    An excellent article. If I didn't have a good understanding of the situation I WOULD ALSO BE FOOLED. It feels good to believe such words and hopes. An end to the occupation and an actual independent state of Palestine sounds wonderful. BUT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE and will never happen. It is a fairy tale. It is a psychological and emotional trick, and the Israelis (Zionists) are excellent at this, as they have shown by their track record in the past. I actually have very much respect for Bibi and I think that he is playing it very well ( as usual ). It's really not Obama's fault because he is idealistic and very naive. Bibi will out negotiate, out maneuver , out smart, out play Obama. I love my President Obama, but he doesn't have a chance against Bibi. I wish this was not true, but it is. Israel will say and do anything to advance their ownership of Israel and genocide the Palestinians.
