Israel's Foreign Ministry ordered to 'reassess' EU involvement with Palestinians after decision to label West Bank goods; 'decision is almost completely devoid of any real significance,' official says.23:15 29.11.15 | 25 comments
I find it interesting that so many are assuming that Obama caved in and pulled back on US settlement demands. This article certainly does not say so and I think that if this was the case little Bibi would be bragging about it. He doesn't want to tell his people he surrendered; otherwise, he'd be crowing about success. Israel has been and remains under the heaviest diplometic pressure it has felt in 40 years. Despite the minority US conservatives who keep saying Obama is weak and weakening, he still has the approval of the majority of the US, particularly now that our economy is improving. Netanyahu and Israel are in a much weaker position than Obama. Israel's frontal assults on Obama and settlement issues last week probably got little Bibi read the riot act. I'll be shocked and very disappointed if Obama backed down. I expect the White House to announce a settlement freeze soon. Interesting that CNN is not reporting the developments yet.
