    "Biden: East Jerusalem plan undermines peace talks" - Haaretz So what? Israel will only stop humiliating America and crushing peace when the USA stops it's craven submission to the Netanyahu government. Why should those Israeli's wishing peace be disturbed so long as they know that the USA will support the Israeli right and do nothing to act for peace? Biden, the 'open mouth, close mind, babble endlessly' guy has just served to promote Bibi and destroy hopes for peace by his mere presence and actions in Israel. Bibi, in his utterly reckless style shoved crap in Biden's face and the only response is disappointment? When the US Government starts to actually harm Israel - then, and ONLY THEN - with the Netanyahu government change it's behavior. This is not what the Obama administration wants. It has no desire to harm Israel, but until the USA stands up to Netanyahu and inflicts suffering upon Israel for it's actions will Israel and Netanyahu change their behavior.
