Obama and Israel

From the Algemeiner, some news that shouldn't surprise us one bit: "With its eyes on the potential launch of an Israeli-Palestinian peace initiative after next month’s presidential election, the Obama administration is 'manufacturing a crisis' over settlement construction, to exert diplomatic pressure on the Jewish state, The Weekly Standard reported on Sunday, citing sources in Congress and the American Jewish community...One congressional source told The Weekly Standard that the administration had been “waiting for an opening” to hit hard against Israel, and an official with an American-Jewish organization was quoted as saying the administration 'wants to be able to say the Israelis forced them to act.'"
