Anyone who before had even the slightest hope that the Israeli government is interested in Peace can now toss that aside. This government does not care whether it is breaking Internationa law, binding UNSC resolutions, commitments under the road map, etc. Their ultimate goals are clear. This is not only an insult to President Obama but a direct challenge to him and the U.S. as well. Israel is very confident that other than a few words of criticism from the U.S. that they will not take any serious actions against them. I hope President Obama will prove me wrong but sadly the Israeli government is probably right that Obama doesn't have the courage to stand up to them.
