Obama has decided that if he can't please everybody, he will at least please Israel. The Shas chariman said that he wants a letter in his hand from Obama. Obviously he doesn't trust the POTUS. I am sure that Obama will do everything necessary to make the Shas chairman happy. As for the Palestinians, Obama expects them to show up and receive a pie in their face as usual. Why should that part change. The only real change is that Obama has doubled the salary usualy paid to Israel to throw the pie. Good job POTUS. It's not only the Palestinians you are trashing, it is the American tax payers to say nothing of your nation. Actually I am no longer sure which nation you claim.
