Obama said What!??!
In the two weeks leading up to President Obama's visit to Israel and Ramallah ("City of Allah"), there were numerous rock-throwing attacks on Israelis as well as violent protests within the Palestinian Authority that their forces had to quell. I do not have a full list of attacks on Israelis, but here are three as examples.
As of March 13, 2013, reports that B'tselem protested the detention of 27 Palestinian "children" for throwing rocks at Israelis and IDF soldiers in Hebron. The Tel Aviv court has ruled that rock throwing is a hate crime for rocks kill. Well, that's elucidating the obvious.
Ten Palestinian "children" were arrested for throwing rocks in Samaria that broke the windshield of the car driven by a mother and her three daughters under the age of 8. All are in serious condition in the hospital with little Adele (three years old) critically injured.
Rocks were thrown at a public bus in east Jerusalem. No arrests.
He described recent protests that have erupted in the West Bank in anticipation of his visit as an "understanding of the moral force of non-violence."
Obama said these words to Abbas in Ramallah. It is unclear whether he spoke them from beneath the enormous backrop banner of Arafat in his trademark black and white keffiya that he wore shaped like a map of Israel or not.
Whether or not these words were delivered from underneath the master terrorist and cofounder with PA President Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah, this presidentially evaluated "moral force of non-violence" left injured Israelis, including a three-year-old baby in danger of losing her life, her mother and two sisters in the hospital with serious injuries, and thousands of dollars of property damaged in Hebron and Samaria.
If President Barack Hussein Obama considers rock-throwing an "understanding of the moral force of non-violence," well, Netanyahu and Yaalon, your next steps are clear.
