    The reason it's there, and that it stands out enough for Burston to mention it, is because it IS the ONLY difference between Obama and any other president. His policy regarding Israel is NO different than previous presidents, and as a matter of fact, all he's doing is following THE official, and longstanding, American policy regarding Israel's occupation of territories designated as "Palestinian". What makes him stand out from previous presidents involved in brokering a peace agreement, is that he's not as prone to being weaseled into quietly acquiescing to Israel's blatant disregard for that policy - at the expense of an equitable peace settlement. It has nothing to do with anti-Semitism, or anti-Israel, or anti-anything; it has EVERYTHING to do with the integrity of American foreign policy - which previous administrations sacrificed to political expediency under pressure from AIPAC and its congressional drones.
