There is a difference between going after low-hanging fruit, and going after fruit in someone else's basket (or trying to squish the fruit already in the basket).
After reports of being completely rejected by the Arab States in an attempt to get them to publicly show some gesture to Israel in exchange for a settlement freeze, Obama is widening his circle.
Obama sent a letter to Morocco's King Mohammed VI, saying He hoped Rabat would "be a leader in bridging gaps between Israel and the Arab world."
On one hand, you can say that Obama is now going after the low-hanging fruit in an attempt to find some Arab country willing to make a public gesture to Israel, or help get the other Arab state make those public gestures.
On the other hand, Israel already has a relationship with Morocco. It never ended. Israelis can visit Morocco (with a visa). We've had Foreign Ministers visit Morocco - openly. I believe Morocco even has a liaison office in Tel Aviv. We certainly openly trade with one another.
In fact, Moroccan Jews in Israel may even hold dual citizenship.
And Morocco for the most part keeps its nose out of the local conflict - and as a result it's never gotten seriously bloodied by it.
It is a carefully balanced formula that works for everyone.
Hey Obama, it's one thing to go after low-hanging fruit. It's another thing to try to grab the fruit already in our basket and try to squish it.
Maybe He'll go after Tunis next.
