The author reflects on the relationship between Barack Obama and the pro-Israel lobby the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). Particular focus is given to the future of the city of Jerusalem. Rhetoric connected to the 60th anniversary of Israel's establishment is examined. The author suggests that Obama discuss the Israeli-Palestinian issue with the Jewish J Street lobby and with U.S. senator Dennis Kucinich who recognize other sides of the issue.
