Obama's promises to AIPAC

(Presidential candidate Barack Obama) told the group that he would do "everything" -- "and I mean everything" to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, a threat of military action that matches anything President George W. Bush has ever said.

He also proposed giving Israel foreign aid without requiring that Egypt get similar aid
(a policy that goes all the way back to Camp David.) And he pledged to support keeping Jerusalem as the capital -- and having it remain undivided -- which would pre-empt most diplomatic paths currently on the table.

act as though I made the part about Jerusalem bold, too. My computer wouldn't let me do it.
