    "Israel flatly rejects the establishment of a Palestinian Arab state west of the Jordan river. The Palestinians can run their lives freely in the framework of self-rule, but not as an independent and sovereign state." - Likud election platform, Jan. 2009 Netanyahu is a weak leader, fearful of his party, and unwilling to get into a fight to convince the ideologues of the wisdom of compromise. While giving a speech about the need for the "two state solution", this was not approved by the government nor by Likud itself. Too revolutionary for them, and opposed bitterly by many there. Unless the Arab side "helps" Netanyahu find an excuse for his reluctance to proceed in the peace talks, the US will have to blame him, as Shamir was blamed by Papa Bush, and fell from power. If Netqanyahu had realism, he would have gone for peace with Syria. That would have put the Palestinian talks on the back burner and saved Netanyahu's butt. "Man has to know his limitations", said Clint Eastwood.
