    'These three demands come directly from the Pals and Obama is only delivering. ' You wish! All three of course are long-standing, core demands from the UN, supported by the EU, Quartet and now the USA. Jerusalem, refugees and the Jordan Valley must and will be on the negotiating agenda, as they always have been. Netanyahoo's far-right cabal can talk tough to the Israeli audience and try to trick their way round it, but they have no choice but to concede and do so pdq. You do not yank the USA's chain if you are smart. It could bring Netanyahoo to his knees in a day if it wanted. Forget upgrading EU trade ties, forget invites to NATO meetings, forget UN vetos to block the vote on Goldstone and more, forget F35 fighters and military aid - and that's just the start. The bottom line is that the world is not going to be dictated to by a bunch of far right, loopy nationalist zealots who continuously and illegally steal land and bully its owners unmercifully.
