Some of you analysis, Avi, is quite sound. However, Obama, is mainly concerned with favor towards the PA/leaders/people. He, Biden, Jones, Mitchell, Clinton have not said one word to Abbas to hold him accountable for writing a new charter. The PA's goals have not changed. They replicate Hamas, Hezbollah, Assad, Ahmadinejad, etc., etc. You have overlooked the most serious component of this tragic political disaster for Israel. Israel's foes do not want Israel. They are in concert with their pseudo-proposals of "peace." Do you not understand? According to their beliefs: no Israel, no Jews, no Zionists, no sympathizers. There is MUCH more to this than you report!
