Obama and Israel's self-victimization extravaganza
When President Barack Obama visits Israel later this month he will be treated to Jerusalem's full-dress victim show, a modern Via Dolorosa. Can't we offer our closest ally more than war memorials, nuclear nightmares and the Holocaust?
Seven years ago an obscure young United States senator visited the Holy Land. Over the course of five intensive days he covered nearly every inch of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. He took tours, heard explanations, held meetings and asked questions. He always carried a pen and a large notebook. His hosts were impressed by his energy, his likability and his insistence on arriving at his own conclusions.
