I call upon Pres. Barack Obama, Sec. Hillary Clinton, and UN Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, don't be on the wrong side of history and what is right and just. Support the request of the Palestinians for Palestine to become a member of the United Nations.

What I wish for during President Barack Obama's second term:
1. a push to make a pathway to citizenship for all the undocumented immigrants in the United States.
2. an end to extra-judicial killings via American drones.
3. support for the Palestinians effort to obtain statehood and membership in the United Nations.
4. an expansion of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to include a "single payor" system, where the government offers health insurance to all in return for paying income taxes.
5. an end to animosity to Iran. The United States should not have any "enemies." This includes Iran.

There are reports out of Israel that an Iranian ship is sailing to Gaza, laden with arms.
This seems a pretext for war monger Netanyahu and Lieberman to start a war with Iran by sinking one of their ships.
I call upon Pres. Barack Obama, do not let Israel attack Iran!

It was Pres. Barack Obama who was instrumental in bringing about a cease fire in Gaza. Obama worked closely with Egypt's president Morsi in arranging both sides to agree. He called Morsi six times on Monday and Tuesday this week.
Thanks go to Sec. Hillary Clinton, who went to Israel to tell Netanyahu in blunt terms that the United States wished him to agree, rather than continue Israel's immoral and illegal bombing of the Palestinian people.
See the key reporting in today's The New York Times by Peter Baker and David D. Kirkpatrick.

Compare Bashar al Assad's procedures with those of Bib Netanyahu. Both claim they are fighting armed terrorists. Both order their war planes to bomb homes of civilians, killing scores of men, women and children. Both engage in collective punishment against their political opponents.

Here's what I want Pres. Barach Obama to do during his new term. Support the Palestinians in their just desire to achieve informal membership at the United Nations.
Perhaps the latest flare-up of fighting is a result of Bib Netanyahu, Israel's prime minister, determined to stop the desire of the Palestinians to be recognized by the U.N. Perhaps he is afraid that the U.N. will then condemn Israel for its harsh and cruel treatment of Palestinians. Or for its use of collective punishment against civilians in Gaza for the acts of a few.

Israeli prime minister, Bibi Netanyahu, seems intent on starting another conflagration in the Middle East. He ordered a targeted assassination of Hamas leader, Ahmad Jabari, last night. Now he is calling up 30,000 Israeli reservists. Can anyone be in doubt that he intends that Israel invade Gaza?
I say, stop this foolishness! Nothing permanent as to peace can be attained through Israeli guns and bombs.

I hear reporters on NBC, CBS, BBC World News, Al Jazeera, and France 24 talk about the election as a virtual tie.
I disagree. President Barach Obama is going to win almost every state. Mitt Romney is going down to defeat.
American presidential elections are decided on the number of electoral votes, with 270 needed to win. Each state is assigned so many electoral votes, based on population. Illinois, for example, has 20 electoral votes. If Obama wins in Illinois, he garners all of the state's 20 electoral votes.
From what I see in state-by-state polls, I predict Pres. Barach Obama will win with 320 electoral votes.
