Orfalea, Gregory. “Obama and the Middle East” (Antioch Review, 2008)

In “Obama and the Middle East” (copyright 2008 by the Antioch Review), Mr. Orfalea explores the question of whether Barack Obama has “the toughness, the resoluteness, and yes, the physical bravery…to do what has to be done to achieve Israeli-Palestinian peace.” He does this by examining the trajectory of Obama’s attitude toward the problem.
