    He needs the Jewish vote to hold New York, New Jersey, Ohio and Florida. He just lost a special congressional election in New York because Jewish support is slipping. For those who feel US power is slipping, think again. NATO just overthrew Khaddafi. Turkish hubris (naval takeover in the Eastern Med) is opposed by Cyprus. The Arabs refuse to support Palestine financially. Next year, Israel will start exporting natural gas. Palestine will have pissed off Obama by sticking a finger in his eye during an election season. Turkey will find itself cut off from new buys of US and European arms unless it backs off Neo-Ottomanism. Palestine will still have to negotiate with Israel which will still exist. Assad will be fighting a full fledged civil war on Turkey's doorstep. History will continue with ups and downs for all concerned. China will vote for Palestine but make economic deals with Israel (may be it's biggest customer for natural gas). Any attempt to apply sanctions or isolate Israel will be vetoed by the US (it's an election year). Historians will look back and say September 2011 wasn't a watershed.
