Obama touts US military aid in meeting with Netanyahu

Obama and Netanyahu met for a short time on the sidelines at the United Nations General Assembly and discussed various issues.

Mr. Netanyahu said "the greatest opportunity" in U.S. The memo, signed a week ago, provides Israel with the largest single pledge of military assistance in USA history - $3.8 billion per year over a decade.

"It is a very hard and risky time in the Middle East, and we want to make sure that Israel has the full capabilities it needs in order to keep the Israeli people safe", he said.

On Sept. 9, Netanyahu sparked outrage when he stated in a video that the Palestinians wanted the Israeli occupation of the West Bank to withdraw because they were aiming for "ethnic cleansing".

"We do have concerns around settlement activity", Mr Obama said, adding that the United States wanted to help Israel pursue peace.

Obama said the deal is indicative of the "unbreakable" bond between the United States and Israel.

Without mentioning Hamas's rise to power or the tenuous nature of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas's rule, Obama used the press briefing to declare, "We need to keep alive the idea of Israel as a secure country alongside a Palestinian state".

The original production was staged by Alan Schneider, who had introduced American audiences to Beckett's Waiting For Godot . Albee brought back " The Zoo Story " to startling effect in 2007 with " Edward Albee's Peter and Jerry ".

The next president and Congress should rescind and renegotiate the new $38 billion 10-year "memorandum of understanding" signed last week between Israel and the Obama administration, Sen.

Cruz in a statement said he rejected the language in the letter's opening that "the only way to resolve the conflicts between the two is through direct negotiations that lead to a sustainable two-state solution with a future state of Palestine living in peace and security with Israel".

Even as the USA continues to voice its opposition to the West Bank settlements, Israel has demanded tighter Palestinian security to crack down on militants responsible for a raft of stabbings and shootings against Israelis in recent months.

Israel Hayom's Boaz Bismuth tells the free daily's readers that the country will see plenty of Obama after he leaves office, as he promised to Netanyahu. The Obama administration, meanwhile, has been dismayed by periodic comments by the Israeli leader suggesting he's less-than-serious about the two-state solution that has been the basis of all serious peace efforts for decades.

Obama made reference to a $38 billion military assistance agreement signed by the two allies on September 14.

"We'll set up a tee time", Obama quipped. "I'm sure President Obama will do so tomorrow as well". "We've raised those directly with the Israeli government", Ben Rhodes, the president's deputy national security adviser, said Tuesday.

According media reports Netanyahu pushed back on this.
