As I listened to the joint news conference between President Obama and German Chancellor Merkel, there were references by Mr. Obama to both the Berlin Wall and the Israeli-Palestinian problem.
The President noted that ‘walls should not be built,’ then he referenced the tearing-down of the Berlin Wall after President Reagan challenged the Soviet Leader to do so.
Odd that he did not challenge Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to do the same. Odd is a kind word; pitiful may be better. Why didn’t our president have the courage to do so? After all, he no longer needs the ‘Jewish vote.’
