US backs israel by 4-to-one, only Obama's failed leftist presidency, out of touch, out of step with the American people, unable even to push through its core socialized medicine "health program", wants to cozy up to Abbas. Obama requires Congress approval and suppurt for his foreign policy, and he isn't getting that. Widely agreed here that he is only using "peace process" as a PR stunt to try to slow his crashing poll numbers and the expected disaster the Democrats face in the November elections because of him. Bibi should just mark time until Obama and his party take the expected clobbering in the next elections - signal for him to alter course or face landslide removal in 2012. US is visibly sick of this clown. Bibi is bright enough to realize that he won't get any reciprocity from Obama no matter what he concedes to the PA: deal should be for 80-90% of 1998-2000 Clinton deal Arafat wrecked over "right of return". Rewarding terror by sweetening the old deal endangers every American.
