Obama's administration has been very soft in regards to Israel settlements. Israel has spitted in his face, and that is very bad. However, as usual, nothing is gonna change. Israel will apoligize, and postpone further building in the settlements. There are much more urgent things to deal with. Obama knows that, and will stick to its soft approach towards Israel. You don't mess with allies especially when you have in front of your face criminal states such as Iran. This current rift between America and Israel cannot led astray the real coalition composed by the good old friends of America against the axis of evil. Obama knows that, and that explains his soft policies towards Israel.
