“Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people,” Obama said… Up-close Obama urges compassion in Mideast

And Obama’s dad is African…? What a brother mulatto does to a brother.

Wow... I thought it was political suicide in the US to show any bit of compassion towards those non-israeli infidels.

We might actually (a .05% chance instead of .0000001%) make some progess in the middle east if Obama gets elected...

Yeah, I don’t understand the Israel thing at all. They have very little in common with the US but we’ve tied many of our national policies to them.

I like some things about Obama, especially in comparison to the others in the Dem field, but there is nothing that can fix the Palestine/Israel problem (except genocide and that’s not the kind of solution I truck with). Everyone there sees it as their land and everyone is right. They were the same people a couple thousand years ago and even after they split they have traded the land back and forth several times. There is no settlement Israel could make that would make Palestine happy short of reversing positions and that wouldn’t work for Israel, obviously. Any countries based on religion will never have peace. It’s never happened in the past, it will never happen in the future.

Palestine does indeed have it bad but there are probably 20 countries in line, at least a few in Africa, ahead of them for the “who is suffering the most” competition.
