If Obama thinks there will be a viable, independent, and sovereign Palestinian State, he is sadly mistaken. A Palestinian state would soon be ruled by Iran and Syria, just as Gaza is now ruled by Hamas leaders in Syria and just as Iraq will be ruled by Iran when our troops leave and the Taliban will take over Afghanistan. This decision to go to indirect talks is a major step backwards. We are no longer using the "road map" but have taken a detour in the wrong direction. For more than a year, Abbas has refused direct talks. His childishness has paid off. Almost every domestic and foreign policy decision Obama has made so far has failed. Pushing a health plan that Americans don't want while unemployment soars has damaged our economy. Taking a weak stance in foreign policy decisions has brought us contempt from our adversaries. North Korea, Iran, and Syria laugh at us. Now that Obama is destroying the U.S. as a world leader, will he attempt to destroy Israel as well?
