| 1 Comment

WASHINGTON--President Obama meets with the leaders of the nation's most influential Jewish organizations on Monday, led by Alan Solow, the Chicago attorney who became the chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations last January.

On the agenda: Obama pressuring Israel to halt settlement expansion. The dozen or so organizations invited to the White House, while united over having U.S. policy continue to bolster Israeli security, there is division over Obama pressuring the Israelis while getting--according to critics of the Obama proposal, no significant concessions from Arab governments in return.
