..since retirement, i haven't traveled overseas, so I'm not in touch with International affairs as I once was. Obama becomes "toast" on the international scene, if he bungles this diplomatic rift. maybe... Personally, I think this is the issue that the Obama Admins. fights for. You and I agree on timing for starting and finishing final status talks; and the timing is "short." It's unknown how long the Arab League keeps their proposal on the table--it started in March '02. Eight years..and only six hours in Annapolis w/ Livni and Olmert. That proposal deserves more attention than one day in Annapolis (p.s. that's where I kept my sailboat.) Under Bush, the Israeli-Pal conflict became static; so regardless of the outcome this rift will move the issues and start dynamics again....
