"This is the president who has been appeasing Israel for the last 7 years." No. This is the president who went to war in Iraq over the objections of then PM Sharon and the Israeli government. This is the president that forced Israel not to object to Hamas' participation in Palestinian elections. This is the president who now wants to sell high tech military equipment to Saudi Arabia, although there is a risk such equipment could fall into the hands of extremists.
