    It blows my mind that people think Obama is out to destroy Israel. All he did was parrot a position on the 2 state solution that goes back to Nixon, and that US Presidents have officially held for almost 50 years -- since 1967, really (I’m old enough to remember…). We all know that if Israel starts a war with Iran, Obama will have no choice but to join the mess -- hooray, more war! (thanks guys, it's not like we'd rather spend our money on something else, you know... something beneficial.) The right-wing in Israel are a warmongering and paranoid bunch, and I hope we don't spend a dollar containing a war you provoked. Oh how ecstatic I would be if our President were tougher on the nutcases currently running Israel. As for my compatriots like JMM: I urge you to spend some time learning about the conflict -- you cannot know where Obama stands vis-à-vis Israel if you have no historical background whatsoever. As it is right now, you folks are far too susceptible to Republican-talking-points-on-Israel propaganda.
