstood.

The president’s speech on Sunday was disingenuous and politically motivated. President Obama undeniably called for Israel to accept a settlement with its avowed enemies that would jeopardize its own security. His proposal is a stark departure from past and present policy, and would harm U.S. vital interests in the Middle East.

If Israel agreed to return to the pre-1967 borders as the president insisted, it would not have the secure and defensible borders that President Obama claimed to support in his speech on Sunday. As Prime Minster Netanyahu reiterated in the joint session of Congress today, the pre-1967 borders are “indefensible” and would leave Israel a mere nine miles wide at its narrowest point.

The prime minister also said today that “no one should set premature parameters about borders, about building, or about anything else,” and I urge President Obama to heed his word. We need to consider what the Scripture says: “When God established His covenant with Abraham, the Lord promised blessings to those who bless Israel.” Our president should pursue policies that continue to bless the relationship between the United States and the Jewish homeland.

Rep. Paul C. Broun, M.D. represents Georgia’s 10th Congressional District.

    “President Obama should heed Netanyhoo’s words”

    All US presidents do heed the words of Israel’s leaders.

    I say let Israel decide where Israels border is. We have no business telling Israel what, when, or how they should do something. We should stop funding both sides of this ridiculous war of religions. If you think it is anything other than that you are a fool. Come on Dr. Broun uphold the Constitution! You made an oath! It is no longer affordable and was never Constitutional!

    IT LOOKS THAT USA IS NOT FRIEND OF ISRAEL ANY LONGER…at least not during what is left of the current Wshington admininstration;…so….what could posibly be behind those dynamics?

    It seems that the current admininstration is a terrorist-friendly oriented one.

    Here is something short that might stimulate curiousity for somes;

    Certain mass consensus is this; EVENTUALLY, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC WILL FIND OUT THAT MR OBAMA IS A HIDDEN MUSLIM,…somthing like a FIFTH COLUMNIST TERRORIST(LIASSON FOR DOMESTIC INFILTRATION PRO-TERRORISTS GROUPS),…PROPAGANDIST OF A ROGUE ANTI-AMERICAN,ANTI-CONSTITUTIONAL, ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE / ENEMY OF THE STATE ORGANIZATION___A VERY WELL PAID FRONT-MAN / MASS-CONTACT AGENT / SPOKE PERSON,……but not exactly ligitimate rightful individual for presidency FOR IS NOT AN AMERICAN BORN…no matter how many long form fabricated so called ‘legitimate documentation’ are to be thrown to the american public..and to the rest of the world for that matter.

    DECEPTION AND DISHONESTY / THE MASSIVE CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON IS ALREADY WELL KNOWN TO THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.

    Interesting,isn’t it?,…too far fetch?…who knows…extremely speculative?,….science fiction/ andventure scenario?…the galaxy only knows.

    Perhaps it is time to look deeper, investigate and analyze EVERYTHING!

If they don’t like it, we should then pull the billions we send over there. you sir are unpatriotic! How dare you ask a US President to heeds the words of a person who has no interest in peace with the Palestinians
