As an ardent supporter of Israel, and a father whose son will soon be with the Israeli army, show me where Pres Obama has ever said he would impose a settlement. He has said on tv that only the parties involved can accept or reject any suggested peace plans, and that none could be imposed.If I am wrong, please cite evidence.

Please, fred. Obama bows to Arab royalty and snubs Netanyahu. You choose to pick through details and ignore the overall picture. You can't only not see the forest for the trees, you can't see the trees for the leaves.

On my blog, every time I post something supporting Isreal I get at least one anti-Semitic comments. Considering my blog gets less than one comment a day, this is significant. The comment is almsot always from someone who has never commented otherwise.

The stage is being set. God bless and protect your son.

....there's VAST difference between what Obama SAYS and what he DOES.

This is a statement of no substance--of course no one can force Israel or the PLO to agree to a plan (well, in theory, the U.S. or Israel could evict the entire Palestinian population from the West Bank and Gaza by force, but that would require a major war and won't happen). Doesn't mean Obama can't put a lot of pressure on one side or the other, and so far all of his pressure has been on Israel.

You are right: and it is called regime change, something we seem to relish...
thanks for wishing my son well. I am not overly happy about his move, but then I joined the Am army two weeks after high school and my oldest son joined the marines a few weeks after college. Given the economy here, and his not wanting grad school or the corporate world, this may prove a decent way to look about, figure things out. At 22, he is not about to listen to his parents, and so we tell him to think carefully about what he wants to do and then, when he decides, we will support his choice.

Oh, and some of the women Israeli soldiers are hot. 8)

this is how Syria has unsettled the balence in the Middle East and enabled Hezbollah to strike Israel

I had heard about the missles. Now if our current president will just put some pressure on them instead of easing sanctions as he has been doing we can get somewhere.

fred, there is a conservative within you. He peeks out on occasion. Your posts from that place are thoughtful, engaging, and very different from the times you get stuck on the progressive bandwagon.

God speed on your journey.
