No nation gives something for nothing. Since Obama failed to reciprocate Bibi's E1 offer, you will see Israel building there. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    For agreeing to postpone E1 construction and his 10-month freeze, Obama failed to deliver on PA negotiations, failed to deliver on Arab State normalization gestures, failed to deliver on F-35s, failed to deliver on 1701 ban on missiles into Lebanon, and failed to deliver on effective Iran sanctions. Further, we see from the Al-Jazeera Leaks that Obama idiotically tried to get Israel to stop building in Jewish parts of Jerusalem the PLO had already agreed would stay with Israel - effectively putting Abbas up a tree with a demand he didn't want and wrecking the entire peaceprocess - just to Obama could show the Arab world he could push Israel around. Which the US Congress got fed up with and ordered him to cease. Thats why you see Obama not mentioning MIdeast Peace in his State of the Union!! Completely screwed it up, and now at least is Shutting Up. BOTTOM LINE: Bibi owes Obama nothing, its the other way around. Israel will be building in E1 as it chooses, and Obama will shut his mouth unless he starts delivering. US aid to Israel is linked to its 1979 Camp David commitments,comes from Congress, has nothing to do with Obama.
