    Just like ha'aretz, always looking to get the answers that match their political agenda. I'm an american and Israeli. And I don't like Obama because he continues to exert pressure on Israel while giving the Arab and Muslim nations and Mahmud Abbas a free pass. He sees that the Arabs aren't going to budge and figures he might as well exert pressure where it will work. Subsequently, he's contributing to a global environment hostile to Israel, and perpetuating myths in sympathy for the palestinians, while enabling them to sit on their hands and refuse to negotiate. And showing the Palestinians they don't need to negotiate. Its about time the word admit that the Arabs lost the war, and the Palestinians said no to partition, and they have to pay a price. Admit that Historic palestine was a geographical area with both Jews and Arabs inhabited, and that Palestine was never more than a geographic definition. The arabs need to own up to their mistakes, and the Jews shouldn't have to pay.

Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders is smart to keep his mouth shut about Israel

The U.S. presidential candidate has the Democratic progressive vote in his pocket and is wise not to reveal that, on the Middle East, he stands more to the right than his fans would like him to.
