Shebang! Full page ad in NYT: YES YOU CAN MR PRESIDENT

Richard Silverstein (see the ad there).

Israel Policy Forum purchased a full page ad in today’s N.Y. Times that attempted to lay the groundwork for the upcoming first meeting between Barack Obama and Bibi Netanyahu in their new roles. The text was remarkable not for what it said. The sentiments repeated tried and true rhetoric from the American Jewish peace movement about a two state solution, ending violence, freezing settlements, promoting Israel-Syria negotiations, etc. What was important was the headline:

Yes You Can, Mr President–achieve a two state solution…We Support You.

Things they are a changin' in the Ole' US of A, make no mistake about it...
