    WASHINGTON ó President Obama urged the Israeli government to loosen its blockade of Gaza on Wednesday, as the United States continued to scramble to find a way out of the stalemate in the Middle East and address the outcry over Israelís deadly raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last week.

    Mr. Obama, meeting with the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas, at the White House, also promised a $400 million aid package for the West Bank and Gaza, though only about $70 million represented a new commitment. White House officials said the money would be spent on housing, schools, efforts to provide access to drinking water and other health and infrastructure projects.

    okay. Just making sure you weren't going to claim it's Israel pointing the gun . . . .

    Honestly though (and this is going to sound like heresy to some), I feel bad for the Palestinians. The ones who just want a place to live have been used as pawns by Jordan, Syrian, Iran and just about every other Middle Eastern shithole for generations.

    That's not saying the solution is for Israel is to give up more land, far from it (Even if Helen Thomas is too much of a dumbass to realise there were Jews in that part of the world before the holocaust).

    Here's a solution: why don't we tell Jordan, Lebanon and Syria to give the Palestinians back the land they stole from them in the fucking first place?

    I can understand and relate - and you're right. The Average Joe Arab living in palestine has been nothing but a pawn throughout this whole thing. Of course this does not make it Israels fault.

    It is obvious who's side Obama has chosen. He has his picture taken with Abbas and refuses to with Netanyahu.
    He has picked his side and will now ignore our only ally in the Mideast.
    This will embolden their enemies and nothing good will come of this.

    Anyone that believes that a portion of that $400 million will not go for weapons is living in la la land.
