This time, I disagree w/ Burston. Why such vituperation against Siegman? Obama aligns w/ the Israeli Left because the Right is a hopeless case. Obama should give a televised speech to the Israeli public but one crucial point is that Israel is indeed spoiled and that the U.S., to be most effective, needs truly to be an honest broker, not Israel's 110% ally. If you want a 2-state solution then stop settlement bulding and ensure space for the new state. If you want a 1-state solution, tell us what Israel will do when Palestinians outnumber Jews in such a state!
