despite having an environmental catastrophe on his hands, obama took some time today to make sure that he isn't on the wrong side of another catastrophe: israel and palestine.
obama met with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu today for a photo op to dispel concerns that the united states and israel are on a break.
just like a marriage, allied nations have to work hard to make sure that their relationship doesn't crumble. so obama and netanyahu scheduled some 'them' time today.
in fact, obama said "“The bond between the United States and Israel is unbreakable" and went on to warn the palestinians against inciting the israelis.
last straw for this one on obama. after the flotilla atrocity to get together with netanyahu to prove to the world that the united states isn't mad at israel? childish.
committed to peace, obama? well then maybe you should take the peace option on this one and NOT back israel.
