The agreement between the US and Israel on settlements and Jerusalem was based upon Israel living up to their prior agreements (i.e. Oslo, Camp David, Roadmap, etc.) Time and time again Israel has not kept their word. This whole situation now is a result of Israel not holding up obligations. There is a reason Israel has no real friends in the world! lol Personally, I wouldn't want to be friends with a person who lies to me and embarrasses me in front of the world. Thank god Obama got some moxy and stood up.
