    Congress goes into auto-pilot back patting when someone gives a speech, nothing new to see here. We all know the truth: Israel can not afford to let their guard down by giving up areas that are definitive to their survival and security. Did you really think Bibi would simply roll over to Obama's speech and think about giving up such strategic areas? The thought alone did not enter his mind. Never again means NEVER AGAIN !!! Do you think Hamas, a terrorist organization, has had a change of heart and will likely recognize Israel as a sovereign state? It is time to put politics aside and get behind Bibi, whether you like him or not. The world was listening to his "applause" and they did not like his answers. This is going to get very ugly soon and Israel has no choice now, but to stand its ground. The line has been drawn in the sand, like it or not. I hope Obama doesn't forget which side of the line we are standing on, the one with Abraham, Isaac & Jacob (Israel).
