a person that has real power. One of these days Obama could decide enough, is enough and change the whole situation in a moment by doing one or more of these: - stop using the veto for Israel - any time a vote on Israel comes up, would be a good time for the US team to go to a long lunch in NYC. - Propose a UNSC resolution defining Israel's borders - it would pass unanimously. Then Israel would have no legal way to keep any of the settlements and would have to deal with economic pressure if it resisted. - Stop funding Israel. I know that supposedly Israel does not need the money, but I notice it does not refuse it (so maybe it really does). It never pays to marginalize a person with real power versus the imaginary power Israel thinks it has. In reality, if the US walks away, Israel is a doomed. And do NOT assume that the US will never walk away - that is a very dangerous assumption to make. If the US has to choose between its future and Israel's, Israel is gone.
