One of the reasons the so called peace process has come to a halt is US outrageous bias in favor of Israel. The Obama administration need to change its approach and stop tip toeing around Israel and prove to the Palestinians and the Arabs that it is an honest broker committed to an even handed approach. The problem with previous US administrations has always been their concern about reelection and appeasing the pro Israel lobby in the US. Such approach has played a key role in alienating the Arabs and the Muslims and is the main reason why anti US sentiment is sky high. The early promise which Obama brought with him when he was elected had soon been squandered when he backtracked on his early commitment to pressuring Israel to comply with previous agreements and end its occupation. So any change in US policy must be a good thing to the cause of peace in the Middle East.
