"And those who know Obama personally have testified that his heart is in the Palestinian problem."
In fact, he doesn't give a damn and never did. He spurns equity, justice, and popular needs at home and abroad. He supports plutocratic governance and imperial wars for global dominance. He's waging war on Islam. He exceeded Bush's ruthlessness.
Levy thinks Obama first concentrated on political survival. Lame duck status frees him to do things he didn't try in term one. He's misguided saying:
"".Obama (now) is expected to have greater self-confidence and be less concerned with considerations of survival. This is where the great opportunity lies."- Advertisement -
"It is difficult to believe that Obama will capitulate in his second term as well. It is difficult to believe he will forgive the behavior of an Israel that talks about two states for two peoples but refuses even to freeze construction in the settlements."
"This mask must be pulled from Israel's face, and no one can do it better than a furious and moral president in his second term of office."
Obama is both con man and moral coward. He'll do nothing more for Palestinians now than earlier. He'll ignore Israel's worst crimes of war and against humanity.
He won't demand occupation harshness end. He'll let settlement expansions steal all valued Judea and Summaria areas. He'll continue providing billions of dollars annually in military aid.
It helps Israel maintain control Palestine, keep Gaza besieged, bomb, shell, or invade with impunity, imprison resisters in gulag hell, and attack neighbors like Lebanon.
