DES MOINES, Iowa An Iowa Democrat and member of a prominent pro-Israel lobbying group is calling on Senator Barack Obama to clarify sympathetic comments he made about Palestinians.

The Illiniois senator made the comments when he spoke Sunday to a small group of Democratic activists in Muscatine.

He was quoted in The Des Moines Register as saying -- quote -- "nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people" -- end quote.

David Adelman is a member of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which lobbies on behalf of Israel, and the Greater Des Moines Jewish Federation.

He wrote Obama calling the comment deeply troubling and asking the senator to clarify himself.

A spokesman for Obama says the senator's comments were consistent with his previous statements.

Those were about how the Palestinian people are suffering from the Hamas-led government's refusal to renounce terrorism and join in the peace process.
