Video: Israelis air views on Obama

Israelis call US president "Arab" and fear he may favour Arabs in Middle East talks.

    Barack Obama, the US president, is getting ready to host Israeli and Palestinian leaders for a meeting he hopes might get peace talks started again.

    But Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, has made clear he will defend his country's policy of settlement expansion - the big sticking point.

    Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher visited the streets of Jerusalem to find out what Israelis think about Obama and his plans.
