Obama position only hardened palestinian demands. That is not a recipe for an agreement with the Israelis. This is pretty obvious. How come that Israel will be able to withdraw to the 1949 lines ? What about the 350 000 Israelis that live beyond those lines? Instead of bringing the parties together Obama managed to wide the gap between israelis and palis. Kudos for him.
