Not only should President Obama advocate a don't call us, we'll call you policy but he should adapt a similar policy towards Israel that he has with Iran: We support the State of Israel, just not it's current governments policies. My attitude may be totally different were I still leaving there, but I doubt it. Now here's the heretic point: President Obama should seriously consider with withholding any part of the American Peoples largess from any activity which promotes Israelis entrenchment in the disputed territories. I would imagine that includes the cost policing and protecting all settlements in 'Judea & Sumaria'. They were once strangers in the land of Egypt and now they are strangers in what they perceive as their own land and I don't envy their lot. Prime Minister Netanyahu, who lost a brother in one of the most brazen and heroic rescue missions ever launched should take a lesson from his predecessor, Menahem Begin.
