Obama not looking out for Israel

I see The Sun is still living in La La Land ("Opening the door to peace," March 26). President Barack Obama and The Sun really believe that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas can be a "true partner." Unbelievable!

Either President Obama is still blowing smoke as usual or the Israelis really became stupid. First, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apologized to the Turks because some lowlifes tried to sneak weapons into Gaza and got killed for their trouble. Then the Israelis released withheld "payments" (whatever that is) to the Palestinian Authority.

My question to The Sun and Mr. Obama is, what's in it for Israel? I don't see anything in The Sun about what the terrorists are going to do in return. How about an answer?
