Open Forum: Obama fawns over Israel
Brainerd MN 506 James St. / PO Box 974 56401

For a two-party negotiation to succeed, the two sides need to be approximately equal. When one side is dominant, as Israel is over Palestine, you get dictation, not negotiation.

That is why Obama’s absurd comment at the U.N., “Ultimately, it is the Israelis and Palestinians, not us, who must reach agreement on the issues that divide them,” was met with stony silence by the delegates.

Support for Palestinian statehood by the leaders of countries such as France and Brazil received standing ovations.

Meanwhile, the world watches as a helpless American president fawns over the small country that holds his election mortgage. I can’t believe that this president is the man I voted for.
