Obama Sides With Palestinians
President Obama is endorsing the Palestinians' demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel. Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations. “This is flawed on so many levels – I am so appalled. This president is so reckless and naive, and wrong-headed. He has such a lack of understanding about the Middle East and Israel. How many times are we going to give land for peace with no tangible result? What part of this doesn’t the President understand?

Palin 'Still Seriously Considering' Presidential Run
One name that is very much on the presidential candidate radar is former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Sean spoke with Palin about her potential candidacy for presidency in 2012. “I’m still assessing the field because I know it is still going to change, the line-up. People are going to come and go before that legal deadline is imposed on us to have to make the decision. So, I'm still not ready to make an announcement,” Palin told Sean. “I am still seriously considering it, and praying about it and talking about it with family. Because of course it is a monumental leap for a family to put themselves out there again in the limelight and be ready for the scrutiny that ensues in a campaign,” the former governor explained. Palin also gave her thoughts on the field of candidates who have announced their intentions to run for president. You hear her comments and watch Sean’s entire interview with Palin by clicking here.
Ghouse And Gold Square Off
Sean was joined by writer and speaker Mike Ghouse to discuss the comments made by Obama about Israel. Obama told our closest ally, Israel, that they have to give up and go back to their 1967 borders - essentially forcing them to negotiate with a terrorist organization that wants their destruction. Ghouse explained to Sean that he believes this terrorist threat is going to change and become friends and cooperate with Israel. "What if you're wrong?" Sean asked Ghouse directly. "If you're wrong, Israel is destroyed." Ghouse was adamant that he was right. "I am not wrong. I have not been wrong on many issues. Dore Gold, an Israeli statesman who has served in various diplomatic positions under several Israeli governments, called in as well and debated with Ghouse.
