Possible alternate translation: Let’s try to boil your century-long clash down to disagreements over things like oil pipelines or timber pricing — that kind of stuff:

Obama described his vision: “There will be a sovereign Palestinian state, a sovereign Jewish state of Israel and those two states can, I think, will be able to deal with each other the same way all states do.”

And then he invoked this example: “I mean, you know, the United States and Canada has arguments once in a while, but they’re not the nature of arguments that can’t be solved diplomatically.”

The Right Scoop: “It just seems like yesterday that Canada was lobbing missiles into Wisconsin.”

Obama might be under the impression that the U.S. and Canada once had a much more rocky relationship that they’ve since overcome, because I’m told Air Force One’s in-flight movie earlier this week was Canadian Bacon:
