    Consider: 1) Only 2 weeks ago,in midst of delicate China negotiations China over Iran sanctions, Obama enraged and humiliated Chinese by choosing that moment to announce a $7 bil. arms sale to Taiwan. Result: China decided to reject Sanctions against Iran. Arms package to Taiwan didn't need announcing then, won't be delivered for years. Did Israel publically blow up at Obama? No. Yet Obama administration clearly knew negative impact a Taiwan arms announcement would have. 2) Obama's well aware Israel won't consider ANY "freeze" on homebuilding in Jerusalem, and Obama is under a 1995 Congressional directive to regard Jerusalem as Israeli. Neyanyahu's policy is same as predacessors going back 30 years. Abbas was never promised a "Jerusalem freeze" for mere "indirect talks". So Obama blows up over a routine J'lem municipal planning announcement - no actual buildings for years? Whose he kidding? Floundering Obama regime is after blame, not peace. America sees through this phony.
