    Whats the political price Obama is going to demand from Israel in exchange for this handout? Already Bibi has stopped any major building projects in Jerusalem or pulling down houses built without permits. Its probably also about stopping Israel carrying out military operations to stop rocket attacks ... the palestinians can fire rockets but hey if the US has given Israel some money to build something to shoot down these rockets he can say there is no justification for trying to stop this at source. As Iron Dome is purely defensive and cannot be used as a weapon then its hard for the palestinians to object and of course lets not forget those midterms approaching and the Democrats are expected to lose alot of seats and there are alot of jewish voters that have the voting power to make the difference in some states between Republican or Democrat and Obama has a very anti Israel reputation so he needs to soften that up as the elections get closer if he wants damage limitations for Democrats.
