Kerry’s Meddling Goes Nowhere, Obama Tries Rescuing Hamas

Jonathan Schanzer of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies observes, “With tempers flaring across the region — including Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, who is irate over being excluded from the US-led process — President Obama is now trying to dictate an end to the conflict before more damage to American credibility can be done.” It is too late for that, I suspect. Israel is going to continue its essential task of  destroying Hamas’s war machine. Once more the Obama administration is the odd man out, impotent and widely disparaged.
