Since Netanyahu made his speech in June 2009 endorsing the two-state solution, I accepted that he was sincere. The speech was a reversal of the long-held Likud ideological belief in Greater Israel and bound to cause a rift within Likud. Indeed, even the settlers began to believe Netanyahu was serious. But perhaps it was all made to fool Obama and the World. Perhaps all Netanyahu wanted was to undermine the talks but place the blame on the Palestinians. Netanyahu is a PR man, not a leader of stature, and perhaps he was thinking like a PR man here too. On Monday we will find out if the Arab League tells Abbas to pull out of the peace talks. They may be correct in doing so. If Netanyahu cannot agree to a 2-month freeze now, even in return for enormous benefits offered by the US, there is no hope for peace with him. Labor should quit the government on Tuesday, and let the Netanyahu second (and last) coming draw to its end. Get rid of this showman.
