    The most important point is that an American president has seriously cast down the gauntlet to Israels leadership and Israels leadership responded with all the pressure they could muster. This pressure did not have any effect at all. Other presidents have avoided angering Israel for fear that Israel could muster a much larger problem for the American government. That fake bogeyman has now been exorcised. Israel may have the vocal support of the American congress, but little other support in America. Obama has thrown a feint at Israel and received Israels best punch in return. Now Obama is free to plot his real course with no fear of crippling distractions. As for Bibi, he can stay and cooperate or make way for others. It is not important.
