We should thank Obama for trying to rescue Israel from the fanatic religious-nationalists and their collared and leashed politicians, like Netanyahu, who are waiting for scraps to fall off the table and into their pockets. The Israeli "silent majority" and their Jewish counterparts around the world want this conflict brought to at least a simmer from the mess it's in right now. As a Zionist, and a one time Oleh, the recent rhetoric out of Jerusalem is, frankly, embarrassing. I have no illusions about the Israelis and Palestinians holding hands and skipping through the flowers as buddies. But to save Israel from it's further moral decay due to the infection of lawlessness in the territories that has spilled into the Green line, just get out. Who cares if the Palestinians want to fight among themselves. Let the Arab countries and the rest of the world worry about that.
