Are we living on the same planet? You refer to countering extremism when Israel's degrading, thumb-in-the-eye policies toward Arabs (and the USA and its President) is, itself, provocative of even moderates. You have an extreme right-wing group of anti-social, ignorant belligerents for a government, and you say that the onus is on Obama. Get serious, accept the realities of Israel's behavior and its consequences. If you don't think that more regional unity against Iran would result from a more constructive attitude by the Israeli people, you are wrong. Making people angry is apparently a national specialty in Israel. Take a good look at it.
