Too bad the letter writer also did not ask Obama to grab the stupid Palestinian leadership by the throat and ask them to recognize Israel's right to exist, to stop shelling Israel from the Gaza Strip (which Israel pulled out of more than a year ago) and to realize that trying to destroy Israel is not a viable strategy.
Too bad this letter is another example of the one-sided "israel is to blame for everything/The Palestinians are innocent martyrs" approach to the issues in the middle east.
Clearly as long as the Palestinians and their misguided supporters in Israel and the rest of the world refuse to place any responsibility for the current situation on the the shoulders of the Hamas/Fatah leadership, then we will continue to spin our wheels in the mud.
