Up To Jerusalem, Mr. President

In another of his trenchant Friday columns on Israel and the Palestinians, Roger Cohen says that it's time for Barack Obama to set his face for Jerusalem:

Only an Obama gamble can break the logjam by September. He should go to Jerusalem in May and address the Knesset. He should spell out all the ways America will guarantee Israel’s security. He must coax Israel from the siege mentality that blinds it to the opportunities multiplying around it. He can spread the love.

A new Middle East deserves more than an old Israel.
