Regardless how much kowtowing Obama does to Zionist voters, he will be seen as "damaged goods." That is, his failure to show leadership has not only allowed Netanyahu to walk all over him, but more importantly, it has alienated and in fact embittered the Arabs. American Jews voted for the black man with the Muslim name because it was hoped that Obama would be able to bridge the gap between Israel and the Arabs precisely because of his unique public narrative. But his moral cowardice in not standing up to the settler movement, Netanyahu or Lieberman will ironically cost him Jewish votes in the next presidential election because he is no longer valued in the Middle East as a mediator and honest broker.
