Obama and Israel

-Aaron Klein argues that Robert Malley, a principal Obama foreign policy adviser, “penned a well-circulated New York Review of Books piece largely blaming Israel for the collapse of the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations at Camp David in 2000,â€? giving a version sharply at odds with President Bill Clinton, then-Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and primary U.S. envoy to the Middle East Dennis Ross. (WorldNetDaily)

-But Martin Peretz says that Obama can indeed be trusted on the subject of Israel, and that while Malley “has written several deceitful articles in the New York Review of Books� and �is anti-Israel,� that “Malley is not and has never been Middle East adviser to Barack Obama.� (The Jerusalem Post)

Obama says “The Palestinians have a legitimate concern that a state have a contiguous coherent mass that would allow the state to function effectively.” A land corridor between Gaza and the West Bank would effectively cut Israel in half. (Israel Insider)
