Clinton, Obama and Abbas are going to have to ditch their "no Jewish apartments" precondition and return to unconditional talks.

It is what Obama himself calls his "early missteps" that have cost him all credibility with Israel. He has visited more than a dozen Arab and Muslim countries, some several times, but refuses to visit Israel. That in itself is a reason not to trust him.
