Schumer calls for new Israeli leader to replace Netanyahu in Senate floor speech
Schumer called for new elections in Israel in a floor speech on Thursday, saying this is the only option for a two state solution to move forward.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., has called on Israel to elect a new prime minister to replace Benjamin Netanyahu in order to move towards a lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians in the form of a two-state solution.

In what was billed as a major speech on a two-state solution, Schumer said on the Senate floor on Thursday that Netanyahu was one of four obstacles to this solution.

The majority leader said he believed, "Prime Minister Netanyahu has lost his way by allowing his political survival to take the precedence over the best interests of Israel."

Along with Netanyahu, Schumer listed "Hamas, and the Palestinians who support and tolerate their evil ways, radical, right-wing Israelis in government and society, [and] Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas" as the other obstacles.

According to Schumer, who is Jewish, Israeli elections are "the only way to allow for a healthy and open decision-making process about the future of Israel." He added that he believed a majority of Israelis also recognize a need for change in their government.

In his reasoning for calling on elections to potentially replace Netanyahu, Schumer explained: "He has put himself in coalition with far-right extremists like Ministers Smotrich and Ben-Gvir, and as a result, he has been too willing to tolerate the civilian toll in Gaza, which is pushing support for Israel worldwide to historic lows."

Schumer emphasized that Israel will not be able to overcome such a poor public image. "Israel cannot survive if it becomes a pariah," he said.

After Schumer's speech, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., took to the floor and addressed the remarks of his Democratic colleague, but did not call him out by name.

"The Jewish state of Israel deserves an ally that acts like one," he said, condemning the call for new Israeli elections as "unprecedented."

"Israel's unity, government and security cabinet deserve the deference befitting a sovereign democratic country."

The Kentucky Republican added that "foreign observers" who aren't able to recognize these important distinctions should not give their own prescriptions. McConnell additionally claimed the Democratic Party's issue is not with Netanyahu, but with the state of Israel itself.

As recently as January, Netanyahu rejected the prospect of two states, claiming, "I will not compromise on full Israeli security control over all the territory west of Jordan - and this is contrary to a Palestinian state."

The Palestinian Authority has also reiterated its desire for the territories of Gaza, the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with Jerusalem as the capital.

Ain't gonna happen.

Israel has already taken out nuclear reactors in two Arab countries Syria and Iraq.

The attack on Saddam's reactor was much earlier ("Operation Opera", 1981). Because of the attack on the reactor (which of course was built above ground), the Iranians decided to build their reactors buried deep below the surface making them impossible (or nearly impossible) to destroy.

It was an amazingly successful attack. IIRC, i4 Israeli planes took part (F-15s and F16s)-- not a single one was shot down. And there were minimal casualties on the ground.

The only defence Israel has against nuclear missiles sent from Iran would be the Iron Dome system but how effective could that be in the event of hypersonic missiles and an explosion just ABOVE a city, AND the threat of nuclear retaliation that would turn Iran into a glass parking lot but that would be unfortunate since it's been reported that the Iranian people generally favour Israel.

Interestingly, Iran had launched an attack on the Iraqi reactor earlier, but it failed to destroy the reactor:

In an air attack codenamed   Operation Scorch Sword, Iran attacked and damaged the site on 30 September 1980, with two   F-4 Phantoms, shortly after the outbreak of the   Iran–Iraq War . [52]  

Due to last minute Iranian concerns that the reactor had been already fueled and could release   radioactive fallout   if hit, they did not attack the actual reactor dome, but the control room, research/centrifuge facilities, and the adjacent buildings. 

The French and Italian technicians promptly left Iraq, and nearly withdrew from the project, but some later returned in February 1981 and began to repair the damage. [56]

Ironically, (IMO) is the map--( i.e.geography of the area). Israel is so tiny that an Atomic explosion there would carry radiation to surrounding areas. Probably killing most Palestinians-- and any hopes of a Palestinian state. The Palestinians are greatly loved throughout most of the world-- - would Iran want to be responsible for eliminating them with nuclear fallout?

 And probably a lot of radiation would reach Iran itself.......

I am very optimistic about -- about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government. I spent -- I’ve been there 17 times now. I go about every two months -- three months. I know every one of the major players in all the segments of that society. It’s impressed me. I’ve been impressed how they have been deciding to use the political process rather than guns to settle their differences. Joe Biden.

The vote to go to war in Afghanistan was approved 98 to 0 in the Senate and 420 to 1 in the House. 

According to Pew, a year later, 56% of Americans favored “coming to the aid of Afghanistan to help it recover from the war,” and over 66% agreed that the US would have to continue to “deploy troops there to maintain civil order” for the foreseeable future.

The goal of Bush and Obama  was to reach a point in Afghanistan when the violence would be sufficiently low and/or the Afghan government strong enough to allow us to withdraw without significantly increasing the risk of a resurgent terrorist threat.

Bush was able to keep between 10,000 and 20,000 troops in the country, and U.S. casualties in these years were relatively low. For 4-5 years our troop footprint was relatively low, at 10,000 and 20,000 troops with lower casualties. 

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman SEN Carl Levin (D-Mich.), chairman of the SASC reported after his visit in 2011, that the Afghan people in former Taliban strongholds were “returning to villages” and had “growing confidence in the ability of Afghan and coalition forces to provide security.”

Members of Congress, including most Dems were enthusiastic about nation-building. Congress frequently demanded greater civilian efforts to complement military action, they approved billions of dollars in aid and constantly pressed the administration to increase such efforts. 

This wasn't a one-man (Bush II) mission.

Schumer should be careful what he wishes for.

Israelis are sick of Bibi. He is corrupt; but more importantly he allowed Oct 7th to happen. Israelis aren't Americans- they don't forgive politicians like US voters did with Bush Jr over 9/11.

There are Zionist politicians that are far to the right of Bibi. Anyone that thinks the Israelis are ready to stop fighting in Gaza and sing Kumbaya; reign in the IDF and settlers attacking Palestinians in the West Bank; or starting treating non Jews in Israel any better- isn't paying attention.

What Israeli voters put in Bibi's place might have Democrats praying for his return.

Take a look at the last several Israeli Prime Ministers- you have to go back to Ehud Barak to find anyone even close to being a moderate.

My tax money goes to both Israel and the PA (very little of it actually reaches the Palestinians in need)- with all of the homeless and starving we have in this country it would be better served staying here.

What would the right honorable Chuck Schumer do if Benjamin Netanyahu wins re-election?  Would Schumer question the legitimacy of the election?  Schumer is only listening to those that want to remove Netanyahu but that doesn't necessarily mean Netanyahu couldn't survive an election and remain in power.  Schumer's problem is he is only looking at the situation as a public relations activity; it's not about the security of Israel.

Even more entertaining is Schumer citing the four obstacles for achieving a two state solution as Netanyahu, Hamas, Abbas, and right wing Palestinians and Israelis.  And that list of obstacles omits the biggest obstacle of all: Iran.   So, according to Schumer the only thing we need is for liberals to take over the entire Middle East.  Nuthin' to it.  We only have to rewrite a few thousand years of history. 

Apparently Chuck Schumer is even more delusional than Joe Biden.  At least Biden can use his Catholicism as an excuse.  What's Schumer's excuse?

Thousands in Israel have taken to the streets in two separate protests, one demanding an immediate release of hostages from Gaza and another calling for drafting ultra-Orthodox Jewish men into the military.

The protests are public displays of growing divisions in Israeli society and politics five months into the Gaza war.

Protesters calling for the release of hostages march from a Tel Aviv square carrying enlarged images of women held in Gaza, briefly blocking the highway at one point.

“Bringing them back as soon as possible will be the only image of victory from this damned war,” one woman says into a megaphone. Others chanted: “Deal, now!”

In another rally, Israelis protested against Netanyahu’s coalition government, demanding an end to the exemption of ultra-Orthodox Jewish men from compulsory military service.

Some 10,000 people participated in the demonstration, also held in Tel Aviv.

The Supreme Court in 2018 voided a law waiving the draft for ultra-Orthodox men, citing a need for the burden of military service to be shared across Israeli society.

Yes-- because one of those country has the draft-- the other one doesn't.

(And the discrepancy is even greater with the percentages of women serving-- because one of those countries drafts women-- and one doesn't.)

So....guess which country has a significantly higher percentage of both men and women serving? (The country with the draft-- or the country without a draft?)  jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif

Please. Tess, you are arguing that the world is flat and black is white.  Don't embarrass yourself any further.

We may not all be friends, but IMO all of us are like a family.  You don't have to like all the members of your family, but there is a connection between all of us that is important to me, especially since I'm on the other side of the world of almost everybody on this site. and NT is a way in which I can feel close to others and converse with them.  Very few people speak English well where I am and my wife doesn't speak English well so this is my way to be able to carry on intelligent conversations about many things that she really knows nothing about anyway.  I'll leave it to others, like yourself, to base your friendships only with those who are in total agreement with you, but I have good relationships on NT with many who hold different views than I do on some issues, yet the same on others, because I don't follow "party lines" exclusively and am open to accept or reject specific issues from both sides.

Is the Majority Leader of the U.S. Senate advocating for "regime change" in a foreign government?

Schumer believes Israel is an American colony, not a democracy to be respected, so he interferes in their elections.
