Anyone reading these posts on Haaretz, and I am sure that includes the Haaretz editor and management, can see that in recent years more and more posts are from Americans and most are critical of Israel's behaviour. Whatever Netanyahu thinks he can do with Obama the reality is that it is the American people who elect their president and Obama knows that - the US does not need Israel, Israel needs the US to survive - but every American president needs the support of the American people. As Haaretz so often suggests and advises - if Israel is to survive it needs to change its ways. There is still time, just, for a two-state solution. But not for much longer. When you have lost American support then a one-state solution will be imposed on you quickly.
