First, to those that like to rail against Obama, please remember that when the President takes the office from the opposition party, he is almost ALWAYS re-elected, unless the economy is getting worse. So Obama will very likely be re-elected for a second term and his policies will continue for quite some time. The Obama administration knows that Bibi is constrained by his right-wing alies, who have no support abroad and a minority position within Israel. They would like to see this changed, and the current situation gives them a golden opportunity. They will push this in order to bring about some change in the Israeli government, whether Bibi standing up to these parties, or a new coalition, because they know that this is the only way to bring about a new policy.
