The campaign aginst Obama is spitefull and populist. He advocates a sane policy Israel can only benefit from. Marin Indyk quite correctly said that if israel would be a superpower, it would not need the US. But israel is a tiny state that cannot survive without support. israel is suffering from a too large appetite for land. And Obama is going to Israel on a diet. Quite rightly so. And necessary because democratic states will not tolerate another 43 years of occupation. Israel needs protection from itself. And hopefully Obama will deliver that.
