    It's sad, but Obama, whom I greatly admire, has not been able to cope with this Israeli government, this bunch of extremist right-wingers, who with their deeds put even the USA's Republicans to shame. Ironically, through Obama's long association with his Jewish head-of-staff (who happens to be left-leaning!), Obama has become super-sensitive to the Jewish nation's defence-needs. This obviously contributes to his hesitancy in dealing with us in the sure-handed definitive manner than we deserve, ultimately for our own good. Needless to say, Bibi et al, play this up to the maximum, even invoking the Holocaust whenever possible...
