Amos Harel is right. Sadly, tragically, inevitably, the totally obstructive intransigence of the present Israeli Netanyahu government is leading to further isolation and setting the stage for a debacle of epic scope. Nearly everyone on the planet is frustrated and over it, including even supporters of the Jewish State such as myself. . Israel is on a collision course, further isolating itself and continuing to alienate entire nations simply because it refuses to stop stealing other people's land. A permanent halt to the illegal settlement of the occupied territories is the only first sincere step toward any lasting peace. The USA continues to enable Israeli folly and some tough love is required like a withdrawal of the billions in aid until the illegal settlement ends. Mr Obama toughen up and please earn that Nobel prize.
