It's only an issue if the western press says it is

Reader comment on item: Obama to Palestinians: Accept the Jewish State

Sadly, whatever the western press picks and chooses to further their ideologically driven 'news' is what the general public knows (those who care to). Apparently they did not share Dr Pipes' view that Obama's statement had any significance. The few arab press that picked it up are not enough to make a difference.

Since in this new political world, appearances are everything and facts are easily manipulated, it will likely not have any momentous results. Again, Obama in his quest to woo the arabs seems always to manage to irk them instead. I wonder when/if he will ever take note and change his tactics of appeasement.
