    Obama can pick Rabin's Jahrzeit to give one of his lofty speeches about peace. But that will not change his abysmal standing among Israelis. What could help, if Obama is really interested in it, is he climbs down from his naiveté and understands the following: Just as Hitler's "Jewish problem" wasn't a problem of the Jews, but Hitler's, Muslims' "Israeli problem" is not Israel's, but the Muslims'. To try to solve the Muslims' problems by imposing a peace when much of the Muslim world is burning in crisis and jihad, backwardness and hatred of Jews, is misguided. Globalized anti-Semitism directed at delegitimizing Israel is the problem. Iran is the problem. Syria is the problem. Thus Lebanon is the problem. And yes, certainly there is a real problem between Israelis and Arabs. Solve the aforementioned ones really, truly, and you will have massive support among Israelis for a peace deal with a responsible, accountable and honest Palestinian counterpart.

Why U.K's Labour Party won't confront Muslim anti-Semitism

Too many Labour politicians cravenly adopted the anti-Semitic tropes and anti-Israel demonization they think will get them British Muslim votes, rather than standing up to the prejudice that exists in the community.
