The possibility of a Palestinian state has the Israeli government in a panic. For Israel, a Palestinian state means a helt to settlement construction and to greater Israel. It means that Israel will have defined borders. Israel is desperate to avoid this. Obama is falling all over himself to do Israel's bidding. Anyone who thought that America was a fair proker for mideast peace is learning some harsh facts. Israel wants expansion, not peace. America wants whatever Israel wants, although they do their best to hide it. Obama already cast a vote at the UN in favor of settlements. He doesn't want to cast a vote against a Palestiian state the same year. Obama will turn out the be the most pro-settlement president ever. Who woulda thought?
