So when Obama emphasises "his recognition of Israel's desire for peace" will he simply be doing the Jewish lobby' bidding or will he actually mean it! There can be no resolution until the person sitting in the White House is prepared to take an even-handed approach to the conflict. So far Obama has failed to do this - and now? Let us hope that he is prepared to break free from the shackles that Netanyahu and his American cronies will try and impose on him and instead - to quote his own words apparently - put greater focus on stressing that "it's more important what you do for peace".
