    "I fear Bibi is beginning to betray his people in rolling over for Obama." Israel's boundary was fixed by the armistice agreement with Jordan in 1967 (the Green Line). Bibi knows that there is only one way he can legitimately acquire more territory outside Israael's present established boundaries. And that is by negotiating a trade agreement with PLO. Everything he does is aimed at getting that agreement signed. Bibi is betraying his people by pursuing a course designed to force that agreement whether PLO likes it or not. Such coercive tactics only aggravate the disharmony that already exists. He does not work for peace. He works for gain. What he is doing is transparent; and by pursuing this course, Bibi is losing support. Obama is pushing for him to change his tactics, to be honest about his intentions. But Bibi wants the world to believe that he is workng for peace. It is a lie. And the world knows it. Bibi will not last much longer.
