Barack's Dilemma

Despite maintaining the line that there can only be one president at a time, Barack Obama is starting to face pressure from the Arab world to denounce Israel's incursion into Gaza.

What's the dilemma here? Why not just issue a statement that he doesn't condone killing civilians?

Because Obama will soon find himself leading a country that is facing a similar battle against guerrilla fighters (or militants, or terrorists, or whatever you want to call them). And he knows that Israel's approach is actually correct.

And that the death of civilians is the aim, not of Israel, but of Hamas.
