"Obama must steel himself to prodding the Arab side" ... Seriously ? How is it possible for the US to support Israel anymore than it does ? And honestly, the ONLY reason why US politicians support Israel is because there are a bunch of religous lunatics here who believe that Israel has something to do with them going to heaven, and they vote. Truth is that most "practical" US politicians understand , but can't say it in public, that Israel is a strategic liability. Israel has very little strategic importance after the cold war and zero natural resources and the US now has plenty of client states in the region who do. The days of US subsidies are coming to a close. Israel will have to make peace, one way or another. Or be swallowed by the "womb of the Arab woman".
