I guess we'll know then whether Bibi is right that we have reached an agreement with him on settlements. Unless Obama contradicts him, it would appear that the agreement is to give in on the settlements and let Israel go full speed ahead. Last week, Haaretz reported that settlement construction is accelerating. If Obama caves, we can kiss a peace agreement goodbye. I can only hope that Daniel Levy was correct in his op ed of Oct. 4 that Obama is maneuvevering the parties into a position where he wants them, where they will be forced to discuss engame issues. Now, when the Turkish government, Israel's only Islamic friend, has given it a cold shoulder, when the Egyptian FM has refused to sit in the same room with Lieberman, when King Hussein is near to declaring the peace process dead, when Gordon Brown allegedly engaged in a shouting match with Netanyahu last Wednesday, is no time for Obama to let up the pressure on Israel.
