Barack Obama, the US president, is getting ready to host Israeli and Palestinian leaders for a meeting he hopes might get peace talks started again.

But Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has made his position clear in the past few hours, saying he will defend settlement expansion, which is the big sticking point.

Al Jazeera English's Clayton Swisher has been out on the streets of Jerusalem to find out what Israelis think about Obama and his plans.

A recent poll made by the Jarusalem Post has found that just 4% think that President Obama is pro-Israeli. These people interviewed on the street sound just as scarily disinformed as the tebaggers, in fact that 1st guy is even scarier than anything I've seen so far.

Note to mods, I thought it would be ok to post this here as it's related President Obama's policies in Israeli/Palestinian affairs.
