Get in or get out

On Gaza:

The aftershocks of Israel’s war against Hamas will be deep and lasting, Miller told me. “This confrontation will have an enormous impact. A whole new Palestinian narrative is being created – of sacrifice, of struggle, of resistance. You can’t kill 1,000 people and not have an enormous blowback.” Does this make even attempting to play a constructive role a hopeless endeavor? “The first thing Obama has to do is ask himself a question,” he said, “and if he doesn’t answer it correctly you might as well hang a ‘close-for-season’ sign on the door. The question is: do you, Mr. President, believe the Arab-Israeli conflict is a core national priority for your administration? Not an interest, not a serious issue, but a core national priority.”

If the answer is yes, Miller went on to say, a lot will have to change, starting with the pattern of the US pretending to be an “honest broker” while actually serving as “Israel’s lawyer.”
