Obama’s Pressure on Israel

It seems that Obama is taking a less-than-neutral stance on Israeli settlements. This is refreshing. He’s actually putting pressure on Netanyahu to stop them. Christian Bose of Foreign Policy claims that Obama is treating Israel like Bush treated Hamas. This may be a slight exaggeration. However, if this pressure will help move Israel closer to peace with the Palestinians, then I’m glad that Obama has the guts to make this move.
