    If Romney becomes president, how could he now ever be a major broker in a peace process between Israel and Palestine? You can't be a constructive mediator if you have already alienated one of the sides. Romney may have single handedly set back the peace process significantly which is a terrible shame. The Israel-Palestine dispute is one of the major causes of unrest in the whole area and until it is solved and the wounds start to heal, there will never be any kind of peace in the region. Right now Israel seems to have the same attitude as the extreme Republicans in the US Congress and that is "it's my way or the highway". There has to be some compromise on both sides if anything is ever going to be accomplished.
