For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: Israel fears Obama?
AS WORLD leaders and international organizations rush to rescue Hamas, Israel faces complex bat tlefield challenges - while fearing a stab in the back from the incoming Obama administration. Israel's leaders are asking themselves two questions: Is the cost of sending sufficient ground forces into Gaza just too high? And, upon his inauguration on Jan. 20, will President Obama undercut Israel's counterterror offensive before its goals have been reached?
Will he? Is Obama about to stab America's strongest Middle East ally in the back and thus radically change the political calculus in the region, or is the Post overstated this concern?
