    It seems to me that in his 2nd.Term, Obama is starting to apply his own commitments for a real and just peace in the World and especially in the Middle East. In fact, the second term frees him from all the fears and the build-ups of first term presidency and he can go into history as one who could say NO to the unjust and conspiracies of previous US presidents,which were put on other nations, like those in the Middle East. For Obama, dealing honestly with Netanyahu means to confront him by all means to fullfil his pledges he declared in Cairo 4 years ago towards the Arab nations, in which he promised to achieve peace, justice and security for the Middle East, especially for the Palestinian issue . In my opinion, time has arrived now for fullfilling and here we see Obama start moving and saying, yes I am still there... That said, it seems that Ehud Barak goes to the USA carrying a message to Obama, trying to avoid what Obama may carry with. Is he going to be successful? I doubt, as a second-term Obama will not be the same Obama we get accustomed to!

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
