I hope you are right. I think Obama was warning Israelis about the limitation of power; even the power of an American President. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Yes, it was all over the top Zionism and no recognition of non-Jews having any connection to the land - the rights of non-Jews to live with some semblence of human rights dependent on an appeal to the better nature of the young Jewish audience. But if they chose not to extend justice to Palestinians, then no matter, the good ole USA will be there to cover and protect. Except for Obama's warning re the reality of politicians not taking risks; he specifically included himself in this and hopefully was referring to the constraints imposed upon American administrations by AIPAC and a bribable Congress etc. And, then the second warning; that separation walls and iron domes will not provide security and that the influence of the USA cannot stem the tide of international isolation facing Israel. Clearly many young Israelis are quite comfortable with the status quo, (so long as American Presidents smooch up to them) - I wonder if many heard these warnings?
