    Just as the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces in Egypt declined to sully its reputation by standing behind Mosni Mubarak, SCAF perhaps felt it would be unwanted carry on baggage for the eventual elected government for SCAF to take the $3 billion loan Obama offered some weeks ago. Obama... whose right-hand man in the "Quartet" is Tony Blair. Tony Blair. The man who recently said that if there was a two state solution: "...Israel would get to keep the settlements and Palestine would get... aaah... aaah... aah... what's left." He said that. I sat here in my lounge room and watched him say that on TV. Ultimately, anything that one-sided would make the continuing threat of terrorism to the United States and Israel, a greater and more permanent threat of terrorism to the United States and Israel. In September of 2000 Sharon ascended Temple Mount under armed guard, symbolically proclaiming that there would never be an end to the settlements... there would never be and end to the occupation... there would never be a Palestinian state... and that East Jerusalem would never be it's capital. Was he wrong? May Bibi have a stroke like Sharon and may they both wake up in ten years to find the settlements removed to the Negev. The only thing we remember of Obama in Cairo, is the inconvenience of having him in town for the day.
