Obama: observação sobre Israel

Matthew Yglesias refere uma observação de Obama sobre Israel: Getting Bolder (Foreign Policy). Tenho de confessar: isto, no meio de eleições, eleições norte-americanas, é ousado e muito, muito, interessante. A frase, citada de outro blogue, é a seguinte:

"I think there is a strain within the pro-Israel community that says unless you adopt an unwavering pro-Likud ap-proach to Israel, then you're anti-Israel, and that can't be the measure of our friendship with Israel," leading Democratic presidential contender Illinois Senator Barack Obama said Sunday."If we cannot have an honest dialogue about how do we achieve these goals, then we're not going to make progress," he said.He also criticized the notion that anyone who asks tough questions about advancing the peace process or tries to secure Israel by anyway other than "just crushing the opposition" is being "soft or anti-Israel."
