Netanyahu does not want peace no matter how Israeli politicians spin it. The Israeli government wants to maintain the status quo and steal more land so that Palestinians are left with crumbs for a country. Abbas's speech was rousing and it was quite obvious who was more popular. Majority of world opinion is on the side of the oppressed - Palestinians. Why can't the Israeli government wake up to this and start acting like an adult instead of a child who wants the whole bag of candy? Netanyahu and his ilk are not honest brokers. And Obama just wants to get re-elected to prove yet again that he has failed as a president. He will change his mind and cede to others depending on what is in his best interest. Obama lost my vote a long time ago.
