Obama is too serious about peace for many Jewish groups

M. J. Rosenberg writes:
...self-proclaimed "mainstream" pro-Israel organizations (i.e., the organizations of the right and center right) are deeply worried that President Obama is going to keep pushing Israel towards an end of the occupation and peace. Their immediate worry is that Obama does not distinguish between good settlements and bad ones. And also that Jews are backing President Obama not Prime Minister Netanyahu. In other words, their organizational flock is not following the leaders.
The Arab - Israeli conflict has poisoned all middle eastern politics for 60 years. These guys don't want it resolved, and they fear that Obama does.

Let's hope Obama is really serious about forcing peace.
