    The whole paper is based on the Akiva's fantasy, speculations, and attempts to relate events and assign some special demonic powers to Bibi and Obama. For example, "... Netanyahu punched Obama in the stomach, in the form of a WikiLeaks cable about the Arabs who hate the Iranians and who don't have time left to hate the Jews..." Were released cables related to Israel, or just happened to be in a bunch of cables? Isn't it especially stupid to consider a side effect as a reason? Or, another example, "...The president also understands that after three months of a second settlement freeze, he would have found himself without any kind of agreement and facing repeated Arab demands to extend the freeze again..." Was not it obvious to everybody right from the beginning? What is the news here? What was a reason to think otherwise? Obviously, Akiva Eldar does not know how and why the idea of this freeze deal appeared in the first place (as well as most of us do not know)...
