Enough is enough. netanyahu is a duplicious, devious liar who is not to be trusted. Obama should go with his impulse; it is correct. Israel no more believes in a Palestinian state than they do that Silwan will be a "garden". One doesnt need to be a seasoned diplomat to know that Israel has no intention of moving further that what Sharon proposed back in the '70s with his village leagues concept with certain areas given a degree of autonomy and self government, but always under the ultimate control of Israel, which will have taken over more than 40% of Palestinian lands to serve their demographic imperative. He will open a road block here, allow in macaroni and bubble gum into Gaza, plead for direct negotiations and then immediately place impediments in the way of initiating them. More than carrots and sticks are needed here to deal with this racist lot controllling the government.
