If the result were not so tragic the incompetence of the Arab League would be downright funny. With their imbecilic insistence on the complete cessation of construction they give authority over negotiations to the Israeli faction that wants to build. Netanyahu stop the building? -he doesn't want to. The real power lies with the President of the US - it always has. Obama has recently given us hope, the question is his integrity. Obama drew the line in the sand, Netanyahu kicked it in his face. Will Obama stand up? Is he a man of principle or just another craven failed politician? The whole world is watching.
