    Living in Israel and watching my country continuing the insanely destructive occupation over the past few decades, it is so great to see the shift in the world's public opinion towards a balanced approach to Israel. The American Jewery ignores Israeli reality of a traumatized society, seemingly healthy and vibrant on the outside, but hiding ugly scars underneath, left over from the state’s founding. One question, why not push Israel into vacating the settlements. The assumtion based on the Israeli psyche is if US pushes them too hard the country will dissolve into civil war. The old extortion game. Push too hard and Israel will commit suicide, invade Iran, go collectively insane, whatever. Well just the usual Israeli narrative. Once again, thank you Obama for pushing this forward. Another thing: there is plenty of support for Obama's policies in Israel.
