In the early 90's i believe G H BUSH threatened Yitzak Shamir to halt certain settlement buildings or he would cut of a loan guarantee of 10 billion dollars and the also had threatened to cut off financial aid if he refused to talk to the palestinians in the secret meetings of the late 80's in spain that eventually ran up to the Oslo Accords. In both cases Shamir gave in. Israel is still dependant on the US for financial and military aid and if Netanyahu continues his arrogance on the settlements issue, then Obama should make the same threat. Thats how Israel will move.
