A couple notes on Barack Obama and "Middle East Peace"....

"... The Islamic world isn’t going to suddenly, or even eventually start liking the USA even if the Zionist supporters of the "Religious Right" and the AIPAC supporting Neocons stop trying to influence US policy, or the Israelis stop fighting back.

For one thing, Muslims consider ALL of Israel to be “occupied territory”, not just Gaza and the West Bank. And Barack Obama isn't going to talk anyone into changing that fact.

Secondly, Muslims do not get along with their neighbors anywhere in the world -- not Jews, not Christians, Hindus, or even other Muslims. For centuries, despotic Muslim leaders have used hatred of The Other to keep their people oppressed and divert them from revolt. This is not going to change peacefully...."
