Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Myth is that the US president could just snap it's fingers and Israel would lie down. No way in hell is that true.

For once you have half a point, though in this specific case I think you're wrong and America could get Israel to ramp down their idiotic, counterproductive, and criminal bombing campaign.  It's like Iran and Syria with respect to Hezbollah - lots of support and plenty of influence, but only limited control.
