    ...he opened as everyone expected, and then he "gave in to AIPAC" as expected. Or did he? It was quietly said last week in a briefing that the US had not changed its position on illegal colonies, diplomatically it has simply dropped below the radar, and that's as it should be as the rope is played out. Bibi, becoming bolder and bolder has been led right into a Khaled Meshaal moment. He didn't really own the War on Gaza, that came from those who used it to try and hold onto power before him, but now he owns Dubai. He does not even own the Goldstone Report yet it haunts him. The inevitable personal scandal has happened for Bibi as well. And now an array of bristling neighbors in the region have become very very touchy in the face of Bibi's nationalistic moves that convey to them, the occupations will never end. It is a powder keg. President Obama owns none of it. He is understandably tied up with the economy and health care. Give it time Natallie, Bibi will need something soon.
