    "whatever happens in the United Nations, you are going to have to talk to the Israelis if you are going to have a state in which your people have self-determination, adding: "You are not going to be able to do an end run around the Israelis." Why not? If the whole world, apart from the US wants a free Palestine in basically the 1967 borders, that's what the world will get. The US no longer has enough political credibility internationally to stop it. The world can see that talking to Israel just means more settlements and more decades of occupation. But we shouldn't be too hard on Obama. He has AIPAC on his back all the time and he's going to have to go there today to pledge loyalty to Israel.
