Both Obama and netanyahu have their own political concerns in their home countries, netanyahu with his crazed rabble in his coalition and Obama his worries abut the upcoming elections. The last thing he needs on his back right now is Abe Foxman and the pitbulls of AIPAC making their strident calls in the halls of Congress. But beyond that, we can believe that Obama areally is commited to seeing the formation of a Palestinian state. The same cannot be siad of netanyahu who has mouthed the worlds but in his actions is frantically doing all in his pwer to see that that does not happen. How do we see that? By his policies in action of course. His first agreeing to a settlement frezze and then his qualifications that existing settlements must be allowed to grow due to "natural growth" and that the freeze does not apply to East Jerusalem which is his attmept to see that EJ is never the capital of the State of Palestine. Duplicious and deceiving, the two pillars of his policy.
