What should Obama do when Israel defies him and keeps building illegal settlements?

I think Obama should send the US Army in and have them tear down the settlements if Israel refuses to do it.

    If Israel defies Obama, he has numerous options. I'd hit them where it hurts the most, in their pocket book. He could:

    1. Reduce or eliminate U.S. aid to Israel.

    2. Limit private donations by American citizens to Israel.

    3. Tighten the restraints on AIPAC, the pro-Israeli lobby in Washington, D. C.

    4. Instruct the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. to not veto the sanctions against Israel that are routinely passed by the other nations.

    5. Increase aid to Israel's neighbors.

    6. Quit supplying Israel with American-made arms.

    7. Introduce trade restrictions on American commerce with Israel.

    These are all within the President's powers, and some combination of them would bring Netanyahu to his knees pronto.

    i'm so bored to death in listening to the nonsense pass over interpretation from the bible asserting that Palestine belongs to the Jews. it is not God who created Israel; it is the UN on the price of the Palestinians. If the Jews what to pass back 2 000 years to supposedly back there land declare, properly we could pass back some thousand greater. historical relics going back greater desirable than 3 000 years of course instruct that it grow to be no longer Hebrews who the place the 1st civilization of Palestine. Israel would not look to or would not desire to understand that they can't make amends for a criminal offense with yet another crime and make it appear like a concession. it is relatively the Palestinians who're making the concession via having given up area of their land. Israel should not be granted any land outdoors the 1967 boarders as a results of fact it is Israel who began the 1967 conflict interior the 1st place via lunching a ask your self attack on Egypt. much greater, the 1967 boarders is yet yet another Palestinian concession from the 1948 boarders.

    Comrade Obama will fall down on his knees and beg. When that fails he will march off in a big fit because he didn't get his way. The land belongs to Israel since it was taken in a war. Besides, doen't Comrade Obama have enough to screw up here at home?

    Obama was elected President of the United States.

    He was not coronated as King, and certainly not King of the World.

    He has to learn that when seated at a table with leaders of other nations that they are his equals and cannot be dictated to.

    If the President of another country, no matter how small decides to do something (ie. kill all people who wear red socks). Obama does not have the right to tell them to stop.

    He can urge them to stop. He can try to influence them to stop (offer a carrot in the way of financial or military aid - or offer the stick in the way of sanctions).

    Using the US military is not in the best interests of the country. No one from Congress would support him - Democrat OR Republican!

    That would be a act of war.

    So you want to go to war with Israel?

    Israel tried what Obama whats on the west bank. They kick all Jews out of the west bank and that just made it easier for them to fire rockets into Israel. So israel is not going to do that again.

    The US should back UN ratification of the two state and carry it out, economic, weapon, and loan restrictions.Short of military action, that is about all he can do.
