"... change to the 2008 Democratic platform, which stated that Jerusalem “is and will remain” Israel’s capital. The line has been removed from the 2012 Democratic platform. In addition, the 2012 platform does not say that Palestinian refugees or their descendants will only be allowed to resettle inside a future Palestinian state, not property inside Israel. The 2008 platform made clear they would only be allowed to resettle inside a future Palestinian state – not Israel — effectively rejecting what has come to be known as the Palestinian “right of return.” Washpost
This is a major change, and a gauntlet flung down in the face of AIPAC. Eric Cantor is, of course, whining about this.
IMO, this will have no effect on the outcome of the presidential election and that is what Obama must think as well.
If that is so, then BHO's second term would a "racy course" for Israel and people like Cantor. pl
