    ....fail to understand, that the right (not only Lieberman's extreme right) in Israel is not yet willing to accept the idea of a sovereign Palestinian state next to Israel, in the same way as Hamas has not yet shown a real commitment on the Palestinian side to do so. Please read the Likud party program, and you know what's up, it says explicitly, that the goal of the Likud party still is to prevent a 2 state solution at any costs. And this is only Likud, not even to talk about Lieberman's party or the religious ones. There is ZERO possibility that a peace accord with Abbas can be reached with the current governement. The only little chance for that would be, if Netanyahu would throw out Lieber- man and the religous parties and bring Kadima into the boat. That is why I believe, that it is Obamas strategy to bring the current Israeli governement down, because he sees it as I do, namely that any negotiations with this governe- ment are a pure waste of time....
