Obama faces battle in Israel.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – President Barack Obama left for the Middle East on Tuesday evening. He’s on a mission to charm the Israelis into making peace concessions and to find some way to peacefully stop Iran from building a bomb.

However, as CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer reported, there is cynicism about what he can accomplish.

Even before Air Force One was to take off for his first trip to Israel since taking office, President Obama was trying to convince Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the United States is ready to resolve Iran’s nuclear threat peacefully.
