Todays news conference by Gov. Perry on the UN -Palestinian crisis is right on target.Similarly the attack by Gov. Romney and the letter by 14 US Senators to the President all cover the same issues.Perry and Romney of cours are looking to the Florida primary and susequent election.
The bottom line is that Obama does not have in his gut a feeling for the Jewish people and their history with the land of Israel.His frame of reference is the post-Holocaust era,and thus 2 people with competing claims.
