    The king of Jordan's little tantrum against the Obama Administration suggests that the Nobel Peace Prize winner may be waking up to the reality of the threat that the Iran Nuclear Bomb poses to America. If that is really what has happened it would make sense for Obama to give up his outrageous and unrealistic demand that Jews stop building homes in Israel. It may not be long now before the Obama fan club on Haaretz talkback is cursing their Messiah like he was Bush or something. Their shocked howls of disbelief that the Prime Minister's announcement contained no details of the agreement reminds me of the way they reacted when ex-PM Olmert refused to confirm or deny the (according to foreign sources) military self-defence operation over Syria on September 6th, 2007. We will soon find out and what we don't find out soon we will find out later.
