Obama should join alt lobby and call for lifting of siege

on 3 Comments

Earlier today I knocked Americans for Peace Now; but let’s be clear about something: Peace Now has called for lifting the blockade on Gaza. So has J Street:

J Street has been and continues to be opposed to the blockade – believing that there are better ways to ensure Israel’s security and to prevent weapons smuggling than a complete closure of the Gaza Strip.

Isn’t this an easy call for the Obama administration? Can’t the killings in the flotilla have that good effect, to force the lifting of the siege?
