    Perez has no influence with the current government, and little influence with Israelis regarding peace with the Palestinians. There should be no doubt about Americana commitment to help maintain Israeli security. There should also be no doubt that for 30yrs.

True commitment to Israeli security realizes that the increasing unlikely 2-state solution is the only thing that will truly make Israel secure, that and peace agreements with its neighbors as offered by the Saudi proposal (rejected out of hand by Israel), and acceptance of the concessions that the PA was willing to make at great risk to its own security which were also rejected.
