    Between them, Israel and the Palestiinians will never make peace. To make matters worse, Israel is not even motivated to make peace. As long as Israel avoids peace, they can pursue expansion outside Israels borders. They can play the peace game forever and never allow it to get close. America has played the fool for Israel, appearing weak and impotent on the world stage. America needs to take some action to demonstrate that they have finally gotten serious about peace. The first action should be the suspension of all aid to Israel. At that point, Israel will have to make a choice between American support or settlement expansion. This would be win/win for Obama and America. This wouldn't make peace in itself. It would only be the first step in a long process. That first step has never been taken before except as a part of peace fakery. What would happen if an American president ever got that tough with Israel? Nobody knows since it has never happened before. AIPAC is there to prevent just such a thing. We need to find out who is really running Washington. If the Israel lobby has more power than the American government, so be it, but it is something that we need to know.
