United States President Barack Obama’s trip to Israel and stopover in the
West Bank was designed to emphasise Washington’s approval of the status
quo, and to reassure Israelis of his firm support for their policies.

His vague statements in favour of a Palestinian state were cynical in the
face of ongoing Israeli actions on the ground, and his own silence on any
proposals to achieve a Palestinian state.
