    Everyone on the Hill is terrified of the Jewish vote, losing donations to select Senators and Comgressmen and the overweaning power of the Zionist lobby. Never has such a small tail wagged such a big dog. Obama can do his best, but there's Bibi hoping, praying and working for a Republican victory led by Christian Zionist extremists, while stalling on anything to do with making the concessions needed for peace. The USA is a busted flush in this matter. Once the mid-terms are over, time for the EU and UN to close with Obama, lend him a backbone and force change. It is never going to come from the Likudniks and Israeli far right, they are too immersed in and committed to their racist drive to the East. They have nothing to offer or trade in negotiations and Bibi could no more close a settlement bloc than he could talk for one minute without telling a lie.
