"the U.S. administration is obsessed, working in every possible way to force a construction freeze in the East Jerusalem's Jewish neighborhoods on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. " Obama's Best Buddy Biden just had a very dramatic demonstration of how effectively ISRAEL can kill off any prospect of negotiations by announcing more settlement construction. Obama therefore has no choice, because IF he leaves that trigger in Netanyahu's hand THEN he leaves Israel with the ability to kill negotiations AND the example of Biden tells him that Israel does not hesitate to pull that trigger. So if he wants any negotiations to be successful (and he does) then he must remove that weapon from Bibi's Hot Little Hands (which he will). That's not "obsession", but it is "commonsense".
