The U.S. has been protecting Israel from condemnation for years, even when that condemnation is deserved. If anyone expected "change" from Obama, they will be in for a major letdown. This president, as those before him, know that to challenge Israel is politically difficult given the overwhelming strength of the Israeli lobby in the U.S. One day a president will really exert some courage and the world will be better off for it. But Obama will not be that president and the world is worse off for it.
