Obama is a politician- and a good diplomat. All who take real peace, justice, and Palestine seriously would be wise to follow Obama's example: He obviously knows the vital importance of having a civilized and reasonable conversation: The importance of calming down and ending the Israel/Palestine conflict rather than inciting more rage, religious extremism, hate mongering rhetoric and counterproductive moves by both sides.
Various enemies of peace and a two state solution are quick to accuse peace makers and diplomats of being collaborators and quislings and other such insults- quick to sabotage good intentions and the hard work of many different people who seek to calm down and end the disastrous Israel/Palestine conflict. The biggest shift towards a just and lasting peace already is firm and obvious support for a nonviolent and secular two state solution for everyone's sake. Focus in on that if you want to help shift things along in more positive and helpful ways.
