Obama on Israel

It’s the same old same old. Lefti on the News has direct quotes from Obama interspersed with humorous, biting commentary.

“There are those who would lay all of the problems of the Middle East at the doorstep of Israel and its supporters, as if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the root of all trouble in the region.”

Yeah, what a wacky idea.

There can not be peace in the Middle East until Palestinians have a place to call home. Seems simple enough to me. Until then they will be used as pawns by multiple governments (including Arab) for multiple ends and fanatics on all sides will continue to slaughter each other. Really, folks, what’s going on there now clearly isn’t working. If you want peace, all the players have to be at the table. Period.
