7. I will actually go and vote if he says something about the treatment of the Palestinans.
Damn, that would really be something.

12. Lets ignore hes the only presidential candidate that I can remember
Who actually met with Palestinian leadership when he was in the area. Not to mention he actually talked about including the palestinian people in the peace process...while he was in Israel. Most politicians don't touch that until they are back in the states

13. wow he talked about including Palestinians in the peace process?
Thats just huge! :sarcasm:

Obama's policy in regards to Israel and Palestine is the same as GWB. No change there.

14. Boring
You can nitpick all the little things you don't like about the man as far as I'm concerned. I know he will be better for Israel/Palestinian relations that Bush is/was, so you can choose to ignore that at your own discretion.

My question is, in your infinite wisdom, what position would you have him adopt?
