Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
Obama may be eager to mediate between Israel and the terrorists, but Israel first needs someone to mediate its talks with Obama. With the majority of Israelis believing Obama to be biased against Israel, and with the Obama administration prejudicing the outcome of negotiations before they’ve even taken place, any summit or peace conference would be nothing more than a kangaroo court lacking the support of the Israeli people.
It may indeed be time for the U.S. and Israel to reevaluate their alliance and decide what they want and need from each other. If the only use America has for Israel is as a tool for winning Muslim favor by extracting from it territorial concessions for terrorists – as the Obama Administration seems bent on doing – then maybe it’s time for both nations to move on.
