    The endlessly dishonest Hillary Clinton has used up all her credibility by making "offers" and then reneging on them, and she and Mitchell, architects of the bankrupt "freeze" scam (which they now admit focused on the wrong issue) are out of cards. As long as these two are associated in any way with "mediating", Bibi will be waiting out the Obama regime until a new White House team is elected in 2012. Thesetwo have steered the "peace process" to a dead end by failing to act on their recognition all along (as we know from Wikileaks) that the REAL obstacle is not a few apartments to be built in 3 years, but Abbas' weakness and inability to deliver anything in return for the "land" part of Land-for-Peace; a new mediation team has to deal with the fact that Hamas will torpedo any peace deal, and Israel is not going to go for "land-for-Rockets". The 63 year impass has stalled on the refusal of the "Palestine Arabs" to accept that they have to recognize a Jewish State neighbor as the price for independence,as the UN first ordered them to do in 1947. And as Egypt and Jordan have done. Side-stepping this central issue was a Clinton blunder of such magnitude that she can't continue - that andher inability to keep confidential material confidential (took her 6 months after Mannings arrest to shut off State Dept.internet links until the security breech was fixed - she had to be dragged kicking and screaming to this action, and the Pentagon eventually had to do it for her, over her objections). She's done. America (which never wanted her anywhere near the White House) wants her OUT, so Bibi isn't about to give her anything.

Why Barak regrets speaking out on Iran

There was no security breach in what the former defense minister said about how an attack was thwarted; what has suffered is mainly Israel’s image as a well-run, normal country whose leaders are capable of keeping a secret.

The silenced history of the IDF's 'Mizrahi problem'
