Obama has provided Israel with more military aide and has continued US diplomatic cover, but Obama also changed American policy on UN resolution 242 "withdrawal from territories" to defensible clear and recognized boundaries to the 1967 lines. This was understood by the Americans in 1967 to mean at a minimum that Israel would keep some areas like the Western Wall without swapping any land in return. This change has encouraged Abbas to take a hard line on territorial compromise, and has weakened Israel's negotiating position. Obama has also torn up the letter of understanding from Bush that America expects Israel to keep the large settlement blocs. Do you believe he would stop Iran getting a nuclear bomb?
