    Unlike Netanyahu who revels in making - albeit vacuous - speeches in front of the U.S. Congress, Obama has a different and more meaningful agenda: to deliver an appeal to the Israeli public; in particular to its younger generation, to get involved in working for peace in a concrete and comprehensive way, since the same appeals to the current Israeli government have fallen on deaf ears for too long. The message to Netanyahu comes across loud and clear and is a definitive, unequivocal clarion-call expressing Obama's disappointment, disillusionment and frustration with Netanyahu's continual stonewalling and even sabotaging the peace-process.
