Why you call it obstinate? Do you honestly think that Obama or any other nation has the right to dictate & order another soverign nation to accept a "do as I say" attitude on them? I dont think so. Yes, Obama can suggest. You see, Obama is in a bind, so in order to save face in front of the arab world, HE is behaving obstninate & openly showing hatred to Bibi because Bibi did not bow down to him. Then Obama comes with the blackmail stratagy regarding monetary grants so as to apply pressure. Muslim blood runs in the veins of Obama & he wants to be in the good books of the arabs. I dont trust his style & will backfire. weare dealing with Terror nations and it seems that everyone has forgotten the majors wars inflicted on this nation whereby the arabs were defeated & they still wont recognize Israel then the threat of Iran, etc etc. Obama cannot force Israel into a submission. Think twice, this is a face saving strategy. Too bad, so sad.
