You laid it our very well. I would add though, that the Obama Adminsitration is falling in the trap of anti-Israel propaganda. First Arabs and Muslims are furious over something to vent out their frustrations artificially. That something, conveniently, is and has been for the last 61 years, Israel. So the delusion is that this psychological obsession with Israel, will be solved by imposing "peace" when there is nor unity neither ardent desire among Palestinians for true statehood, governance, responsability and accountability, except in small pockets. When Hitler spoke about "the Jewish problem" it wasn't a Jewish problem; it was his problem. When people speak about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as the epicenter of all problems, they apply the same logic.
