Obama may appear weak in giving up on direct talks, but the real loser is Bibi and all of us. For a very long time we assumed America was 100+% behind us. We were the little brother America would rush to protect. Then when Obama wanted us to agree to a 90 day construction freeze America offered us a package of goodies. But, why offer goodies if America is 100+% with us? Were not the goodies there anyway? Now, the goodies have been withdrawn...there is no doubt of that. So where do we stand with America? My bet is nowhere. An expected American Veto in the UN of any action against us will result in an Abstention at best. And does anyone really think Argentina is the last country to recognize the State of Palestine?
