    It is an act and nothing to be overly concerned about. Netanyahu is trying to be seen as the person who is driving the agenda, forcing Iran to stop it's nuclear programme and leading the way in peace talks in an attempt to fool Israelis into thinking that Netanyahu is saving the State singlehandedly. When the truth of the matter is everytime he is at The White House he looks like a rabbit caught in a car's headlights, looking absolutely terrified. But Netanyahu is in a quandary he cannot minimise ties with The White House because Israelis have an understandable pride in the closeness of ties between Israel and the United States. Yitzhak Rabin's relationship with President Bush Snr broke down irrevocably and he lost his job as Prime Minister. Netanyahu is desperate not to meet the same fate whilst also being desperate not to risk his coalition by moving towards a two state solution. You have to remember all that matters to Netanyahu is for his name to be on the PMO's door.

    from the article: Does Obama delay in scheduling Netanyahu meet point to crisis?
