Bibi is selling a terrible product but you have to admire his cunning. In this case he is playing on the corrupted USA political system, where money and lobbies are more powerful than supposed 'American values'. When I heard of what Obama was offering for basically nothing (Bibi can mess around with the peace talks for 2 months) it sounded like it would be music to him. But he also waited a few days to humiliate Obama too. Very clever. Now he can up the aid, has Obama never asking for a moratorium again, backing Israel more blindly than already (if possible), and a whole load of weaponry and other promises, for not building for 2 months in the 'proposed' Palestine (not in his lifetime ?). For a dodgy salesman this is remarkable.
