I think this whole thing is driven by the so-called "pro-Israel lobby". It is manipulating the office of the president to achieve narrow goals which hold no national interest for the US. See this:

I gotta wonder exactly WHAT is being held over Obama's head to get him to take this no-win position? Must be something bad (and I'm not agreeing with "birthers" by saying this).
