Just as Obama appeased Wall St at the expense of the every day people, it appears he is appeasing Israel at the expense of peace in the Middle East. While the White House once spoke of 'settlement freezes', it is now content to plea for 'restraint'. Not exactly change we can believe in.
Obama does deserve time to get negotiations back on track, but constantly bowing to the hard Right government in Israel is no way to begin them.
