    Hillary is a Dove compared to Obama on Israel.

    Obama has made his pro-Israeli position very clear throughout the campaign. HOWEVER, peace is NOT achievable unless Israel TRUSTS those in America that are going to guarantee the deal.

    Unfortunately, there is ZERO chance of peace there now. The Palestinian side is not even close to having anyone that can speak for them or deal for them.

    The US is going to make friendly with Iran before the Israeli situation will even be worked on. Interestingly, I'm very confident that Iran and US will work out a deal. It's clearly in both sides interests.

    Hillary is a very clever lady. She'll be more than fine.

      Can you provide some examples of Obama's relative hawkishness on the Palestine-Israel conflict opposed to Clinton?  The Mid East generally?

      peace is NOT achievable unless Israel TRUSTS those in America that are going to guarantee the deal.

      I know that previous to the election, most Israelis prefered McCain for reasons that are unclear to me over our new POTUS, but I'm a little surprised to hear that Obama isn't trusted.  Am I misreading this sentence?
