After a State Department official requested Jewish pioneers' reaction to U.S. President Barack Obama's speech at the United Nations General Assembly, the Shomron (Samaria) Liaison Office responded by explaining that the American leader failed to grasp the basic issues involved.

The American official, Cyndee Trinh of the Political Section of the U.S. Consulate-General in Jerusalem, sent an e-mail message Thursday to David HaIvri, Head of the Shomron Liaison Office, in which she asked him for a reaction to Obama's speech in New York on Wednesday. Obama said there that he “does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements" and called to "end the occupation that began in 1967."

The American leader failed to grasp the basic issues involved. “President Obama's speech reflects his failure to understand the basic issues”:

  1. The Jewish "settlements" in Judea and Samaria are not illegal; Geneva IV is not applicable.
  2. Israel has not illegally "occupied" anyone else's land.
  3. The Armistice lines of 1949 were never accepted by any Arab country as Israel's borders; nor does Israel consider them as such.
  4. A second (or third) Arab Palestinian state will not resolve core issues ("refugees," Jerusalem, etc) -- the solution is regional and comprehensive, not local and piecemeal.
  5. Opposition to Jewish building in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria is rank discrimination.
  6. "Palestinian" terrorism and incitement are ongoing and officially sanctioned; it must stop immediately before anything else.
