    I think this is yet one more lucid, excellent article by Ari Shavit. The politically correct imposition at a wrong timing (Iran's rise) advices to work together to avoid the war many see or foresee. I don't think though that Obama will be blamed, or that any such tragic two scenarios pointed out will be rightly named after Obama. It will be blamed on Israel, whatever happens. Such is the dynamics of anti-Semitism directed against the Jewish state. Likewise, I don't think that changes are "forever" as the article suggests about the Arab world after a conflict that will be so bloody and terrible. I think that under the surface, the Arab world has a magma that is not only negativity and hatred towards Israel, but many other ingredients, that may precisely evolve towards the better, if USA and Israel work quietly to diffuse tensions now, and let peace have its own flow and logic, its own natural timing, with a ready Israeli government, and a ready Palestinian government. Neither is ready.
