The economic situation in Israel today is not the same as it was in the 90s. Today Israel has a strong growing economy unlike in the 90s when it was very weak and its not in need of billions in loan guarantees to absorb the Soviet jews. Also with the midterms coming there is no way any senator is going to stand up to AIPAC or any other pro Israel lobby groups. Even Obama can't allow the Security Council to condemn Israel for building in Jerusalem because alot of the jewish Democrat voters who are in favor of 2 states are against Obamas attitudes towards Jerusalem. The last thing Obama should be doing is trying to discredit Bibi or overthrow him because the national mood is right wing and so even if he brings down Bibi chances the left will win the next election is still low and he risks somebody even further to the right replacing Bibi. Obama created this stalemate by telling the arabs all he wanted from them was a list of demands he would get for them & demanded nothing in return.
