Obama was praised for signaling a clean break with the catastrophic legacy of his predecessor -- one all too evident in the ruins of, most recently, Gaza. Such attitudes, however, represent a leap of faith unwarranted by the history of US policy toward Israel-Palestine and, more to the point, developments on the ground, still smoldering from Israeli bombardments of unprecedented intensity. 


Leap of Faith, unwarranted.
