Why do you call for Israel to give up its Jewish identity and not ask the Palestinians to give up their Muslim identity? It could be argued the Jews have deeper roots in the region because their religion is much older.
First of all you seem to be under the impression that the people of Palestine are all Muslim.
A bilateral government seems like a good idea, but it looks unlikely that it will ever be achieved. Israel has recently given back much land and what do they get? Rockets fired at them. I am doubtful the Palestinians would share a government with the Jews. It looks like the only possible solution is to partition the region, with the Palestinians returning to Jordan.
The whole world wants to see peace in that region, and I'm sure Barack Obama wants to see that too. But Israel is an important ally of the U.S. and I don't think he wants to sacrifice that relationship either. And then, to be cynical (and I say this even though I'm going to vote for him), he wants the Jewish vote in November.
Barack Obama will be a much better president than the last one, but even he cannot solve the problem without cooperation from both sides.
