President Obama's obsession with Israeli-Palestinian peace might be exciting for Jews or Palestinians, but it is morally perverse to focus on Middle Eastern humanitarian issues when hundreds of thousands of women are being raped every year in the Congo, Darfur is starving, and there is another threat of horrific death and ethnic cleansing in a civil war between North Sudan and South Sudan.
