A small opening

Barack Obama, Cleveland, February:

I think there is a strain within the pro-Israel community that says unless you adopt a unwavering pro-Likud approach to Israel that you’re anti-Israel and that can’t be the measure of our friendship with Israel.

Nobody should be under any illusion about Obama’s ability or interest to seriously shift America’s role towards Israel – though Hillary Clinton’s supporters are certainly keen to try – but his position above is an encouraging sign of dissent. The Likudnik position has only caused chaos and will lead to the end of the Jewish state.
