    Moshe Arens does not seem to understand that Obama applies a completely amoral functional approach to Isreal and the Jewish people. According to him, history and current affairs are one continuum of relative "usefulness" in his foreign policy application. Thus he can group the murderous Hamas organization with the right wing Likud members who do not agree with him, as he did last week. The US has never had such an "immoral" president. Given the past traditional committment to liberty and human rights that has been a cornerstone in US foreign policy, it is shameful and a disgrace to see this development. The last leader of a major western democracy to adopt this approach was Neville Chamberlain in the late 1930's.
