    I don't think they can. I don't think that Obama has any ideas on how to deal with it diplomatically, he's just following Bush. And Bush (being Bush) is not coming up with very good strategies in the first place. There's always the option of going to war but look how that turned out in Iraq. They need to come up with an effective diplomatic solution and I don't think the Obama administration can do it.

    Why should we handle the situation? Seems to me that we have a few problems here at home. We are not responsible for every fools actions in this world.

    Obama may negotiate with the one who will be the Antichrist to bring peace to Israel, but it will be short lived. Then all nations will be against Israel for 3-1/2 years and, well, you know what happens next.

    I'll wait to see, his policies as president could differ from what he has pledged to do, what position he has taken, and the positions and past actions of his chosen cabinet.

    Most likely though, the answer is no:

    Before the interests of the US, the world, the desire of the American people, or any sense of justice, fairness, and decency.

    No one can. The only people with thge power to stop the Bloodshed is Hamas and they, for a variety of reasons, mostly having to do with power, aren't interested.
