The problem with this article is that it assumes that Obama actually has the ability to push Israel. I think it is clear that Netanyahu is banking on the assumption that the Israel lobby will protect Israel, once again, from American pressure. He may be right. If he is and Obama is forced to back down, then Obama will have lost his credibility and Israel will have further sealed its slide into becoming an outright apartheid state and an international pariah. But it seems that many Israelis are quite happy to live that way.
