There has been some strong reaction in the US to President Obama's speech on the Middle East on Thursday, particularly regarding his call for a two-state solution for Israel and the Palestinians based on the 1967 borders.
Leading Republican Mike Huckabee, who was a candidate in the 2008 presidential primaries, said the president had "betrayed Israel and made a grievous mistake" in promoting a policy that's an "outrage to peace, sovereignty of Israel, and a stable Middle East."
Mitt Romney, who was also a candidate for the Republican nomination in the 2008, said Mr Obama "has thrown Israel under the bus".
Several other figures on the right have made similar comments.
President Obama is meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Washington today amid sharp differences on the way forward for the Middle East peace process.
Mr Netanyahu has already said the pre-1967 borders are "indefensible".
An estimated 500,000 Israelis live in settlements built in the West Bank, which lies outside those borders.
What do you think, has President Obama betrayed Israel or has he found a way of breaking the deadlock in the Middle East peace process?
