President Obama met with the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu yesterday. The body language during the awkward photo op said it all.

If you missed it, below are Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks following President Obama’s call to return to 1967 borders in a speech that could at least partly be described as Cialis for Jimmy Carter. Netanyahu’s response is best summed up with one sentence: “Peace based on illusions will crash upon rocks of reality”…

According to polls on Election Day 2008, around 77% (give or take) of Jewish voters pulled the lever for Obama. Will that drop in 2012? If not somebody should have more explaining to do than Arnold Schwarzenegger on Father’s Day, but I won’t hold my breath.

Dan Friedman at Big Peace turns it around to put Obama’s call to return to 1967 borders into perspective for many Americans with this: Netanyahu Urges U.S. Return To 1845 Borders. I wrote “many” Americans instead of “all” because there are some who would love the idea.

And what discussion of world politics wouldn’t be complete without finding out what a rock star thinks about it all? This one’s pretty good though. Gene Simmons, who was born in Israel, doesn’t like the concept of “1967 borders”… to say the least:
