The fact of the matter is that Israeli hardliners have a solid majority of the american people behind them, whether Obama likes it or not. Why is this so??? As a non-hypenated American (not jewish, not arab, not black, not hispanic, not moslem, not even much of a christian), the israeli right has my backing, not because I particularly like israelis or jews, but simply because I don't like the enemies of Israel. Like many americans, I still have a screen saver on my computer showing palestinian mobs celebrating the 9/11 attacks. I will never forget the mobs of iranians yelling "death to America, death to Israel" outside the destroyed american embassy. I could go on for many paragraphs, but the conclusion is obvious. Israel is very fortunate in having such repugnant enemies.
