President Barack Obama continues to push Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to agree to a peace deal over land disputes in Palestine, the Blaze reports. Jeffery Goldberg of the Bloomberg View writes that President Obama is prepared to warn Netanyahu that Israel could have a “bleak future” characterized by “international isolation and demographic disaster” if Israel cannot compromise. Although Obama claims that America’s ties to Israel are solid and unwavering, he is troubled by Israel’s “aggressive settlement construction” that continues to happen in the controversial West Bank. Yuval Steinitz, Strategic Affairs Minister, addressed Obama’s warning by insisting that Israel does want to promote a political settlement. The members of the Israeli government, he continues, “are justifiably concerned about our national security. There is no reason to pressure Israel. We are only caring for Israel’s most fundamental needs.”
