Unfortunately, there is precious little that Israel can really learn from Barak Obama. His amazing arrogance leads him to pursue domestic and international initiatives that defy logic and the will of his constituents, coddling terrorists and now severely undermining the natural recovery of the US economy. The "summit" between two parties who at this point have little to say to eachother is a cynically arrogant photo-op - the kind Obama's predecesor had no patience for. Netanyahu would be wise to wait for this one-term president to start doing Palestinian public relations alongside Jimmy Carter and hope for more sensible and balanced leadership in the White House.
