I urge all of your readers to exercise caution. Remember the game is to float trial balloons and then snatch them away when the bait is taken. Prime Minister Netanyahu is promised American F 35's if he takes certain actions… Later on the United States will cancel the F 35 program. Israel is offered guarantees for a cease-fire in Lebanon. Soon, the US and the UN look the other way while Syria provides Hezbollah with advanced missiles and other armaments. My associate Saeb Erekat is a master of double dealing and deceit (just what you would expect and hope for if you are hiring an effective and experienced Middle East negotiator) . President Obama and his administration were aware of these promises and one might even say commitments. Thus, when the Obama administration raised the criteria that Israel should halt building in East Jerusalem and on the West Bank they pushed the Palestinian Authority into a corner that they did not want to be in. After all ,they could not be more favorable to Israeli action than the American president. All we can glean from these documents is that the Middle East is complex and that the American administration and State Department can only screw things up to the detriment of the Israelis, the Palestinians, and all the other nations in the Middle East.
