Will this test US-Israeli relations? [AFP]

The latest UN Security Council statement issued after the attack on the Gaza aid flotilla has been watered down by the US.

The US' ongoing and seemingly unlimited support for Israel seems to be upsetting more people, particularly in the Middle East, where the US' image has long been tarnished.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish prime minister, said that "enough is enough" as far as Israel is concerned - sending a message to the Western world and the US administration in particular.

Has this latest crisis put Barack Obama, the US president, in a position where he must make a difficult choice or reconsider his foreign policy priorities in the Middle East? Could this be a turning point in the way the US perceives Israel? And can Washington continue to extend indefinite and unlimited support to Israel regardless of its actions or their ramifications?
