Obama reaching rock-bottom approval is one thing. Netanyahu's astute maneuverings are another. Brazil and Argentina's recognition of a Palestinian state in the pre 1967 borders, in harmonyb with whatever the parties end up with, is yet another. Sheikh Jarrah is another thing, and as for "The United States, Europe and, as we have seen this week, even Argentina and Brazil, have expressed interest in the construction workers who are busy expanding such settlements..." is yet another. It seems to me that Mr. Eldar picked the fragments of a rattled week that were outside the image of the Carmel tragedy, and made a Golem out of them all. I don't see the connection between them: Obama strong? Obama weak? Obama at rock-bottom? Obama being spat at? Can't affort to say it's raining? What's this article about? I generally understand Akiva Eldar, as he is clear.
