Peres is giving lip service to Obama. Netanyahu has done everything possible to cut the legs out from under US policy since before Obama was inaugurated. And now the Palestinians pay him no attention. US still comes up with some money for the PA to interfere with Iranian funding. Obama is smarter than Bush at least in that respect. So is the EU. But with the current US House, US funding may give way to Iran. Nature abhors a vacuum. And the new US House has Ros-Lehtinen to sabotage the rest of US influence.
