Hamas may have told Israel it isn’t looking for another war in Gaza, but it’s clearly desperate to advance its attack tunnels. It’s also delighted to be sowing seeds of discontent and concern among the Israeli public.04:19 13.02.16 | 0 comments
Your problem is more serious than Obama. Political winds are changing in the US: note recent testimony of Gen David Petraeous Commander of CENTCOM before congress. Petraeous said, "...regarding the Palestinians, U.S. and Israeli interests diverge sharply and perhaps irreconcilably," ... ?root causes of instability are insufficient progress toward a comprehensive Middle East peace.? "...the enduring, hostilities between Israel and its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests. Israeli Palestinian tensions often flare into violence that foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel. Arab anger over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S. partnerships with governments and peoples and weakens the legitimacy of moderate Arab regimes. Al Qaeda and other militant groups exploit that anger to mobilize support. He questions whether the US should view Israel as a strategic asset.
