Obama + Israel

Barry Rubin tells us what to expect when Obama visits Israel. And Jay Nordlinger writes, "This article says that President Obama has three goals for his upcoming trip to Israel. The first is to convince the Israelis that he is serious about Iran. The second is to get a better relationship with Prime Minister Netanyahu. Wonderful. And the third goal? 'Enticing Israel back to negotiations with the Palestinians.' Obama sees the Middle East conflict way one, I see it another. In my view, it is the Palestinians who need the enticing — and Obama seems pretty disinclined to do it."
