Obama on tour

The pros and cons of Obama visiting Iran are neatly set out in a supposed dialogue in Al Jazeera today.(24/7/2008). Quite where he stands at the end of the day keeps everyone guessing. What is known is that 4 out of 5 U.S. citizens favour talks, so that’s good enough for the front running presidential candidate for now.
Both Obama and Brown look like appeasers of Israel from their recent trips to Jerusalem. Brown went on a at length of his childhood memories of the Holy Land as a member of the church and said nothing about Gaza, confiscation of Palestinian land or the rising toll of Palestinian casualties. However his rhetoric led Obama’s with references to the creation of a viable Palestinian state. Obama’s statement about the indivisibility of Jerusalem concerns Palestinians although Israelis still appear to favour McCain as the greater potential ally.
