Obama needs to put forth a clear plan for peace between us and our arab neighbors. Not a vague "road map" to nowhere, but a detailed plan. Otherwise, nothing will happen. Our leaders do not want peace. and the Palestinians are unable to bring themselves to make the necessary concessions they need to make. Only the Americans can exert the needed pressure. The Europeans and moderate Arab countries will join in under American leadership. And the argument that we will not yield to American pressure is nonsense. The Americans have all kinds of ways to exert pressure.
