Bibi: "We are determined to defend our borders..."

This from the Associated Press May 15, 2011: Arab protestors descend on the Israeli borders

MAJDAL SHAMS, Golan Heights – Mobilized by calls on Facebook, thousands of Arab protesters marched on Israel's borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza on Sunday in an unprecedented wave of demonstrations, sparking clashes that left at least 15 people dead in an annual Palestinian mourning ritual marking the anniversary of Israel's birth.
In a surprising turn of events, hundreds of Palestinians and supporters poured across the Syrian frontier and staged riots, drawing Israeli accusations that Damascus, and its ally Iran, orchestrated the unrest to shift attention from an uprising back home. It was a rare incursion from the usually tightly controlled Syrian side and could upset the delicate balance between the two longtime foes.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who heads to Washington at the end of the week, said he ordered the military to act with "maximum restraint" but vowed a tough response to further provocations.
"Nobody should be mistaken. We are determined to defend our borders and sovereignty," he declared in a brief address broadcast live on Israeli TV stations.

Ah, that wonderful peaceful, freedom loving Arab spring spurred on by the new social media [i.e., Facebook and Twitter] that just want "give peace a chance" and be friends with America and Israel.

And now we will have this week Obama reaching out once again to this moderate Muslim world. How can this be a renewal of reaching out to the Muslim world when that's all Obama has been doing since he has been president.      President Obama says we are not at war with Muslims, just Al Qaida.   Hammas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, they are not Al Qaida so they are not a problem.
They may not be a problem to you Barack, but then again you don't give a damn about the state of Israel.
