    Obama (USA) should not be even-handed! What a ridiculous claim form AIPAC. 1948 Jews were allowed to establish a nation. Unfortunately international community was not able to draw fair borders a year before that, and Brits left before the case was solved. But already then was seen that Palestinians, the people living on the area, deserve their own country. And why shouldn't it be like that? Israelis (jews) does not have any priviledge to the area. Claims that 1967 borders are indefensible, or that too many Israelis are living behind that border, are not good excuses. The latter one is mostly a self-created problem, and I don't think that even Netanyahu could believe that international community would allow a situation in which Israel's right to exist is questioned/hurt. But when state of Palestine is established, Netanyahu won't have many friends. So better to moan now - although it won't change anything.
