Obama has made a last ditch attempt to get Israel and Palestine back to the table and stave off the UN General Assembly admitting Palestine as a full member. The effort was categorically rejected by Netanyahu and Israel. Obama has even been smeared by Israel for trying to restore the old myth that someday there would be a negotiated peace. All that has been revealed is American impotence and Israeli intransigence. The world will now have to do as it will if there is ever to be peace in the region.
