    Considering the amount of U.S aid Israel receives (around $3 billion annually), I would say Obama has every right to put pressure on Netanyahu and his hardline expansionist government.

    From your link:

    "In his remarks at the fundraiser on Monday morning, Romney outraged Palestinians by suggesting that the inherent culture of Israelis was the reason their economy was more developed than the Palestinian one, a notion that discounts years of economic blockade and occupation in the West Bank and Gaza."

    Mitt's mute on Geneva Convention prohibitions on transferring Israeli civilians into the Occupied Territories:

    "Section III. Occupied territories
    Articles 47-78 impose substantial obligations on occupying powers. As well as numerous provisions for the general welfare of the inhabitants of an occupied territory, an occupier may not forcibly deport protected persons, or deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into occupied territory (Art.49)."

    I could easily say the exact same thing about you wingnuts and your anti-Obama posts. Are you racist?

    "Under international law, Israel’s rule in the West Bank and Gaza is considered 'belligerent occupation' and, therefore, its actions must be justified by military necessity only. If there is no occupation, Israel has no military grounds to hold on to the territories.

    "In that case, it must either return the land to the Palestinians, and move out the settlers, or defy international law by annexing the territories, as it did earlier with East Jerusalem, and establish a state of Greater Israel.

    "Annexation, however, poses its own dangers. Israel must either offer the Palestinians citizenship and wait for a non-Jewish majority to emerge in Greater Israel; or deny them citizenship and face pariah status as an apartheid state."

    What's a good Zionist to do?
    Integrate or vanish from the page of time?

    The dictionary defines the word, but most racists are too cowardly to admit they are one.
