The Palestinians know they have a good friend in the White House. However , it seems that that frined is limping to the finish line , when we will wish him farewell. Israel would be smart to ask for a period of review and self introspection and take the Palestinian issue off the agenda. There are many pressing issues to deal with currently. Poverty, Iran and others. Let some minor official meet Mitchell but not Bibi. The next year will pass quickly and when Obama is fighting for re-election he certainly won't have time for the Pals and certainly will try to not antagonize the Jewish vote. We must just shift the prorities and governmant agenda.
