This article is almost certainly written by a Jewish writer. This is one of the places where my sympathies lie with Palestinians. There are mixed allegiances among Jews who live in the US and they write in support of Israel often to the exclusion of the benefit of honest Palestinian concerns. This also a reason why the US should never have recognized the Vatican as a State. The US more than many nations has its politics riddled by people who do not place the US first. All countries deal with this and there is no perfect way to deal with it but it is something to be acknowledged.
It is certainly a reason why Barak Obama should have to be a proven legitimate US citizen.
