...this ugly game is also about Netanyahu setting a trap for Abbas and Obama. We are equal partners, right? As I see it, both Barak and Netanyahu understands that a diplomatic tsunami, and a malicious trap (according to Benn), indeed is coming. But if Obama and Abbas uses traps and tricks (according to Benn) then Netanyahu will retailiate with measures that uses the methods of Abbas in order to complicate an already complex situation. There will not be an independent palestinian state in september, but there will be a lot of noise and violence (but not a "third intifada). Nothing is inevitable in life, except that we pay taxes until death arrives.
