Dennis Ross, Israel’s Lonely Friend in the White House

Just wanted to make sure you saw this story by Helene Cooper of the New York Times today, a great piece of reporting that shows essentially one man in the White House standing with Israel. Helene is not shy about pointing out Obama’s tilt toward the Palestinians, unusual in the mainstream media.

One hopeful sign is that George Mitchell is described here as in the Palestinian camp, and of course he felt he had to resign.

But just imagine the pressure that will be put on Israel if Obama wins reelection and no longer has to worry about Jewish votes or Jewish money.
