Step 1) The US gave Abbas millions (IIRC, 20 million) to hold off the ICC for two months. 2) The POTUS says he had a great time, in Israel, but that Israel is intransigent. He announced that the US will be moving away from Israel, if Kerry can't get Israel to agree to the Green LIne border (the US and the UN already have declared the Green LIne Palestine's borders). Israel has refused the POTUS, and will refuse Kerry. 3) As was announced in this issue of Haaretz, 100 Jewish American leaders asked Binny to give up some land and make peace. 4) Said Americans will tell the Jewish American communities that Israel does not want peace. 5) Americans, Jewish and not, will be even MORE tired of Israel than Florida was tired of Binny in November. 6) The EU will assist Palestine in preparing her case for the ICC.
