    Obama is so utterly clueless when it comes to diplomacy. He created the mess over settlements when he unwisely opened his mouth at the beginning of his Administration, and Abbas has never forgotten. Now Obama is trying to persuade Israel to stop construction for the growing Israeli families in Judea and Samaria with this: From an Israeli perspective, moreover, it’s not clear how much the U.S. assurances are worth. Reportedly, the assurances are (1) that Washington will not ask for a moratorium extension beyond 60 days, (2) that the United States will veto any U.N. Security Council initiative — Arab or otherwise — relating to Arab-Israeli peace during the agreed one-year negotiating period, and (3) that Washington will accept the legitimacy of existing Israeli security needs and not seek to redefine them. OK, Barry, so if Israel continues to build, you will abandon them at the UNSC and will question their security needs? Nice. Thug.
