The problem is that Abbas does not represent the Palestinians ,Hamas does and what Hamas says is the truth ,the continuation of the armed conflict . Obama is very good at make pretend ,just like in Afganistan ,the elections were a farce with millions of Afganistans by choice not participating and the results of those participating forged .America declared the elections a total sucess . Netanyahu you will be ruthlessly pressurized and bullied by Obama ,Abbas will be praised for just showing up,and when you Netanyah give huge concessions to the puppet Abbas ,Obams wil declare the talks a total sucess and Israel will once again pay a needless price because the real Palestinian representatives Hamas were not there .
