If its embassy relies on UNRWA for info on Gaza, its no wonder it is clueless. Thus, it is no wonder too, that Israelis are suspicious about Obama's policies. The US embassy in Tel Aviv blames a dismal PR. Here's a suggestion: Why hasn't Obama visited Israel yet? He has visited many countries, from Egypt to Slovenia to Chile, not Israel. He is among the few US presidents who haven't visited Israel, or perhaps, the only one. Why not to start by the obvious if the USA wants to explain its policies to the Israeli people?
