Because that's the ultimate proof that US Middle East policy is dictated by Israel. Therefore, your thanking to MR. YES WE CAN BE ALL ABOUT RETHORICS AND NOTHING ABOUT COHERENCE is very useful indeed. And, Mr.Netanyahu, You may shout all You want for direct "negotiations" that won't do You any good .And not even your traditional fatherly figure, The US, can help You this time as Abbas unprecedented refusal to Obama shows it . The Pals ( and the world for that matter - 14 to 1, ouch !!!) are clever enough to know that with your alleged "negotiations" Israel wants to humiliate the Palestinean people by imposing them left overs. You may be smiling right now, Mr.Nethanyau, but History, which is mightier than any religious book, will teach You that the one who laughs at last it's the one who laughs the most.
