Carlo has it all backwards. The Israeli people should FIRST reach out to Obama and change their arrogant attitudes, THEN maybe America can give insurance for its survival, NOT the other way around. You see, the General has spoken; Israel is a danger to the US. As far as a stable "democracy," I fail to see why Israel should be called a democracy, when at its core it is a theocracy. Finally, Israeli may give poll answers that favor a two state solution, yet they do nothing to indicate that they are working towards it. All that the world sees is continued settlements and occupation. Green Line, period.
