ABSTRACT
The article evaluates how U.S. President Barack Obama handles the Middle East war. It highlights the declining popularity of Obama in Israel and its impact on its reliance on American support and credibility. It is believed that Obama faulted on considering that the Arab conflict is about Israeli West Bank settlements or Israel's denial of the Palestinians' legitimate aspirations for a state of their own in the West Bank and Gaza. Another concern noted is rejection of the verbal understanding on settlements reached between Israel and the U.S. in 2003.
