Pete Wehner doesn't like this piece, about America's role in Middle East peacemaking, by Will Marshall and Jim Arkedis of the Progressive Policy Institute, but it doesn't bother me much: I think, as Obama has said, that an American president should help Israel make the hard decisions it needs to make in order to stay a Jewish democracy. One way of doing this is not putting up with illegal settlement activity anymore.
