Obama: empty of Middle Eastern promise

As I've remarked here before, but perhaps I haven't put the point strongly enough: Barack Obama has lost the good will of Muslims around the world already. He needs to keep -- now, to regain -- this good will, if he is to have a chance of not making the same mistakes as Bush has made and that McCain would make.
People who support the Palestinians (including me -- and international law!) believe of course that East Jerusalem and the West Bank are being held illegally by Israel. Barack Obama stated that he supported a Middle-East settlement that meant Israel would keep the WHOLE of Jerusalem forever ... WE WONT EVER ACCEPT THAT.
