Reader comment on item: The Solace of Poor U.S.-Israel Relations

It is about time Israel gets off the USA band wagon....and stands tall irrespective of the outcome.

Obama's fairness and sense of evenhandedness reference the Israel/Palestinian question is laudable, because of this evenhandedness he should also work for the return of America to the Indians. The Falkland Island to Argentina, Gibraltar to Spain, New Zealand to the Maoris, though overburdened and stretched out in Afghanistan Iraq and Pakistan, in a war that cannot be won, he finds the time to focus on prohibiting the building of dwellings in Jerusalem, but then he upped the ante ,by saying " The chronic failure to settle the conflict was costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure"

Mr. Crowley is absolutely right, consequently I respectfully suggest, a Complete withdrawal of all troops from Afghanistan, Pakistan, because

Military action would not solve the Middle East conflict therefore Obama needs to engage in direct negotiations with Bin Ladi
