The moderators -- both from the Public Broadcasting System (PBS) -- could have, and should have, asked hard, probing, unexpected questions like this:
"Mr. President and Senator Kerry:
Recently the International Court of Justice nearly unanimously ruled about the illegality of Israeli policies
in occupying the Palestinians. And recently still another Israeli spy scandal erupted in Washington. Isn't it time to reevaluate the massive financial and military support the U.S. alone provides yearly to Israel"?
"Mr. Vice-President and Senator Edwards:
Today the U.N. Security Council passed, but the U.S.
vetoed, another resolution about Israel. Only the U.S. voted Against. How can there be a real peace between Israel and the Arabs if nearly the whole world sees tings one way and only the U.S. and Israel always seem to see things and do things otherwise?"
