    ...idea, solution, wistful hope--whatever--for President Obama to present his case directly to the Israeli public as highly problematic--with the caveat that I don't know what (if anything) you have in mind beyond what I see as "the grand gesture." Some of my concerns are: (1) Is President Obama supposed to be going "over the head" of Israel's duly elected government? (2) Are you asking President Obama to, in effect, do the "left's" heavy lifting for them? (3) Are high profile MKs and Ministers going to be simultaneously standing in front of the media denouncing the President of my country as a "muslim n***er?" And one last question, sir, when (I believe) this American administration is sincerely attempting to solve a very complex problem in an adult fashion, do you actually expect my President to go to your country and--for all practical purposes-- get down on his knees and beg?
