The unfairness of the self-appointed arbitrator is the major reason for the anti-american feeling. Obama would be well advised to put UN as the body that takes the decisions. It may mean that USA would have to abide by UN even if the decision is not palatable to USA. Obama is yet to stress that UN is above USA. If he does that, a majority of the problems would resolve itself as the basis for anti-american feeling would disappear.

In fact, the whole article read like a Into to Foreign Affairs class with a closing paragraph tacked on. Maybe the author had to come up with 2500 words in a hurry, and cut and pasted something in quickly, but carelessly.

US may invade countries, install friendly governments in Muslim nations or give massive socioeconomic aid, terrorism will never be controlled unless this conflict is resolved justly. This is the conflict that feeds extremism in most of the Muslim countries. When you go to these countries pictures of Made in American planes and bombs killing the Palestinians are displayed everywhere.

Israel vs. the Palestinian people, land, and nation. By not talking about it, doesn’t mean it will go away.

If we support the right of all people to have their freedom, why not apply this lofty goal to the Palestinian people?

If we want people to start like us as Americans again and buy our products and services, we must appeal to them as honest and credible nation, by reversing what the stupid and brutal Bush’s dogmas have brought upon our nation. One thing that financial crises analysts omitted either on purpose or of ignorance that, the Bush and company scared the hill out of foreign investors by installing the draconian Patriot act on the financial sector, the fall of the dollar was the direct result of oil rich nations divesting and exiting from the Bush belligerent system. The lack of liquidity in the market is because the dollars were not deposited back in the American banking system, either the money is leaving our shore to Israeli government owned banking systems (curtsey of the financial swindlers) or to South Asian banks. As a president of the United States Bush describing our oil suppliers as enemies time and time again, I guess it would not take a genius to figure that this guy is a wacko and a threat to their wealth, so the safest way is to withdraw their nations’ wealth from the American system.
Further more, American Taxpayers need answer to what happened to the 370 billion dollars that Bush and his cronies had to have just two months before his disgraceful departure finally took place? IS ANY BUDY HOME?!!!
